[Press Release] New York, NY – Monday, March 23, 2015 – Producers of the new Broadway musical Finding Neverland are delighted to announce the gross for its first full week of previews – only 7 performances – is $1,004,171.00. The show, starring Matthew Morrison, Kelsey Grammer and Laura Michelle Kelly, began previews on Sunday, March 15 and has been playing at or near sold-out capacity since. Speaking on behalf of the production, Executive Producer Victoria Parker said today, “It’s exciting to see firsthand how word-of-mouth and social media buzz directly translates to box office sales. We are delighted that audiences are embracing Finding Neverland.” Based on the Academy Award® winning motion picture by the same name, Finding Neverland follows playwright J.M. Barrie as he summons the »

It’s late afternoon, halfway through a 12-hour-long rehearsal day for Finding Neverland, the musical version of the 2004 Johnny Depp movie about the playwright J.M. Barrie — creator, 111 years ago, of Peter Pan and the Lost Boys, which made his career and also inspired the 1953 Disney animated movie, the 1960 stage-to-screen version starring Mary Martin, the peanut-butter brand, the bus company, the solidly mediocre NBC live event starring Allison Williams last year, and Michael Jackson’s ranch (not to mention the so-called syndrome, which describes commitment-phobic arrested development). At the moment, Matthew Morrison, who plays Barrie, is stage right in the 1,505-seat Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, practicing his dance spins. The previews of Finding Neverland are timed almost exactly to the wrap of Morrison’s six-year run as the earnestly encouraging Ohio high-school singing-club coach Will Schuester on Fox’s once-game-changing sing-along dramedy Glee. Morrison has traded his Mr. Schue sweater-vest for an Edwardian »

The Broadway version of Finding Neverland is finally taking flight. The new musical, which is based on the 2004 movie starring Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, began previews Sunday in New York City - and People got an exclusive sneak peek at photos from the show. The Harvey Weinstein-produced adaption of the Peter Pan backstory stars Tony nominees Matthew Morrison and Kelsey Grammer. The Glee actor, 36, stars in the leading role as Peter Pan creator J.M. Barrie, while the Frasier alum, 60, plays famed stage producer Charles Frohman. Directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus, the show tells the story of »

The awards world was hit with a bombshell on Tuesday afternoon after news broke that a "significant faction" of the Academy wants the Best Picture field returned to just five nominees. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the old guard feels the current system has made the honor less prestigious and are using the low ratings of last month's telecast as proof that the expanded field doesn't work. The issue may be addressed as soon as the next Board of Governors meeting on March 24. Let me take a breath and prepare my reaction while you ponder this Hail Mary of a justification for a moment. (O.K., I'm ready.) Y'all crazy. First, let's discuss the "prestige" argument, shall we? In 2009 the Best Picture field was increased to 10 nominees because of the horror (i.e. embarrassment) that the out-of-touch membership had snubbed popular and critically acclaimed blockbusters such as "Wall-e" and "The Dark Knight. »

Matthew Morrison said goodbye to Glee when the cast and crew completed shooting the series finale on Saturday night. The sad news is Glee is over, but the good news is Morrison no longer has to make a weekly commute between Los Angeles and New York, where he has been rehearsing his new Broadway musical, Finding Neverland. "I've been doing back and forth for the last month doing about three days of rehearsal for Finding Neverland and coming here and doing the last couple of episodes of Glee. I haven't had a day off in a month and my wife—the only time I can see her is if she comes on set when I'm here in L.A.," he told me at The Weinstein Company's pre-Oscar party, where he performed the »

What will March bring to Netflix? Plenty of great TV shows, some killer recent and classic movies, and a slew of highly anticipated Netflix Originals.
First off, there's more amazing TV coming to Netflix in March than we've seen in the past six, with new seasons of "Mad Men," "Glee," and "Archer" coming to the streaming service. What's more? The complete series of "3rd Rock From the Sun" (Yes!) and "A Different World" are also being added. For the latter, I plan on queueing up some "very special episodes" that remind me of my childhood. Also, Marisa Tomei was on it. Remember?! In addition to the shows you know, some spankin' new Netflix Originals are being added: Tina Fey's half-hour comedy "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," starring "The Office's" Ellie Kemper, and "Bloodline," a dramatic thriller starring Oscar-winner Sissy Spacek.
In terms of movies, Netflix is not disappointing. Recent releases »

Better late than never on filing a report from yesterday's Spirit Awards and pre-Oscar festivities, I guess. It was a late night, Harvey Weinstein and his peeps rounding things out with a big soiree/dinner that drew to a close around midnight, so my bed was far more enticing than my keyboard when I got back to the homestead. The Spirit Awards are generally my favorite event of the season, largely because the imbibing starts early and the attitude is super lax. But it's also my own personal bow on things (as I always happily steer clear of the Oscars), saying final goodbyes to colleagues and talent I've interacted with consistently over the season. And given that Film Independent was apparently looking to break the record for most commercial breaks in a single awards show, I was able to bounce around and catch up with just about everyone I was hoping to. »

With the 2015 Oscars coming up this weekend, we go back ten years to see if the 2005 awards still hold up today...
It was during an interview with Mark Kermode that I asked him how long someone really needs to gestate on a film, and come up with a proper review. "About ten years", he said. I get his point. Each awards season, it's about, at best, what feels like the best film right then. Not the one that settles over a period of time, or shows you new things each time you watch it. But the one that you watched once, and affected you once. It's the only way, anyway, I can think of why A Beautiful Mind won a Best Picture Oscar.
This weekend, then, is the Academy Awards once more. And I thought it'd be worth rewinding ten years, to see whether the Academy's choices on February 27th »
Finding Neverland is one step closer to making its Broadway debut. The musical, based on the 2004 movie of the same name starring Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, began rehearsals Monday in New York City. Director Diane Paulus, who previously directed Broadway's Pippin and Hair, brought the new cast and creative team - which includes choreographer Mia Michaels and producer Harvey Weinstein - together on Feb. 2 to do a read-through for the first time. “The first day of rehearsal is always a thrilling day," Tony winner Paulus tells People. "To bring everyone together, including our extraordinary cast, led by Matthew [Morrison] and »

Harvey Weinstein is one of the most powerful, outspoken, and controversial men in Hollywood. The studio executive who launched Miramax and The Weinstein Company is a passionate film lover, a master promoter, a ruthless Oscar campaigner, and just about everything else you need to be in order to make it to the top in the business. Even if you find what he does unscrupulous or the content he produces not very good, it is hard not to admire the man for how successful he has made himself, no matter how frustrating it might be. Weinstein recently had a chat with Deadline, covering a wide variety of topics from the Netflix series "Marco Polo" to the troubles with the upcoming Broadway musical adaptation of Finding Neverland to Oscar campaigning to his reputation of recutting films, giving him the nickname "Harvey Scissorhands." I had no idea the Weinsteins were behind "Marco Polo »
