    Hogan Family Heirs

    By Jason Scavone

    It’s sometimes easy to forget here in this Golden Age of Television, with your Breaking Bad and your Mad Men and your collection of Wire DVDs you keep forcing your friends to borrow that the medium is still, more often than not, about repackaging familiar storylines, similar characters and redundant settings. This is why there’s an endless barrage of cop procedurals […]

    Set a Reminder for These Seven Must-See Shows

    By Steve Bornfeld

    War Horse Finally—a kinda-nonmusical invading the tuneful Broadway Series. Blending live action and puppetry, the acclaimed Brit import about a regal thoroughbred features an orchestra and symphonic background score but leans more toward a straight play—it won the 2011 Tony Award for Best Play—and could signal more touring dramas. Oct. 2-6, The Smith Center. Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

    It’s a beautiful life for fans of the arts this fall. The debut of Life Is Beautiful, the Downtown music, art, culinary and learning festival, is the must-attend event of the season, uniting Vegas bands the Killers and Imagine Dragons. Other fall highlights include the proliferation of Burning Man-style art; new residencies at the Cosmopolitan’s P3 Studio; the triumphant return of formerly local authors; a solid lineup for both community theater and The Smith Center (including War Horse); and a new crop of TV shows and movies (such as Gravity with George Clooney).

    This Season’s Seven Must-See Movies

    By Una LaMarche

    Salinger I’m a sucker for documentaries, especially when they’re about the literary world’s most famous recluse, whose work unintentionally inspired at least two high-profile assassins. My interest is piqued by the fact that this movie is written, produced and directed by Shane Salerno, who penned 2007’s awesomely bad Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem. Sure, Salerno didn’t get […]

    By M. Scott Krause

    Buffet is Beautiful

    By Geoff Carter

    Earlier this month, just before I moderated a “DTLV Players” panel at the Vegas Music Summit, I told festival founder Rehan Choudhry that I’d finally made up my mind to attend the Life Is Beautiful festival, which will consume the entirety of the Fremont East Entertainment District on October 26-27.

    Man on Fire

    By Pj Perez

    The festival of creative expression known as Burning Man has become a fixture of Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, but when it first moved from the Bay Area in 1996, the Burning Man concept was foreign to the Silver State. Las Vegas native Anthony Bondi, however, knew its presence demanded reaction. “Burning Man is in our […]

    Jade in the USA

    By Steve Bornfeld

    Demure. Adorable. Could kick your caboose from Mandalay Bay to Shanghai. And so fit and food-smart I want to drive her to the nearest Burger King and force-feed her a Whopper just to drag her down to my gastronomic level. “You like vegan pizza, don’t you?” I inquire. “Are you following me?” the little lady […]

    Comedy for Christmas

    After a brilliant summer that saw the likes of Matt Braunger, Aisha Tyler and a blistering set from Kyle Kinane in front of only 40 people at Boomer’s Bar on Aug. 12, the comedy road map to the end of the year looks surprisingly slim.

    Stage

    Additions (hello, The Smith Center), subtractions (good-bye, Phantom) and relocations (rent that U-Haul, Blue Men) mark the shifting entertainment landscape: Our new performing arts center opens the cultural floodgates, while the Strip welcomes newbies such as Rock of Ages and married music-makers Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, and waves ta-ta to that vengeful masked romantic and our favorite Peep, Holly Madison.
