First Time In 40 Years: Liza Minnelli To Perform At Royal Festival Hall, London


Liza Minnelli Bob Fosse Joel Grey

Liza Minnelli is returning to London's Royal Festival Hall next year and frankly we can't contain our excitement much more.

The stage, screen and studio star will be performing at the Royal Festival Hall to celebrate the hit musical Cabaret next year, forty years after she last performed at the famed venue. Her last performance there came during the hugely successful 'Liza With A Z' tour and come March 2013 it will be as if she never left, as Minnelli will be performing many of the songs that she took with her all those years ago.

After the announcement of her upcoming performance, which will take place in March 2013 (an exact date is yet to be given), she told the press in an official statement, "I'm always so excited to perform in London, I have so many friends and fans there I consider it my second home. And to be returning to the Royal Festival Hall after all this time is thrilling." Liza's performance is part of the Southbank Centre's 'Berlin in the '20s and '30s' weekend, which will also include a screening of Cabaret, for which Minnelli won the Best Actress Oscar in 1973.

Michael Sheen: 'Tron Character Based On Frank-n-furter'


Michael Sheen Cabaret Frank-n-furter Joel Grey Rocky Ziggy Stardust

Michael Sheen developed "multiple personalities" based on film characters for his role in 'Tron: Legacy'.

The British actor - who plays nightclub owner Castor in the follow-up to the 80s cult classic - based the role on a number of camp icons from the past, including Ziggy Stardust and Frank-n-furter.

He said: "Castor is a guy who runs a nightclub who is a performer who uses multiple personalities as a smoke screen, so there's Ziggy Stardust in there, there's a bit of Joel Grey from Cabaret and a bit of Frank-N-Furter from the Rocky Horror Show.

The Fantasticks Review


Terrible
After 40 continuous years of off-Broadway performances, the musical sensation of Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt comes inexplicably to the big screen. That's right, folks. All the dancing, singing, and mindbogglingly stupid antics of off-Broadway's longest-running embarrassment can now be experienced at a cinema near you.

Set deep in rural America, this is the story of two neighboring fathers who fake a feud in order to trick their children into courtship. Of course, the young man and woman (played by Joe McIntyre and Jean Louisa Kelly, respectively) are easily duped and everything is going as planned. That is, until the circus comes to town. And that's when the moronic singing starts.

Dancer In The Dark Review


Very Good

For years filmmakers have been trying to reinvent the musical. "Evita" went big, "My Best Friend's Wedding" sneaked musical numbers into its semi-standard romantic comedy, the "South Park" movie mocked the cartoon musical while besting it with genuinely catchy tunes, "Love's Labour's Lost" was an homage to the Fred and Ginger sing-songs of the 1930s.

But no one has succeeded in making a truly modern movie musical, one that employs emerging filmmaking techniques instead of reaching back 50 years for inspiration. In fact, no one has ever even attempted something like "Dancer In the Dark."

Writer and director Lars von Trier -- the reclusive Dane behind the minimalist Dogme95 movement that espouses natural lighting, no props and handheld cameras -- discovers a way to marry his trademark sparseness with the unfettered showmanship of song and dance numbers in this daring retooling of the musical genre.
