The city of Houston has been on news feeds with its share of religious drama. Kim Burrell's hateful rhetoric towards the gays has caused an uproar in the gay and Christian communities, and now the controversial religious satire musical BOOK OF MORMON, written by SOUTH PARK creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone with Robert Lopez (FROZEN), is back in town. The musical opened on Broadway in 2011 and has been pissing off and entertaining packed houses ever since.

by Stephen Hanks - Jan 2, 2017

As a musical theater librettist, lyricist and lifelong connoisseur of Broadway and Hollywood musicals, Frank Evans would have been extremely sad to learn about the passing of screen legend Debbie Reynolds on December 28. But given his sense of humor and ability for self-deprecation, Evans might have also gotten a perverse kick out of knowing he died on the same day as one of his film favorites. Franklin G. Evans, 70, died last Wednesday evening at Methodist Hospital in Park Slope, Brooklyn, due to complications from multiple strokes that ravaged his brain over the last couple of months of 2016. Evans, who also suffered from Parkinson's-related dementia and diabetes, had spent the last year rehabilitating from a serious concussion sustained last December. (more...)
