Re: “Tyler Perry's Madea on the Run

The Madea plays are way more entertaining on stage than on the screen. Loads of fun!

Re: “Sister Act: The Musical

This was fun, playful and more community theater than TPAC, but the HEART of this cast is evident and infectious and the audience was enthusiastic from beginning to end. I fell in love with all the main characters, especially LaToya Gardner (Deloris Van Cartier/Mary Clarence), Rae Robeson (Sister Mary Robert), and Mary Corby (Mother Superior.) The gentlemen trio who played TJ, Joey, and Pablo had the audience laughing and cheering consistently. The nuns were strong vocalists and the choreography was a good fit. Highly recommend attending. Five stars for value and entertainment received, four stars overall for uneven moments, ocassional missed notes for soloists, and some mic issues.

Re: “Emoni Wilkins

Went to see Ms. Wilkins on Saturday, Nov 14 and she rocked the house hard. She has a tight band backing her up as well. Definitely worth catching.

Re: “A Bright New Boise

SPAGHETTI THEATRE Presents a Tasty Plateful of Soul-searching!
Just a brief way down the road from Gabby’s Fabulous Palace of Cholesterol on Chestnut Street (Yeah, NOW you’ll know how to get there) SPAGHETTI THEATRE is serving up its own appetizing if slightly challenging fare. As usual, you get no meatball with your spaghetti. The troupe is dedicated to minimalist production values so as to keep ticket prices affordable and perhaps also to emphasize the material on stage rather than any theatrical trappings. Samuel D. Hunter’s intense one-act A BRIGHT NEW BOISE, an examination of the role of organized religion in our lives, certainly provides plenty to focus upon. Bradley Moore, himself a purveyor of socially conscious issues as artistic director of Music City Theatre Company, solidly inhabits Will Kronnin, a recent member of an eschatological Christian sect who journeys from northern Idaho to the relative metropolis of Boise to land a minimum wage job in a Hobby Lobby store. His confrontational relationship with high-school-age coworker Alex, portrayed in excruciatingly poignant detail by Aevar Johnson, becomes an emotional firestorm that engulfs and almost destroys themselves and their fellow employees. Miles Gatrell, Lauren Knoop, and Grace Kelly Mason create vividly unique characters out of those Hobby Lobby clerks, each in his or her own way grappling with the consequences of faith or the lack of it.

The modest-sized upstairs venue in the repurposed Channel to Channel complex serves this intimate contemporary tale very well. Even an occasional train horn from the nearby mainline did not overwhelm the dialogue and only added to verisimilitude. Director Bethany Langford has adroitly maneuvered her cast within the almost awkwardly limiting confines of probably the smallest performance area in town, barely delineated from the audience space, while eliciting intense but perfectly proportioned performances. Because seating is limited and on a first come first admitted basis, you should arrive before the 7PM box office opening to guarantee yourself a seat at the 7:30 curtain. The no-intermission show is slated at an hour and fifteen minutes, but ran a bit longer on opening night.

A BRIGHT NEW BOISE plays at 7:30 PM tonight and tomorrow as well as July 31-Aug 2 at the Channel to Channel Art Gallery, 427 Chestnut Street, Suite 302. Admission is $10.

Re: “Mika No Place In Heaven Album Release Listening Party

I thoroughly love him and his album- his lyrics are dark and melodically happy which made me a mika fan in the first place. Npih is pop genius , and i love 'hurts' and 'good guys' so much

Re: “Government Cheese Album Release feat. Lisa Oliver Gray

Twenty something years after the fact, the Cheese hit the nail squarely on the head with "The Late Show", easily the best record of their storied career and one of the best release of the year. An under-appreciated band at the top of their game- well worth the wait!

Re: “#SimplyStandards Jazz Brunch feat. The Combo

This kicks Saturday off to a great start. Get there early as the Stone Fox fills up pretty quick and stays busy throughout the band's sets.

Re: “Jam Session feat. Evan Cobb Quartet with Jim Ferguson

Excellent little clinic/performance space. Intimate setting with a friendly clientele and a pleasantly laid-back atmosphere. Jim Ferguson is great--some fine music happened this afternoon. Be sure to sign up to jam ahead of time, though; there's a plenty of folks eager to get in on the show.

Re: “Fantasia With the Nashville Symphony

It was an absolutely wonderful show, but the title was misleading. I thought they would perform all the pieces of the 1940 Fantasia, but they ended up playing a mixture of the old Fantasia and new Fantasia. I believe they did this to play it safe, as Night on Bald Mountain still generates controversy to this day, as silly as it may seem.
All in all it was fantastic and did justice to both Fantasias, and I loved seeing it being appreciated by many generations of audiences.

Re: “Grand Opening: Antique Archaeology Nashville

"S"and "fanamore" both made some nasty conclusions regarding the guys sexuality. I want them to explain why Frank has spoken about his dates with women several times on the show. Mike is married and has St least one child. I really enjoy the show. Danielle is a huge plus on the air. I will be in the store next time my wife and I visit. Nashville.

Re: “Intergalactic Bead and Jewelry Show

This show is really amazing and for customers huge variety of jewelry is available. But as for me, all jewelry is overpriced, here I can buy less expensive variant

Re: “The Piano Lesson

I had the opportunity to see this play on opening night. It was awesome, especially for the lowly price of 15 dollars. This local theatrical production serves due justice to August Wilson's Pulitzer prizer winning play. Solid performance and a great production!
