Or that they will encourage other victims of sexual abuse to come forward, deal with their trauma and seek justice for themselves while simultaneously educating the masses on warning signs so these sorts of crimes can be avoided or stopped.

We've learned our lesson with Jussie Smollett. NEVER again will we report accusations as fact without proof. Even if they're graphic & fit a popular narrative."
Please stop using the Jussie Smollett example as a rule when it is clearly an exception. Because one person lied publicly does not now mean that anyone who speaks out is lying.

While we’re at it, no Jennifer Lawrence, Jack Nicholson, Reginald VelJohnson, Zooey Dechanel, Paula Poundstone or Steven Segal! Keep them far away, too!

Michael Cera was a pleasant surprise for me. For someone whose speciality is small, internal awkwardness, I didn’t expect his style to translate to the larger size of theater. Yet I thought he was wonderful in Lobby Hero and made the most of an underwritten part in The Waverly Gallery.

I don't know that it "fixes" anything to make minor tweaks and changes to try and fool the audience and conceal the misogyny (or whatever it is) that's inherent in the material. It really doesn't help that nearly every major musical revival is directed by men (and often the same three or four men). I think ther

I don't recall ever saying that adaptations HAVE to stick word for word to the original - but it's also a choice, and frankly a lot less controversial one. I'm not sure exactly what criticism you're defending here, if you specifically saw issues with this particular adaptation, but for every one person that thinks "gee this seems like it could work better if ____" there might be 10 more i
ccbway said: "This was an adaptation of a book, which they mostly adhered to. Seems like people complaining about retreading old material should really be a complaining about the source material.”
I disagree here. An adaptation doesn’t have an obligation to include every single word of its source material, warts and all. An adaptation has a chance to improve and expand upon its source material. If something from the source doesn’t work or

Yeah, just want to chime and say thanks for the heads up on the $33.33 tickets, too. I was able to swing by the box office around 4:30 and get a pair for the week of opening in the orchestra for cheaper than I was planning on spending for one ticket in the rear mezz.

At first McCarthy wasn’t asked to participate because it was assumed her schedule was too full and although Sherman-Palladino wanted her, she was told it couldn’t happen. Eventually, they figured something out and were able to use her briefly. No drama,

This is a wonderful score and I would be very disappointed if the singers didn't do it justice."
It was a wonderfully inventive, creative production with strong d
Gizmo6 said: "If only Latinx actresses can play Anita then only white actresses can play Christine or Carlotta. See how racist that sounds."
The difference is that West Side Story is about race and, as you know, The Phantom of the Opera is not. A show can’t be about a racial divide if there isn’t actually a racial divide depicted on stage. This is a concert, so it’s a little less clear cut, but I think ever
