Heathers the TV show may have never worked out, but this could be the next best thing!
Well, the next best thing would be a leaked Winona Ryder & Christian Slater sex tape from 1989, but this is the second next best thing!
Start spreading the news, Heathers fans, because Heathers: The Musical is coming to New York!
The dark, cult comedy about teen suicide is hitting Off Broadway’s New World Stages next March!
Curious what the greatest high school movie of all time (with apologies to Clueless and Mean Girls) might look like on stage?
Take a look at the Dead Gay Son number from a previous version of the musical…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Ms. Fine is making her way to Broadway, y'all!!
Fran Drescher will be making her Broadway debut in Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella next February!
The Nanny star is cast in the show as Cinderella's stepmother, Madame.
This will definitely be a different side to the comedienne! We're so used to seeing her as a funny, upbeat woman with a HIGHlarious laugh!
But this show isn't your normal Disney classic! This version of Cinderella is slightly more modern
After the HUGE success of The Sound Of Music LIVE, NBC is ready to jump right back into the world of musical theatre!
According to NBC entertainment division Chairman Robert Greenblatt, the network is already making plans to bring back producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan for another live version of a Broadway classic!
And it sounds like they'll have their pick of the litter! Robert says:
Hey Upper Eastsiders! Listen up!
It's no longer gossip, gurl! Leighton Meester's going to the Great White Way!
Leighton will be treading the boards with James Franco in the Broadway production of Of Mice and Men, which will be the big B'way debut for the both of them!
Aw, they're each others' firsts! Way to pop your Broadway cherries together, you guys!
Although don't be looking for too much onstage action between the two, because Leighton's character, Curley Wife, will be flirting it up with the simple-minded Lennie, played by Girls' Chris O'Dowd!
We bet that after hearing Leighton was cast James TOTALLY asked Chris to switch parts with him! For his love Leighton, uh…rabbits, of course!
What's It All About? could not be a more fitting question and title for the new Burt Bacharach show at the New York Theater Workshop.
Not quite a musical. Not really a concert. The production features wonderful arrangements of Bacharach songs by Kyle Riabko, a very talented and magnetic young actor/musician who also stars in the show. And the songs are brilliantly staged by director Steven Hoggett. It's all rather enjoyable but also very disappointing.
There is no plot. No dialogue or story. No takeaway (sorta).
It was rather obvious to us that the one recurring theme of Bacharach's timeless and iconic music is love. There could have been a very powerful story to tell here. Or several!
The show, as it is, also just doesn't make sense in a theater setting. It would work much better at a cabaret space or a concert venue. Let people booze it up, stand and jam out with the awesome musicians.
However, there is a real opportunity here to add a story - or stories - and turn this show into something truly special.
The potential is clearly there!
We've heard what just about everyone thinks about The Sound Of Music LIVE - everyone except Sister Maria herself that is!
So what does Carrie Underwood think of the live show?
Mostly that it was a massive undertaking! She tweeted:
Uh oh! Maybe they SHOULD have given them what they wanted!
Last night's broadcast of the Sound of Music LIVE was met with mixed reviews, Carrie Underwood's vocals were AH-MAZE but her acting was…not. (Just take a look at the live tweets from last night!)
However, it's coming to light that the original von Trapp family was NOT on board with Carrie's casting as Maria! In fact they wanted someone COMPLETELY different to play the role!
According to Myles von Trapp Derbyshire, who is the great grandson of the OG Maria von Trapp, the family wanted none other than Miz Anne Hathaway to play the role!
