Ariana-Grande-The-Honeymoon-Tour-2015-tickets

After selling out her first show at DC’s Verizon Center, Ariana Grande’s – The Honey Moon Tour adds a second one to the mix. The new show will be Saturday, July 25th. Tickets went on sale Saturday, April 4th. As of now there are still plenty of seats left and surprisingly enough good seats are available at a “reasonable” price – under $120 for section 101 tickets. I’m almost tempted to purchase. I love me some Ariana.

For 85 glorious years, the Oscars have honored the best in cinematic achievement.  Then there’s its anti-thesis.  The yin to its yang.  The shiny statue that boasts of a golden glistening fruit. And no, it’s not Adam’s apple.  It’s the famous Golden Raspberry Awards aka Razzies that awards the uncoveted worst in film.  Founded in 1980, this ceremony typically precedes the corresponding Academy Awards ceremony by one day. For the first 34 years, the Razzies was closed to the press.  Everybody had heard about it but there was no red carpet or glitz and glamour accompanying it.  This year was different.

Theatre Review (Baltimore): ‘Annie’ – The Musical Soars

Annie the Musical

OK, as I look outside on this dreary, dreary day, all I can think is “The sun will come out tomorrow…” Baltimore’s France-Merrick 2015 Broadway Season starts off with one of my all time favorite musicals, Annie. After listening to the abominable soundtrack for Sony’s recent modern take on Annie, it’s nice to see a return to innocence and the music we all know and love. No one asked for a hip-hop dance mix of “Tomorrow”!
