COMEDY | Tim Meadows

To many of us who were still in school when "Mean Girls" hit the screen, Tim Meadows will always be known as Mr. Duvall, one of our favorite high school principals.

THEATER | Phantom: Unmasked

Andrew Lloyd Webber has blown the world away with his delicate and moving music in the production of "The Phantom of the Opera." Based on the 1910 French novel, "Le Fantôme de l'Opéra" by Gaston Leroux, the musical has been a hit since its opening in 1986.

Theater Review: "The Winter's Tale" by Rochester Community Players

A tale for all seasons
Part domestic tragedy, part raucous comedy, mostly improbable fairy tale, “The Winter’s Tale” is one of Shakespeare’s most intriguing and confounding works. Rochester Community Players’ production of the show, running until the end of this month, is a well-conceived take on a play seldom seen but definitely worth seeing.


Exhibit Review: Dual Matisse exhibitions at Memorial Art Gallery

Learning curves
When we come to admire an artist's work, what we see is the expert representation of form and gesture, the elegant depiction of balance, and the rich tones carefully chosen to lead our emotions here and there. What is hidden from us are the long, laborious hours and obsessive repetition required for achieving the necessary muscle-memory, and the blood, sweat, crushing doubt, and stubborn dissatisfaction that accompany a person's resolve to master one medium, or many.
