Instagratification: 9 Theater Superhunks Making Social Media Their Bitch Comments (0)

When it comes to following hot Broadway performers, Off-Broadway actors and chorus boys, I Joshua-Michael-Brickman-Corey-D-Stewartwouldn't say I'm the most dedicated, but I'm one of the most literal—in fact, I tend to run into them on the street and say hello. [Most of the time, they're thrilled to be recognized and briefly chatted up by a fan, though one luscious blond(ish) boy has looked at me like I'm wearing a vest littered with bubonic plague-laced needles.]

My own Instagram is filled with sexy men about town, and probably a decent number of them are buff theater boys, sure to please all you theater buffs.

With innovations like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, you don't even have to leave your home to ogle men who were—let's face it—born to be ogled.

Without further adieu, and in no particular order, here are just a few of the nonsensically beautiful, occasionally ecstatically exhibitionistic men of the theater who you may want to get social with real fast...

Really Most Sincerely Sad: Last Female Munchkin Dies At 95 Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-02-29 at 11.02.32 PMDuccini in 1939

Ruth Duccini (aka Ruth L. Robinson), the second to last original Munchkin from The Wizard of Oz (1939), has died at the age of 95. Following the recent death of Margaret Pellegrini, Duccini was the last surviving female from the film. Now, Jerry Maren is the only living original Munchkin.

This means he is, as far as I know, one of only two known survivors from a film with a cast of hundreds. The other is Dorothy Barrett, 96, who was an Emerald City manicurist and who was uncredited extra in all of the films she made.


Trivia: Judy Garland would be 91 if she were alive today.

When Joan Fontaine died at the ripe old age of 96, I was thinking she must surely be the earliest of Alfred Hitchcock's leading ladies still living. Nope! She was the oldest, but there is one leading lady who was working with Hitchcock a decade before Joan. (It was Nova Pilbeam, who died a couple of years back at 95.)

This inspired my list of all the still-living leading ladies of Hitchcock. For this list's purposes, I tried to make sure I kept out any women who were the most prominent females in their respective films, but who were not, in fact, leads.

As you can see, by any standard, the list is paltry...looks like we're down to 8!

Before peeking, I dare you to try to guess even 5, let alone all 8...
