Famous friendships seem to be theme of the day. We started with Princess Kate’s alleged friend drama. And Ginger and Scary Spices’ friendly sex. And Adele and JLaw at the club. So here are a few more quick picture posts of celebrity friends. There will be two or three to follow this one. Here are Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Sturridge going for a walk in New York on Saturday. Full Story

Here are Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Sturridge last night in New York at The Public Theatre for their play(s) Sea Wall/A Life. The reviews I’ve read so far have been solid and both actors are being praised for their performances, with critics noting that Jake, who’s been focusing his attention on the stage as much as the screen the last several years, is “slowly building a theatrical resumé to match his work on film Full Story

“The sound you are hearing is not a technical problem. It is not a musical cue. It is not a joke. It is the sound of one man's mounting anxiety. I... am that man.” Okay, you’d have to be under a rock not to know Lin-Manuel Miranda’s voice and cadence even if you’ve never seen a minute of him onstage – so read the above line in his voice. Full Story

I’m trying to remember if I’ve seen Cats. I don’t think I have. If I ever did it was on a school field trip when I was a kid and I used to always fall asleep on field trips because I stayed up too late the night before watching Chinese soap operas.

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Michael Bae Jordan were both on Good Morning America this morning. Typing out full names is a lot less fun than acronyms. They did interviews separately but when I saw the photo set of them each arriving at the studio, I started to think about how these two men are on the exact opposite spectrums of my celebrity crush radar. Full Story

Really, the title should read ‘Jesus Christ Superstar Edition’. I love that so many people loved what’s being called the most successful live musical ever – Matt Zoller Seitz called it ‘a minor miracle’. But as much fun as everyone had watching, can they fully enjoy Jesus Christ Superstar if they haven’t awkwardly sung I Don’t Know How To Love Him as an 11th-grade drama assignment, or sung ‘what’s the buzz, tell me what’s a-happening’ over and over on a school bus trip with a bunch of friends and thought you were the awesomest? Part of that feeling is a little grumpiness that I – and, I assume, other musical theatre lovers – bring to the rapturous affection for the show. Full Story
