Parsippany Playhouse is alive through June 2 with the sounds of Rodgers and Hammerstein.
Parsippany's Women’s Theater Company presents the final show of its 20th season, the Rodgers and Hammerstein revue “A Grand Night for Singing.” Performances run on the weekends now through June 2. The production, what the company calls a celebration of "timeless masterpieces from the music of Richard Rodgers and lyrics of Oscar Hammerstein II," is produced by Barbara Krajkowski with musical direction from Warren Helms and staging by Lauren Moran Mills. The two act musical revue was conceived by Broadway legend Walter Bobbie, who compiled 34 Broadway gems from the R&H canon. It includes fresh takes on songs from popular and historic musicals such as "Oklahoma!", "The Sound of Music," "The King and I," "South Pacific," and even the recent …

Offerings include the long-awaited Baz Luhrmann treatment of the classic "The Great Gatsby," starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan as Jay and Daisy.
Looking for something to do this weekend? A huge film opens this week, as Aussie director Baz Luhrmann ("Romeo + Juliet," "Moulin Rouge") brings his version of the F. Scott Fitzgerald heavyweight "The Great Gatsby" to the big screen, fueled by a Jay-Z curated score. (We get the idea of a mainstream, hip-hop soundtrack; do check out the remake of Mrs. Carter's "Crazy in Love." The reason for a 3D version escapes us, though; if you see that one, please tell us if the effect adds anything to the roaring '20s tale of excess and crushed dreams.) Also bowing this week: "Tyler Perry's Peeples," starring television's Olivia Pope, Kerry Washington. And "Iron Man 3," last week's box-office champ, returns, making ticket-sales prognostication most …

'A Grand Night for Singing' is theater company's next offering.
It's been quite a ride for Parsippany's Women's Theater Company. For 20 years, the thespian group housed within the Parsippany Community Center's Parsippany Playhouse has kept live theater alive in the township. Just in the last year, the WTC has delighted audiences with plays such as "Southern Comforts" and the recent "A Person of Interest" and musical shows like "Carol Channeling." The next Parsippany Playhouse presentation will in fact be a musical revue: "A Grand Night for Singing" features the classic songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein. Thinking of the company's milestone, we thought this was the perfect time to shine the Parsippany Spotlight on a township treasure. WTC Executive Director (and producer of "A Grand Night for Singing…

Offerings include the Mark Wahlberg-The Rock flick "Pain and Gain" and the ensemble rom-com "The Big Wedding."
Looking for something to do this weekend? As the weather gets warmer, expect the films to get funnier and more, um, explosive. (Yeah, we're waiting for the next Iron Man and Wolverine sequels—action, claws and stuff blowing up—and a new one in the "Hangover" comedy franchise that isn't about a forgotten bender.) At the local movie houses, it certainly looks like spring: The beautiful baseball biopic "42" continues (bring a hankie; you've been warned), as does Tom Cruise's sci-fi action flick "Oblivion." And new this week, there are "Pain and Gain" (which sounds like action and big, bulging muscular guys are involved) and Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, Robert DeNiro, Katherine Heigl and Topher Grace in "The Big Wedding" (what's spring …

The weekend is nigh, and it's time to plan the next couple days' activities. Get your chores done and be sure to take time for fitness and outdoor fun.

Consider catching a film at the Parsippany Clearview Cinemas 12 this weekend. There's something for everyone: the baseball biopic "42," about the legendary Jackie Robinson; the 3D version of the classic "Jurassic Park"; Ryan Gosling as a good dad with bad ideas in "The Place Beyond the Pines"; even Tom Cruise's latest. Here's what's showing this week, along with showtimes. (Use the Moviefone widget to check out showings in …
