Call it a revival of a revival of a classic musical. Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall will team up again to bring back their popular 1998 Roundabout Theatre Company production of "Cabaret" for an opening next year set for April 24 at Studio 54 in New York. Alan Cumming, who played the Master of Ceremonies in the 1998 production, will return alongside Michelle Williams as Sally Bowles. (The late Natasha Richardson played Bowles in the 1998 version.) The 24-week engagement is scheduled to begin preview performances on March 21. The full cast will be announced at a later date.

Jay-Z has turned the second song of his new album “Magna Carta Holy Grail" into a new art form. The musical mogul Wednesday repeatedly rapped “Picasso Baby" during a six-hour performance piece at the Pace Gallery in New York. In what will likely become a music video, Jay-Z was surrounded by an entourage of cameras, curators, celebrities and Picasso's own granddaughter. “I'm the modern day Pablo / Picasso, baby,” the rapper repeated to a demur Diana Widmaier Picasso.

It is entirely possible that a movie more unpleasant than "Plunkett & Macleane" will open in the roughly three months prior to the year 2000, but you wouldn't want to put money on it. Working Title Films, the generally sane British production company behind "My Beautiful Laundrette," "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and "Dead Man Walking," has obviously banked a lot of sterling on this dark, noisy and nasty tale of debauchery in 18th century England.

Poor Marilyn Monroe. She's barely survived with her dignity intact from some made-for-TV bilge about the Kennedy wives, and she's back for an encore caricature in less than a week's time. Icons never get a day off. There are a number of '60s icons that pop up in "Company Man," including the omnipresent John F. Kennedy, Fidel Castro and, most happily, Woody Allen.

Animation continues to be television's most promising venue for cutting-edge comedy. More evidence comes in NBC's funny "God, the Devil and Bob," which finds a Detroit auto worker at the center of a tug of war between the Almighty and the Prince of Darkness. He's family man Bob Alman (voiced by French Stewart of NBC's "3rd Rock From the Sun"), whose wife (voiced by Laurie Metcalf) is out of the loop regarding this contest for control of her husband.
