“La La Land” is steamrolling into the Oscars, and tied “All About Eve” (1950) and “Titanic” (1997) for most nominations in Oscar history with 14, including Best Picture, Actor, Actress and Director. Other multiple nominations went to the searing drama “Moonlight” (eight) and the stage adaptation “Fences” (four). Also notable is that six African American actors will compete for Oscars, one year after the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.

TV, DVD, BLU-RAY & THEATER REVIEWS

  • Kid Thing, The

    CHICAGO – Like the awesome Engine Who Could, the mighty Nothing Without a Company stage crafters have constructed another triumph at their new home in Berger Mansion on Chicago’s north side. “The Kid Thing” – written by Sarah Gubbins – is a terse, convincing and emotional play about fear, identity and breeding, and it is performed by its cast of five with utter authenticity. The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Berger North Mansion through April 15th, 2017. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • Wiz, The

    CHICAGO – When stage theater can cause outbreaks of elation, celebration and joy, then it must be due to Kokandy Productions’ revival of “The Wiz.” The urban reinterpretation of “The Wizard of Oz” story – told through tuneful euphoria and jubilant dance – is ecstatically produced, in every morsel of its stagecraft.
