12 Years a Slave

Steve McQueen's emotionally jarring biopic depicts slavery in a way that few, if any, have ever dared.


Zach Hale
Slavery was a dark and shameful time in American history — unequivocally the darkest. Yet while the era has been portrayed on the silver screen in countless films, director Steve McQueen (ShameHunger) presents it with unprecedented realism in 12 Years a Slave — one of the most profoundly gut-wrenching, visceral works of 21st-century cinema you're bound to encounter.

Carol it

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

If you’re like us, when you read A Christmas Carol, you do it in your best Charles Dickens voice (or at least a British accent). Thankfully, Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park presents Dickens himself (played by Wil Rogers) to tell his story as he would have when he toured America in 1868. The reading starts at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday at the Overholser Mansion, 405 NW 15th St. Tickets are $35. Call 235-3700 or visit

Historically, Oklahoma is known as a supportive military state, and that reputation was reinforced when Devon Energy was recognized as an armed services-friendly employer.

Acting out

The top theatrical production of 2013 doesn’t favor glitz or pomp, but substance.


Larry Laneer
A theater company that was founded to stage musicals produced the best play in 2013, and a theater company that focuses on plays gave us the best musical. Go figure.
