Civic Theatre of Allentown’s production of “Noises Off,” through Feb. 24 at the 19th Street Theatre, Allentown, is a madcap romp through the clichés of farcical comedy and slapstick, with some very inventive twists.
In each of the three acts of “Noises Off,” cast members perform the first act of a play-within-the play, a sex farce titled “Nothing On.”
No chance to get bored, though. The audience views each Act One from a different perspective: onstage rehearsal, backstage...
“Roma” is a fascinating film not so much for what it reveals, as for what it doesn’t reveal.
“Roma” is a revealer of the obvious.
In this, “Roma” director Alfonso Cuarón shows us “A Day In The Life,” or in the instance of “Roma,” a year in the life of a Mexican family, 1970-1971.

Q. My 13-year-old daughter and her friend were caught smoking cigarettes by her friend’s father. The father got very angry and told my child to go home.

Q. Pop-Pop, don’t feel bad that you gave me a cold in my eye. It wasn’t your fault ... was it?
This question came from my granddaughter, Maggie. She got conjunctivitis, known colloquially as “pink eye,” one week after I did.
