A collection of sketches and songs for those with a twisted sense of humor. If you can laugh at a man who picks up a loaded revolver, thinking it’s a phone, you'll love this L.A. improv group.

Siegfried & Roy call him their protégé, but 26-year-old Romeo is more than a magician. The crafty songbird delights audiences with a voice as magical as his tricks.

A Broadway import in which the audience plays its own role…that of Tony and Tina’s invited "guests." This crowd-pleaser keeps ’em rolling in the aisles —and afterwards, rolling up to a full-on Italian buffet, complete with champagne and wedding cake.

25-year-old @samweaving is about to break out this fall, starring in Netflix’s horror film “The Babysitter,” fittingly out today on Friday the 13th. That’s not the only place you’ll be seeing her, though — Weaving’s got a role Showtime’s “SMILF” and another alongside Frances McDormand and Woody Harrelson in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Though she’s got a full plate at the moment, there’s one role she’s got her eye on: Marilyn Monroe. “I’m a little too young at the moment, but it’s on my bucket list,” the actress told WWD (📷: @dandoperalski) #wwdeye

After designing the new @louisvuitton and @bulgariofficial flagships and a @chanelofficial boutique opening in Japan, @petermarinoarchitect has another project on his plate: The Lobster Club.

Bronze hues, bespoke material detailing, blush and chartreuse tones and a heavy emphasis on Picasso can be seen throughout. Mark your calendars for Nov. 1 for the much-anticipated opening.
