YAY! Someone from MY HOMETOWN of Livingston NJ is doing something cool, well kinda, even though most people in my town aren’t very fond of him honestly, and I’m one of them. The only other famous person from our town is Chelsea Handler, and well STOP MAKING FUN OF YOUR HOME TOWN ON NATIONAL TELEVISION AND MAYBE I’LL LIKE YOU.
Clearly I’m not too happy with the people that become famous from my hometown, except for Jason Alexander (George from Seinfeld). It is not my hometown’s fault though, I just don’t like how these people turn it into a joke. It has one of the best school districts in the state, and has a high cost of living.
Christie took over the old high school gym, which is odd because we built a bigger state-of-the-art gym less than 10 years ago that would be perfect for the venue, but I guess because the old gym part of the original high school that maybe they decided to go with that route. Or maybe they just wanted a small room. There were protesters all over the oval in front of the school today and most were teachers.
In MY OPINION, Christie, darling, you will not become president. Everyone from my high school’s graduating class thinks you are dumb. You took our funding, when other things could have been cut. You have way too many terrible notches on your campaign belt before you even began running. Your reputation died 3 years ago. Although I must respect you as an LHS Alum, I cannot see you as president. I’m sorry but that is the truth.

This is actually a great idea from the marketing team of Something Rotten! Love their strategy
Although “Something Rotten” earned 10 Tony Award nominations, the only one it took home was for Christian Borle for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical. (PHOTO: Joan Marcus)
Usually a Broadway show that wins only one Tony Award, or just got nominated for one Tony, emphasizes the positive. Not “Something Rotten.” It ran a full-page ad in the NYTimes proclaiming itself a “Loser,” after taking home only 1 of the 10 awards for which it was nominated.
An excellent article recently published in the NYTimes explores the producers chutzpah. Reporterr Michael Paulson writes, ” ‘The “Rotten!’ ad was devised the day after the Tony Awards, when the show’s dejected marketing team gathered at the offices of its advertising agency, SpotCo, to figure out what to do next.”
After all, the irony of the whole thing is “Something Rotten” is about two struggling playwrights who are…

The famous movie, Clueless, that we all remember from our childhood is going to make its fabulous way to broadway! When? No clue. But the jukebox musical adaptation of the film has been announced this past week. The show will be written by Amy Heckerling, the amazing women who wrote the book for the film.
This shall be interesting.
Two-time Tony nominee Laurie Metcalf now will be co-starring with Bruce Willis when he makes his Broadway debut this fall in the stage adaptation of Stephen King’s novel “Misery,” replacing Elizabeth Marvel who has a scheduling conflict.
The play, like the 1990 movie that earned Kathy Bates an Academy Award, is about a deranged fan Annie Wilkes who holds her favorite romance novelist (Willis) captive. It’s scheduled to run at the Broadhurst Theatre from Oct. 22 through Feb. 7 with a Nov. 15 opening night (dates are still tentative).

So many #spiderman that I’ve lost count
There’s a new Spider-Man in town and you may not have any idea who he is. Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures announced that Tom Holland is set to be the film franchise’s new title-star, with director Jon Watts (Cop Car) slated to helm the next feature.
Not familiar with Holland’s name? You’re not alone. The British actor has never appeared inan action or comic book film before. His biggest role to date has been playing the title role inBilly Elliot in London’s West End. You are most likely to have seen him in theaters in 2012’sThe Impossible, co-starring next to Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor.
Director Watts is also a relative newcomer, with only a few feature films under his belt.
In a statement, Marvel Studiosgave insight into the selection process of both men.
Even though I would rather have a women as president, Donald Trump as president would be cool.
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency has been mocked as a publicity stunt, but a new poll suggests he’s gaining traction in New Hampshire.
According to a poll from the Suffolk University Political Research Center, 11 percent of GOP voters in New Hampshire support Trump, who finished second by just three points to the frontrunner, ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
“Jeb Bush continues to lead, but Donald Trump has emerged as an anti-Jeb Bush alternative in New Hampshire,” David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center in Boston, said in a statement. “Many of those who like Trump are voting for him, and although many more dislike him, the unfavorables are split up among many other candidates. It’s the politics of plurality.”

Considering he is from my home town, I’m not surprised honestly. I mean he seems alright but I mean you gotta support your home town right?
SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie‘s approval rating has plunged into the 30s at home, but one political pundit notes the presidential primary season is all about sound bites and Christie can boast about union showdowns and re-election in a blue state.
Christie has reportedly hired new campaign staff in New Hampshire, where the Republican governor should play to his strengths, said Seton Hall Associate Political Science Professor Matthew Hale.
“There’s no better politician today at town hall meetings, and those are really, really important in New Hampshire and Iowa,” Hale told WCBS 880’s Paul Murnane. “So I think he’s got to do a lot of them, and he’s got to do them well.”

So who remembers the hit show SMASH from a few years back? Well for those of you who never saw the AMAZING show, featuring up-comming stars like Jeremy Jordan, is about a group of people producing a show called Bombshell which centers around the life of Marilyn Monroe. No show has ever been brought to Broadway a show that centers around Ms. Monroe, the iconic movie star in the white dress. Bombshell was a musical written for the TV show that is now OFFICIALLY BEING MADE INTO A REAL LIFE VERSION TO BE BROUGHT TO BROADWAY!
Clearly I’m very excited!
It has been announced that the people who choreographed the TV show version of the amazing production will reprise their roles as the show comes to Broadway stages. Nothing has been announced though in terms of cast. Many fans are hoping that the original show’s broadway cast returns, which I would be happy about! But Christian Borle was a star on this show, but as the writer in the TV series.
All of us fans have questions, but for the purposes of this blog, BOMBSHELL IS BEING MADE IN REAL LIFE FOR BROADWAY! Again, clearly, I’m very excited about this!
Well, I’m not sure how many of y’all have heard but the classic film featuring Jack Black is set to come to Broadway at the end of this year. It will be held at the Winter Garden Theatre on Broadway and the buzz about the new musical is taking over my Facebook wall. Of course the same thing happened when the other hit film Bring It On came to Broadway about a year ago.
With the children angle of Matilda, and the rock vibe of Rock of Ages, this show is sure to bring the film back to life. It will star Alex Brightman (Big Fish) to take over Jack Black’s Role.
I mean I’m really excited about this show personally because I loved the film. But who doesn’t LOVE Jack Black!?!?!?
