'This Ain't No Disco': Theater Review

The characters ingest plenty of drugs onstage, but you won't get much of a contact high from the new musical set in the glory days of such New York City nightclub landmarks as Studio 54 and Mudd Club.

Tony Bennett Celebrates 90: The Best Is Yet To Come

Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder & More Pay Tribute to Tony Bennett for 90th Birthday Celebration TV Special

Most people are barely able to blow out the candles on their cake when they turn 90, but that’s hardly the case with Tony Bennett, whose landmark birthday was celebrated in an all-star concert taped Sept. 15 at Radio City Music Hall. In this celebratory evening of music, the nonagenarian singer -- whose career is still going strong -- demonstrated his formidable lung power with a trademark rendition of “Fly Me to the Moon,” performed sans amplification. Considering the vastness of the venue, that’s no small feat. The show, called Tony Bennett Celebrates 90: The Best Is Yet to Come, airs Dec. 20 on NBC.

Starring Samberg as the former member of a hip-hop boy band whose life and career begin to fall apart just as he embarks on a much-hyped solo tour, the funnily-titled Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping should have its obvious true-life inspirations wincing. Justin Bieber, I'm talking about you, among many others.
