Broadway will dim its lights Tuesday night in honor of producer Martin Richards, who died this week at age 80. Richards was the force behind such classic musicals as "La Cage aux Folles," "Sweeney Todd" and "Chicago." Although best known for his work on plays that were song and dance heavy, he also produced straight dramatic works such as the Pulitzer Prize winning "Crimes of the Heart."

Martin Richards — or “Marty,” as those in the theater community called him — died of cancer Monday in New York City. Richards won an Academy Award in 2003 for producing that year’s Best Picture, Chicago. The Oscar was the culmination of Richards’s decades-long battle to bring that Kander and Ebb musical to movie theaters; it began in 1975, when Richards produced the show’s original Broadway production.
Of course, Chicago wasn’t Richards’s only project. The prolific stage producer — born Morton Richard Klein in the Bronx — was nominated for 10 Tony Awards throughout his career, winning for La Cage aux Folles »

Marty Richards, producer and philanthropist, died yesterday at age 80. The New Yorker’s stage producing credits included Chicago, Sweeney Todd, La Cage aux Folles, and Crimes of the Heart. While Broadway was his stomping grounds over a 50 year career, Richards had a pretty good film resume as well. It includes winning Best Picture for the 2002 film Chicago, as well as The Boys From Brazil, Fort Apache, The Bronx, and the Stanley Kubrick-directed The Shining. Funeral services will be held later this week in New York for Richards, whose philanthropic efforts included the formation of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and Meals On Wheels. He also made possible the liver and kidney transplant unit at Nyu Medical Center. »

Martin Richards, a Broadway and Hollywood showman whose own life was often as flamboyant and warmhearted as his many productions, died of cancer Monday at his Upper East Side New York home. He was 80. Winning the Best Picture Oscar for his movie musical Chicago at the 2003 Academy Awards - he had also produced the original Broadway version in 1975 - Richards had to hold back the tears as he recalled those he had worked with on the show, including the late legendary director-choreographer Bob Fosse and Richards's late producing partner and wife, Mary Lea Johnson, of the Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical company family. »

Marty Richards, the producer behind the Broadway productions of "Sweeney Todd" and "La Cage aux Folles," as well as the 2002 big-screen adaptation of "Chicago," died Monday, Playbill reports. He was 80. Richards, born Morton Richard Klein in the Bronx, started out as a performer, joining the cast of the 1944 musical comedy "Mexican Hayride" at 10 and performing as a nightclub singer while studying architecture at Nyu. Small television and movie parts followed, with Richards later working as a casting director for Fox and Paramount. Also read: Notable Celebrity Deaths of »

BBC4's acclaimed but little-watched hospital sitcom is quietly groundbreaking in its portrayals of women, age and the NHS. And it's very, very funny
Sometimes a straightforward formula is just so perfect that endless variation on the theme serves only to confirm its enduring worth. Such is the comic triple, or rule of three, as seen in Father Ted, Frasier, The Office, Only Fools and Horses and so on. Broadly, the man with most status and self-esteem is the most egregious idiot; his sidekick, though idiotic himself, is not quite so daft that he deserves to be patronised by such a fool, while the third man has enough common sense to get what he wants from the situation. Let the laughter commence.
It would be insulting to suggest that the great thing about BBC4's Getting On (which finished its third series this week) is that it repeats the formula – but with women. »

Any revival is an indication of a play's bid for immortality -- at least as immortal as live theater can be. But when a play has its 15th (not counting different incarnations, such as musicals) it surpasses that bid and moves on to wonder.
Such is "Cyrano de Bergerac."
The latest revival is the Roundabout Theatre Company's at American Airlines Theatre, on 42nd Street. Now if only this version were a wonder.
It was only five years ago that Kevin Kline turned in an amazing performance in the title role. Though five years is a long time for, say cleaning out your refrigerator, it's not very long at all when it comes to theater.
Douglas Hodge (Broadway's "La Cage aux Folles" "Vanity Fair") is Cyrano. And as the part requires, he is larger than life. Ok, larger than the stage, certainly, and the theater can barely contain him. He has his admirers, »
Winter is coming to Broadway. And so is Emilia Clarke, the Khaleesi from HBO’s Game of Thrones, who will play Holly Golightly in a new adaptation of Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Richard Greenberg (Take Me Out), opening this spring.
In addition, Tom Hanks confirmed that he’ll make his long-overdue Broadway debut this season as the late tabloid columnist Mike McAlary in Lucky Guy, a new play by Nora Ephron (who died of leukemia in June).
Also booked for the Great White Way this spring: Eric Coble’s new comedy The Velocity of Autumn, starring »

New York – Playing a French Riviera drag queen by way of British music hall, Douglas Hodge won a Tony Award for the 2010 revival of La Cage aux Folles. Presumably given his choice of vehicles in which to return to Broadway, the gifted English actor has opted for Edmond Rostand’s 1897 classic, Cyrano de Bergerac, taking on the eloquent French nobleman whose love life is cramped by his unfortunate snout. But while Hodge attacks the title role with formidable energy and inventiveness, his virtuosic display muffles the poetry of the play. The same goes in general for the pedal-

Brace yourselves. This list of the Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies is probably going to generate some howls of protest thanks to a rather major upset in the rankings. Frankly, one that surprised the hell out of us here at AfterElton.
But before we get to that, an introduction. A few weeks ago we asked AfterElton readers to submit up to ten of their favorite films by write-in vote. We conducted a similar poll several years ago, but a lot has happened culturally since then, and a number of worthy movies of gay interest have been released. We wanted to see how your list of favorites had changed.
We also wanted to expand our list to 100 from the top 50 we had done previously. We figured there were finally enough quality gay films to justify the expansion. And we wanted to break out gay documentaries onto their own list (You'll find the »

Old superheroes never die; they simply hang up their capes and retreat to the shadows, awaiting the moment when fashions change and they're required again. One minute Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) is hobbling around his country pile, leaning on his stick like a latterday Howard Hughes and woefully proclaiming that "there's nothing out there for me". The next he's back in the bat-suit, back in the saddle – recalled to save the world or Warner Bros, whatever comes first.
Preamble complete, the dark knight duly rises for the bruising final stanza in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, a satisfying saga of revolution and redemption that ends the tale on a note of thunder. If viewers were wanting a corrective to the jumpsuit antics of The Avengers, or the noodling high-school angst of The Amazing Spider-Man, »

The conference will take place at the Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach with the theme of “Growing Drupal Downunder.” It is designed to be relevant to any organisation already using, considering using, or wanting to learn about Drupal for a Cms.

Hot on the heels of Marvel's announcement at Comic-Con over the weekend that the upcoming "Captain America 2" had been renamed "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" comes this latest bombshell: Anthony Mackie is in talks to join the cast — and he'll be playing the high-flying Falcon.
Looks like the supervillains might as just retire right now.
Here's a quick run down for the uninitiated: In the comic books, The Falcon is a social worker named Sam Wilson who takes to the skies to fight crime thanks to a special suit that allows him to soar alongside his telepathically-linked pet falcon, Red Wing. He also acts as Captain America's best friend and right hand man, assisting with everything from shutting down small time hoods to saving the universe.
And now he appears ready to take on the same role in the movies, as The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that "The Hurt Locker »

After two weeks of waiting, we finally got to see Jenna's big "coming out" birthday bash.
Unfortunately, this Pretty Little Liars episode was disappointingly slow-paced with very few exciting revelations.
"That Girl is Poison" seemed like it was building to an interesting and crazy climax at Jenna's party, especially with Garrett being released from prison the same night. But all those expectations were let down when the party turned into kind of a bust. Usually after slower episodes like last week's "Birds of a Feather," the series returns with a much more excitement.
Too bad that didn't happen this week.
When it comes to the A mystery(ies), what did we learn in this episode?
Someone drugged Emily with powerful sleeping pills the night Ali's body was stolen. The same pills used to drug Emily were found in Lucas's camera bag, along with some negatives. But we don't know if »

Join Teresa Lopez, Leigh Raines, Christina Tran, Nick McHatton and Carissa Pavlica as they knock around some thoughts on the latest installment, then sound off yourself in the comments!
Should Hanna have told Caleb the truth?
Teresa: Hanna definitely should've told Caleb all about the new A. I guess she didn't learn anything last season. Plus, how is Caleb suppose to warn his family or protect them if he has no idea they are in danger?
Leigh: I think Caleb deserves to know the truth. A is after him now too. If Hanna told Caleb, he could protect himself and not get involved with and threaten psychos like Mona. He's also been really supportive of »

It.s official: Pretty Little Liars has never moved at a faster pace. How refreshing after two seasons of dragging our feet to see this show really pick up and deliver answers every week. It.s hard to say whether we.re moving forward to a satisfying conclusion.this is still Pretty Little Liars, so that.s hard to imagine.but at this point, it.s clear we.re at least going full speed ahead.

After a pretty strong return, Pretty Little Liars delivers a less exciting installment this week.
Don't get me wrong, "Birds of A Feather" was a good episode. It just moved rather slowly, and there wasn't a whole lot of suspense to the story. But there were some dramatic developments, which made this yet another enjoyable night of television.
First things first: Melissa was the black swan!
Spencer finally realized that Melissa was a perfect candidate for the brunette black swan and helped the girls "break" into her apartment to look for clues. The matching feather led Spencer to finally confront Melissa, and strangely enough, Melissa actually opened up.
Our Round Table discussion came really close to guessing the truth about her pregnancy. Melissa told Spencer and her mother that she lost the baby right after Ian died and that someone blackmailed her into wearing the costume that night.
If we believe everything Melissa said, »
