Tony Awards 2014: Who will win?

3 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Will Neil Patrick Harris claim his first Tony Award this Sunday for his gender-bending turn in the musical revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch? Probably. Will fellow multiple-Emmy winner Bryan Cranston win for playing Lyndon B. Johnson in the biodrama All the Way? Count on it. But will it be the Carole King biomusical Beautiful or the murderously funny A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder that earns top honors as the Best New Musical of the Broadway season?

On that point, as on many other tight races in this year’s Tony contest, EW critics Melissa Rose Bernardo and Thom Geier are divided. »

29 April 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Fully realizing its underdog appeal, the cheeky musical A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder slayed the competition this morning with a whopping 10 Tony nominations, including nods for both of its tireless leading men, Jefferson Mays and Bryce Pinkham. Neil Patrick Harris’ return to Broadway after a decade yielded him his first-ever Tony nomination for the celebrated revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which netted an impressive eight nods. (Had it been eligible as a new musical, Hedwig probably would have easily tied Guide, as score and book would have been slam dunks). Trailing these shows with seven »

Power of Women: New York Continues to Incubate Trailblazing Women of Entertainment

22 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When you think of the brilliant, bad-ass women in entertainment and media in New York, it’s hard to know where their quirky genius begins and the city ends. From Clare Boothe Luce to Helen Gurley Brown, from Gloria Steinem to Barbara Walters, Gilda Radner to Diane Keaton, Diane Sawyer, Patti Smith, Whoopi Goldberg, Nora Ephron, Tina Brown, Annie Leibovitz and Lena Dunham (not to mention the new top editor at the New York Times, Jill Abramson), women in New York are not like anyone else, including each other: They’re razor-sharp, with unique voices and an outlying vision that enter the mainstream and tug it away from the lowest common denominator and toward something smarter, funnier, more tolerant, more knowing, better.

“It’s in the water,” says maverick ICM literary agent Esther Newberg. “Shirley Chisholm ran for president. We had a black mayor early (David Dinkins, 1990-2003). This neck »

Theater Review: Misfires in Bullets Over Broadway

10 April 2014 7:32 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Whatever musical comedy is, there hasn’t been much of it this season. We’ve seen plenty of musical drama, sure. A few revues and bio-jukeboxes. Even, God help us, a rock-star rabbi. But of the four new shows that could possibly be considered heirs to the once dominant Broadway category, one feels more like an operetta (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder), one’s a Disney retread (Aladdin), and one (First Date) was basically a skit and died. That leaves only Bullets Over BroadwayWoody Allen’s stage adaptation of his charming 1994 movie, with Susan Stroman directing and choreographing — to hoist the pinstripes-and-marabou flag above midtown. Unfortunately, as musical comedy goes, it’s neither.It does have songs, of course. And it has the movie’s amusing premise: A mobster finances a bad play in order to give his talentless girlfriend a role; when the henchman he »

Bullets Over Broadway: Theater Review

10 April 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

New York – There's a ton of talent onstage in Bullets Over Broadway, evident in the leggy chorines who ignite into explosive dance routines, the gifted cast, the sparkling design elements and the wraparound razzle-dazzle of director-choreographer Susan Stroman's lavish production. So why does this musical, adapted by Woody Allen from his irresistible 1994 screen comedy about the tortured path of the artist, wind up shooting blanks? Flat where it should be frothy, the show is a watered-down champagne cocktail that too seldom gets beyond its recycled jokes and second-hand characterizations to assert an exciting new
