One of the paradoxes of holiday films is that they often have little to do with peace and good will toward men, or any other gender. But this year we have at least two family-friendly animated features, plus a modernized remake of a time-tested Broadway musical to lesson the seriousness of a season that has become an annual campaign for studios to lobby for awards and critics’ top 10 lists.
Sunday picks: Gershwin's 'Porgy and Bess' now at Lyric
Gershwin's great American opera "Porgy and Bess" returns to the repertory of the Lyric Opera of Chicago for a run of performances. The Elgin Theatre Company presents the classic holiday production “It's a Wonderful Life” as a live radio play at the Kimball Street Theater. Oakton Community College features the rock 'n' roll musical comedy “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” on the stage of its Studio One Theater in Des Plaines.
With ‘The Flash’ and ‘Jane the Virgin,’ TV rediscovers niceness
For a long time, most prominent television shows have drawn their dramatic juice from the idea that all characters have big, bad secrets. But, delightfully, two of fall’s best new dramas. “The Flash” and “Jane the Virgin,” are running creative laps around their grimmer competitors by demonstrating that the conflicts produced by good intentions are just as gripping as the misdeeds of people who conceal their worst selves rather than conquering them.
Over ‘Am I Wrong’? Nico & Vinz know how you feel
If you’re tired of hearing Nico & Vinz’s worldwide hit “Am I Wrong,” the Norwegian duo knows just how you feel. The 23-year-old musicians from the Oslo suburbs released the optimistic, ambition-focused song in April 2013. Now they’re ready to skip ahead to the next track. Nicolas “Nico” Sereba and Vincent “Vinz” Dery hope radio listeners turn up the volume on their follow-up single, “In Your Arms.”
Matt Czuchry previews his biggest ’Good Wife’ episode in ‘emotionally taxing’ season
The approximately 11 million people who tune in every week to watch “The Good Wife,” the gripping CBS drama that’s also possibly the best show on television, know that Cary Agos has had quite a yeall. After all, it’s been a long road for the character. He started as the nemesis of Alicia Florrick, played by Julianna Margulies, but worked his way up to friend and business partner, as the two pulled off a thrilling coup last season and started their own law firm. Actor Matt Czuchry talks about the challenge of anchoring such a tough storyline this season.

full story »Hooked on … B.J. ThomasHaving grown up absolutely loving music, I have so many memories of just simply hanging out in my room staring at album covers and listening to the pop/rock stars of the Seventies. One of those distinctive voices for me was that of B.J. Thomas, and his recent performance at my Arcada Theatre gave me another bucket-list experience.
