Talented kids of ‘School of Rock’ make an otherwise lackluster production sing
 The 2003 film “School of Rock” — written by Mike White, directed by Austin’s own Richard Linklater and starring Jack Black
            — was a funny, heartfelt movie that cleverly deconstructed the Hollywood cliché of the “inspiring teacher,” as seen in films
            like “Dead Poets...

Think Valentine’s Day sucks? House of Torment has a vampire-themed haunted house for you
 Does anyone really like Valentine’s Day? The restaurants are packed, the flowers are wildly marked up, the babysitters are all taken, and who needs that much chocolate so soon after the December holidays? Actually, I take that back ... we can always use more chocolate. Still, Valentine’s Day is just a made-up holiday. Not like...

 The 2004 film “Finding Neverland” would not seem, at first blush, to be a natural fit for a Broadway musical comedy. Directed

Austin Playhouse brings back timely, moving story of immigrant to small-town Texas
 I am a Jewish transplant to Texas who married a shiksa (a non-Jewish woman) from small-town Texas. Just last month, I related
            to my mother-in-law the story of Hanukkah, after which she told me that she didn’t understand why there has been so much prejudice,
            historically, against the Jewish people. At the time...
