92YTribeca to Celebrate Broadway; Netflix is Kid Friendly

Johnny de • 92YTribeca will honor the life of playwright Wendy Wassertstein as well as Broadway songwriters Rodgers and Hammerstein throughout the fall, Playbill reported. Beginning on September 8 at noon, its fall programming will open with "Wendy and the Lost Boys: The Uncommon Life of Wendy Wasserstein," based on the latest book by Julie Salamon.

Los Angeles Times takes an in-depth look at the demise of "Lone Ranger" and its significance. Essentially, Hollywood is really watching its budget because of the economy and westerns don't typically play well overseas, which is where studios are really making their money. Johnny Depp, however, is an international moneymaker and if Disney wants him to make another "Pirates" sequel, it'll have to find a way to appease his desire to make "Ranger."

• Former agent Tom Strickler will open a charter school this fall called Extera Public Schools. 254 students in the prominently Hispanic Boyle Heights part of Los Angeles will attend, reported The New York Times.

• Netflix has launched its "Just for Kids" option, a section featuring content suitable for children 12 and under. Kids may select icons of their characters from shows, such as "SpongeBob SquarePants" and "Dora The Explorer," and then watch programs featuring those characters. Check it out at Deadline.
