    Dan Fishback's Madonna & Britney Early Twentieth Century Russian Émigré Musical Comedy Is Unmissable

    There are two huge, delightful surprises in Dan Fishback's new play "The Material World," playing Fridays and Saturdays all July at Dixon Place's HOT! Festival for queer performance. One is that the play, which has an anachronistic set-up at the heart of its absurdist drama treats...

    Now and Then: The Long, Slow Death of the Movie Musical

    It's been 60 years since the musical's prime — when Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen, those sorcerers of sound, joined forces on "Singin' in the Rain" — so you'll forgive me if this week's theatrical screenings in honor of the anniversary feel less like a celebration than an obituary. The musical is dea...

    Review: Visceral 'The Dark Knight Rises' Is A Cinematic, Cultural & Personal Triumph

    In a season filled with big movies that somehow ask even bigger questions, “The Dark Knight Rises” feels like the superego to its competition’s id. An action opus that manages at to be both viscerally and intellectually engaging, Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated third Batman film comes full ci...

    Union Square - directed by Nancy Savoca, written by Nancy Savoca and Mary Tobler

    A set of sisters in crisis are on display in Nancy Savoca's long awaited return - Union Square. Mira Sorvino plays Lucy, a hot mess of a woman who seems bizarrely out of control for an adult. She's one of those characters that when you see her first on screen you cringe -- she wears complete...

    I was charmed, and pleasantly surprised, when I saw 'Ice Age' a decade ago. Its enormous success has prompted multiple sequels, which have made a ton of money around the world (with Fox cannily hiring well-known actors and comedians to provide the voices for their individual countries). This money m...

    Review: Michael Winterbottom's 'Trishna' Is Picturesque, But Entirely Lacking In Passion

    Over his career, Michael Winterbottom has hopped frequently from genre to genre, from subject matter to subject matter, rarely covering the same territory twice. But one of the few things he has returned to is the work of Thomas Hardy. The late 19th century British author has so far inspired two of ...
