由《音樂之聲》作者操刀,被譽為「20世紀最好的音樂劇」的《旋轉木馬》(carousel)正在第五大道劇院上演。引人入勝的情節,膾炙人口的歌曲及妙趣橫生的舞蹈組成了這部歷經多次改編,常演不衰的經典百老匯歌舞劇。

音樂劇展現了19世紀緬因的海濱漁村裡,兩對年輕人的愛情故事,一段悲情一段詼諧,在這樣的穿插中,生命、愛情、死亡、贖罪這些永恆的主題交織成了一出苦樂參半的人生哲理劇。

美國奧巴馬總統最近在國情咨文中提議對高中畢業、就讀社區學院的美國學生,只要合乎政府設定的標準,就可享免學費優惠。很多美國家庭及高中學生對此項提議都報以極大的期望。在美國,十八歲就算成年;因此高中畢業對美國孩子來說,是人生一個重要的里程碑。很多美國孩子在高中畢業後就搬離家庭,開始獨立生活。想上大學很可能都得自己設法張羅學費。

  • WASHINGTON (AP) — Trading barbs, the U.S. and Israel escalated their increasingly public spat Wednesday over Benjamin Netanyahu's GOP-engineered congressional speech next week, with the Israeli prime minister accusing world powers of rolling over to allow Tehran to develop nuclear weapons. Secretary of State John Kerry openly questioned Netanyahu's judgment on the issue.

  • NEW YORK (AP) -- Three men accused of plotting to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group and wage war against the United States were arrested Wednesday on terrorism charges, including one who spoke of attacking President Barack Obama or planting a bomb on Coney Island, federal officials said.

  • STEPHENVILLE, Texas (AP) -- Jurors who rejected an insanity defense and convicted a former Marine in the deaths of famed "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle and his friend said Wednesday the man's past behavior undermined his argument that he couldn't tell right from wrong.

  • TOKYO (AP) -- Further restricting travel to the already isolated country, North Korea barred foreigners from one of its most popular tourist events - the annual Pyongyang marathon - because of concerns over the Ebola virus, travel agencies said Monday.

  • The Order 1886 (PS4) Box Art (http://www.playstation.com/en-us/games/the-order-1886-ps4/) Rated M by ESRB The Order: 1886 introduces players to a unique vision of Victorian-Era London where man uses advanced technology to battle a powerful and ancient foe, the half-breeds. As Galahad, a member of an elite order of Knights, the player embarks on a thrilling ride to uncover the mysteries surrounding The Order and the growing threat of the enemy rebels. I say “ride” because the pacing of The Order: 1886 is more akin to a rollercoaster than a shooting gallery, and especially a far cry from the abundance of open world games that have flooded the market in recent years. Some may find the linearity of The Order to be too constraining or boring, but for those players who want to buy into the story and experience, this game might be worth your time.
  • Republique Remastered (PC) Review (http://www.camouflaj.com/) What started out as an episodic stealth adventure game on phones and tablets quickly grew into a fan favorite video game amongst many journalists and crowds of gamers.  Republique was originally funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign, and I think all purchasers of the series can agree, we’re thankful it got funded and created.

  • Quarter 2 Preview

    This article is the second part of a four-part series highlighting games due to release in 2015 that demand your attention.

  • Grim Fandango Remastered Box Art(http://grimremastered.com/)
    It’s been a long, long time since Grim Fandango has been seen in the eyes of the gamer public. Now, remastered in all of its day of the dead styled glory, Grim Fandango is back and only on PC, PS4, PS Vita, and Mac. It was originally developed by LucasArts, but now Double Fine took over re-release of this classic adventure game, which seems only fitting since Tim Schaefer created this game, and is now a prominent figure at Double Fine. The game won a ton of awards back in its original release in 1998, but didn’t succeed financially because adventure games were on the downfall in popularity. Grim Fandango is one of those rare, humorous, and adventurous video games done by LucasArts, and I’m so glad it’s finally back to be played on modern consoles.

  • New 3DS XL
    Earlier Today at a Nintendo Direct, Nintendo officially announced that the New 3DS XL will be launching in the United States on February 13th of this year. While many were excited to hear this news, some of us were scratching our heads thinking “Yeah well..what’s so great about a new 3DS XL?”
  • Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution (PS3/Xbox 360/PC) (http://www.naruto-stormrevolution.com) Rated T for Teen by ESRB. Full Disclosure, I despise Naruto. I find it to be one of the most God-awful anime properties to ever exist, from its garbage animation quality, to its over-wrought story, terrible characters, and cancerous fan-base that helped destroy the anime scene in the States. Literally nothing good has come from the series, except for a few mildly entertaining brawlers.
  • Lords of The Fallen (PS4, Xbox One, PC) Box Art(http://lordsofthefallen.com/)  Rated M by ESRB. Lords of the Fallen marks the developer CI Games’ first foray into AAA action RPG genre that lends itself to the framework established by the critically acclaimed “Souls” series, though falling short of that illustrious title. However, for a developer that previously released bargain-bin Nintendo DS games and budget shooters this effort is admirable and worth a look for those individuals who feel the wait between Dark Souls 2 (PS3, X360, PC) and Bloodborne (PS4) is taking a bit too long.
