Front Paige News Comments (0)

Janis Paige, 93, responded to my request for an autograph on this knock-out still of her from the '40s—and her signature is still a thing of beauty.

I've always loved Paige (and the late Anne Francis—I for some reason think of them in the same mind-breath), and yet became confused and for a long while had thought she'd passed away. Probably, I was thinking of Francis. Once I updated my list of stars 80+ and realized I'd left Paige off, I located this stunning pic and sent it right off to her. A couple of months or less later, and here she is.

Screen Shot 2016-01-20 at 8.29.21 PMMike Douglas (far R) interviews: Astaire, Powell, Kelly, Paige, Miller, Reynolds, Fabray: 40 years later, four out of seven of these greats are still with us!

Keep reading for a great Mike Douglas-hosted interview of Paige and many other MGM musical stars back when they were promoting the That's Entertainment II documentary. In it, 114_001Paige displays her independence of thought in giving Douglas a decidedly non-B.S. answer, one in which she asserts her desire not to be controlled.

Keep in mind the show aired February 20, 1976. That means the stars (in order of appearance/speaking) were these ages at the time: Mike Douglas (50), Debbie Reynolds (44), Nanette Fabray (56), Janis Paige (53), Ann Miller (pictured on vintage movie mag; only 52!!!), Jane Powell (46), Gene Kelly (63), Fred Astaire (75), Hermes Pan (66). They all look great, but isn't it interesting that they project a much older aura than stars of the same ages today? Betty White is now 20 years older than Astaire was, Madonna is five years older than Miller was, Melissa McCarthy is a year older than Debbie Reynolds was.

Or maybe, just maybe, they seem older to me because I'm so familiar with them, and when I was growing up, I could place them all as being many decades older than myself? Maybe a kid with zero idea of who they are would guess their ages accurately?

Anyway, watch ...

Pea Shy: A Review Of ONCE UPON A MATTRESS Comments (0)

OnceUponaMattressPhotobyCarolRoseggSleep no more: Jackie Hoffman gives a rousing performance.

I feel like I need a passport whenever I head east—way east—to the Abrons Arts Center (466 Grand, NYC), but it's worth the trip when Jackie Hoffman and John “Lypsinka” Epperson are teaming up in a revival of the musical comedy Once Upon a Mattress, directed by Jack Cummings III.

In spite of being staged Off-Off-Broadway, every aspect of the production is on-point, from the committed performances by top-notch talents to the staging by Scott Rink and even whimsical drawings happening live via projection behind the action courtesy of illustrator Ken Fallin.

The piece itself is shticky, the kind of work that can be pulled off only if all involved are embracing the humor; all are, making this Once Upon a Mattress an absolute charmer.

Who Do They Think They Is? Comments (0)

JakeHagoodFallonbHe is Fancy

TMZ reports that openly gay artist Who Is Fancy is performing on an upcoming Dancing with the Stars with Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor, and that his management requested male-on-male dancing to illustrate his song, which is about a man in love with another man.

The answer was no.

I guess Dancing with the Stars can tolerate glass-closeted male dancers (and one out one), but any suggestion of out-in-the-open homosexuality is too distasteful, even one time, even in the perfect context. In 2015.

A Collection Of BROADWAY BARES Posts Comments (0)

BROADWAY BARES (2008—2013, 2015)

Boy Culture turns 10, so look for a massive missive on some of my favorite-ever posts today. Until then, here's a fun-the-fun-of-it round-up of my Broadway Bares coverage.


Screen Shot 2015-11-06 at 12.53.02 AMI had never so much as seen a male stripper when my friend Jason pushed me hard to come to Broadway Bares with him. Manhattan's annual burlesque charity show for HIV/AIDS was a real eye-opener (and an effective wallet-opener, too). I quickly became enamored of, well, most of the guys on the stage. I wound up becoming a fixture at the shows (is that a..."good" thing?), and my coverage has delighted and, occasionally, horrified the participants. (The kindest take-down notice I ever got was when Guto Bittencourt took me to coffee to politely ask if I might consider removing a video of him in the nude. Some others were a little more direct, but no one was ever rude or freaked out.)

Unfortunately, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS spent an inordinate amount of time fighting me—they would never credential me, and when they did finally invite LOTS of press to cover a Solo Strips event, I didn't make the cut...and their marketing manager threatened to have me kicked out while demanding I stop taking photos. I skipped a year and got over it.

Anyway, I think most of the participants are, or should be, proud of their bodies and their artistic contributions to this unique event.

Following: All of my coverage of Bares and of its related Solo Strips events, roughly in chronological order...
