Fancy! Bruce Jenner Rocks Diamond Stud Earrings, a French Manicure and a Long Ponytail on Starbucks Run

3 December 2014 6:39 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Well, it is the most festive time of the year! Bruce Jenner, who launched a thousand headlines with his bright red birthday nails, opted for a classic French manicure before heading to the grocery store and Starbucks near his home in Malibu today, his well-groomed hands spotted by X17online as he carried his holiday red cup. And though both he and Kris Jenner filed for divorce in September, Kylie and Kendall's dad, who's been living in Malibu since he and Kris separated more than a year ago, continues to wear his wedding ring--as he did while catching a performance of Kinky Boots at Hollywood's Pantages Theater a couple days before Thanksgiving with friend Ronda Kamihira.  He's »

Finding a Waitress in Paris: Hollywood Takes Over Broadway

3 December 2014 4:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here to bring some Hollywood-tinged stage-bound news to give us a brief respite from the fun that is Hollywood awards season.

Cindy Lauper and Kinky Boots, Elton John and Billy Elliot, Alan Menken and Sister Act, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Bring it On, Marc Shaiman and Catch Me if You Can. It seems as if Broadway is on a movie-adaptation streak, no? Movie based adaptations have won seven of the past fourteen Tony Awards for Best Musical! This season alone will see Honeymoon in Vegas (based on the 1992 film of the same name), musicals based on Oscar-winning films Dr Zhivago (which recently announced its star) and Gigi (for what it's worth, its pre-Broadway engagement stars Vanessa Hudgens), as well as Bull Durham. Down the line we’re still expecting First Wives Club, Amelie, American Psycho, The Bodyguard and Ever After to make it to New York in the near future. »

Bruce Jenner Date, Kinky Boots Pda with New Girlfriend - Kris Jenner Boozed Up in La?

26 November 2014 10:28 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Bruce Jenner had a Nice Pda with his date Ronda Kamihira at the hit musical Kinky Boots at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood. The 51-year-old Ronda was first linked to Bruce last month. While Bruce and Ronda were hugging for photographers on Monday, the next night  his ex wife Kris Jenner was looking like she'd had a few too many drinks after a romantic dinner with her beau Corey Gamble. The 59-year-old 'momager' had headed out to Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood with her toyboy for the evening, and was smiling woozily as she stumbled out to her car. Kris is reportedly  head-over-heels in love with Corey. The reality TV star, who split from Bruce Jenner in October 2013 after 23 years of marriage, started dating Justin Bieber's 33-year-old road manager last month and "feels like she's 25 again."

Quick Impressions: "Madame Frou-Frou (Singing Voice)" in The Boxtrolls

25 November 2014 2:41 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

New Series! In Quick Impressions we'll be looking at the working actor in key movie scenes. Consider it a celebration of SAG card-holders everywhere and free advice for casting directors for people who aren't famous ...in some cases "yet". So many showbiz dreams wander around on every film set and are embedded in each frame of your favorite movies. 

Today, we're talking to actor Sean Patrick Doyle who sings the title song in The Boxtrolls in that great scene when Madame Frou-Frou takes the stage. Sir Ben Kingsley is the voice of Archibald Snatcher / Madame Frou-Frou so Sean Patrick makes like a modern day Marni Nixon.

Nathaniel: What is that process of "voice matching" and how did you get the part - it's so different from your other credits. 

Sean Patrick Doyle:  A cockney villain posing as a female Czechoslovakian show hall performer? - different indeed!  Laika had auditioned »

Bruce Jenner Steps Out With Kris' Best Friend Ronda Kamihira to See Kinky Boots—See the Pics!

25 November 2014 11:32 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Bruce Jenner got his week off to an exciting start with a night out on the town Monday. The former Olympian was spotted alongside pal Ronda Kamihira as the two caught a showing of Kinky Boots at the Pantages Theater. The 65-year-old reality star was seen with his new signature ponytail, a red dress shirt, slacks and sneakers and appeared to still be sporting his wedding ring. It does seem a bit odd that the E! star has chosen to keep his band on, considering that he and Kris Jenner split well over a year ago and both filed for divorce earlier this fall. However there was buzz that Kendall and Kylie Jenner's dad had moved on earlier this year with Ronda, who also happens to be Kris' best »

'Kinky Boots': Theater Review

14 November 2014 10:49 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The factory town of Northampton, about 67 miles outside London, prides itself on hard work and traditional values. In this home to numerous shoemaking facilities, business went bust for many, prompting one company in 1993, W.J. Brooks, Ltd., maker of fine leather brogans, to get a brand new bag: the boot. But not just any boot, red boots. "Red is for sex!" purrs Lola, the stereotypical yet irresistible drag queen at the center of Kinky Boots, a musical version of real-life events at Hollywood's Pantages Theatre. Lola represents a second chance for Charlie Price, who has taken over

This Week on Stage: New York, New York – a helluva 'Town'

20 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The randy sailors of On the Town are back in the Big Apple, and taking up permanent residence at the newly-renamed Lyric Theatre (where the beleaguered Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark was the previous tenant), with lots of dancing boys and girls courtesy of Smash's acclaimed choreographer Joshua Bergasse (keep your eyes peeled to EW.com for a future feature on him, by the way). In other news, "Big" Al Pacino is coming back to Broadway next fall in a brand-new play written expressly for him by master wordsmith David Mamet, about a billionaire taking a fateful phone call before semi-retirement. »

Looking back at The Avengers

13 October 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alex pays a fond return revisit to 1960s classic TV series, The Avengers...

Stylish crime fighting, despicable evil masterminds, a bowler-hatted old Etonian gentleman spy and a series of beautiful leather cat-suited, kinky-booted, no-nonsense heroines. The Avengers had all this and more. What began as a monochrome tape series in January 1961 ran the whole of the Sixties, becoming a colourful slice of period hokum, full of flair, wit and sophistication, yet with its tongue firmly in its cheek.

Always the perfect gentleman, John Steed was played by Patrick Macnee. Originally billed second to the late Ian Hendry, Macnee was still playing Steed over 15 years later when he was teamed with the youthful duo of Joanna Lumley and Gareth Hunt for The New Avengers in 1976. In the 1998 film, the role of Steed was given to Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurman played Emma Peel. I will say no more about the film. »

'While I Yet Live': Theater Review

12 October 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Billy Porter has long been known for his exuberantly over-the-top stage performances, the most recent being his Tony Award-winning turn in the hit Broadway musical Kinky Boots. The actor applies the same florid technique to his playwriting debut, While I Yet Live, a wildly overstuffed kitchen-sink drama that feels like it was shaped over decades of intense therapy sessions. One can only hope that it's not as autobiographical as it's purported to be, since the litany of family dysfunctions on display is enough to have fueled a dozen episodes of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Stage Door: "You Can't Take It With You" & "From Here To Eternity"

9 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Best Picture winners of 1938 and 1953, which were based on hit plays and best selling novels respectively, have moved to the stage. Let's take a look...

Annaleigh Ashford dances up a comic storm in "You Can't Take It With You"

You Can't Take It With You

For this Broadway revival of the classic 30s comedy, famously moviefied by Frank Capra back in the day, they've gone all star: James Earl Jones plays the tax-avoiding follow-your-dreams grandfather, Broadway vet and A+ comic actress Christine Nielsen (recently Tony nominated for Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike) is the easily distracted mother of a large brood, Rose Byrne her gorgeous daughter (essentially the 'Marilyn Munster' of this band of eccentrics), Fran Krantz from Dollhouse and Cabin in the Woods her rich would-be fiancee and Annaleigh Ashford, who has been on such a brilliant role these past couple of years with her ex-hooker lesbian receptionist on »

Broadway Box Office: Nathan Lane and James Earl Jones pack 'em in. Mia Farrow? Not so much

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

It's Only a Play doesn't open until this Thursday, but the backstage comedy revival is already minting money for its producers at Broadway's Schoenfeld Theatre. The star-studded show—featuring Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Megan Mullally, F. Murray Abraham, Stockard Channing, and Harry Potter alum Rupert Grint—grossed an impressive $1.25 million for the week ending Oct. 5, according to figures from the Broadway League. That's a remarkable haul for a non-musical—and actually exceeds the potential earnings for the venue (thanks mostly to premium tickets sales and high demand). Another star-studded revival, Kaufman and Hart's You Can't Take It With You (starring »

Firsts & Worsts: Annaleigh Ashford on 'Sex,' superstition, and Cyndi Lauper

Fresh off a fantastic turn on Showtime’s Masters of Sex, Annaleigh Ashford has settled back into a familiar home on Broadway, where the stage veteran is slaying audiences as horrible dancer (but excellent candymaker) Essie in the hit revival of You Can’t Take It With You.

Ashford appeared in a slew of familiar shows—starring as Glinda in Wicked, reviving Maureen in the Off-Broadway mounting of Rent, originating daughter of Delta Nu Margot in Legally Blonde, and earning her first Tony Award nomination last year for her standout performance in Kinky Boots. Now, she’s back on the boards, »

Broadway Dimming Lights for Joan Rivers

Joan Rivers is getting a Broadway goodbye.

Joan Rivers is getting a Broadway goodbye.

Five theaters will dim their marquee lights on Tuesday night in honor of the late comedian.

Jordan Roth, owner of Jujamcyn Theater, announced that his five venues will remember Rivers in this way, though the rest of the Great White Way decided that she did not meet the criteria for a traditional tribute. Those are set aside for people who have been "very active recently" on Broadway.

"We love Joan -- she was very supportive of Broadway and came to a lot of show openings -- but she hasn't acted on Broadway in 20 years," Charlotte St. Martin of the Broadway League told the New York Times of Rivers.

Photos: Remember the Life of Joan Rivers

Rivers, who passed away on Thursday, Sept. 4 at the age of 81, appeared on Broadway three times (1972, 1988 and 1994) and was a nominated for an Tony Award in 1994 for her role »
