Michael Mahler, who plays the genial narrative host of the Bailiwick Repertory Theatre's revival of "My Favorite Year," looks like a cross between Matthew Broderick and Billy Crystal. It's the ideal persona for this nebbish-but-normative character, a...
Tribune movie critic"Becket," producer Hal Wallis' opulently entertaining film of Jean Anouilh's play, is the tale of a wild and woolly British king and his God-intoxicated buddy, whom he unwisely appoints archbishop of Canterbury and then must battle. The time is the 1160s,...
