I apologize for the lack of updates in the past times but the award season was an awesome nightmare for me with my other sites and it was hard to keep up with them all, so I missed to update with new stills but here I am now.
Mamma Mia! actress Christine Baranski has spoken of her passion for the work of Stephen Sondheim and the thrill of performing in his show Follies in London.
Baranski is among a star-studded cast, joined by Jennifer Coolidge and Stefanie Powers, for two performances of the story of a reunion of musical revue performers, directed by Craig Revel Horwood at the Royal Albert Hall on April 28.
Baranski, who was recently reunited with Streep in the film version of Sondheim’s Into The Woods, said it was “a dream come true” to perform in London. “It is quite simply my favourite city — I have filmed there twice, but never performed. It will be thrilling to hear Follies played in the Royal Albert Hall. I was there to hear the War Requiem by Benjamin Britten. It was one of the most moving concert experiences.”
However, she admitted performing Sondheim’s work filled her with “terror and humility” because he was “a living genius”. She said: “One tries to measure up to the intelligence, the wit and complexity of his lyrics and music.”
Sondheim, who is 85 this year, is being feted with a string of productions, including Sweeney Todd in a recreated pie shop and a blockbuster version with Bryn Terfel and Emma Thompson at English National Opera.

The Good Wife casts Julianna Margulies, Matt Czuchry and Christine Baranski are set to join a discussion at PaleyFest to share to their beloved viewers some behind-the-scenes exclusives of the show on March 7 in Los Angeles.
In a report from TV news front-liner Carter Matt, The Good Wife stars will discuss about the roles and the stories behind what is happening on the boob tube. Along with Margulies, Czuchry and Baranski, the hit TV show’s executive producers Robert and Michelle King will also be part of the Paley Center for Media-organized event happening in Dolby Theater in Hollywood from March 6 to 15.
The same report also stated that “it is very possible a few more actors may sign on before then, as this lineup is very much subject to change.”
Different issues coming up on the season’s comeback episodes after a long winter hiatus might be a good subject discussion in the panel. This might include the State’s Attorney plot, the condition of Alicia Frollick’s (Juliana Marguiles) firm and the conditions and development regarding Kalinda Sharma’s (Archie Punjabi) expected exit.
Panjabi is not in the panel list as of now whose exit from the Emmy winner show may be one of the most-asked questions for the show’s PaleyFest slot. Nevertheless, no reports have confirmed Panjabi’s attendance yet.
The Paley Center for Media has just released the list of talents who are set to join PaleyFest.
