Mark Shenton: Is Broadway becoming too reliant on megahits?

Mark Shenton: Is Broadway becoming too reliant on megahits?
by Mark Shenton – Oct 26, 2017

Unlike in the West End, where weekly box office grosses are a well-guarded secret, Broadway has a transparency where every show reports its weekly take publicly.

The time-honoured tradition used to be print-led, in the pages of the trade paper Variety; but nowadays it is more immediate, published weekly online every Monday afternoon by the Broadway League, the New York equivalent of the Society of London Theatre. Read More

How Hocus Pocus Became an Enduring Halloween Hit

How Hocus Pocus Became an Enduring Halloween Hit
By Josef Adalia
October 26, 2017

In TV, movies, and real life, women have been at the forefront of the year’s biggest stories — so this Halloween season, we’re looking at pop culture’s most wicked depiction of female power.

The 21st century has ushered in a slew of new October traditions: “spooky” Twitter handles, social-media battles over the merits of pumpkin-spice everything — and of course, endless TV showings of Hocus Pocus. Much like the Sanderson sisters themselves, the 1993 Disney comedy about a trio of resurrected Salem witches has had a shockingly successful afterlife. Freeform’s annual autumnal reruns of the movie reliably draw tens of millions of viewers each year. The film zooms toward the top of the DVDsales charts every October. And in the ultimate sign of pop-culture success, plans are now underway for a TV remake of Hocus Pocus in time for next year’s 25th anniversary. Millennial nostalgia — and perhaps some masterful marketing — has transformed a movie critics once dismissed as “an unholy mess” and a “chaotic jumble” into an unlikely Halloween classic. Read More

The 15 Greatest Witch Movies of All Time

The 15 Greatest Witch Movies of All Time

In TV, movies, and real life, women have been at the forefront of the year’s biggest stories — so this Halloween season, we’re looking at pop culture’s most wicked depiction of female power.

If you’re a horror-movie aficionado, you’ve seen more vampires, werewolves, zombies, and serial killers than you could shake a stick, stake, silver bullet, or arrest warrant at. Isn’t it high time that the witches of cinema also get the acclaim they deserve? A great witch movie is inherently compelling because it’s driven by a person — a woman, usually — who refuses to behave the way that society demands. What makes witch movies so fascinating as a collection, though, is their wide variety of tones and messages. Whether you’re into the fun-for-all-ages allure of Hocus Pocus or the blood-spewing charms of Black Sunday, somewhere out there is a pointy hat and broomstick that’ll fit you just right. Read More

On Gypsy: “There are some shows that are just better than all of the others.

On Gypsy: “There are some shows that are just better than all of the others. There’s ‘Gypsy,’ there’s ‘South Pacific,’ there’s ‘Guys and Dolls.’ These shows are so American, and they’re so ingrained in the consciousness, they’re classics. And when you get the chance to play them, you jump at it, because it’s a thrill to be able to open your mouth and say those words and sing those songs. There’s no false notes in any of it: The dialogue is as pure as it can be; the characters are fully fleshed-out human beings; the story evolves naturally; it has real conflict; it has everything. It’s great.” (1993) – Bette Midler Read More
