A Commercial Jingle for Regina Comet

In-person theater is coming back to life and I trekked to Union Square for this new musical. I wish I'd liked it more. Click here for my review.

Talking Tonys

It was great fun to discuss CBS' Tonys broadcast (rather than who or what got awards) with the Times' Jesse Green and James Poniewozik. Read on.

Only an Octave Apart

 I talked to Justin Vivian Bond and Anthony Roth Costanzo about their show at St. Ann's Warehouse. I love that they were inspired by Beverly Sills and Carol Burnett's TV special from 1976! Click here for the goods.

Everybody's Talking About Jamie

A film adaptation of the West End musical Everybody's Talking About Jamie is now on Amazon, and I reviewed it for the Times. Fun fact: Holly Johnson of Frankie Goes to Hollywood sings the big Richard E. Grant number. Click here for my review.

Come from Away

Just like the stage musical, the capture of Come from Away is hard to hate and hard to love. My review of the new Apple TV+ stream is here.

There is still theater to stream

As in-person theater returns, my streaming column in the New York Times comes to an end, at least in this incarnation. There are some real goodies in that last installment so click here.

10 from Jean-Paul Belmondo

I was actually surprised by how many Jean-Paul Belmondo hits are available in the U.S. — and if you're lucky enough to have a Kanopy account, there are even more. I put together a list of 10 for the New York Times. Get reading and then get streaming!

Come From Away

I returned to Gander and the good folks of Come From Away, which is now streaming on Apple TV+. It's pretty much like the Broadway show (itself returning soon), which means that it's hard to hate and hard to love. Click here for my review.
