NME After Print - The magic that is Matilda the Musical

Roald Dahl has been a favorite in our family. His books, full of imagination, had given my family and me great moments of joy. From The BGF to The Twits, his books offer some interesting situations. But it was Matilda that grew to be one of our absolute favorites. The book and the feature film were our go-to for our kids when we needed a break. So, imagine my excitement when I learned Matilda the Musical would be coming to Popejoy Hall. My daughter, Abby, and I walked into the theater to see a colorful show curtain and waited for it to rise. The show was exciting from beginning to end. Jaime MacLean was the perfect choice for Matilda, the girl who didn't let her age limit her. Brandon McGibb

January 2017 - Cover Story: Ralph Macchio

Ralph Macchio: The name, for many, will invoke some childhood memories or, perhaps, some more recent ones. For this writer, waiting for the phone to ring and knowing the Karate Kid would be on the other line was a butterflies-in-the-stomach moment. Macchio, who has a career in the arts spanning three decades, started at 18 when he made his first, on-screen appearance in 1980 in Up The Academy with Robert Downey Jr. and followed up with a recurring role on TV’s Eight is Enough. But Macchio looked further back to talk about where his love of acting came from. “I grew up at a time when my mother would watch ‘The Million Dollar Movie.’ Channel 11 would have these old-time, MGM musicals and movi

January 2017 - Let Us Entertain Us: William Zabka

On a chilly, Friday afternoon, I waited in my office to receive a call from a man that doesn’t like to think of himself as an iconic figure, but, without trying, has become one. William Zabka made a name for himself with his first major film gig as Johnny Lawrence in the memorable film, The Karate Kid. Zabka comes from a family of actors, directors,and producers, so it should be no surprise that the acting bug bit him at an early age. “I remember my dad put me in a documentary when I was like 5, and I remember this one moment when I was in my backyard in Fort Washington, New York, and my father was on top of the roof with a camera….I was doing a scene with a bunch of kids in the neighborhood

January 2017 - Make 'Em Laugh: Keith Breckenridge

In a sea of comedians, Keith Breckenridge is making a big wave in the comedy scene. Breckenridge has found his passion and shared with New Mexico Entertainment why comedy is his calling. What is it about comedy that makes it your passion? Since I was a kid, it’s always been to make people laugh and for THAT night, have fun, leave your cares at the door. Comedy is intimate and personal, with every show being different—even though I have a set, it always changes based on the crowd…[T]hat gives me such a rush—it’s really second to none. Who are your inspirations? Eddie Murphy is my icon, but closely followed by Richard Pryor, Carol Burnett, George Carlin, and Dave Chappelle, What is it like bei

January 2017 - The 5: Marilyn Ghigliotti

You are part of a cult classic. What has being in Clerks and returning for Clerks III meant to you? Being in Clerks and working with a friend and making new friends was a wonderful learning experience with people that were basically in the same boat, and returning to the world [in Clerks III] that has great memories for me in a character I loved portraying is one I highly look forward to. I am a fan of the franchise, as well, and look forward as a fan and the actress to see what has transpired for Veronica and the rest of the characters. You have been in every genre of film. What would you say is your favorite? Thanks for noticing that I have tried to show my versatility as an actress, becau

January 2017 - Behind the Scenes: John Kapelos

You are part of cult classic history. What was your time on the set of The Breakfast Club like? John Hughes hired me after Rick Moranis had been doing the janitor part for a couple of weeks, and they didn’t come eye to eye on how the part should be played. Rick wanted to play the guy with a thick Russian accent with a mouth full of gold teeth and a wad of keys sort of dangling precipitously between his legs that he would pick up and use provocatively. And John said, “You realize the original intent of the character was supposed to be the janitor of the high school he went to—and a native of this area, not some sort of foreigner. My time on The Breakfast Club was very intense. John really had

January 2017 - The Cut: Pete's Frites

As Nob Hill continues to accumulate new brewhouses and bars in the area, I watch to see what new restaurants will take over the vacant buildings down Route 66. When I learned that a burger joint by the name of Pete’s Frites would be taking over the old Shade Tree Customs & Cafe next door to The Guild Cinema, I’ll be honest, I had no idea what a frite was, but I love burgers and was willing to try the latest spot, which, it turns out, was ready to give me crispy fries (frites!) and juicy burgers. Entering the restaurant, I was overcome with the scent of salty goodness, making my mouth water and wondering if I would have enough self-control not to order one of everything, but Pete’s Frites cre
