El Rey to Premiere New Unscripted Series MATADOR on 7/15
by TV News Desk - May 8, 2014

Set to premiere Tuesday, July 15th at 9 pm ET/PT, Irreverent and action-packed, Matador chronicles the unlikely rise of Tony 'Matador' Bravo (Gabriel Luna), a popular soccer star who comes to be known as much for his playboy antics off the field as his dynamic moves on it.

BWW Reviews: American Ballet Theatre Delights With Gallic-Flavored Highjinks in DON QUIXOTE
by Sondra Forsyth - May 20, 2014

On the rain-soaked evening of May 16th 2014, ABT delivered a mood-boosting performance of 'Don Quixote' for a full house of grateful dancegoers at the Metropolitan Opera House in Lincoln Center.
