By Bridget Neirotti
Katonah Classic Stage promises to breathe new life into this 1992 off-Broadway classic by David Mamet. The play’s original debut was following the wake of the Anita Hill hearings against Clarence Thomas, as the world eagerly watched how these accusations played out in the media. History repeated itself over a decade later with the accusations against Brett Kavanaugh in 2018, making it only right that this play debuts its return to the stage among the discourse in recent years. KCS’s Oleanna revisits this story with the newfound lens of the #MeToo movement, political correctness, and cancel culture.

I had to meet adult Tony Soprano this summer so that I could meet his younger self this fall! For many years, I simply avoided watching The Sopranos because of its length and the commitment that comes with watching 86 episodes of television. Additionally, my hectic schedule would scarcely grant me the time to dive into a show that I knew would enthrall me and leave me paralyzed, eyes glued to the screen, backside to the chair.

This shining gem of a film festival is at the Jersey Shore. Located on Long Beach Island, a narrow strip of pristine beaches on one side and bayshores on the other, it's a festival gaining recognition with its selection of award-winning and new independent films. A plus for this festival - this year it is outdoors as well as inside. Last year, the Lighthouse Festival was one of the few festivals that were actually held, and using a drive-in format, some of the showings were even sold out. What's better than watching a movie outside? That would be watching a movie outside with the smell of the beach in the air.

There's a brand new talk show in town. But this one's unique. It's a talk show for ladies over a certain age. Yup, ladies with a few wrinkles and grey hairs.
The show will feature five co-hosts, Suzanne Ordas Curry (a film producer), Beth Abramson Brier (a screenwriter), Iliana Guibert (actress/filmmaker), Messalina Morley Alton (actress/screenwriter) and Zonie Le Sane (professional). The press release states that all of the hosts are over a certain age, but one of the hosts will always be a tad bit younger to keep them all current, because the beauty of being older is that although you know a lot, you also realize there's a lot you don't know. For example, one of the segments will be "Who is this?", where the ladies try to figure out who people are (think musical guests on SNL!)
Topics will include entertainment, families, shopping, arts, music, film, children, causes, aging, Broadway, health, the environment, living and more. The show's goal is to "talk about topics that unite us". There will be little political talk.
Guest co-hosts will appear throughout the season. Guests will include well-known actors, doctors, wellness specialists, filmmakers, non-profit pioneers, life coaches and other professionals. The show will also feature real woman talking about their unique experiences in life.
