L

“It’s the year of the woman so we wanted to do something for the ladies,” Carnel “Mr. C” Coyle explains of the inspiration for bringing together four of the top female talents in comedy to Columbus for a special one-night show Saturday at the Springer Springer Opera. “Single in the City” draws from concept developed by headliner Kiana Dancie, the TV/YouTube star best known for her hilarious takes...

Lights, Camera, Action

Guests to the Springer Film Institute’s open house tonight can be forgiven if they think they stumbled upon a working film set. That’s by design, according to SFI Director Sarah Lynn Herman, who says the open house, to be held 5:30-7 p.m., free and open to everyone, will be a showcase of what is possible when taking one of many workshops offered at the institute, which launched in February...
