New Gloria Estefan musical will conga to Broadway in fall 2015

18 August 2014 2:13 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Be warned: The rhythm is gonna get you.

Well, not to-night but next fall, when the Gloria Estefan bio-musical On Your Feet! hits Broadway. The production colors the life and rise-up of the seven-time Grammy winner/Miami Sound Machine frontwoman, as well as the success of her longtime husband and musician/producer Emilio—who has no less than 19 (!) Grammys to his name—on their road to stardom.

Even better: If you think you got the means to let the music move your feet, the production is holding an open casting search called “Reach Gloria” in Miami and NYC this September, »

Coherence: deploys twisty sci-fi concepts to warp the almost-clichéd dinner-party soap opera into a horror story of the human condition in the face of quantum philosophy [my review] [iTunes Us] Locke: we say things like, “Oh, I’d watch that guy read the phone book,” and this is almost that, except it really is absolutely riveting, and that’s no joke; a tour de force for Tom Hardy [my review] [iTunes Us] The Amazing Spider-Man 2: suffers badly by comparison with the cogent, witty Avengers flicks — this feels like a campy Saturday-morning cartoon left over from the 1970s [my review] [iTunes Us] The Quiet Ones: there aren’t many outright scares here, and when they do come, they are curiously circumspect, but the old-fashioned Hammer Horror atmosphere is appealingly spooky [my review] [iTunes Us] The Railway Man: almost entirely »

Spend an Evening with Tony Award Winner Lena Hall and Backstage University!

5 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Backstage news »

Tickets for this amazing opportunity are now available! Backstage University is thrilled to welcome one of the biggest breakout stars of the Broadway season, Tony Award winner Lena Hall. Though Hall has been seen both on and Off-Broadway in roles including Nicola in the Tony Award-winning musical “Kinky Boots” (original cast), and starred in the award-winning “The Toxic Avenger” at New World Stages, her transformative turn as Yitzhak in this season’s hottest ticket, “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” has been all anyone could talk about, and it won her the 2014 Tony Award for best featured actress in a musical. Now Lena Hall is coming to Backstage University for one night only. Hall will sit down with interviewer Jewel Elizabeth on August 11 at 7 p.m. at Theatre Row Studios to discuss her career, her pathway to success, performing with her band The Deafening, and what it is like to actually win a Tony. »

Here's What's New on Netflix for August 2014

30 July 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us, you can't wait for the first day of every month, because you know that Netflix is going to add a ton of new movies and TV shows. You refresh your account over and over again at midnight, hoping that those titles listed in the "Recently Added" section update with something new and exciting rather than the same ol' titles you've been staring at for the last four weeks.

Well, lo and behold, we've gathered the most exciting movies and TV shows being added to America's most popular streaming service, straight from Netflix themselves.

"Rocky" fans will be pumped to know that the first five boxing flicks (sorry, "Rocky Balboa" fans) will be added August 1, joining other '70s, '80s, and '90s movie favorites "Face/Off" (slow-motion doves!), "Mad Max" (apocalyptic leather!), "Spice World" (spice up your life!), "The Birdcage" (Calista Flockhart was in this, »

The Weinstein Company To Release One Chance On Yahoo Screen Before It Hits Theaters

21 July 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

On the night of June 9th 2007, a new television reality show called ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ went on air in the UK. On its first ever broadcast, a shy, unassuming man opened his mouth to sing the famous operatic aria ‘Nessun Dorma’, delivering a beautiful, stirring rendition that would change his life from that moment forward.

Swept up in the contagious emotion of Giacomo Puccini’s stunning aria, and the unlikely figure with crooked teeth and diluted confidence who had crooned it for them, the show’s three judges – Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan – stared in awe at what they had just witnessed, while the audience of 2,000 at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff erupted in a standing ovation.

Britain was instantly won over by Paul Potts, who was then working as a manager at the Port Talbot branch of The Carphone Warehouse, and followed him on his »

Season premiere review: 'Masters of Sex' - 'Parallax'

13 July 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Masters of Sex" is back for a new season. I reviewed the start of the new season on Friday, and I have specific thoughts on the season premiere coming up just as soon as I can buy an extra $100 worth of french lingerie every month... "We have the work." -Virginia "Parallax" is an episode that tries very much to live up to its title by giving us different angles on the immediate aftermath of Bill's declaration at the end of season 1. We revisit Bill and Virginia's night together multiple times, each time getting a new perspective, until we can fully understand the nature of this new phase of their relationship. That puzzle structure, with the same scene shown multiple times at different lengths, is one of those stylistic flourishes where the payoff really has to be worth the repetition, and here it absolutely is. As we hear more and more »

The Essential Cyndi Lauper: Ranking Her Top 20 Songs

22 June 2014 7:58 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Ever since she sauntered down that street in the morning light in 1983, Cyndi Lauper has been a part of the pop culture landscape. Did you you know she’s 3/4 to an Egot? With an Emmy for Mad About You, a Grammy for Best New Artist in 1984, and a Tony Award last year for Kinky Boots, all she needs is an Oscar to compete the showbiz Holy Grail.

Here’s one of her crowning moments last year, as she became the first solo woman in Tony history to win for Best Original Score.

Always an ally, she’s one of the gay community’s staunchest supporters, and in another of her crowning moments, was responsible for reuniting a Daytime TV Supercouple. She even got Noah to dance … albeit like Frankenstein swatting at a bee … but is there anything this woman can’t do?

Today is Cyndi’s 61st birthday, so what »

16 June 2014 1:52 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

In the post-Tony week ending June 15, box office climbed 30 percent to a Texas-size $1.23 million, according to figures from the Broadway League.

Tonys: 'Hedwig' Star Lena Hall Talks Drag Kings, Rock Star Names and Neil Patrick Harris' Insults

8 June 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Hedwig and the Angry Inch is headlined by one incredibly recognizable name, Neil Patrick Harris, and another new one: Lena Hall. But in fact, it's a clever shortening of Celina Carvajal, a star of last season's Kinky Boots who, for this breakout role, formally adopted the stage name she uses in her rock band, The Deafening -- once she realized that she could. Story: Tonys: How the 'Hedwig' Team Turned Neil Patrick Harris Into a Bona Fide Rock Star "It was getting complicated!" she tells The Hollywood Reporter of juggling two names.

Broadway box office: 'Aladdin,' 'Raisin,' and 'Beautiful' are the season's hottest pre-Tony tickets

2 June 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

As we sneak up on this Sunday’s Tony Awards, the Broadway season’s box office winners are quickly emerging. And the biggest new hit appears to be on a magic carpet ride. For the week ending June 1, Disney’s Aladdin led new shows with nearly $1.2 million in ticket sales, according to figures from the Broadway League. The animated-film-based tuner is playing to full houses and nearly 88 percent of its potential gross in the cavernous 1,723-seat New Amsterdam Theatre. Right behind Aladdin, though, is a rare non-musical blockbuster: the Denzel Washington-led revival of A Raisin in the Sun, which »

Poor Hollywood A-Listers: Tons of big movie stars got snubbed by the Tonys

29 April 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York (AP) — It was a brutal Tuesday morning for some A-list stars on Broadway. Snubbed for Tony Award nominations were Denzel Washington, James Franco, Zachary Quinto, Michelle Williams, Orlando Bloom, Ethan Hawke, Zach Braff, Billy Crudup, Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig. Daniel Radcliffe struck out for his third consecutive Broadway show. Neil Patrick Harris, who won a nomination for his brilliant performance in the punk-rock show "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," said he was surprised by the final list. But he's been a Tony host and knows from experience the process is often rough. "Having been the host in previous years, it's always interesting and surprising," he said. "It's a small group of people that nominate and you're never quite sure what they're responding to. That being said, it does get to showcase the talents of people who often don't get their moment in the spotlight." One of the »

TheBacklot Interview: Spencer Liff On “Hedwig,” “Sytycd” and…Single?

29 April 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

If there were any questions or doubts as to whether today’s Broadway audience would take to a revival of John Cameron Mitchell’s landmark musical, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, those early reservations were laid to rest this morning when the show, starring Neil Patrick Harris, garnered 8 Tony Award nominations.

Besides a Best Actor in a Musical nod for Nph, the show also received nods for Best Revival of a Musical, Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical (Lena Hall), Best Director (Michael Mayer) and nods for Best Scenic Design, Best Costume Design, Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design.

And who helped Harris find his footing in the high heels he wears as the transgender titular character? None other than one of our favorites, choreographer Spencer Liff, who talked to TheBacklot recently about shaping the musical, the early reception during previews and (now »

Bryan Cranston & Neil Patrick Harris get Tony Nominations, Denzel Washington left out

29 April 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York (AP) — The musical "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder," a comedic romp in which a poor man eliminates the eight heirs ahead of him for a title, nabbed a leading 10 Tony Award nominations on Tuesday. Nominations were spread out for most other shows, reflecting the lack of a juggernaut this year. "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," a cult off-Broadway hit about a transgender East German performer, stars Neil Patrick Harris and won eight nominations, while "After Midnight," a musical celebrating Duke Ellington's years at the Cotton Club nightclub, got seven, tied with "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical" and a British revival of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night." Bryan Cranston won a nod for playing Lyndon Johnson in "All the Way," and Woody Allen got one for turning his film "Bullets Over Broadway" into a musical. The nominations also made waves for snubbing some big names, including Denzel Washington, »

Meme: Clippers Owner Racist Tapes Called Legitimate, “Sytycd” Australia Defies Gravity, E.T. Trapped In New Mexico Landfill

28 April 2014 4:55 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Kinky Boots wants you to Just Be, Japan’s First Lady marches in Pride, can Maine bring us our first Lgbt governor?

An attorney for Donald Sterling’s girlfriend V. Stiviano says that the tapes of the Clippers owner going off on a racist tirade are legitimate, but due to pending litigation in which she’s a witness, they won’t be commenting further other than to say that she didn’t release the tapes to the media.

As for the players, in their game with the Warriors on Sunday, they dropped their shooting shirts in center court and wore their jerseys inside out with the logo hidden for warmups, adding black armbands.

Speaking of the comments, the longer version of the tape is out, and it’s worse than the original. Sterling is heard saying about his players, many of whom are African-American, “I support them and give them food, »
