Emma Stone Brings Intensity, Sexual Energy to Sally Bowles in ‘Cabaret’

8 December 2014 7:01 AM, PST | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Emma Stone radiates on-screen chemistry in the movies; so it’s hard to expect anything less on Broadway, where she’s currently playing Sally Bowles, the decadent, yet vulnerable singer in the hit musical Cabaret. No surprise, she largely delivers. Sally is a complex role that has been essayed by some of the most renown actresses over its many revivals, including the incomparable Liza Minnelli. Jill Haworth played Sally when Cabaret debuted on Broadway in 1966, kicking off more than 1,100 performances that saw Anita Gillette and Melissa Hart also play the part. But Minnelli defined the role in the 1972 movie version directed by Bob Fosse. She was joined by Michael York and Joel Grey, who reprised his role from Broadway. [...] »

The 26-year-old actress is the latest star to take on the famed role of Sally Bowles in Cabaret. On November 11, Stone made her Broadway debut replacing Williams, who kicked off the revival of the award-winning musical about the seedy nightlife of 1930s Berlin.

While many have only seen the first image of Stone as the British performer Sally, Playbill has an exclusive behind the scenes look at the show. In the video, the actress sings, dances, and struts her way into the hearts of theatre fans everywhere.

The Birdman actress was originally supposed to star in revival when it first opened in March of this year, but had to pull out to scheduling conflicts. Now she finally has her chance to leave her mark as one of the many Sallys to take the stage.

Three Oscar Contenders Head to Broadway

18 November 2014 6:42 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Several Oscar contenders are heading to New York and the Broadway stage as the Oscar season progresses in Hollywood. With projects on both coasts, these contenders could score both Tony and Oscar nominations during the upcoming awards season.

Director Bob Fosse won two Tony Awards and an Oscar in 1973. The two Tonys were for direction and choreography for Pippin and the Oscar was for directing Cabaret. Director Stephen Daldry won an Oscar for The Reader and a Tony for Billy Elliot the Musical in 2009.

Five actresses have won both awards in the same year: Shirley Booth won a Tony for The Time of the Cuckoo and an Oscar for Come Back, Little Sheba in 1953; Audrey Hepburn won a Tony for Ondine and an Oscar for Roman Holiday in 1954; Ellen Burstyn won a Tony for Same Time, Next Year and an Oscar for Alice Doesn’t »

17 November 2014 12:45 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

All Dogs Go to Heaven is one of the classic also-rans of the quote-unquote "golden age of animation." While its theatrical release was pre-empted by an unassuming Disney flick called The Little Mermaid, the film found a second life on home video, eventually becoming one of MGM/United Artists' highest-selling video titles. The film turned 25 on Nov. 17, and in celebration, we're taking a closer look at its production and legacy. 1.

Emma Stone: A Sexy 'Cabaret' Pic and a 'Birdman' Clip

15 October 2014 1:54 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Emma Stone is keeping herself busy. Along with doing press for Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), she is about to make her Broadway debut in the revival of Cabaret as Sally Bowles, alongside Tony winner Alan Cumming. This revival is a remounting of 1998 production which won four Tonys and ran for over 2,300 performances. Stone will be taking over the role from Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams, who also made her Broadway debut in the show. I had the great pleasure to see the show back in June. I was two days late on the Shia Labeouf arrest, unfortunately. Williams received a lot of criticism for her performance because she is not the greatest singer in the world. The thing is, Sally is supposed to be untalented. She is just conning everyone into thinking she is great. I think people get hung up on what Liza Minnelli did in »

All That Jazz Criterion Blu-ray Review

14 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

All That Jazz is a masterpiece.  The film transcends genre, as it’s a perfect blend of musical, dark comedy, biopic and fantasy.  It’s a self-portrait, really, of co-writer and director Bob Fosse, and it’s made all the more impressive by the fact that it marked the second to last feature film from the man who had already helmed films like Cabaret, Sweet Charity, and Damn Yankees—talk about going out with a bang.  It’s a seminal piece of cinema that is both wildly entertaining and introspective, ruminating on life and death in unique fashion, and the film has now been given the grand Criterion Collection treatment.  It’s an absolute must-own for any serious film fan.  Read my full All That Jazz Criterion Blu-ray review after the jump.  The Film  All That Jazz is largely based on the life of Fosse himself, drawing inspiration from the »

With announcements for 'Executioner' and Remo Williams, Hollywood seems crazy for pulp

25 August 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

How many of you have ever read an actual original era pulp story? Anything involving Doc Savage or The Shadow or John Carter or Doctor Death or The Phantom Detective or Tarzan or Solomon Kane or Conan or The Continental Op? If you haven't, that puts you in what I am sure is a vast majority at this point. I can't fault anyone for not being a reader of that sort of source material. It's not something that is part of the active mainstream right now, but if Hollywood gets its way, that may be about to change. There are some huge names in the world of pulp. By far, the biggest budget pulp title currently pending release is the David Yates "Tarzan" that Warner Bros. is putting out in 2016. When I interviewed Samuel L. Jackson at Comic-Con this summer, he repeatedly told me how excited he was by what »

R.I.P. Lauren Bacall, Sultry Star Of Stage And Screens

14 August 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update August 14: Broadway will go dark: The marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed in memory of Lauren Bacall on Friday, August 15, at exactly 7:45 p.m. for one minute.

One of the leading ladies of Hollywood’s Golden Age died today after a stroke. The sultry, fiery Lauren Bacall was 89. MSNBC’s Thomas Robert broke the news in a tweet, and the Bogart estate has confirmed it. She was famous for starring — onscreeen and off — with Humphrey Bogart in such 1940s classics as The Big Sleep, To Have and Have Not, Dark Passage and Key Largo. In one of Hollywood’s great love stories, they married in 1945 and stayed together until his death in 1957. Four years later she married another acting legend, Jason Robards Jr.; they divorced in 1969.

Life To Be A ‘Cabaret’ For Emma Stone

12 August 2014 4:09 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The part of Sally Bowles has long been associated with Hollywood actresses. Performers as diverse as Jennifer Jason Leigh, Natasha Richardson and most recently Michelle Williams have donned the distinctive bowler hat and stockings for an image that was made an icon of cinema by Liza Minnelli in the 1972 film of Cabaret. Now after much speculation The Amazing Spider-man star Emma Stone is in the closing stages of negotiation to take over the stage show from Williams in November.

Relaunched in April by the powerhouse theatrical combination of former Donmar Warehouse boss/Skyfall director Sam Mendes (who previously staged it with Jane Horrocks) and Rob Marshall (Chicago), the production also features Alan Cumming as the ghoulish Mc who presides over the action as the Nazis encroach into the Weimar Republic in the run up to the Second World War.

Find Your Jesus, Find Your Kubrick: Lady Gaga as Auteur

25 July 2014 6:34 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

For a while, Lady Gaga was one of the most fascinating music stars that had come in a while, primarily because of her unapologetic bombast. Too often, though, she may have been written off as “weird”, from her odd fashion decisions, her performance art appearances on TV, and, of course, her music videos. Gaga, née Stefani Germanotta, through her strange videos presents a vision, often of powerful women and the subversion of fame, through each of her music videos. Sometimes straddling the line between film and music video, Lady Gaga, though not always the director of these videos, is always the auteur behind them.

Lady Gaga’s early music videos are nothing if not promotional material, with “LoveGame” and “Poker Face” being, for the most part, entirely generic within the context of her career. It was not perhaps until she employed the use of music video director Jonas Åkerlund that »

The Forgotten Auteur: Bob Fosse

7 July 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

Most people today would likely be shocked to think that in 1972, The Godfather went into the Oscars anything but a sure bet for Best Picture. Aside from Casablanca and Citizen Kane it is recognized as the greatest American film of all time and in hind sight most people forget that not only was it tied for nominations in 1972, but Coppola lost Best Director.

Because hindsight is anything but 20/20 when popular consensus takes over, the narrative of the Hollywood Renaissance is one of Scorsese, Spielberg and Lucas getting snubbed for Taxi Driver, Jaws, Close Encounters, and Star Wars. But looking at the 1970s and the race for Best Director, what you see instead is two directors fighting it out for director of the decade, each earning three nominations.

Obviously one of them is Francis Ford Coppola. With both Godfathers, The Conversation, and, Apocalypse Now most people would say that he won that fight. »

Win Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins on Blu-ray

7 July 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To mark the release of Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins on 7th July, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on Blu-ray.

First they faked his death and gave him a new identity. Now a top secret organisation is training a former New York cop to combat corrupt forces operating outside of the law. His mentor, Chiun, is an ageing Korean master of the martial arts who can run on water and dodge speeding bullets.

Born on the pages of Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir’s The Destroyer series of men’s adventure novels, Remo Williams was placed in the capable hands of Bond director Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger, The Man with the Golden Gun) for his big-screen outing. Fred Ward (Tremors) plays the trainee assassin, with Academy Award-winner Joel Grey (Cabaret) occupying the role of Chiun.

The UK has a sperm shortage, Constantine can’t smoke on TV, catching up with the Queer As Folk cast

While most reports say that the cast of Orange Is the New Black owned NYC Pride on their float, the sexy Matt McGorry is under fire for tweeting about it with a #NoHomo hashtag, and caught the appropriate amount of crap for it. McGorry says that it was a joke and the fact that he’s on a Pride float should make that obvious. All may be forgiven as a fan tweeted at him that he should tweet nudes to make up for it, and McGorry responded “Fair is fair.”
