Jersey Boys was the biggest thing to hit Broadway a couple years ago, and now it's coming to a theater near you! A movie theater that is!
Director Clint Eastwood has brought the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons to the big screen, and it looks just as fun and moving as the musical!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the first trailer for the film adaptation of Jersey Boys!
Looks like James Franco is trying to make amends!!
Since he, ya know, BLASTED the New York Times critic, Ben Brantley, the other day, calling him a "little bitch" because he did not give the show as favorable of a review as James had hoped.
Harsh words, James!!
HOWEVER, the famously hated critic has responded back via the New York Observer and his words show how tough of a skin Ben has got!
It would be easy to dismiss Mothers and Sons as just another AIDS play from Terrence McNally.
But Terrence McNally is not just any other playwright. He is the great American gay playwright. He's the Arthur Miller of queer dramaturgy. He writes important plays about gay life and AIDS.
And his latest is just as important! A reminder of an era that has passed but is still affecting people in many meaningful ways.
The story is about a mother's loss and how she comes to terms - or doesn't - with her son's passing of AIDS.
Like life, Mothers and Sons is at times very funny and at times extremely emotional and sad. And true to life, things don't always end in a happy ending or wrapped up in a neat little bow.
But this play is beautifully written and even more beautifully acted by the great dame that is Tyne Daly.
She gives a tour-de-force performance! Showy but not forced.
And equally beautiful in this production is Bobby Steggert, who plays the husband of the widow that Daly's son in the play left behind. Less theatrical than Daly but just as good, Steggert is so real and believable in the part we oftentimes forgot he was acting. He was being. And being so good and sweet and charming and filled with love and light! He shines!
The same cannot be said of his counterpart, the miscast Frederick Weller. Weller looks way younger than his character is supposed to be, and seemingly to compensate he has a distracting vocal affectation - as if he's trying to age his voice. He is acting way hard. Too hard.
And, rounding out the cast is precocious youngster Grayson Taylor, who is so endearing. Kids always work on Broadway! And so does this play!
Go out and see it! It's nice to see shows besides musicals!
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:
