On the surface, Tully is about the perils of motherhood. The late nights, the selfless acts that go unnoticed and the loss of your identity. I’ve experienced all these as a mother to a three-year-old pup. I can’t imagine the highs and lows that accompany raising a child. While motherhood plays a pivotal role in […]
Discombobulated, but an edge of your seat fun ride.
An enjoyable rollercoaster ride to impress even the most diehard Hitchcock fans.
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump Spar in Final Presidential Debate – While Clinton justified her stances on women’s rights and immigration, Trump provided some much-needed comic relief with gems such as calling Clinton a “nasty woman” and admitting to being a future poor loser. This late in election, you have to laugh to keep yourself […]

Unfortunately, Peter Webber’s “Emperor” doesn’t translate well […]
