"Irrational Man" is an odd movie title that doesn't make much sense until you've seen the film.

While the title is not one of the more memorable film titles, it makes sense symbolically.

That's because "Irrational Man" writer-director Woody Allen isn't only talking about the protagonist, Abe Lucas (Joaquin Phoenix), a college philosophy professor, but rather the family of man with Abe as the stand-in.

NEW YORK (AP) Camryn Manheim is joining the Deaf West Theatre production of "Spring Awakening" on Broadway.

Producers said Monday that Manheim will play several female roles in the Tony Award-winning rock musical about a dozen young people discovering their sexual identities. The revival is choreographed by Spencer Liff, directed by Michael Arden and will feature a cast of 28 that blends hearing and deaf performers.

Previews begin Sept. 8 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre and will be performed simultaneously in English and American Sign Language. Tickets are now on sale.

Jonny Lang with The Record Company will perform at Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe at 8 p.m. Sept. 27. Sixteen years ago, at the age of 16, Lang found success with the release of his major label debut album "Lie To Me." Fame does not seem to have impacted him from being the same country farm boy from Fargo, North Dakota, who got his start in the local clubs of Minneapolis. He survived the passage of youth to adulthood, fell in love, began a family, and in the process passed through the life lessons we all endure.
