Mark Kennedy, Ap Entertainment Writer Updated 10:50 am PDT, Wednesday, June 5, 2019 FILE - In this Jan. 28, 2018 file photo, Andrew Lloyd Webber arrives at the 60th annual Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden in New York. A new permanent exhibit opening Tuesday, June 11, 2019, offers visitors an Instagram-ready chance to put on costumes and sing some of Broadway’s most famous show tunes, but also a taste of what’s going on backstage, from controlling fog to switching on lights. While it’s billed as “The Ultimate Broadway Experience,” the truth is it’s more a Lloyd Webber experience, featuring only props, music and characters from the theater icon’s work. His shows “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat,” “Evita,” “Sunset Boulevard” and “Cats” are represented.

Celebrity wax figures
Madame Tussauds Delhi is set to get another occupant. Singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh's wax figure will be unveiled on Thursday (March 28) at the wax museum. The statue was initially scheduled to be revealed on February 28 but was postponed in the wake of mourning over the Pulwama terror attack. Ahead of the release of his figurine, Diljit shared the news with his pic on Instagram.

<>Duane Davis enters the compact disc store front of Wax Trax on Wednesday, October 31, 2018. The store has two locations on 13th Street -- one serves as a compact disc location and the other vinyl record albums. Wax Trax, a Denver landmark, has been operating for more than 40 years. Owners Duane Davis and Dave Stidman bought the store 40 years ago and left behind careers as social workers. (AAron Ontiveroz, The Denver Post) It’s a rain-spattered Saturday afternoon, and while Denver’s Wax Trax Records isn’t exactly quiet — a clerk pricing discs at the front counter is whistling along to the mariachi refrains of Calexico over the stereo — the corner record store is nearly devoid of people. A lone shopper flips through 45s toward the back, yet the rows of waist-high bins brimming with shrink-wrapped CDs that fill the bulk of the shop’s floorspace draw scant attention. When a young woman does walk in, it’s to buy an Operation Ivy patch for … [Read more...] about Denver’s Wax Trax Records rocks 40-year milestone as new doc traces famed label’s Mile High roots
