    Abstract Exhibit 'Cardinal Points' At Pearl Street Gallery

    A traditional landscape has a horizon line, and all of Lindsey Fyfe's little paintings conform to that rule in a minimalist, stripped-down way. As Fyfe's canvases get bigger, however, she tosses aside the rules. She lets her instinct, her arm and the "velocity" of the paint take over, resulting...

              Cheesy Classic 'Timechasers' Gets RiffTrax Treatment

              "Time Chasers" came out in March 1994 and impressed no one. The cheesy thriller told the story an average Joe who turns his airplane into a time machine, then must fight evil henchmen who want to exploit his discovery. A movie this bad is what RiffTrax is made for. RiffTrax, founded by "Mystery...

                      Goodspeed's 'Anything Goes' Sails With A Ship Full Of Talent

                      Nobody, but nobody, can put a dog down his pants the way Stephen DeRosa can. I can think of many shows at the Goodspeed Opera House over the years where the comic relief roles were played by actors who just weren't innately funny. They depended too heavily on a script, or a tradition, or they simply...
