Broadway’s two best performances can’t win Tonysgclosejgyllenhaalsplit_riedel

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 17:07:05 -0500

The two performances Broadway’s raving about — Glenn Close in “Sunset Boulevard” and Jake Gyllenhaal in “Sunday in the Park With George” — are ineligible for Tony Awards. For Close, it’s the rule. For Gyllenhaal, it’s the money. Close won the Tony in the role of faded movie queen Norma Desmond in 1995, and therefore...

A new play’s cast has some harsh words for Michael Riedel"The Play That Goes Wrong" Theatre Marquee Installation

My column last week about the nonmusical plays struggling at the box office prompted all sorts of emails and calls from producers imploring me to give them a chance. Nobody likes to come out of the gate a dud. “Our numbers are growing — word of mouth is great!” one producer said. “We’ll be just...

Where ‘American Idol’ Justin Guarini likes to skate and get his hair done2016 Tony Awards - Red Carpet

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 21:00:13 -0500

He was born in Georgia and lives in Pennsylvania, but Justin Guarini’s spiritual home is Broadway. “I was probably 11 when I saw ‘Les Miz,’ ” the first “American Idol” runner-up tells BARBARA HOFFMAN. “I remember being so blown away, I wanted to get into that genre!” He did. After “A.I.,” he played five Broadway shows,...

Stockholm syndrome is big on Broadway and at the moviesglenn-close-as-norma-desmond-in-sunset-boulevard-photo-by-joan-marcus

You can’t escape this winter’s hottest entertainment trend. But it’s not ornate British costume dramas or midseason lawyer procedurals. It’s neither biopics nor boffo comic-book capers. The buzzy movies and shows hoping to put butts in seats right now are, weirdly, stories about Stockholm syndrome. Yes, the psychological state that causes hostages to eventually feel...

New plays on Broadway are already in dangersignificant_other

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 19:15:27 -0500

There are plenty of nonmusical plays coming to Broadway this spring, but producers are fretting that few of them are selling. Three of those plays — “Sweat,” “Indecent” and “Significant Other” — moved to Broadway because of strong reviews from former New York Times critic Charles Isherwood. But he and the paper have since parted...

Jake Gyllenhaal is sharing a bathroom on Broadwayjake

No matter how big you are in Hollywood, you don’t get a trailer when you play Broadway. Heck, you’re lucky if you have your own bathroom. Ask Jake Gyllenhaal. He and his “Sunday in the Park With George” co-star Annaleigh Ashford are sharing one at the newly reopened Hudson Theatre on 44th Street. “For her,...

Disappointed Josh Groban fans are sobbing on BroadwayJosh Groban

If you want to see 1,000 women burst into tears, hand them a piece of paper that says, “We regret to inform you that Josh Groban is unable to appear in today’s performance of ‘The Great Comet.’” That’s what happened this weekend at the Imperial Theatre, where “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812”...

‘1984’ is popular again, and coming to Broadway1984 (16)-82.jpg

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 18:38:07 -0500

I have no idea why, but in this era of Make America Great Again, sales of George Orwell’s “1984” have skyrocketed. The book, first published in 1949, is topping best-seller lists at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Publisher’s Weekly and USA Today. More than 50,000 print copies have been sold since Election Day. A couple of...

Whether stealing the show from under Richard Burton’s nose or entertaining at home with his pet mountain lion, George Rose always seemed bigger than life. Perhaps the only thing more sensational than the “My Fair Lady” star’s life was his death: In 1988, near his vacation home in the Caribbean, he was mortally beaten by...
