ShareThis

Hear that? Enjoy it while it lasts. It’s the gentle excitement over spring’s new sitcoms, Broadway shows, and reasonably budgeted movies that’ll soon be drowned out by noisy hype for summer’s blockbusters—like the superhero-filled Marvel’s The Avengers, which kicks off the season early on May 4.
