Theater Review: “Dear Evan Hansen”

Stephen Christopher Anthony as 'Evan Hansen'

I had great hopes for six-time Tony-winner “Dear Evan Hansen” when I heard it would finally tour San Diego, but I’m sorry to report that my hopes were mostly dashed last night at San Diego Civic Theatre. But don’t blame the cast.

Movie Review: "Cats"

Movie Review: "Cats."

Since it first opened in London’s West End in 1981, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats has confounded and enthralled audiences and critics alike.

Theater Review: “Hold These Truths”

 American democracy is one of the greatest political systems the world has ever devised, granting freedoms (and responsibilities) to its citizens that are paralleled in few other areas of the world.
