Disney In Depth: Recognizing The Next Disney Legends
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Two years ago, in light of the D23 Expo 2015, I named six individuals paramount to the success of The Walt Disney Company who should be named Disney Legends, the highest honor that can be bestowed. I think it is inevitable that Joe Rodhe, for instance, renowned Imagineer with those awesome earrings, who I contended should become a Disney Legend, will one day attain that honor. This prompted me to reflect on individuals within The Walt Disney Company, whether they have more recently joined the corporation or have been directly or indirectly part of its framework, who have a high chance of being recognized as Disney Legends at some point.

I had planned on publishing a column about the next set of individuals who would likely be recognized as Disney Legends, but The Walt Disney Company beat me to the punch by recently issuing a press release of its nine forthcoming Disney Legends. You’ll have to take my word that I predicted Stan Lee, Garry Marshall, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill would be named as Disney Legends this year. That said, I am excited to share my thoughts on these four, as well as five others, who will obtain this major honor at the D23 Expo.

Theater Review: The Imbible: A Spirited History of Drinking

The Imbible: A Spirited History of Drinking cast

The Imbible: A Spirited History of Drinking
Created by Anthony Caporale
New World Stages
New York, NY
February 2017

“To alcohol: the cause of and solution to all of life’s problems.” – Homer Simpson

On a recent Saturday evening, my wife and I took in The Imbible: A Spirited History of Drinking show at New World Stages in midtown Manhattan. Created by Anthony Caporale, who is both the founder of the Broadway Theatre Studio and Director of Beverage Studies at the Institute of Culinary Education, the show is like a college history lecture MIXED with the post-class bar crawl. It combines Caporale’s passions for history, mixology, and all things alcohol into a two hours of hilarious song and dances numbers, ridiculous costume changes, legitimate history, and of course ALCOHOL. As a history teacher by day and avid drinker at night, this felt like a show specially designed for me. And for those thinking, “I don’t know, I can drink without the history,” I assure you, the drinks are delicious, and the show is wildly entertaining, thus making the The Imbible‘s value much higher than your average night at a city bar.

Disney In Depth: Revisit These Overlooked Disney Songs (Part 1)
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Hundreds of new Disney songs surfaced in the past few decades, many of them defining our childhood and young adult years. We listened to them on an endless loop via our cassettes and CDs. Many tunes, however, may have escaped our memories or even not entered our lives at all. The world of Disney music is vast in both scope and setting, ranging from our television screens and home video to the theme parks and on stage.

This first edition of a two-part feature on Disney In Depth explores the songs you may have missed or forgotten, but should very well revisit.

Meet the ‘Wild Women Of Planet Wongo’ – An Interactive Delight
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Wild Women of Planet Wongo Logo

The other night, my wife and I took in one of the most enjoyable evenings of our lives, and spent the night with the Wild Women of Planet Wongo. Described on their website as “an immersive sci-fi comedy,” the show is 90+ minutes of craziness, costumes, and hilarious songs that allows guests to be a part of the performance. Combining the classic sci-fi vibe of the late 50s and early 60s, the intentional cheesiness of Star Trek, and catchiness of hit off-broadway musicals, Wild Women of Planet Wongo is a show like nothing you’ve seen before.

More below.

HBO To Re-Air Carrie Fisher’s ‘Wishful Drinking’ This Weekend
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Carrie Fisher's Wishful Drinking

Back in 2010 HBO aired a filmed documentary of Wishful Drinking, the late Star Wars star Carrie Fisher‘s autobiographical one-women stage show in which she talks about her life and career. HBO’s special combined the stage show with interviews with family and friends as well as archival footage.

To help celebrate the life of Fisher after her untimely passing earlier this all-around terrible week, HBO has announced that they will be re-airing Wishful Drinking this weekend. The 76-minute special will play this Sunday night, January 1st, at 9PM on the primary HBO channel.

New ‘Harry Potter’ Book On The Way
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Book

If you’re a Harry Potter fanatic who’s struggled to fill the immense void left when the final movie based on author J.K Rowling‘s main book series came and went almost five years ago now, you’re probably pretty excited these days. Not only is there a new movie on the way later this year, but a new stage play that will actually continue the story of Potter himself titled Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is also set to open this summer.

Unfortunately for most fans, they won’t get to see said stage play—at least not when it’s first released, anyway—because it’s being performed in London’s West End at the Palace Theatre. Perhaps it will do well and eventually branch out, but those anxious to take in this new story aren’t going to want to wait, anxiously hoping they’ll get to see the play someday. Thankfully, and very smartly, it’s been revealed that there will be another (quite fitting) way for fans to enjoy Cursed Child: as a new book.

You can find more information below.

‘Frozen’ Broadway Show Will Hit The Stage In 2018

Disney character Elsa of "Frozen" shapes snow and ice

With Frozen being the massive hit that it is today, there is no way that Disney will ever “let it go” (Yes I went there). Frozen Fever, an animated short, was released last year and attached to showings of Cinderella. And now we are getting a sequel.

But it doesn’t stop with just the films. In fact, the film was such a huge success that Disney announced that there would be a Broadway adaptation. Now it appears that they have ironed out the kinks, and have set an early engagement, which will then be followed by an official release. More on the story below.

Disney In Depth: Reviewing Disney Fantasy’s Musical Productions
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

As the Disney Fantasy nears closer to celebrating four years on the open seas, and I recently returned from setting sail on my third voyage on the magnificent vessel, I wanted to place focus on its five main musical productions in the Walt Disney Theatre.

Two of the three featured musicals are exclusive to the Disney Fantasy, two honor the arrival and departure of guests, and the other is appropriately named Believe. Reviewing these five shows required having seen each of them multiple times and evaluating them in comparison to not only one another on the Disney Fantasy, but also those on Disney Cruise Line’s other ships and within the domestic theme parks. Let’s dive right in!

David Fincher Collaborating With Trent Reznor On ‘Fight Club’ Rock Opera
BAADASSSSS!   |  

David Fincher's Fight Club

The first rule of Fight Club is…you do not talk about Fight Club.

The second rule of Fight Club is…you do not talk about Fight Club.

But singing about Fight Club? That’s cool.

Believe it or not, True Believers, David Fincher‘s hypnotically brutal and satirical cult classic of Gen X masculinity gone horribly – and hilariously – wrong is looking to become the latest cinematic masterpiece to invade the Great White Way.

Fincher and Nine Inch Nails front-man (and one half of the composing team on his last three films – The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Gone Girl) Trent Reznor are working on a Broadway rock opera adaptation of the filmmaker’s excoriated, and later celebrated, 1999 release Fight Club.
