Sigourney Weaver’s fake Russian accent cracks me up every time.October 10, 2019 at 8:07 am #1203130662
Do we think Sara Bareillis will be coming in to close the run of Waitress for the last few weeks?October 10, 2019 at 6:59 am #1203130589
Despite being originally announced as a “strictly limited engagement”, Slave Play has extended its Broadway run by two weeks, now through January 19.
This seems a bit odd to me given the heavily papered houses we’ve seen based on low per-ticket averages and the reviews that were probably slightly less enthusiastic than expected (leaning more towards respectful than effusive). But it’s not my money, so knock yourselves out.October 10, 2019 at 5:56 am #1203130549
It was only nominated for a Golden Globe because the voters thought Cher might come to one of their parties then.
I made it through ten minutes of the movie. It was excruciatingly wretched.October 10, 2019 at 5:18 am #1203130526
Look what Moulin Rouge hath wrought.
I’ll be floored if this ever sees the lights of Broadway. The basements of Paper Mill are littered with would-be Broadway transfers.October 9, 2019 at 6:27 am #1203129087
I love that it’s big enough for there to be plenty of entertainment/cultural/culinary/etc. options but still not so big that it’s an urban blight, but I hate that there’s no decent public transportation. Buses don’t count.

I hated the film and would have no interest in a stage version.October 5, 2019 at 9:40 pm #1203123400
“A new study suggests that fathers-to-be should stop drinking alcohol six months before trying to conceive a child. The study’s goal was to end Ireland.”

Agree this was a step up from last week. The refrigerator story was really silly, but Ferguson and Stonestreet pulled it off somehow. They underplayed parts of it (refreshing from these two, who have a tendency to be broad as a barn) and it worked as a result. They have made poor Claire into a harpy, though her bumper bit about how she gets one day because her kids have always been ashamed of her was a nice ending capper. Enjoyed the Phil and Gloria stuff fine, but my favorite bit was the recall of Luke’s hostility towards Lily, which I’ve always found hilarious for some reason.October 3, 2019 at 11:58 am #1203119482
Fleabag. A perfect little jewel box of a series.October 3, 2019 at 11:25 am #1203119376
Well, I was super-excited for The Goldfinch, but then the reviews were so bad I didn’t even go see it. So the last one I actually saw that I can think of was Vice, which I thought was a mess.

Tried another couple of episodes to see if I might change my mind, but no. The best an actor can hope for here is to rise above the arch, loopy dialogue—and there are a few deep in the supporting cast who don’t.
And who on earth could swallow that there would be this much polling data for a high school class president election? That’s outlandish even for nonsense like this. This thing misfires worse than Dick Cheney on a hunting weekend.
Though I do think it has an Emmy nom locked up for Main Title Design. 🙄September 30, 2019 at 12:25 pm #1203114220
A couple of previewing shows are off to brutal starts. Linda Vista and The Lightning Thief had dismal numbers last week: $137,786 and $216,708 respectively. Linda Vista at least is a non-profit production, but the numbers for Lightning must be giving the accountants ulcers. A $47 average ticket and 25% of gross potential are not going to pay the bills. I hope the producers have some dough in the reserve tanks, or this won’t make it through its limited run. The Sound Inside isn’t doing gangbusters, but at least it’s likely covering its nut.September 30, 2019 at 8:47 am #1203113654
I think Disney will just enter one song from Frozen II, like they did for “Let It Go” in Frozen and “Remember Me” from Coco.
