On the Stage: Jersey Boys

Let’s just get the obvious question out of the way: Yes, this is my favorite Broadway show ever. Jersey Boys is one of the most popular shows to hit the stage because it’s certainly more adult than other shows as well as being historical in some aspects. 

On the Stage: Dr. Suess’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas

I was raised to think of Christmas as the most happy time of year, and Christmas Eve is the most exciting night you’ll ever experience. While my opinions may differ from that in reality, there’s nothing more comforting than curling up on the couch with some hot chocolate (and liqueur) to watch those old Christmas movies that are so near and dear to my heart.

On the Stage: The Illusionists

I love magic tricks; I don’t care what anyone says. I sit in total awe watching card tricks, cup-and-ball tricks, and anything else a skilled, or even amateur, magician can throw my way. So when The Illusionists came to town, you can bet that I was first in line. 

On the Stage: The Sound of Music

When I was in junior high, I was forced to do a rather ridiculous dance to the “Lonely Goatherd” song from The Sound of Music, so I kind of hated the movie. But I’ll go see anything on stage; they’re the ones that have to dance to the song this time, not me. 

Kevin Smith and Yoga Hosers

The cult filmmaker turned Hollywood heavyweight, Kevin Smith, has been delighting and beguiling his following since the early 90s with the release of Clerks. While his unique films have gathered a strong following, he has branched out into larger blockbusters as well. But he continues to create oddball films for his own sake, and he’s even coming to town to show off his latest. Yoga Hosers screens at The Joy Theater on Wednesday, June 1st, complete with a QnA with Kevin Smith after the film. I got to ask him some questions in advance of the event about this film and his unexpected self-identification.
