ufo2005 - Agree with everyone. Many in P.I does not have a good intention for her. They want to pull her down so here ya go. They got it! She will move on and learn and she should stay in US. To all the haters...Thanks for the publicity... you will suffer as a crab and charice will move on with lots of $$$. To Dr. Belo... hypocrite wishing you more problems and sickness in life. Never did this but I'm tired of P.I crabs and elites.

Actor Larry Keith Dies At Age 79 2010/07/19
Posted: 7/20/2010
Abba Bogin - I was Musical Director for a number of shows that Larry was in, and we became very close friends. One of his most marvelous portrayals was Nathan Detroit, in a USO package of "Guys & Dolls" that went to Vietnam in 1967, and I was honored to provide the music. Larry was a true gentleman and a distinguished actor. His passing is a great loss for all of us.

vaf - This is my personal opinion - I am a Fil-Am and have noticed that majority of the contests of which beauty is irrelevant, judges tend to lean on more "beautiful" face, "beautiful" stature and "beautiful" social status, than talent. I wonder - is this why Charice got 3rd place only in that forgotten contest? I wonder where the 1st placer now?

BOOK SPOTLIGHT - THEATER GEEK: The Real Life Drama of a Summer at Stagedoor Manor, the Famous Perfor
Posted: 7/20/2010
Bobby - I just read this book during some down time in the week and literally could not put it down. Not only does it capture almost all the aspects of a summer at Stagedoor Manor but it captures a summer at any theatre sleep-away camp. Anyone who has been to a camp like stagedoor or plans to send a loved one there, treat yourself to this book. Bobby at http://aclassactny.com

Winners Announced for SAMUEL FRENCH OFF OFF BROADWAY SHORT PLAY FEST 2010/07/19
Posted: 7/20/2010
Mike Amstutz - I was privileged to see the finals on Sunday and would add a 7th play to the winners list - Fan-Boy by Megan Sass. It was truly refreshing to see this new group of playwrites and their fantastic works. I have coached and taught high school theatre for 34 years and competitive speech for 29 years and feel refreshed and encouraged that the new caliber of playwrites out there are producing quality material! I can't wait to purchase hard copies of these plays-. I wish my colleagues in northern Ohio could have been present for the finals. Truly amazing. Thank you Samuel French and company for continuing this rich competition!

Seth Rogen to Play 'Lonny' in ROCK OF AGES Film? 2010/07/20
Posted: 7/20/2010
Doctor Monkeybone - I could buy Rogen as a good Dennis, but not Lonny- Lonny has to have the rock chops of a pro to anchor the show, as he gets some tricky material. Plus, the Lonny/Dennis team was inspired by, if not written for, the rock and roll bromance team of Jack Black and Kyle Gass of Tenacious D, and Gass was among the first to play Dennis. If they aren't at least TRYING to get Jack Black, something seems off.

Posted: 7/20/2010
@jan_mnl - It is a bad example and sends the wrong message to all youngsters and her fans. Why the need to enhance her looks (whether cosmetic or non-invasive)? What is wrong with a naturally round face? What does that message about her face shape to a teen's self-esteem? Glee is about the outcasts. Those who are not accepted in the mainstream because they are different. Charice should have celebrated her uniqueness. It sad that Charice's handlers succumbed to the pressure and superficiality of Hollywood. She is 18. She should have been advised well. Now this incident can be traumatizing for such a young girl, and this could have all been avoided.

AnthonyAg - On the day that Lindsey Lohan goes to jail, this is news? an 18 yr old gets botox treatment for haw muscle pain and the scrutiny and controversy revolves around making her pretty for a part? I miss the days when sex tapes (Kim KArdashian), nude phots scandals (Nicole Ritchie, Vanessa Hudgens, Megan Fox ) , drug driving scandals, bi-sexual news (Anna Paquin) and sex addiction (Tiger Woods, Steve Philipps) make the top of the news.

Young Vic Presents THE QUEEN OF LEENANE July 15- August 21 2010/07/15
Posted: 7/20/2010
Paddy McCaffrey - I went to see this play last night expecting me sides to be splitting with the laughter but I didn't laff once, not even a titter. There were lots of other people laffin but at what I don't know. Sure it was a decent enough play and I thought quite tragic, especially the references to the shite that Irish people had to put up with in the old days when they had to come over to England to find work. But as far as a comedy, I could see and hear a lot of well-heeled middle-class English people laffin but not convincingly enough. Just because a play is supposed to be funny doesn't mean it is, well not to everyone anyway. I was disappointed and wish I'd stayed at home with the auld missus who wasn't interested in seeing it in the first place and how right she was.

Caleb Deschanel to Direct BURNING IN CHINA At FringeNYC, Opens 8/17 2010/07/20

laurel - It's a shame if she had this done for cosmetic reason or as a publicity stunt. She's a beautiful young girl who has just reinforced the idea of not being happy with who you are and doing what you can to change your appearance. She wasn't hired because of her looks, she was hired because of her voice. And if indeed she has jaw pain and requires botox to help control the pain, then she has bigger problems. If your pain is bad enough to require this procedure, than how long will her singing career last before she can no longer sing without pain? And what about getting insurance for a tour? I'm sure a known jaw problem will increase the premiums on any tour you may do.

maya macaya - Agree with Filam and flip, its a big deal in the US, image is being protected and carefully orchestrated. If this issue lingers, I will not be surprised if Glee drops her from the season 2 as guest. They do that in the US, when star brings in too much negative publicity. I still love her and will support her album & glee appearance but not her antics. Glee is a show that promotes positive image to the young generation, do you think her stunt with botox is a positive message to Glee fans?

Bravo Ratings Soar Amongst 18-49 Demographic 2010/07/12
Posted: 7/20/2010
lnwyd - Oh, yikes. WANGA ratings are in "double digit growth in all key demos"? I don't suppose that's for any of the right reasons, such as a genuine interest in art? All I can say is, next time round, dump See-moan and China and get some editors and producers who know a little something about art and art history and also care. Maybe hire a handful of consultants to help articulate the challenges and set the criteria for judges, too--and pull some of those consultants and judges from somewhere beyond Manhattan Island.

sarsman - I came accross this hole in the ground , I know its deep and to find out how deep it is I tossed a coin and waited till it reached the bottom, I prefer this cosmetology thing , rather than a sex scandal maybe or anything worst to find out how famous Charice really is. I saw the coverage and it was candid and honest , it must be a management decision . Charice and company are smart enough for this move, after all shes gotten this far.

GLEE Creator Ryan Murphy Rewrites Charice's Episodes? 2010/07/20
Posted: 7/20/2010
FlipItOnce - Unfortunately, Charice and her handlers may have fallen victim to Dr. Belo's "charm". It is possible that Charice may initially have been interested only in some minor acne treatment and facials, but the controversial doctor may have talked her and her handlers into having this "thermage" and botox procedures. With the presence of TV cameras and reporters, Dr. Belo may have thought, "what a great opportunity for tremendous free publicity! Doing and explaining the procedures in front of TV cameras clearly made the doctor's selfish intentions pretty obvious."... The sad thing, though, is that people say Dr. Belo is Charice's baptismal godmother... I think that, rather than being too harsh on the 18-year-old singing sensation, we instead ought to be more understanding of the sequence of events that led to all this brouhaha... Of course, we still love Charice despite the botox and the thermage...

Dateline Presents AMERICA NOW: CHILDREN OF THE HARVEST 7/18 2010/07/01
Posted: 7/20/2010
SL Amodio - I watched this with a curiosity and first hand knowledge from the investigative perspective. This family who owns a home in both Texas and Minnesota is highly unusual. Most migrant families do not have that luxury in their permanent residence or their temporary one. Also, the family is one of legal residence in the US. That too is an exceptional situation. The hardships that are endured by the parents and children of the vast majority of migrant workers are much harsher than portrayed in this documentary. While it is good to bring attention to the people who are responsible for the food on our tables, there is more to this story in terms of suffering, uncertainty of work, substandard housing conditions, and wage theft.

Robert - yeah, blown out of proportion...people who criticize her for undergoing the procedure are such hypocrites. If given a chance to improve one's appearance for FREE (courtesy of the doctor herself) they would go for it. People just like to talk crap about celebrities because they are just jealous.

FilAmMN - I'm not sure who handles Charice in the Philippines but if she wants to really make it in the U.S., she should stay here for a while. This nonesense about doing botox only benefits her cosmetologist and not her -- in the U.S. real singers have publicists that control their image and whenever she goes to the Philippines, that image falls apart due to comments made by the people around her who only want to see their name on TMZ, E online and other American entertainment websites. Charice, there's a reason why Americans like you -- you have talent, regardless or how you look. Unfortunately, in the Philippines (yes, I'm Filipino American and know the entertainment industry there) physical appearance always rules the day -- and that's too bad. Go back to the U.S. you have to work hard but you have fighting chance of making it over here!

How do these people cope with REAL problems in life ??

Ken Randall - Thanks Nick - exactly the point - not only do they NOT BOTHER to learn our language but they are forcing our hard-working families to get more student loans while they drain the taxpayers for their higher education and also those coveted spots in the colleges from our children too. We all know most of them are not legal, even though the program claims the Spanish-speaking family was. I am only third generation Slovenian - no signs or translators in my families' native language & my grandparents spoke fluent English in their community in an appropriate amount of time - always working honest jobs, not illegally working their children, paying their bills & income taxes. We are paying for this mass exodus from the Latin Countries and our children's children will also be paying for this barrage on our country from these illegal immigrants.

The first time the U.S. met Jessica Fletcher, her nemesis was Arthur Hill. "I can help you with that," he said. Jessica was trying to open a padlock. Arthur Hill is very much like crying at the death of Diana, but not on September 11. I mean, Kellie Martin, no one was going to start a war based on the death of Diana. Against who?

You all worked so well together and there were several tips given by Ian and Daniel. I imagine Daniel was going crazy watching your new painter mess up the orange wall. I know I was. I find it hard to believe you could not put together a more professional crew. Your work is beautiful. The old show had a great format, maybe you should consider a way to continue working with the old crew.

I was a guest at this show with two friends and none of us had heard of this performer. He really needs a bigger stage. He was so-o-o good and fun and personable. The story was his life told to us in story and song. Everything fit together perfectly. I will say that he's got leading man good looks and a killer bright white smile- so he really didn't have to sing a note, but sing he did. His comedic timing was impeccable and his voice was fabulous!!! This was such a treat and a surprise. I hope I get to see him again before he becomes a big star- which is certain.

karen - I feel like it would be cheating if I did this since I was part of the group tossing out suggestions that day! BUT good luck to everyone! I made a playlist of most of the songs we tossed around and still listen to it just about every day :)

Zanna - Chad, Dann'yelle, Cass and the Memphis group all did a fabulous job at Bryant Park. Those 3 selected numbers were perfect to show off this marvelous show, which I absolutely love. Dann'yelle is also playing the part of Felicia, and she and Montego are equally spectacularly talented women. Outstanding voices both of them. Everyone at Bryant Park loved them all.

Carolyn Vicari - @bill goulding I was there the performance in which they filmed it. It happened to be my 3rd time seeing gypsy and unfortunately because she was aware of the filming act 1 she was definitely off act 2 she was as fabulous as usual but it still was bothersome because even my friends who were seeing it the first time knew something was off. It's in the public library the video of it.

Rosalinda C - American culture covers a extremely large variety of people and their beliefs, attitudes, values, and goals. America's history has and always will have it's tainted times...the way the natives were overcome, imported slavery. etc...but for the most part this land has proven to be a land of opportunity even for the most impoverished. As a former prison worker, I've seen the wastefulness of human life, all the people, and not just of latino decent, who have failed to assimilate. All children have had to work with what they were born into. Some of have been lucky to be the 2nd, 3rd or higher generation of hard working past Americans. -Proud US military veteran of 9yrs

jody gelb - I worked with Larry in TITANIC for almost two years. I nicknamed him "The Bull of Broadway" because of his strength and spirit. I last saw him when he was in San Francisco with CAROLINE OR CHANGE. I can't believe that I will not see him again or hear about his work or life. My condolences to Lisa Korn. I adored your Dad.

nellie-claire - I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope that you find some comfort in knowing how many lives your father touched. As the dashing cad/antihero Nick Davis on All My Children, Mr. Keith earned many, many fans. He was absolutely wonderful and people loved him. Nick was mercurial and it took an extremely talented actor to play him. You should be very proud of your father. He is admired and loved and very missed.

Ken Randall - Past Americans worked hard to improve work conditions - we would gladly support employees' rights reform as it pertains to migrant farmers. Food costs are rising and your SALES taxes do not support our crippled education system. Obviously the hostility is from all of you new immigrants - there are weight limits to vehicles and they do take proper maintenance. I'm sure you are all monitoring these comments because this is the story of your lives and you have all been a drain, not assimilating to American culture. Some of us have lived our lives as productive Americans and come from generations that have always payed our medical bills, supported our schools, worked only under proper work regulations and paid our FAIR SHARE of taxes.

Posted: 7/19/2010
bill goulding - LUIS SALGADO is one of the most talented, handsome, classy, kind, caring , and generous human beings in the show business community . LUIS can do it all....sing, act, dance, choreograph splendidly and he has been just dazzling in IN THE HEIGHTS since it's inception. All he needs is a role which will showcase all of his ample talents and he will be a star on Broadway, films, or whichever avenue his career takes him. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this terrific guy...other that anyone who is lucky enough to be a friend of his is blessed.

Mike Nichols to Direct Catherine Zeta-Jones as Elizabeth Taylor on Screen? 2010/07/15
Posted: 7/19/2010
bill goulding - ANGELINA JOLIE would make a perfect SOPHIA LOREN!!! ANGELINA is far too exotic looking to even faintly resemble Dame Taylor. Again, forget this project....ABC tried in 1995 with Sheryl Fein with a TV movie and it was D I S A S T E R ! ! ! Also, they tried it in GODS & MONSTERS with a long shot of someone playing Elizabeth Taylor during the 1950's...again, it did not work. Once again, her image in everyone's mind is just too strong...NO ONE LOOKS LIKE ELIZABETH TAYLOR!!!

Pasadena Playhouse Reorganizes Under Chapter 11 2010/05/11

joseph ashby - I was so relieved and so happy to learn that the Pasadena Playhouse will be able to reorganize and endure as a site for great theatre in Southern California, thanks to some wonderful benefactors. It is a landmark that must be preserved. When I was a little boy, my mother performed in several plays at the playhouse and I still remember my dad taking me "window shopping" while she was in rehearsal.I am anxious to see what the schedule will be for fall/winter 2010. I assure you I will spread the word and be one of the first in line to buy tickets! Joseph Ashby Los Angeles

Rosalinda C. - Such hatefulness... Why? There's plenty of Americans with unsafe vehicles. Some of them unsafe right out of the dealership. My mom, an 80 y/o naturalized US citizen since 1983, that has chosen not to speak english, though she understands every word, is more a decent American than you will ever possibly be. -Child of the Harvest, last harvest 1980.

Lucille Trujillo - I think you should have your facts straight before you shoot your mouth off. The next time you put fruit, canned, fresh or frozen and any vegetable you like, in your mouth as well as that chicken you put on the grill or how ever you eat it remember that you would not be paying what you pay, as cheaply as you pay, without the backbreaking labor these families go through. Every item they buy whether legal or not they pay taxes. There are plenty of unscrupulous employers out there that take advantage of them. I would like to see people like you forced into working 12 to 14 hour days at the wages these people get paid. Instead of complaining you should be grateful that you are eating as well and as cheaply as you are because of these people.
