Interview With Louise Pitre, Mama Rose in Chicago Shakes' <i>Gypsy</i>
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Director Gary Griffin knows his Sondheim. And he's found his muse in Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Having presented two highly-praised and award-winning productions of the celebrated composer/lyricist's works in the past four years, including a haunting Follies and a spine-tingling Sunday in the Park with George (not to mention his multiple other Sondheim-related projects in CST's space, including an airy-yet-grounded A Little Night Music back in 2003), it's with high anticipation that we await two additional efforts: Gypsy, a landmark American musical in which a young Sondheim wrote the lyrics and helped shaped the show, and Road Show, Sondheim's latest work which premiered, though with a different title and structure, at Chicago's Goodman Theatre back in 2003. Gypsy, which recently began preview performances and opens on Thursday, February 13, plays in CST's Courtyard Theater, and stars Canadian stage veteran Louise Pitre. I had the opportunity to talk with Ms. Pitre, who makes her CS ...

Huffington Post - about 4 years
UPDATE: Glanville has denied the report on her Twitter account, writing: "Im reading us weekly &amp; im laughing out loud, eddie was broken up wen I met him,I never kissed Rick Fox, Ive never slept with harry.Come on!" A publicist for Glanville had no comment on the story at this time. PREVIOUSLY: By now, everyone knows that Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes met on set of 2009's Lifetime movie "Northern Lights" while still married to other people -- and carried out an elaborate affair. But not everyone knows that Brandi Glanville, Cibrian's ex-wife and much-vocal critic of Rimes, had had her own affairs during their eight-year marriage. That's if you believe the latest cover story from Us Weekly, of course. The magazine claims that the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star, 40, cheated on Cibrian, 39, several times -- including sleeping with a "Hollywood playboy six weeks after having Eddie's baby." A source told the publication that "Brandi loves to play the victim, but ...
