Bravo! London’s Donmar Warehouse and its’ all-star cast nabbed Best Musical Revival and Best Lighting Design at the Olivier Awards last night at the Royal Opera House. Director Josie Rourke and company set the new bar with their stylish production of Larry Gelbart, Cy Coleman, and David Zippel‘s film noir-inspired musical, City of Angels.
Tune in April 5 & 6 for HBO‘s two-part premiere of Sinatra: All Or Nothing At All 8PM EST. Based on a 1971 concert at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles, filmmaker Alex Gibney (known for his in-depth documentaries of James Brown, Fela Kuti as well as Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief) charts the singer’s legendary determination to stay on top. The film takes each of the 11 songs Sinatra sang that night as the basis for a chapter in his complicated life. Not to be missed!

With all eyes on ground zero of the green rush, The Denver Post became the first major media outlet to embrace it and appointed the world’s first marijuana editor. Legalization is not just an experiment for society, but a risk for the dying industry of newspapers to hedge its bets on the booming business of marijuana. Ricardo Baca sets out to report on history in the making with a team of straight-laced staff writers and fish out of water freelancers in tow for The Cannabist as it unfolds.
