Wilco The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival 2015 ended its first day with a bang. And a series of lightning flashes. Then torrential rain, but not before headliners from Wilco to Keith Urban to Jimmy Cliff worked in as much music as...
Neverland is a traditional musical blessed with moments of magic. That's thanks to Morrison, who, as the imaginative Mr. Barrie, carries the show from start to finish. (And who counts numerous Glee fans in the audience.)
In an exclusive interview with director-producer Linda Yellen, who produced 35 years ago the now classic television-film Playing for Time, we will examine the various approaches of cinema on the subject of the Holocaust.
Whether you like her music or not, she's made a name for herself and has an astronomical following to prove it. But what makes her music so addicting to the thousands of diehard LDR fans? Well I can tell you it isn't just the sound.
I first met Michelle Mackey about a year ago while working on the set of Manhattan Love Story, a short-lived ABC romantic comedy. It was immediately apparent that Mackey was most pleased when we were creating a series of abstract paintings for the show's primary loft set.

The arts cast a peculiar spell. Relationships are forged and avenues are explored that likely would have never been considered. For some time, Jerry was simply a character, a fun-loving fan of The Greatest Show On Earth whose presence and kindness was much appreciated.
After moving to New York City in 2001, and after completing my undergraduate degree in Piano Performance at Howard University in Washington, D.C. and graduate studies at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, MD, one of my favorite things to do was drive by Carnegie Hall and say to myself: "One day I'll perform there."

Marshall Fine Movie Review,
Ex Machina Movie Review,
Ex Machina is both tastily minimal and frustratingly simplistic. Alex Garland's directing debut (he wrote 28 Days Later and Sunshine) is, in essence, a three-hander about three people in a house. OK, a high-tech mansion, but you get the point.
The principals for this season's Ballo are the same that sang the premiere of the current production in 2012 with one main exception -- Beczala taking over the role of King Gustavo III of Sweden. And with Levine now conducting the always splendid Met Orchestra, the evening is a musical joy.
The absurdity inside many of Broadway comedies, a world where anything can happen, comes through in full force this season in the new Living on Love, playing at the Longacre Theater. As opera star Raquel De Angelis, Renée Fleming belts it out while letting it all hang out as a...

Everybody knows about gang comedies, most often as television series. Something less talked about, if ever talked about, are gang tragedies -- or let's say, gang dramas. They exist as well, often as plays.
Williamstown Theatre Festival,
Not enough. An interesting show, to be sure; but in this crowded April, with at least ten intriguing new productions on view, I wonder whether this Visit is quite worth the visit.
Anthony Haden Guest,
Hermeneutics Of New Modernism,
This endlessly-copied artist knows no bounds of time or space. Colette was born in North Africa to mixed ancestry, raised in France and has been characterized by social gadfly Anthony Haden-Guest as "a gauze-draped pillar of the New York art world."

"I always felt like Thomas, I always felt like I was on the periphery of all that stuff, and this desire of a wannabe, well, I am an actor, I spent the last 25 years pretending to be somebody else."

Yes, these contemporary films may be brilliant and present a diverse range of multi-layered gay characters, but they often focus on the monogamous, family-oriented love stories we typically see in mainstream heterosexual narratives. The queercore, rebellious spirit of New Queer Cinema films has slowly become overshadowed by the "ideal" of domesticity and conformity.

The celebrity boîte in the Hotel Carlyle enshrining today's only public mural art of Ludwig Bemelmans is a fitting incubator for the blossoming musical talents of multi-instrumentalist/singer Kate Davis.
No matter how good the cast is (and it is stupendous), the show would be nothing without its witty wordplay. What makes Something Rotten! so special is that it's fun. It's clever, but it doesn't try to be anything it's not.
If you have an "eye for art" and a keen interest in inspecting the surface of works of art, both out of curiosity and a quest for deeper meaning, your abilities are linked to an increasingly outdated notion of connoisseurship.
His conceptualism achieves somethings apparently impossible which is to be experienced at an emotional level. The way, however, his work has been read till now, insists on transforming his pieces into a visual representation of some aspects of continental social philosophy.

Delia Gonzalez's debut titled In Remembrance is released on April 28, 2015 through DFA Records. This is not an average record release. This record has taken several years and is part of a larger multimedia project.
