(LONG BRANCH, NJ) — James McLure’s Iago opened last week at New Jersey Repertory Company in Long Branch. It is the New Jersey Premiere of a seldom seen work by the late playwright who died in 2011. The play offers a fascinating look inside the world of backstage romances. But we’re not just talking about a leading man falling for his leading lady, we’re talking about a triangle between a husband and wife team and her new lover - all in the sam...

Set in the New Mexico desert, not far from the casinos and the spaceport, an enigmatic story of buried secrets, improbable friendship, and unexpected redemption follows Sheridan, a Connecticut man who has fled his life on the East Coast under mysterious circumstances, and Soledad, the wisecracking, teenage card player he befriends. That’s the story behind Las Cruces by Vincent Delaney, which was the winner of the 2016 Premiere Stages Play Festiva...

Keith Monacchio fans can finally get their hands on a few songs that he’s been playing live for a few years along with a bunch of new ones in his latest release, The Dust-Up. Some of the songs will remind long-time fans of his work in The Commons; some will evoke memories of his brilliant solo release The Long Evening; and some veer into new frontiers. And that’s exactly what he was looking for - a record that sounds a bit like an old friend, b...

Is there any other film industry that can claim to rival that of France when it comes to boasting an abundance of high profile female filmmakers? It could be argued that of France’s current crop of young auteurs, it’s the women - Mia Hansen Love (Eden), Rebecca Zlotowski (Grand Central), Celine Sciamma (Girlhood), Lucie Borleteau (Fidelio: Alice’s Journey) - who are producing the most interesting work. And they’ve not been marginalized either. Di...

For whatever reason, students in school are taught the distant past rather than recent history. Schools rarely teach the lessons learned in the sixties or inform students about the problems encountered in the areas they live. The Newark riots, which took place for 6 days during the summer of 1967, is a perfect example. While kids today are growing up seeing violence in places like Ferguson (Missouri), Baltimore (Maryland), and Milwaukee (Wisco...

In The American Soldier, a 55-minute tour de force, enhanced by an ingenious interplay of sound and lights, Douglas Taurel (Mr. Robot, Nurse Jackie, The Americans) enters into the personas of 14 veterans and their family members, telling their story of courage and sacrifice. The American Soldier exposes their flaws, and their scars, with both darkness and humor. It is not simply a play, but a journey through the American story, moments that reso...

You’re gonna die. Yep, despite all your best efforts to maintain a healthy lifestyle, despite waiting for the green light before you cross the road, at some point the reaper’s cold fingers will take you by the hand and lead you off to some much debated final destination. Given every one of us will experience it, the subject of death has rarely been broached in cinema. Understandably so, maybe. After all, it’s something we don’t like to be reminde...

The members of the band The Jelly Jam – Ty Tabor (King’s X) on guitar and vocals, Rod Morgenstein (Winger & The Dixie Dregs) on drums, and John Myung (Dream Theater) on bass -- are known much better for those other bands they are in, and every music magazine profile about the power trio will tell you this. What’s not likely to come out is how long this band has actually been together, in some form or another.

The Top Folk Albums, Songs, Artists, and Labels chart of July 2016 shows Sam Bush and Joan Baez, a pair of familiar names, at the top. In the third spot is New Jersey’s own, Spook Handy, with Pete, Woody & Me, Volume I - Keep the Flame Alive - the New Brunswick artist’s 5th full length release and the highest charting record of his career.

2016 may go down as the year of reunions that many thought would never happen. Earlier in the year, Guns & Roses began their Not In This Lifetime tour and, on September 30, Days Awake will perform together for the first time in about 7 years at House of Independents in Asbury Park — a reunion that was nearly as difficult to put together.
