As early as 10 years old she knew that drawing was a way for her to destress and decompress, a useful skill when her parents told her at that age that they were moving from New York City to Detroit."It was hard trying to adjust, so that was my way of being able to express how I was feeling," Edmond said. "But it just gave me joy and I liked doing it."

Revry is the LGBTQ Streaming Service That You’ve Been Waiting For

By | 2019-03-20T09:21:50-04:00 February 20th, 2019|Entertainment, Features|

Diverse media representation has made great strides in recent decades, but most LGBTQ people can attest to the fact that they're still not regularly seeing themselves included in mainstream entertainment. And when it comes to streaming platforms, the LGBTQ category is usually limited to a small amount of content that leaves little to no room for a variety of storytelling. That fact was not lost on ally Alia J. Daniels either, a Michigan native who transplanted to Los Angeles to finish Loyola Law School and start a career in entertainment law. She said she and a group of friends noticed the sparseness in LGBTQ content on mainstream apps in 2015.

Broadway Actor Ned Noyes Talks LGBTQ Identity and ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’ at The Fisher Theatre Through Feb. 24

By | 2019-02-06T16:06:27-04:00 February 6th, 2019|Entertainment, Features|

In an amateur stage production it's not unusual for there to be a few hiccups throughout the show. In fact, even Broadway-caliber performances don't always make it through without a hitch. That is, after all, why "the show must go on" has become such a famous saying both in and out of show business. But in the comedy "The Play That Goes Wrong," that concept is blown way out of proportion when the Cornley University Drama Society does its best to put on a 1920s murder mystery play. Cast members have to deal with stuck doors, forgotten lines, collapsing floors and, according to cast member Ned Noyes, "many things you'll never see coming going wrong, too."
