Journey brings a new face to vintage rock

Sept. 4, 2014 7:02 a.m.

Journey opened its hour-and-a-half set at the BMO Harris Pavilion with "Be Good to Yourself" and served a steady stream of its classics: "Separate Ways," "Any Way You Want It" and "Only the Young." No one can ever truly replace "The Voice" Steve Perry, but sound-alike Arnel Pineda comes damn close -- and, at age 46, he brings his own youthful vibrancy to the band's current line-up.

Chamber's "Master Class" is a triumph for two women

Aug. 9, 2014 12:16 p.m.

"Master Class" is truly a one woman play, even though there are other characters scattered about. They are all mere foils for a part that demands towering strength and passion, which Angela Iannone delivers in spades. But it is also a very special job by director Jill Anna Ponasik.

Too Much Metal celebrates "Wisconsin's number" with Favre news

Aug. 4, 2014 6:06 p.m.
