A lot of people are about to learn one of Broadway’s biggest secrets – which is that Cats is one of the weirdest musicals ever made. Most of the audiences for the stage show have simply expected to see actors jumping around in dopey costumes while singing about being a cat. Instead, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s… Continue reading Cats

Hobbs & Shaw

Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) in "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw," directed by David Leitch.
