AT THE MOVIES: Very Dirty Dancing

Assassination Tango Andrew Phillips 3.5 Hatchets So OK, I’m that guy who kept stepping on the girl’s toes during the spring dance. Needless to say, the tango is well beyond my comprehension.

Let’s see that smile: National’s 42nd Street is a little too cheeky

Prodigious professionalism is no substitute for a heartfelt performance. There’s something uncomfortably chilly about the few dozen chorus members in “42nd Street,” who don’t blink while they mechanically go through their dances like a bevy of mannequins possessed by the spirit of Ginger Rodgers’ legs.

Often extending invitations to the teams they just battled on the field, the rugby team throws parties in apartments, houses and has social events in Froggy Bottom Pub […]

Baseball weathers stormy week
