The Perfect Hatewatch: Anne Hathaway Singing at Joe’s Pub

Does anyone have $100-300 that they’d like to give me for the sole purpose of having me produce the world’s greatest hatewatching review of a live musical performance? If so, please contact me, because this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to finally earn the title of Player Hater of the Year at the Player Haters’ Ball.

Anne Hathaway will be singing the songs of Kander and Ebb’s wartime Berlin musical, Cabaret, live in concert on October 24th at Joe’s Pub.

It’s the perfect hatewatching storm: Anne Hathaway + Broadway musical + live. And they named the thing “Perfectly Marvelous.” C’mon! They are simply asking for it!

Ok, sure the show is a benefit for the Public Theater’s new space — which indeed is a worthy cause — but we all know how this is going to go down. Lots of fake self-concious mugging and *serious* acting/singing moments.

Maybe she’ll bring out her friend James Franco:

Or maybe she’ll “apply the truth” of Sally Bowles, she’ll become a self-absorbed, completely oblivious performer … oh wait…
