shakespeare in love broadway

As much as the trend of turning popular movies into Broadway musicals (“Once,” “Hairspray,” “Billy Elliot,” “Matilda,” “Ghost,” maybe “The Princess Bride”) makes me worry about that we’ll never see another original idea ever again, I can’t say I don’t enjoy the adaptations. The latest movie to see its moment under the stage lights is … drumroll please … “Shakespeare in Love.” Get excited, world! Keep reading »

Is “The Princess Bride” Broadway’s Next Big Hit?

Is "The Princess Bride" Broadway's Next Big Hit?

I have a confession to make. I’ve never seen “The Princess Bride.” I know, I know. By the time I realized it was a cultural obsession, I’d narrowly missed about a million group viewings of it, with plans always having changed at the last minute. I kind of feel like I’m missing out on some national treasure, but maybe I should just keep putting it off at this point and wait to see it live, because the movie is about to be adapted for the stage.

Alanis Morissette "Jagged Little Pill" Broadway musical

Cue the “‘you oughta know’ I’ll be getting tickets” jokes! Alanis Morrisette is developing her 1995 album Jagged Little Pill into a Broadway musical. NYmag.com reports that workshopping the show will begin in 2014 and the songstress is working on new arrangements for songs on the album, as well as new songs for the show. No word on what the plot will be. Her breakup with “Full House” star Dave Coulier that fueled “You Oughta Know” and made us all imagine what Uncle Joey looks like getting a blowjob in a theater?  The music industry sleazebags who inspired “Right Through You”? Rain on your wedding day? The rage encapsulated by lady alt-rockers in the mid’90s? I was skeptical when I first read the news, but you know what? I think a Broadway show based on Jagged Little Pill has the potential to be awesome.  [NYmag.com]

Earlier this month, Lizzy, a seven-year-old corgi, got fired from a West End production of “The Audience” starring Helen Mirren after she failed to make her mark in “16 consecutive preview performance nights.” She was replaced by a younger rival named Coco. (The corgi, I mean, not Helen Mirren.)

This week, on the other side of the pond, another four-legged Broadway star got the axe. Keep reading »

Will “Pushing Daisies” Head To Broadway?

Bryan Fuller‘s been dropping hints of upcoming Pushing Daisies news for the past few months, and we have been clawing at our computer screens for just as long screaming “TELL US!” The “Pushing Daisies,” “Dead Like Me,” and “Mockingbird Lane” producer swore it had nothing to do with a return of the cancelled-too-soon show to television, or of a jump to the big screen. So what does that leave? Broadway, apparently!

Fuller revealed this little tidbit in a recent interview with TV-scooper extradordinaire Michael Ausiello while promoting his upcoming television reboot of “Mockingbird Lane.”

According to Fuller–who holds that it’s too soon to reveal anything too concrete, as these things have a way of changing through the stages of development–the project is working to reunite as much of the “Pushing Daisies” cast as possible. Read more…
