by Robert Lawlor

(2/27/2015) - Last week, wedding bells rang for two of Glee's finest couples, and there was lots of bliss and good times for all involved. With Brittany and Santana's wedding, one didn't expect anything less than something grand, and it was certainly grand. Brittany planned a big wedding in the barn she was born in, and despite panicking over all the details and things that could go wrong, Brittany had her lady there to give her an open mind. Of course, Santana was determined to keep Sue from attending their wedding and ruining the spirit of their love with her usual ways, but in usual Sue form - she got her way in the end and made a big splash by bringing Santana's Abuela to boot. After some real talk, Santana's Abuela was on the bandwagon, and Sue was part of the Brittana walk down the aisle.

by Sondra Forsyth (Dance - New York City)

(2/27/2015) - New York City Ballet's 'All Balanchine III, Hear the Dance: Italy' features a perfect pairing of pieces that brim with Balanchine's incomparable sense of showmanship. Ballet is an art form, but Mr. B knew that it can also serve as sheer entertainment without losing integrity. Beyond that, he was a master of making us 'see the music, hear the dance', as he put it. This double bill, with works set to scores by great Italian composers, does precisely that.
