The Hollywood icon’s death was ruled an accident, but many believe she was murdered by her husband. Thirty-seven years after the sudden and mysterious drowning of Natalie Wood, her case has been reopened and her death ruled “suspicious.”
Netflix’s hit show, The Crown, is well-known for its historical accuracy, and for bringing the crazy drama of Britain’s royal family to a new generation of Netflix watchers. But while we’ve seen some crazy drama in the first two seasons—affairs, deaths, Nazis and sex scandals—there are some royal famous controversies and tragedies that are bound to make the upcoming seasons more dramatic than ever. Oh, and obviously: spoilers!
There is no doubt that the word "icon" applies to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. She's without question one of the most famous women in history, and remembered for many things, including her bouffant hair, stylish wardrobe, breathy voice, and the legendary bloodstained pink suit.
No matter where you live, the words "the Queen" almost certainly conjure up one world-famous monarch: Queen Elizabeth II, of the UK (and Canada, and Australia, and so on). In addition to being the longest-reigning and oldest living British monarch, she is also the grandmother of the ever-popular young Royal generation, Princes William and Harry (whose recent engagement to Suits actress Meghan Markle recently took the world by storm). But the 91-year-old Queen Elizabeth, or Lilibet, as her family calls her, is not all tea and crumpets and "my-husband-and-I"s.
The 2018 revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel is, for many theatre fans, a dreamy idea. With a cast of Broadway favorites – Jessie Mueller, Joshua Henry, Betsy Wolfe, and opera legend Renée Fleming – and a stunning score by Rodgers and Hammerstein, the production is sure to be a strong contender for the Best Revival Tony Award (and maybe add a second Tony statue to Jessie Mueller’s personal shelf as well). But the show itself, about an unlikely couple who both lose their jobs as a result of their relationship, relies on some pretty outdated ideas of marriage and loyalty; some might even call it an “ode to domestic violence.”
