Page Six reported today that Jennifer Lawrence went to see 1984 on Broadway (starring Olivia Wilde and Tom Sturridge) on Monday and was sick during the performance. Apparently this show is so intense that audience members have been fainting midway through. Full Story

So I try to stay away from clichés, mostly because they’re hacky, but also because I don’t find them super useful. Usually they don’t articulate much about the situation – unless they’re super insightful, and then they do, but make me seem like a hypocrite.  All this to say that the phrase ‘trust your gut’ keeps coming to mind as I read about the plans for the Jagged Little Pill Musical Full Story

Alert, Oregon Trail Generation*, this is not a drill. Fox has announced that RENT will be its next live musical (along with A Christmas Story, which I like, but… never thought of as a musical?). Take a second with that. Call back every angst-filled lyric you memorized and practiced and tearfully belted out in your room, and defiantly four-part–harmonized in the hallways at school when you were surrounded by your friends and the sniffs that ‘drama kids are so annoying’ couldn’t touch you. Full Story

We’ve debated and gone back and forth, but I think the verdict is we are going to delay the taping of our #ShowYourWork podcast until after the weekend.  Because the Met Gala is coming, and because Lainey and I are going to be in New York this weekend, and because there is too much good material coming at us and we need to delay our argument about who should win ‘Do I Need To Care About’. Full Story

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Tina Fey is a choir nerd. It’s most clear to me from intense readings of Bossypants - she mentions that she was in audition-only choirs and it was a big deal, in a way that is clearly joking-but-not-joking. You get the impression that even though she’s an extremely successful writer and actress with a deeply enviable show business career, that she might be just as proud of her choir cred. Full Story

I guarantee the number one question Lin-Manuel Miranda is asked by people who don’t know is “When is Hamilton going to be a movie?” He always answers “Oh… eventually”, which is polite because it doesn’t say what I would say, which is ‘what, being the most successful Broadway debut ever and breaking all kinds of records isn’t good enough for you? You need it to go to the multiplex? Do you not remember what happened to RENT?” Once again, this lack of diplomacy is sometimes indicative of why I am me and the Uber-successful are them. Full Story

I don’t think I even need to show you this video to make you appreciate the hotness of this combination. Jake Gyllenhaal will be performing on Broadway in Sunday In The Park With George. Full Story
