As this Spider-Man tale opens, the audience sees New York City “on fire and in ruins” as “a section of the Brooklyn Bridge ascends with Mary Jane bound and dangling helplessly from the bridge.” Soon thereafter, a new villainess called Arachne flies into the picture spinning her own deadly trap, and as Spider-Man battles all kinds of criminals he’s swinging right over the audience. It sounds like the 3-D opening for the next “Spider-Man” sequel, and even though this superhero story is filled with Hollywood-style special effects, it is instead a glimpse from a Continue reading →

Kerry Washington is ready to make her Broadway debut this fall. The ‘Lakeview Terrace’ star will star in David Mamet’s upcoming play ‘Race,’ set to start previews at New York City’s Ethel Barrymore Theatre on Nov. 17. Producers are keeping mum about the actual plot of the show, which also stars James Spader and Richard Thomas ,and will mark Mamet’s 50th year on Broadway. “I don’t know how much I’m allowed to say outside of it being a brand new play from David Mamet [but] it’s interesting,” Washington told BlackVoices.com during an interview this week. The Bronx native, who wowed mainstream movie audiences in the Academy Award winning 2005 Ray Charles biopic, said she is “thrilled” about this latest career move.
The only thing particularly green about this photo is the background, but I wanted to throw it up there anyways since Johnny Depp’s take on the Mad Hatter looks brilliant. As you’ve probably guessed, this one of the first promo shots for Tim Burton’s trippy take on Alice In Wonderland. After seeing what Depp looks like, would you want to take a fall down this rabbit hole? He is portrayed with dark eyes, pale face and bandaged left thumb. Though the fansite claims the image to be the first pic of the Mad Hatter, many doubt whether the image is real since the character will most likely be presented in motion capture. Cinematical, in particular, suggests that it may be a concept art for the character or a painting of the character ” that may or may not show up in the background of a scene”. In “Alice”, Depp will star opposite titular character’s depicter, Mia Wasikowska. He will also be joined by other co-stars that include Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Michael Sheen and Alan Rickman. Based on the Lewis Carroll classic of the same name, “Alice in Wonderland” will be Tim Burton-directed project that will combine performance-capture imagery with live-action footage. The script is penned by Linda Woolverton, and the film itself is expected to hit U.S. theaters on March 5, 2010.
WHAT DO YOU THINK of Johnny Depp in these new roles?
Colonial Players is capping its 60th season with a sparkling comedy about a couple grappling with their version of the seven-year itch. A major bonus of CP’s excellent season was discovering American playwright David Lindsay-Abaire in October with Rabbit Hole and now being treated to another of his works, Wonder of the World, at the end of the season. Lindsay-Abaire, who was recently nominated for a Tony as author of the book for the musical Shrek, established his comedic gifts with Wonder, which premiered on Broadway in October 2003. In the opening scene, heroine Cass is packing her suitcase, determined to leave Kip, her husband of seven years. When Kip arrives with a plate of aspic for her lunch, he is shocked to discover her intentions. Describing herself as “a tall glass of sparkling cider,” Cass seems to fear a loss of effervescence. Their parting turns amusing, as does almost every scene that follows in this irresistible comedy filled with madcap humor, fast-paced, clever dialogue and lovable characters. We may recognize ourselves in those characters as they experience a ridiculous variety of tourist situations throughout the play. Director Ron Giddings maintains a frenzied comic pace while drawing brilliant performances from all the cast members, who seem at the top of their game. They display a clear affinity with playwright Lindsay-Abaire that elevates this production to a bright new level of entertainment. Laura Gayvert invests her astonishing energy into defining bubbly Cass, maintaining her effervescence through the performance. Cass is determined to break out of the confines of the apartment shared with Kip and discover herself in doing everything on her 200-item list, starting with a trip to Niagara Falls. Thurston Cobb delivers a multidimensional Kip, who gains sympathy as the spurned husband whose main flaw may be his blandness. When his dark secret involving Barbie doll heads is revealed, the audience might be more amused than repulsed. Embarking on her bus journey to Niagara Falls, Cass meets Lois, a suicidal alcoholic who holds on her lap a blanket-wrapped pickle barrel that she intends to travel in over the falls. CeCe McGee as Lois finds every comic nuance in her portrayal to become Cass’ sardonic sidekick, balancing the heroine’s bubbly, extroverted qualities with her depressed, abandoned-spouse reality. Zany comic action is revved up when strange couple Karla and Glen arrive in several hysterical guises. They are tourists, hired detectives tracking down Cass, bellhops and members of a bizarre marital therapy group. CP favorite Carol Cohen has graced such productions as Enchanted April, Jake’s Women and Broadway Bound, but has never been more riotously funny nor more perfectly cast than here as Karla. She uses her considerable gifts of comic timing and her dancer’s ability to assume naturally a number of awkward poses while playing off her partner with panache. Bob Brewer is Cohen’s equal as her stage husband, Glen, the bumbling loser who gets funnier with every outlandish caper. Greg Garcia plays Captain Mike, who pilots the Maid of the Mist tourist vessel and has a fling with Cass, which includes satisfying prodigious appetites for wholesale quantities of cheese crackers. Amazingly versatile Alicia Sweeney summons the comic essence of a number of diverse characters, including blond-wigged tourist Barbara, a helicopter pilot, a theme restaurant waitress and group therapist Janie, who chooses clown garb to counsel three couples in need of marriage therapy. The all-volunteer Colonial Players has reached new comic boundaries with Wonder of the World to end one of its best seasons ever on an uproariously humorous level.

Hussein Chalayan turned heads with his Fall 2009 show with one particular dress design. Following on the “ass crack” trend created by a particular pair of Alexander McQueen jeans, Chalayan designed a dress featuring a fabric crack. Chalayan, a conceptual designer, created the dress as a comment regarding the current crack revealing creations. The short glittery dress features a skin toned fabric layer with an ass crack imprint on the rear. After stars like Heidi Klum were seen wearing crack revealing designs, Chalayan created the dress to both mock and join the trend, according to Trend de la Creme. A design for the trendy but modest, the Chalayan dress is a humorous take on an odd design.
