Broadway Escapes From Escapism, Just in Time
AND now lets take a walk down the shaded side of the street. Be honest. Arent you starting to overdose on escapism? Havent you been experiencing cravings that Mamma Mia! and vicarious trips down the red carpet just arent satisfying?

Cub Comes of Age: A Twice-Told Cosmic Tale
Suddenly, youre 4 years old again, and youve been taken to the circus for the first time. You can only marvel at the exotic procession of animals before you: the giraffes and the elephants and the hippopotamuses and all those birds in balletic flight. Moreover, these are not the weary-looking beasts in plumes and spangles that usually plod their way through urban circuses but what might be described as their Platonic equivalents, creatures of air and light and even a touch of divinity. Where are you, really, anyway? The location is supposed to be a theater on 42d Street, a thoroughfare that has never been thought of as a gateway to Eden. Yet somehow you have fallen into what appears to be a primal paradise. And even the exquisitely restored New Amsterdam Theater, a former Ziegfeld palace, disappears before the spectacle within it..

King of the Hill; A Boy of the 30s With Grit and Wit
WHEN present-day movies try to recreate the Depression, they tend to concentrate on period details: old cars, quaint costumes, dusty rugs on boarding-house floors. King of the Hill, the new film by Steven Soderbergh, which has been adapted from A. E. Hotchners boyhood memoir, captures something more basic: the way it felt to have that rug pulled out from underneath one without warning, and the recognition that most of ones acquaintances were trapped in similar situations. With warmth, wit and none of the usual overlay of nostalgia, King of the Hill presents the scary yet liberating precariousness of life on the edge. There is a point in the film at which Aaron Kurlander (Jesse Bradford), the storys 12-year-old hero, is so hungry he cuts out magazine pictures of food, arranges them on a plate and digs in. In another film such a moment might be milked for either humor or pathos. But Mr. Soderbergh, as a film maker who keenly appreciates the idiosyncrasies of any situation, has a way of defying the usual expectations, and he turns that image into something surprisingly buoyant. King of the Hill bears no substantial resemblance to either Mr. Soderberghs Sex, Lies and Videotape or his impenetrable Kafka, but it does reaffirm the iconoclasm of both those earlier works.
