Hamilton, the tony award winning Broadway musical, has finally come to Chicago, and boy was the performance worth the hype.

Blistered feet from a wooden floor. Cramps in calves from pointed toes. Sore fingertips from countless hand-sewn costumes. These are just some of the things that the members of Orchesis deal with while preparing for their performances. For two weeks, the group has been developing their technique and r...

“La La Land” review

Brendan Brady, Entertainment Editor

January 9, 2017


Filed under Entertainment

I’ll get it out of the way now: If you don’t like musicals, you probably won’t like “La La Land.” The same goes for warm, fuzzy banter, Hollywood nostalgia, and obnoxiously artsy cinematography. That being said, the movie was very good. And as someone who’s a sucker for musical numbers, witty...

24k Magic: C- Like most Bruno Mars songs, you’ll be belting “24k Magic” at the top of your lungs for about a month, and then you’ll never want to hear it again. This song hardly strays from the stereotypical party anthem, with references to Mars’ designer shoes and coat along with the pock...

Filed under Entertainment

When it comes to racing games, it’s sometimes difficult for me to tell them apart because they just mesh together.  “Forza Horizon 3” is very close to the exception I was hoping for, however it’s not a shameless generic cash grab like it could have been. It was so close to being a completely ...

Brendan Brady, Entertainment Editor

October 4, 2016


Filed under Entertainment

An incurable disease. A subterranean, flesh-eating monster. A stoic loner in tune with the natural world. A goofy, money-hungry city-dweller. “Dust” is brimming with movie clichés. And yet, in its roughly 27 minute run time, the short film employs its troupes with far more purpose and smarts th...
