Greg Kinnear as Aticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird  Feb 25 2020, 06:22:25 PM
I’m a bit surprised so many people seem excited for this casting, here and elsewhere. Kinnear doesn’t seem to have the gravitas necessary for the role. I’ve always found his style somewhat smarmy and hokey. But go Greg

The Band's Visit Seating Question  Jan 22 2020, 12:57:00 PM

My question is do I miss more action by sitting house right (stage left) or house left (stage right)? I have the option of either. From other commenters, it sounds like I want to sit as close to stage as I can.

Thanks in advance!

There’s a lot of action on the left side of the stage so house right is your

Bad or odd set designs  Jan 10 2020, 11:12:22 PM
I realize this is an old thread, but I’m flabbergasted to see so many disparage the Falsettos revival’s set. I thought that show was practically flawless, and a large part of that was the set. The child-like innocence of the blocks as these characters grow into and build news lives, and then the stark realism as things took a tragic turn, only to return to the blocks as they rebuilt once again. I thought it was gorgeous.

Riiiiight.

Name one.”


Who sees you?

Who are we when we’re challenged?

How does the the insidious legacy of hundreds of years of racism and white supremacy affect us all?

To what lengths will people go to protect whiteness?

Is it possible for a white person to ever truly empathize and connect with a Black partner?

How has the legacy of oppr

I agree. When watching Daniel Day Lewis play Abraham Lincoln, I kept thinking how much better Susan Sarandon would have been.”

Harris asks interesting questions, and his focus on reaching a wider audience, and specifically creating a space for Black audience members, is to be lauded. We need a hell of a lot more artists like Jeremy O. Harris.

I got to seeEuan Morton's Hedwig on tour and loved him. I keep going back to his rendition of Wicked LittleTown. Hannah Corneau who played Yitzhak isalso now Elphaba on Broadway.

Yep. And theatre is going to continue to slide further into irrelevance."

All 2019 Box Office statistics to the contrary, but go ahead on that assumption.

Yes, there is a niche audience who gets to go see theatre. And it’s only going to get worse as prices soar.I’m not talking about money, although the entire Broadway yearly box office is like one Marvel
