by Ellen Dostal - Sep 27, 2016

When October hits and Halloween horror movies begin to flood late night TV, you can always count on at least one station somewhere airing Mel Brooks' 1974 classic comedy YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. But this year, the situation is a little different. With the recent passing of Gene Wilder, who stars in the title role and also co-wrote the film with Brooks, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN has been making many more appearances than usual in tribute to Wilder's uncommon genius. As a writer and actor, the film was some of his finest work and will continue to make audiences laugh for years to come. (more...)

by Ashley Steves - Sep 9, 2016

No matter the song, style, or setting, Janice Hall, the multi-talented opera singer, cabaret chanteuse, and character actress, is her own master. She broke into the cabaret scene in 2010 in a big way with the 2011 Bistro Award Winner for Best Tribute Show and 2012 MAC Award Winner for Best Female Vocalist. The show that earned her those awards? 'GRAND ILLUSIONS: THE MUSIC OF MARLENE DIETRICH,' which Hall debuted in 2010 and will revive for one night on September 13 at 7:00 pm at the Metropolitan Room.

by Michael Dale - Aug 23, 2016

At the end of Mel Brooks' Broadway musical adaptation of his film classic 'Young Frankenstein,' there's the quick lyrical suggestion that a song and dance version of his 1974 western spoof 'Blazing Saddles' is on the way. Does the 90-year-old comedy legend still have it in the works? Perhaps someone will ask when Mel Brooks takes the stage of Radio City Music Hall on September 1st after a 7:30pm screening of 'Blazing Saddles.' (more...)
