Broadway Gets Twisted

19 December 2012 5:30 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

New York -- Some classic Broadway show tunes will soon be getting the headbanging treatment.

Dee Snider, lead singer of the `80s heavy metal band Twisted Sister, will be headlining the nightclub 54 Below this week, taking on such standards as "Mack the Knife" and "Cabaret."

The appearance Thursday and Friday night builds on Snider's new CD, "Dee Does Broadway," where he tackles a dozen theater standards, including "Music of the Night," "Big Spender" and a blistering rendition of "Mack the Knife."

"I was true to the songs but I found the rock in them, I didn't force the rock into them," says Snider, settling into a cozy banquette dressed in his trademark all black with his long wavy hair in a ponytail.

Snider will cram a 10-piece band onto the stage of Below 54, a new nightclub known more for performances by its Broadway belters like Norbert Leo Butz, Sherie Rene Scott, »

Best Baseball Movies To See Before The World Series

23 October 2012 5:44 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it’s a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and it could be again.” – Field Of Dreams.

No truer words were ever spoken about America’s Pastime. Baseball began this past Spring with 30 teams vying for the chance to become World Champions and now it’s been decided. The San Francisco Giants and Detroit Tigers will play ball in the 2012 World Series. Before the final hurrah of nine innings, stats, bases and 3 strikes you’re out, Wamg has compiled a list of the Best Baseball Movies. Did we leave any in the dugout or are there some that should be sent to the showers? »

Announcing the 2012 Primetime Emmy Nominees!

19 July 2012 10:13 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Jimmy Kimmel and Scandal's Kerry Washington stepped up to the podium this morning to announce the nominees for the 64th Primetime Emmys (Nick Offerman was scheduled to announce with Washington, but had to cancel due to travel issues, and luckily, Kimmel was on hand, still in his pajamas). It's not a surprise that a lot of Emmy favorites are back again, with Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Modern Family scooping up tons of nods, but there's a lot of fresh blood in here too. I was pleasantly surprised to see a few names make it off our Emmy wishlist, like American Horror Story, Max Greenfield, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. As for new series, Lena Dunham's Girls racked up noms for comedy series, directing, writing, and acting, and Downton Abbey is all over the drama categories. Now that the nominees are out, the official speculation can begin! The 64th Emmy »

Iconic 'Whatever Lola Wants' Composer Is Dead

22 June 2012 9:23 AM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

New York -- Composer and lyricist Richard Adler, who won Tony Awards for co-writing songs for such hit Broadway musicals as "The Pajama Game" and "Damn Yankees" and who staged and produced President John F. Kennedy's birthday celebration featuring a breathy Marilyn Monroe, has died. He was 90.

Adler died Thursday at his home in Southampton, N.Y., his widow, Susan A. Ivory, said.

Some of Adler's biggest songs are "You Gotta Have Heart," "Hey, There," "Hernando's Hideaway," "Whatever Lola Wants," "Steam Heat," "Rags to Riches," and "Everybody Loves a Lover."

Adler staged and produced several shows for U.S. presidents, including the unforgettable 1962 extravaganza for Kennedy at Madison Square Garden where Monroe sang "Happy Birthday."

He and Jerry Ross wrote the music and lyrics to "The Pajama Game," a frothy comedy about labor-management relations at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory, which won the best musical Tony in 1955.
