Summertime and the livin’ is simple — unless you make a buck on Broadway.
William Ivey Long, six-time Tony-successful costumer for “The Producers,” “Hairspray,” “Gray Gardens,” “Crazy for You” and probably the whole lot even sooner than Helen Hayes was once in vitro, is now costuming multi-award-successful manufacturer/director Hal Prince’s musical bio.
Hal Prince gave us “Phantom of the Opera,” “West Facet Story,” “Cabaret” and doubtless even preceded William Ivey Lengthy. His productions have had global audiences so his coming “Prince of Broadway” — within the speaking and trying five years — recently tested in Tokyo.
Says Long: “Now Not a revue, it’s a compendium segueing from this to that.”
because of this what?
“Everything theatergoers will love. Vignettes from the ones nice productions. Snippets of all his shows. a fire-break out scene from ‘West Aspect Tale.’ Lamppost scene from ‘She Loves Me.’ Glorious, glamorous garments.”
First preview is Aug. THREE. The Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
Vintage-shaped she’s no longer!
i’m informed— or no less than i am whispered — that vintage-faculty J.Lo believes in antique-time values like vintage-fashioned real love and old-style marriage and can stay doing it till she will get it right like they did in the old days.
And i am informed that she and A-Rod, who believes in some of these similar proper issues — like what tablet medical doctors say you must be fair in pronouncing you took — may wed.
i’m also instructed her real true love — still, as of late, yet, even now — is Ben Affleck. And that they have been in fact scheduled to marry (which might’ve made him this vintage-fashioned girl’s No. FOUR husband) however that he come what may got away.
I, your humble servant, document handiest what i am advised.
Fancy golfing to include precise king
Please try to concentrate. International golfers are invited to play this week at the king of Morocco’s Royal Golfing Membership, that is in Cabo Negro, which is somewhere in his usa’s northern turf.
And that is his Royal Tournament for which His Majesty will schlep there himself individually to wait.
Landau’s large nod
The overdue Martin Landau. Up for Easiest Aiding Oscar in ’89, he introduced daughters Juliet, a dancer, and publicist Susan.
Their mommy actress Barbara Bain stated: “I’m not going. We haven’t been together for years.”
And what Martin then told me was once: “This nomination intended so much. These closing years I wasn’t getting major motion pictures. i was being introduced junk. I considered this nomination had a religious aspect. I now move round thinking undoubtedly and conserving an excellent idea. My occupation and i are taking one step at a time.”
Whilst he won in 1995, the place did he stay the statuette? “Over my TV set.”
EXCUUUSE me and with apologies to CNN — Continue No News — are we able to please . . . please . . . just forestall talking Russia . . . and perhaps please start speaking The Us?!
Said to me on a boulevard that’s most effective in Big Apple, kids, simplest in Ny.
