  While I usually cringe at the thought of a Broadway adaptation of a favorite movie-- I'm still recovering from "Bring it On: the Musical"--  I'm surprisingly excited to hear that 1980s cult-classic "Heathers" is receiving the razzle dazzle treatment with it's very own musical.   While the show already premiered in Los Angeles, those of us on the east side can hope to catch it when it premieres at Off-Broadway's New World Stages, with previews starting on March 17 and its grand opening night March 31.

A worldwide movement to end street harassment through crowd-sourcing called 'Hollaback!' has launched a petition on Change.org, demanding that Rush Limbaugh apologize for the ridiculously insensitive statements he made on his show last night concerning street harassment: "The first way to deal with this that came into my mind, is you find yourself staring, looking at, casually glancing at a woman, but you know that it's now socially taboo.
