Even those who tremble at the phrase "audience participation" end up awash in the bliss of communal exhibitionism -- some even clutching one of the special prizes doled out by ringmaster Owen. Just one of the series' many gifts that keep on giving.

To this day, I'm hard-pressed to think of an experience as simple yet as satisfying as listening to a beautiful story read aloud. They say a picture's worth a thousand words, but judging by the immersive experience these 11 audiobooks give us, a sound can be worth a whole lot more.

I Am Not a Cheese: Schubert's Winter Journey: Anatomy of an Obsession by Ian Bostridge

Glen Roven | Posted 07.06.2015 | Books
Glen Roven

Winter Journey is one of the great feasts of the musical calendar: an austere one, but one almost guaranteed to touch the ineffable as well as the heart. After the last song, "The Hurdy-Gurdy Man," the silence is palpable, the sort of silence that otherwise only a Bach Passion can summon up.

It's approximately 24 hours since the Tony Awards ended -- and, while most of the community is at a Bombshell party, I feel like it's about time to reflect on the night that was.

After the telecast (discussed in my post here), Broadway is all about the after-parties. There is the official Tony Gala at the Plaza. Then each show or each lead producer usually hosts their own party.

First Nighter: The Tonys as Experienced in the Press Room

I notice this is a surprisingly short account of the year's Tony Awards as scoped from the press room. I can only suggest it's an indication of the excitement the event didn't create from start to finish.

Facing a crowd that included his mother and brother as well as Tony Danza, next up for a run at the Café Carlyle, Alan Cumming reminded everyone that he would be hosting the Tony Awards with Kristen Chenoweth on Sunday night, admitting that he was "freaking out."

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love 'The Good Wife'

David Toussaint | Posted 06.14.2015 | Entertainment
David Toussaint

Like most religious awakenings, it didn't happen overnight. I'd heard of this new show The Good Wife, seen ads on bus stops and during commercial breaks for trivial shows like 60 Minutes. It looked silly, something unnecessary in my already busy spiritual TV life.

If you ask me, the prolific John Tiffany and the prolific Steven Hoggett are responsible for the best play ever presented about the Iraq War. So when I learned they were bringing Let the Right One In to the always adventurous St. Ann's, I figured it would be another must.
