  • The former Brookfield's Children's Zoo has gone wild

    The former Brookfield's Children's Zoo has gone wild
    Somehow in the long and careful planning for its all-new Hamill Family Wild Encounters attraction, Brookfield Zoo left out a warning sign: "Caution: Tippi Hedren May Want to Think Twice Before Entering." The potential issue for the star of Alfred...
  • Movie review: 'Magic Mike' sequel should have stuck to what it does best

    You can't tease everyone. Unfortunately, the hotly anticipated stripper sequel "Magic Mike XXL" tries to do just that, resulting in a Bud Light version of Steven Soderbergh's original, surprise-hit home brew. By trying to appeal to young women, middle-...
  • MTV's 'Scream' feels like a retro take on the film franchise

    MTV's 'Scream' feels like a retro take on the film franchise
    "Scream," the metafictional slasher-movie franchise, has made its way to television, where it premieres as a series Tuesday on MTV. If you're going to make a TV show about murdering teenagers, that does somehow seem the likely place. Kevin Williamson,...

    San Francisco Opera looks backward with the World War II-set 'Two Women'
    On a day in which this city ecstatically celebrated the Supreme Court decision to legalize same-sex marriage, "Two Women," you might think, could mean only one thing Sunday afternoon. But not at San Francisco Opera, which offered a new opera of that...

    Vanya and his grumpy sibs play it for laughs at the Goodman
    "I dreamed I was 52 and unmarried," says Sonia, one of the trio of siblings in Christopher Durang's very droll new comedy featuring the middle-aged children of a pair of academics, literary professors who named their kids after characters in the plays...
  • Review: Patti Lupone takes the limelight in 'Shows For Days'

    Community theater gets a lot of knocks for being amateurish, but Douglas Carter Beane may have elevated it to sympathetic comedic heights with his new play "Shows For Days." The quirky coming-of-age comedy, which opened Monday night at Lincoln Center's...
  • DVD Review: Answering the call of 'Fargo'

    DVD Review: Answering the call of 'Fargo'
    Kumiko (Rinko Kikuchi, who was Oscar-nominated for her role in “Babel”) plays a 29-year-old Tokyo office worker with no life to speak of. Her job is demeaning, and she has no close friends (except her bunny rabbit). Her future is a void. So...
  • 'Inside Out' is a brilliant emotional roller-coaster

    Ever since the debut of "Toy Story" in 1995, audiences have become accustomed to each Disney and Pixar film wrapping its story in layers of laughs and genuine feelings. The latest in a string of heartwarming hits, "Inside Out," may be the filmmakers' most...
  • It's all great fun as animals run amok in CBS' 'Zoo'

    It's all great fun as animals run amok in CBS' 'Zoo'
    I think I speak for everyone when I say that television has ignored the dramatic potential of the rogue American zoologist for far too long. Mercifully, just such a man anchors the new CBS series "Zoo," which debuts Tuesday. That he is played by the...
  • The Grateful Dead jam in mostly perfect harmony in Santa Clara

    The Grateful Dead jam in mostly perfect harmony in Santa Clara
    The VW buses were supplanted by Ubers. Marijuana was more often vaporized than burned. And bright iPhone screens replaced Bic lighters during "Morning Dew." But the music was nearly the same: the Dead, jamming in (mostly) perfect harmony. No Jerry...

     Review: Grant Park Chorus sings of the wonder, mystery of birth
    The success of James MacMillan's “Quickening,” in its Midwest premiere by the Grant Park Orchestra and Chorus under Carlos Kalmar's direction Friday night at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park, was all the more remarkable given the...
