Frozen Broadway

When it comes to a huge hit like Frozen, it should come as no surprise that Disney just won’t let it go (I know, I’m sorry). The House of Mouse has already delivered an animated short called Frozen Fever that played with Cinderella last year and there’s already a Frozen 2 in the works, but without a release date to look forward to yet. But that’s not all Disney has planned for Frozen.

Disney has officially announced that a Broadway adaptation of Frozen is in the works, for an expected opening in the spring of 2018. In addition, an animated holiday special is in development for release in 2017. Find out more about the Frozen Broadway adaptation and holiday special below. Read More »

Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight is now in theaters. While the film has been a tad divisive amongst the filmmaker’s fans and critics, both Jacob Hall and I absolutely adore the film. In fact, I’m seeing it for a third time tonight, and I can’t wait to once again unravel Tarantino’s rewarding narrative. It’s simply great storytelling, and as he’s stated before, it would work just as well on the stage. Now, he’s making the prospect of The Hateful Eight stage play sound more likely.

Read Tarantino’s future plans for the material after the jump.

We won’t get another Avatar movie until 2017 — and that’s assuming James Cameron actually meets his deadline this time instead of blowing past it yet again — but in the meantime there are other ways to get to Pandora.

The Kroll Show - John Mulaney - Nick Kroll

When Kroll Show was still on Comedy Central, one of the best recurring segments was a little prank show called Too Much Tuna, featuring Gil Faizon (Nick Kroll) and George St. Geegland (John Mulaney) — the stars of Oh, Hello, another recurring segment on the sketch comedy series. And now these two charismatic Upper West Side artists are bringing their talents Off Broadway.

The Bad The Sad and the Broken Hearted

More than likely you know Martin Starr from his fantastic supporting work on HBO’s comedy series Silicon Valley, or maybe from his appearances in movies such as Knocked Up, Save the Date, This is The End and Veronica Mars. But now you can see a completely different side of his talent with a special live show that Starr is directing in Los Angeles.

The Bad, The Sad and The Broken Hearted is described as a comedy western radio play, and it will unfold exclusively in Los Angeles at the iconic Steve Allen Theater on Hollywood Boulevard. Trust me when I say that this will not be a show you want to miss, especially since the chances of seeing some of Starr’s co-stars and friends from Freaks and Geeks pop up are very high. Read More »
