Stephen Sondheim and director John Tiffany are revising Stephen’s 70′s musical Company with some major changes. Most notably, the central character of Bobby “has always been a straight man struggling with commitment issues and multiple girlfriends, and he has been reconceived by Mr. Tiffany as a gay man with commitment issues and multiple boyfriends.” And the character of Joanne, originally played on Broadway by Elaine Stritch, has been reimagined, and Alan Cumming will now perform “The Ladies Who Lunch.”

EW has first photos from the Doctor Who Anniversary Special, including Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt below.

And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT™ to … Matt Dallas. In 2006, Matt nabbed his biggest role to date, as the title character in the ABC Family series Kyle XY, which lasted three seasons. Below you can see some shirtless highlights.

And now we have the 50 GREATEST LOST HITS OF THE 90′S! I’ve often ragged on the pop music of the 90′s for being an arid desert devoid of fun, but there were bright spots, including these 50 songs, which should have performed better on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Like The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80′s countdown, this list is very female-centric (what can I say, I like rock chicks), but hopefully, some of these pop gems may trigger a long dormant memory.

At #19 is … “No Mistakes” by Patty Smyth. From her days with Scandal to her terrific and sadly forgotten 1986 solo album Never Enough, Patty was one of the great underrated pop vocalists of the 80′s. She made a huge comeback in 92 with “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough,” which hit #2, and I like the follow-up “No Mistakes” just as much, but it only reached #33 in March 1993.
