Well hellooo! Again!
One of our favorite movies Mrs. Doubtfire is getting a sequel! We can hardly believe it!
This Oscar-winning actress is about to spit mad fire on the big screen—in the most unlikely of movies!
Meryl Streep TOTALLY learned to rap for Rob Marshall’s upcoming film adaption of Stephen Sondheim’s musical Into the Woods—and we couldn't be more excited!
In a recent interview, Meryl's co-star James Corden spilled the rapping beans, revealing the star's new rhyming prowess has only helped her impeccable enunciation abilities!
Maybe that's why 50 and the actress were so friendly at that Lakers game in January!
Can anyone say LESSONS?!?!?
Everything makes so much sense now—and we can't wait for Meryl to slay the rap game on film!
The cast of Broadway's Aladdin performed live for Good Morning America, and holy crap! Do we have to ess the Sultan's dee to get tickets to this? Because we will!
In a beautifully choreographed song and dance, the cast brings down the
house palace with the tune Arabian Nights! This touched nothing but our lamp heart!
Ch-ch-check out the show-stopping opening number of the musical (above)!!!
Simon recently produced a musical on London's West End called I Can't Sing, a spoof of X Factor, that is getting some pretty exciting reviews.
According to inside sources, the show's producers are in talks with multiple theaters to bring Sing to the Great White Way!
But there are a couple obstacles. First, the show is an obvious send-up of the judges on X Factor UK! For it to work on Broadway, the script would have to be adapted to reflect the judges American audiences have grown to love.
The second roadbump is a bit taller- and more personal! It seems some of the spoofing hit a little too close to home for some of the judges! The source says:
We have seen more musicals than we can count and never before have we seen a standing ovation DURING a show… until Aladdin!
Disney's new Broadway musical is lucky enough to have such a literal showstopping number in Friend Like Me.
Aladdin has everything you want in a big Broadway musical - great songs, fabulous voices, stellar acting, amazing production value, huge sets, lavish costumes, dazzling dance numbers and MORE!
The show's secret weapon, though, is it's book and direction.
The book, by Chad Beguelin, is so LOL! Literally LAUGH OUT LOUD funny - from start to finish!
And the direction - as well as choreography - by Casey Nicholaw is so inventive! You just marvel at all the creativity on stage and you could tell he and his collaborators had so much fun making this show and trying to impress the audience!
They nailed the flying rug and so much more!
Disney learned from their recent misstep on Broadway that was The Little Mermaid and have delivered a mega satisfying hit with Aladdin!
It's great for the kids AND the adults! And the gays too! The show is super gay! Super camp! Super fabulous!
The performances are all wonderful! Jonathan Freeman, who voices Jafar in the film, plays the same part in this live production! How cool is THAT????
And extra kudos to James Monroe Iglehart - as the Genie - for fleshing out a wholly new interpretation and not just recreating what Robin Williams did in the film!
We also loved seeing such a colorful and multi-cultural cast on stage!
Everything about Aladdin is a win win WIN!
James Franco has made some pretty frank admissions lately!
First he admits to creepily hitting on a 17-year-old via Instagram, and now he admits that he's a fearless treader of the boards!
Okay, well, these are two very different sort of admissions, but still!
In a recent interview, James made it clear that when the curtain goes up on Of Mice And Men on April 16th, he'll be more ready than ever:
Neil Patrick Harris is currently in previews on Broadway, playing the lead in Hedwig And The Angry Inch.
It's supposed to be incredibly entertaining, at times heartbreaking and mostly hysterically funny.
One very seksi, very preggo pretty momma, Olivia Wilde, corroborated those claims!
She went to see Hedwig and she absolutely
We LOVE the theater!
This production of the Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht musical features some MAJOR Broadway talent in an intimate off-Broadway house. The perfect setting to soak in this incredible score!
From the very get-go this production puts the emphasis on the music - and the orchestra on stage. The songs are so beautifully orchestrated and played so beautifully! With all those period instruments! Who doesn't love some accordion music?????
Major kudos to music coordinator Michael Aarons, conductor Fred Lassen and every member of that topnotch
The performances were fabulous - most especially the women! Laura Osnes' voice is unreal! Mary Beth Peil is a legend! And Sally Murphy was a revelation and instant new fave!!
The original production of The Threepenny Opera premiered in 1928!!!!!! It feels more like a play with songs than a musical. And it was really interesting to see how this show influenced later vehicles, like Cabaret and Sweeney Todd.
The Threepenny Opera is dark, sexy and this production is a definite must-see!!
