This Week's RFT, March 19-25


It's Thursday. And you know what that means? You guessed it -- this week's Riverfront Times is on newsstands now. Below is a quick rundown of just a few of the stories you won't want to miss.

In the "News Dept." writer Nicholas Phillips explains why some rival agencies complain that casting company TalentPlus is hogging auditions for the George Clooney movie, Up in the Air.

Trust me, you're not going to want to miss our feature presentation, "Vanishing Act," the first of a gripping two-parter by Kristen Hinman about the disapperance of young Christian Ferguson and how, six years later, it remains a mystery.

Don't stop there. RFT theater critic Dennis Brown reviews a must-see offering from the New Jewish Theatre, while our food expert Ian Froeb muses about the fascinating cuisine at a relatively new Thai eatery in Chesterfield.

And, of course, for some lusty entertainment, make it point to read the advice Dan Savage gives to a guy whose woman wants him to enact a date-rape encounter. Ahh, the things we do for love.
