8 Unforgettable Hollywood Party Moments of 2017: From Fergie to Katy to Weinstein’s Last Oscar Bash

1 hour ago

The first surreal one-off industry gathering of 2017 was not a party, but a protest: the Women’s March at the Sundance Film Festival. In between that Saturday morning in Park City, Utah, and the year ending with a less-merry-than-usual awards season marching through the industry sexual assault reckoning, there were standout moments on the Hollywood party circuit. Here are eight of the best bashes, moments and debuts.

Jerry Richardson to Sell Carolina Panthers Amid Sexual, Racial Misconduct Investigation

2 hours ago

Jerry Richardson will sell his Carolina Panthers at the end of the season in the wake of an investigation into allegations of his “workplace misconduct,” the NFL confirms. At least four former Panthers staffers have received monetary settlements due to Richardson’s inappropriate workplace comments, including sexually suggestive language and behavior, and the use of a racial slur toward an African-American scout, Sports Illustrated reports. In a letter released Sunday, Richardson wrote, “I believe it is time to turn the franchise to new ownership. Therefore, I will put the team up for sale at the conclusion of this NFL season. »

11 Best Theater Productions of 2017, From Oscar Isaac to ‘A Doll’s House Part 2’ (Photos)

3 hours ago

10 “Harry Clarke,” by David Cale, at Off Broadway’s Vineyard Theatre. Patricia Highsmith didn’t write plays, but fortunately Cale does. Playing a charismatic anti-hero, Billy Crudup gives the year’s best non-musical performance. What with his awful father, Harry Clarke is a victim. The wonderful thing about Cale’s play and Crudup’s performance is that Harry never sees himself that way. 9 “Werther,” by Jules Massenet, at the Metropolitan Opera. Opera is theater too, and by far the best performance on the musical stage in New York City came from Vittorio Grigolo in Richard Eyre’s staging of “Werther. »

10 Worst Theater Productions of 2017: From Michael Moore to ‘Amelie’ (Photos)

3 hours ago

10 “The Whirligig,” by Hamish Linklater, at Off Broadway’s New Group. Who’s to blame for a young woman’s impending death from drug addiction? Bigger question: who talked such talented actors (Norbert Leo Butz, Zosia Mamet, Dolly Wells) into performing this script? 9 “Amelie,” by Craig Lucas, Daniel Messe and Nathan Tysen, on Broadway. The movie’s whimsical heroine turns into an insufferable annoyance on stage. 8 “Gently Down the Stream,” by Martin Sherman, at Off Broadway’s Public Theater. An old gay man (Harvey Fierstein) not only talks and talks about every atrocity suffered by the Lgbt community. He has somehow been witness. »

Did You Catch This Fan Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Character’s Death in ‘The Last Jedi’?

3 hours ago

(Note: This post contains some pretty major spoilers for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”) Lucasfilm’s new “Star Wars” movies haven’t shied away from major character deaths. The passing of the torch to a new cast has created moments in which the old crew gave up some of the mantel in “The Force Awakens.” And although Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) factors highly in “The Last Jedi,” the movie definitely belongs to its new crop of heroes. During one key moment in “The Last Jedi,” though, there’s a loss of a fan favorite character that’s easy to miss. »

Amber Tamblyn to Rose McGowan: It’s ‘Beneath’ You to Shame Women Who Try to ‘Create Change’

4 hours ago

Amber Tamblyn called out Rose McGowan about coming down hard on Meryl Streep and other women who plan to wear black dresses at the Golden Globes as an act of silent protest against sexual harassment. “Rose McGowan is a friend and while I support her kind of movement, I do not support any woman (or man) shaming or taunting the movements of other women who are trying to create change,” Tamblyn tweeted Sunday. McGowan criticized the act as an empty gesture, accusing them on Saturday of remaining silent while they “happily worked” for disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein, whom she referred to. »

Rupert Murdoch Is ‘Liar or Delusional’ About Sexual Harassment, Says Ex-Fox News Analyst

5 hours ago

Political commentator Tamara Holder said News Corp owner Rupert Murdoch was either “a liar or delusional” for statements that were widely construed to dismiss concerns of a culture at Fox News that has allowed for rampant sexual harassment. Holder, who is a former contributor and guest host on Fox News Channel, had received a settlement after speaking out about her own encounter with sexual assault at the network. In an interview on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, she responded to Murdoch’s comments in which he brushed off the impact that multiple harassment claims have had on Fox News and dismissed it. »

‘Farinelli and the King’ Broadway Review: Handel Upstages Mark Rylance

5 hours ago

Who thought that George Frideric Handel would ever get a jukebox musical on Broadway? Nine arias from seven of the composer’s early 18-century operas are featured in Claire van Kampen’s new play, “Farinelli and the King,” which opened Sunday at the Belasco Theatre after a run in London. The countertenor Iestyn Davies sings at evening performances; James Hall does the matinees. The wonderful thing about “Farinelli” is the chance to hear a great countertenor in a theater of 900 seats, rather than the much larger Carnegie Hall or the truly gargantuan Metropolitan Opera. The Belasco is much closer in size. »
