Theater news

In Broadway news this week, there's good news for shows like Holler If Ya Hear Me, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill. Plus, the countdown till the Tony nominees is on!

Holler If Ya Hear Me Gets a Star

Last July, it was announced a musical based on the music of Tupac Shakur would be heading to Broadway. Alas, there was no date, just a vague time frame and the knowledge that Tupac's music was the catalyst behind the production. Recently, the show not only got a firm debut date (June 19, 2014, with previews beginning May 26, 2014), but the cast was announced, too. Renowned slam poet, singer, and actor Saul Williams will take the title role in Holler If Ya Hear Me, alongside other Broadway veterans, such as Christopher Jackson (After Midnight), Saycon Sengbloh (Fela!), and Ben Thompson (Matilda). Tonya Pinkins, John Earl Jelks, Joshua Boone, and Dyllon Burnside round out the cast.

U.S. Man Wins 2014 Boston Marathon

You know that saying "It’s not a race, it's a marathon"? Well, every marathon still has a winner. At this year's Boston Marathon, that honor went to 38-year-old Meb Keflezighi, the first U.S. man to win the marathon since 1983.

Keflezighi, a three-time Olympian, won the men's division with an official time of 2:08:37 — a time that's pretty fantastic in its own right, but especially because it is only five minutes shy of the the best time ever. Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya holds the record for fastest marathon for his race in 2011, with a time of 2:03:02.

In first place for women was 33-year-old Rita Jeptoo, of Kenya, who nabbed the title for the second year in row, and the third time overall. Her unofficial time of 2:18:57 broke a record for the women's course, as exactly 1 minute and 46 seconds faster than the previous record, which was set in 2002 by Margaret Okayo of Kenya.

Both Jeptoo and Keflezighi were part of elite groups of runners who began the 26.2-mile run well ahead of the rest of the 35,000 runners.

Jersey Boys Movie Brings Broadway Show to Silver Screen

Theater news

Like many Broadway greats before it, including Hairspray, Rent, and The Phantom of the Opera, the Tony-winning show Jersey Boys gets its own film adaptation. The movie, an adaptation by Clint Eastwood, follows the same basic premise of the show, chronicling the early-rock group the Four Seasons and their rise to fame.

The film stars John Lloyd Young, who won a Tony award for his role as Frankie Valli in the Broadway version, as well as Erich Bergen, Michael Lomenda and Vincent Piazza as the Four Seasons. Christopher Walkenwill play a mobster.

"Jersey Boys" is expected to open in theaters June 20. Check out the trailer behind the jump and comment to let us know what you think!

What People Are Talking About

Mrs. Doubtfire 2

In Parts-Of-Your-Childhood-That-Refuse-To-Die news, it was announced this week that a "Mrs. Doubtfire" sequel is in the works. While Matthew Lawrence said he would actually be up for it, Mara Wilson — who you may remember as the star of "Matilda" as well as the youngest daughter in "Mrs. Doubtfire" — has already said she's NOT interested in being involved with the sequel. Most interestingly, Robin Williams will allegedly be involved (because what would a "Mrs. Doubtfire" film be without its main character?). It's hard to fathom how or what they'll do in the sequel, but maybe they'll take a page out of the "horror-film" version of the "Mrs. Doubtfire" trailer (see video above) and go that route.
