Magic is in the air this week as some long-awaited events are finally arriving. After years of anticipation, Muggles are descending upon the Orlando area for the opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter; in Los Angeles, Betty White is becoming a series regular again; Lilith Fair makes its musical comeback after a decade, Tiger Woods gets back on course at the U.S. Open; and a Cyrus unrelated to Miley and Billy Ray hits the big screen. Plus, the art world’s premier event hits Switzerland, there are stripping-good times with the annual Broadway Bares event and Showgirls’ “sinsational” DVD release and, if you can squeeze it in before Jersey Shore hits Miami, a little GTL how-to. So grab your Quidditch gear—it’s going to be a week of shameful and shameless wonderment.
