Pinsonnault is the king in the wings in 'Fortinbras'

by James Sanford
It’s not from a lack of coffee and it’s certainly not boredom. It’s the punishing schedule he’s set up for himself, which starts with a 2:15 a.m. wake-up call for his job as the morning and noon news anchor at WLNS-TV. Typically, he would stay up for a few hours after work ' “do some physical activity, maybe play golf” ' and then get to bed around 8 p.

Mother to mutha

Long-shelved 'Case 39' inspires chuckles, not chills

by James Sanford
(FRIDAY - Oct. 1) Maybe there's a sliver of truth in all those "Oscar curse" theories after all. Six years ago, Renee Zellweger took home a best supporting actress Academy Award for "Cold Mountain," in which she gave a memorably feisty performance as the tough farmwoman who teaches Civil War survival skills to lady of the manor Nicole Kidman. Since then, Zellweger has stayed busy, but her fans have stayed home.

When the vampire next door says ‘Let Me In,’ do it

by James Sanford
Abby is one of those friends your parents warned you about. Sure, she looks nice enough — but there’s something, well, strange about her. She’s the new girl in town who doesn’t like to talk about herself. She says she’s 12, “more or less.” She walks around barefoot in the middle of winter, claiming, “I don’t really get cold.” She’s also hungry all the time, but not for candy or burgers or anything else that the typical junior high kids eat. She prefers fresh blood.

‘It’s a profession that rotates in your brain’

Uncensored talk from Hollywood legend Tony Curtis

by Lawrence Cosentino
The diction of a thug, the soul of a poet and a complete lack of inhibition were three of the most charming things about actor Tony Curtis, who died Thursday. Back in 2002, Curtis came to East Lansing to perform in a musical version of his classic film, “Some Like it Hot.” The extrovert’s extrovert, Curtis said way more than we could fit into the story at the time, but now his passing Thursday at age 85 seems like a good time to uncork some heady Hollywood hooch.

Body and soul

Tierney Sutton Band pleases flesh, spirit

by Lawrence Cosentino
“Here I am, I’m a performer, I go out there and sing. I try to get on the treadmill so I look OK. Why doesn’t anybody hit on me?” But that’s how the sultry, silken-tressed singer wants it. Oh, it’s OK to lust after Sutton, but try to keep your libido metaphorical, in accordance with the writings of 13th-century Muslim Sufi mystic Rumi.
