Yet another trip to Burbank for an autograph show, but this time it was for the return of the Courts. The Courts created The Hollywood Show in 1991, then sold to the current owner, signing a non- Joan-Crawfordcompete clause that was in effect for a number of years. When the period was up, they decided to come back and compete in the market again. The results were mixed—they knocked down some big names (Dyan Cannon, Katherine Helmond), but they weren't able to promote the show properly (or these shows are dying even faster than genuine stars are) so it was sparsely attended.

Still, I had a good time seeing the people I came to see, finding Danny Pintauro from Who's the Boss? advertising himself as a horny vers sex maniac on Grindr and arguing over one photo op in particular as if I were Ron Galella and the subject were Jackie O. (I'm not, she's not; the title refers to this encounter.)

Here are my impressions of the stars I met...

In The Name Of Love: A Review Of PRIDE Comments (0)

PridePride is a rare gay film that isn't about sex and romantic entanglements.

BOY CULTURE REVIEW: **** out of ****

Writer Stephen Beresford and director Matthew Warchus (1999's Simpatico with Nick Nolte, Jeff Bridges and Sharon Stone) have crafted the perfect '80s gay movie in 2014's Pride, which tells the feel-good-'n'-Socialist story of Great Britain's striking miners of the summer of '84 and the unlikely alliance between them and a group of gay activists.

Mark-Ashton-PrideThe late Mark Ashton (L) and Ben Schnetzer (R), who ably brings him to life in Pride

In 1984, with miners on strike and being starved out by heartless right-wing PM Margaret Thatcher (her face in the film begs for boos), a grassroots group calling itself LGSM (Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners) decides to align itself with the cause of the miners, recognizing fellow underdogs. Their efforts are met with some resistance from the workers, who don't look too kindly on perverts and fairies, but they are ultimately welcomed and open minds even as they work to collect donations.

The Reviews Are In: 10 Vintage, Personal Takes On NYC Theater Comments (0)

Playbill-Chicago copy

Made a fun find at the Broadway Flea Market yesterday—a stack of old Playbills from some guy (I assume) who seems to have seen every show on the boards from the '60s until at least two years ago. What makes his collection special is he jotted down his reviews on the covers...and at times they're hilariously malevolent, if not also downright wrong. The original Chicago? Hated it. Torch Song Trilogy? Too much mugging and the fat fag with a gravel voice never could be believed.

Check them out below (all of the below is quoted from his writing)—some of them are priceless...

WILLIAMS-master675-v2

Finally developed and ready to be displayed after 101 years, a never-released feature film with a black cast is said to be the most complete recorded performance of the important black Broadway star Bert Williams (November 12, 1874—March 4, 1922). The story of its journey from 1913 to its 2014 debut is pretty fascinating.
