    ‘Hairspray Live!’ Was Nearly Perfect—And So Important

    You can’t stop the beat when Jennifer Hudson, Kristin Chenoweth, and Harvey Fierstein are this brilliant and a musical’s message is this timely. Why hate when you can dance!

    "In enough ways to fill Harvey Fierstein's bosom, NBC's production of Hairspray Live! was the joyous celebration of love and acceptance that an uneasy cult

     It was pretty clear she was not lip syncing because, as ripped already pointed out, you could hear her heavy breathing and she missed some of the lyrics.

    Because they shot it outside and it was strating to get dark in LA. I work in a school and it's still dark in the moring when I'm on the way there so I just though it was early morning Baltimore :)

    I loved this. By far my favorite of the live TV musicals, in fact it's the first one I made it all the way through (never saw Grease

    I rewatched the movie recently and liked Travolta's performance much more than I remebered. There's a sweetness to it. But no...not better than Harvey.

    Colorblind Ideology Is a Form of Racism

    A colorblind approach allows us to deny uncomfortable cultural differences.

     

     

    "Racism? Strong words, yes, but let's look the issue straight in its partially unseeing eye. In a colorblind society, White people, who are unlikely to experience disadvantages due to race, can effectively ignore racism in American life, justify the current social order, and feel more comfortabl

    It's not like the cast of Hamilton refused Pence service. Not like he was part of a gay couple trying to get a wedding cake in Indiana.

    Dude, shut up, keep your head down  and focus on your transition work !  That's more important than arguing with a Broadway show."

    " Exactly what does she owe you an apology for? You weren't called out in her blog. "

    This question is like asking a Mexican-American person "why do you dislike Donald Trump?  He didn't call you out as being a rapist."  

    Lol...no. Comparing an actress most people have never heard of complaining about behavior on an obsucre message board to a Presidential candidate spouting bigotry on a national stage are nowhere near the s

    "I am assuming you have both worked with the black community and have actually asked them why they don't attend the theatre often. I have."


     LOL. Not even a bong is big enough.


    Tell that to the many groups of African American students I have taken to Broadway shows over the years. Their first question after the show is usually "when can we do this again?" Last year we took them to see Kinky Boots and they loved it. I would love to t

     Forget the bowl, anyone bring a bong?

    "Usually, unless it is a black oriented show, most black people don't attend theatre."


    Dear lord now I need a smoke too.

    Got a chance to see this Friday night. Overall I enjoyed it and thought it was a really fun night out at the theater. I agree the show has problems, especially in the 2nd act, but the problems didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the show.
    I'm usually really suspicious when I read about audience reactions on here. Thanks to the Dance of the Vampire days. But I have to say the audience was eating this up. People were gushing at intermission.
