More shows a-comin’ in what looks to be a busy fall, but it’s a summer Tony winner that’s still packing ‘em in. Kinky Boots, which scored Best Musical, Best Score (for Cyndi Lauper), and Best Actor in a Musical (Billy Porter), among other trophies, recouped its running costs in what’s been a staggering seven months for Broadway (even The Book of Mormon took longer, though Kinky has a few hundred more seats per show to sell, in all fairness). The Glass Menagerie, boasting ecstatic reviews (including ours) has extended seven extra weeks to play through February 2014, Taxi stars Danny DeVito and Judd Hirsch take on Neil Simon in L.A., and the season’s love affair with Tennessee Williams continues in New Haven this time, with resident True Blood hottie Joe Manganiello (Alcide, to HBO fans) taking on brutish, bruised Stanley Kowalski: (click on the links below to read the full reviews):
Tag: Danny DeVito (1-3 of 3)
For the first time since starring together in the hit comedy series Taxi, Danny DeVito and Judd Hirsch will reunite onstage for Neil Simon’s 1972 comedy The Sunshine Boys. The show will debut at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles, with opening night scheduled for Oct. 2.
The show focuses on the two-man vaudevillian team Lewis and Clark, who grew to hate each other by the end of their 40-something-year run as a performing pair. Willie Clark (DeVito) resents Al Lewis (Hirsch) for his decision to retire before Clark was ready to hang up their hats and canes. When an offer arises for the two to do one last show together, the men face a grudging-but-hilarious reunion.
DeVito is no stranger to the curmudgeon in the striped pajamas: He starred alongside the late Richard Griffiths in the West End production of The Sunshine Boys in London last summer. Although DeVito described his stage experience with Griffiths as “one of the happiest times” he’s ever spent, he is excited to reunite with Hirsch for the L.A. production, directed by Thea Sharrock.

Have you ever wanted to share a bottle of tequila with George Clooney until he got so drunk that he mistakenly thought you were Stacy Keibler? OK, so we can’t really help you out with the second half of that scenario, but the first half is suddenly much more plausible thanks to Clooney’s latest business venture.
The sexier-with-age movie star is teaming up Rande Gerber to create Casamigos, a new brand of tequila. According to Vanity Fair, Gerber and Clooney will sign every bottle that is made, number it and even taste it themselves (aka you’re sharing a drink with George Clooney … get it?). But as delicious and tempting as it all sounds, we always imagined that Clooney was more of a scotch neat kind of guy.
But Clooney isn’t the first celebrity to surprise us with his taste in alcohol, and we’re sure he won’t be the last. Here’s a rundown of some celebrities who have given the business of booze a try. Who matches up best with his or her drink of choice?
