Aisle View: The 2016 Ten Best List
Huffington Post - 2 months
2016: The Best New York Theatre Once again, the New York theatre world has had a banner year, with exciting plays, musicals and revivals on Broadway and off. In a continuing trend, many of the selections are transfers from non-profits or new productions from Broadway non-profits. Little matter; the productions below for the most part transported their audiences. Let it be added that two top flight musicals which are likely to appear on most or all of this year's Ten Best Lists -- Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 and Falsettos -- have been omitted herein due to conflicts of interest. (I recently coauthored, with Dave Malloy, "The Great Comet: The Journey of a New Musical to Broadway"; and in 1990 coproduced the original production of William Finn's Falsettoland.) Thus, both are officially unlisted but highly recommended -- and you only have until January 8 to see Falsettos, so what are you waiting for?

What To Watch On Netflix, Part 3: Overlooked Gems
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Now that I've got the Classics and the Pretty Good Bets lists out of the way, welcome to my list of Netflix's Overlooked Gems. This was the Netflix recommendation roster I had the most fun compiling (it's not every day that having watched so much cult TV comes in handy). Adding to the fun: This list comes with a cherry on top, in the form of some exciting news. HuffPost TV can exclusively reveal that all five seasons of the much-loved NBC spy drama "Chuck" will be available in the U.S. for streaming on Netflix on Nov. 1. "Chuck" is a good poster child for this list, which is all about shows with fervent but smallish fan bases -- these are all shows that, for one reason or another, deserve wider attention but in many cases weren't big hits when they first aired. It truly brings me joy to recommend these kinds of shows to people who may be unfamiliar with them; if there's one thing I've become convinced of in my time as a TV critic, it's that there is a great deal of enjoyment to be ...

'Thor: The Dark World': Two Of The Warriors Three Take To Battle In Character Posters
MTV News - over 3 years
by Brett White Even with a ton of posters already revealed, "Thor: The Dark World" still has a few more up its chainmail sleeve as evidenced by today's double debut. Two members of the Warriors Three now have character posters, leaving poor Hogun apparently bringing up the rear. The pair of posters show off Ray Stevenson's Volstagg and newcomer Zachary Levi as Fandral. The former "Chuck" leading man took over for Josh Dallas, who played Fandral in 2011's "Thor" and could not journey to "The Dark World" due to his commitments as Prince Charming on ABC's "Once Upon A Time." You can check out both posters after the jump, as well as a new featurette focusing on "Thor: The Dark World's" Icelandic locales. In addition to the aforementioned warrior Hogun, we still haven't seen a poster for bad guy Kurse or Thor's mother Frigga. We also haven't seen a poster for Jane Foster's returning human pals Erik Selvig and Darcy Lewis. For more info on "Thor: The Dark World," check out ...

Austin Winsberg's Best and Worst Blind Dates
Forward - over 3 years
First dates are always problematic. That’s especially true when it’s a blind date. The inherent tensions of the situation form the humorous backdrop for a new Broadway musical, “First Date.” Aaron (Zachary Levi) is a little uptight; Casey (Krysta Rodriguez) is less so. It does not look like this is a match made in heaven. Or is it? The play was written by Austin Winsberg with music and lyrics provided by his friends, Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner. “The idea came from us, three Jewish boys who dated a lot of girls, and what we thought of the dating world,” Winsberg told The Arty Semite. This is the first play for Winsberg, whose background is mostly in film and television (“Jake in Progress,” “Still Standing”). He spoke to the Forward about his blind date experiences, dealing with some “mean spirited” reviews and his own bar mitzvah — in Israel, at age 19. Curt Schleier: Did you meet your wife on a blind date? Austin Winsberg: I did, actually. My best friend growing ...
