Mr. Burns, a post-electric play By Anne Washburn Directed by Bill Gillett October 10-12, 7:30pm October 13, 2:30pm After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors share a campfire and begin to piece together the plot of “The Simpsons” episode “Cape Feare” entirely from memory. Seven years later, this and other snippets of pop culture (sitcom plots, commercials, jingles, and pop songs) have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society, sincerely trying to hold onto its past. A tribute to live theater, and the resilience of Bart Simpson through the ages, Mr. Burns is an animated exploration of […]
Rep Stage, the professional regional theatre in residence at Howard Community College, presents Stephen Temperley’s stunning play, “Souvenir,” which tells the story of Florence Foster Jenkins, a famous society eccentric who suffered under the delusion that she was a great coloratura soprano. Her “singing” career culminated in a single 1944 Carnegie Hall concert. Hilarious and poignant, “Souvenir” is told through the eyes of Foster’s accompanist, Cosme McMoon. Runs September 5–22. Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center. A post-show discussion will be held following the performances on September 8, 13 and 20. A pre-show lecture will be held at 12:30pm on […]
As eclectic and idiosyncratic as Cumming himself, Legal Immigrant, a collection of musings on his 10 years as a US citizen, growing older, and what it feels like to be an immigrant in today’s America (regardless of your prefix) is a true, old-fashioned cabaret featuring a smorgasbord of genres. Ever wanted to hear Schubert and Peggy Lee together in one song? You Will! Hits by Scottish treasures The Proclaimers also make an appearance, and there might even be a Disney Princess medley sung without a drop of irony.

A bent take on the year in cinema You’ll hear a lot of different opinions about the movie year of 2017. Some people think it was an absolute crap year for film, some will point out the few truly great films of the year, and some will call it an average year. I’ll call it average. There were quite a few films I enjoyed (and for the record there are a lot of 2017 releases I’ve yet to see), but there were few films that fall into my “I’d watch that again” category. Some films unexpectedly caught me off guard, […]
Call Me By Your Name is a slow burn of longing and desire A new film is getting a lot of buzz right now not only for its awards possibilities, but for its subject matter as well. Call Me By Your Name, based on the novel by André Aciman, stars Timothée Chalamet (also getting notice for his role in Lady Bird) as Elio, a 17-year-old living in a small town in Northern Italy with his parents. His father (Michael Stuhlbarg) is an antiquities and archeology professor, and each summer for six weeks the family hosts a visiting grad student to […]
Especially in Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water After some big, big movies featuring Gothic horror (Crimson Peak) and giant robots battling giant monsters (Pacific Rim), director Guillermo del Toro returns to the smaller, fairy-tale films that first brought him widespread acclaim (think The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth) with The Shape of Water, a very unusual romance film.
Coco will fill your heart When Pixar isn’t making movies about toys, fish, cars, emotions or monsters, you can say their human characters have been pretty… white. Hoping to rectify that situation and add a bit more diversity to their films, the studio has put together their first movie featuring a full cast of Mexican characters and set the story during one of the biggest holidays in the country, Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead. If you’re unfamiliar with the holiday, or just know about it from the cute decorated skeletons you see around Halloween, it is […]
