Is it racist to say that some forms of entertainment are more popular with some communities/minority groupsthan others?

How do the suppression of cancer cells address the needs of healthy cells?

Let me ask you this question: how do you propose to end systemic racism in the theatre? Or do you? This is not going to happen by reupholstering seat fabric.

Well said.

 



How much will you be willing to spend on theatre post closure  Jul 2 2020, 10:16:01 AM

A little perspective. Without intervention between 20-28 million Americans are on the verge of being evicted from their homes. This will cause a level of economic suffering this country hasn't seen since the Great Depression. Probably won't leave much money for people to spend on broadway tickets.

Your imagining such a presumption is the product of your own flaw: you want to process the letter on an individual and personal level whereas it is plainly intended on a systemic level. That there may bewhite theatre people who are more attuned to the BIPOC experiencedoes not contradict the systemic truths. Oh and by the way, the fact that you


Vanity Fair on Broadway's Reopening - "Not Until There's a F***cking Vaccine"  May 22 2020, 04:18:32 PM

Considering asymptomatic spread temp checks seem pretty useless.

WestEndGal said: "I think the idea that we need a vaccine before theaters can reopen again is just not feasible - you’re not going to eliminate the risk of covid entirely, so it’s go to get to a stage where the virus spread is at low enough levels that opening theaters becomes manageable if there were to be an outbreak, and there are sufficient testing and track and trace measures in place. So yeah, I can see that not being until next spring given the likelihood of anothe

"The cure may be worse than the disease which is only fatal to 1% of confirmed cases "

Tell that to my dead friends.

Glad you're feeling better.



Cursed Child Cancelled Until Sept 6  May 12 2020, 03:24:29 PM

Checking temps seems pointless due to asymptomatic spread. That alone would definitely not make me feel more comfortable going to see a show.



Chris Jones' Pessimistic Outlook for Chicago and NYC Entertainment  May 7 2020, 11:08:56 PM

Sadly I can't picture myself going to the theater again until there is a vaccine or an effective treatment. Same goes for the movies and other large, indoor events. I know too many people who have died and have too many friends and family that are at high risk. It's horribly depressing to think about.

$400 is nothing now for concerts. When I was pricing Lady Gaga for my now cancelled Las Vegas trip, the nosebleed with fees were $400. The rest of the seats were in the $600 range. The closer seats to the stage were over $800. Before anyone says well that is Vegas and Lady Gaga, floor

RCMP Apologizes After Streaming Press Conference on Double Slaying With Cat Filter Activated

"I bet you were going to find a way to try and hijack the conversation as an opportunity to rant again on your favorite subject and I won! It wasn't much because the odds were understandably low, but God bless your little heart. It was like betting on whether a train would arrive on time in Germany."

Exactly.

That was just one character though. I would imagine even minor changes would be a lot more work than Sonic.

I'm just not sure the cat/human hybrid thing can be pulled off on film. It's like they were scared to go to far in either direction and ended up with a disturbing middl

I think the alternate score clips are my fav.
