ET Obsessions: Bette and Joan's 'Feud,' Maddie Ziegler's Memoir, 'The Play That Goes Wrong,' and King Kong

By

Here at ET, we’re obsessed with a lot of things -- and for
the week of March 6 to March 12, this is what we’re most excited about:

Why We’re Obsessed
With ‘Feud: Bette and Joan’

Here’s what we’re saying: If you’re not watching this show
yet -- get on it. The series, which stars Jessica Lange and Susan
Sarandon
as screen icons Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, centers on the
backstage of Hollywood's all-time greatest feuds. The series details the
bitter, often violent rivalry between the two actresses during the shooting of the
1962 melodrama What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? Sunday’s
premiere was nothing short of addicting. Adding to the stellar performances by
Lange and Sarandon are Judy Davis as Hedda Hopper, Catherine Zeta-Jones as
Olivia de Havilland, Sarah Paulson as Geraldine Page, Kathy Bates as Joan
Blondell and Kiernan Shipka as B.D., Davis’ daughter. Enough said?

Why We’re Obsessed
With ‘The Maddie Diaries’

Make way for Maddie -- from her early days on Dance
Moms
 to being Sia’s go-to girl, Maddie Ziegler is just getting
started. The 14-year-old dance prodigy is publishing her first memoir on
Tuesday, documenting her time as Abby Lee Miller’s protégé and sharing advice and lessons
for other teens and dancers. It’s undeniable the young actress is making her
way through the spotlight, and adding to her list of credentials, too: dancer,
actress, So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation judge
and now author. “I feel like a lot of people don’t know everything about me,”
Ziegler told ET, while telling People her hope is to inspire others to keep
dreaming. “It’s so worth it to find something you are truly passionate about in
life.”

Why We’re Obsessed
With ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’

So, what happens when everything goes wrong on stage? Well,
laughter, according to director J.J. Abrams, who found this West End production
so funny that he had to bring it stateside for its Broadway debut. Co-written
by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, The Play That Goes Wrongtells
the story of the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, who are trying to put on a
1920s murder mystery. Of course, things don’t quite go according to plan as the
team of actors struggle to make it through to the final curtain.

The Play That
Goes Wrong
begins previews Thursday, March 9 and officially opens
Sunday, April 2 at the Lyceum Theatre.

Why We’re Obsessed
With 'Kong: Skull Island'

Yes, we’re talking about that Kong, the
mythic, giant ape that has lived on the big screen since the early ’30s. Now
he’s back as Brie Larson and Tom Hiddleston take on the eighth wonder of the
world in Kong: Skull Island. Aside from the obvious inclusion of a
giant ape causing a ruckus, the movie is set in 1973, and follows a team of
explorers and soldiers who mistakenly stumble into the domain of the fabled
Kong while traveling to an uncharted island in the Pacific. So what can we
expect from the monster movie adventure flick, other than the talented Larson
and smoldering Hiddleston? Well, we’ve heard there’s a major end credits
scene you don’t want to miss!
