By |2020-12-23T16:20:55-05:00December 23rd, 2020|Dance, Drama, Family, Fantasy, Kids, Movies, Music, Musicals, Theater|0 Comments

The two events I recommend here are among the most joyous presentations of the season, and are just as, if not more effective in virtual form! One marks its 5oth ANNIVERSARY this year, that medieval pageant celebrating the winter solstice known as THE CHRISTMAS REVELS. The second has been a classic on page, stage, and [...]

LABOR DAY WEEKEND MOVIES CONTINUE: MULAN

By |2020-09-06T00:00:47-05:00September 5th, 2020|Action & Adventure, Drama, Epic & Historical, Family, Fantasy, Movies|0 Comments

MULAN just opened virtually and it's too bad you can't see this on the big screen. It's an expansively shot and handsomely choreographed epic adventure that will inspire all the women (and the men I hope) in your household; it inspires me still, and I know the story well. Disney's original animated version came out [...]

MOVIES– SWEET & SOUR: “THE SECRET: DARE TO DREAM”/ “THE RENTAL”

By |2020-08-03T16:22:10-05:00August 3rd, 2020|Drama, Family, Horror, Kids, Movies, Romance, Thriller|0 Comments

These two films couldn't be more different and I liked them both-- one in spite of its being outright awful and ridiculous, the other because it pretty much accomplished what it set out to do. THE SECRET: DARE TO DREAM stars Katie Holmes as a down-on-her-luck widow named Miranda raising three kids when [...]

Who said you can't put theater on TV? The Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical HAMILTON has made the quantum leap from stage to screen and the result is a stunning, exhilarating, technical and artistic triumph. The musical's power, brilliance, and relevance has been cinematically galvanized for a country again on the brink of revolution.  [...]

Like everyone, I've been re-inventing my life virtually and on the lookout for things to circulate on social to help and entertain and spice things up and make us laugh.  But I also need to keep moving, and I hate, repeat HATE to exercise.  However,  I love to dance. THIS VIDEO got me out of [...]
