Oh comes HOME!


Thanks to gofobo and Regal Theatres we got a sneak peek of the movie HOME. Such a cute movie. HOME is a DreamWorks Animation20th Century Fox production. With a cast full of stars including Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Steve Martin ans Jennifer Lopez how can you go wrong. 

Oh (voiced by Jim Parsons) is a loveable, color changing, problem causing member of the Boov, who come to Earth to flee their mortal enemy and in the process take over the planet relocating all the humans to Australia. When Oh makes yet another mistake, he finds himself on the run from his fellow Boovs and in the process befriends Tip (voiced by Rihanna) an Earth girl in search of her mom.

Full of laughs, some love and a lots of music and dancing, HOME is a very family friendly movie. It tries to show that mistakes happen and it's more about what you do about your mistake rather than the mistake itself that counts. Tip along with her cat named pig helps Oh learn what it really means to have a HOME!

HOME comes to theaters Friday, March 27th. The Novaks' think it's a must see. But beware all the singing and dancing might have you saying "Oh, no! My hands are in the air like I just do not care!"

"I've Had the Time of My Life" with Dirty Dancing - The Classic Story on Stage


I had the pleasure of seeing Dirty Dancing- The Classic Story on Stage at the Connor Palace Theater at Playhouse Square in Cleveland, Ohio last weekend. What a wonderful performance in a beautiful venue. I was super excited to see this stage presentation, being an epic Dirty Dancing fan. The play did not disappoint.

Of course there is no competing with the amazing connection of Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey in the original film. It is near impossible to recreate the passionate magic shared between the two. This being said, the stage show was fantastic. The dancing was spectacular. The music was as memorable as ever. The love story of Baby and Johnny was of course captivating! And the use of digital backdrops helped create the outdoor water scenes, which I would have otherwise thought impossible to replicate.

Dirty Dancing is playing at the the Connor Place Theater at Playhouse Square through Sunday, March 22, 2015. If you get a chance definitely go see it! Not in the Cleveland area? Click here to see if it's coming to a theater near you. And remember, "Nobody puts Baby in a corner!"
