Thu, 16 Nov 2017 20:00:18 -0500

“Marian,” a documentary about Marian Seldes that upset many theater people because it shows the actress in the grip of dementia, will be screened on Saturday as part of the Williamsburg Independent Film Festival.

Jerry Zaks is back where he belongs: on Broadway, where no fewer than three of his shows — “Hello, Dolly!”, “A Bronx Tale” and Steve Martin’s “Meteor Shower” — are on the boards. “That I’ve got three shows running in New York at the same time is very sweet,” the 71-year-old director tells The Post...

Call it the battle of those dancing feet: Two acclaimed productions of “42nd Street” may soon go tap-to-tap for a shot at Broadway.

Like one of the characters in her off-Broadway play, “Stuffed,” Lisa Lampanelli jokes that during her dieting days — all three decades of them — she lost and regained some 300 pounds: “that’s 17 Sarah Jessica Parkers!” But as the comedian tells The Post, “My food issues aren’t the same as everyone else’s.” And so...

“Wikipedia is wrong!” Lucy DeVito says. “I was born in Los Angeles, not New York, but my parents and I would come here a lot, so I feel like a New Yorker.” The oldest of Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman’s three children finally made it official 10 years ago, when she moved here. Now 34,...

Jimmy Buffett says he was going to be on Broadway one way or another because of his mother. “She was the Southern version of Auntie Mame,” Buffett says, “and she made me audition for ‘South Pacific’ in Mobile, [Ala.,] because she was playing Bloody Mary, and I was supposed to be Emile de Becque’s son....

John joined the cast onstage after the show to sing his hit song “Circle of Life,” which he co-wrote for the 1994 Disney movie. Simba would surely approve.

Tonys, Shmonys: Your musical’s only as good as your kid says it is. Luckily, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s son just gave “Hamilton” a big (little) thumbs up. From his perch atop two booster seats, Sebastian Miranda, who turns 3 on Nov. 10, took in Act 1 of his father’s show on Saturday. As he watched the stage,...

Once, sometimes twice a day, says Mercedes Ruehl, she’s “the most unloved woman in New York.” It happens during “Torch Song,” when her character, Mrs. Beckoff, tells her gay son she wishes he’d never been born. “At every show, there’s a gasp from the audience,” she says. “I think, ‘Oh, I hope no one has...
