Halloween will be here before you know it. Fortunately, we have movies such as “My Animal” (Paramount) to put us in the (f)right mood. While there are some vague elements such as the time period (could be any time between the 1990s and present day) and the location (some of the accents scream New England), there’s nothing ambiguous about the way it equates queerness with supernatural otherness.

Two plays written by two of Broadway’s greatest playwrights have recently opened, both dealing with AIDS. Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s “Into the Woods” was seen as an allegory for the AIDS crisis when it debuted in 1987. Terrance McNally’s “Love! Valour! Compassion!”, which debuted on Broadway in 1994 deals with AIDS head-on as two of the characters battle the disease.

Miami City Ballet (MCB) and Artistic Director Lourdes Lopez successfully balance homage to dance history and the monumental legacy of George Balanchine, while also highlighting the choreographic genius of some of today’s most gifted choreographers. The 2023-24 season does just that, but audience favorites aren’t left out of the mix either, with the return of “George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker” and the new interpretation of “Swan Lake” from Alexei Ratmansky.

In what was one of the hottest summers on record – temperature-wise – almost everybody knows the best place to beat the heat was your local multiplex. Drink a cool beverage, eat a bucket of popcorn, and watch a movie. There was no shortage of summer movies in 2023, and the following is a list of my five favorites.
