Night at the Museum 2 filming?

After walking through Central Park tonight, we came out onto Central Park West at the American Museum of Natural History and there was a film crew all over the front entrance. It was pretty cool. We saw a monkey, some Huns, and the "son" riding his bike along the front sidewalk... apparently in a huge hurry. Some pics are below for your entertainment. Enjoy!

Check out the review that UNDERWEAR: A SPACE MUSICAL got from nytheatre.com. It's fantabulous!

Here's a brief preview but you can read the whole thing here!

"Mind control. Robots. World domination. Attractive men and women in their skivvies. That was enough to send 12 of my friends into an emailing frenzy to be the one to join me for Underwear: A Space Musical at FringeNYC. However, if you're not hooked already, perhaps it's worth mentioning that this fluffy, campy, zany, hysterically funny pop tuner is also really, really, "blastin'"-ly good. . . Don't let Underwear: A Space Musical blast off without seeing it while it's here at the Fringe! It's far too much fun to be missed." - Ethan Angelica, NYTheatre.com

Nancy Drew and the Tale of the Missing Nano

So, about two years ago (give or take a few months), I lost the BRAND NEW Ipod Nano that my friend Mike gave me. He had a great Ipod already and got the Nano with his new Mac so he offered it to me and I gleefully accepted.

However, within weeks it was gone. I searched high and low.

The Nano was no more.

Then tonight, I was at Cleo's on 9th Avenue celebrating my friend Brandon's birthday (Brandon is one of the authors of and a producing partner on UNDERWEAR: A SPACE MUSICAL). I had on this jacket that I hadn't worn in ages... literally... AGES! Well, I slick it down (making sure I don't look bulgy in it) and feel this weird, blocky spot.

I reach into the inside pocket and FOR CRYING OUT LOUD... there's the $#*(*&(#&% Nano hiding... COMPLETE with ear buds!

So, that's the idiocy of my night. Hopefully I've gained enough dumb points to get me through the next few months. If not, you'll hear about it.

Ogre My God!

Today, DreamWorks Theatricals released the first photo of Brian D'Arcy James as Shrek... the upcoming Broadway stage musical based on the first film and the children's book by William Steig.

Not too bad. I was a touch nervous about this adaptation but BDJ actually looks pretty cool.

According to this article it took 2 hours and 15 minutes to transform him for the first time. That's a LOT of time in a chair. After 10 minutes at the salon I'm ready to bolt.

Until then, follow the show at www.shrekthemusical.com. Let the battle of the green guy vs. the green girl begin.

It's the day of the show, y'all!

It is 9:49am and we're heading downtown the Pace University for our NYC Fringe premiere of UNDERWEAR: A SPACE MUSICAL. Nerves are shot and I'm sweating bullets, but it's all from excitement! The show has come together so well and I think we have some of the most talented cast members I've ever met. If you can make it, please do. It'll be a hoot-and-a-half!

Gotta run... but please don't forget to buy your TICKETS now before things get really crazy! It's the most fun you can have in two hours without getting arrested!!

Attend the tale of Two Cities!

I don't know if you've noticed or not, but there's something interesting happening with some Broadway marketing right now.

While browsing my theatre websites, like the good like Broadway dork I am, I noticed an ad for A Tale of Two Cities (to the right) and was stunned by how similar it is to the iconic photo from Sweeney. Really? This cannot be a marketing goof... right?

I mean, sure, find your target audience and play to their interests. Thoughts?

Now I don't know anything about Two Cities. In fact, I've heard GREAT things about it. I'm just curious about that specific ad and only wish the show the best. Break legs Cities!!!
