A New Golden Age? LA LA LAND Presents an In-Depth Look at a Decade of Movie MusicalsA New Golden Age? LA LA LAND Presents an In-Depth Look at a Decade of Movie Musicals
by Stage Tube - Dec 20, 2016

The 1940s-60s is widely considered to be a Golden Age of movie musicals. With dynamic stars like Gene Kelly, Judy Garland, Shirley Jones, Cyd Charisse and Fred Astaire lighting up the big screen time and time again, the years that followed the second World War undoubtedly brought us some of our most beloved classics. In 2002, a blockbuster called Chicago proved that the movie musical could be not only a commercial and critical success, but cool again. Since then, the world has seen a resurgence in a genre that was long-considered dead, bringing an American tradition back to the forefront of popular culture. This holiday season, the movie musical is back in full force with the critically-acclaimed La La Land, featuring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. With the arrival of perhaps the best movie musical in decades, we're bringing you an in-depth timeline of the past ten years in movie musicals. Are we in a second Golden Age? Decide for yourself!

BWW Review: Michael Feinstein Salutes Judy Garland at His Annual Holiday ShowBWW Review: Michael Feinstein Salutes Judy Garland at His Annual Holiday Show
by Alix Cohen - Dec 17, 2016

'For 47 years, the world of entertainment was blessed with a force of nature called Judy Garland,' Michael Feinstein begins, 'and for Judy, it all began at MGM.' As the artist takes his time with Arthur Schwartz/Howard Dietz's 'That's Entertainment,' screens on either side of the stage show clips from the film of the same name deftly edited to reflect every lyric. A coda of special material makes 'star' recognition even more specific. In Feinstein's A HOLIDAY TO REMEMBER at Feinstein's/54 Below, we hear songs from Garland's films and appearances, some iconic, others less known. Despite a life of trials, we're told, the performer left a legacy of optimism and joy. She had a quick-witted sense of humor, especially about herself. On one occasion, when Lucille Ball was praised for her humor, she responded that it was scripted, while Judy Garland's was spontaneous. The show is peppered with illuminating anecdotes. (more...)
