Story By: G. H. HARDING ****


ANGRY INCH --- Atlantic Records has announced the release of Hedwig And The Angry Inch – Original Broadway Cast Recording - the musical companion to the eight-time Tony-nominated show starring Neil Patrick Harris. The release comes fifteen years after the label released the cast recording for the original production in 1999 and thirteen years following Atlantic’s release of the original motion picture soundtrack for the film incarnation.


The album is produced by Hedwig-composer Stephen Trask, Tony Award nominated sound designer; platinum-selling record producer Tim O’Heir, and the production’s music director Justin Craig.


Hedwig-composer and producer Stephen Trask said, “Anyone who has spent more than five minutes with me in the last three months knows how excited I am by the new versions of these songs. The talents of Neil and Lena and this amazing f*cking band have made these the best version of the score ever. After years of work…

Wine Spectator’s recent interview with Brad Pitt is on newsstands June 3rd.


On the estate he and Angelina Jolie bought in 2012 for an estimated $60 million: “We became impassioned with this place, which could produce its own wine, its own food, and become a place where artists could congregate and share ideas.”


On being a farmer, and his love for the land: “I’m a farmer now. I love learning about the land and which field is most suitable for which grape, the drama of September and October: Are we picking today? Where are the sugar levels? How is the acidity? Is it going to rain? It’s been a schooling for me. In the off months, I enjoy cleaning the forest and …

' A NORMAL HEART' IS AN OUTSTANDING PRESENTATION

**** THE GLORIOUS CORNER
Story By: G. H. Harding ****


 A NORMAL HEART --- Ever watch something that just exceeds your expectations on every level? HBO’s A Normal Heart, which premiered this past weekend, was such an exceptional production, that I will go on record right now as saying it’s the best thing I've seen this year. Larry Kramer’s poignant, pounding, play, which first premiered in 1985, created a furor of its own since it denounced everyone from then-NYC Mayor Ed Koch to President Reagan who steadfastly never mentioned the word AIDS. As People magazine said in a great review, “The Normal Heart isn't a period piece or a cautionary tale; it’s a bulletin from the front lines, a heart-stopping report about the terrifying progress of AIDS as it sweeps through and decimates Manhattan’s gay population.”


The pacing from director Ryan Murphy is just superb. Though the play was presented at various times, there’s no question that the fly in the ointment was Kramer himself; volatil…

PATRICK DEMPSEY TO HELP SOLVE MEDICAL CASES

Image
CrowdMed, an online crowdsourced medical diagnosis platform that helps solve even the world's most difficult medical cases, today announced that actor Patrick Dempsey has made an investment in the company. Almost one in 10 Americans – and 350 million people globally – are affected by the approximately 7,000 different types of rare or difficult-to-diagnose medical conditions. With this investment, Dempsey is working with CrowdMed to help expand the platform and give an additional resource to those facing undiagnosed illnesses.


"CrowdMed was designed to help people in need who have nowhere to turn, no options and no answers, which is the same reason I founded The Patrick Dempsey Cancer Center for Hope & Healing," said Dempsey. "After meeting with several Silicon Valley healthcare startups, I was immediately drawn to CrowdMed's mission of helping those who have run out of alternatives. I remember being overwhelmed when my mother was diagnosed with ovarian canc…

MAKSIM CHMERKOVSKIY ON WENDY WILLIAMS SHOW

Maks Chmerkovskiy On Wendy Williams


"Dancing With The Stars" winning couple, Maks Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis, joined Wendy Williams in her Hot Topics segment this morning, where Maks confirmed he would would accept a role as one of the judges if the show offered it to him.

Maks said, "I'm not Simon [Cowell]. I'm not a nice judge. I'm a good judge. I judge the way it's supposed to be. I know this business, I've been in it, I grew up in it. Somebody asked me yesterday why I started dancing and I once again thought about it. I was 4 years old. Who knows why. Spending 30 years in an industry, that you, you know, I think I've done a little bit in it. I know what I'm talking about. Unlike some of the guest judges that we had this season."

GEORGE HAMILTON TALKS ABOUT ELIZABETH TAYLOR

In the Hollywood of the early ’60s, young George Hamilton was in the right place at the right time. “The studios told me: ‘Date all the girls you can — just make sure they are under contract with us.’ I asked to see their roster!” George jokes with Closer in an exclusive interview.


George dated many of the era’s most sought-after beauties, including the beloved Elizabeth Taylor. In the new issue of Closer Weekly he opens up about their relationship more than ever before.


“Elizabeth was a unique human being,” George reminisces with Closer. “She was one of a kind. She could stay up all night and play cards with you or get on a plane and go anywhere. She was fun. She was bigger than life.”
