'Agents of SHIELD': New initiative art teases team divide -- EXCLUSIVE

Agents-of-SHIELD.jpg

Last week, EW exclusively debuted the first in a series of new art from Marvel and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Art of Level Seven.” Each week, as we move towards the show’s May season finale, Marvel is releasing a different piece, which will tie in directly with the events of that week’s upcoming episode.

EW is proud to help Marvel introduce the art in advance of episode 18, “Providence,” which will air next Tuesday, April 15 at 9 p.m. ET. (Note that due to a scheduling change, ABC will air 2 hours of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with a repeat of “Turn, Turn, Turn” at 8 and the new episode airing at 9.) The piece, which details the big events of this past week’s outing and teases both the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the appearance of Hydra, was crafted by Paolo Rivera, who has designed multiple posters for Marvel Studios as well as Eisner-award winning comics.

EW again spoke with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jeff Bell about this week’s concept, and how it ties in to Tuesday’s episode.

This Week's Cover: David Fincher shoots 'Gone Girl' EW cover with Ben Affleck

When Entertainment Weekly approached Twentieth Century Fox about getting an exclusive inside look at the making of Gone Girl, an adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s 2012 smash best-selling novel due in theaters Oct. 3, the studio came back with a surprising reply: Director David Fincher was offering to shoot the cover himself. Not being crazy enough to turn down the Oscar-nominated provocateur who directed The Social Network, we said yes. Fincher dreamed up the image, which features Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne curled around his wife, Amy, played by Rosamund Pike. The result is an unsettling portrait of love gone demented.

Hear Idina Menzel's 'Here I Go' from the new Broadway musical 'If/Then' -- EXCLUSIVE

If you still haven’t gotten Idina Menzel’s soaring Frozen showstopper “Let It Go” out of your head (and rightly so), then we have bad news: we’ve got another Menzel track that you might not be able to stop humming.

One of spring’s most anticipated Broadway musicals is the newest entry from Next to Normal team Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, who have reunited with director Michael Greif for their original musical If/Then. The show will mark the Broadway return of Menzel, who hasn’t graced the main stem stage since her Tony-winning turn as Elphaba in Wicked.

If/Then stars Menzel as Elizabeth, a woman on the verge of turning 40 who moves to Manhattan in the hopes of starting over in every aspect of her life. Below, EW’s got an exclusive sneak peek at Menzel and her onstage romantic interest James Snyder singing “Here I Go” during the show’s sitzprobe (the first time the singers perform with the orchestra in rehearsal).

First look at 'Aladdin,' Disney's magical, Broadway-bound musical -- EXCLUSIVE

Several of the films in Disney’s beloved Renaissance period — that is, the golden era of animated films that includes classics like Beauty and the BeastThe Little Mermaid, and The Lion King – have already been turned into big, beautiful Broadway musicals by the folks at Disney Theatrical. Now, there’s a new movie being prepped for the stage, and EW has your first look at the production!

The latest Disney tale to hit the proscenium is Aladdin, the 1992 musical fantasy about a street urchin who finds a magic lamp and releases a genie (iconically voiced by Robin Williams). The show is currently previewing at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto, where it’ll run through January 5, 2014. Adam Jacobs stars as the titular pauper, with Courtney Reed as Jasmine, James Monroe Iglehart as the Genie, and in an exciting casting coup, Jonathan Freeman will play Jafar, the role he created in the film.

The creative team for the show is downright magical: Tony winner Casey Nicholaw directs and choreographs, with sets, costumes, and lighting by acclaimed designers Bob Crowley, Gregg Barnes, and Natasha Katz, respectively. With the help of bookwriter Chad Beguelin, Disney maestro Alan Menken has composed new songs for the full score, which includes the classics from the film (like “A Whole New World” and “Friend Like Me”) which Menken collaborated on with lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice.

Now that you’ve got all the info, check out EW’s exclusive sneak peek at the magical stage production going on in Toronto. The magic carpet will fly into Broadway’s New Amsterdam Theatre beginning February 26, 2014.

Sarah Jessica Parker shrieks over pointe shoes in New York City Ballet reality show -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

SARAH-JESSICA-PARKER.jpg

Sarah Jessica Parker is not Carrie Bradshaw, but that doesn’t mean the lines don’t blur a little bit — especially when shoes are involved.

In a new reality show, city.ballet, premiering Nov. 4 on AOL, Parker takes audiences into the world of the New York City Ballet. The idea of a reality show about a well-respected institution like the New York City Ballet and its dancers might seem like a bit of an oxymoron, but through Parker’s guidance and the cooperation of the Ballet, city.ballet hopes to give an unparalleled look at the lives of professional dancers — right down to their blisters and bloody feet.

It’s not the poppy confection of Center Stage, the hellish nightmare of Black Swan, the surrealist fantasy of The Red Shoes, or a tawdry, exploitative reality show. It’s just real, and it proves that the lives of these dancers are difficult enough without manufactured drama of reality television (or the threat of black feathers sprouting through their backs).

Take a look at two exclusive clips from city.ballet below — one has ballet master in chief Peter Martins explaining the stakes, and the other shows Parker having a Carrie Bradshaw moment in a closet full of pointe shoes.
