Movie review: Daniela Vega delivers powerful...   There are actors and there are stars, and Chile’s Daniela Vega is a lot of both in the Oscar-nominated “A Fantastic Woman.” It’s a stunning performance of pulsating power. But more than a personal triumph, Vega establishes a milestone in the push for equality playing a transgender woman determined to properly grieve for her recently deceased lover.In what should be easy and just, her Marina, a 27-year-old aspiring opera singer, is cruelly [...]

Movie review: A hearty 'Party'   There are no canapes or hors d'oeuvres, but there’s a lot of punch at “The Party.” And just about everyone in attendance leaves Sally Potter’s acerbic soirée battered and bloody -- if not dead. Even better, all this black and blue is delivered in glorious black and white by a septet of splendid actors spewing deliciously venomous discourse rendering you dazzlingly dizzied.Even if you’re afraid of Virginia Woolf you’ll [...]

Theater: 'Waitress' serves up a good time The cute and quirky coming-of-motherhood tale, “Waitress,” is the rare Broadway musical that focuses more on story than  spectacle.  This show has no crashing chandeliers, no shimmering candelabra dancing across the stage, no circus acrobatics. It’s just a tightly woven, often funny, little story of love, life, friendship and motherhood with nothing to distract from the music and emotions – except for the “biblically good” pies. From Deep [...]

Movie review: 'Game Night' is a winner  Oh, the games people play. And the games played on them. Just ask the group of friends caught up in the unexpected chicanery of “Game Night” when they discover the all-for-fun murder-mystery contest they’ve engaged in turns out to involve a very real kidnapping. Suddenly, instead of turning over clue cards, they’re outrunning mobsters, dodging bullets and trying to stop a Learjet from taking off. Maybe the premise isn’t the most plausible, but [...]

Music: Favorable outlook for up-and-coming...

Movie review: Words wound in Oscar-nominated...  The world probably would be a better place if we all kept our mouths shut. Or, at least that’s the takeaway from “The Insult,” the Oscar-nominated courtroom drama from former Quentin Tarantino sidekick Ziad Doueiri.In it, the Lebanon native takes a harsh look at his homeland and the uneasy alliance between the ruling Christians and the ever-expanding Muslim population, many of whom are exiled Palestinians. Their distrust for each other reaches back [...]

ART's Diane Paulus combines theater, activism -...  When Diane Paulus decided to create the musical “Waitress” at the A.R.T., she did not predict the #MeToo movement that would follow six years later and heighten the show’s relevance. But she did feel that domestic abuse was not receiving the attention it deserved and that she could tell a story through music to reveal its profound effects.“The idea that a musical could do this motivated me,” said Paulus, the artistic director of the [...]

Music: Seth Lakeman: Touring with Plant is a... Robert Plant's solo career has been one of constant exploration, as the former Led Zeppelin vocalist seeks out new and ever more intriguing musical styles, from all sorts of world music to his bluegrass intersection with Allison Krauss. But Plant's latest foray might well be considered getting back to his roots. He'd become a fan of the acclaimed British folk multi-instrumentalist, Seth Lakeman, and over the past year or so Lakeman is not only opening his concerts--as he [...]

Movie review: 'Black Panther' is red hot  The precious metal vibranium might be abundant on Wakanda, the fictional homeland to Black Panther, but the country’s greatest natural resource is its valiant and dauntless women. And wowza! Director Ryan Coogler hits the jackpot. He draws up a supporting cast of fierce females and turns them loose. Yes, it’s the women of Wakanda – Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright – who kick butt and take names while the boys are left to avenge the [...]
