Rita Gardner , an original cast member of the long-running Off Broadway phenomenon The Fantasticks , died Saturday of leukemia at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York. She was 87. Gardner’s death was announced by her friend and colleague Alex Rybeck on Facebook . In 1960, Gardner, who had recently appeared Off Broadway in the Jerry Herman musical review Nightcap , was cast in what would be her signature role: Luisa, or “The Girl,” in the Harvey Schmidt-Tom Jones musical The Fantasticks. Based loosely on Edmond Rostand’s 1894 play The Romancers , the musical told the allegorical story of two fathers who trick their children – The Girl, Luisa, and The Boy, Matt – into falling in love by pretending to oppose the union. The production, at a tiny Off Broadway venue in Greenwich Village called the Sullivan Street Playhouse, became a huge success, spawning a hit song (“Try To Remember”), running 42 years and boosting the careers of Gardner and other cast members … [Read more...] about Rita Gardner Dies: Original Cast Member Of ‘The Fantasticks’ Was 87
Sylvester stallone son died
Jim Post , who with then-wife Cathy under the band name Friend & Lover scored a Top 10 hit in 1968 with the enduring hippie anthem “ Reach Out of the Darkness ,” died of congestive heart failure Sept. 14 in Dubuque, Iowa. He was 82. His death was announced to The New York Times by former wife and children’s book author Janet Smith Post. The song, which reached #10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart during the summer of 1968, is often remembered for its opening lyric, sung by Cathy Conn Post, “I think it’s so groovy now that people are finally gettin’ together.” Like similar happy-go-lucky flower-power anthems of the era, from “Aquarius” to “Good Morning Starshine,” the Posts’ song has been used frequently in TV and film as a signifier of hippie optimism. Among its more notable appearances was in a 2013 episode of Mad Men , when the song played as the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy was being announced on TV. Born Jimmie David Post in Houston, Post was … [Read more...] about Jim Post Dies: Singer-Songwriter Of One-Hit Wonder “Reach Out Of The Darkness” Was 82

Alan Rickman , the late Harry Potter star, is making his mixed feelings about sticking with the franchise known through diary entries published Saturday by The Guardian. The diary entries about Potter demonstrate Rickman’s devotion to his character Professor Severus Snape but also his reluctance to lock himself in to a long-running franchise. As early as 2002, just after the release of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets , the second installment of the series, Rickman wrote that he’d spoken to his agent: “Reiterating no more HP. They don’t want to hear it.” Rickman opted to continue as Snape, however, a decision that was reinforced just before the filming of the fifth entry in 2005: The actor had been diagnosed with prostate cancer, and decided to see Potter through to its end. “Finally, yes to HP 5,” he writes. “The sensation is neither up nor down. The argument that wins is the one that says: ‘See it through. It’s your story.'” Rickman, who died from … [Read more...] about Alan Rickman Diaries Chronicle Ever-Changing Feelings On ‘Harry Potter’ Franchise
Though she has done versatile roles in movies like Jalwa, Agneepath, and Raja Hindustani , Archana Puran Singh is mostly known for her comic roles like Ms. Briganza from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Preeto in Mohabbatein . However, in an interview with Indian Express, Archana tells how she has more to give than just comedy and thinks that she has to follow Neena Gupta's footsteps and start asking for more challenging roles. Talking about her Kuch Kuch Hota Hai role, the actor said, "The chhaap(image) is so solid that a lot of people become puzzled as to what role should they offer me after Ms. Briganza." She added that even though 25 years passed since the movie was released, her character is still following her. "People feel that I am best suited for only comedy roles. As an actor, I feel deprived, cheated, and I have been left yearning for good roles," she said.
