Naif on the Town: Candide, Reviewed

washingtoncitypaper.com — Candide hurls its characters from a storybook castle into a garden hedged 'round by a new-earned knowledge of good and evil, and in the process it cracks open their heads and their hearts. Ours, too. At least in Mary Zimmerman's thoughtful, emotional production-are there two words that chime together better when the subject is theater?-this is [...]

Dolly Parton: Songs We Love

npr.org — Even if you don't care too much for country music, you've got to love Dolly Parton. That hair? That makeup? That roller coaster, with what the Dollywood Web site delicately refers to as "butterfly back-to-back loops"? What's not to like? Here, Parton-friendly NPR staffers offer their thoughts on some of its highlights.

And What Could It All Mean? : NPR

npr.org — Strange and stylish and surpassingly dark, Denis Villeneuve's Enemy - especiallypaired with the same director's recent cop thriller Prisoners - makes a strong case for star Jake Gyllenhaal as maybe our most enigmatic young leading man.

Thrills, Chills And High Subatomic Drama : NPR

npr.org — All you really need to know about Particle Fever is that it includes footage of physicists rapping. About physics. Wearing giant Einstein masks. It's that blend of earnestness and abandon that informs Mark Levinson's utterly absorbing documentary, a chronicle of the launch of the Large Hadron Collider and the search for the fabled Higgs boson, a subatomic particle long theorized but never located.

'Kids For Cash,' Or Perhaps Not

npr.org — (Recommended) There's a moment, toward the end of the documentary that centers on him, when Judge Mark A. Chiavarella breaks down, his voice cracking as he mourns the likelihood that his grandchildren won't have him in their lives. It's a human moment - and a hugely, grimly ironic one.

'Five Dances' : Monkey See : NPR

npr.org — Five Dances might be the least talky movie I've seen in months - but it's plenty expressive. What it says, it says silently, or at least nonverbally, in the music-and-movement language of Jonah Bokaer's haunting choreography, which speaks of solitary strivings and the brief, passionate connections that punctuate them.

When A 'Total Eclipse' Leads To Some Serious Exposure

npr.org — So this here "Total Eclipse of the Heart" video has blown the heck up, tallying a million-plus YouTube plays since Scandal showrunner Shonda Rhimes tweeted a link to it. It's made the rounds of LaughingSquid and Gawker and the like, and if you haven't watched it, do yourself a favor and get that done, because you'll thank me.

Coffee Break: The Get Your 'Mary Poppins' Groove On Edition

npr.org — Having seen Cate Blanchett's electric Blanche DuBois, and had a public pretend-squabble with our own Bob Mondello about it, I felt like I was all up in Charles McNulty's head when I read his take on Blue Jasmine. [ The Los Angeles Times] * Long names. Languid looks.

Coffee Break: People Arguing And Counting And Singing And Getting Gassed Edition

npr.org — If you're anywhere near Winston-Salem, please note that Tonya Pinkins, whose chops are so considerable that I don't entirely know where to start with her amazingness, so just Google her, is in cabaret thereabouts, as part of the biennial National Black Theatre Festival. This is a thing that makes me want to go to North Carolina.

Coffee Break: Of Weddings And Looming Parental Mortality And German

npr.org — No, it's not Morning Shots today. Some of us just really aren't morning people. (What, breakfast is the only time you caffeinate?) Without further ado: * Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita got married, and a lot of stars were there, which is nice and all, but waitwhatdidyousaytonykushnerofficiated?

If you've ever wondered how big the US is, consider that the Downton Abbey estate is 5,000 acres. Biltmore Estate was more than 15,000.

Good God. Annette Bening in that blue wrap.
