Facebook's Entertainment Goals; B'Way in Cinemas

Zuckerberg • Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, gave a press conference regarding the future of the number one social networking site in the world. Los Angeles Times runs down Facebook's upcoming overhaul and its planned partnerships with Netflix, Hulu, and others that will make it a huge digital platform for the entertainment industry. Earlier this week, Reuters reported Facebook was seeking an executive to help form relationships with the music and film businesses.

• The annual holiday CD benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS will include performances from the cast of "Anything Goes" and Daniel Radcliffe of "How to Succeed…." The CD "Broadway’s Carols for a Cure, Vol. 13" will be released in November. Read the story at Playbill.

• Four Broadway musicals- "Memphis," "Jekyll & Hyde," "Putting It Together," and "Smokey Joe's Case"- will be shown on silver screens around the world, reported The Hollywood Reporter.

• The technique of Merce Cunningham, avant-garde dancer and choreographer, will be taught after his dance company shuts down at the end of this year. Over the next year, classes will take place at City Center, the Mark Morris Dance Center, and at the Dance New Amsterdam. Check it out at The New York Times.

The Wrap discusses the decreased enthusiasm in Hollywood for President Obama, as evidenced by a lack of vocal support and campaign contributions from industry bigwhigs. It is pointed out, though, that the 2012 election is just revving up and more advocacy may come next year.
