    Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did 17th century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer ("Girl with a Pearl Earring") manage to paint so photo-realistically -- 150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers. Spanning eight years, Jenison's adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, on a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney, and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the collection of the Queen.

Their increasingly hilarious misadventures concerning the eccentrics in the neighborhood, and their respective pursuits of success and romance are accompanied by one of Bernstein’s most effervescent scores. Winner of five Tony Awards including Best Musical.

    This funny and delightful Tony-award winning musical is divided into two very different acts. Act One is traditional: Cinderella goes to the ball and captures the heart of the prince, Jack climbs the beanstalk and slays the giant, Little Red Riding Hood is saved from the wolf, and Rapunzel escapes her lonely tower. Meanwhile the Baker and his wife, on a quest to break the curse they are under, weave their way through the storybook characters to collect a cow as white as milk, a cape as red as blood, a slipper as pure as gold, and hair as yellow as corn. As intermission approaches, all wishes have been granted and happily ever after is at hand. Act Two, however, deals with what happens after happily ever after – the consequences that traditional fairy tales ignore and the responsibilities that come with getting what you want. Together both acts create an unforgettable show that brings new meaning to the stories we tell our children.

Baz Luhrmann sets this 1996 version of the romantic tragedy, "Romeo & Juliet" in the fictional modern-day location of Verona Beach. This film retains the original Shakespearian dialogue, but the Montagues and Capulets are represented by warring business empires where swords are merely a brand of gun and bored youths are easily spurred towards violence.

This 2004 "The Merchant of Venice", directed by Michael Redford who presents a empathetic portrayal of Shylock (in his director's belief that he was Shakespeare's first tragic hero) played by screen legend Al Pacino and also features Jeremy Irons. This is perhaps the most sumptuous cinematic adaptation of any of the Bard's plays to date and set in the city for which it is named. "A vivid engrossing and defensible Shakespeare adaptation, a period piece that truly has a feel for a time long past--and a place and attitude that are not"

It's storytelling at its best. The trademark caricature is the essence of James Gregory's comedy: rib-tickling reflections on life from the front porch.”
