James Corden is odds-on favorite to host the TonysThe 70th Annual Tony Awards

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 20:01:06 -0500

CBS is wasting no time lining up a host for this year’s Tony Awards. I hear the offer is out to James Corden, who hosted the telecast to great acclaim in 2016. Sources say the host of “The Late Late Show With James Corden” is likely to accept. The network scrambled to land a host...

Why Broadway’s SpongeBob gave up pizza and boozeSPONGEBOB

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 17:48:18 -0500

The star of “SpongeBob SquarePants” knows his sponges, in the kitchen and onstage. Just so happens that offstage, he swears by Scrub Daddy. And before Nickelodeon flips out over that unauthorized endorsement, please note that it’s Ethan Slater — Broadway’s SpongeBob — who’s doing the endorsing. “Scrub Daddy was on ‘Shark Tank,’” he tells The...

New ‘Dolly!’ star once played a flying monkey

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 17:37:58 -0500

Just five nights ago, Charlie Stemp was in London, taking his final bow in the holiday pantomime “Dick Whittington” at the Palladium next to West End royalty Elaine Paige. After the curtain fell at 9 p.m., the 24-year-old British charmer raced home, packed his life away and boarded a flight to New York. He was...

‘Pretty Woman’ hooker gets a feminist twist on BroadwayPRETTY WOMAN, Richard Gere, Julia Roberts, 1990.

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 19:37:18 -0500

Even in 2016, Garry Marshall knew that what worked for his 1990 hit film “Pretty Woman” wouldn’t work in a musical. Times had changed, and Vivian and Edward — the characters played by Julia Roberts and Richard Gere — would have to change, too: No longer could a hooker with a heart of gold be...

Can Bryan Cranston be lured back to Broadway for ‘Network’?a_scene_from_network_left_and_onescreen_bryan_cranston._ima.jpg

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 19:18:15 -0500

Bryan Cranston is winning raves as wild-eyed anchorman Howard Beale in the stage adaptation of “Network” at London’s National Theatre. The “Breaking Bad” star was a major box-office draw in Broadway’s 2014 “All the Way,” so it’s no surprise that plans are afoot to bring “Network” to New York. But Cranston may need a little...

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 16:23:09 -0500

When Broadway’s “Jersey Boys” closed up shop last January after a nearly 12-year run, fans were thrilled to hear it would soon return — off-Broadway. But with a smaller stage and budget, would we be getting Frankie Valli and the Three Seasons? Happily, that’s not the case. All four Seasons are present and accounted for...

The last time Sandra Bernhard partied on New Year’s Eve was more than a decade ago, in Palm Springs, Calif., and the experience was “just dreadful,” she says. “New Year’s Eve is not a fun night, unless you’re doing what I do and gather people together,” says the 62-year-old, who started a party of her...

How these giants we lost in 2017 made their mark in theaterRiedel_Main_Trio1a

Tue, 26 Dec 2017 19:09:07 -0500

Let’s salute a few showbiz folks who took their final bows this year. Several were Broadway fixtures, while others found fame on TV or in Hollywood but couldn’t resist the lure of the stage. Mary Tyler Moore, who died in January, had a scarring experience in the 1966 musical “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” which closed before...

No one suffered more for their art than the castrati, the men whose heavenly high voices cost them part of their manhood. Among the most famous of their ranks was the 18th-century Italian known as Farinelli, the Pavarotti of his day. So enthralled was Queen Isabella with his voice that she took him home to...

Broadway musicals are getting more expensive every season, but there’s still plenty of money to be made on a shoestring budget. One of the biggest hits so far this season is “The Band’s Visit,” which cost about $6 million. That’s peanuts — or bananas — compared with the $35 million being spent on “King Kong,”...

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus packed up for good this year — but P.T. Barnum is still the toast of the town, thanks largely to Hugh Jackman. You can’t turn on the TV without seeing him and co-stars Zac Efron and Michelle Williams swinging from a trapeze in “The Greatest Showman,” starring...
