Cirque du Soleil's 'Varekai' - Amazing talents presented in a superbly paced show
by Rod Parke - SGN A&E Writer

by Derich Mantonela - SGN A&E Writer

Opens Friday, everywhere

"Da Vinci Code" - if you're a fan of the 50-million-copies-sold novel you'll probably hate the movie version (it fails to measure up in almost every aspect), or if you're simply curious to see what you hope might be a passably entertaining date flick, you're go

First, it was cursed with the most unattractive, inappropriate, and silly set design I've seen since the disastrous "church basement" set of 'Don Giovanni' many seasons ago. What a shame that such an outstanding production in
