    RedditGifts: Have You Ever Been Curious?

    How many times have you read a news story about how a Reddit user “won the internet” with a gift of extraordinary value from a celebrity? If you haven’t been living under a rock, the answer is probably more than a few.

    AN AMERICAN IN PARIS at Segerstrom Center for the Arts: So Beautiful I Cried.

    I’ve never been a huge fan of the film An American in Paris, but when I read Entertainment Weekly‘s article about its history and its impact on La La Land, I was intrigued.

When the curtain fell and I was in tears at how beautiful […]

    A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 at South Coast Repertory: Well-executed, but do we need it?

    One of the questions I ask a lot after seeing a sequel or remake or reboot of anything iconic is: Did we need that? I asked it after seeing the new Ghostbusters movie last year, which was good, but not something I think we needed. I ask it every time anybody tries to do anything with Dirty Dancing. (ABC, I am talking to YOU right now: NOBODY WANTS YOUR TV REMAKE.) And it’s the question I found myself asking after […]
