“Ragtime” is back

In case you missed the Broadway musical “Ragtime” the first time around, be sure to catch it in the 2009-2010 season in NYC! Some of you may remember the movie adaption by the same name, which starred stage and screen performer Debbie Allen (“Fame”) and the late-Howard Rollins (“A Soldier’s Story”), or it’s 1998 revival starring the multi-talented diva Audra McDonald.

Everyone’s excited by a revival of this poignant and entertaining musical that covers three families, racial strife, political machinations, the rise of Eastern European immigration, and the clash of cultures between a burgeoning Black

urban population and the white industrialists who exploited their labor.

The casting call just went out this past summer, but the cast is already hard at work in rehearsals! Check out what’s to come and here’s a little reminder of the magic of the screen version.

The Losers gain Zoe

Step aside Uhura! Zoe Saldana is back with yet another sci-fi role that’s fit for the big screen. Aside from her role in the 3-D spectacle “Avatar” (due out in December 2009), Ms. Saldana will star as the character Aisha, alongside heart-throbs and alpha males Jeffrey Dean Morgan (“Watchmen”) and Idris Alba (“The Unborn,” “The Wire”). The name of her new film is named “The Losers,” and is Warner Bros.’s adaptation of the comic book series from Vertigo Comics –written by Andy Diggle and drawn by Jock.

Look for “The Losers,” coming out April 2010.
