[quote]Woody Allen adopting his beloved comedy for Broadway
I think he's had quite enough fun with adoptions.
Another junkbox musical. Wonderful
Oh, shit! I didn't read the article first. I had no idea they were going to simply plug in old tunes. THAT is a terrible idea. The screenplay is ripe with material on which to base an original score.
BIG DEAL didn't work with old 20s and 30s tunes plugged in. This one probably won't work either. Too bad!
Patti L in the Dianne W role!
It should be Christine Ebersole.
"Patti L in the Dianne W role!"
Call me crazy but I'd prefer an actress who's the age Dianne was when she made the movie almost twenty years ago.
Rather than an actress who is the age Dianne is now.
Jennifer Tilly in the Jennifer Tilly role.
Movie is great, hopefully this will be good. DON'T SPEAK!!
Actually I was kidding about Patti. I think Christine is a great choice.
"Bullets Over Broadway" is the funniest movie ever, well, except for sometimes in mind it ties with "Best in Show."
Love Jennifer Tilly in 'Bullets' and Jennifer Coolidge in 'Best.'
Patti LuPone for the part of the rehearsal table!
Wiest will be either Chenoweth or Mullaly.
Broadway is not that imaginative and wants big names.
No one beyond Maplewood, NJ knows Ebersole.
[quote] She auditioned and Woody rejected her.
People dont really audition for his movies. From what I have read he will ask someone if they are interested in being in his film, they almost always say yes, and he just gives them the script and tells them when to show up. However, many people approach him and ask him if they can be in something. I'm pretty sure he turns more down than he accepts. I can totally see LuPone approaching him and asking that. And I can also see him saying, "oh sure, that would be great" and then he never called her.
There isn't a single reason to sing in this story. Dumb idea.
Will it star Glutton Foster?
Hope Woody gets Diane Keaton to return to Broadway for the Weist role. She'll act younger.
It's actually one of the less dumb ideas for a film/Broadway adaptation.
The action, the characters and the era are perfect for a new musical. If it avoids Chicago.
So who here has seen it?
"According to an Instagram from Heléne Yorke, who plays Olive, the show is making a minor change for its matinee audiences. In order to make the show more appropriate for student groups, the work 'f*ck' will be removed from Wednesday matinee performances."
I wonder if they'll also be removing the gag about Helene's character picking coins off the bar with her cooch.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
