Dig Deeper

Now what kind of mother would take her kids to see a movie about juvenile delinquents serving time in a hard-labor prison camp? A smart one, if she's read Holes, Louis Sachar's wacky, wickedly funny children's book that makes the leap to the big screen this Friday.

Arts Reviews

Something Someone Someplace Else

Like so many characters in American drama, the folks in Ann Marie Healey's Something Someone Someplace Else are trying to measure the distance between the life they have and the life they want, and Hyde Park Theatre's world premiere production is so rich in humor and warmth that we feel no distance between them and us.

Miami String Quartet

With an exceptionally thoughtful program and a performance brimming with joy and gusto, the Miami String Quartet proved itself a thoroughly engaging conversationalist worth listening to.

Touch

Ballet Austin's Touch, choreographed by Artistic Director Stephen Mills, was one of these rare productions that have both stunning choreography and dancing, but also seem to open a level of emotional connection with the audience that's more direct than even language-based works of art.
