CHICAGO – It is the simple, timeless stories that work best when they are mounted again on Broadway, and the musical “Pippin” stays true to that assertion. Taking the concepts and the songs from a play that debuted in 1972, and featuring one of those original cast members in a key role, the National Touring revival of “Pippin” is being performed in Chicago at the Cadillac Theatre until August 9th, 2015.
On the Set: Into the Wee Hours of the Morning, ‘The Dark Knight’ Lights Up
CHICAGO – I told Phil Tadros (my on-the-street Hollywood cameraman) that his first two “The Dark Knight” video segments were good but could be better.
I encouraged him to dig deeper. This time, we bring you what you’ve been asking for: set footage. As in his second segment, he again uses the access-a-friend’s-apartment route.
This video was shot around 1 a.m. on Friday, June 15 at Clarendon and Cuyler in Chicago. At the 1:29 video mark, Gary Oldman (who plays Lt. James Gordon) can be seen in the black suit.
