  4. Review: 'The Passion': A rousing night for true believersRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 21, 2016 | Philly.com

    For others who may have strayed across "The Passion" on their way to rival programming like "Little Big Shots" or "Once Upon a Time," this two-hour Fox "live spectacular," despite its hefty dose of goodwill, was a spectacular-and-then-some exercise in excess. Following in the footsteps of recent live TV musicals including "Peter Pan" and "The Wiz," ''The Passion" went even beyond January's innovative "Grease" by originating almost totally outdoors, and, in its song-and-drama sequences, turning New Orleans into its backdrop.

  5. School that honors Virginia segregationist could be renamedRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 9, 2016 | Philly.com

    Sixty-eight-year-old Gladys Williams went to a segregated, black-only school in rural Virginia decades ago because the law required it. Now her grandson is scheduled to attend a middle school named for the state's most prominent champion of school segregation: Harry F. Byrd Sr. A precocious child with a good grasp of history, the 10-year-old asked her, "Grandma, why do I have to go to a school that was named after a racist who didn't want black people in the building?" Questions like his and people like Williams are driving a spirited movement to have Byrd's name erased from a suburban Richmond public school because of his staunch segregationist stance.

  7. How do locals celebrate Mardi Gras?Read the original story w/Photo

    Feb 4, 2016 | Philly.com

    Hungry visitors to New Orleans usually associate the city with storied Creole restaurants like Arnaud's, Galatoire's, and Commander's Palace, white-tablecloth shrines to such age-old dishes as trout meunire, filet gumbo, and frog legs Provencale. But come Carnival season, fancy fare is shelved in favor of rib-sticking, crowd-pleasing dishes that fuel long hours of parade-watching along St. Charles Avenue and Canal Street.

  9. Upcoming pop shows: Ccile McLorin Salvant, Joe Jackson, Leon BridgesRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 15, 2015 | Philly.com

    Since Ccile McLorin Salvant is still only 25 - she was 20 when she won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition in 2010 - so much of the discussion about the Miami-born jazz singer of Haitian and French-Guadeloupean descent is about precocity. She's so mature, so composed, so technically adept, and still so young.

  12. It may not take much to win the NFC EastRead the original story w/Photo

    Sep 25, 2015 | Philly.com

    Week 3 of the NFL season started Thursday night with an NFC East game that was almost as unwatchable as that penalty-filled, mistake-marred mess the Eagles and Cowboys staged four days earlier at Lincoln Financial Field. We did at least learn one thing from the New York Giants' 32-21 win over Washington at the same stadium where the Eagles will attempt to save their season Sunday against the New York Jets: Washington remains the team most likely to finish at the bottom of the NFC East.
