     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...

    Armed with lasers, smoke and a couple of electric fans blowing wind through her hair, Tinashe layered on the pop-diva show business in her performance Thursday night, a hometown stop on the L.A.-based soul singer’s tour. The out-front display¬†at...
  • DVD Review: 'My Winnipeg' reflects the director's eye

    DVD Review: 'My Winnipeg' reflects the director's eye
    Guy Maddin is the most idiosyncratic current filmmaker to come out of Winnipeg... or Canada... or the world... in the last few decades. From his first feature, “Tales from the Gimli Hospital” (1988), through his short “The Heart of the...
