Neil Patrick Harris wants you to be the star of his autobiography

Neil Patrick Harris has an autobiography coming out this fall, but unlike most autobiographies and memoirs, Doogie’s is going to be a choose-your-own-adventure style book, allowing you to make or not make some of the same choices as NPH.

"You will decide whether to try out for Doogie Howser, M.D.. You will decide whether to spend years struggling with your sexuality. You will decide what kind of caviar you want to eat on board Elton John’s yacht," it promises…

It’s coming out in December and it’s going to be absolute bloody Oscar chum, but I’m looking forward to finally seeing a film adaptation of this Broadway hit. I like musicals. Sue me.

New TV trailer spot for ‘Rock of Ages’

Yeah, I’m a fan of well done Broadway film adaptations and this looks like it’s gonna be pretty good. Probably not knock-your-socks-off, life-changing good, but worth the price of admission.

Rock of Ages hits theaters June 15

Gird your loins… here’s Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark on Letterman

Yes, Turn Off the Dark is still going, band the show visited David Letterman the other night to showcase its… thing. Whatever it is. I’m sure kids might like it maybe, I don’t know. I’m not terribly impressed.

Christina Hendricks’ clothes catch fire at the Tony Awards

Frankly, I’m surprised that Christina Hendricks can even wear normal clothes at all. I’ve always imagined that she had to have her entire wardrobe sprayed down with fire retardant so that when she puts anything on, it doesn’t instantly burn into flame from her hotness. If that’s the case, I think that’s God’s way of saying she should just go around naked all the time.

So… Spider Man: Turn Off the Dark has been “reimagined” and is coming back to Broadway

The first time around, despite having spent millions on the production, Spider Man: Turn Off the Dark was a flop, a sham, a shame and a disaster. Reviews were mediocre, actors were getting seriously injured left and right, performances were delayed or canceled and it seemed like the only reason people were even buying tickets was with the hope that they’d see someone break their pelvis. And then Julie Taymor left the production and it was all put on hold.

2011 Tony Awards announced

I don’t know how many theater geeks we’ve got here, but it’s Tony Awards season time. Looking at the nominees, I’m not that familiar with some of the specific productions that are nominated. I’ve heard of most of the plays, and all of the musicals in the Best Musical category, but I don’t keep up on the specifics of Broadway and I haven’t seen any of them. I was happy to see Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s The Book of Mormon get quite a few nominations— that is one that I’ve read reviews of, and the reviews that I’ve read have been nothing short of absolutely glowing.
