THE ROYAL WEDDING
May 18, 2018  
I did not get up at 7am to watch the whole thing in real time, but I have lost nearly 2 hours watching the highlights on different news and entertainment sites. The whole thing does warm my heart. Besides loving the idea of a "black" Princess. The two seem genuinely to have found a soul mate. But then again, Kate & William seem like a true love match as well. Diana must be looking out for her boys from above, sending them mates to create happy unions.

Tinsel & Tine has a pair of tickets to GIVEAWAY to Kimmel Center Broadway Philadelphia THE SOUND OF MUSIC (Running April 24- 29, 2018).

If there's one thing I'm not ashamed of it's that I was weaned on Movie Musicals! Although, I don't love all of them, you can keep “Carousel” and “Oklahoma”, but “The Sound of Music” that will forever remain very close to my heart.  From Julie's first twirl to that traitorous Rolf, I’m enthralled with every song & scene.  So much so, it’s hard to pick my favorite, yet I’m going to make you choose.

To Enter for a Chance to win Tickets to the April 24th performance at The Merriam Theater (no substitutions) Comment on T&T's Facebook post with your favorite part or song from Rodgers and Hammerstein “The Sound of Music”.

So as not to leave out Twitter Subscribers to Enter Tweet:

#PhillyCalendar April 24-29 @KimmelCenter presents THE SOUND OF MUSIC - My favorite SOM song is (name your fav) what's yours? #BWYPHL  http://tinyurl.com/qctmaf7

Winner will be chosen Sat. afternoon 4/21 notified via your comment, so be sure you have followed Tinsel & Tine’s fb page, so I can tag you. I'll  reply back to your tweet if Winner is a Twitter entry.
THE HILLS ARE ALIVE! A brand new production of The Sound of Music is coming to Philadelphia. The spirited, romantic and beloved musical story of Maria and the von Trapp Family will once again thrill audiences with its Tony®, Grammy® and Academy Award® winning Best Score, including "My Favorite Things," "Do-Re-Mi," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "Edelweiss" and the title song. The Sound of Music features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, suggested by "The Trapp Family Singers" by Maria Augusta Trapp.

The Sound of Music enjoyed extraordinary success as the first live television production of a musical in over 50 years when The Sound of Music Live! aired on NBC in December, 2013 and was seen by over 44 million people. 2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the film version, which continues to be the most successful movie musical in history.

qFLIX PHILLY FILM FESTIVAL
March 19 -25th, 2018


Opening night:  HELLO AGAIN Director by Tom Gustafson, USA, 2017, 145 mins, Drama, Musical Philadelphia Premiere

It’s all about love and lust, in all its varieties, as qFLIX Philadelphia 2018 opens with the groundbreaking musical, “Hello Again” from director Tom Gustafson (“Were the World Mine”) with a star-studded cast, Audra McDonald, Cheyene Jackson, Martha Plimpton, Sam Underwood. The New York Times declared: ‘“Hello Again’ largely eschews dialogue as it leaps among historical eras and song sequences, depicting a series of fraught romantic encounters across decades,” calling Gustafson “an ambitious creator” redefining the genre. The Philadelphia Inquirer named “Hello Again,” the wildest, sexiest, and certainly one of the smartest movie musicals ever made.” Miami New Times wrote “The cast is strong, with Michael John LaChiusa’s score–its stirring evocations of lust and loneliness and fleeting connection–is well played and sung.

    Food n Film: BURNT

    Food n Film: BURNT
    Bradley Cooper has more than charisma, he has an over abundance of Chi, which radiates out from him; so for me, this role as temperamental and damaged chef Adam Jones, who also inspires great love and admiration from those around him, works on the level of characterization. In fact, I think he's among a very short list of actors who would be able to pull off being so self-involved and yet likable. Doesn't hurt that he really speaks French too! READ POST

    Food n Film: CHEF

    Food n Film: CHEF
    Much of the movie centers around the father/son relationship, and how much they learn from each other. But the real star of the film is all the food preparation, every other scene made me groan with want of everything up on that screen! Particularly the perfectly roasted and rubbed brisket, the crispy fat of the pork belly, sizzling bacon and the much ballyhooed Chocolate Lava Cake. READ POST

    Food n Film: CHOCOLAT
    If you’re a foodie movie lover who saw Lasse Hallström’s The Hundred Foot Journey (see T&T post), this summer you may be wondering what delicious visual journey might be awaiting you in the theater next. Well, how about a look back at his film Chocolat (2000), which stars French actress Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench and Johnny Depp. Hallström’s has a special talent for turning cooking into a dramatic movie journey...READ MORE

    Food n Film: THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY

    ...young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste. The vendor, oblivious to the thrusting arms of frenzied women, notices the boy and realizes he is the only one worthy of this oceanic prize; he is the one who can “truly taste.” ... READ MORE

    Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA
    Personally, I like the unevenness of it, because I fell in love with the post World War II, Parisian sights, sounds, food and romance between Julia and Paul. I always felt a bit jarred back into reality when the scenes returned to Julie's meltdowns and cramped kitchen.READ POST

    Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE

    Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE
    Six months into my 38th year of this life, I had my first panic attack. I didn't know that's what it was until months later. Symptom after symptom starting piling up on me until there were days I could no longer move my arms or neck. The doctors told me I was suffering from an auto-immune condition that they felt was most likely Lupus. And so began my much deeper journey and exploration into the world of spirit, alternative medicine, yoga, meditation and Eat, Pray, Love. READ POST

    Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

    Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

    Why don't we pay on a scale?

    A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
    Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
    Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
    A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

    You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
    Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
    Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

    Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

    Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
