In & Of Itself by Derek DelGaudio
Those familiar with Derek DelGaudio’s work as an illusionist might be surprised that this show is that, and so much more.
In itself and in itself takes the viewer into a live recording of one of the meta-magician’s shows. It is here that he explores the illusion of his own identity, only to realize that identity itself is the real illusion.
It’s part magic, part one-man show, part Tony Robbins-esque self-discovery that has to be seen to be truly felt – and understood.

The French Dispatch
If you feel like this latest Wes Anderson film was only in theaters last week, that’s because it was (and in some theaters it still is).
The film revolves around the publisher of a magazine called The French Dispatch (this editor is played by the wonderful Bill Murray). Viewers are taken on a journey through the remarkable stories that make up an issue of the magazine.
It’s in these subplots that we see inside the worlds of a goofy cycling journalist, a tortured artist, and a young revolutionary, among others. It’s filled with quirks, is fast-paced, and a whole lot of fun to watch.
