Exit Lines: “Cyrano”

Peter Dinklage, relieved of his Game of Thrones duties, should make an excellent Cyrano de Bergerac, the dashing if proboscis-challenged hero of Edmund Rostand’s 19th-century classic. And The National, hitmakers in the realms of roots rock and alt-country, should be able to pull off a musical. So why does Dinklage in the Off Broadway musical Cyrano miss, and by more than by a nose? For one thing, his Cyrano is missing his nose. It’s a major element for a Cyrano to forgo, which set me to wonderin...

‘Blindspotting’ TV Series Spin-Off Starring Jasmine Cephas Jones Coming to Starz

It was a major oversight when Carlos López Estrada‘s electrifying 2018 debut feature Blindspotting went virtually ignored by last year’s Academy Awards. But perhaps Estrada’s charged film on race and gentrification, which starred and was written by Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal, will earn the audience it deserves on the small screen. A Blindspotting TV spin-off series is being developed by Starz, with Jasmine Cephas Jones set to reprise her role as Ashley from the film. It’s unclear whether Dig...

Blindspotting has been a labor of love for over a decade. It shows in the end result. Director Carlos López Estrada‘s hard-hitting drama, which also has a lot of laughs, has been drawing strong reactions ever since it premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival. “Sharp, stylish, and sincere, Blindspotting may hook you with its flashy wordplay and slick visuals, but this is a hilarious and vital movie of the moment that’s burning with empathy,” our own Ben Pearson wrote in his revi...

Broadway ‘Hamilton’ actress and Valencia native Mandy Gonzalez comes to Irvine

Most musical theater actors, if given a week off from whatever current show they’re in, will gladly take that time to cocoon, hibernating out of the limelight. Not Mandy Gonzalez. The young musical theater star and pop artist decided to use her week’s vacation from the Broadway run of “Hamilton” to work – specifically, to do a self-designed solo cabaret show as a platform to promote her new album “Fearless,” which was released in 2017.

‘Spamilton’ hilariously spoofs the lows, hits the heights at the Kirk Douglas Theatre

Whose revolution is it, anyway? America was founded on rebellion, religious and political. It’s still in a revolution, whether moving forward or backward. Theater has been full of revolution, otherwise we’d be watching shadows on cave walls. But these days, the theater is feeling the effects of a giant in the sky. No, not that one. “Hamilton” changed what’s mainstream in lyrics, in audiences, in ticket prices. It came about when Lin-Manuel Miranda dreamed a dream, bringing rap to Broadway, bring...
