Far From Heaven: The Musical!

far-from-heaven-to-be-adapted-into-musical

We never considered that this could make the jump to musical theater, but we're excited that it is!

Far From Heaven, the 2002 film starring Julianne Moore as a 1950s housewife who discovers that her husband is gay, is being adapted into a musical, and is set to hit the stage later this year!

Tony Award winner and two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Richard Greenberg is reportedly collaborating with Scott Frankel and Michael Korie on the adaptation.

Holy shiz!

We thought that the Todd Haynes film was absolutely stunning, and so we're thrilled to hear that such acclaimed writers are handling its transition to the stage!

We're very excited to see what they have in store!

What do U think?? Are U excited for a Far From Heaven musical??

Frances McDormand Is Going Back To Broadway!

Oh! We love her!

Frances McDormand is heading back to Broadway for the world premiere production of Good People, a new play by Pulitzer Prize winning David Lindsay-Abaire and directed by Daniel Sullivan!

According to a synopsis:

"Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo… where this month's paycheck covers last month's bills… and where Margie Walsh (McDormand) has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who has made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out."

It's set to premiere the following February!

Sounds great! We definitely want to check it out!

Thoughts??

Whomp-whomp, National Enquirer! Better luck next homewrecker!

One of this year's recipients of the Pulitzer Prize is iconic country western singer, Hank Williams. The late star receives the award posthumously, but will be given a special citation from the organization to recognize his "craftsmanship as a songwriter" and his "pivotal role in transforming country music into a major musical and cultural force".

Congrats, Hank! Well deserved!

What an unbelievable honor!

The 2010 Pulitzer Prize for drama has been awarded to the Tony Award-winning musical Next To Normal!

Apparently, the board that awards the Pulitzers overruled three other jury recommendations for the award in order to honor the show, which chronicles a woman's struggle with mental illness and featured actress Alice Ripley as the lead!

Congratulations to everyone involved!
