Watch The Series Premiere of Cameron Crowe’s New Live Music Centered Show ‘Roadies’

first_imgRoadies, a new Showtime comedy following the road crew of a fictional major touring band, is set to officially premiere on Showtime on Sunday, June 26th. The series, created by music industry veteran Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous), puts the hard-working individual members of the often-overlooked crew in the spotlight by providing an insider’s look at the lives of some roadies for the Staton-House Band. Although they don’t have the prolific lives and public scandals of the rockers who take the stage each night, there is still enough recklessness and romance to go around with the road crew. The roadies persevere through the issues they face in their personal lives to make sure the show goes on as planned every night.Ahead of the official Showtime release on Sunday, the network has allowed fans on YouTube and the Showtime app to watch the series premiere early. Check out the full episode below:The show’s premiere episode is sure to pique the interest of any music fan. The dialogue is well-written and clever, and the characters are strange and lovable–like the conspiracy-nut bass tech from New Jersey who speaks in a fake British accent, the wise, road-worn tour bus driver who spouts advice like “It’s my opinion that in like you need two things to survive: oxygen and family. Everything else is dessert” (played with emotion by Luis Guzman), the grizzled felon head roadie (the hilarious Ron White) who shouts things like “when you look at me, you’re lookin’ at Rock n’ Roll in America!”, the spike-clad rocker kid who just got fired from Pearl Jam‘s crew but still would “take a bullet for McCready, ‘cus those are my guys!”, the crazy stalker groupie (“You live for what you live for. I live for this band.”), and many more. It’s a show about quite literally living for live music, and the ways people devote themselves to the music in order to feel close to it.Needless to say, we’ll be setting our DVRs for this one. Check out new episodes every Sunday night on Showtime.last_img read more

Comedy writer shares faith journey

first_imgWriter, producer and story editor Tom Leopold served up his reflections on faith with a side of comedy during his one-man show, “A Comedy Writer Finds God,” on Thursday night at Saint Mary’s. Leopold, who has worked with shows like “Will and Grace,” “Cheers,” “Seinfeld” and “The Chevy Chase Show,” converted from Judaism to Catholicism a few years ago. At the beginning of the show, Leopold explained the title of his program. “God was fine, He wasn’t lost,” he said. “I may have been a little bit, but He was fine.” The performance included an array of jokes about his life growing up but also some commentary on how he got to where he is today. The show told the story about his personal journey to faith and finding his place in the world with God by his side. “That’s the great thing about having faith and religion – feeling like you belong,” he said. Leopold grew up in a Jewish family in Miami but never really gave much thought to God as a child or even as an adult. He said when he got married and had his two daughters, he still had not truly considered why or how he had been so fortunate. “I knew [my family] was blessed,” he said. “I never stopped to think by who, I just knew that we were lucky.” Leopold said his religious experiences began to change a few years ago when his youngest daughter became deathly ill and had to be hospitalized.   After the family experienced a particularly difficult Christmas Eve away from her while she underwent treatment, he said he felt “so sad that I could break” and decided to pray to God for a sign. “I didn’t know how to do it, but I actually started to pray,” he said. “For the first time in my life, I was praying.” Through a series of events, conversations and experiences, Leopold said he seriously considered converting to Catholicism. He said he found himself at this new point in his life, and it was a welcome and necessary change. “Religion is a leap of faith,” he said. “After everything I had been through and that had happened to me, I was ready to leap.” Tonight’s performance concluded Leopold and comedian Bill Persky’s two-day visit to the College. Persky, a five-time Emmy award winning writer, director and producer, is best known for his work on “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” “Kate and Allie,” “That Girl,” “Who’s the Boss” and “The Cosby Show.” Persky introduced Leopold during Thursday’s performance, and he said the headliner was a man very dear to him. During the trip, the comedic pair met with students for meals, taught private master classes and gave workshops. The duo also worked closely with English, theatre and communication students for discussion panels. This was Persky’s second visit to Saint Mary’s in just six months and Leopold’s first visit to the College. Persky said he was very excited to be back at Saint Mary’s.  “It feels like coming back home,” he said. “We’ve spent a lot of time with the students here and they give you hope for the future. The young women at this school are so delightful.” Senior Rose Franzen was on of the students able to eat lunch with Leopold and Persky during their visit. She also attended the various workshops, master classes and Leopold’s one-man show. Franzen said she especially enjoyed Thursday evening’s performance for its inclusion of faith and God into the world of humor and laughter. “I thought [the performance] was really great,” she said. “I loved how he wove his comedy into his religious experience. Like he said – it’s not perfect, it’s him.”last_img read more

Peter Pan Live! Flies High with Overnight Ratings

first_img In addition to Williams and Walken, the broadcast starred Tony winner Christian Borle as Mr. Darling and Smee, Tony nominee Kelli O’Hara as Mrs. Darling and Taylor Louderman as Wendy. A Great White Way family classic, Peter Pan premiered in 1954 at the Winter Garden Theatre, featuring a book by J.M. Barrie, music by Mark “Moose” Charlap and Jule Style, lyrics by Carolyn Leigh, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, direction and choreography by Jerome Robbins and Mary Martin in the lead role of the Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up. NBC has broadcast the musical live a total of three times previously: in 1955 (when it reached 65 million viewers), 1956 and 1960. People really like crowing (but not as much as yodeling). NBC’s December 4 telecast of Peter Pan Live!, starring Allison Williams as the title Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up and Christopher Walken as Captain Hook, delivered high-flying numbers. According to TheWrap, the three-hour program pulled in a total of 9.1 million viewers. While CBS topped NBC in total viewers on Thursday, the Peacock Network was first in ratings, drawing a 2.3 in the coveted 18-49 demographic. The telecast marked the second-biggest non-sports Thursday for the network (beat by—you guessed it—The Sound of Music.) While the Pan numbers mean good news for the network, last year’s The Sound of Music Live has it beat by double, having drawn a massive 18.5 million viewers overall on December 5, 2013. “We didn’t expect to reach the same rating as The Sound of Music,” said NBC honcho Robert Greenblatt in a statement, “since that was the first live movie event of its kind in over 50 years.” The lower (though still impressive) numbers aren’t stopping the network from bringing live musicals to the small screen: plans have already been announced for its next live musical event: The Music Man.

What Is Next?

first_imgI am sure you have heard about some of the things coming out of the New York Mets starting pitchers.  If you haven’t, here are a couple examples.  Terry Collins allowed his starting pitchers to decide the uniform, style, and color on the days they were pitching.  In fact, they kept stats on the records achieved for every game uniform style worn both at home and away.  I think you might call this wanting to take superstition to a new level.In fact, Matt Harvey and his agent (plus his doctor) wanted to dictate to the Mets how may pitches he would throw during the season.  In fact, the agent set up press conferences putting out these demands.  In the end, Harvey had enough sense to follow his managers wants and not what his agent wanted.What can we expect next from pro athletes?  Their own uniform–different from the rest of the team?  Who knows?last_img read more
