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

By | 2019-02-20T14:54:43+00:00 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+00:00 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."

New relationships are the universe’s way of giving us yet another chance to get it right in the love department – and since none of us are getting younger, it’s wise not to squander it by making the same mistakes over and over. This time around, along with changing toxic behaviors that may have sent your significant other running for the nearest therapist or liquor store, consider cleansing a few areas of your life, tangible and otherwise. Here are a few places to start.
