While the Little Mermaid Live television special may have been postponed, the live-action remake of the blockbuster animated film musical is still in the works. We asked our social media followers to sound off on their ideal casting for the film.

The film would include songs from the 1989 animated film (with lyrics by the late Howard Ashman), much of which was included in the 2008 Broadway musical adaptation. Deadline reports that Tony and Pulitzer winner Lin-Manuel Miranda will also co-write music with multiple Oscar winner Alan Menken, whose prolific output has included Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Newsies, Little Shop of Horrors, Pocahontas, Galavant, and more.

Had a family crisis today.  My parents (while in their car) were hit by a drunk driver.  Not sure how much I will be able to post in the next few days.  It was a ray of sunshine to see the news about Darren in Versace.

On the morning of the third day of my step-father's stay at Hospital X, Hospital X called us and told my family that my parents' insurance would pay Hospital X for my step-father to stay a third night, that he would be discharged the next day (4th day).  Then 15 minutes later, Hospital X notified us that they decided to discharge my step-father after all on that day (the third day).   Again, this was despite the fact that the insurance company had told Hospital X that the insurance company would pay Hospital X for the third night, given that there was a medical basis to be concerned about my step-father's heart condition that needed to be monitored further (that heart condition was aggravated by all the trauma his body suffered from the drunk driver crashing into my parents' car).

I'm so sorry to hear about your parents' accident, Poppy.  That's awful. I hope your Dad was able stay the extra night for monitoring. You and your parents should not be having to deal with such things just to receive the best care they need in an already stressful and emotional situation.  How is your mom doing? I hope the "serious injuries" are at least injuries that they will fully recover from.

When my dad was hospitalized, I had the hospital staff train me in how to move him, bathe him, etc. Don't be afraid to ask for such assistance to help ease your worries when your parents are ready to be released. Their insurance may also pay for nurses/aides to come to your home to help as needed when they are released. 

Sending you and your parents lots of love and positive thoughts and energies. heart heart heart

Thanks so much for your kind words, Lilikoiluv.  I really appreciate it.  heart :hug heart 

A friend recommended I appeal the hospital doctor's decision to discharge my step-father.  So I told the hospital I was giving them notice that I was appealing their decision to discharge, and that  I needed to speak with the appropriate patient relations representative of the hospital to receive instructions of their formal process to appeal.  The director of the hospital then overrode their doctor's decision to discharge that day. 

Meanwhile my sweet husband was on the phone speaking with the case worker of my parents' insurance company.  He persuaded her somehow to transfer my step-father to another hospital, convincing them that Hospital X was ready to discharge my step-father despite  his high heart rate and other health issues (and despite the fact that the insurance company had told Hospital X that the insurance company would pay for the third night).  So they had an ambulance pick him up in the middle of the night and transfer him to another hospital (Hospital Y), where he stayed for that night and the next.  During the time at Hospital Y, the physical therapist also helped him walk (which he hadn't done since the accident).  So that really worked out, but it took a lot of effort.

Lilikoiluv wrote:You and your parents should not be having to deal with such things just to receive the best care they need in an already stressful and emotional situation.

That is so true, Lilikoiluv.  But this kind of thing happens all the time, where the patients (and their families) are just struggling to keep up with how to get immediate medical help for their injuries, not to mention having to struggle with pain, and their emotional turmoil such as their fears of how life in the future will include new struggles.  It's awful, because this is when people are at their most vulnerable.

Lilikoiluv wrote:How is your mom doing? I hope the "serious injuries" are at least injuries that they will fully recover from.
My mom was less injured than my step-father because the drunk driver's car hit the driver side of my parents' car and my step-father was driving.  My mother has a deep gash on one hand (the trauma doctor at the first hospital, Hospital X, said it was a "superficial" wound, but when my mother saw her regular doctor, her doctor said it was deep and that one of her tendons was actually exposed!).  Her doctor said it was possible if it gets infected that it may not function fully, so we are hoping it doesn't get infected, by trying to keep it clean with new bandages/dressings and prescribed antibiotic cream.   My step-father has a broken clavicle, broken sternum, two fractured ribs, and his heart seemed to go into crisis mode, because his heart rate was extremely elevated (he already had a heart condition).  We will find out more when he sees a cardiologist and an orthopedic doctor, whether there will long-term consequences.  I am struggling with fears that there will be, just because of how old and fragile he already was before the accident.

Lilikoiluv wrote:When my dad was hospitalized, I had the hospital staff train me in how to move him, bathe him, etc. Don't be afraid to ask for such assistance to help ease your worries when your parents are ready to be released.

This is very helpful.  Thanks Lilikoiluv.  He was released today.  We asked and they gave us some brief instructions.   We are definitely communicating with the insurance company to see if we can have them cover partially or entirely, some in-home care. The problem is that it is a slow process (from our perspective) because the insurance company first requires my step-father see his primary care doctor.  My brother who they live with was planning to go back to work on Monday, and I don't live that close to them. We are trying to get in-home help at least for Tuesday (it is too late for Monday), so my brother was forced to take off from work again for Monday.  We will have to be paying out of pocket until we find out if the insurance company can help cover the cost of in-home care.  On Monday, I will be visiting an agency that gives advice and referrals to see if Medi-Cal or Medicare pays for any portion as well.

Darren Criss should play Harry Potter in The Cursed Child

August 18, 2017

hedwig - Darren Appreciation Thread: General News about Darren for 2017 - Page 12 Tumblr_inline_ouvoyt86BA1qe3h8a_500

Darren Criss has always dreamed of playing Harry Potter. Is The Cursed Child his way to do that?


It’s time. Well, it’s almost time. Once The Cursed Child comes to Broadway and the original cast all play their roles, it will be time. Time to fulfill a prophecy written in 2009 on Youtube that a boy with curly hair fulfills after playing Harry Potter in a play (musical).


It’s always been Criss’s dream to play the boy who lived on stage, and now that the Cursed Child is coming to Broadway, could it happen? He wouldn’t be playing the young Harry that he played in A Very Potter Musical, but he’s getting old enough to play Albus’s father! It wouldn’t be a perfect fit, but it could work if they really wanted it!


Imagine the actor having his dream come true, and playing his favorite character on stage! He has the ability to play the character, and the experience to possibly make him someone they would want! Of course, he’s famous for STARKID, his role in How to Succeed in Business, Hedwig and the Angry Inch!


Dream for the fans too!


For me, this would also be a dream come true. As much as I love STARKID’s productions on Youtube including their Harry Potter trilogy. Even though I probably wouldn’t be able to see the show, I love knowing that actors’ dreams are coming true. And Darren Criss is just like us, a fan of this mega phenomenon, who probably has wild theories and opinions about Harry Potter and Hermione, and who knows what else!


It will be great to see the original cast play on Broadway for what I hope is a long time, and that the show doesn’t close before it’s time like most show on the Great White Way. Who knows, now that I’ve opened the door to personal opinions about who should play who on Broadway, maybe we’ll write more about it!

Stars reading about our stars: Sterling K. Brown, Darren Criss and others to perform 'In the Cosmos'

August 22, 2017


WordTheatre founder Cedering Fox traveled to Wyoming with her father and 19-year-old daughter to experience the total eclipse of the sun, a phenomenal display of astronomical majesty that occurred the same week that Fox will stage her biggest show yet, “In the Cosmos: Where we Come From, Where We Are, and Where We Are Going” at the Ford Amphitheater on Saturday.

Fourteen actors including Sterling K. Brown (“This Is Us”), Darren Criss (“Glee”), Lesley Nicol (“Downton Abbey”) and Stephen Tobolowsky (“Silicon Valley”) will read the writing of great thinkers, philosophers, poets, explorers and scientists, including Carl Sagan, Maya Angelou, Aristotle, Isaac Newton, Jacques Cousteau and Sally Ride. The spoken word will be accompanied by orchestration by prominent film-composer Jonathan Sacks and musical performances by Inna Faliks, Wayne Bergeron, Page Hamilton and others.

[. . . ]

“This is a literary, musical, philosophical, scientific exploration,” Fox said of the project, which came to be after months of research. Fox and her assistants checked out more than 100 books from libraries in New York and L.A. and ended up with more than 1,000 pages of research that Fox crafted into a script that runs almost two hours, including intermission.

The script reads like a mash-up of creation myths, poetic descriptions of all things star dust-related and penetrating thoughts about the mystery of the universe and our place in it.

“The moral is that human beings all have so much more in common than what is different,” said Fox, who founded WordTheatre in 2003 and is also an accomplished voice-over actor. “It is such a privilege to be alive on this planet. We have to take care of it, and we have to take care of each other.”

The actors working with WordTheatre tend to be big believers in Fox’s message of love and unity, which is why they donate their time to her when she calls.

[. . . ]

Of her latest project, Tobolowsky wrote: “From ancient myth, to modern poetry, to the gentle wisdom of Albert Einstein, shaken and stirred by the humor of Douglas Adams, and wrapped in the beauty of the music of Bach and Ravel, ‘In the Cosmos’ aims to touch the heart and mind and leave the viewer with the same gift Carl Sagan brought to us: the joy of wonder.”
