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.
‘There Will Be Blood’ to Sneak Into 14 Cities on Dec. 29 at Midnight
Paul Thomas Anderson’s “There Will Be Blood” is hand’s down one of the best films of 2007. The film stars an Oscar-worthy performance by a “Gangs of New York”-reminiscent Daniel Day-Lewis.
Unfortunately, the film will only open in limited New York City and Los Angeles theaters on Dec. 26 and will expand in Jan. 2008. Fortunately, 14 cities are being treated to a midnight sneak screening on Dec. 29.
The lucky ones are Austin, Boston (AMC Loews Boston Common 19), Chicago (AMC River East 21), Dallas, Denver, Miami, Minneapolis (Lagoon Cinema), Philadelphia, Portland, Sacramento, San Diego, Seattle, Toronto and Washington, D.C.
Tickets are already on sale for some of these cities. The director cut the following special video to announce the screenings, which I’ve uploaded to YouTube.
