EntertainmentPee-wee is back and better than ever!

By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

NEW YORK (Nov. 19, 2010) -- On Broadway at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, a time capsule is waiting to be discovered. "The Pee-wee Herman Show," the gloriously odd stage play by Paul Reubens, is as demented, weird, crazed, funny and downright side-splitting as they come. For lovers of the Pee-wee character, the show is a must-see, over and over and over again.

Top StoriesThe Guru of the Gratuity tells all

By Andrew Segedin / Reporter

RUTHERFORD (Nov. 18, 2010) — Standing on line at the Starbucks inside of the Clifton Commons Barnes & Noble, author Steve Dublanica turns around and offers the evening’s first anecdote.

“Notice, no tip jar,” Dublanica says. “Do you know why there’s no tip jar? Because the people behind the counter are Barnes & Noble employees — they make what the people on the floor make, and the Barnes & Noble employees working the floor complained that why should the Starbucks workers get tips when they don’t? So they don’t.”

LyndhurstThe Rat Pack live!

Submitted photo

LYNDHURST (Nov. 18, 2010) — The Lyndhurst Elks Lodge #1505 recently had the pleasure of hosting an evening with “The Rat Pack” at their lodge. The show was absolutely fabulous, very entertaining, a laugh a minute between the singing, the dancing and the comedic ensemble of Frank, Dean and Sammy. The night was one that would love to be repeated. The evening could not have been possible without being organized by member Bill Murtha and his committee and everyone who was involved and attended. A good time was had by all.

Pictured with Sammy, Frank and Dean are Exalted Ruler Ginger Bartlett and Murtha.

EntertainmentGrim surrealism at center of serendipitous psychic drama

FILM REVIEW OF 'HEREAFTER'

By Kam Williams / Critic

(Nov. 12, 2010) — I thought that the American obsession with psychics had pretty much ended once Miss Cleo was exposed as a fraud from Los Angeles as opposed to the shaman from Jamaica she posed as on the Psychic Friends Network infomercial. Even though nobody with an IQ above room temperature consults clairvoyants with crystal balls anymore, Clint Eastwood has inexplicably made a movie giving credence to such charlatans.

EntertainmentKam Williams reviews Soledad O'Brien's new book

By Kam Williams / Critic

(Nov. 11, 2010) — Soledad O‘Brien is the daughter of immigrants, one from Australia, the other from Cuba, who met in this country while pursuing the proverbial American Dream. However because one was white, and the other was black, they had to flee the South after falling in love, since interracial marriage was still against the law down there.

Entertainment'Driving Miss Daisy' revs up again

By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

NEW YORK (Nov. 10, 2010) — The new revival of "Driving Miss Daisy" at the Golden Theatre in New York City puts new life into this 80-minute play — but only to a certain degree. Starring the inimitable Vanessa Redgrave and iconic James Earl Jones, the production does perhaps the best job it can with source material that is emotionally stirring, but not terribly groundbreaking.

EntertainmentBrilliant debut deconstructs a failed romance

FILM REVIEW OF 'GUY AND MADELINE ON A PARK BENCH'

By Kam Williams / Critic

(Nov. 8, 2010) — Melancholy Madeline (Desiree Garcia) sits alone freezing on a park bench in Boston contemplating what just happened after being dumped by her boyfriend on a chilly, wintry day. Meanwhile, her equally-wistful ex (Jason Palmer) trudges home through the snow with his trumpet slung lazily over his shoulder. Upon arriving at his apartment, in utter resignation Guy removes a picture from the wall taken of the two of them during much happier times.

EntertainmentOriginal inspiration for 'Buena Vista Social Club' coming to NYC

By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

NEW YORK (Nov. 8, 2010) — A motley group of Malian and Cuban musicians will converge at New York City's Town Hall on Tuesday, Nov. 9 for a concert both important in its cultural scope and historic in its long journey from concept to reality.

In the process of compiling the world-renowned musicians for the successful "Buena Vista Social Club" recordings several years ago (recordings of traditional Cuban-influenced music that would go on to a globally recognized tour, CD and documentary film), the instrumentalists from Mali, who were originally supposed to be featured, were unfortunately left out.

Yes, Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O and the rest of their merry band of intrepid stuntmen have returned for another round of jaw-dropping, death-defying feats.

EntertainmentMike Daisey's latest monologue is hauntingly captivating

By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

NEW YORK (Oct. 28, 2010) — "Barring the Unforeseen," the latest monologue from downtown denizen Mike Daisey, is a haunting portrait of the inherent power of ghost stories. Why do we choose to remember? Why are we pulled back? Can true reconciliation with the past ever be achieved?

Daisey, in his inimitable style, is on a journey to address some of these questions. With any good monologue, there is always an open parentheses at the end of the piece. Definitive answers are as unnecessary as elaborate theatrics. The words are supposed to simply linger, digestible or not.

Entertainment'La Bête' is the best new production on Broadway

By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

NEW YORK (Oct. 27, 2010) — "La Bête," currently playing The Music Box Theatre in New York City, is simply a hoot and a half. David Hirson's intermissionless play hasn't won over everyone. Its initial Broadway run was, by all accounts, a dismal financial failure. Some critics have lampooned the piece as a dressed up tale of burps, banter and misguided verse.

But David Hyde Pierce, Joanna Lumley and the exquisite Mark Rylance are injecting some adrenaline and support into the one-hour-45-minute play, and the results are comic genius. Although this may be love-it-or-hate-it fare, count me in the love-it category. "La Bête" is the funniest new production on Broadway.

By Jennifer Vazquez / Reporter
