Meet the Youngest Conductor to Ever Lead the Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s Day Concert (Plus, How He Inspired Mozart In the Jungle)

30 December 2016 8:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Gustavo Dudamel takes the stage at the Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s Day concert this weekend, he will be the youngest music conductor ever to lead the famed event.

The annual New Year’s Concert, which will be hosted by Oscar-winner Julie Andrews, features melodies from the Strauss Family and their contemporaries — and broadcasts live to over 90 countries.

“You don’t just have to know a lot about music — you have to know a lot about psychology and philosophy,” Dudamel recently told People. “Conducting is being a leader. A hundred people trust that you can guide them.”

Cleverman is returning.—.with a season that ABC TV's Richard Finalyson calls "a little less dark than the first".—.as is Glitch. The second season of the Matchbox zombie drama will be co-produced by Netflix and the ABC.

Perhaps the highest-profile new program comes from the team behind Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, Fiona Eagger and Deb Cox:.Newton's Law stars Claudia Karvan as Josephine Newton, "a suburban solicitor with an over-developed sense of responsibility who attempts to return to her briefly glorious stint at the Bar."

Hamilton's America review – loving documentary entertains and frustrates

17 October 2016 4:15 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

In-depth look at the hit Broadway musical has an impressively starry lineup but doesn’t give us a truly behind-the-scenes peek at the creative process

Now that Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton, the hip-hop biography of Alexander Hamilton, has won its Grammy and its Pulitzer and its many Tonys, its place in the cultural firmament is assured. Tickets to the show at the Richard Rodgers theater, which seats only 1,319, are notoriously difficult to snag and more than worth their weight in gold. So there’s a ready-made audience for the PBS documentary Hamilton’s America, which screens on 21 October under the aegis of Great Performances: everyone wants to be in the room where it happens.

New York Film Festival Review: ‘Hamilton’s America’

2 October 2016 2:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A big-spectacle Broadway production is, quite visibly, a collaborative effort — actors, sets, choreography, costumes, lighting, orchestra. On rare occasions, though, beneath the razzle-dazzle, a major Broadway show can also represent the singular expression of an artist’s voice, one that speaks to an audience so directly and powerfully that watching it, you feel as thrillingly enveloped in the soul of that artist as you do when standing in front of a Jackson Pollack painting or reading a novel by Jane Austen. The artists of Broadway who achieve that level of intensely personal yet mythological force come along once or twice in a generation. Michael Bennett did it with “A Chorus Line.” Tony Kushner did it with “Angels in America.” And Lin-Manuel Miranda did it with “Hamilton,” the exhilaratingly brash historical hip-hop musical that has done nothing less than rewrite the way Americans think and feel about the Founding Fathers, getting »

Fine fine fine? Reviewing every episode of 'Transparent' season 3

26 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On Friday, Amazon released all 10 episodes of Transparent season 3, and I have some general thoughts on the year, followed by a mini-reviews of each episode, coming up just as soon as I say I'm the strip club's It person... As I alluded to in the introduction to my interview with the always-candid Gaby Hoffmann, I found that season 3 worked more in individual moments — or at times for entire episodes — than it did as a season of TV. The character arcs frequently felt like they were jumping from Point A to Point D without worrying about B or C, even though it wasn't structurally all that different from the previous seasons. Great performances, great scenes, and slightly more self-awareness from the Pfeffermans — Maura and Shelly, at least, and maybe Ali — but something was a bit lacking compared to the show's previous heights. Let's go episode-by-episode, and I'll do my best not »

‘Hamilton’s America’: Behind the Scenes of Documenting Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hit Musical

20 September 2016 8:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Editor’s Note: Alex Horwitz had no way of knowing “Hamilton” would become a cultural phenomenon that would change Broadway and launch his friend Lin-Manuel Miranda into super-stardom. Early on, however, the genre filmmaker (“Alice Jacobs is Dead”) and documentary film editor (“Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger”) could tell Miranda was onto something special. Specifically drawn to the way Miranda was bringing history to life through hip-hop in his early tracks, Horwitz picked up a camera and started capturing the creation of the musical, while joining Miranda on his research and exploration of the Founding Fathers.

In anticipation of the “Hamilton’s America” premiere at the New York Film Festival on October 1 and its television premiere on PBS’s “Great Performances” on October 21, IndieWire reached out to Horwitz to find out more about his new film, backed by RadicalMedia. What we got was this detailed »
