The story behind One Tree Hill’s infamous scene of a dog eating a human heart

Every major TV show needs that one moment, the one unforgettable image or line that imprints itself not just on fans, but on culture. For Game Of Thrones, it was the Red Wedding. For Mad Men, it was Don Draper’s “carousel” speech. And for One Tree Hill, the CW soap opera that lasted nine seasons despite not a single…

Bruce Springsteen is doing a solo stint on Broadway

Before any confusion arises, let’s go ahead and explain that this headline doesn’t mean Bruce Springsteen has written a one-man show and will be performing it on The Great White Way.

John Mulaney and Nick Kroll love the comedy stylings of Kim Cattrall and Kelsey Grammer

When Nick Kroll and John Mulaney created Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland at a little nightclub on New York’s Lower East Side, they probably didn’t think that, a decade or so later, they’d be portraying their lovable idiots on Broadway.

Taran Killam to make his Broadway debut as King George in Hamilton

Hamilton clearly isn’t a show that needs to rely on stunt casting to succeed. But if there’s one part tailor made for a celebrity cameo, it’s King George. The comic relief role is basically only onstage for three quick songs, which is a pretty cushy schedule for a Broadway star. And the part is all but designed as a…

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child may have found its Broadway home

Rowling’s stage-based sequel to her original book/movie series—for some time, but the show is about to take a huge step toward its eventual debut in the United States. According to a press release, the show is currently in…

A podcast, a Broadway ballad, and a punk publication both timely and timeless

Like everyone else I know, I spent last week a) drinking and b) slowly acclimating myself to the reality of the world in which we live. Last week’s news felt like a floodlight, too bright and too hot to look at directly. One of my first orders of business was to catch up on all of those podcasts with titles like “How…

Barbra Streisand visits old dressing room, discovers a shrine to Barbra Streisand

The musical icon took it in stride when CBS Sunday Morning brought her to visit her old Funny Girl dressing room at the Winter Garden Theater, where School Of Rock is currently running. It turns out the dressing…
