Lin-Manuel Miranda & Emily Blunt Take You Through 22 Classic Musicals in 12 Minutes

Watching James Corden, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Emily Blunt donning bad wigs to mug their way through a 12-minute salute to 22 movie musical “classics” is a bit reminiscent of watching the three most popular counselors ham it up during an overlong summer camp skit. Their one-take performance was part of Role Call, a regular feature of the Late Late Show with James Corden. Usually, this fan favorite is an excuse for Corden and a megastar guest—Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Samuel L. Jackson—to...

93-Year-Old Dick Van Dyke Talks About His Dancing In The “Mary Poppins” Sequel

“The minute I heard I was going to do a little number, that sold me,” Van Dyke tells PEOPLE in the latest issue out Friday. “And I thought I could contribute by just being a little bit of a reminder of the original. And I think it turned out well. I got to jump up on a desk and do a dance number. It surprised everybody, but nobody was as surprised as I was.” – People

Me and My Girl - A Musical From Yesterday Comes Roaring To Life

 Reviewed by Judd Hollander In this world of message musicals and important themes, it’s nice to know that every so often a vehicle comes along whose only purpose is to offer a good time. The 1937 tuner Me and My Girl, which was recently resurrected for an engagement as part of the Encores! series at New York City Center , is such a work. With a storyline paper thin; musical numbers that have often have nothing to do with advancing the plot; dusty jokes which were old when the mu...

Exit Lines: Hello, Divas!

Let’s talk around the star of Hello, Dolly! for a moment. I don’t have much to compare her with: other than clips of Carol Channing performing her signature role (something she did in four Broadway productions, starting with her Tony-winning turn in 1964 and all the way up to 1995, when the 97-year-old trouper was a relative chorus gal of 75), I only know the 1969 movie. “The whole archaic big-musical circus here surrounds a Happening–Barbra Streisand–and it’s all worth seeing in order to see he...

Mary Tyler Moore obituary

Actor who used TV sitcom for her portrayal of an independent modern womanThe actor Mary Tyler Moore, who has died aged 90, spent decades as “America’s sweetheart”, her time in that role reflecting changes in American society and the turmoil of her own private life. Her outwardly bubbly personality and trademark broad, toothy smile disguised an inner fragility that appealed to an audience facing the new trials of modern-day existence.

Lobsters, rabies and wardrobe malfunctions: stars on their school plays

Michael Ball did Mother Goose with two black eyes and Tim Pigott-Smith lost his petticoat … as schools gear up for Christmas shows, stars share their memoriesI played Bert the chimney sweep in Mary Poppins when I was 11: the brush was taller than I was, I had braces, short rolled up trousers. The “chim chim-in-ey” song? That was my big number. I went to an expat school in Hong Kong and I was the only Indian girl in the class. So there I was, with this very strong Indian accent, trying to copy Di...
