Carrie: The Musical

The Slow Burn Theatre Company in Boca Raton continues it’s sixth season at the West Boca Community High School with the now infamous Carrie: The Musical. It’s fitting that Slow Burn has chosen Carrie as their October offering. Based on the classic 1976 Brian DePalma film, which in turn was based upon Stephen King’s first published novel, […]

Doctor Who: Flatline (S8 Ep 9) 4

Jamie Mathieson’s second Doctor Who script to air (his first was last week’s Mummy on the Orient Express) makes him a real up-and-comer in the Whoniverse! In my opinion, his second at-bat is another home run! (And that’ll be the end of the sports cliches, I promise.) Flatline starts out as a Locked-room Mystery and […]


Doctor Who: Mummy on the Orient Express (S8 Ep 8)

“Sometimes the only choices are bad ones. But you still have to choose.” -the Doctor This is a juicy episode! Another instant classic! I want to say this is shaping up to be an exceptional season for the show, but if I’m honest I have felt that way with each successive year since Christopher Eccleston […]

Opera Heritage: Fanny Heldy

In classical music, and in particular the world of opera, we rely heavily on our history – after all the bulk of our performance repertoire is more than a century old.   We have mountains of tradition behind us when we perform.   Luckily for those of us born in the 20th century or later, we also […]


The Marvelous Wonderettes

Saturday October 4th was a big day for Boca Raton’s Slow Burn Theatre Company. On one hand it was the opening night for Roger Bean’s The Marvelous Wonderettes, on the other it was Slow Burn’s first performance at The Broward Center. Over the last five years Slow Burn has made quite a name for itself […]

Doctor Who: Kill the Moon (S8 Ep 7)

I actually had to watch this episode twice before I could fully wrap my mind around it. I’ve noticed from the first episode of this season that these episodes are better the second (and third and fourth) time around, but this one is simply too much to take in the first time! It’s one of […]

Classic Doctor Who: Spearhead From Sapce

Classic Doctor Who #3 – Spearhead from Space

Spearhead from Space originally aired across the month of January, 1970. It was the first serial of the Seventh Season of Doctor Who. This serial marks the first time the show was broadcast in color, and the 3rd Doctor brings with him a much more mature tone to the show, thanks not only to Jon […]

Doctor Who; The Caretaker

Doctor Who: The Caretaker (S8 Ep 6)

CLARA’S WORLDS COLLIDE!!! You knew it had to happen eventually… Especially when this season started off with Clara meeting such a cool, charming, fascinating character as Danny Pink. Most companions don’t have very much keeping them bound to their Earth life. There will be people about whom they care, but usually traveling with the Doctor […]
