A Midsummer Night’s Newsletter – July 31 – Aug 6 “Acting Edition!”


So my sprog, who just turned 13, is part of Performance Work’s Teen Shakespeare production of Midsummer Night’s Dream! And it’s pretty excellent. (I’m not just saying that cause I’m the Dad). All 18 of these teenagers do a marvelous and very impressive job. The costume’s are great and the setting can’t be beat. And it’s free! (you can also shell out $6 for reserved seating – which I would recommend) If you’re looking to spend a nice evening (when you’re not watching movies of course) out of your sweltering house, I’d recommend this for sure! https://www.facebook.com/events/1973055933006772/

New Releases!


Black Wake – Something in the water is making people turn into the zombies! You know it’s low budget straight to video when it has both Eric Roberts and Tom Sizemore in it!


DC Comics: Death of Superman – Superman can’t die, he’s Superman! Like, what the what?


Here and Now – Cool looking HBO show stars Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter as parents of adopted kids from around the world that, for some reason, start to see things that no one else can see. Spooky? I hope so. From Alan Ball (Six Feet Under, True Blood).


Keeping Hours– The always amazing Carrie Coon stars in this little ghost story about a couple who kids dies but then supernatural things start a happenin’.


Life of the Party – I like Melissa MacCarthy. She’s very funny. But she tends to do a lot of middle of the road comedies that, for some reason, are all directed by her husband. Maybe it’s time to step out and work with someone funny? This one finds her returning to college to get her degree. I hope it’s as funny as that Simpsons episode. “Lousy Dean!”


Marrowbone – Four siblings, who share a scary secret involving their dead mom, are plagued by terrifying things in the mansion where they, for some reason, all live together. I love a good ghost story and this one gets pretty good reviews. Fingers crossed!


No Offence – Manchester police drama from across the pond (England)! Folks love these things! I know that I do.


Revenge – A resourceful woman takes bloody revenge on some scum-bag business men who assaulted her and left her for dead in the desert. Not for everyone, of course, but I’ve heard that it’s a very good revenge thriller.


The Rider – Award-winning, much ballyhooed drama about a cowboy who suffers a head injury and must reinvent himself in the heartland of America. I’m sure that it’s much better than I just made it sound. Apologies to all of those involved.


Who’s Watching Oliver? – For fans who like their horror down and dirty and nasty (hello!) comes this debauched tale of a mental patient loner who goes on a “truly shocking and humiliating killing spree” – IMDB. You have been warned.

Coming Soon!

That’s it for this week folks. Stay hydrated! Go to the beach! Check out the play! Watch movies!
