THE SHOW follows the rags-to-riches story of the Parisian singer’s career through her unforgettable songs such as “La Vie en Rose” and “Hymne à L’amour,” complemented by a visual tapestry of previously unreleased photographs and images of famous locations from Piaf’s era.  Edith Piaf’s longtime collaborators, composer Charles Dumont and singer Germaine Ricord described Anne Carrere’s skills as that of Edith Piaf at the top of her career.

PIAF! THE SHOW has 400 upcoming shows through 2019 in the US, Europe and Asia.

The show features the pipes of Anne Carrere. Check her out: 

The show takes place Friday, January 6, at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20-$125 and can be purchased through Carnegie Hall's website or by calling CarnegieCharge at (212) 247-7800.

WIDGETTrump selects buffoon — who recently admitted he couldn't handle a government job — as HUD Secretary: Ben Carson. (Get why?)

WIDGETDems plan to delay, delay, delay all of Trump's Cabinet picks. Remember Merrick Garland? Federal judge orders immediate recount of Michigan.

WIDGETGuess one way for Trump to get people behind him is intentionally starting a Cold War with China. Or a hot one?

More On Richard Corman's 66 Unearthed Madonna Polaroids — And Buy His Limited New Book! Comments (0)

Richard Corman has granted an interview to Vogue, in which he reminisces about the time he took 66 (and there are probably a few others out there) Polaroids of Madonna one day in the early '80s, with an eye toward helping his mother cast her in a film:

“She was wearing white lace leggings under torn jeans . . . a jean jacket with graffiti on the back and the sleeves cut off, with these rubber bangles, more like friendship bracelets, that she would give away to friends. Her makeup was just so brash—these red lips, and she created that mole on the side of her face,” he says. “You’d say now that it was so chic—you walk into Opening Ceremony, Urban Outfitters, and this is what everyone is wearing—but she was a visionary. It was so bohemian and gritty and down-to-earth. She was going to vintage clothing shops. She had great taste—and you can’t teach that. And the dress, I swear she paid $2 for the gown, and it was so exquisite.”

Even more importantly, Corman's next Madonna book is on sale now — only 500 copies of the most limited edition will be available, so act fast and click here.

Here's a novel idea — visit a sex club, but don't have sex. Instead, talk about all the great memories of having sex in another sex club decades previously.

This is right up my alley.

Hello, Barry! Comments (0)

BL1c(Movie still via Warner Bros.)

If you've never seen Barry Lyndon, the 1975 period piece written, directed and produced by the late, great mad genius Stanley Kubrick — or if you can never see it often enough — don't miss this showing, which comes complete with a live orchestra:

Producers Joseph A. Berger and Michael Sayers, in association with Wordless Music and Warner Bros. Pictures,invite you to the World Premiere of BARRY LYNDON LIVE IN CONCERT at Brooklyn’s extraordinary Kings Theatre on Saturday, April 8, 2017, at 8pm. Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece will be projected in a new 2K DCP restoration, with a live score by Wordless Music Orchestra, led by renowned conductor Ryan McAdams. 

Barry Lyndon’s Oscar winning soundtrack features Irish traditional music and military marches, along with baroque and classical themes by Mozart, Vivaldi, Bach, and Paisiello. Most notable are sumptuous interpretations Schubert’s Piano Trio in E-Flat Major, D. 929, which emerges as a recurring, melancholic love theme for Lady Lyndon, and Handel’s Sarabande - a heartbreaking melody that embodies the tragedy of Barry's ruined life.  

The sublime score will be performed by the 50-piece Wordless Music Orchestra, and conducted by Ryan McAdams. Barry Lyndon will be projected on the huge, glorious screen of Kings Theatre (1027 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn), Brooklyn’s premier movie palace and one of the five ‘Loew’s Wonder Theatres,’ opened in 1929 and magnificently restored in 2015. This engagement will be on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 8pm, and promises to be a memorable evening of live music and masterful cinema. The program is approximately three hours, plus one intermission.

Trump Settles Trump University Mess For $25M Comments (0)

In order to avoid a messy court case — and the optics of being a president or even president-elect and having to appear in court — Donald Trump is settling his Trump University cases.

NY's A.G. Eric Schneiderman says in a statement:

In 2013, my office sued Donald Trump for swindling thousands of innocent Americans out of ​millions of dollars through a scheme known at Trump University. Donald Trump fought us every step of the way, filing baseless charges and fruitless appeal​s​ and refusing to settle for even modest amounts of compensation for the victims of his phony university. Today, that all changes. Today's $25 million settlement agreement is a stunning reversal by Donald Trump and a major victory for the over 6,000 victims of his fraudulent university.

I am pleased that under the terms of this settlement, every victim will receive restitution and that Donald Trump will pay up to $1 million in penalties to the State of New York for violating state education laws. The victims of Trump University have waited years for today's result and I am pleased that their patience--and persistence--will be rewarded by this $25 million settlement.

Trump will acknowledge no wrongdoing.
