    Tranqulizer darts?

    When I saw Hello Dolly from the Balcony the ushers constant running up and down the aisles flashing their lights was horribly distracting. Way more distracting then the phone itself. I wasn't mad at the ushers because I know they have to enforce the law. I just

    I didn't say anything to her but the person next to her did. She made a gesture like the was brushing them away with her hand and kept talking. She also left before the show was over.

    Oh, there were PLENTY at the time (even before her "final straw" rant, but especially after) who said that breaking character or stopping the performance at all was SO UNPROFESSIONAL (and worse) and rips her to shreds, calling her self-serving entitled snot yadda yadda.

I'm a fan of Patti's talent, but I find her so tacky. She can't even throw shade in a subtle manner. From her memoir and the Advocate profile you just get the sense she is an angry, resentful person. No wonder Sondheim or Nunn don't return her calls and she is considering retiring aft

    I got a last minute ticket on StubHub for the last row in the balcony. Row J seat 1 to the left. The view was fine. Didn't miss a thing. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

    ‘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 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
