The Phantom of Hollywood

Andrew Lloyd Webber spectacle < made-for-TV treatment.


Rod Lott
So simple is the story of Gaston Leroux's 1911 novel, "The Phantom of the Opera," that it continues to be remade on stage and screen. More interesting, however, are not its adaptations, but those that tweak the setting to more contemporary, even oddball venues.

Killer Party

I'm dying to RSVP again.


Rod Lott
Immediately, I understood why 1986's "Killer Party" enjoys such a cult following: The unconventional slasher opens with a stereotypical flaming priest quoting "The Wizard of Oz" as he presides over a funeral. It's all a goof — part of a movie-within-a-movie-within-a-movie joke.

Gone to the dogs

Are you off to see ‘The Wizard’?

This weekend, there really will be no place like home. Enjoy Oklahoma City Ballet’s 40th anniversary encore performances of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker.

The show debuted during the troupe’s 2008-2009 season, featuring an original score by Kermit Poling. Performances will be 8 p.m. tonight and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday.

This show, typical of the immaculate artistic direction of Robert Mills, will feature flying effects and a three-dimensional tornado.

And, of course, the production wouldn't be complete without a Toto:
