Concert review: Counting Crows kick it back to... Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz might most resemble Bob Dylan as a songwriter, and most resemble Van Morrison as a singer. Like both of those two, he and his band like to transform even their old favorites into new arrangements, new interpretations and often unexpected directions. That can be a bountiful source of pleasure for devoted fans of the group, but it can also lead to uneven performances, or places where fans who want to hear the songs exactly as they were recorded [...]

Movie review: 'Scotty and the Secret History of... If you lay down on the ground, you have a choice: You can either see dirt or you can see stars. Scotty Bowers was one of those rare people who could see both at the same time. And, oh, what stars he could see: Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Cary Grant, Rock Hudson, Lana Turner, Ava Gardner, Walter Pidgeon and J. Edgar Hoover. Wait, J. Edgar Hoover? What does he have to do with this collection of screen legends? For a full explanation see “Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood, [...]

Movie review: 'Never Goin' Back' and 'Skate...  Amid a bevy of overcast blockbusters, adolescent girls have cast a sliver of sun on the summer movie season in the acclaimed trio of “Hereditary,” “Leave No Trace” and “Eighth Grade.” And to close out the slate, two more teen-centric offerings on post-pubescent angst arrive in the form of “Skate Kitchen” and “Never Goin’ Back.” Neither is in the same league as the other three, but there are pleasures to [...]

Postcard exhibit at the MFA provides look at... Remember the pleasure of receiving a scenic postcard from a traveling relative or friend, before smartphones made that a rarity? If you were alive during the two world wars, you may have received not just travel postcards, but propaganda ones.The exhibit “The Art of Influence: Propaganda Postcards from the Era of the World Wars” at the Museum of Fine Arts is a revealing look at what made these diminutive examples of artistic graphic design so powerful. They were perhaps [...]

MUSIC: Southern Avenue leads straight to... Soul music, like most rhythm and blues, is a musical language that transcends borders and boundaries.

Off the Vine: Too much wine not that good a thing The last time I checked, the Olympics did not include events such as downing a bottle of wine in record time. Sure it’s delicious, pairs well with a wide variety of foods and makes getting together with family and friends extra special. I totally agree with all of that. But one fact must never be overlooked: Wine is an alcoholic beverage and can get you drunk. If you want to enjoy wine to the fullest and avoid the falling-down, brawling, hangover-induced aspect of consuming too much [...]

Movie review: 'Crazy Rich Asians' the party of...  In Singapore, the term shiok is representative of a feeling of sheer happiness and pleasure. And I can’t think of a better description for “Crazy Rich Asians,” the funniest, most joyous movie of the summer. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll hunger for homemade dumplings -- all while basking in the presence of a movie that throws out all the stops with a literal cast of thousands mingling amid budget-busting production designs that [...]

SOUNDS AROUND TOWN: Opera del West celebrates... In 2006, Eve Budnick – then a vocal coach at University of Connecticut – and Rebecca Grimes – one of her students doing a doctorate there – realized that they were both making drives from their homes in MetroWest to school. They got to talking. They also shared an interest in opera, and over many chats, they concluded that there was no opera going on in MetroWest at the time.“We thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if we could start a little [...]

Waltham's Aimee Doherty driving force in... LENOX - Aimee Doherty has graced just about every stage in Boston, but this summer she’s traveled out to Shakespeare & Company in Lenox to give a performance that feels a lot like a career-definer. The Walpole actress is the driving force in an excellent production of “As You Like It,” running through Sept. 2 at Shakespeare & Company’s outdoor venue, The Roman Garden Theatre.It’s a bit of a revelation. Doherty, perhaps best-known for musicals, [...]

Theater: 70 years later, themes of 'South... World War II made the United States a global nation, sending its men and women to battlefields far from home in Europe, Africa and Asia. The war also brought together Americans who would not have met in ordinary times, given the geographical and social divides of our country.Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II transformed the new order into themes for their musical, “South Pacific,” and set them to glorious songs that we still are singing today, nearly 70 years [...]

Journey takes 35,000 back to the future at... It was Back to the Future at Fenway Park Saturday night, as three of the 1980s' most beloved rock 'n' roll bands filled the venerable ballpark with 35,000 or so giddy fans. Marty McFly was not sighted, but pretty much everyone else who was anyone on the rock charts in the '80s was on hand.The official lineup featured co-headliners Journey and Def Leppard, with special guests Cheap Trick, and if that seems like an odd trio in theory, in practice it made for a fairly seamless night [...]
