BWW Reviews: WEST SIDE STORY Soars @ the Pantages 2010/12/03
Posted: 12/20/2010
Diane - Saw this last night and took my 17 year old daughter. She was bored (she's a teenager, after all) but what was surprising, was that I was bored! This is my favorite musical of all time and I was SO excited to see it and take my daughter. But boy, was I disappointed in this production. I have NEVER left a play...last night, we left at Intermission. I was so very disappointed in the music, the singing, the sets and especially all of the Spanish being spoken. I've lived in LA all my life and can pick up on most Spanish when there is some sprinkled around, but I felt like I needed to look for subtitles.

Comcast/NBCU Make Agreement with Asian American Media 2010/12/17
Posted: 12/20/2010
Frank Chin - The NY Times and the SF Chronicle haven't left behind their white racist pity for the poor Japanese Americans put in camps for their own safety and their patriotic white racist hate for the inferior race that dared attack Pearl Harbor. Now Concast and NBC Universal join in the white racist hue and cry to support the racist stereotype of the wise JACL that schilled for the racists against Japanese American culture and history during WWII. Narasaki a racist playwrght who re-wrote the history of John Okada's NO-NO BOY is the leader of the Yellows that hate themselves for white love. Sixty years later the White news still can't tell the dfference between the treacherous JACL that disgused itself as a civil rights org and were actually paid FBI Confidential Informants. THe whiite papers still can't tell the difference between the JACL created "N0-No Boys" of 1943, when no Japanese could be drafted from a prison camp, and the Draft Resisters from 1944 when the JACL said the camps were not prison camps but "resettlement projects" and got the draft re-instituted for camp internees. The Chronicle hasn't gotten the facts of the Asians living in California straight ever since their arrival at San Francisco in 1849. The White Chronicle still insists that the dancing lion is a Chinese dragon and that the concentration camps weren't concentration camps, and the JACL was a benevolent organization. Frank Chin

SCOTTSBORO, LA CAGE Chosen as EW's Best of 2010 2010/12/17
Posted: 12/20/2010
jay - The Scottsboro Boys incident happened in 1931. I think a broadway play about the Duke Lacrosse Hoax would be much more relevant to conditions today. Why is Broadway still celebrating 80 year old hoax's, but not spending one second on modern day hoax's. We have been inundated with articles, speeches, lectures, books, movies, and even a Broadway play on the Scottsboro Boys. It happend nearly 80 years ago. But I have yet to see the Hollywood or Broadway production on the Duke incident, and the incredible Duke 88, Nifong, the scholarship to a UNC campus for Crystal Mangum, Jessie, Al, et al. The NY Times coverage of this incident was shameful. You really cannot say enough critical things about it. The coverage was really that bad. Soon after, Broadway could do another prooduction on the 15 year old red-haired prodigy at the University of Alabama at Birmingham that was turned out by the football team.

Cheryl Burke To Star In FOREVER TANGO, Begins 12/21 2010/10/06
Posted: 12/20/2010
LCWCWfan - Have to agree with CBFan. Cheryl has been a dancer for the last 12 years. And did ballet for 10 years before that. She has won numerous titles as a professinal dancer and is one of the most succesful pros on DWTS. She spent her own money to go to Argentina to work with Forever Tango for three weeks over the summer. Am looking forward to seeing Cheryl dance in SF with the group and know that she may not do all the lifts that I haveseen the other dancers do nut still know that it will be a great show.

Rico - Duly noted, Jeff. And yes, I'll try that. Oh, wait, in fact, I have, thank you very much. Oh wait, ever heard of suspension of disbelief. One moment it's snow and there's reference to skating on a frozen lake, the next Laurie is sweating like a workout while the girls are not. And there we go... to the deodorant commercial that men sweat more than women sure, but... I have commented about the production. I said I liked it. And I don't swear, it's bad for Christmas. Especially that I don't aspire to be a critic. I am not a wanna-be critic. I saw the musical and gave my thoughts.

Brice - SHUT UP ALL OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is why producers don't want to work with kids at all. Because they have to deal with this. Nobody cares about your kids, not this kid, or any other one. If you choose to have your children work, suck it up. Nobody cares what they book or don't book. They don't have to support themselves. This publication is not The New York Times. It just gives information about shows which is only interesting to the few people who are either bored or interested in shows, as I am. So Please give it a rest. Enjoy the ride, or get off and get a life.

Lucky - Pete, Georgi James name DOES belong in the announcement with those adults. That why her name is there in the first place. Who are you to make a statement like that about a innocent child. What's wrong? Oh I know you didn't get the role you wanted so, now you are online dogging out a beautiful and talented little girl. Maybe you you need to take some lesson from her. Now go back and crawl under your bed with all the other roaches lives.

If you think you are hating on her now stay tune for more up and coming booking. You probably can't booked yourself out of a paperbag, so go and get a life.

Living Theatre Presents KORACH, Previews 12/8 2010/11/29 Page 2
Posted: 12/19/2010
Arthur Von First - Another outstanding presentation by the Living Theater and a kind of summation of the essential anarchistic spirit in both history and culture by the Living Theater's cofounder Judith Molina. Just as outspoken, challenging and provocative as earlier works. This work has Molina's animating and vibrant spirit resonating throughout. Was especially taken with young actress/artist/blogist Kennedy Yanko who lights up the stage upon every appearance and demonstrates the vibrant vitality of the Living Theater still provocative even decades after its original inception. Julian would be proud!

Karen - Lynn, are you out of your mind? Georgi is adorable, and super talented. I have a feeling that you might be one of those freak stage mothers who is just jealous that Georgi works and your brat doesn't. True, Sarah is a cute kid, but why would you even bring her up? Your whole post smells rotten. I don't think this is the forum for nasty stagemom nonsense. Get a life, Mama Rose, I mean, Mama Lynn!
