Harlem by Langston Hughes What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore— And then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over— like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode? [...]

This week, I’d like to feature one of my favorite singers and actresses of the past 20 years- Vanessa Paradis.  If you are only familair with Ms. Paradis as the wife of Johnny Depp, you are sadly missing out.  In France, this woman is a star-and has indeed earned it. Related Posts:No Related Posts

It’s A Family Thing At “The House Of Yes”

by Karen Tortora-Lee April 20, 2010 Manhattan

Full disclosure – I went to Heathcliff Entertainment’s production of The House of Yes (written by Wendy MacLeod and directed by Brandt Reiter) full of anticipation.  The movie of the same name (based on MacLeod’s play) had long been my litmus test; if someone loved the film as much as I did, then I knew we’d [...]

by Karen Tortora-Lee April 17, 2010 Off-Off-Broadway

I haven’t seen a really good on-stage comedy in a while, so when I heard about No Tea Production’s latest show called Poppycock (written and directed by Jeremy Mather) playing at Under Saint Marks I can definitely say I was excited to see what the evening had in store.

What’s The Word I’m Looking For? – “The Realm” Will Leave You Speechless

by Karen Tortora-Lee April 11, 2010 Manhattan

I think it’s happened to all of us; there’s that one great memory – a perfectly time phrase at just the right moment, or a they’ll-never-believe-this experience you shared with someone, or a you-had-to-be-there anecdote that left the two of you shaking with laughter.  Years later you bring up the treasure to your partner in [...]

If you don’t believe read-heads have more fun, just ask Jody Christopherson about her experience working on Erin Browne’s new play TRYING, premiering at The Bushwick Starr, on April 15th. Ok, I admit  the “red-head” line is not the most original way to start an interview, but I’m not fishing for a bloggie award and [...]

Review of ‘Chloe’

by Anne Jordanova April 2, 2010 Film

It was great to see the crowd for this film at my local cinema last night. Yes, the reviews for this look like they are all over the map. But let it be said that without this fantastic casting (Julianne Moore, Liam Neeson and Amanda Seyfried-a powerful erotic, sexual trio), the glorious cinematography and the [...]

Antonio’s Guide To April

by Antonio Miniño April 1, 2010 Art

It’s creeping up, you can tell by the rainy days and not-so-freezing weather. There’s also that mixed fashion I so love in Spring and the month of April; half the population is braving the still somewhat crisp temperatures and taking off the layers and boots, while the other is still hiding behind the winter parkas [...]

I’m STUFFED

by Antonio Miniño April 1, 2010 Art

“Through the magic of Leprechauns, Papa Smurf, Michael J. Fox, and all other things small, we make wee-sized, delightful stuffed animal versions of you.” That’s how the masterminds over at “I Am A Stuffed Animal” describe their ingenious service.
