  1. Review: Bradley Cooper is The Elephant Man in Broadway Revival

    And now I am emotionally compromised.

    Previews for The Elephant Man have begun. After thirty-three years, the Tony Award-winning play has returned to the Booth Theatre, where the original Broadway production was staged. It is back -- and words can’t begin to describe how wonderful it is.

  2. Let It Gore: Awesome Middle School Students Stage Bloody Frozen Satire Based On Game of Thrones

    My sun and...line!

    Theater nerds will take what is theirs with fire and blood, pending approval from the PTA of course: for the second year in a row, Parkview Middle School in Jefferson, Indiana is going to spill a lot of red food coloring in the name of art.

  3. Stream Yourself Some Culture: Globe Theater Offers New On-Demand Player for Shakespeare Productions

    Yes that is Arthur Darvill. You're welcome.

    Back in the day, if you wanted to watch a Shakespeare play—or any work of Elizabethan-era theater, really—you had to schlep yourself over to a disgusting outdoor theater and, unless you could afford the exorbitant costs for seats. stand with a bunch of other plebes in a tightly packed standing-room-only gravel pit. But we live in the future now, where we can stream those plays directly into our eyeballs via magic screens! Isn't life amazing?

  4. Benedict Cumberbatch Looks Like He’s About to Leap Out Of My Computer Screen and Kill Me

    Turn that frown upside down, Richard III!

    Benny, I... I didn't mean it when I said you're being cast in so many things and talked about so much that I'm maybe getting a little fatigued of your presence. I swear. And I've never used the Benedict Cumberbatch Name Generator; I don't even know what that is! Stop looking at me like that.

    Hey there, Nebula.

  6. Things We Saw Today: A Discworld Cake, Complete With Giant Turtle

    Note: not a full-size replica.

    I can't say that I've ever wondered what the Great A'Tuin tastes like, but apparently it's filled with chocolate mint grasshopper cake. (by Art2Eat Cakes, via That's Nerdalicious!)

  7. It’s Official: J.K. Rowling Will Write a Staged Prequel to Harry Potter

    Of course, it's sadly devoid of Mauraders.

    We all knew that J.K. Rowling wasn't going to be able to stay away from her beloved wizarding franchise for very long after it ended, but we all sort of thought that she'd be too busy with Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them to get much else done. Apparently, however, she's looking to bring the Boy Who Lived to live theater as well.

  8. J.K. Rowling Is Developing a Harry Potter Prequel for the London Stage

    This is just like magic!

    When the last Harry Potter movie came out in 2011, no one expected there to be plans for a new film series within two and a half years, never mind a new film series and a new play.* And yet that’s exactly what's happened. In September Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was announced, and now we’ve learned that J.K. Rowling is developing a Harry Potter play for the West End. Accio tickets to London! *It makes sense, because dolla dolla bills y’all, but I refuse to be cynical about more Harry Potter.

    In Which We Make A Terrible Pun

    Yesterday we reported that the adorably whimsical French film Amélie is being turned into a musical. But despite the fact that it's not even been written yet, said musical already has found an impassioned critic in a quite unlikely form: The film's director. Don't hold back, Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Tell us what you really think.
