Will Ferrell, Ana Gasteyer, Vanessa Bayer, Cecily Strong and Colin Jost will appear in a national public service announcement (PSA) wearing the rag & bone limited-edition tee. The Key To The Cure PSA will appear in major fashion and lifestyle magazines in September and October. Saks Fifth Avenue's charity shopping weekend will take place Thursday through Sunday, October 16 to 19, at all Saks Fifth Avenue nationwide and on saks.com and saksoff5th.com. During the shopping weekend, 2% of participating vendor sales will be donated to Tigerlily Foundation. In the 15 years since the inception of the Saks Fifth Avenue charity shopping weekend, the retailer has raised over $35 million for cancer research. To help raise money and awareness for women's cancers, Saks Fifth Avenue Tysons Galleria will partner with Tigerlily Foundation to host a kickoff event on Wednesday, October 15th.

by Alan Katz - Aug 25, 2014

The catchy and clever script more than makes up for the drags during movement pieces, and that dragging might have been as much from my desire to get back to the story and its characters as from anything else.

Most of the characters were lovable, and those that weren't were eminently hateable, which is just as useful and twice as hard. If you lived through the 1990's, and especially if you were young during that time, you'll recognize these characters instantly, and this production is made to tickle your nostalgia thoroughly (more...)
