CHICAGO – One potential theater-goer loves the “The Book of Mormon.” The other would rather stay home and watch old Ethel Merman YouTube videos. Pride Films & Theater offers the ultimate solution by combining both in a campy musical, “The Book of Merman.” Yep, two Elder characters from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints meets foghorn singer Ethel Merman.
CHICAGO – The subject of global warming is not going away, both from an environmental standpoint and as a debate. The argument that crystallized with Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” has effected politics, science and the thoughts of all world citizens. Academic Bjorn Lomborg contributes his point of view in the new documentary, “Cool It.”
CHICAGO – If you thought Al Gore’s truth was inconvenient, get a load of the one presented by filmmaker Robert Kenner. To paraphrase Peter Finch, Kenner’s new documentary is guaranteed to make viewers exclaim, “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to eat the same way anymore.”
