What got Tina Turner to come out of retirement?
October 19th, 2017 under Remember?, Stage. [ Comments: 1 ]


For the better half of last century, Tina Turner was everywhere. Then when the calendar turned to the year 2000, she announced her retirement when she was just 60 years old. Since then she has barely been seen.

But then 2 days ago, she came out of retirement for the launch event of her bio musical Tina that will debut next year at London’s Aldwych Theatre to announce who will be playing her. The legendary singer said that they found the next Tina in Adrienne Warren, and she is not kidding when you hear the actress sing. Not only did we hear Warren sing, we also heard Miss Tina belt out a few bars of River Deep – Mountain High. It might have been 17 years since we heard her sing live, but she sounds exactly the same. That and she looks freaking phenomenal at 77. She could still be any man’s Private Dancer and that’s What’s Love Got To Do With It!

Jan Brady is Elyse Keaton
April 4th, 2017 under 70s, Stage, The Brady Bunch. [ Comments: none ]


I don’t know if you heard, but Family Ties is getting the stage musical treatment this Summer according to Broadway.com. The production will make its debut this June in Ohio, Dayton not Columbus like the ’80s sitcom, but having it in the same state is still pretty groovy.

Talking about groovy, what can make it even groovier? How about Eve Plumb, best known for playing Jan Brady on The Brady Bunch, is playing the matriarch Elyse Keaton. The role that was originated by Meredith Baxter. Proving everything in Hollywood is related, I think!

I wonder how Marcia, Marcia, Marcia feels about this, I am sure she is just as excited as we are.

Josh Hartnett wants to be Tom Cruise
July 2nd, 2008 under Stage. [ Comments: none ]


Not only does Josh Hartnett want to be Tom Cruise, he is Tom Cruise. Well he will be playing Tom Cruise’s role in the West End stage version of Rain Man starting next month according to What’s on Stage.

Hollywood pin-up Josh Hartnett is best known for films such as Pearl Harbour, Black Hawk Down and The Virgin Suicides. Commenting on Rain Man, which marks his professional stage debut, Hartnett said: “It has always been my intent to work on the London stage. While I’ve had many opportunities, it was only when I read the complex and charismatic character of Charlie Babbitt that I knew the time was right. I feel very fortunate to make my London bow … Can’t wait to live and work in London, a city I adore!”

Josh Hartnett a Hollywood pin-up? I don’t know how Rain Man will translate on the stage, but with Josh Hartnett as the lead I don’t think very well. I think he would be better suited playing the role of Raymond aka Rain Man.
Saying something positive, at least it is not a musical version of Rain Man.

Joan Collins and Linda Evans still fighting like it’s Dynasty

Joan Collins and Linda Evans said that their hatred portrayed in Dynasty was just for TV when they started working on Legends, but now that the show is over seems like the hatred was for real. Collins said that when the were fighting on stage that Evans went overboard and actually injured her according to Page Six. Collins' people told the paper, "Joan ended the tour with a sprained knee, a scar on her hand and almost choked to death. Evans kicked Joan's hand so hard that she now has a permanent scar and cannot wear a ring on her right hand. And she spent five weeks in therapy when Evans took it too far and allegedly pushed her off the stage." Meanwhile Evans people had this to say,  "Joan Collins is the biggest [bleeping] sack of [bleep]. She's the single most unprofessional actress working in Hollywood Linda Evans hurting somebody? I find it unbelievable." The producer of the show sided with Evans and said that Collins side of the story is "absolutely untrue Evans pushed Collins off stage. During one scene, Collins had to shove Evans onto a couch and Evans' "foot came up and touched Joan's hand . . Joan then refused to do [it] . . . She was afraid of it. So we had her push Linda with the end of a mop," he said. But Sprecher said he was unaware of Collins' injury or need for therapy." And Joan being Joan responded by saying this, "I'm surprised they are saying this. It was an unpleasant experience which is now over and the people you refer to are thankfully out of my life." I guess we won't see these two working together anytime soon.

Rosie O’Donnell has some dining suggestions for Donald Trump
April 24th, 2007 under Donald Trump, Elizabeth Taylor, Stage, The View. [ Comments: none ]

Rosie O'Donnell was speaking at the Matrix Awards yesterday when she grabbed her crotch and told Donald Trump to "Eat Me!" according to Page Six. She is just so classy. I just wish the two of them would get over the feud because it is beyond sad at this point. I mean since they started fighting we found out who is the father of Dannielynn. What will make these two grow up already because now they both are going below the belt…literally.
