"Grease" prequel in the works at Paramount

Prequel to "Grease" is in the works.

Over 40 years after "Grease" premiered in theaters and electrified audiences, Paramount is working on a prequel to the iconic movie. 

The movie will be titled "Summer Loving," and will tell the story of Danny and Sandy before their meet-cute at Rydell High. 

Netflix's "Special" is very much so, and you shouldn't miss it

Ryan O’Connell's "Special" is a canny look at being gay and living with cerebral palsy.

The genius of the new Netflix show called “Special” is not in its situational comedy type setup about a gay writer with cerebral palsy (CP), but with its stars. It’s cast is so rich with talent it should be patented.

Theater Review: “Mr. & Mrs. Fitch”

“Mr. & Mrs. Fitch” plays through April 14, 2019 at Moxie Theatre, 6663 El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego.

“Gossip is just news that’s interesting,” says Mrs. Fitch (Sandy Campbell), one half of a team of gossip columnists in Douglas Carter Beane’s amusingly snarky 1998 two-hander “Mr. & Mrs. Fitch.”

She and husband Mr. Fitch (Andrew Oswald) have been writing a column for some years, getting invited to all the posh parties where they can mine a gossipy item or two.

Singer Kim English has died. She was 48

Kim English, 48, who had many dance club hits in the late '90s and early '00s, has died according to her label Nervous Records.

Theater Review: “Angels in America, Pt 2: Perestroika”

“Angels in America” plays in rotating repertory through April 20, 2019 at Cygnet Theatre, 4040 Twiggs St. in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park

Tony Kushner’s epic two-part play “Angels in America” continued at Cygnet Theatre last week when part 2 – “Perestroika” – opened. Both parts will now play in repertory through the end of the run on April 20.

I’m not kidding when I call them epic. Seeing them both is about a seven-hour commitment. I tell you this by way of noting that you can see them both in one day if you like.

Theater Review: “Cabaret"

“Cabaret” plays through April 29, 2019 at Coronado Playhouse, 1835 Strand Way, Coronado.

“Cabaret.” The title alone sounds like a party, and Coronado Playhouse’s configuration with cabaret seating enforces that impression. So does the pre-show action, with scantily-clad dancers roaming the house.

Hunter Brown’s excellent Emcee (Hunter Brown), promises us that everything here is beautiful and we are not to worry about anything.
