It's virtually impossible to watch Smash star Katharine McPhee on screen and not be smitten. The American Idol alumna has a way to go before she masters the intricacies of acting, but it was thrilling to see her sing and dance - and above all be sweet, heartbroken, and sweetly heartbroken - on the first season of NBC's disarming, surprisingly enjoyable, if sometimes mediocre, musical drama, which returns for its sophomore year Tuesday night...

A sure sign it's finally spring? Those very pink-hued, (sometimes sickly) sweet musical ads for the Gap starring American darling Sarah Jessica Parker and her rendition of the Broadway tune "I Enjoy Being a Girl. " But the British press is reporting that S.J.P., who's done three Gap campaigns so far, will do no more. It appears that Gap's face and voice are to be replaced by English teen sensation Joss Stone, who's currently in negotiations with the khaki-maker. According to London's Sunday Times, the Gap, which had previously used Madonna and Demi Moore, wants to capture the teen market by using the 17-year-old soul singer, who scored a hit last year with "Fell in Love with a Boy," a reworking of the White Stripes' "Fell in Love with a Girl.

And now, Broadway, coming to a movie theater near you. Wait a minute. Broadway - in a movie theater? Isn't one of the main properties of live theater that it's not a movie? Well, these days, yes and no. This weekend through Tuesday, Broadway's current Tony-winning best musical - Memphis - is playing in about 530 cinemas throughout America, including 10 screens here, and it's not some Hollywood version.

Those who think that there are no female war movies obviously have never seen Stage Door (1937), in which aspiring actresses plot their Broadway campaigns. Adapted from the Edna Ferber-George S. Kaufman play, Gregory La Cava's boardinghouse comedy stars Ginger Rogers and Katharine Hepburn, who are tartly supported by the wisecracking Lucille Ball, Eve Arden and Ann Miller. Those who think that Hepburn would naturally rise to command this Broadway battle obviously have never seen Rogers give orders.
