On Sunday night at the Painted Bride Art Center, tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano proved that comfort level is the difference between high-concept and gimmickry. Playing selections from the self-explanatory Viva Caruso, Lovano's quirky Street Band, which closed the Mellon Jazz Festival, never once forced the issue. In the truest spirit of improvisation, the group used Enrico Caruso-related selections as the jumping-off point for variations, creating not only unexpected solos but also an ensemble sound that responded to the demands of the moment.

A Montgomery County judge on Monday rejected state Attorney General Kathleen Kane's bid to have the criminal case against her dismissed on the ground that she was the victim of selective and "vindictive" prosecution. Judge Wendy Demchick-Alloy said Kane's lawyers had not conformed to proper procedure in filing their motion for dismissal last month. The judge did not offer an opinion on the merits of Kane's assertions but gave her a chance to file an amended motion within 10 days. Kane is facing trial in Montgomery County Court on perjury and other charges.

A Bigger Splash Tilda Swinton is a rock star in retreat on a Mediterranean isle, Matthias Schoenaerts her lover. Then along comes the impossibly exuberant Ralph Fiennes, playing an old flame and bringing his nymphet American daughter (Dakota Johnson) along. A remake of the slow-burning 1969 French thriller La Piscine , this tale of love and jealousy, obsession and seduction takes its time getting where it's going, but who cares, it's gorgeous. R Green Room Jeremy Saulnier's hard-as-nails follow-up to his thrilling revenge indie Blue Ruin takes place in a middle-of-nowhere music venue in the wet gray of the Pacific Northwest, where a ragtag punk band do a gig, and then get held hostage after one of the members sees something he shouldn't have.

I'm just not sure whether it was a smart or necessary one. Six of the Eagles' draft picks were in the bottom 101 selections.

In Zina Robbins-Maldonado's University City bedroom there are three shelves above a sofa next to her bed. The shelves are full of pictures of the senior with her teammates, trophies, sportsmanship awards for being an "amateur basketball player," and "field hockey stuff," as the Friends Select three-sport athlete put it. And then there are the softballs. It started as a way for Falcons coach Bill Klose to draw attention to the accomplishments of former player Grace Finkbiner, who graduated in 2012, setting several school records along the way. The tradition grew from there as the team became more successful.

CHICAGO - At 8:22 p.m. Philadelphia time, Carson Wentz went onto the stage at the Auditorium Theater with an Eagles cap on his head and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell waiting with a green Eagles jersey in his hands. After a week of speculation and public debate, the Eagles landed the coveted North Dakota State quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL draft. "Happy to be an Eagle," he said on the stage. Unlike the last time the Eagles picked a quarterback in that spot, there was no booing from the Eagles fans in the crowd.
