Single Ladies

So while I was at Young Frankenstein next store at the Music Box in Hollywood was the cast of GLEE. They were there to showcase the 1st season fo GLEE for Emmy Voters! Check out these highlights:

Puttin' On The Ritz

LOVED/LIKED IT: On Tuesday night I attended the opening night of Young Frankenstein. The show was sooo much fun. Being the HUGE Mel Brooks fan I was I could not wait for this show to make it to LA, AND boy was it worth it! Though I really had a great time seeing this story come to life on stage it does not even come close to the classic 1974 movie. On hand at the opening was none other than Mel Brooks himself (AHHH I SAW MEL). Check out the photos I snapped of him on the red carpet. Cloris Leachman who was in the original film was also on hand for the festivities.

The tour stars straight from Broadway Roger Bart as Frederick Frankenstein (AKA Frahnken-STEEN) and Shuler Hensley as the monster. And let me tell you these two guys are amazing. You might know Bart from his guest roles in Despart House Wives, 30 Rock, or as Carmen Ghia in the Producers (Broadway & Movie). Bart is one of the funniest stage actors out there and it was an honor to see him on stage. Plus the man can SING. The Broadway vet Hensley, was LMAO funny as the monster. They truly make each character their own bringing there own twist to these iconic characters. Cory English who also did the Broadway run played Igor. He hit every mark and brought down the house with his dance moves, facial expressions, and lovely hump. Although the stars are straight from Broadway they did scale down the production from its original run on Broadway. I am curious to if the bigger scaled show would have been better or not?

The show runs through August 8th so hurry to the Pantages Theatre!!!
$25 STUDENT RUSH TICKETS! - For this engagement of YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, the Pantages is making available $25 Student Rush Tickets. Must show valid full-time student ID. Rush tickets are available beginning 2 hours prior to each performance. Ticket must be purchased in cash at the box office window only.

Can't Touch This

This past Monday GLEE writers Brad Falchuk, Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan sat down at the Paley Center for the Media Arts for their Inside the writers room. I was lucky enough to attend this event and had an amazing time! They reflected on the season 1 and gave lots of scoop on season two. Season Two starts filming at the end of this month!!! The season premier has been set for September 21! They will explore Finn and Rachel as a couple through out the season and they say they plan on not breaking them up through out the season. Also Terri will be back! They are exploring love interest for her that will drive Will crazy and she will of course try to win him back. They plan to have 4 to 5 musical number each episode, they feel 8 was TOOO many.

Ian writes most of Sue's lines and told the group that he did not realize he was such an asshole until his words can out of Jane Lynch's mouth. Brad broke down who writes what like this... If you laugh then Ian wrote it, if you cry Brad wrote it, and if you go WTF did that just happen? then Ryan wrote it. It is truly amazing that this very closet net group of guys write this AMAZING piece of art. Though they are only three now they plan to bring on two or four more writers to help out.

As far as new people on GLEE goes... they plan on waiting until the 2nd 1/2 of season 2 to introduce them in depth. They really want to explore the characters we do have and let characters from season one who did not get a chance to shine do so in season 2. That means that Brittney will SING! The search for new cast member for GLEE will be extended through September and new people will be selected and brought on later in the season.
