Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Movie Review

I've not read the book (other than a few sample pages courtesy of Amazon.com) but I imagine, as was the case with Where the Wild Things Are, that the book is a much more economic and elegant tale than the resulting feature film. The film appears to be riding the coat tails of the recent Diary of a Wimpy Kid films (which do a very good job of translating its literary source to the silver screen) but where the Wimpy Kid films riff neatly on the familiar misfortunes and fears of our youth, the ...

Sweet, Sour and Saucy – Theatre at La Boite

The 1950s inspired radio talkback show features songs of yesteryear from Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Eartha Kitt, along with a dose of dodgy relationship advice from these self-appointed “experts on love”. Barbara and Barry (real life couple Melissa Western and Tnee Dyer) will charm lovers and lonely hearts with their  knockout vocals, virtuosic piano playing, witty repartee… and something they call ‘erotic spoons’. Just in time for the valentine season, audiences ...

Or Forever Hold Your Peace – Theatre at La Boite

Faced with their impending deployment to the Trojan War, a troop of gung-ho soldiers with nothing to lose demand from their leader something unspeakable. Using a sham wedding to the handsome warrior Achilles as bait, Agamemnon lures his daughter to Aulis and sets in motion a chain of events that brings an empire to ruin.
