"Pippin" started ominously with a playground set.  It was refreshing to see something new. The actor’s costumes were circus-like and nice to look at. As the play went on, I watched the ensemble mindlessly. It felt like a Disney performance on Main Street USA. My mind was turned off from the co...

“Kong: Skull Island” is definitely worth getting out of bed for. The action packed reboot stars Tom Hiddleston Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Riley and Brie Larson. Although the movie is full of action and hysterical one liners, the plot is mediocre at best. “Kong: Skull Island” is the same b...

When people go to the zoo, most of the time they’re just going to pass the time. What they don’t know is, just like us, every animal there has its own story. We can learn a lot from animals and we can all help make the Earth a better place for them. Zoos save these animals’ lives. When Nichola...
