Adam Scott on Greatest Event Guilt, Wearing Short-Shorts, and Directing Parks and Recreation
After his second Greatest Event in Television History, a remake of the opening credits to Hart to Hart, Adam Scott explained to us at length why it put all other TV greats to shame. He made a compelling case for his work alongside Amy Poehler, and at the time, we believed it to be his best. But now here he is rolling up with a fourth Greatest Event, this one co-starring Paul Rudd and some serious eighties coifs. How will his latest (premiering tonight at midnight on Adult Swim) stack up against the previous editions? We put the question to the man himself.

A New Pair Of Star-Crossed Lovers?

A New Pair Of Star-Crossed Lovers?
New York — Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad will star on Broadway this fall in a modern take on William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet," a revival that will add an intriguing element of racial contrast to the classic tale of two star-crossed lovers.

"The last thing we wanted to do was to do a sort of pompous, classic version of `Romeo and Juliet,'" said director David Leveaux, a five-time Tony Award nominee. "I'm just taking away all the wallpaper and mantelpieces, all the kind of pompous stuff we associate with grand Shakespeare productions, and try to go as simple as possible."

Producers said Monday that previews at the Richard Rodgers Theatre will begin Aug. 24 with an opening night set for Sept. 19. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on April 8.

The production will also star two-time Tony Award nominee Jayne Houdyshell as the Nurse and Tony nominee Joe Morton as Lord Capulet.
