What to do this Fourth of July: a complete cultural guide

2 July 2015 12:02 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From TV-loving agoraphobes to those looking for brazen shirtless male strippers, this holiday weekend offers plenty for the culturally curious to explore

Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960–1971

It goes a long way to revalorising one of the most misunderstood artists of the last 60 years. Her massive fame, and maybe her heal-the-world rhetoric too, has obscured the groundbreaking contributions she made to the art of the 1960s and beyond. At last, the art world has come round. This show is no guerrilla occupation. It is a belated and jubilant rectification of the historical record, and a victory lap for an artist laughed at for too long.

One of the most alluring parts of Purifoy’s work is the richness of its meaning. Much of it is playful and humorous. He handles social issues with a deft touch – perhaps in the Langston Hughes spirit of “laughing to keep from crying”. And »

Rainn Wilson, Mandy Patinkin and Demi Lovato Get Smurfy For Sony

15 June 2015 5:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For people of a certain age, there can be little argument that the most recent big screen outings for the Smurfs were disappointing, to say the least. Thrusting the beloved little blue characters into an animation/live action hybrid scenario was, quite simply, ill-advised – even if Hank Azaria was obviously born to play the evil wizard, Gargamel. The fact that the 2011 and 2013 movies are the only Smurfish point of reference for a whole new generation of children is tragic – which makes the news of a fully animated re-boot from Sony Pictures Animation – titled Get Smurfy – most welcome indeed.

The Smurfs hail from a bygone era – first appearing in 1958, as the comic strip creation of Belgian artist Peyo. Peyo was the author of Johan And Peewit at the time, which was a story set in the Middle Ages, and featured a King’s Page and his sidekick. Published in an issue »

‘Something Rotten!’ Theater Review: Or How a Musical Called ‘Omelette’ Begat a Play Called ‘Hamlet’

22 April 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The new musical “Something Rotten!,” which opened Wednesday at the St. James Theatre in New York, offers something rare, as well as something recycled. The something rare is the opportunity for no fewer than three leading men to astonish us in entirely different ways. As is often the case, the devil in the group dominates, even though Christian Borle‘s Shakespeare as rock star has the least stage time. Book writers Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell create something original here, and Borle pulls off the rare feat of appearing simultaneously sexy and ridiculous as the Bard who rips off “Hamlet” from. »

Mandy Patinkin Will Be Papa Smurf

18 January 2015 9:58 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

More often found these days leading the hunt for terrorists on Homeland, Mandy Pantinkin has agreed to spend some time smurfing the smurfs for smurfs in the role of Papa Smurf as Sony prepares to feed its profitable franchise into the reboot machine for an all-animated new film.Patinkin, who has also been known to grace a stage or two in his time, will take over the Papa Smurf role voiced in the first two live-action/CG blend films by Jonathan Winters, who died in 2013.Shrek 2’s Kelly Asbury is directing the new film, which resets the clock back for a Smurfs origin story and intends to return the small blue characters to their traditional, Peyo-derived look as opposed to the more solid CG versions seen in the 2011 and 2013 films. Not much else is known about the new film other than that Asbury’s fellow DreamWorks veteran (and »

Mandy Patinkin To Voice Papa Smurf

16 January 2015 5:45 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Homeland" star Mandy Patinkin is set to voice Papa Smurf in Sony Pictures Animation's upcoming reboot of its "The Smurfs" franchise.

The new film will ditch the CG 'Smurfs in our contemporary world' setting in favor of a fully animated project that sticks closer to the original cartoon and designs by creator Peyo.

The project will also give a new origin story to the Smurfs. Though the wise paternal leader of the creatures, that will not always be the case with this Papa Smurf.

Kelly Asbury ("Gnomeo and Juliet," "Shrek the Third") is directing from a script by "Over The Hedge" scribes Karey Kirkpatrick and Chris Poche. An August 5th 2016 release date is being targeted.

'Smurfs' Reboot Gets Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf

16 January 2015 2:58 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures Animation has brought on Homeland star Mandy Patinkin to voice Papa Smurf in their Untitled Smurfs Movie. Unlike 2011's The Smurfs and 2013's The Smurfs 2, which were live action/CGI animation hybrids, this Smurfs project will be fully animated, sticking closer to the original designs by creator Peyo. The project will give a new origin story to the Smurfs, and, while Papa Smurf is supposed to be "the wise paternal leader" of these tiny blue creatures, that will not always be the case.

Jonathan Winters voiced Papa Smurf in The Smurfs and The Smurfs 2, with Don Messick voicing the character in the original Smurfs animated TV series. Kelly Asbury (Gnomeo and Juliet, Shrek the Third) is directing from a script by Karey Kirkpatrick (The Secret World of Arrietty, Over The Hedge) and Chris Poche (Over The Hedge). Jordan Kerner is producing with Mary Ellen Bauder serving as co-producer. »
