Music: Marshall Crenshaw joins the Smithereens... The Smithereens had a handful of hits in the late 1980s, as their gritty power pop found an audience that appreciated their classic garage rock sound with its punky intensity.

Setting the scene for 'Miss Bennet: Christmas... For scenic designer James J. Fenton, one of the challenges in creating the look for the current Merrimack Repertory Theatre production of “Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley” – a modern sequel to Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” – was living up to the expectations of the legions of Austen-philes.Written by Lauren Gunderson (“Silent Sky”) and Margot Melcon, the 2016 play picks up where the 1813 romantic novel leaves off, [...]

OFF THE VINE: Screw caps on wine bottles fuel... The debate over the use of screw caps on wine bottles continues to stir emotions among wine lovers.

Jewelry, accessories inspired by tension,... Jewelry and clothing are not always about style, taste and status.

Ballet review: Mateo's 'Nutcracker' is a whirl... Theatrical Christmas packages for Boston audiences come wrapped in various sizes, but sometimes smaller is satisfying because the gift is up close and personal. So it goes with the Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre production of “The Nutcracker,” in its 31st season at the Cutler Majestic Theatre, just down the street from “The Grinch” and around the corner from Boston Ballet’s production. The Mateo troupe moves to Dorchester's Strand Theatre on Dec. 14.  [...]

GET REEL: Watch with the animals It's time to visit animal house. No, not the film about the party-hardy fraternity. This house provides a home for films featuring live-action animals in significant roles. In other words, no animated animals are allowed in, though animals created with special effects will be accepted.The problem with writing about films with animated animals is that there's so many of them that Noah couldn't fit them all on a fleet of arks. Films with live-action animals are far less numerous, [...]

South Shore Sugar Plums: Local dancers get... Christmas without “The Nutcracker” is like Thanksgiving without turkey.

Eschewing an opening [...]

Be assured that the holidays are coming, courtesy of [...]
