#337123 Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts I & II

Posted by Hoyaheel on Yesterday, 03:14 AM

Our season tickets (Balcony) were ~300 each? Not bad at all - that is 6 or 7 shows! I did Sunday matinees ( because husband came with me) so we'd go down and have lunch across the street (with a couple craft beers...) and then go to the show. We really enjoyed - even if Broadway musicals are much more my thing than his)


No clue how much season tix will be for next year with Hamilton, but I'm prepared. Either way will be cheaper than going to New York. But definitely not as cool ;-) I'm hoping there are other shows I want to see that season!

We did a few years of season tickets for the Broadway touring shows at the local (ish - 30 miles from home, in the town where I work) performing arts center, but this year there weren't many I wanted to see so I just did individual shows. With Hamilton touring next year, I imagine I'll need to get season Tix again to get seats...

Baby due in April https://www.msn.com/...date/ar-AAtDZsf


(I know this is mostly a "so what" but I am so sick of reading & posting about Harvey Weinstein!!)

#337101 Harrison Ford (Hans Solo weds...)

I love graham Norton. I think that the interviews he & Gosling have been doing together are fairly "scripted" in that they're each known for being....reticent? in interviews. But the humor they have together has been getting a lot of good press, so I'm sure they've been encouraged to keep it up.


And yeah, Ford is a little more "not there" than he needs to be to play that game.

I love Terry Crews more than ever.




“I let it go. And I understand why many women who this happens to let it go,” he tweeted. “Who’s going 2 believe you? ( few) What r the repercussions?(many) Do u want 2 work again? (Yes) R you prepared 2b ostracized?(No).”

And his wife is leaving him......


I saw that, and I didn't know he was married to Georgina Chapman! :shocked:


Really?? You must not have watched Joan & Melissa on the red carpet or read Lainey's fashion? She HATES Marchesa and the only reason so many wore it was because of Weinstein's power....

I'm guaranteeing none liked it but many/most did it as the cost of business for women in Hollywood.


That's the crux of the problem. For every one Merv Griffin [alleged] there are how many Weinsteins???

Yeah, there's no good fallout now and I don't think any actor or actress speaking up now about knowing or not knowing is telling the truth (or, the "whole" truth). It's understandable. He was an incredibly powerful man. Persecute him, CHANGE the status quo, and move on....I can't hold it against anyone who didn't say anything (victim blaming much - at least Donna Karan backtracked...) but don't speak up now about how you didn't know anything because we all know that's BS. Just say "it's horrible, we're so sorry this happened, THIS is what we're going to do NOW so that it doesn't happen again...."

Next up - the new book on Joan (I'm only a couple years behind, right? ;-)

Weinstein fired by his board....

But then we've known this for a looooooong time. Not only is he a sexual predator, he treats his employees badly in other ways. He has a horrible temper. Did anyone else read Twins of Tribeca? Thinly veiled fiction about the Weinstein brothers....

Infuriated that Lisa Bloom (daughter of Gloria Alred...) is one of his lawyers. He's "taking a break" to seek therapy and confront his issues head on.


His only issue is that, after 3 decades of harassing women, he got caught and outed publicly....

#337056 Harvey Weinstein

Get ready for it. There’s a big story that might be breaking soon. And even though it doesn’t involve a movie star proper, this is someone who’s worked with many, many movie stars. Who has made movie stars. Which means, if this scandal is as potentially explosive as it seems right now, we’ll be talking about the implications for months.

According to The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive yesterday, both The New York Times and The New Yorker are working on stories about Harvey Weinstein, specifically about his “personal behaviour”. Variety followed up with a report specifying that the publications are expected to be “detailing sexual allegations and improper workplace behaviour against him”. And that “some women making the charges are believed to be on the record”. Apparently the New York Times has been in contact with “dozens of current and former employees of Weinstein” and they could also have access “internal human resources documents”.


When THR reached out to Harvey for comment, he was all swagger:

"The story sounds so good, I want to buy the movie rights."

Perhaps he’s not worried because over the last few weeks, he’s been lining up a formidable legal team and securing the services of the best crisis management specialists in the business. And he’ll need it, as per Variety, Jodi Kantor, a respected and experienced journalist, is working on the story for The New York Times and Ronan Farrow has supposedly been on it for The New Yorker for almost a year. The NYT and The New Yorker aren’t exactly The National Enquirer and the Daily Mail.

Neither publication has confirmed what they’re publishing – or if they’re even publishing anything at all but Variety claims that one of the pieces could come as early as this week. If, that is, they’re not intimidated by Harvey’s reputation. Because Harvey Weinstein has long been known to be one of the most aggressive and intimidating power players in Hollywood, even without all the legal support that he’s already said to have enlisted. Also, not that the timing for this sh-t is ever great, but it’s especially unfortunate, where he’s concerned, because we’re just getting started on Oscar season. And Harvey is always a factor during Oscar season. This season, The Weinstein Company has three films that could be contenders: the critically acclaimed Wind RiverThe Current War, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Shannon, and The Upside which Joanna wrote during TIFF could have a “Blind Side” appeal to it for awards season. If – and it’s still a big IF right now – these two stories come out, Harvey’s personal drama will overshadow all of those projects. This, obviously, is not the priority discussion topic where Harvey is concerned should this story break, but as I mentioned off the top, the reverberations around any possible scandal will be wide, affecting so many different corners of the business.


The main corner, however, will be how the rest of Hollywood will react to whatever the NYT and The New Yorker have planned. Do you remember Rose McGowan’s tweet last year?

It was believed that Rose was referring to Robert Rodriguez, her former fiancé, whose film Planet Terror was distributed by Miramax (Harvey’s company).

This is what Rose tweeted yesterday, presumably after hearing about these imminent Harvey Weinstein stories, and repurposing his quote:

Note Asia Argento’s response to that tweet. It was Harvey Weinstein who gave Asia her first English-speaking role back in the 90s and then guided her career. Both Rose and Asia have much lower profiles in Hollywood now than they used to. Coincidence or conspiracy?

Keeping a very close watch on this one.

Yours in gossip,
