BLADE RUNNER 2049

By | October 5th, 2017|Action & Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Movies, Science Fiction, Thriller|0 Comments

BLADE RUNNER 2049 continues a tale that asks what it means to be human, but despite being almost an hour longer than the original, is a much more routine experience, building on the first installment without expanding its thematic footprint. The sequel lacks the tension, the mystery, and the emotional resonance of 1982's BLADE RUNNER, but is [...]

THEATER: MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG

By | September 19th, 2017|Theater|0 Comments

By any measure, "Merrily We Roll Along" the Huntington Theatre Company's season opener is a first rate show with a brilliant cast, directed by Maria Friedman who recreates her smash hit London production with a challenging book by George Furth about luck and choice, and a Sondheim score that sheds light on those murky twists [...]

THEATER/THREE TO SEE: CONSTELLATIONS/IDEATION/& GYPSY

By | September 19th, 2017|Theater|0 Comments

Here are three to see onstage right now beginning with CONSTELLATIONS presented by Underground Railway Theater at the Central Square Theater. This is one of the most fascinating and brilliantly performed productions I've ever seen locally, as emotionally charged as it is intellectually stimulating. I was entranced at first sight of the set-- a luminous, [...]

THEATER/”BURN ALL NIGHT”: End of the World premiere!

By | August 31st, 2017|Theater|0 Comments

In the last days of summer, an out-of-this-world, world premiere, end-of-the-world musical has sprung up at OBERON (through September 8) the A.R.T.'s second stage where anything can and often does happen. BURN ALL NIGHT seems to be channeling the zeitgeist as it speaks to looming disaster: four millennials trying to find their way through life [...]

MOVIES: MARJORIE PRIME/A Ghost Story

By | August 19th, 2017|Drama, Fantasy, Movies, Romance, Science Fiction|0 Comments

What would you do if you could conjure up deceased friends and relatives and re-visit your past? That is the premise of "Marjorie Prime" a new film based on a Pulitzer Prize-nominated play by Jordan Harrison which made a splash at Sundance. I found the film more suggestive than the play, and it is having [...]
