  • Couple finds a lost spark in ‘Brightwell’ Oct 20, 2014 6:00 AM
    At the heart of this light, energetic tale of a group of wealthy eccentrics on holiday at a seaside resort in England emerges a story of a marriage. Yes, there’s a juicy scandal, snobbish comments and petty disagreements among people of a certain class. But “Murder at the Brightwell” by Ashley Weaver also proves to be an insightful look at a marriage that started with a strong, physical attraction and now has frayed because neither Amory Ames nor her husband, Milo, has figured out how to communicate.

     
  • ‘Evil Within’ is a nightmarish head trip Oct 20, 2014 10:25 AM
    In the video-game world, Shinji Mikami’s name has the same cachet that George Romero and Wes Craven have among moviegoers. Mikami created “Resident Evil,” the 1996 classic usually credited as the first “survival horror” game. Mikami fans have been waiting a long time for a follow-up — and “The Evil Within” will scratch their survival horror itch.

  • Garry Marshall, the knight of light, goes dark Oct 20, 2014 6:00 AM
    Garry Marshall may turn 80 next month, but it certainly wasn’t apparent as the legendary director led a recent play rehearsal downtown. “Come back! Let’s do it again,” he good-naturedly chided the actors from the dark, empty seats of New York's Vineyard Theatre, where “Billy & Ray” opens later this month. Finally, when the run-through was fitfully over, the cast and crew looked hopefully to the man who directed “Pretty Woman” and created “Laverne & Shirley” and “Happy Days.” Marshall’s assessment wasn’t super: “It’s perfect for an outdoor stadium.”

  • Leap of faith led Elgin native to 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' Oct 21, 2014 11:32 AM
    Elgin native Bianca Alarcon might not have landed a job on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” if she hadn't taken what she describes as “a leap of faith.” The Larkin High School alumna had a good job on “Windy City Live” but decided to leave for Los Angeles. Now she works on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” as an executive assistant to the executive producer. “Sometimes you just have to take that leap of faith and go after what you want,” she said.

  • Narrative missteps mar beautifully sung 'Amazing Grace' Oct 21, 2014 10:22 AM
    The enthusiastic response from Bank of America Theatre's world premiere of “Amazing Grace” suggests this luxurious, gorgeously sung musical about redemption, reconciliation and moral reawakening has made more than a few converts during its brief stay here. Whether that propels this historical bio-musical about John Newton, an 18th century English slave merchant turned abolitionist whose conversion led him to compose the titular hymn to Broadway's promised land remains to be seen.

    The bloody World War II drama “Fury” blew past “Gone Girl” at theaters this weekend. “Gone Girl” was tops at the box office for two weeks before Brad Pitt and his rag-tag group of tank mates in “Fury” blasted the film to second place.

  • Aretha Franklin takes on divas, comes out swinging Oct 20, 2014 10:26 AM
    Aretha Franklin sings the sound of America like nobody else alive — a point of unceasing pride for Detroit, the place she was raised and remains near today. So the release of “Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics” raises one question right off: Does the singular Queen of Soul really need to borrow from other divas?
