MY WEEKLY READER NELLIE MCKAY Nellie McKay has a new album and she's ready to...storm the Bastille! Covering classic pop tunes from the 1960s, McKay brings alive the era when protest didn't seem pointless, without ever...

Remembering Sidney Lumet

Alex Simon | April 2, 2015 | Entertainment
Lumet was the first director I interviewed whose one-sheet posters hung on my wall as a kid. He was an idol, an icon and an inspiration.

DeShaun Craddock | April 1, 2015 | Entertainment
Last night, I spent some time at Bowery Ballroom and caught MisterWives' Our Own House Tour. The tour, which kicked off this past February, finally made it to the band's hometown of New York City. NYC did not disappoint in welcoming them home, selling out the venue in...

No "high sticking" from this talented musician, each Q&A is fun and as pleasant as a summer breeze.

Movie Review: Woman in Gold -- The Art of Justice

Marshall Fine | April 1, 2015 | Entertainment
Does it matter that Woman in Gold, Simon Curtis' moving drama about a woman seeking the return of art the Nazis stole from her family 50 years earlier, seems stenciled from a familiar template?

Looking Like That, She Was Asking For It. Right?

Iliza Shlesinger | April 1, 2015 | Women
It comes down to this: A man found the shape of a woman's body unacceptable so she was publicly humiliated. This is not a new concept to our society. Looking like that, she was asking for it... Sound like a familiar phrase, anyone?

Brian Fest Is All Harmony and Good Vibrations

Jose Martinez | April 1, 2015 | Entertainment
It made perfect sense when Jameson Irish Whiskey and the Cabin Down Below Band teamed up for Brian Fest, a night to celebrate the music of Brian Wilson to benefit Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.

Movie Review: Furious Seven ...Fabulous!

Carole Mallory | April 1, 2015 | Entertainment
Furious Seven is the best in this franchise. Fresh. Crazy. Riveting. Cars parachuted from an airplane in a sequence that will raise your blood pressure. The team is back!

Stay With Us, Joni. We're Not Done Yet

Cynthia Dagnal-Myron | April 1, 2015 | Entertainment
Oh, you're not goin' anywhere, Miz Joni. I mean that. She just can't. I mean, the woman reads my mind. In fact, all my life, I've felt like Joni Mitchell was reading my diaries. And my dreams. And was telling me the truths I didn't want to admit.

Zaki Hasan | April 1, 2015 | Entertainment
It's time once again for a MovieFilm CommentaryTrack! For this go-round, Brian and I chat up our thoughts and drop copious amounts of useless trivia as we watch one of our favorite films of all time: Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

Theater: Broadway's Golden Age; Seeing Double At 'Twelfth Night'

Michael Giltz | April 1, 2015 | Entertainment
The conceit is simple: each night of Broadway By The Year focuses on 25 years of Broadway, tackling at least one song from a show that premiered each year.

Breaking Good: The Secret Life of RJ Mitte

Jamie Stangroom | March 31, 2015 | UK Comedy
There's only one episode left of Better Call Saul - sad face - and it's got me all nostalgic about the time I met Breaking Bad's RJ Mitte AKA Walt Jr (AKA Flynn). Actually, when I say 'nostalgic', it was only actually a couple of weeks ago, I just don't get out very much.

"Life Itself"  --  Roger Ebert and the Everlasting Power of Movie Criticism

Paul Cantor | March 31, 2015 | Entertainment
That much I gleaned from watching Life Itself, the acclaimed documentary from director Steve James (Hoop Dreams), which is based on Ebert's 2011 memoir, and is actually streaming on Netflix now.

Peggy Siegal Oscar Diary 2015

Peggy Siegal | March 31, 2015 | Entertainment
Having worked on Oscar campaigns for 35 years, I found going to the 87th Academy Awards ceremony a serious revelation of the American zeitgeist. On the other hand, celebrating "Oscar Weekend" was just a hell of a lot of fun.

The 'Zero Effect': Do New Consumption Charts Penalize Compilation Records and Artists Who Window?

Chris Castle | April 1, 2015 | Entertainment
The number of plays from some music streaming services are now being included with sales results to rank releases in various music industry "charts" -- the standard reference point for success in the commercial music business. What are these new charts actually measuring?

Film Review: The Riot Club: 10 More Reasons to Detest Rich People

Brandon Judell | March 31, 2015 | Entertainment
While The Riot Club is fairly predictable, its cast is no doubt a showcasing of the stars of British cinema's future not unlike our own The Outsiders (1983) that supplied us with Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Rob Lowe, Tom Cruise, Diane Lane, Patrick Swayze, and so many more.

Actors' Equity Should Pull National Tours From Indiana

Eric Ulloa | March 31, 2015 | Gay Voices
The theatre community has historically been a place where many LGBT people call home, but also a community that does not stand for oppression or discrimination of any kind.

Make No "Mistake," Cam Is One to Watch!

Brittany Hodak | April 1, 2015 | Entertainment
It's notoriously hard for new female artists to break through at country radio, but Sony's Arista Nashville is betting big on its newest singer/songwriter, Cam, and her upbeat debut "My Mistake" to be the exception to the rule.

'Furious 7'

Dwight Brown | March 31, 2015 | Entertainment
Can't say this is the best film of the franchise, because so many of them have been excellent. But it's easily the most daring. Fasten your seat belts and test the airbags. This one accelerates real fast.
