Bonn’s Production Of ‘Spring Awakening’ Breaks Boundaries

By: Brennan Carley

It’s a controversial show, that Spring Awakening, a rock musical teeming with teenage sex and the troubles that come with growing up. Though two of the protagonists in the musical are male, it was the women who walked away with the Contemporary Theatre of Boston College’s production, unapologetically yanking on our heartstrings with their wrenching performances.

Trio Miike Snow Entertains With A ‘Happy’ New Effort

By: Brennan Carley

Miike Snow is, in fact, not a man, but a band. “Oh yeah, I’ve heard of him, he does that song ‘Animal,'” friends have said in the past, but not many understand that the band is, in fact, a they, not a he. The band, composed of Christian Karlsson, Pontus Winberg, and Andrew Wyatt, are former producers who won a Grammy for their work on Britney Spears’ pre-breakdown “Toxic.”

Disney’s Visionaries Talk ‘John Carter’

Taylor Kitsch 

The Heights:What does it mean to you to portray a character that has existed for a century?

Taylor Kitsch:I don’t think you’re going to put more pressure on it because it’s existed this or that. I think that’s a lot of the outside pressure trying to come in, but no one is going to put more pressure on it than I will. I think the most pressure I truly had was probably playing a guy that’s lived and has passed on, but I’m not going to prep more because it’s Edgar Rice Burroughs’ vision or anything like that— but I mean it’s very flattering to be a part of it, and I think that scope of it all is quite cool to be a part of as well. I think to breathe life into Stanton, who directed it, his childhood dream is an amazing thing to do and be a part of.

Sounds Of Soul Visit Boston

By: Brennan Carley

Countless Top-40 stations herald Bruno Mars as the long awaited soul revivalist the country has been waiting for since the 1970s, but Fitz and the Tantrums proved that they are much more suited for the job during their raucous concert on Friday night. There was a harmonious and wholly enjoyable set that incorporated influences from the past while paving a new musical road.

Mylo Xyloto’ Has Immediacy, But Lacks Staying Power

By: Brennan Carley

Some bands spend a grueling amount of time in the studio because they wish to create an album of the utmost perfection, a sonic revelation that will appease fans and critics alike while making strides in the field of music. Others, however, are perfectly content to stick to the sound that had millions flocking to them in the first place.
