The Les Miz Movie Preview Proves to Be Everything Normal People Hate about Theater People

Sad, but true. I know it’s hard for these Hollywood actors to understand but PEOPLE HAVE SUNG LIVE WHILE BEING FILMED BEFORE.

Lea Michele Turning Into a Mini Diva?

RENT: Live on Broadway This Week!

Hey guys! Right now I’m literally looking outside the window onto the beach. Yup, it’s a Modern Age vacation. Anyhoo I needed to make sure I told you guys about one thing before I completely detach from the world. (Do you know how hard it is to blog from someone’s iPhone?) The thing I wanted …
