15 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Backstage news »

“Mamma Mia!” held its final Broadway curtain call this past Saturday after 14 years and well over 5,000 historical performances. Do you know which other Broadway shows have enjoyed similarly impressive stretches? These are 11 of the Great White Way’s longest running shows. And here’s to keeping a good thing going! “The Phantom of the Opera”A worldwide phenomenon and Broadway’s longest running musical, “Phantom” opened in 1988 to rave reviews and multiple awards, and has stood the test of time ever since. The epic Andrew Lloyd Webber masterpiece is still playing at Broadway’s Majestic Theatre (clocking in at over 10,000 performances) and is wowing new audiences a generation removed from the show’s first fans. “Chicago”Though Broadway’s original 1975 production may have closed after a (relatively) short two years, the current revival of “Chicago” has been jazzing it up at Broadway’s Ambassador Theatre since 1996.

Audacious Indie Childless Lets a Great Cast Be Shallow in the Face of Death

12 May 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Grief unleashes self-centered bluster instead of contemplative sorrow in the talky drama Childless. Four relatives preparing to attend a funeral focus less on the sudden death of sixteen-year-old Katherine (Natalie Dreyfuss) and more on relationship anxieties. Mary (Diane Venora) envisions an awkward reunion with ex-boyfriend Richard (Joe Mantegna), Katherine's stunned father, while his sister Natalie (Barbara Hershey) contemplates her future with distant husband Harvey (James Naughton). Writer-director Charlie Levi airs their musings as a series of monologues, and even Katherine gets in on the act. With a surprising lightness, Dreyfuss plays her as a blithe spirit free from earthly worries, unlike the exasperating adults fixated on their own concerns. Na »

Monterey Media Acquires Award-Winning Drama 'Childless'

30 March 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Monterey Media Acquires True Crime Drama 'The Pardon' Monterey media has acquired U.S. and Canadian distribution rights to writer-director Charlie Levi's award-winning drama "Childless," starring Joe Mantegna, Barbara Hershey, Diane Venora and James Naughton. The film won the Visionary Award at the Boston Film Festival during an initial test screening. The uniquely styled drama centers on four adults in the aftermath of the sudden passing of a teenage girl. As each gets ready for the funeral, they speak their private thoughts directly to the camera in an attempt to understand and justify the current states of their own lives. It's ultimately left up to the viewer to make sense of these off-kilter, self-serving, yet frequently humorous personal accounts. "We are so very thrilled to be on board with these wonderful actors and this distinctive film with its interesting history," commented Scott Mansfield, Managing Partner of monterey. »
