Magic Michael

Magic Michael

BY DAVID NOH | I’ll start with a confession, and some of you may relate: I was hesitant to interview Michael Urie. He’s so very talented, smart, funny, and handsome that I thought — in a very special and gay insecure way — “He’s got to be a bitch.” What a pleasure, then, to report that […]

The Women He Loves

The Women He Loves

BY GARY M. KRAMER | Seth Sikes has a powerful, elegant voice, which he uses to sing standards made famous by Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, and Barbra Streisand, among a bevy of beloved divas. Sikes doesn’t try to perform like the divas who are his heroes; his show, instead, is his own personal tribute to them. […]

Big Ben

BY DAVID NOH | Consummate showman and ultimate survivor Ben Vereen is making his movie comeback in Oren Moverman’s “Time Out of Mind,” starring Richard Gere.

As exquisitely pretty and earthy real as ever, she took some time off from […]

Hollywood Insiders Spoof Hollywood’s Insides

BY GARY M. KRAMER | Is indie film actress Halley Feiffer (“The Squid and the Whale,” and daughter of renowned cartoonist and satirist Jules Feiffer) playing a fictionalized version of herself in “He’s Way More Famous Than You”? Does it matter? This funny, observant, but often cringe-inducing film about celebrity culture — featuring cameos from Ben […]

Stuck in the Basement With You

Stuck in the Basement With You

BY CHRISTOPHER BYRNE | The first thing you need to know about “Buyer & Cellar” is that it’s a hilarious and heartfelt comedy, one of the most delightful evenings to be had on the New York stage right now. Jonathan Tollins’ new one-man show was inspired by a home design book written by Barbara Streisand. In […]
