February 2017 - Cover Story: A Conversation with C. Thomas Howell

Throughout his 40-year history in the entertainment industry, C. Thomas Howell has created many memorable characters, but during this interview, NME discovered that at least one character may have caused him regret. As I prepared for Howell’s appearance at Albuquerque Comic Con in January, I was excited to talk to him about one film I look back at fondly, unaware of its surrounding controversy, Soul Man. But before we entered that topic, we started with how he began in the business. Howell didn’t plan to have a career in acting.

February 2017 - Let Us Entertain You: Motown The Musical

The musical genius of Motown is taking the Popejoy stage in Motown the Musical on February 28 through March 5.
