Watching them inhabit their characters, interact and circle each other is a lesson in how it’s done. “The Children” is a reminder of how great they all are, and seeing them together is a rare treat not to be missed. We learn quickly – so these are not spoilers – that Hazel (Kelsey), Rose (Robins) and Robin (Yoakam) are retired … [Read more...] about ‘The Children’ at the Jungle; Sweet Honey in the Rock at the Dakota
