Ghosts in Motion

In 2011, New York City welcomed one of the most unsettling theater performances in years, Sleep No More. The production, based on Shakespeare’s Macbeth, emphasized an interactive experience among the audience, actors, and set. This is commonly known as breaking the fourth wall, and it became a defining feature of the show. Sleep No More allowed the audience to touch, explore, and be a part of the story line. A similar experience has now come to Iowa City.


Mr. Holmes returns

All three of these new Holmes productions have received positive critical and audience reception, but viewers may feel fatigued by the notion of yet another modern film adaptation of the character. Reboots and remakes are all the rage in today’s film and television landscape — but how many Sherlock Holmes stories are left to be retold?


Returning to the roots

Blue Moose Tap House will presenting an all-ages hip-hop and comedy show at 6 p.m. Friday, headlined by the long-running Kentucky rap group Nappy Roots.
