For two years, the crew of the USS Jeannette was trapped in ice north of the Bering Sea. The sailors staged musicals, played football, ate seal meat (which they dubbed "arctic turkey") and even performed surgery on the eye of a crew member afflicted with syphilis. Then, in June 1881, the real adventure began: The Jeannette sank. The men loaded their provisions onto dog sleds and began the trek to Siberia, some 1,000 miles away. Journalist Hampton Sides tells the story of the Jeannette's star-crossed expedition in his latest book, "In the Kingdom of Ice. " Sides spent more than three years poring over thousands of pages of records kept by the ship's captain, letters, diary entries and testimony from the 13 men who survived the brutal journey.

It may have started out as a cartoon, but it's coming in on giant cats' paws and not with a whimper, but a roar. When The Lion King begins its 14-week run at the Hippodrome Theatre on Thursday, it will launch the longest engagement of any touring show in Baltimore history. And though we've been inundated over the years with Lion King books, CDs, stuffed animals, T-shirts, watches, snow globes and baseball caps, there's still plenty of magic in the show's mid-Atlantic premiere. Adapted from Disney's 1994 animated film, the Tony Award-winning musical tells the story of Simba, the cub who flees the kingdom of the Pridelands after his father's death.
