CC Blooms – Hot gay bar/club

CC Blooms – Hot gay bar/club
Last updated: Dec 7th, 2017 | By: Mark Gorman

Although I’ve been straight for 55 years (I’m 55) I socialise with many musical theatre lovers, actors and artisans. It’s inevitable therefore that I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy the gay culture of Edinburgh and CC’s (as everyone calls it) is at the throbbing heart of it.

Nearby GHQ and Chalkies also offer excellent after hours entertainment.

The thing about Edinburgh’s gay scene, in my experience, is that it’s entirely welcoming and non-judgemental – so long as you are too. So, CC’s represents a great way to explore this side of Edinburgh’s culture. Read More

John Heard, one of America’s greatest actors of the past half century, has died at age 72.

Heard was found in a hotel room in Palo Alto, California. He had recently undergone back surgery only last week and was staying at the hotel to recover.

Police do not consider the death suspicious. “I can confirm that our officers responded with the Fire Department to a hotel in our city yesterday on a report of a person in need of medical aid,” a police spokesman said. “The person was determined to be deceased. While still under investigation, the death is not considered suspicious at this time.” Read More

Bette Midler turned up for the Hello, Dolly! rehearsals this week and, being the consummate professional everyone knows her to be, she already knew the dance routines. Hello, Dolly! is going to be a very hot number on Broadway this year, and Page 6 reported that even before rehearsals officially began, Midler had spent weeks learning the dance numbers.

Hello, Dolly! has already set box office records, with first-day receipts of more than $9 million and advance sales estimated at $30 million. Read More

New York Times: ‘Beaches’ Remake Review

The New York Times
Review: They’ve, Sob, Remade ‘Beaches
By MIKE HALEJAN. 20, 2017

maxresdefault

“Beaches,” directed by Garry Marshall and released three decades ago, was a curio even in its own time: a pastiche of 1950s tear-jerkers that was set, strangely and uncomfortably, in the 1970s and ’80s. Portraying the lifelong friendship of two women, one of whom dies too young — you could say that’s a spoiler, but it’s really the only thing the movie’s about — it was a shamelessly retrograde and literal-minded soap opera with a veneer of fake feminism. (Careers and single motherhood were fine as long as they involved constant suffering.) Depending on your susceptibilities, it could inspire cultish devotion or impel you to yell at the screen.

Beaches Lifetime Review: What really baffles is that these rather solid actors turn in two of the worst performances I’ve seen in ages

Flavorwire
Lifetime’s ‘Beaches’ is One More Remake Better Left Alone
It must be cold there in the shadow of the 1988 classic.
Film | By Lara Zarum | January 19, 2017

beachesremakeidinzamenzel

Say what you want about Beaches, but that movie is nothing if not juicy, an overripe peach oozing with the drama of a decades-long friendship between two very different women. This is, after all, the movie that gave us Bette Midler’s soaring rendition of “Wind Beneath My Wings.” So it’s doubly disappointing that Lifetime’s remake of the beloved 1988 weepy, which stars Idina Menzel and Nia Long and airs on Saturday, is so dry. Like Fox’s recent reboot of The Rocky Horror Picture ShowLifetime’s Beaches turns out to be nostalgia-baiting waste of talent and resources, a freeze-dried remake that’ll leave you wistful for the fresh taste of the original.
