Colonial Theatre Hosting Sneak Preview of The Best and the Brightest Tommorow

Be the first to see the new Neil Patrick Harris comedy before its summer release! There will be a Q&A with cast members and filmmakers after the movie.

A cast to die for, an unpredictable plot full of twists, and a nothing-held-back sense of silly, yet intelligent sense of humor — these are just some of the things that make The Best and the Brightest live up to its name. Josh Shelov directs one of the edgiest comedies ever to touch on the rearing of children, featuring Neil Patrick Harris and Bonnie Somerville as a newly-transplanted New York yuppie couple trying in vain to enroll their little girl into an absurdly elitist private kindergarten. After they hire eccentric placement consultant Amy Sedaris(!), a most outlandish “Three’s Company”-meets-the-Farrelly Brothers chain of events tumbles into place. To say any more would be to ruin the film’s many surprises, but get stoked for savage swipes at class struggle, as well as some of the most hilarious filthy “poetry” on record. British sensation Peter Serafinowicz, John Hodgman and an outrageously sleazy Christopher McDonald also star in the fiercest farce so far this year!

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
