I knew I was in good hands in McDonald’s No. 2 because it had a big menu screen touting the “limited time collab” Travis Scott Meal, informing me that, because this is New York, it will be $7 instead of $6 and that it’s 1,240 calories total, which was fine by me because I ate Boursin cheese with my hands for breakfast this morning and I’m really past the point of caring. When my order was ready, it said “TRAVIS SCOTT” on the receipt, and it transported me to a fantasy life where I was Stormi’s au pair and I was just picking up an order for Travis on an errand. … [Read more...] about What’s All the Hype About the ‘Travis Scott Meal’ at McDonald’s?

LaBelle’s 70th birthday was just last month. She celebrated by having Baltimore crabs driven to her Philadelphia home. She’s diabetic, and has been menopausal for 20 years but barely notices anymore. “I was flashing onstage today, but I had to keep on keepin’ on.” Harris, who’s been doing LaBelle’s hair since they met when Harris was 18 and an employee at the defunct New York department store Bonwit Teller, is menopausal too, and today’s her 66th birthday. “We’re taking her to a club with poles. She wants to pole-dance,” says LaBelle. “I’m gonna spin around 66 times!” says Harris. “Sixty-six times at a pole hoochie club!” says LaBelle. “Nah, she’s gonna go home and sleep.” … [Read more...] about Patti LaBelle on Performing in

Leaps and Bounds. Director John Moore’s failure to devise a single memorable set piece is one of A Good Day’s primary failings. Still, just as egregious is that he repeats the same trick twice: having McClane and son leap out of tall buildings to inconsequential injuries. Of the two, it’s the second one that truly reeks of ridiculousness, with McClane, while in midair to avoid a kamikaze pilot’s fatal nosedive, giving the middle finger to his enemy — and, by extension, to any scant remaining relationship this silly series had to quality. … [Read more...] about The Downward Spiral of
In order to protect her voice, Lauren Ambrose is ducking out of the Sunday matinee performances of My Fair Lady. She has young kids and is playing Eliza Doolittle, a role that nearly destroyed Julie Andrews, so this seems fairly reasonable, though certainly a disappointment to anyone who bought tickets to see her Tony-nominated performance. It is also a major disappointment to Dame Diana Rigg, who plays Henry Higgins’s mother, and who decided to air her grievances about it all. In an email — and we shudder at the thought of anyone getting an email from Diana Rigg — obtained by the Post, Rigg wrote, “I learnt, courtesy of a newspaper, that our leading lady will not be appearing in future Sunday matinees. It is time managements put their audiences first and insist on the old adage, slightly adapted by me, ‘The show must go on — with ALL principals.’” (Impeccable em-dash use from the dame.) … [Read more...] about Diana Rigg Concerned Lauren Ambrose Is Not Willing to Destroy Her Voice for
