Broadway Box Office Dips To $26M; Daniel Radcliffe Returns To NYC Stage

Broadway Box Office Dips To $26M; Daniel Radcliffe Returns To NYC Stage
Daniel Radcliffe, Cherry Jones and Bobby Cannavale arrived on Broadway this week in The Lifespan of a Fact, pulling in solid box office for four preview performances during a week that saw most productions dipping or hanging steady.

In all, Broadway’s $26,309,336 box office total for Week 17 (ending Sept. 23) was down 8.5% from the previous week, with attendance of 223,438 off about 13%. Even so, about 87% of seats were filled.

The slips were due, in part, to fewer shows (27 productions compared to the previous week’s 29). Gone for good were Carousel, Gettin’ The Band Back Together and Spongebob Squarepants; Springsteen On Broadway was on hiatus (back Sept. 26).

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child donated 1,500 tickets on Sept. 23 to Lumos, the organization founded by J.K. Rowling to rescue children from harmful orphanages around the world. The contribution was apparent in the production’s 22% drop in box office.

Watch: Miley Cyrus Sings ‘On My Own’ in Uncovered Audition for ‘Les Mis’ Movie

There is a parallel universe in which Miley Cyrus was cast as Éponine in the 2012 feature film adaptation of “Les Misérables.” And this universe isn’t far off, either. In fact, the former “Hannah Montana” star actually auditioned for the role via a good old-fashioned self-tape—which you can watch right here. In the just-resurfaced video, Cyrus takes on the anthemic “On My Own,” singing the ballad completely acapella. The part, of course, did not ultimately end up in Cyrus’ hands, but instead went to then-newcomer Samantha Barks, who is currently starring as Vivian in the musical adaptation of “Pretty Woman” on Broadway. And Cyrus, as you may know, is doing just fine. All’s well that ends well in post-revolutionary France, right? Inspired to audition yourself? Check out Backstage's casting calls!

Toronto Film Review: ‘Papi Chulo’

  • Variety
Toronto Film Review: ‘Papi Chulo’
In “Papi Chulo,” a scrupulously low-key and unassumingly ingratiating dramedy about the friendship forged between a thirtysomething Anglo TV weatherman and a middle-aged Mexican migrant day laborer, Irish-born writer-director John Butler turns an outsider’s eye to the dynamics of interrelationships that cross socioeconomic divides in L.A., and makes it clear, without hammering home his point too insistently, that one can intelligently and entertainingly illuminate universal verities about basic human needs by focusing on specific details of place, class, and sexual orientation.

Sean, played with an admirable fearlessness by Matt Bomer, is the weatherman, a usually chipper professional who has an on-camera meltdown — something more than a crying jag, but not quite a cry of anguish — while forecasting another day of hellish heat in and around L.A. Ordered to take a sabbatical by a news director who’s worried about tarnishing the station’s “brand,” Sean finds himself

‘Homecoming’ Review: Julia Roberts Shines in Sam Esmail’s Exciting and Eerie Homage to Classic Conspiracy Thrillers — Tiff

‘Homecoming’ Review: Julia Roberts Shines in Sam Esmail’s Exciting and Eerie Homage to Classic Conspiracy Thrillers — Tiff
From its opening shot onward, Sam Esmail’s “Homecoming” is designed to throw you off-kilter. What appears to be a palm tree in the night sky is quickly revealed to be a decoration inside a fish tank. That fish tank is within an office, and that office is within a compound. But where’s the compound, and what are they doing in there? Who’s watching and why? Subversion runs rampant throughout Esmail’s joyfully paranoid first four episodes, as the “Mr. Robot” creator builds a universe where keeping your head on a swivel is as instrumental as acknowledging what’s right in front of your face. Forged from inventive long takes and killer audio cues, the upcoming Amazon original series feels like Alfred Hitchcock has made a new mystery, and it’s a deliciously good time.

Based on the podcast of the same name (and written for the screen

Roles Burt Reynolds Turned Down, From Bond to Solo

Roles Burt Reynolds Turned Down, From Bond to Solo
Burt Reynolds, who died on Thursday at the age of 82, had a hugely impressive career… but even with his starry resume, he turned down some of the most famous movie roles of all time.

“They all would’ve changed my career, without a doubt,” Reynolds said of all the roles he turned down that went on to be huge successes in his memoir “But Enough About Me.” “I would’ve been offered all kinds of roles. You know, how much can you do in a ‘Smokey and the Bandit?'”

Below, a list of every painfully successful leading role Reynolds turned down over the course of his 60-year-long career.

James Bond

One of Reynolds’ biggest regrets was not playing James Bond. His excuse? That the public wouldn’t accept an American playing 007 — and he said as much to producer Cubby Broccoli, who offered him the role after Sean Connery retired.

Mrs. Doubtfire Is Back And Is Going To Be Singing And Dancing Across The Broadway Stage

Hellooooooo! It looks like Mrs. Doubtfire — the nanny who's really a manny (played by Robin Williams) desperate to be close to his kids after he and his wife break up — is back. Or will be. And he/she/they are headed for the Broadway stage in a musical adaptation of the 1993 film. Somehow, we're not surprised. After all, why should Mean Girls, Aladdin, The Lion King, Pretty Woman, Frozen, and the forthcoming King Kong have all the fun on stage?

  • Deadline
Pretty Woman: The Musical has set a house record at Broadway’s Nederlander Theatre for the second time in three weeks, with its second week in originals scoring $1,155,322, the best ever number for an eight-show week at the 97-year-old venue.

Broadway Box Office Wilts A Bit To $36M: ‘Harry Potter’, ‘Pretty Woman’, ‘Hello, Dolly!’ Withstand Summer Heat

Broadway box office wilted a tad in the summer NYC heat, slipping to $35,465,012 for Week 12 of the season. That’s a 5% drop from the previous week.

Some of the slip during the week ending Aug. 19 can be attributed to one fewer production on the boards – The Boys in the Band is gone. Attendance for the 30 shows was 264,673, a stout 90% of capacity.

Two productions opened during Week 12: The going-strong Pretty Woman: The Musical, nabbing $1,065,917 and Sro attendance, and the scrappy Gettin’ The Band Back Together, eking out $175,334, a tiny 22% of gross potential. Even at a $36 per ticket average, Gettin‘ filled only 64% of its seats.

Springsteen On Broadway held its spot as priciest seat, with average tickets of $508 no hindrance for the 4,729 fans who filled all the seats. Total b.o. for the five-performance week was $2,406,003.

Most of the 31 productions were down a bit from the previous week. Examples: Aladdin was

At last, an Oscar for popular film. Because who needs another The Shape Of Water? | Hadley Freeman

Many of the most enduring films of the past few decades remain ungarlanded

When I was a kid, my parents had an amazingly impressive collection of video cassettes, from Bing Crosby’s White Christmas to Shoah (nothing like a nine-hour Holocaust documentary to make these cosy nights in go with a swing). But my favourite tape was The 65th Anniversary Of The Academy Awards: Oscars Greatest Hits! I was not so much obsessed with this video as possessed by it, and to this day my go-to karaoke song is Billy Crystal’s opening number from the 1991 Oscars: “Ghost! Can it win this lottery?/ Ghost! Made me take up pottery.” Do you want to know when Cher took Val Kilmer to the Oscars as her date? How pissed off Barbra Streisand looked in 1992, not to be up for best director for The Prince Of Tides? Then you, my friend, have come to the right columnist.

‘Pretty Woman’ Broadway Cast Recalls Performing for Julia Roberts
Samantha Barks didn’t watch Julia Roberts and Richard Gere’s iconic “Pretty Woman” in preparation for her starring role in the new Broadway musical adaptation of the 1990 film.

“It’s so hard to watch it because it’s such a beautiful, iconic performance,” Barks, who plays Vivian Ward, the hooker with a heart of gold, told Variety on Thursday at the musical’s opening night. “You can’t do your own thing for a minute and breathe. We’re lucky we have so many songs to sing, which adds new layers to the character.”

Though Roberts didn’t attend opening night at the Nederlander Theatre, she came to a performance while the show was running previews. The part of Vivian Ward launched Roberts into superstardom, so naturally, Barks said it was “petrifying” performing for her.

“Luckily, I didn’t know she was in the audience,” Barks recalled. “They made a speech [after the performance] like,
