Quote of the Day: On keeping it fresh...

"Filming is quite exciting because every day is different, but it can involve long hours standing around in chilly locations. Theatre is a very different challenge because every night you're striving to keep it fresh, even though you might have been performing the same play for months."
-- Samantha Bond (via BrainyQuote)

What we're watching: Baz Luhrmann's first feature film and part one of the director's "Red Curtain Trilogy" - 1992's STRICTLY BALLROOM! The film was nominated for a Golden Globe and won three BAFTAs, as well as eight AFI Awards. It's now dancing to its own, revamped beat onstage in Luhrmann's native Sydney. Watch a TV spot for the show here!

And finally, a Happy Birthday shout-out to Abigail Breslin, hitting the big 18 today!

Breslin made her Broadway debut as Helen Keller in THE MIRACLE WORKER in 2010 and was recently seen in the film adaptation of AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY opposite Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep. Her other recent big screen credits include Perfect Sisters, Wicked Blood, Ender's Game, The Call, Zombieland and more. She made her movie debut in 2006's LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE, and her performance made her one of the youngest actresses ever to be nominated for an Academy Award. The film was later adapted for the stage and ran at off-Broadway's Second Stage Theatre in New York City last year.
