@MelBrooks - 1/27/17 09:22pm No one could have played The Elephant Man more memorably. He carried that film into cinematic immortality. He will be sorely missed.


@MelBrooks - 1/27/17 09:22pm It was terribly sad today to learn of John Hurt's passing. He was a truly magnificent talent.

BWW Review: Brilliantly Funny SOMETHING ROTTEN! at The Fox TheatreBWW Review: Brilliantly Funny SOMETHING ROTTEN! at The Fox Theatre
by Chris Gibson - Feb 11, 2017

I know that some critics will probably refer to Monty Python's Flying Circus or the work of Mel Brooks when they try to explain the appeal of SOMETHING ROTTEN!. There are some similarities to both, but the fact is, this show (book by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O'Farrell with Music and Lyrics by Wayne and Karey Kirkpatrick) is actually something uniquely original. Sure a lot of contemporary musicals have taken the opportunity to crack wise while parodying musical theatre tropes before, but never as thoroughly and hilariously. The current touring show at The Fox Theatre is just great fun, and I highly recommend that you attend! (more...)
