A Marvel For All

I’ve attended exactly one Free Comic Book Day in my life. This was a few years back, during the heyday of Art Baltazar’s Tiny Titans comics which was the slow birth of my own daughters’ interest in anything fictionally superheroic. I cannot recall anything we took home gratis on that […]

The Illusionists Turn Of The Century on Broadway

The truth is, you just don’t know. These are modern audiences, digital natives growing up in a 4K ultra high definition world of clicks, swipes and immediate immediacy. Will children comfortably sink into the weathered red velvet of Broadway theater seats and allow themselves to be transported back to the […]

The New Ringling Brothers Show Out Of This World Blasts Off Into The Serene Quiet of Outer Space

When audiences first sit down in their seats this month to watch Out Of This World, the newest circus from Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey, they will be greeted with about 12 minutes of serene quiet and the relative darkness of outer space. It’s a daring decision for a […]

Philly Local: The Arden Theatre 2014/15 Children’s Season Announced

A New Pinocchio Is Built At The Arden Theatre

I could very well launch into my coverage of The Arden’s Pinocchio the same way I kicked off my review of the Olde City theater’s production of Cinderella last year: excitement levels were not sky high. The obvious second sentence would then be: I am again an idiot for ever […]

OWTK PHILLY LOCAL: A Reimagined Cinderella At The Arden Theatre

We could have just as easily skipped this one. Disappointment in their last (Robin Hood) mixed with ambivalence (at best) about their current (Cinderella) had me ‘meh’ about the prospects for the ’12-’13 children’s season at The Arden.  I get that they can’t all be Flea & The Professor and […]
