This isn’t a great time for teachers and performers of improv comedy. Caroline Martin, who taught at Upright Citizens Brigade: “I have seen and been invited to do improv shows online on Zoom and on Instagram, and I have declined because there’s something about it that fundamentally makes me sad.

Appreciating Tony Allen, Afrobeat Creator Who Has Died At 79

Allen was a Nigerian drummer who perhaps didn’t invent Afrobeat but certainly popularized it and took it everywhere. “Allen’s swirl of jazz, Yoruba and highlife was unlike anything the world had ever heard: a full-body polyrhythmic workout that would give most drummers sore wrists just thinking of it.” – The Guardian (UK)

Peter Jonas, Whose Innovations Changed Opera, Has Died At 73

Jonas ran the English National Opera and the Bavarian State Opera in his career, emphasizing “bold interpretive approaches to the great yet elusive and multilayered operas of the past.” And he changed the options for opera houses’ rotations: “He championed overlooked 20th-century works, reached out to living composers and presented many premieres. Yet he also made the case that Baroque operas were not just fare for early-music aficionados but also compelling music dramas.” – The New York Times ...

Author Sarah Perry Says Books, And Writing, Felt Useless For A While

Perry (The Essex Serpent) couldn’t even go into her study at first; books seemed items of contempt. But: “Recently I have concluded that all this amounts to a kind of failure of courage. As lockdown continues, I find my imagination has not faltered against this hard reality, but has itself grown harder. Everything which was sad before is sadder now, but everything which was wonderful is more wonderful. Imagination roots itself in feeling, and the novel I’d been working on grew larger and more v...

A Glimpse Of The Future

The U.S. and other countries have been looking to China and Italy to predict what the pandemic would be like during the most intense times of infection. Now, take Wuhan as an example, the slow reopen is accompanied by fear of a second wave. “Trains, highways, and buses are humming anew and people venture out more.

Reporting The Box Office – From 1922

There’s literally nothing to report for the box office this week of 2020, so why not go back in history and see what was going on 98 years ago, during the first year of box office reporting? “The surprise of the week came at Clune’s, where The Isle of Zorda, at a scale of 25 cents for matinees and 35 at night, got better than $7,000 at a house that usually does around $3,500. The feature is being held over, although this week business is falling below that done last week.” – Slate

The Berlin Phil Tests A Path Out For Orchestras

The concert hall was empty; the musicians were greatly reduced in number and sitting far from each other; they wore masks backstage and were tested before the event. “Though the seating arrangement was strange — and it was momentarily odd to see a conductor and concertmaster bow to each other rather than shake hands — it was also inspiring to see musicians trying to find some way, however awkward, to keep making live art.” – The New York Times
