Hello everybody! It's been a while. I haven't been as active a poster as I was after moving out of NYC and shifting my career out of the arts, but it's been so rough seeing the impact of this across all the arts, not only the theatre. (I know that they're not going to be much of a priority to the general public, and I also know the slim margins people are running on.) I wanted to feel like I was doing something, so in lieu of having tons of money myself

Michael in the Bathroom is NOT Hello, Dolly or Chandelier in terms of a song that has truly broken through as some kind of cultural touchstone most people have heard. And the producers refused them a performing slot of that very same song and then did a full length parody of said song without noting the show for which it's score is nominat

How old do people think these people were when this happened? Leo Frank was 31 when he died and Lucille was four years younger than him. By the logic that Ben Platt is too young (at 6 years' difference), you could say that Jake Gyllenhaal is too old (at 7 years'
I've been a huge Steven Universe fan for a couple years now -- it's such a heartfelt, intelligent show, and I'm really glad it's on the air for kids. (It's got a ton of wonderful LGBTQI themes and representation, which makes sense, given the creator is part of the community.) I remember the moment hearing Yellow Diamond (LuPone's character) speak for the first time and having a record scratch in my head like "Wait, was that really...?" I'm thrilled that t
I don't know if I'll get down there for it, but I'm rooting for my friends doing Peter, Who?, which played at the PIT years ago as The Spidey Project that was written and produced in under 30 days to open before the Broadway musical. The original project was a blast to be a part of.
I saw his La Cage back in London before it transferred and honestly loved it and loved his performance in it. But I could also tell watching it that it could very possibly be a pretty divisive performance, so I've never been too surprised at the detractors.

Really? Theatre is entirely about escapism and not any sort of examination or reflection of society? It's inappropriate to suggest that art bears any sort of responsibility to be thoughtful in its content?
I'm so happy to see The Mad Ones in a prominent Off-Broadway venue. I've loved their amazing work for years; Samuel & Alasdair: A Personal History of the Robot War remains one of the most remarkable theatrical experiences I've ever had. I've had the pleasure to see all four of their plays. The specificity and naturalism of their work is truly incredible.
I mean, these websites don't have to listen to Google if they don't want to. Google isn't a law enforcement agency. They just have to follow guidelines if they want to use Google's advertising service. This is far from the first guideline Google has for its advertisers.
It's not just good publicity. It's good customer service to its users. They already have guidelines about how advertisers can't have copy in their ads that are misleading/a
My understanding is that it's fairly standard for a glass of wine to cost about the same in a restaurant as the bottle might retail. It's worth noting that 54 Below pours about a glass and a half rather than a standard 5 oz glass.
John Adams said: "To be honest, I'm not sure that summarily firing people in these situations is really the best solution. If it's "right" for some (like those in Politics, or the Arts), shouldn't it be "right" for all? What would the consequences be if this were applied in the world of Finance? How would our economy fare if men in the world of business and finance were summarily fired at the same rate as those in Politics or the Arts? Certainly, the c
Bar Rail for me, but this comes down strongly to preference. I'd rather a row or two behind those first Ringside seats, just because I don't personally like being quite that close and having to look up. Some people really like that, though! Hence: preference.
The physical layout is exactly the same, it's just that some higher-priced shows are mapped with additional sections.
