Budapest With An S.H. (Review: Black Widow)

Budapest With An S.H. (Review: Black Widow)

Black Widow is streaming on Disney+ Prequels are terrible. That is, until they aren’t. It used to be that the idea of checking out the earlier adventures of beloved characters was nothing more than a craven cash grab. You had the tomfoolery of Butch and Sundance: The Early Years, the nonsense of Hannibal Rising, and the blatant idiocy of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Done well, a prequel can add texture and character to a franchise. It can fill in the blanks and even recontextualize the original work. Despite the clunky execution, mostly poor acting, and thunderingly obvious storytelling, George... Read More

Rock Island's Circa ’21 Seeks Actor Submissions for New “Disenchanted” Musical

Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse, in Rock Island, is accepting acting submissions now for the hilarious off-Broadway hit musical comedy, “Disenchanted.” Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hit musical that is “anything but Grimm,” according to a Circa release. Forget the princesses you think you know – the original storybook heroines have come back to life to set the record straight. At the artistic helm of this new musical are St. Ambrose theatre professor, professional actor and director Corinne Johnson, and longtime... Read More

Life On Earth

Life On Earth

If you’re reading this, you’re alive and you survived 2020. Trust me when I tell you, that’s good! We had an insanely acrimonious presidential election, a pandemic that almost completely caught the world unawares, and an economy that’s currently curled in the fetal position. Selfishness and willful ignorance swept the land. There was serious talk of secession. The whole thing sucked. And then? Then, we passed across that hazy and insubstantial border to 2021. A new year. An opportunity to, if you’re a cynic, make laughable public promises to change your life and fail to do so. Years of... Read More

A Gorilla Never Forgets

A Gorilla Never Forgets

The One and Only Ivan is streaming on Disney+. Once upon a time, there was a mall, located in a faraway land known as Tacoma. This mall wasn’t the sort of mall you might have hung out at as an incorrigible youth. It didn’t have a food court. It didn’t have an Apple store. It didn’t have a mall security guard. It was not a gleaming bastion to capitalism. Instead, this mall was…different. Instead of chains, it was a haven of small businesses. Some of them were the kind of places that sold incredible art or wonderful used books. Other were the kind of places that would sell throwing... Read More

Quad-Cities' Disney World Equity Performers Are Missing Stage, Despite Reopening

Saturday in the Arts is a comprehensive, in-depth feature on a topic, trend or personality impacting the Quad-Cities, posted every Saturday morning on QuadCities.com. Nathan and Whitney Meyer are a bit like the plucky, cute orphans who are often protagonists of a Disney adventure. Nathan, a 34-year-old graduate of North Scott High School, Eldridge, and his wife (like most of us, isolated and home-bound) actually work for Walt Disney World and are accomplished, blazingly talented singers and actors. Despite the four theme parks in Orlando, Fla., reopening this past week, the Meyers remain out of... Read More

“Hamilton” Thrills Fans Again on Small Screen, Just in Time for July 4

The hotly-anticipated film version of the groundbreaking musical “Hamilton” literally could not have come at a better time. Directed by its original Broadway helmer Thomas Kail, over three days in June 2016 (with and without audiences), the 160-minute film dropped in the early morning Friday on Disney Plus, just in time for the Independence Day weekend. After four months of deeply isolating quarantine, a horrifying pandemic that’s killed 130,000 Americans, over a month of protests regarding racial injustice, millions unemployed and confused, and a divisive, often hurtful president, this brilliant,... Read More
