Based on the 20th Century Fox motion picture, with a screenplay by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg

The 1987 hit movie featuring Tom Hanks bursts onstage in this vibrant, funny and touching musical. When frustrated adolescent Josh Baskin wishes he were "big" and wakes up the next morning a 30-year-old man, he discovers there's much more to being an adult than he's bargained for-and learns we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own time. A witty, moving, insightful book and a dazzling, energetic, heartfelt, contemporary score make this already classic motion picture fantasy an unforgettable theatrical experience. 'Big' is satisfyingly good. The music of David Shire, the lyrics of Richard Maltby Jr., the book by Jerome Weidman and the choreography by Susan Stroman extol all the values of the grand tradition of musicals. At the Kentucky Center for the Arts.

Well, not only have they done well, this edition of MAMMA MIA! is just plain superb. (more...)

Chicago neo-psych rock band Post Animal released their critically acclaimed self-written, performed and produced debut album When I Think Of You In A Castle earlier this year via Polyvinyl, and today they share the music video for the album's lead single “Ralphie.” Band co-founder Joe Keery, known for his role as Steve Harrington in Stranger Things, recorded the album with his bandmates and sings vocals on “Ralphie,” but has remained a largely inactive member due to his busy acting schedule. While touring hasn't been in the cards, we're treated to Keery rejoining his friends at the Oasis for the final scene of their new music video. “Oasis is anywhere you can get together with all your buds,” Post Animal say about the music video. “Over the last few years a lot has changed for our band and we have learned to really appreciate the time we get to spend with one another. It was great to come full circle and catch up with Joe for this video, and we had a blast doing it.” Watch “Ralphie” exclusively via Apple Music HERE. (more...)
