Holy Wha! ‘Escanaba In Da Moonlight’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BANGOR – Many theatre patrons probably don’t associate Jeff Daniels with the stage. You might think of his Emmy-winning turn in HBO’s “The Newsroom,” one of his various Golden Globe-nominated roles or appearances in notable films - yes, even “Dumb and Dumber.”

But he’s also recently received a Tony nomination for Broadway’s “Blackbird,” and in his home state of Michigan, he’s known as the founder of the Purple Rose Theatre Company, where he wrote and produced “Escanaba in da Moonlight.”

Staying in the loop

Looper' a fresh, fascinating take on time travel

Every once in a while, a film comes along that takes a tired cinematic trope and breathes new life into it. These new and interesting takes on old ideas are relatively rare why have a new take when old takes make plenty of money?

Take the new film 'Looper' for instance. The latest offering from writer/director Rian Johnson takes one of the classic science fiction foundations (time travel) and takes it in a direction that we've never seen onscreen. The result is a smart and challenging film that transcends its speculative origins.
