Olivia Newton-John

MAGIC! One of many words to describe Olivia Newton-John's standing room only performance April 7 at the Grand Event Center inside the Golden Nugget in Lake Charles.

Though many know her for her role as Sandy Olsson alongside John Travolta in the 1978 iconic musical-film Grease, Olivia had a string of seven No. 1 songs before she ever stepped foot on the movie set including "Please Mr. Please" and "I Honestly Love You," which she ended the 21-song set with.

‘The Boss Baby’

Starring: Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi

Directed by: Tom McGrath

Rated: PG

There is something inherently funny about a baby dressed in a suit and carrying a briefcase, especially if the baby has the voice of Alec Baldwin. From the animation team at DreamWorks comes this clever and creative animated movie with a thoughtful premise.
