  • Summertime in New York!
    Even though it's felt like summer for several weeks, this week the season officially arrived. Along with the summer came the Shakespeare in the Park gala. (Measure for Measure and All's Well that Ends Well are being presented in rep this summer.) On Monday, stars came out for the gala, and both Theater Mania and have photo coverage. (Look for Josh Charles, Will Swenson & Audra McDonlad (both are Shakespeare in the Park alumni) and Public Theater founder Joseph Papp's widow, Gail Papp.

    And a little summer treat from the S.S. Anything Goes:

  • Farragut North Update
    It was announced this week that George Clooney's film adaptation of the Beau Willimon play Farragut North, which, on film, will be called The Ides of March, will open the Venice Film Festival on August 31. You may remember that as a play at the Atlantic, Farragut North starred John Gallagher, Jr., and Chris Noth. (Both were very good, with Johnny capturing the hunger of a young political operative.) The film stars the talented Ryan Gosling, Clooney and Marisa Tomei. The film is set for release on the best day of the year, October 7!
