To be honest, I’m not sure if it’s a good idea to have a Japanese ensemble when most of them have diction problemswith the English language, which is understandable but which inevitably makes it quite difficult to make out most of the lines, at least for me. (I do understand Japanese, but while peeking at the lyrics is no problem to me since I’m a fast reader, it just fe

Gyllenhaal can't handle this role. And I agree with Someone in a Tree that this show is not cinematic. Even so, it'd be interesting to see the Bechdel house looking the way it actually looks, rather than as a minimalist set. I can see this working, maybe. But please no Jake Gyllenhaal. There are so many layers and nuances to this character that he simply won't be able to pull off, and plus he just looks physically wrong for the role.
Immersive: The Blood Comedies and The Winter Machine (both in L.A.). The Blood Comedies is my favorite theatrical experience of any kind. It was just me and one actor in a room for 30 minutes and it was one of the best things I've ever experienced. By the end of it, I was sobbing, the actor was crying, we were hugging, it was extraordinary.
Well, I meant it in the sense that one individual person cannot suddenly decide what a word means on his own (which is precisey what happened with the word "racism". Sure, other people adopted yet, and yes, it now has multiple meanings, but that doesn't take away from the fact that the original meaning still applies.
Now I'm really confused because I don't know who White Twink is arguing with. Like Baritone said, this is entirely a semantics argument. It's all so silly, really. Can't we use the word "racism" in the way it originally, actually means without someone throwing a hissy fit anymore?
Levine's performance was a weird one for me. I thought his stilited performance as Adam was an interesting choice (and it was clearly a choice), and it gave the character a kind of quirky likability. But then when he played Leo he was still stilted and stiff, just in a slightly different way, so then I started thinking maybe he's just not a very good actor and was using artificial stiffness to cover up his natural stiffness.

Is that like the antithesis of “I don’t see color”? “I only see color.” Equally ridiculous.
