America's most popular satirical newspaper makes the leap from the printed page to the silver screen in this political comedy, The Onion that explores what happens when journalistic integrity is compromised by corporate sensibility. Onion News anchorman Norm Archer (Len Cariou) is s principled journalist, so when he's asked to bend to the will of his corporate overlords he decides to strike back with a fury unheard of in the world of network news. Nothing is sacred as the creative force behind The Onion unleash an unrelenting barrage of satire on such subjects as pop stars, prisoners, peace talks, and blockbuster action films. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

VIA QUESTION: In the movie "The Onion" the character "Melissa Cherry" is a spoof on what pop singer? Answer here.

When actor-dancer Gregory Hines passed away in 2003, the world lost one of its most influential ambassadors for the art of tap.

The show celebrates such tap-dancing greats as The Nicholas Brothers, Fred Astaire, Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, Ruby Keeler, Ann Miller and Dr. Jimmy Slyde. Eight world-class hoofers, three jazz musicians and multimedia projections and narratives about the history of tap come together to amke "Thank You, Gregory!" an entertaining and poignant salute to this great form of dance.

"Eight very alive tap dancers interacted with the photos and film, making the evening something more than an honorable effort showcasing an often-overlooked American dance form." - Philadelphia City Paper

Harper Lee's 1960 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel comes to life, as The Montana Repertory Theatre presents "To Kill A Mockingbird." This classic American story, set in the 1930s, tells the tale of a sleepy Southern town that is rocked with scandal when a young black man is accused of raping a white woman. Atticus Finch, an attorney and widow of two young children, stands against his fellow townspeople by defending the accused man. The full-length play focuses on Atticus' heroic battle, as well as the growth and development of the Finch children as they watch prejudice and racism erupt in their community. The play offers high drama, wit and hope as the characters explore themes that are still relevant today.

"From the opening to the closing standing ovation, 'To Kill a Mockingbird' was powerful and gripping ..."
-The Chieftain, Pueblo, Colorado
