  • REVIEW: 'The Rose Tattoo' by Shattered Globe Theatre

     REVIEW: 'The Rose Tattoo' by Shattered Globe Theatre
    Three years ago, Shattered Globe produced "Orpheus Descending," Tennessee Williams' gothic tragedy about an unhappily married Italian woman on the Gulf Coast and the drifter who temporarily lifts her out of emotional limbo, featuring a blistering go-for-...
  • 'Sons of Liberty' takes a few too many liberties on History

    'Sons of Liberty' takes a few too many liberties on History
    Seven years ago, the History Channel became just plain History, a single-word name being perceived, one supposes, as hipper, more youthful, like Common or Fergie. If the network executives were as interested in accuracy as hipness, they would have...
  • Getty's Josef Koudelka retrospective is grim yet riveting

    Given subjects that repeatedly focus on human barbarism, whether between people or by people against the natural environment, you won't find yourself smiling much in the large Josef Koudelka retrospective at the J. Paul Getty Museum. But again and again,...
  • Miguel Harth Bedoya and L.A. Phil have special chemistry

    Miguel Harth Bedoya and L.A. Phil have special chemistry
    Scientists have made a considerable effort to identify the characteristics of 103 elements, from hydrogen to lawrencium, and explain the complexities of their interactions. But better living through chemistry only goes so far. The chemistry underlying...
  • Review: 'Swan Lake' from Orlando Ballet

     Review: 'Swan Lake' from Orlando Ballet
    Has it really been nearly three years since Orlando Ballet told the story of "Swan Lake"? Much seems familiar in artistic director Robert Hill's slimmed-down version of the classic tragedy, but new faces fill several roles. Chief among them are guest...
  • So the S&M-themed 'R100' is meant to be funny?

    So the S&M-themed 'R100' is meant to be funny?
    Like some lunatic hybrid of David Fincher's "The Game" and Takashi Miike's "Audition" reimagined as a comedy, "R100" revolves around a one-year subscription to an S&M service — much like a fruit-of-the-month club, only with a selection of...
  • 'Son of a Gun' crime thriller misfires

    'Son of a Gun' crime thriller misfires
    "Son of a Gun" is a derivative crime thriller that sputters when it should propel, skims when it should probe. Although first-time feature writer-director Julius Avery may aspire to become a sort of Aussie Michael Mann — and perhaps lays an apt...
  • The neo-folk-tinged 'Song One' is tiresome in its preciousness

    The neo-folk-tinged 'Song One' is tiresome in its preciousness
    As a chance to see performances by neo-folk acts, the music-centric "Song One" is a serviceable sampler. But anyone with the slightest allergy to emo-tinged millennial attitudinizing should steer clear. The movie is an album-sleeve-thin romance steeped in...
  • 'We'll Never Have Paris' is a fun, quirky romantic comedy

    'We'll Never Have Paris' is a fun, quirky romantic comedy
    The amusing "We'll Never Have Paris" bills itself as "based on a true story … unfortunately." That wryly catastrophic tone informs much of this hangdog romantic comedy set at a pivotal point in the longtime relationship of neurotic florist-...
  • Review: Saxophonist Chris Potter at Jazz Showcase

    Review: Saxophonist Chris Potter at Jazz Showcase
    The year has just begun, but surely one of its best performances has just occurred. Playing before a crowded house Thursday evening at the Jazz Showcase, saxophonist Chris Potter led the current version of his Underground quartet in an opening set of...
  • REVIEW: 'West Side Story' by Drury Lane Theatre

     REVIEW: 'West Side Story' by Drury Lane Theatre
    "West Side Story," that ever-astonishing work of musical theater, is justly famous for the gangland rumblings between the Jets and the Sharks, stunning Jerome Robbins feats of 1950s choreography that advanced the Arthur Laurents narrative like no dance in...
