Movie Review: All you need is glove

Tuesday, July 24, 2018 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

The feature animated film, “Yellow Submarine,” was produced to fulfill a three feature movie contract for The Beatles, the 1960s rock band that enraptured the world.

Fifty years after its release in 1968, with a restored print and soundtrack, the re-release shows that “Yellow Submarine” has traveled well. The film has even grown in stature for its inventive animation, dialogue of mordant wit and, of course, its soundtrack of Beatles’ songs, including the title song that inspired it.

Theater Review: PSF’s crowns a new ‘King’

Tuesday, July 24, 2018 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

The Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival (PSF) “King Richard II” is fierce.

And yet the king at the center of William Shakespeare’s history play, in its PSF debut though through Aug. 5, Main Stage, Labuda Center for the Performing Arts, DeSales University, is a soft target.

As the knives are pulled, the swords are drawn and the heads are rolled (and trundled out in bloody sacks), King Richard II (Christian Coulson) is emotionally-cauterized. You want to warn him, run to his side, give him a hug.
