Hot Bijouxx's Josephine Baker tribute in 'Jazz Upstairs'

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 by CAMILLE CAPRIGLIONE Special to The Press in Focus

Hot Bijouxx is an entertaining throwback to Prohibition-era jazz. This energetic band plays a blend of French-gypsy swing waltz with a saucy musette style and a cool bossa nova sound. The group was nominated for a 2014 Lehigh Valley Music Award for Best New Album.

The band's summer tour kicked off on Bastille Day (July 14) and they returned to Musikfest for the third year. Past performances include Philadelphia's Magic Gardens, Riverside Festival of the Arts and the Doylestown Arts Festival.

Freddy particpants behind Third Mask's 'Seussical'

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 by DAWN NIXON Special to The Press in Focus

Third Mask Theatre Group presents the popular children's show, "Seussical the Musical," 7 p.m. Aug. 14, 15, 16; 2 p.m. Aug. 17, Northeast Middle School, 1170 Fernwood St., Bethlehem.

Nicholas Conti, a Bethlehem Township native, Freedom High School graduate and 2008 Freddy Award nominee, formed Third Mask Theatre with friend Jonathan Hoffman in 2011.

"We wanted to give young people the opportunity to participate in theater," says Conti, who is directing "'Seussical." Hoffman is dramaturge for the show.

Movie Review: 'Guardians': 'We are Groot'

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

With "Guardians Of The Galaxy," it's as if those comic-book "Bam!-Pow!-Zoom!" panels are right up there on the big screen.

"Guardians Of The Galaxy" director James Gunn is making his big-screen directorial debut. Gunn was screenwriter for "Super," 2010; "Dawn Of The Dead," 2004; "Scooby-Doo," 2002; "The Specials," 2000; and "Tromeo And Juliet," 1996.

As you can see from his film credits, Gunn has a cheesy sensibility. Gunn doesn't take the Marvel Comics universe too seriously.
