Washington’s National Theatre announced its upcoming season Tuesday morning, confirming the Broadway tryout of Mean Girls, adapted from the 2004 Paramount film by scripter Tina Fey, with a score by Emmy-winning composer Jeff Richmond (Fey’s husband) and lyricist Neil Benjamin. Aladdin‘s Casey Nicholaw again does double duty as director/choreographer. The musical is being produced by Lorne Michaels (his first time on Broadway with a big show; he previously backed gigs by Gilda Radner and Colin Quinn) with Main Stem veteran Stuart Thompson. A search is on for the lead played in the film by Lindsay Lohan, with a developmental workshop slated for next month in New York that only Russian intelligence will have access to.
And here’s an interesting tidbit from the announcement: Part of the draw for subscribers is the offer of tickets to Hamilton, which is slated to run at the neighboring Kennedy Center in 2018 from June through September. National Theatre season packages start at $210. Adding in Hamilton to the package will bump the cost to $425. Translation: Base price of tickets for the Hamilton national tour will run you $210 – about $10 more than the (all-but-unobtainable) non-premium top price on Broadway.
Tim laughed at your remark. “What did you expect? It’s
a blizzard (Y/N).”
You rolled your eyes playfully as you sipped your hot
It had started snowing early that morning and hadn’t
let up since. Your boyfriend had insisted on coming over to ensure that you
were set in case the weather took a turn for the worse. What he hadn’t planned
on was it to get this bad this fast. Now, you were both trapped in your
apartment. You were just thankful that your roommate had gone home for
Christmas so you wouldn’t have to explain why Tim was staying over. You were
sure that she would understand, but you were also certain that she would watch
the two of you like a hawk.
A pair of muscular arms wrapping themselves around
your waist drew you from your thoughts. You leaned against Tim’s well-toned
chest and smiled up at him. He returned your smile before placing a kiss on
your forehead. You giggled at the sensation of his lips on your skin. Tim wasn’t overly affectionate in public so you enjoyed seeing his softer side when
you two were alone. He was quite the romantic when given the chance.
“So…” Tim trailed off with a sly smile on his face. He
nuzzled his nose into your (H/C) hair. “What shall we do to pass the time?”
You placed your mug down on the counter in front of
you. “Well, I am getting a bit cold. What do you say to a movie and cuddling?”
“Sounds perfect to me.”
Ten minutes later, you were settled on your couch with
Tim laying behind you. He arms were once more wrapped around your waist. Your
back was flush against his chest and your legs were entangled with his. A bowl
of popcorn was set on the coffee table along with your newly refilled mug of
hot chocolate and Tim’s mug of coffee with extra coffee. You idly scrolled
through Netflix looking for a movie to watch. You and Tim had similar tastes in
movies so it wasn’t too difficult to decide on what to watch most of the time.
The dark-haired man behind you placed his chin in the nook between your neck
and shoulder as he also scanned the titles on the screen.
“What about Mean
Girls? It’s a chick flick classic.”
Your boyfriend made a face. “A chick flick? I mean, if
that’s what you want to watch…”
You beamed as you clicked play on the movie. The
familiar opening scene of Mean Girls
appeared on your TV screen. You snuggled closer to Tim and relished in the heat his body gave off. It was no secret you hated the cold so any excuse you had to
snuggle with the vigilante you took full advantage of. Tim chuckled at your behavior.
He placed a soft kiss on your neck. A shiver ran down your back at his actions.
You squirmed slightly in response. Tim’s chest rumbled when he chuckled again.
“What’s the matter?” His whispered in your ear. His
voice was low and husky making you shiver again. “You like when I kiss you
Your face flushed red in embarrassment. “D-Don’t tease
me! And don’t distract me! We’re supposed to be watching the movie!”
“I know something else we could do instead…”
Squeaking in surprise, you set yourself up on your
elbows to stare at the man in shock. His teasing smile elicited a soft curse
from you. Your face contorted into a scowl. Seething, you laid back down with
your arms crossed over your chest pouting. Tim once more chuckled and placed
another kiss on your exposed neck.
It is late at night and I just realize, Eliza Taylor can be a great and wonderful Supergirl 😻 i mean i really want to see Kara Zor-El in the DCCU, I know this is probably not possible but i still have a little hope !
That one there, that’s Bruce Wayne. He is one of the dumbest boys you will ever meet. Wonder Woman sat next to him in english last year. He asked her how to spell orange.
That little one, that’s Lex Luthor. He’s totally rich because his dad invented Lexcorp. Lex knows everybody’s business, he knows everything about everyone. That’s why his hair is so big, it’s full of secrets.
And evil takes human form in Clark Kent. Don’t be fooled because he may seem like your typical selfish, backstabbing slut faced ho-bag, but in reality he’s so much more than that. He’s the queen bee - the star. Those other two are just his little workers.
I haven't read Injustice Ground Zero (I've definitely fallen out of love with DC, especially HQ stuff) and I was wondering why you tagged the Joker and Harley escape picture with "boo whore" and "things got ugly after this". ...But will the answer break my heart?
Oh the boo you whore was a reference to Mean Girls but boo you whore to DC too yeah. Things got ugly after that snippet because it’s back to the abusive side for Harley and Joker. Harley gives her fair share of kicking around and Joker is trying to get her back on his side to cause mayhem but due to her turning nasty he, of course is nasty back. So it’s a sad time and a disappointing comic.
Comparison time bc why not. I don’t think I ever realized how dark Ivy-Barbie’s look was, I love it, tho her hair especially looks dull next to the vibrancy of new-Ivy.
Honestly kinda finding myself liking DC SHG a bit more, nostalgia can only make me ignore flaws so much. My older Ivy is great, but her hair likes to fall out (I’m very worried she’s gonna go bald one day…tho if it does I’m rerooting her with new-Ivy’s color), and if I move her at all her chest does not stay in her suit. Not to mention she was originally on a bend-n-flex bod.
If nothing else I appreciate how far quality’s come. Maybe with some luck Mattel will take another stab at classic Ivy when Gotham City Sirens comes out. (I mean hey, they made dolls for BatmanVSuperman…)
