THEATRE REVIEW: Wang Dang Doodle
Looking for men dressed as women, musical solos on a comb and random appearances from God? Then look no further: Wang Dang Doodle has invaded the stage at The Grand Theatre and is looking to woo audiences from across London.
MOVIE REVIEW: Bringing Down the House
Bringing Down the House is a "fish out of water" comedy that you'll want to cast back into the ocean.
Bringing is the newest incarnation of a long-running joke in popular culture: the fish out of water scenario, or in this case, the ghetto-girl-in-upper-middle-class-America film. From start to finish, the film reaffirms every negative stereotype of African-Americans, while also illustrating their positive attributes: their closeness with teenagers and usefulness to hard-working white people who have forgotten how to live.
This won't help
If you're planning on picking up a copy of the new video game EverQuest Online Adventures (Playstation 2), be prepared to kiss your social life goodbye. The game is like crack-cocaine – the minute you plug in, you're addicted.
Maggie: Pop goes the world
CD REVIEW: Tim Easton
Easton's music is grounded in a fine tradition of American (and Canadian) troubadour songwriters who know how to blend blues and rock influences into their own compositions. Break Your Mother's Heart is Easton's third and best record so far.
