‘Jagged Little Pill’ by Alanis Morissette heads to Broadway
NEW YORK (AP) — "You Oughta Know" Alanis Morissette is coming to Broadway.
The singer-songwriter has allowed songs from her 1995 breakthrough album "Jagged Little Pill" to be used in a new musical and producers plan to land it on Broadway this fall. "You Oughta Know" was a song on that Grammy-winning album.
"Jagged Little Pill" played the American Repertory Theater last summer. It's directed by Diane Paulus and has an original story by Diablo Cody, who wrote "Juno."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charlize Theron had wanted to work again with screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman since the movie "Young Adult," in which Theron got to play a true mess of a character — alcoholic, all-around stunted and viciously hilarious.
NEW YORK (AP) — The title character of Jason Reitman's "Tully" descends not from the clouds, carried by an umbrella in the wind, but glides cheerfully through the front door on a black night. She arrives just as Marlo (Charlize Theron), the mother of two plus an unplanned-for newborn, is reaching the limits of exhaustion.
Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody continues to explore the travails of being a mom
In “Juno,” starring Ellen Page, Diablo Cody wrote an Oscar-winning screenplay about a snarky, expectant 16-year-old girl reaching parenthood before she reached high school graduation. With “Young Adult,” starring Charlize Theron, Cody focused on a depressed, divorced 30-something hellbent on winning back her former boyfriend whose wife just had their first child. Her dramatic focus in “Ricki and the Flash,” starring Meryl Streep, was a self-centered woman who abandoned her children to chase a dream of becoming a rock star. Her Emmy-winning Showtime series “United States of Tara” starred Toni Collette as a suburban mom with multiple personality disorder.
With eight tentpoles getting most of the summer opening hype, I chose eight movies that aren't likely to make hundreds of millions at the box office. But I want to see them more than fifth "Jurassic Park" picture.
Here they are, in order of release/Lincoln opening date:
Here’s what’s playing this summer at the movies
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dates are subject to change.
"Avengers: Infinity War" (April 27) — The ultimate superhero mash-up, Iron Man, Black Panther, Captain America, Star Lord and all your Marvel favorites assemble to face the mad titan Thanos.
"The Week Of" (on Netflix April 27) — Adam Sandler is the middle-class father of the bride and Chris Rock the wealthy father of the groom in this wedding comedy.
Battle of the Network stars
The idea of watching Bryan Cranston as mad-as-hell anchor Howard Beale is intriguing and expensive. Hes currently tackling the role on stage in London. Youll just have to settle for the original 1976 film Network, which earned Peter Finch a posthumous Oscar, defeating a mad-as-hell Sylvester Stallone, who was contending as Rocky Balboa.
Alanis Morissette's album 'Jagged Little Pill' is to become a musical.
The 'Ironic' hitmaker has teamed up with screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Diane Paulus to bring her seminal 1995 album to life on stage in the US next year, a team which is a "dream come true" for the singer/songwriter.
The show will be debuted at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts first before hitting New York.
