'Once' makes perfect transition from film to Broadway stage

23 March 2012 4:24 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

"Bent" is a delightful story that features an extraordinarily talented cast. Sure, they're the usual triple threats of Broadway -- singers, dancers, actors -- but they're also skilled musicians, who make wonderful music together.

Music is at the heart of this play, which hews close to John Carney's 2006 film. The show opened earlier this week (March 19), and this early in a run people aren't always quite sure what they're walking into. But the moment you enter the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, it's clear. It's like stepping into a Dublin pub.

And that's a grand way to spend an evening.

The unusual pre-show has the musician-actors playing instruments and bartenders pouring $13 beers. The bar is stocked with Paddy and Jameson. The worn linoleum, dim bulbs and cloudy mirrors, better for deep reflection than appearance checks, all help set the scene.

This musical manages to avoid veering off into too whimsical or too predictable territory. »

This Week on Stage: Mike Daisey controversy, Andrew Garfield and Phillip Seymour Hoffman take on Arthur Miller

17 March 2012 10:50 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The season is revving up, there’s only 85 days left until the Tonys, and one of the most anticipated plays of the spring, Death of a Salesman, just opened—but the stage news that had everyone talking this week was the revelation that monologist Mike Daisey had fabricated parts of his off-Broadway hit The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs. Yet, there were also good things going on: David Strathairn joined Jessica Chastain in next season’s The Heiress, Universal hired Downton Abbey’s Julian Fellowes to adapt another big screen Gypsy, and Val Kilmer announced he will play »

Luther from 'The Warriors' plays the dad in the Broadway musical 'Once'

17 March 2012 5:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

If you’re planning to see the Broadway adaptation of Once (which opens at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on Mar. 18), I’ve already spoiled something for you: the moment when you say to yourself, “Oh my God, that’s the bad guy from The Warriors up on stage.” Yep, the man who said the oft-quoted “Warriors, come out to play-ay” is in a musical—singing, dancing, strumming the mandolin (Once’s cast is also its orchestra) and play-ay-ing the father of the guitar-playing hero.

For David Patrick Kelly, rocking a mandolin on Broadway is actually the most natural thing in the world. »

Special Features - The Greatest Action Movie Douchebags

2 March 2012 6:42 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe presents a selection of the action genre's greatest douchebags...

Cinema has created many wonderful characters over the years. We’ve had classic heroes, and the most heinous of villains. Heroes and villains are particularly paramount in the action genre. There’s also another type of character: The Douchebag. These would be the whiny, sniveling, low down, dirty weasels who at some point try to screw over the hero but normally come unstuck. Often they’re not the main villain because they’re too slimy and weasily, without enough determination to get done what a full-on evil-doer will.

Here is a list of classic action movie douchebags, in no particular order...

The Die Hard Douchebags

Die Hard remains one of the best action films ever. It’s a template by which many subsequent films have molded themselves on, but without ever matching the quality of this benchmark. Die Hard »

'Once' comes to Broadway (with even more Swell Season tunes) -- Exclusive Clips

15 February 2012 6:00 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Don’t lump the upcoming adaptation of Irish indie Once together with this season’s other Broadway film-to-stage musicals, Ghost, Newsies, and Leap of Faith. The story is simple: A Dublin street busker and a Czech pianist make beautiful musical together over the course of five days. The score is unusual: The film’s original songwriters’ Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová blended tracks from the film (including the Oscar-winning “Falling Slowly,” see our exclusive clip below) with some of their subsequent recordings as the duo the Swell Season, and then added Irish and Czech folk tunes. All the instruments — piano, »
