  4. Bend It Like Beckham: The Musical Is a Real Thing!! For Real!!

    With Jamie Campbell Bower!!

    No shame alert: Bend It Like Beckham is one of my favorite girl-power movies of all time. Not only did it introduce us to young Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Keira Knightley, and Parminder Nagra, but it also had a great message of multiculturalism and acceptance. And a sweet soundtrack. Now Bend It is getting the full musical treatment at the Phoenix Theatre in London—and here's the opening number, UB2!

  15. Review: Into The Woods Delivers What Fans Want

    Sondheim’s beloved musical retains its dark charms.

    For many, bringing Into the Woods from stage to screen was something they never wanted to see attempted; and yet, the material just seemed too perfect for cinema to resist. When Into the Woods was announced, there was a sense of dread amongst fans, along with the excitement. Was it really a good idea to change Jack's age? Was Meryl Streep a good casting choice, after missing the mark with the music in Mamma Mia? Would a Disney movie actually keep the Wolf’s dark vibe?

  19. Watch The First Promo Trailer For NBC’S Peter Pan Live!

    And it's NOT terrible?

    I was all ready to good-naturedly laugh at this but... I kind of love it? Sure, it's just footage from the shooting of the last few "sneak peak" photo sessions, but something about the emphasis on all the behind-the-scenes production for the event struck me as weirdly charming. Which is fantastic, but I'm still fully prepared to laugh at Christopher Walken Hook when the special premieres on December 4th. That's happening . Let's just accept it.
