theater Staying on the Lincoln Center campus… The two greatest musicals from their golden age are, in our view, Guys and Dolls and My Fair Lady. A new production of the Lerner and Loewe classic begins at the Beaumont on March 15, directed by Bartlett Sher, starring Lauren Ambrose and Harry Hadden-Paton, with Diana Rigg as Mrs. Higgins. Last but not least, Norbert Leo Butz will play Alfred Doolittle, the thought of which (and how he'll run with Get Me to the Church on Time), makes us very happy.

movie Even if it's an odd and uneven sci-fi/thriller/satire, Before We Vanish is worth a look because it's directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa.
