An End of Summer Reading List

As the summer comes to an end, it always seems like families are trying to fit in one final trip. A summer odyssey is always fun, but who says that adventures can only happen during this time of year? I find that the best adventures come from the books we read. Where else can we go to…

Q&A: Cast of “Fantastic Four”

Since “Iron Man” hit theaters in 2008, the Marvel universe has seemingly taken over the movie world, not unlike one of its hell-bent super villains—only without the mass destruction. Along the way, several established actors have brought Marvel’s comic characters to life. But when Marvel decided to reboot “Fantastic Four,” which hits the big screen…

Concert Review: Idina Menzel at Mizner Park Amphitheater

A flirtatious lesbian performance artist, a misunderstood green witch, a cocaine-addicted prostitute and two Disney princesses. These are just a few of the roles that actress and singer Idina Menzel has embodied over the past two decades. Some will know her from her theater roles in shows like “Rent,” “Wicked” and “If/Then,” all of which…

Theater Review: “Love Letters” at Broward Center

Has technology ruined romance? One of my favorite movie quotes comes from the 2009 romantic comedy “He’s Just Not That Into You,” in which Drew Barrymore’s character is complaining about modern love. “I had this guy leave me a voice mail at work, and so I called him at home, and he emailed me to…

Theater Review: “She Loves Me” at FAU

Lighthearted, romantic and a bit comical are three ways to describe “She Loves Me.” With all of these elements at hand, it should not come as a surprise that the musical is already charming many South Florida theatergoers. Presented by Florida Atlantic University’s (FAU) Department of Theatre and Dance as part of its Festival Rep…

Concert Review: Rascal Flatts at Coral Sky Amphitheatre

The South Florida humidity was out in full force on Saturday night, but that was no problem for Rascal Flatts, whose fans were out in full force as well.

Concert Review: R5 at Mizner Amphitheater

A cool breeze, a great band and feel-good music are the ingredients for a perfect summer night. And that is exactly how Wednesday night felt when R5 came to Boca Raton.

Growing Up Pixar

By now I am sure you have probably heard of Pixar’s latest adventure film, “Inside Out.” It is quickly becoming one of the biggest hits of the summer and is entertaining adults and children alike. As I was watching “Inside Out,” I felt like I was more emotional than the children around me. But the…

If you have not heard of R5, get ready, because the band is about to blow up the charts with its new album, “Sometime Last Night.” The band consists of siblings Riker, Rocky, Rydel and Ross Lynch and family friend Ellington Ratliff.

How Broadway Is Striking A Chord With Millennial Audiences

Kander and Ebb’s 2006 musical, “Curtains,” says there’s “a special kind of people known as show people.” That cannot be truer, but I feel in our day and age, too many people still think of Broadway as the old Ethel Merman-Cole Porter type stuff that does not necessarily appeal to a Millennial audience. However, that…
