Stage Door: <i>Noises Off, Our Mother's Brief Affair</i>
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The revival of Noises Off, one of the funniest Broadway shows, is killing them at the American Airlines Theater. A crackerjack cast and razor-sharp timing are key to Michael Frayn's backstage farce, a bedroom comedy that sends up theater, needy actors and behind-the-scenes hijinks with glee. It opens as a wacky road company is rehearsing Nothing On at the Weston-super-Mare theater in Britain. It's a silly romp, with actors starring as lovers (Megan Hilty and David Furr) in a country house, assumed to be empty. Its owners (Kate Jennings Grant and Jeremy Shamos) live in Spain to avoid taxes, so when they illicitly steal into their home, they barely avoid meeting each other. Throw in Andrea Martin as a soap-opera actress playing a kooky housekeeper and exasperated theater director (Campbell Scott) juggling both a complicated love life and a fraught production, and it's all chaos, all the time. Farce depends on split-second timing, especially since Frayn's play, particularly in ...

Artistry in Dance: 'American Dance Machine' & 'Noises Off'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
We struck gold twice in a matter of weeks -- my daughters, Lea and Sara, and I -- intoxicating artistry in dance at a pair of performances spanning the old and new year. Just on the cusp of New Year's Eve, we caught the final show of American Dance Machine for the 21st Century's December run at the Joyce Theater; a three-o'clock matinee that packed the wallop of Times Square and a ball at midnight. The following weekend, we laughed ourselves senseless at a matinee of Roundabout Theater's revival of Noises Off at the Selwyn Theatre on 42nd Street (which Roundabout persists in calling the "American Airlines Theater" in an act of sacrilegiously poetic injustice). What a blast, though, two disparate shows with one thing in common: How they moved! Where American Dance Machine literally recreates the enchanting choreography of great Broadway musicals gone by, Noises Off reconstitutes the slapstick choreography of Michael Frayn's delirious three-act paean to the perils of simply making ...

Theater: 'Skeleton Crew' X-Rays Detroit; 'Noises Off' and Some Laughter On
Huffington Post - about 1 year
SKELETON CREW *** out of **** NOISES OFF ** out of **** but *** or *** 1/2 if you've never seen it before SKELETON CREW *** out of **** ATLANTIC THEATER COMPANY Playwright Dominique Morisseau triumphantly concludes her Detroit trilogy with Skeleton Crew, a look at a fading automobile plant in the winter of 2008. Obama has become President, but the car industry is reeling, something that's readily apparent for the shift workers of one of the smallest remaining factory lines in town. Times are tough and getting tougher: shifts are being cut, everyone is a paycheck or two away from the streets and Reggie has made the leap from factory floor to supervisor. That's enough responsibility to leave him stranded: management still sees him as a black man with one foot on the floor while most of the people on the floor see him as the Man, always trifling with them over minor infractions no matter how good their work on the line may be. Is life tense? Always. Michael Carnahan's excellent ...

Aisle View: Splendidly Delirious

Photo: Joan Marcus Michael Frayn's Noises Off, when it premiered back in 1982 in London (with Patricia Routledge) and when it opened in 1983 at the Atkinson (with Dorothy Loudon), was farce comedy par excellence; we didn't quite realize, in those days of Cats and Torch Song Trilogy, that broad, knock-down stage farce could not only be viable but classy. When the play was revived at the Atkinson in 2001--with a cast headed by Patti LuPone and Peter Gallagher, under the direction of Jeremy Sams--this playgoer found the results funny; or, rather, merely funny. Which was not enough at all. Far more problematic was Peter Bogdanovich's earlier, star-studded motion picture version, which suffered immediate death with critics and audiences. Slinging the prop sardines was Carol Burnett--still, in 1992, America's funniest lady--supported by the likes of Michael Caine and Chris ...

Tales of <i>The Hitcher</i> -- The Long Version
Huffington Post - over 3 years
It's odd the way the mind works, making random connections. The other day, I was flipping past the Hallmark Channel. That made me think of a Hallmark Hall of Fame production from 15 years ago that I only caught the end of and had been very impressed by. It was called The Love Letter and starred Campbell Scott and Jennifer Jason Leigh. (Based on a short story that, from what little of the plot I saw, made it seem along the lines of the later feature film, The Lake House, with a mystical love affair over many years through the exchange of letters.) I went on Netflix to rent it - but it was only available to save, not watch. Either it's not available on DVD yet, or Netflix hasn't gotten around to ordering it yet. Whoever's responsible, I hope they fix this. But I digress. But then, this whole long tale is pretty much going to be a long digression. So, I guess it fits. Anyway, all of this, from flipping past the Hallmark Channel to The Love Letter to Jennifer Jason Leigh got me to ...

Stephen King’s “The Shining” sequel is his best novel yet
Salon.com - over 3 years
What does it take to narrate a Stephen King novel? It might appear to be a straightforward enough job, given the vernacular twang of King's style, which seems made for the spoken word. But for all its lack of pretension, the emotional register of King's fiction swings wildly, and anyone narrating his longer books must be able to carry off snippets of popular songs, fragments of the characters' obsessive thoughts, the down-home repartee of working stiffs, interludes of ominous description or cosmic dread, and of course outright, extravagant horror. Not only that, but any King narrator will follow in the footsteps of some top-drawer talent: Sissy Spacek, Campbell Scott (a clammily claustrophobic reading of "The Shining"), Raul Esparza and John Slatterly are just some of the actors who have recorded his books in the past.

Trappist Monk's Love Life To Be Chronicled In New Movie
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Don’t sing love songs, you’ll wake my mother She’s sleeping here right by my side And in her right hand a silver dagger, She says that I can’t be your bride. — from “Silver Dagger” by Joan Baez (RNS) It was their song — the young, winsome brunette and her silver-pated lover with the sparkly eyes. “All the love and all the death in me are at the moment wound up in Joan Baez’s ‘Silver Dagger,’” the man wrote to his lady love in 1966. “I can’t get it out of my head, day or night. I am obsessed with it. My whole being is saturated with it. The song is myself — and yourself for me, in a way.” It’s a chapter of the thoroughly modern mystic’s life that is no secret to his legions of fans, detractors, and scholars of his prolific work, including the best-selling autobiography, “The Seven-Storey Mountain.” Now Merton’s complex love life is the subject of a forthcoming feature film, “The Divine Comedy of Thomas Merton.” Not long before his death in 1968 at the ...

'The Amazing Spider-Man': Should The Title Be Changed To 'The Serviceable Spider-Man'? (And 24 Other Urgent Questions)
Moviefone Blog - over 4 years
Next week, a new Spider-Man movie, titled, The Amazing Spider-Man will be available for your viewing pleasure in exchange for a somewhat unreasonable amount of your local currency. You like Spider-Man, but you're confused because this fourth Spider-Man film in the last ten years has nothing to do with the last three Spider-Man movies. To clear this up for you, we ask and answer every single question that you may have about The Amazing Spider-Man. Q: What's the biggest difference between this Spider-Man and the Spider-Man we saw in Sam Raimi's first movie? A: The aspect of Peter Parker's (Andrew Garfield) parents. I mean, we actually do meet them to start the film. But, sadly, that storyline seems to disappear early in the story. Q: Do Peter's parents seem nice? A: Well, kind of. I mean, they seem sad to have to abandon Peter with his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field). But, also, they are involved in mysterious science experiments, which results in their hasty ...

Marc Webb, 'Amazing Spider-Man' Director, On The Specter Of Sam Raimi
Moviefone Blog - over 4 years
"The Amazing Spider-Man" is director Marc Webb's second movie. This is not a statement on Webb -- whose first film was the almost universally loved "(500) Days of Summer" -- or "The Amazing Spider-Man," but more of an example of how quickly things can escalate in Hollywood. Though, Webb's ascent to franchise director didn't come without some problems -- well, three to be exact: the number of other Spider-Man movies released since 2002. Armed with a new cast that includes Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, a surprisingly honest Webb discusses the challenges of bringing everyone's favorite webslinger to life -- especially so soon after Sam Raimi's trilogy -- and reveals the one aspect of the original series of films that he refused to recreate. I was disappointed that Han Solo didn't make an appearance like he did in "(500) Days of Summer." I tried! They wouldn't let us. You know, in "(500) Days of Summer" with Han Solo, it's a Fox movie. And originally ...

Watch Over 20 Minutes of Behind-the-Scenes Footage from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN
Collider - over 4 years
Andrew Garfield is set to swing into action in Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man when it debuts July 3rd, but how did they make all that web-swinging action come to life?  Sony has released about 25 minutes of B-roll footage that shows the behind-the-scenes workings of the production.  Sure, this clip of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) being all heroic is nice and it's fun to watch Spidey swing away from pursuing cops with the greatest of ease, but the impressive "making of" footage really shows off the physical demand that was required.  It's definitely worth a watch for you web-heads who just can't get enough.  The B-roll also features Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Chris Zylka and some awesome stunt performers.  Hit the jump to check it out. Check out the B-roll footage (which gets a bit SPOILERY) below (thanks to a heads up by Comic Book Movie): One of the world’s most popular characters is back on the big screen as a new chapter in the Spider-Man l ...
