“We need to be heroes again,” Michael Urie tells Et before a full weekend of performances at Second Stage Theatre, where the Younger star is leading the first major New York revival of Torch Song Trilogy, Harvey Fierstein’s seminal play about gay life and identity in 1970s and early ’80s New York. “We had a president who was a hero for us,” Urie says, recalling the past eight years with Barack Obama. “Now we have to be the heroes again and stand up for who we are.”
That conviction is at the heart of Torch Song, which will open off-Broadway Oct. 19 and continue through Dec. 3. As the actor notes, the original production “actually changed people’s lives” when it premiered, first in three parts downtown and then on Broadway in 1982, when Urie was just 2 years old. (It has been revised and condensed to a more conventional length -- and renamed Torch Song -- for the new revival »

Sarah Jessica Parker may be best known for her role as perennial city girl Carrie Bradshaw, but there's something else in her life that has stood the test of time: her marriage to fellow actor Matthew Broderick. Their love story reads like a Woody Allen movie: Sarah Jessica and Matthew met in 1991 after being introduced at a theater company by one of Sarah Jessica's brothers. They tied the knot in 1997 with a civil ceremony on Manhattan's Lower East Side - she famously wore a black wedding gown! - and have since become parents to son James Wilkie and twin daughters Tabitha and Loretta. They're not just one of Hollywood's longest-running celebrity couples, though - Matthew and Sjp are also widely recognized as famous figures in the Big Apple. They live in the West Village, champion important causes like arts education and music programs, and support the NYC Ballet and Unicef. »

Both couples were dressed to the nines for their formal date nights. The 52-year-old Sex and the City star put her hair up in a tight bun to keep the attention on her navy fringe Monse dress that she paired with a Gabriela Hearst bag.
As for Russell, 41, her black ruffled dress was a classy take on an '80s dress style. Meanwhile, Broderick and Rhys both opted for dapper tuxedos.
In addition to fall TV and a new slate of prestigious films, theater is gearing up for a new season, both on and Off-Broadway.
This year, there is no shortage of Hollywood star power -- ahem, the Broadway debuts of Amy Schumer and Uma Thurman, the return of Anna Camp and Clive Owen, and the Boss -- as well as anticipated new productions, must-see revivals and the redemption of director Julie Taymor. And the action is not limited to New York as two major musical adaptions get their feet wet with out of town tryouts.

With a Dark Knight rising, the birth of a fearsome foe and a cool twist on Penguin’s criminal empire, Fox’s Gotham appears to be bat on track after a patience-testing, Tetch-and-go season.
It is early, of course, but Season 4 portends to be a bit more focused, with the premiere zeroing in on Penguin’s new “license to (anything but) kill” initiative, which has taken a serious bite out of crime by regulating it — and thus earned the backroom endorsement of both the mayor and police chief. Gordon of course isn’t at first aware of, and even upon »
