We recently found ourselves with time to kill post a non-formal arrivals line downtown. The day coincided with Helen Mirren’s opening night in the Broadway staging of “The Audience.”
We are HUGE fans of the diva, so we thought to give a stroll by the press event at the Schoenfeld Theater. We arrived to find a barricade pen with only a handful of photographers and thought it a small turn out. The pen wasn’t locked off so we thought rather than shoot in the street we’d contain ourselves with the handful of other photogs.
The PR however didn’t see it our way and had us formally removed from the line. Ain’t that some shit? But not before we came to learn that there would be no Carey Mulligan on the step-and-repeat.
“She cancelled,” sneered one photog. Bummer. She was the highlight of the tip sheet really….

Cantankerous star and former-lead of the Michael Bay Transformers’ franchise Shia LaBeouf has gone and done what thousands before him could never achieve while at the infamous space known as Studio 54: behave so badly that he ended up arrested and spending a night at 1 Police Plz.
Without question this is certainly a first for the space the housed a rumored basement – and balcony – where an anything goes practice was standard.
