    Shut Up, Spider-Man

    Thursday, March 17th, 2011

    All of Broadway is talking….about how sick they are of talking about “Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark.” (More news tomorrow, maybe!) It turns out you can do a musical comedy on the Book of Mormon and, even if you’re the South Park guys, you get no attention. This may be the first time Trey and [...]

    Green Day Takes Broadway

    Sunday, March 28th, 2010

    In today’s Post, I talk to Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day about his band’s infiltration of Broadway with the musical “American Idiot,” which I hold out as a viable solution to B’way’s chronic candyassery.

    Happy Birthday, Stephen Sondheim

    Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

    Genius. And another 100 tributes just got off of the train.

    “Frost/Nixon”: The Original Interviews

    Monday, August 3rd, 2009

    PBS is airing excerpts from the original David Frost-Richard Nixon interviews this week. I offer a thought on them in today’s Post.

    Review: “Every Little Step”

    Friday, April 17th, 2009

    The sloppy documentary “Every Little Step” revisits the legend of “A Chorus Line.” My review is up.

    Review: “Kazan on Directing”

    Sunday, April 12th, 2009

    Also in today’s Post, I look at Elia Kazan’s remarks on directing, as gathered in an interesting new book that looks at the craft from one of its most talented practitioners, the director of “A Streetcar Named Desire,” “Death of a Salesman” and “On the Waterfront.”

    One Man Rambo: Live on Stage

    Monday, March 23rd, 2009

    A review of a wacky-sounding one-man show called “Rambo Solo” happening in downtown New York now: a guy is acting out “First Blood” for your theatrical pleasure.
    Mr. Oberzan’s character — for ease I will henceforth refer to him as Rambo Nut — has plenty of time to kill, and maybe some emotional problems too. He [...]

    Natasha Richardson’s Last Film

    Friday, March 20th, 2009

    Lou Lumenick has the info on Natasha Richardson’s last, apparently dismal film, an Emma Roberts vehicle. (Young Roberts is, I think, going to be a big star. Check her out in the upcoming “Lymelife,” her first grown-up role….she even does an underwear scene and smokes pot.)
    I saw the beautiful and talented Richardson on stage [...]

    Will Ferrell’s Bush League Show

    Sunday, February 8th, 2009

    Inside the new Bush-bashing Will Ferrell show on Broadway–in which Ferrell uses our dead troops to set up a cheap joke. More in my Sunday column.

    Will Ferrell’s Broadway Yawner

    Friday, February 6th, 2009

    Rave reviews for Will Ferrell’s Broadway show “Thank You America: A Final Night with George W. Bush” today. No surprise there.
    But check out my upcoming Sunday column to learn something about the show that will disgust you, if you are a patriotic American.
    One excellent thing about the end of the Bush presidency is [...]
