    Katherine Heigl has never been one to push the boundaries of her acting. Ever since "Knocked Up" -- her first major big screen stint outside of her starmaking turn on "Grey's Anatomy" -- she has excelled at playing well-dressed, but frosty bitches in one film after another with a mostly successful score card. Not counting "Knocked Up," which was sold on the Apatow brand, Heigl had a major high with the $200 million worldwide "The Ugly Truth," and even supposed "failures" like "Killers" or "Life As We Know It" wound up making around $100 million each worldwide anyway. So clearly, there are people who love to see Heigl do her thing. But will th...

    A common lament in the New York theater world is that the business has become increasing Hollywood-ized.

    Simply the Worst: Disney's "Song of the South"

    Whether or not you’ve seen the 1946 Disney film Song of the South—and if you have, you probably haven’t seen it since at least 1986, the last time it was released to theaters—you’ve almost certainly been touched by it through some form of cultural osmosis. Perhaps, while at Disneyland, Disney World, or Tokyo Disneyland, you rode Splash Mountain, populated by the movie’s animated characters, Br’er Rabbit, Br’er Fox, and Br’er Bear. Maybe you’ve seen a clip of James Baskett performing the movie’s Oscar-winning song “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah.” Or if Baskett’s version is unfamiliar to you, you might have heard the Muppet bunnies sing it, or Paula Abdul,...
