In honor of the 80th anniversary of the beloved film, Art Factory, a small professional theatre just outside of downtown, put on a reimagined production of The Wizard of Oz. I am not the biggest fan of this famous story, but seeing this show was the most fun I have had in the theatre for awhile. Art...

Due to the success of You Can’t Take It With You, I can say with all honesty that I walked into Junie B. Jones Jr. the Musical with a small feeling of excitement. That’s right, I was excited for a musical about Junie B. Jones. I honestly thought that I would never write those words. Junie B. Jone...

Just a few days ago, I thought about how lucky I had been to finally see some good movies as 2019 began to draw to a close. To be completely honest, I wish I hadn’t said that. Why? Because Gemini Man hadn’t been released yet. Gemini Man is directed by Ang Lee and stars Will Smith as Henry Brogan, an agin...

Since it’s only a few days until Halloween, I can only assume that the brilliant minds in Hollywood decided that it’s the perfect time to dump a terrible horror movie into theaters. Most audiences are likely not going to see Countdown. But, I did. Countdown is Justin Dec’s directorial debut and stars El...

The audience’s murmuring simmers down to silence as the orchestra begins the overture. The world disappears as the music swells and the lights brighten. Time stops. The heart races faster to keep up with the drums. A deep breath and the curtain opens in a new town. Homework and  football games no longer ...

Wow. I must admit that I’m not an avid playgoer, nor do I like to walk into anything with any sort of expectations, but I wasn’t expecting this. You Can’t Take It With You, a play by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, tells the story of Tony Kirby and Alice Sycamore, played by seniors Marcus ...

Before I begin, I must admit that I’m not the world’s biggest Judy Garland fan. I grew up with, and still adore, The Wizard of Oz, but I was never really interested in who Dorothy was in real life. However, after seeing Judy, I’m beginning to wish I was. Judy is directed by Rupert Goold and...

It’s safe to say that 2019 has been a largely disappointing year for film. Despite the success of films such as Avengers: Endgame and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, highly anticipated movies such as Glass, Captain Marvel and Shazam have been anywhere from sub-par to downright bad. I’ve spent the bet...

The music industry is a Wild West-like landscape full of equal parts up-and-coming artists and dying artists. In 2019, this landscape is harsher than ever. With the advent of services like Soundcloud and Spotify, it has been easier than ever before to let the world be known of what you can do with y...

Spoiler Warning for those who are not caught up with all MCU movies (including Endgame).   A new trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home was dropped on the heels of Endgame, literally. When Endgame first came out, one of the previews was for Far From Home. However, if you were to see Endgame to...
