Curtain Call: Tryst of fate

Williamston’s latest gets hot and heavy in searing romantic comedy

by Tom Helma
In this era of casual sex where people seek comfort in anonymous hookups, you might sleep with someone before you know his or her last name. But who falls deeply in love immediately after a first tryst? “Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune,” playing through April 19 at Williamston Theatre, explores that possibility.

Five-star ‘Hotel’

Ralph Fiennes leads all-star cast in quirky, comedic ‘Grand Budapest’

by ALLAN I. ROSS
Over the last 18 years, writer/director Wes Anderson has refined a whimsical cinematic style that has the lushness of a Merchant Ivory weepie and the whirligig wackiness of a “Peewee’s Playhouse” episode. His films are stocked with offbeat characters, frequently featuring big name actors rendered unrecognizable by deliberately horrible makeup, who converse in bouncy Seussian rhythms and crackling Wildean wit. Stop-motion animation, elegant set design and sideways tracking shots abound.

SANCTUARY SPIRITS/AMERICAN FIFTH SPIRITS

by ALLAN I. ROSS
In the last two years, the Lansing area has welcomed two microbreweries to the growing craft beer scene: BAD Brewing Co. in Mason and EagleMonk Pub and Brewery in Delta Township.

Ales in the outfield

‘Beer hounds’ take over downtown ballpark for first-time event

by Katy Barth
As opening day fever sweeps across the country this week, it’s officially OK to start using the word “summer” again in regular conversation — as in baseball’s boys of summer, who took to the field after the bitterest winter in recent memory. But who’s to say America’s pastime is the game itself and not the forum for open-air, public socializing … and, you know, all that beer drinking.

by Kyle Koehler
Word about the thriving Lansing art scene was bound to get out sooner or later. This month the praises of three local artists who specialize in quilting, watercolor painting and Japanese woodblock printing, respectively, are getting national attention — international attention, in one case.
