The piano-playing satirist, who got his start in a piano bar on Capitol Hill, helps audiences find the humor in American political drama.
The Campo Verde High School Orchestra is collecting clothes and textiles as a fundraiser for new musical instruments and field trip expenses.
To this generation, Elaine Stritch is probably best known for playing Alec Baldwin’s overbearing mother on “30 Rock.” Before she was Colleen Donaghy, however, Stritch already had quite the résumé. In a showbiz career that’s now spanned roughly seven decades, she’s done it all, from movies, to television, to radio, to cabaret. Stritch cemented herself as a performing legend on the Broadway stage, starring in countless plays and finally winning a Tony for her one-woman show back in 2002.
A few weeks ago we got “The Lego Movie,” an animated feature that looked like a disaster waiting to happen. Since its release, however, the film has become a box office hit and received praise from virtually every human being on the planet, myself included. “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” is another family movie that seemed destined to flop at first glance. A modern day 3D extravaganza based on a 1960’s cartoon that was never even so great to begin with? I smell another “Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.”
One of the many surprises in Wes Anderson's rich, layered and quirkily entertaining new film, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," is the emergence of a new comic actor, one with impeccable timing and just the right mix of gravitas and utter zaniness.
Instead of stepping into someone’s shoes for the day, slide on the face of an ancient Aztec, traditional Japanese samurai or a mischievous-looking demon.
The Brass Tap wants to offer beer and wine drinkers a casual, but entertaining atmosphere where everyone can feel comfortable trying different brews from across the country.
When “300” came out almost seven years ago, you probably either thought it was the coolest movie of all time or the lamest movie of all time. While it was dumb and silly, the film’s glorified violence, striking look, and classic one-liners did admittedly have an effect on the macho dinosaur in me. The sad truth is that the style over substance appeal of “300” is only good for one movie. The first time you see such eye candy popping out at the screen, it’s friggin’ awesome. The second time around, it’s about as repetitive as watching Optimus Prime transform over and over again. That’s just one of the reasons why “300: Rise of the Empire” is dead on arrival.

Actor and Mesa native Charlie LeSueur recently left his footprints in cement at the Superstition Mountain Museum for his work preserving a part of television history. Now, LeSueur is working to make a new footprint by developing the theatrical talents of students at Sequoia Star Academy in his role as its performing arts director.
You have to admit, Arizona’s home to some odd animals: the Gila monster and chuckwalla, the coatimundi and the javelina — and at one time, to a greater extent than it is now — the ostrich.
LOS ANGELES — With Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" and Ridley Scott's "Exodus" preparing to duke it out for Old Testament auteur supremacy, Hollywood's religious renaissance gets off to a none-too-spectacular start with a chewed-over New Testament appetizer called "Son of God." A clumsily edited feature-length version of five episodes from History's hugely popular 10-hour miniseries "The Bible," this stiff, earnest production plays like a half-hearted throwback to the British-accented biblical dramas of yesteryear, its small-screen genesis all too apparent in its Swiss-cheese construction and subpar production values. Yet while Jesus' teachings have been reduced to a muddle of kindly gestures and mangled Scriptures, the scenes of his betrayal, death and resurrection crucially retain their emotional and dramatic power, which the charitable viewer may deem atonement enough for what feels, in all other respects, like a cynical cash grab.
With the new year now in full swing, the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce continues to work to identify the programs and services that can best serve our business community. Like most businesses, we move steadily forward in pursuit of our goals.
Ben Affleck backstage at the 85th annual Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles, California, Sunday, February 24, 2013.
The fanciest event of the year for the denizens of Hollywood is nigh, and what better way to celebrate the bright lights, glamour, fame and misfortune of the Oscars than to throw a world-class shindig?
NEW YORK — Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds has been enjoying rock stardom from a relevantly sane place.
This Sunday the 86th Annual Academy Awards Ceremony will grace our TV’s. During the Ceremony, Arizona can be expected to be raked over the coals once again. Of course it is no longer the G-rated Program it once was. Now they have to use “L” for Language and “N” for Nudity alerts and probably “M” for Mature would be more fitting. We will of course be subjected to some male/female body part(s) being bared due to an “accidental” clothing malfunction. We will of course be subjected to f-bombs, c-bombs, s-bombs and other assorted profanity from the host/hostess, the presenters, and the awardees. Crocodile tears, mock surprise and humility will rule the day. The “best” movie will be awarded to one of the usual liberal Hollywood. Heaven forbid that any movie positively portraying a normal American family or having a pro-American theme would ever win an Oscar these days.
NEW YORK — Six years ago, Matthew McConaughey was starring in a movie called "Surfer, Dude," a film about as good as its title implies. He played a shirtless surfer plunged into an existential crises when his good luck with waves runs out.
Long after Wells Fargo Arena emptied, a dozen teenagers wearing blue uniforms and reddened faces slowly meandered across the floor a final time this season. One held a video camera while the others talked, looked around at the backdrop in which their season came to an end, and embraced.
