Perez Reviews: Bullets Over Broadway

Bullets Over Broadway is a fine show. Unfortunately, fine isn't good enough for a Tony nomination for Best Musical nor is it likely to help sustain a long run.

The new stage adaptation of Woody Allen's film is firing blanks.

The show was poised to be a big smash of the current season, with an all-star cast lead by Zach Braff and spearheaded by an all-star director, Susan Stroman.

While Stroman's last Broadway musical, Big Fish, was spectacular and filled with wonder, awe, imagination and playfulness - Bullets Over Broadway is "by the book".

Harmless. Inoffensive. Not a bad time. But not a great time.

It's all been done before. Mobsters. Self-reflection. Etc. Etc.

A lot of the blame lies on the material. The songs chosen are little-known jazz standards from the early 20th century. If they're "little-known", that should tell you something about the quality of the tunes!

The show's other big weakness is that not every movie works on the stage. Allen's characters from the film don't hold up well when having the spotlight on them and amplified on Broadway.

They aren't characters as much as they are caricatures.

There's Braff doing Woody. There's a girl doing a Cyndi Lauper impression. There's all these fine actors giving fine performances, but it's hard to relate to any of them because these characters are drawn so superficially.

There are, however, two standout performances.

Once again, Betsy Wolfe proves she is one of the top leading ladies on Broadway! Not only does she have one of the best voices, but she is also such a superb actress! She infuses the show with so much heart and humanity, something it's sorely lacking.

And the other standout Nick Cordero, who turns his one-dimensional role into a fully-fleshed and fantastic portrayal!

Celebrities Accused Of Sexual Misconduct!

Stars just can't seem to behave these days!

Woody Allen, Terry Richardson, and producer Bryan Singer are all currently facing major heat under the spotlight thanks to accusations of sexual misconduct, but they aren't the first ones!

In 2010, Britney Spears' bodyguard sued her for supposed sexual harassment.

YUP. OUR Brit Brit!

Thank goodness accusations were settled outside of court and she was able to move on.

However, we're not so sure Woody, Terry, and Bryan will make such an easy recovery…

Woody Allen Is Happy Alec Baldwin Got Arrested?? What He's Revealed Might Prove That To Be True!

Woody Allen and Alec Baldwin

Hmm. If ever there was someone who should keep his mouth shut right now…

Director Woody Allen attended a retirement party for outgoing View host Barbara Walters in New York when he ran into Alec Baldwin.

When Mr. Baldwin isn’t busy being arrested by the NYPD, he has been seen in several of Woody's movies, including last year’s critically-acclaimed flick Blue Jasmine.

But it wasn’t the movie biz that these two talked about when they met up. Instead, Woody told Alec that his biggest pet peeve is cyclists riding the wrong way on the streets of NYC!

AB shared on Twitter just how the interaction went down:

Emma Stoneis back working with Woody Allen after having recently completed their most recent project Magic in the Moonlight.

And while a lot of people might not want to work with the fabled director due to rehashed allegations of child molestation being turned up, Emma seems unfazed to work with him again.

She'll be joining Joaquin Phoenix! It's awesome that he's Her co-worker.

While we're always excited to see Emma in anything she ever does, we wonder if it's a good idea to associate herself with someone so controversial as Woody. We'll see how this new unnamed project develops in the meantime.
