Wednesday, November 6, 2013 by CAMILLE CAPRIGLIONE Special to The Press in Focus

Theater Review: No 'Mystery' at 'Berg; 'Drood' is simply great

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

The Muhlenberg College Department of Theater & Dance's "The Mystery of Edwin Drood," through Nov. 3, Empie Theatre, Baker Center for the Arts, Muhlenberg College, Allentown, is one of the best musical productions to ever hit the Lehigh Valley stage.

And it is a huge hit. From the opening immersive experience of the show's actors mingling with the audience as theater-goers take their seats and settle in, to the rousing finale, "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" is a must-see for musical-theater fans.

Movie Review: James Gandolfini: 'Enough Said'

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

When is speaking your mind saying too much? When is biting your tongue saying too little?

Truth in conversation, feelings and action is at the heart of "Enough Said," an entertaining and thoughtful romantic comedy memorable for its nuanced performances, especially that of James Gandolfini in what is his second-to-last big-screen role.

Look for an Oscar actor nomination for Gandolfini and a possible Oscar for the highly-regarded and beloved actor best-known as Tony Soprano on HBO's "The Sopranos."
