BWW Review: Jeremy O. Harris' Bold and Dynamic SLAVE PLAY Moves To Broadway

Slave Play ventures into subject matter the likes of which this playgoer has never seen presented on Broadway, and does so in a bold, even outlandish manner that should be admired and welcomed. This older straight white critic won't claim to get everything the 30-year-old gay African-American playwright is saying, but if voices like his-those that have long been nurtured and developed by non-profit Off-Broadway-can be commercially successful on Broadway, the fabled boulevard can advance just a l...

Nancy Drew Is Still Alive At 90, And Also Still 16 Years Old

How, why, and why is Nancy so hard to adapt to the screen? “Never out of print, she has appeared in more than 250 books and counting, in movies, on television shows, in CD-ROM games. She has been reinvented, in ways that fans have not always embraced, for seemingly every era.” (And she’s being reinvented now, again, for a new series.) – The New York Times

A British Greeting Card Company Says It Isn’t Trying To Own A Banksy, Just Use It To Sell Cards

The Yorkshire greeting card company said it wasn’t trying to own his work, but “Banksy claimed he had been forced to open a shop in Croydon, south London, this week, as a result of the dispute. … The street artist was advised by his legal team to sell his own merchandise to avoid his trademark being used by someone else under EU law.” – BBC

Poet, Novelist, Translator And Biographer Elaine Feinstein Has Died

Feinstein was 88. She’d published more than a dozen poetry collections and 15 novels, translated Russian poets and wrote biographies of Ted Hughes and Bessie Smith. “Feinstein often explored the relationship between being Jewish and being English — the ‘not quite at-homeness of the English Jews in England,’ as Paul Morris put it in The Encyclopedia of Jewish Women. Ever present with her was the knowledge that had her ancestors settled in Germany rather than England, her life might have been ver...

The First Black Woman To Direct In Hollywood Says That Industry Thought She Was ‘Too Black’

Euzhan Palcy’s A Dry White Season earned Marlon Brando an Oscar nomination, but that didn’t impress Hollywood executives, she says. When she pitched other films with black leads, “‘They were very matter of fact: they’d ask: ‘Can’t the lead be white?’’ she said. ‘I was pitching a story about a black freedom fighter and they asked me if he could be white. Incredible things like that.'” – The Guardian (UK)

College Kids Don’t Want Your Fancy ‘Reinvention,’ Just A Plain Old Library

There’s a lot of glitz going on in the college library funding race. A media room! A media room with a green screen! No, a Maker Space! And – perhaps the best idea of them all – a library escape room where students save a rare book! But actually … “Survey data and experts suggest that students generally appreciate libraries most for their simple, traditional offerings: a quiet place to study or collaborate on a group project, the ability to print research papers, and access to books.” – The Atl...

A Three-Year Saga Comes To A Conclusion As Jeff Koons’ Tulip Sculpture Lands In Paris

Though many in France said Koons’ sculpture “donation” – more on that in a minute – was “opportunistic and cynical,” the artist said “he hoped his tulips would become part of the local landscape and that Parisians would interact with them.” After the terrorist attacks of November 2015, the artist announced that he would give Paris a sculpture that echoed Picasso’s Bouquet of Peace. But “Koons only donated the concept for Bouquet of Tulips. The production — costing 3.5 million euros, or about $3...

This innovative J-shaped toothbrush makes brushing easy-breezy

If you’ve ever bought a toothbrush because “9-out-of-10 dentists recommend it”, raise your hand. Here’s something those phony adverts never tell you: toothbrushes are only as good as the users. All toothbrushes can be effective when used as intended, but no matter how advanced the bristles, grip, or connected app designed to help you change your behavior, most people just don’t brush their teeth correctly. In fact, research shows only 1 in 10 American adults get it right.Ryan Schwartz, son of ...

The Secret To A Life Well-Lived

If you’re tired of other people’s “Month of Gratitude” posts on Facebook, sorry to tell you this, but that’s the secret – gratitude. Wildly, if you want to save for retirement or something, gratitude is also the way to go: “We’ve repeatedly been able to show the close link between gratitude and self-control. In 2014, we demonstrated that people induced to feel grateful, compared with those induced to feel happiness or no emotion at all, became much more willing to wait for a larger financial re...

What’s The Bestselling Album In Britain Right Now? Abbey Road, Obviously

The last time The Beatles’ Abbey Road was #1 on the charts, a U.S. president was laying the groundwork for his later impeachment, and Harold Wilson was Prime Minister of the UK. This return to the top “sees the album set a record – the gap of 49 years and 252 days since its initial chart-topping run ended in early 1970 is the longest gap before returning to number one.” – BBC

The toothbrush’s grip, or bristle softness, or zig-zag pattern isn’t the problem. It’s the way we use our toothbrush, which is the problem.

The Ministry Of Ferrous Metallurgy: Modern Russia In Absolutely Brilliant Illustrations By Alexandra Zheleznova

Alexandra Zheleznova paints a world, where modern Russian reality is interwoven with mysticism, industrial aesthetics and the motives of the German Middle Ages: luxury vehicles, smoking chimneys of Siberian factories, snow, oil, blood and monsters with the heads of dogs. The web page of the project “Ministry of Ferrous Metallurgy” may not be understood easily. There are characters... Source

Groundbreaking Oscar-Nominated Actress And Singer Diahann Carroll Has Died At 84

Carroll was the first Black woman to star in a non-servant role in a TV series in the U.S. “NBC executives were wary about putting Julia on the network during the racial unrest of the 1960s, but it was an immediate hit.” Carroll also won a Tony for No Strings and an Oscar nomination for Claudine. The director and producer Ava DuVernay wrote, “Diahann Carroll walked this earth for 84 years and broke ground with every footstep. An icon. One of the all-time greats.

Breathtaking Color Photographs Of The American South Taken By William Eggleston In The Late 1960s And Early 1970s

Until the 1970s, color photography was considered inappropriate for the artwork. Only black and white photographs met the standards of art critics. But then came William Eggleston and showed that color images can have a place in modern art. The colors in Eggleston’s photos are saturated and intense, the characters pose in front of the camera, and traditional ideas about photographic composition... Source

Out of Town Tryouts- Yea or Nay? And Why?

There's one step that, though, that has a number of producers on the fence the out of town tryout. Some shows manage to make a huge splash out of town, driving pre-sales due to buzz and exposure. Others face delays or suffer financial consequences. And then there are those that transfer from the West End or Off-Broadway. So what's the deal [Author: Julie Musbach]
