THEATER REVIEW

Wednesday, October 2, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

Pennsylvania Playhouse 'Spelling Bee' letter-perfect

The Pennsylvania Playhouse (TPP) production of "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" creates a conundrum: Is it this community theater or regional theater?

Yes, TPP's "Spelling Bee" is that good. You might say it's letter-perfect. Wordsmiths should not miss "Bee," which spells out many unusual words (syzygy, cenacle, elanguescence), has a plethora of puns and a dollop of double-entendres.

Movie Review: 'Prisoners' takes no prisoners

Wednesday, October 2, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

When it comes to psychological thrillers, "Prisoners" takes no prisoners.

"Prisoners," paced by an intense, carefully-crafted and completely believable performance by Hugh Jackman, is a tension-filled nail-biter with a plot twist that you probably won't see.

Keller Dover (Jackman) is a middle-class father living in western Pennsylvania who owns his owns remodeling business. He and his wife, Grace (Maria Bello), have a teen son, Ralph (Dylan Minnette), and young daughter Anna (Erin Gerasimovich).

Make your trees storm-proof

Wednesday, October 2, 2013 by The Press in Focus

Let's hope this October there are no storms that cause power outages in the Lehigh Valley because of falling or uprooted trees.

We wouldn't want three times to be the charm.

In 2011, it was the Halloween nor'easter, which broke records for snowfall in 20 cities along the East Coast, Oct. 28 - Oct. 30. Up to 16 inches of snow fell in Pennsylvania.

Last year, it was Superstorm Sandy, which hit coastal regions Oct. 29, with more than 100 deaths and homes and property destroyed.

Will three times be the charm or the alarm?
