Album Review of Ruben Studdard's "Love IS."

When looking for a job, it’s a good idea to leave those eyebrow rings and ear gauges at home. Interview appearance is more important than most of today’s students realize, said Mark Brostoff, associate director for the Kelley School of Business’ Undergraduate Career Services.

This movie is not bad, but not great. I suppose it might be a fair alternative if you go to the video store and every other movie with the plot "family man gives a finger to the naysayers and overcomes great obstacles to achieve his long-lost dream" has already been rented. Otherwise, stick to movies such as "The Rookie," which did this plot before and better than this movie.

Prince of Persia Classic: C

If this game were longer, or a little bit easier (like the "Sands of Times" games), it would be a lot of fun, but as it is you'd be much better off downloading that episode of "South Park" where the Persians take over the lesbian bar instead of spending your points on this.

Knocked Up: A

This film is consistently laugh-out-loud funny, and even the plot points that would feel bogged down in a typical romantic comedy are perfect here.

The provocative and unusual production “Nine” opened Friday night at the Ruth N. Halls Theatre. A mixed bag of stupendous and so-so performances, “Nine” fell short of my expectations but still delivered an engaging and entertaining show.

The musical opening Friday at the Ruth N. Halls Theatre will take its audience somewhere outside of reality, says graduate student John Armstrong. Tony Award-winning “Nine, the Musical” follows the story of an Italian film director named Guido Contini, played by Armstrong. The musical is based on Federico Fellini’s Italian film “8 1/2.”

Department of Theatre and Drama faculty announced the 2007-2008 season last Friday at a Theatre Circle-hosted dinner for donors and friends. Upcoming productions run the gamut from a Shakespearean comedy to an IU student’s original screenplay. There will be eight performances split between the Ruth N. Halls Theatre and the smaller, more versatile Wells-Metz Theatre.

"Big Love” director John Maness said he thought audiences would be shocked by the show’s openly suggestive content. But he forgot some other things they might be shocked by – the production’s talented actors and top-notch script.

Despite what people might think, the play opening Friday at the Wells-Metz Theatre is not about Mormons on HBO, says the play’s director, John Maness. While the HBO TV series is about a man with three wives, Maness’ “Big Love,” by playwright Charles Mee, is based off an ancient Greek tragedy called “The Suppliant Women,” said Maness, a graduate student.

Things will be heating up around town this spring in more ways than the weather. The Bloomington Area Arts Council will kick off its annual One Book, One Bloomington communitywide reading project Feb. 28.

The atmosphere of the Ruth N. Halls Theatre was rowdy Friday night after the curtain rose. The opening night of Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” was uproarious. Its colorful, charismatic cast kept audience members captivated and chuckling in their seats.
