EW EVENT, PHOTOS, REMIXES + ‘ROMANTIC POETRY’ NEWS

I was going to wait until the weekend to do my big update, but seeing as I had an hour to kill, I thought I’d jump ahead.

As many of you may already know, Idina will be appearing in a limited run of Romantic Poetry: The Musicale at Vassar College’s Martel Theatre in Poughkeepsie, NY from July 19 to July 29, 2007 (following the benefit performance of the show next week.) Vassar’s Official Site includes the following description of the show:

John Patrick Shanley, writer and director of Doubt, and Dreamgirls composer Henry Krieger bring you a mad musical New York champagne evening of six inter-related plays in two acts, the subject of which is the lyrical expression of amour.

I’ve received some info regarding Idina’s role(s) in the show — She will appear in 2 of the 6 plays mentioned, portraying Lilly in one, and Connie in the other. Tickets can be purchased here.

In other extremely belated news, Warner Brothers Records has released 2 new dance re-mix records, featuring various versions of the “Defying Gravity” single on iTunes. Both CDs consist of 5 tracks – the Defying Gravity EP (the yellow cover), contains shortened mixes of the extended dance tracks that are on the Defying Gravity (DJ Version) EP (the red cover.) The CDs cost $4.95/ea. to purchase. smile


Last of the news: For those of you interested, Jennifer Houlton, director of the independent film Water featuring Idina, has uploaded another short clip from the film to video site, YouTube. To view the video, click here.

Last night, Idina and Taye attended the Entertainment Weekly Upfront Party in New York, and I’ve managed to gather a few photos from the arrivals. Included is 1 HQ image (for now) and 8 MQ images. To view the album, click here or on the thumbnails below.

As promised, I’ve also added a small handful of HQ images from the Poiret Costume Institute Gala last week (9 to be exact.) I have a few more smaller images to add, but I thought I’d get these up for you right away so you wouldn’t have to wait any longer. To view the album, click here or on the thumbnails below.


I’ll try to update more this weekend when everything settles down with my schedule. Thanks to everyone for the well-wishes on my finals & apartment moving! I appreciate it so much and everything is going smoothly. wassat
