    Take a literary trip in Micanopy

    A peek behind wall at Harry Potter's Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando

    Embarking on a Wizarding World of Harry Potter tour at Universal Orlando
    For months, I have skulked around the edges of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, peeking over fences, peering through cracks in the construction walls, standing on ledges to get better camera angles, slithering up the exit of Dueling Dragons and...

    In the history of American cinema, D.W. Griffith's 1915 landmark "The Birth of a Nation" is the gift that keeps on generating misgivings. Based on Thomas Dixon Jr.'s 1905 novel "The Clansman," and the subsequent stage version, Griffith's 12-reel Civil...

     Theater review: 'Potted Potter' at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts
    The young (and young at heart) fans of boy wizard Harry Potter will immediately see that things are awry with the set of "Potted Potter." There's a coconut palm growing in the "Forbidden Forest." There's a large wardrobe at center stage. "How else...
