Cohn walking on audience requests

Wednesday, June 5, 2013 by DIANE BAKOS Special to The Press in Focus

You wouldn't expect a Grammy award-winning artist to invite requests from the audience during his concerts, but singer-songwriter Marc Cohn says he thrives on that kind exchange of energy.

Which means the Musikfest Café in Bethlehem should be ideal for his concert there, 8 p.m. June 7, since few sit more than about 60 feet from the stage.

"I usually prefer small theaters, or any place where the audience is partly visible and right up close," says Cohn. "It makes for a much more personal, intimate show. I like knowing who's out there."

An 'Epic' disappointment

Wednesday, June 5, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

The animated family feature movie,"Epic," is beautiful, especially in the 3D format in which it was seen for this review.

Unfortunately, "Epic" lacks a cohesive storyline, the clever dialogue we've grown accustomed to in animated features and memorable animated characters.

That's not good. The art form is, after all, about character animation.

Moreover, the concept for "Epic" is ill-conceived.
