Enjoy Your Summer with Great Music at “Songbook Summit”

There’s something unique and magical about the Great American Songbook that makes it timeless. Maybe it’s the fusion of jazz with the sounds of musical theater, creating a style that is both black and white. Maybe it’s because it didn’t seem like appropriation, but actual admiration, in which this music was founded. I don’t know the reasons, besides the fact […]

“Kunstler” Sets to Explore the Man, Digs Into the Politics

There are personalities so big that no matter the profession, the grand stage just follows them around. Some of them do something huge with the bare minimum, they themselves make it special. Others use opportunities to create amazing things with already amazing products, but they themselves stand out from the crowd. Then there are the people like William Kunstler, people that […]

Puppets and Wit Drive the Drama in “Made in China”

In a bleak world, where things do not seem to make sense, we are constantly looking for logic or reason that will explain the things that we cannot comprehend. This search always puts us on a journey in which we have to delve into an abyss of despair to come out enlightened, and somehow put the dots together of something […]

“Terms of Endearment” Plays Like the Greatest Hits of an Outdated Film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, […]

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

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 […]

“Maestro” is a Virtuoso Portrayal of an American Icon

“Butterfly” Captivates on 59E59

There’s a certain complexity inside of us that is impossible to express in words. The human mind has a way of interpreting what it sees to fit its own reality. That reality is shared but still remains individualistic. While what we all see is the same, we don’t give it the same meaning. That’s the beauty of being alive most […]

“L’amant Anonyme” is a Minimalistic Misfire

I will always remember what a friend of mine told me once upon a time on his way to watching an opera which was being performed at a black box. He said “I’m not excited, operas on small stages do not work.” Obviously, I went ballistic, saying that art can be done anywhere with the right story and the right […]

“Connected” is Worth Swiping Right For

The human being was made to be social. To unite in tribes and construct civilizations. The very nature of our progress is simple: we must woo somebody into attraction until that attraction becomes a real connection that can be explored. From that connection a family is formed, then two start to multiply. That family will then become part of a […]
