Mel Brooks is bringing the ‘Young Frankenstein’ musical back from the deadmel

I can tell you what Mel Brooks is doing for Halloween: re-animating his Broadway musical “Young Frankenstein.” Brooks, along with co-writer Tom Meehan and director Susan Stroman, has taken a bone saw to the 2007 show, paring it down to a brisk two hours. “I cut that lousy opening number!” Brooks told a friend a...

For more than 30 years, the sights and sounds of New York City have always dripped into Suzanne Vega’s music — most notably with her famous (and frequently covered) song “Tom’s Diner,” written about the same uptown restaurant made famous by “Seinfeld.” So it’s no surprise to learn that the 57-year-old folk-singer (who plays Joe’s...

‘The Front Page’ proves that newspapers are really funfrontpage

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 13:08:08 -0400

Hollywood’s “Spotlight,” about the Boston Globe’s investigation into crimes covered up by the Catholic Church, fully deserved its 2015 Oscar for Best Picture. It also made working for a daily newspaper look like the kind of voluntary self-flagellation pursued only by serious masochists. Who else would spend 12 hours in a dingy basement being berated...

Before the first preview of “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812” Tuesday night, producer Howard Kagan stood in front of his cast and crew and informed them that The Post was about to break a story about in-fighting among the producers. “But don’t worry,” Kagan said. “It will all blow over.” Not yet...

A playwright is accusing noted off-Broadway producer Jonathan Rockefeller of fraud, claiming his newest puppet-production “That Golden Girls Show!

“Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812,” a musical inspired by Tolstoy’s “War and Peace,” takes place during Napoleon’s invasion of Russia. But the feud among the producers of the show, which began previews Tuesday night, makes the Battle of Borodino look like a game of paintball. Threats of lawsuits are flying, people have...

Yes, Diane Lane should be on Broadway — but not in thischerry

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 16:42:59 -0400

Diane Lane has returned to Broadway after 39 years — and she should’ve stayed away a little longer. The movie star, who first stretched her legs in a 1977 production of Anton Chekhov’s “The Cherry Orchard,” is back on the boards in that very same play. But before you break out the vodka and caviar,...
