The film Table 19, is about the ‘forgotten guests’ experiences at a wedding.

By on Feb 24, 2017 in Arts, Arts & Culture, Features, Theatre & Musicals

It’s an interesting time to bring Stephen Sondheim’s musical, Assassins, to the stage. A play about people who decided it’s their life’s purpose to kill a president. It took 14 years for the show to be received on Broadway, and went on to win 5 Tony Awards. Still, theatres have often shied away from producing the show with its provocative topic, scenes with gun pointing at the audience and “accidental” stage shootings (blanks, of course) that will leave some audience members rattled.

Magical Nathaniel Magic Show!

By on Jan 27, 2017 in Arts & Culture, Community, Features, Shows

I didn’t know what to expect when I went to see Magical Nathaniel Magic Show! at El Cerrito High School. In his early 20’s, he’s already been performing for about 9 years.
