From Reservoir Dogs to Pulp Fiction through Jackie Brown to Death Car, I have always been a big Quentin Tarantino fan.Quentin’s love for everything cinematic literally bursts through his films making them more than a mere movie outing. The Hateful 8 delivers the same punchy dialogue and cartoonish violence we have come to expect from a Tarantino film. It’s a definite must-see.
The Patrick Terry produced spectacular WONDERSHOW – described as is “Professional mindf*ckery by some of the most skilled performers in the business” – returned to NYC from August 21st – 23rd at The Muse, Bushwick’s newly renovated circus arts warehouse. It was a total blast and Jon Stetson totally blew my mind!
Long time readers of TGATP know that I love dance, in general, and Jennifer Muller/The Works, in particular. But Amanda Selwyn Dance joins my list of favorites after a performance of uplifting beauty that left the audience breathless.
It’s been a delightful holiday season with tons of great performances. I had a blast at The Collegiate Chorale performance of Eric Idle and John Du Prez’s (of Monty Python and Spamalot’s) performance of “Not The Messiah (He’s A Very Naughty Boy). I would love to see this become a holiday tradition.
