Win This! 2 Tickets To See Ian McKellen & Patrick Stewart On Broadway In “No Man’s Land”

Win This! 2 Tickets To See Ian McKellen & Patrick Stewart On Broadway In "No Man's Land"

In addition to being the best of friends, Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are both legends of the stage, and they are sharing that stage in two productions on Broadway, “No Man’s Land” and “Waiting For Godot” (both plays also star Billy Crudup and Shuler Hemsley). Ami and I had the opportunity to go see “No Man’s Land” (written by Harold Pinter) last week and loved it. Stewart and McKellen star as two elderly writers who meet at a pub and then spend the rest of the evening drinking (a lot) and talking. Their dude bonding is interrupted by the arrival of two younger men, and all of their connections to each other are exposed. It’s a play that uses language, word play and, most of all, timing to inspire laughter. And we’re giving away two tickets to see “No Man’s Land” to one lucky reader! Prize details, rules and entry form are after the jump! Keep reading »

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]
