The Divas...
It's way too early to be thinking about Christmas but if you're an early shopper please know that Glen Hanson,an illustrator I just love,has designed a Liza Minnelli holiday ornament.Thanks to Boy Culturefor the heads up.The proceeds go to Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS.If you want one you purchasehere.

In other Broadway news,a special tribute to Elaine Stritchis coming on November 17th with performances by (are you sitting down) Patti Lupone,Betty Buckley,Christine Ebersole,Michael Feinstein,and my personal favorite of the theatrical divas of a certain age,Bernadette Peters

So who is singing what?They're keeping that a secret naturally.

Saw American Psycho in London and it was TERRIBLE.It didn't help that it starred a (30 minute late and smug about it) couldn't sing even with some sort of stage-autotune and 3 other guys singing with him Matt Smith.But the songs themselves were just embarrassing.(The "women are singing now"song was basically just the word Versace over and over again,if I recall.)

Pssssst.Have you seen the press photo(s) of Emma Stone as Sally Bowles?

October 17,2014 | Unregistered CommenterHayden W.

I'll miss Elizabeth Peña.I'ts hard out there for Latin American actresses if they don't look like Sofía Vergara.

October 17,2014 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

You know how sometimes there's entertainment news that just isn't for you,you should probably just ignore,but it still gets you irrationally angry anyway?That's me and the second season of "Top of the lake".I full-on hated that series,so much,everything about it from conception to the performances.And the idea of trying to filter out another round of congratulatory reviews is already making me itch.

Um,but to end on a positive note: good for Ezra Miller.Bank those franchise checks,then make weird choices.

It totally doesn't go with my woodsy "put a bird on it!"decor,but I want that Liza ornament!

October 17,2014 | Unregistered CommenterSuzanne

In other very sad news,Misty Upham of Frozen River and August: Osage County has passed away.Not a lot of details at this time.

October 17,2014 | Unregistered CommenterCharles

Also,I was listening to top 40 on Spotify and there is a song that contains the lyric:

"I swear she's destined for the screen.Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you've ever seen."

I had to rewind.Dead.

October 17,2014 | Unregistered CommenterHayden W.

I to will miss Elizabeth Peña.She was so good in LoneStar.I was always happy to see her name in the opening credits.

When are you going to take down that mess that was Murder..........?I think 4 episodes must be a record for a series to jump the shark.

October 17,2014 | Unregistered CommenterHenry

Charles-I was sad to hear about Misty Upham.It appears to be suicide.She was a wonderful actress,very memorable in both "Frozen River"and "August: Osage County."

October 17,2014 | Unregistered CommenterRaul

HAYDEN -- omg.i heard that song the other day too and i was like WHAAAAA it's a good song and now i forgot what it's called.

RAUL & CHARLES -- they're saying suicide but Juliette Lewis on twitter today is saying it's murder and Misty was concerned about being murdered.yikes.evolving story surely.

Ornament looks like Liza inThe Act...

October 17,2014 | Unregistered CommenterPaul Outlaw

NATHANIEL - This new trailer for Unbroken is only the second one.It feels like there's been a lot of them because they play the first trailer with EVERY DAMN MOVIE.In saying that,I actually like this new trailer more than the first one and I actually thought the first one was okay.

October 17,2014 | Unregistered CommenterDaniel Armour

I still remember Elizabeth Pena from "Rush Hour!"She was remarkably brassy in that movie.
