  • 'Jersey Boys' forgot it's a musical

    A few years ago, I had the joy of seeing the hit Broadway musical “Jersey Boys” live on stage. Because the musical was so good and had so much acclaim, I expected magic from Clint Eastwood’s film version.

    That’s not exactly what happened.

    It has a few problems.

    “Jersey Boys” chronicles the formation and eventual breakup of the Four Seasons but, most importantly, it tells the story of their music.

  • A cellphone by any other number still rings as loudly

    For my birthday, I got a gift that keeps giving.

    Giving me problems, that is.

    Now, before I go any further, I have to be clear about a couple of things. First, the gift was a great item I had asked for and was not the source of the problems. Also, the experience to which I’m referring was not typical of the experiences I’ve had in the past when dealing with this company.

    That said, let me tell you about Cell-mageddon.

  • The sun still shines bright on 'The Stephen Foster Story'

    “The Stephen Foster Story,” a regional tradition, kicked off this month in Bardstown for its 56th season.

    “The show was much longer when it first opened, at least 2.5 hours in length,” said Billy Bass, the media and development coordinator.

    Through the years, scenes have been rearranged, music changed and some lines cut, he said.

    “The show changes every summer with new cast members and personalities, so every year the show has it’s own distinct story,” he said.

    “How to Train Your Dragon 2”
    Rated PG for adventure action and some mild rude humor.
