Let me say that I think Newtron formed a perfect 90 degree angle, and everyone else skewed it. So there, go and cramp his style then.

Not John Cameron Mitchell news, at least directly, but...

I saw the stage version of 'Hedwig And The Angry Inch' this evening. It so amazing. Has anyone else seen it on stage? Or does anyone feel like talking about just how flat out brilliant the piece is, in either of its incarnations?

I saw it once during its original NYC run with Ally Sheedy as Hedwig (terrible- she was fired soon thereafter!).

Then I saw the movie and loved it.

Then I saw it again on stage in a Portland revival with a local actor named Wade McCollum. It was brilliant.

""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

I'm almost afraid to get that album (I hate it when I don't like covers), but I probably will anyway.

I just can't believe how well constructed the story is. I thought the movie was impeccable, narratively. But the stage play is so sparse and stripped down, and everything still comes across in full, and it's so emotionally involving. Part of this was certainly due to the cast -- a young actor named Joey Steakley played the part, but it might as well have been John Cameron Mitchell up there, he inhabited the character so pefectly and completely.

I completely lost it when Midnight Radio began. I usually tear up when I watch the movie, but seeing it done so well, and live...phew.

‘Trending Down’ Nears Pilot Green Light At Showtime With Philip Seymour Hoffman & Kathryn Hahn Starring
July 26, 2013
via Deadline

Showtime is expected to announce during their TCA session on Tuesday that Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman will star in and executive produce Trending Down, a comedy pilot, which is getting a green light after a long development process. Kathryn Hahn is expected to co-star in the pilot, which will be directed by John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and The Angry Inch). Developed by Ken Kwapis and created by This American Life contributor Shalom Auslander, Trending Down is a blistering attack on our youth-obsessed culture, and a darkly comic examination of what it means to matter. Or matter not. It centers on Thom Payne (Hoffman), a man facing his own obsolescence after his advertising agency is taken over. Hahn will play Thom’s wife. Hoffman, Kwapis, Auslander and Hoffman’s producing partner Emily Ziff will executive produce. Alexandra Beattie will co-executive produce. Trending Down marks the third pilot pickup at Showtime this year. It is the first comedy pilot, joining dramas The Vatican and The Affair. The network also gave straight-to-series order to Penny Dreadful earlier this year.

I saw JCM’s reprisal of Hedwig earlier this week. He’d injured his knee a show or two prior and did the whole thing in a leg brace with a glitterized crutch under one arm. Still blew me away even with those limitations. He was obviously in pain but the man is a serious professional. He’s taking a week-long leave of absence from the show, during which Michael C. Hall will takeover the role, but John Cameron Mitchell’s run has been extended through April.

From this interview with The Wall Street Journal on February 2, 2015

Quote
What’s next for you when you’re done?

The next film [I'm directing] is a Neil Gaiman adaptation of a punk-era story with punks versus aliens. Elle Fanning and James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem [are involved] and it’s called “How to Talk to Girls at Parties.”

Also read he's working on a (movie) sequel to Hedwig somewhere, but can't remember the source.

John Cameron Mitchell Says LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy May Work On His Sci-Fi Comedy ‘Girls At Parties'
via The Playlist

In the 15 plus years that filmmaker John Cameron Mitchell has been on the scene, he’s only made three feature-length films, but at least one of them, the queercore punk rock musical “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” has grown iconic enough to become a Broadway play (the movie started as an off-Broadway play 17 years ago). While 2010’s deeply underrated “Rabbit Hole” was underseen and underloved (though Nicole Kidman did earn an Oscar nomination for her performance), you can thank it for essentially launching Miles Tellers' career (he wouldn’t catch on for a few years, but casting directors took note).

Five years on, Cameron has another film finally in the works, a high concept sci-fi comedy called “How to Talk to Girls at Parties,” a long developing adaptation of Neil Gaiman's short story which will star Elle Fanning. Mitchell has been delayed in working on the picture for a while — it has animation and will be quite involved — but now that his Hedwig run concludes at the end of April, he’ll return his attention to the project.

In a recent EW interview, the filmmaker revealed he has a high profile musician in mind to score some of the movie’s music. “I’m sort of easing back into it. Working on some animation design. Some music. James Murphy is hopefully going to be working on it,” he said of the former LCD Soundsystem frontman and producer who’s been scoring Noah Baumbach films of late.

It sounds like they’ll be a variety of music in it and different kinds of sonic collaborators. “There are different kinds of music in it, punk and we created a new kind of extraterrestrial music, extraterrestrial dance music,” he said. “Also Nico Muhly [composer for “The Reader,” among others], who is a famous classical guy is going to be involved. It needs its own time. We are reaching out to a few actors now. Elle Fanning is already attached as the lead. Hopefully we’ll be shooting next fall in London. She’s the alien lead.”

While it is based on a Gaiman short story about an alien touring the galaxy who breaks away from her group and meets two young inhabitants a dangerous futuristic suburb of London, Mitchell also noted that he “expanded” the story beyond its mere 4,500 word count. “There’s a lot of original music,” he added. “There’s animation. It’s a period piece in 1977 London, the punk scene. But it’s a comedy on the surface, but quite touching as well. It’s almost a little bit like Romeo and Juliet, but it’s punks and aliens rather than Montagues and Capulets.” Super sold.
