    Theaterworks Celebrates Second Year Of 'Christmas On The Rocks'
    There are many holiday traditions in and around Hartford and on Sunday, yet another joined the ranks, the second annual opening of "Christmas On the Rocks" at Theaterworks. The irreverent tales with a twist about Christmas characters of childhood...

    Nonprofit takes on Liberia's 'other crisis'
    Much is made of the fact that the Baltimore region has no Fortune 500 companies — and only a few in the Forbes 1000 — but you hardly ever hear anyone brag about the number of international do-good organizations with headquarters here. Let me...
  • Searchlight's grand challenge: 'Budapest Hotel' for best picture

    We've been deluged with dozens of variations of "Birdman Soars" headlines in the last couple of days, as Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's ambitious tale of a onetime comic book movie star's quest for reinvention opened to great business last weekend,...
  • John Kass: Political fictions no stranger than reality -- but at least they're less depressing

    Review: 'Tracks' ★★★ 1/2
    All filmgoers have their blind spots, their sore spots and their limits. You may, for example, read about the new film "Tracks," based on the 1980 travel memoir by Robyn Davidson. If Davidson's story is foreign to you, and you know only that the film's...
  • Worst Writers Sought

      I announced this last week in my column, but I figured I also should put the word out here about this year’s local version of the Bulwer-Lytton bad writing contest.   Here’s a quick review of what this is about. The international contest,...
  • The Biblioracle: The rest of the best-sellers

    The Biblioracle: The rest of the best-sellers
    The route to the New York Times Best Seller list has gotten a little shorter. The reason? They've added more lists. It's kind of like Costco opening more lines when the existing ones get too long because nothing kills the shopper's high of getting...

    'Gone Girl' author Gillian Flynn makes confident leap into screenwriting
