20 Greatest Movie Musical Songs Ranked

There's nothing like a good movie musical number. The combination of music, dance, and narrative thrust build something vibrant and alive in a way that, when done well, reflects cinematic storytelling in its purest form. Characters are given permission to express their emotions in ways that they are frequently unable to do: song frees them from the strictures of polite conversation, and lyrics capture their true feelings where dialogue often falls short. And what's fascinating is that although t...

It's Life.

When I write Director's Notes for the program, for each of our shows, I always try to imagine what about this particular show might be the most challenging for the audience to understand or key into. We often do very smart, unconventional, complex shows that demand a lot from our audience. Then again, Life itself is quite often challenging and complex and demands a lot from us. Art reflects Life,, right? We often do very confrontational shows, sometimes very vulgar or intentionally offensive sh...

Crossroads by Jonathan Franzen review – spiritual successor to The Corrections

The pastor’s family at the heart of Franzen’s sixth novel – a bravura examination of the mores of liberal America in 1971 – are his most sympathetic creation to dateThe characters in Jonathan Franzen’s sixth novel exist in that much-disputed no man’s land between hip and square, in the culture wars of 1971. Since The Corrections, 20 years ago, Franzen has made himself the modern master of that fundamental driver of the 19th-century novel, the understanding that all happy families are alike, but ...

Sex? Check. Drugs? Yes. Rock ‘n’ roll? Obviously. Regrets? Michael Des Barres has none.

Michael Des Barres never made plans, but always knew what he was doing. “No plans — instinct everything,” says the 73-year-old English-born actor and rock singer, who landed in Los Angeles in the ’70s and never left. “What I’m trying to say is that I’ve never thought anything through. I’ve just done it.” Des Barres is talking ostensibly because a documentary on his life, “Michael Des Barres: Who Do You Want Me To Be?” arrives on home video this month. “I leave school – this abusive, absurd, crim...

Hear the people sing! Musicals are back – and they’re retuned for a new generation

We all had our ways to cope with isolation. For me, it was music from Evita, Hamilton, and more. Now as UK venues reopen, a flood of diverse, fresh shows and revivals are due on stage and screenHamilton was the perfect peppy soundtrack to a gloomy mid-February weekend spent painting the hall, Evita injected drama into wet Tuesdays, Jesus Christ Superstar became a balm in anxious times, and walks around wintry Hackney marshes were spent with Willy Russell’s ill-fated Blood Brothers.In a discombob...

Steve Zahn’s teenage obsessions: ‘De Niro in The Deer Hunter was acting on a different level’

The actor and comedian discusses his early days in musical theatre, his love of U2 and his passion for fly fishing The first album I bought was Glass Houses by Billy Joel. Then I went to the record store with my dad and he bought Jesus Christ Superstar and I bought the soundtrack to Patton by Jerry Goldsmith. My first concert is kind of embarrassing: Hall & Oates in Minneapolis. I was a late bloomer to concerts. My wife went to AC/DC when she was, like, three. Now I’m like: “If it’s live, I’ll g...

Tim Rice: 'Evita was a bonkers idea'

As the great songwriter prepares to take Jesus Christ Superstar on a 50th birthday tour, he talks about penning hits, his idea for a new musical – and drinking from Lloyd Webber’s Georgian wine glassesTim Rice had a hunch the Oscar was in the bag.

But, as he walked on stage that night in 1995, after Can You Feel the Love Tonight from The Lion King won, the tall, slightly awkward-looking...

When ABBA Wrote Music for the Cold War-Themed Musical, Chess: “One of the Best Rock Scores Ever Produced for the Theatre” (1984)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfalfT1Iqmg Chess is amazing. The simplicity of its characters and plot (capture the king!) can be appreciated and understood by children; the complexity of its tactics can consume an adult life. Despite its medieval origins—and stumpers for us moderns like the strategic importance of a bishop on the battlefield—chess remains as much a potent allegory for power and its tactics as it was 1,500 years ago in India when it was called “chaturanga.”  The game ha...
