As one of my favorite television shows likes to point out: bad gas travels fast in a small town. And so it is in Easter Cove, the setting for Blow the Man Down. It’s a tiny fishing community in New England that, if you’re old enough to remember, may remind you a bit of the […]

Theatre Review: HEAD OVER HEELS Keeps the Beat Going Strong at New Line

Posted: March 15, 2020 at 3:25 pm   /   Local

I had completely forgotten how many hits The Go-Go’s had – and then I saw Head Over Heels at New Line Theater.

It’s a pretty unique jukebox musical, adapted from the 16th Century Elizabethan play The Countess […]

Perhaps the story sounds good on paper: Diesel is a super-powered, unstoppable soldier who is out for revenge. Could […]

Movie Review: The Way Back, Starring; Ben Affleck

Posted: March 5, 2020 at 11:45 am   /   Local

The Way Back, Ben Affleck’s new film, is without a doubt, the best work he’s ever done. Affleck’s new film in a lot of ways is more than just a movie. It’s a comeback of one of Hollywood’s most polarizing actors. It’s also not flashy, like Batman or Argo. Affleck has never been rawer in […]

Posted: February 28, 2020 at 10:57 am   /   Live Theater, Live Theater Reviews, St. Louis Events

“Once not long ago, a group of musicians came to Israel from Egypt. You probably didn’t hear about it. It wasn’t very important.” This is how the ten-time Tony Award-winning musical The Band’s Visit opens.
