As the Robin fans may know, one of Robin’s most popular movies is “The Craft” from 1996. Now, the movie is put into a brand new musical. Find out more here or read on.
THE CRAFT: The Musical is a brand new, non-profit musical project inspired by the 1996 cult film of the same name. The show tells the story of four teenage girls who dabble in witchcraft and try to use magic to fix all the problems in their lives. Unfortunately, their spells have serious and unforeseen consequences…
The show began development in 2012. A demo was recorded and released in May of that year. A partial reading took place in Illinois in May, and a more substantial workshop/reading lined up in NYC later this year.

“The Mentalist‘s” 100th episode has aired and the team that makes the popular Simon Baker drama has made it clear that this season, they’re going to get closer to solving the central mystery of Red John – the serial killer that took the lives of Simon’s character’s wife and child. Does all that indicate that Simon and series creator Bruno Heller are envisioning an ending for the series?
Not according to leading lady Robin Tunney.
“I think it’s a creative conversation,” she says, speaking of the show in general and the Red John storyline in particular. “I feel like they’ll go along as long as the audience wants to, as long as they keep it interesting and not too frustrating. Historically, with television, people will get on the bandwagon with something and then it’s very clear when they’ve given up,” she continues. “Everybody wanted to know who killed Laura Palmer in ‘Twin Peaks’ – but it went to a certain point and then everyone turned on (creator) David Lynch. I think there’s a certain point where you resolve something when the audience needs it.”
According to Robin, Heller and the other writer-producers “read everything that’s written about the show, I think. Bruno actually reads letters that people send in. I think they are genuinely curious. Both Bruno and Simon are really into what the fans think and sort of servicing them.”
“The Mentalist” hasn’t had an easy time on Sunday nights this fall. Moved from its longtime Thursday perch, Patrick Jane, Teresa Lisbon & Co. recently fell to series lows, not helped by CBS‘ ever-shifting time zones on Sundays due to the network’s sports coverage early in the evening. Last night, The Mentalist (10.6 million, 2.0) may have jumped 25 percent to beat ABC’s 666 Park Ave. (4.9 million, 1.5), though once again the morning numbers are a bit more approximate than usual thanks to sports overrun in a few markets. The latest 666 was down 12 percent.

“Misfire: The Rise and Fall of The Shooting Gallery” is a documentary about the independent film company responsible for such art-house hits as “Sling Blade” and “You Can Count On Me”; a company that rose to the top echelons of the independent film scene in the 90s before financial risk-taking and business mismanagement caused it to crash.
In 1991, a group of young filmmakers banded together to make films and created a company called The Shooting Gallery in lower Manhattan. It was a time when a “golden age of independent film” was just underway with the emergence of Miramax Films and the Sundance Film Festival.
The Shooting Gallery found great success producing over 20 feature films, including “Laws of Gravity” and Billy Bob Thornton’s Academy Award winning, “Sling Blade”. They also produced films including early work by stars Owen Wilson, Mark Ruffalo, Parker Posey, Elijah Wood, Courtney Love, Lawrence Fishburn and Robin Tunney.
They have financed their film on their own, and still need a lot of help. Now it’s up to you. Anyone who’s interested in helping, visit this site. By the way, Robin appears at 1:17.
You can find another interview of Robin during the ‘The Mentalist’ Press Preview in Tokyo, Japan last month. Unforunately it’s in Japanese, but I’ll try to find a translator to translate this one into English. You can find the interview here I also added 5 more pictures of the press preview to the gallery. I’m in love with the fourth one. Robin’s just amazing! Thanks to Red Blog for the heads up!
