you better bring it, "BRING IT ON THE MUSICAL!"

Andy Blankenbuehler (Tony Award-winning choreographer of In the Heights) will direct and choreograph the new musical, which boasts a book by Avenue Q Tony winner Jeff Whitty, music by In the Heights Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda and Next to Normal Tony winner Tom Kitt and lyrics by High Fidelity's Amanda Green. Tony Award winner Alex Lacamoire (In the Heights, Wicked) will serve as orchestrator, arranger and music supervisor. a developmental regional production is expected in early 2011, with a national tour to follow.

do i really need to go off on my "too many movies being turned into second rate musicals rant?!" and don't get me started...the plot is all why the same name as the hit movie?! they are just using a recognizable's a total tourists trap. if it's a new story, give it a new name!

no, now let's be positive, this have the potential to be amazing...just think of the choreography possibilities alone. and who will they get to be Torrance Shipman, Kerry Butler? after all she doesn't age, she can play a high schooler for another 15 years or so. my secret wish is Kristen Bell...mmm now let's just take a moment to think about her in that cheerleader outfit.

into the woods? into my pants!

after seeing pics of Tony-nominated director and playwright Mois├ęs Kaufman's unconventional staging of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Into the Woods, all i can think is sex! this show looks nothing but hot, if it's not a shirtless "big bad wolf" (Claybourne Elder seen here,) or the "project-runway-like" costumes, it's Brynn O’Malley looking stunning as a strawberry blonde, oh GOD, she be hot!
now she has one forest i pray to get to go "into" someday...wait?

the production plays Kansas City (i know right, Kansas City!) Rep through Oct. 4, if you're there, why not go...and sit in the back row if you need too ;)

see more of these pics, click here!

OH EM GEE! here is a video of this!!! yeeees

You would think that GWWR would deserve a fat promotion...

Hey Ya'll!

With the recent closing of 9 to 5, the company and producers of the show put together this adorable "sing-along" video featuring cast, crew, producers, fans, and even Miss Parton herself singing only to the title tune. It couldn't be more heartwarming.

This show will be missed.

Ellen sings "And I Am Telling You..."

Jennifer Hudson appeared on the Ellen show for her recent segment "Shower Concerts", singing the classic Dreamgirls hit.

Soon, however, it became clear that not only was J. Hud not going, but neither was Ellen.

See her take over and actually wail at some parts here:
