“Terms of Endearment” Plays Like the Greatest Hits of an Outdated Film

“Terms of Endearment” is a beloved eighties film that tells the tale of women in the South, finding their place in a man’s world and keeping each other strong through it all. The film went to win its fair share of Academy Awards, and on its way, it managed to achieve a status that was unrivaled in the genre for years. Now, […]

“Rapture, Blister, Burn” Brings Us Deep Into What It Means To Be A Woman

Theater is such an interesting monster. It’s a place where discussions can happen while a story forms around them. It’s a place where we not only suspend our disbelief, but accept it as fact… for at least the runtime of the show. It’s a place where, in the most intimate of venues, we are close to the stranger of bedfellows. […]

Welcome Back to NYC “The Motherf**ker with the Hat”

The layers on Stephen Adly Guirgis’s “The Motherf**ker with the Hat” are so delightfully constructed that peeling them back is pure theatrical joy. It’s a rarity in most urban plays, where playful language sometimes takes over theme and plot. Not for Guirgis; he sees the beauty in people that society has dismissed and he brings it out for us to […]

Spooky Pranks for Halloween

If, like me, you love a good scare, then Halloween is your holiday. I do my best to fill my October with as many scary movies, haunted houses and costume-clad experiences as I can. But sometimes, it’s fun to go that extra mile. Sure, you can watch one of the many scary movies on demand (with some wine, of course), […]

Dandy Darkly Brings his “Myth Mouth” to NYC in Style

There I was, just a regular night in New York City. I was going to the dungeon famously named Under St. Mark’s, known for being a staple on the off-off Broadway scene. As I went down the stairs and inside the space, things changed. The atmosphere was different. I was being transported somewhere, and that somewhere had a bizarre clown guiding […]

“Orwell in America” and the Tale of Two Great Performances

George Orwell is one of those names that seem to be on everyone’s mind even when you have never read a work of his. His unique take on communism, totalitarianism, and the vain nature of men has been studied for decades now, in high school and colleges. His work has been opening minds to have their own beliefs since he […]

A Diamond in the Rough: Aladdin on Broadway

  An evening on Broadway is always a treat, but unfortunately some shows get more hype than others (we’re looking at you, Hamilton). Just because you can’t afford the sky high ticket prices for Hamilton is no reason to skip out on seeing a Broadway show altogether. And what shows have better music than Disney? (Trick question: none.) We recently […]

There’s Nothing Scary About Switching to Verizon FiOS

For all you New Yorkers still using Time Warner Cable…what’re you waiting for?! When I used that service, my cable cut in and out all the time and my internet was slow. Verizon FiOS uses fiber optics to give you the fastest internet speed and it also has plenty of TV channels and the best on demand selection I’ve seen. […]
