TERRY’S PICKS: FUN HOME, MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL & SPY LANDS AT THE TOP

Bravo! The Broadway production Fun Home made feminist history this week when Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron became the first all-female writing team to win Best Original Score.

Oh, please:  37-year old Maggie Gyllenhaal was turned down for a movie because she’s “too old” to play the love interest of a 55-year-old man. “It made me feel bad, and then it made me feel angry, and then it made me laugh,” she said. At least she can laugh…

Women ARE funny! We already knew that, but Melissa McCarthy continued to help prove the point when her film Spy opened at #1 this weekend.
