Thu, 19 Oct 2017 18:57:54 -0400

The biggest star in Lincoln Center’s upcoming revival of “My Fair Lady” isn’t playing Eliza Doolittle or Henry Higgins: She’s playing Mrs. Higgins, Henry’s elegant mother.

A dozen years ago, when Oz Pearlman worked in information technology for Merrill Lynch, he supplemented his Wall Street wages by doing magic tricks. Watching Pearlman turn five $1 bills into five $100 bills at a corporate event made then-chief financial officer James Gorman’s jaw drop. “What the hell are you doing working here, mate?”...

“The Cher Show” is rehearsing here in New York at the New 42nd Street Studios, but somebody key to the entire enterprise is missing: Cher. She can’t be here because she’s in London and Croatia filming the sequel to “Mamma Mia!” Cher recently tweeted that she joined the cast but didn’t say what part she’s...

To the exalted roster of artists who’ve sang their hearts out at Carnegie Hall — Leonard Bernstein, the Beatles — add Bill Murray. Decades after he crooned “Star Wars” on “SNL”, the 67-year-old lounge lizard will make his Carnegie singing debut Monday night at 8. He won’t be alone: Three classically trained musicians will play...

Springsteen’s Broadway debut is bringing audiences to tears

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 20:00:02 -0400

When legendary record producer and talent scout John Hammond signed Bruce Springsteen in 1972, the scraggly Jersey kid was envisioned as a lyrically intricate singer-songwriter, who might be New Jersey’s answer to Bob Dylan. Now, after 45 years of tearing up stages all over the world with the E Street Band, the Boss has returned...

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 19:31:45 -0400

Tickets for “Mean Girls” went on sale last week at the August Wilson Theatre, and Tina Fey was there to hand out cheese fries. The p.r. stunt was, well, cheesy — but effective. Inspired by one character’s all-carb diet, the show gave away nearly 3,000 free cheese fries — I hear they fetched $5 a...

Harvey Weinstein was at Gwyneth Paltrow’s townhouse last year when she unveiled “Head Over Heels,” the musical she’s producing about the 1980s girl band the Go-Gos. Weinstein, sources say, wanted to invest in the musical and was “holding court” at the backers’ audition. “It’s her show, but he was all over it, like he was...

Sometimes it’s hard to let it go. That’s what Idina Menzel’s younger sister learned while growing up in the shadow of the future “Frozen” star — the Anna to her Elsa. As Cara Mentzel writes in “Voice Lessons: A Sisters Story” (St. Martin’s Press, out now), the three-years-older sibling she calls Dee (or Dina) was...

The Playbill for “Springsteen on Broadway” reads “Written and Directed by Bruce Springsteen” — which means the Boss could be eligible for Tony Awards for both Best Book and Best Direction of a Musical. The problem is, where is he going to find some 1,600 free tickets for Tony voters and their dates for a...

The buzz around the revival of Harvey Fierstein’s “Torch Song” at Second Stage Theater is so good, there’s talk of a move to Broadway in the spring. But don’t tell Fierstein. “Stop!” he says when I bring up rumors of a transfer. “I’ve got enough trouble with the ‘what nows’ without starting on the ‘what...

Throwing a play onto the big screen is always risky. It can be the best choice a studio ever makes (“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”) or the absolute worst (“August: Osage County”). Even when plays ride into Hollywood on waves of critical acclaim and box-office magic, their cinematic sisters can still flop big time. Viewers...

Sweet ‘Downton’ mom turns ‘Mommie Dearest’ on stage

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 16:33:42 -0400

Elizabeth McGovern spent six years playing the ideal mother — the warm, wise and nurturing Lady Cora of “Downton Abbey.” Clearly, she was ready for a change, and now she’s found one. As the matriarch in Broadway’s “Time and the Conways,” opening Oct. 10, McGovern gives us the “anti-Cora”: a childish, narcissistic British matriarch who,...

July 3, 2015, was a heartbreaking day for many people who work in the theater. That afternoon, they received an email from Rick Elice, the Tony-nominated co-writer of “Jersey Boys,” letting them know that his partner of 33 years, Roger Rees, had glioblastoma — “a very s–tty brain cancer,” as Elice put it. “He’s been...

She’s sung her way through six beauty pageants. Now Angel Blue, 2005’s Miss Hollywood, is ready for prime time: She’ll make her Met Opera debut Monday in “La Bohème.” Visually speaking, the role of poor, consumptive little Mimi is a stretch for this soprano, who’s a statuesque 5-foot-11. Luckily, her onstage lover stands about 2...
