'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).

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

1 October 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

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, »

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 »

A decision by the Broadway League not to honor Joan Rivers with the traditional posthumous tribute afforded to deceased stage celebrities has the theater community up in arms on Twitter. »
