Today we rewind to 2012 for the seventh Broadway revival of Porgy and Bess, starring Audra McDonald and Norm Lewis. The musical opened on January 12 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, where it played for 293 performances.

Netflix Has A New, Shockingly Smart Automatic Cancellation Plan

It’s only shocking because it’s against everything about automatic payments and online sign-ups. “The general imperative of any subscription service is to wring a monthly payment out of you from now until the apocalypse. That’s the whole game. It’s why there are entire services and advice columns devoted to helping you cancel. The business model gets an assist from human nature.” – Wired

What It’s Like To Go To An Indoor Movie Theatre Right Now

Clayton Patterson’s importance in general, but especially on the Lower East Side of New York City, comes from his commitment to social and political values for the good of his community.

Interracial Romance Gets A Little More Real In Recent Shows And Movies

And that’s partly because of who’s controlling the narrative. There’s a small, but perhaps growing, “cultural trend in which black women, especially those of medium-to-dark-brown complexions — long positioned at the bottom of the aesthetic and social hierarchy in the United States because of racist standards — are increasingly appearing as leading ladies and romantic ideals in interracial relationships onscreen. In some cases, these are works created by black women themselves.” – The New York T...

The Case For Letting The Restaurant Industry Die

Does this have implications for other systems that aren’t working well for the people who actually do the work? Perhaps. At the least, the industry “offers a very important lens to examine the choices that we make.” – The New Yorker

Live Performance For 2020 Is Over And Gone

No, theatre and dance and opera and concerts won’t be returning in the autumn. “‘I am 100 percent confident that it is not happening,’ said Nancy Umanoff, Mark Morris’s executive director. For many dance companies, that means giving up on lucrative holiday season performances of The Nutcracker, a crucial best seller that, for example, brings in 45 percent of New York City Ballet’s annual ticket sales.” Here’s what may happen for dance, and all of the other performing arts as well. – The New Yor...

Is It Time To Change The Academy Awards To Recognize Streaming-Only Films?

Not just for this year, when the change makes sense due to the coronavirus, but forever? Well, says one critic, “I believe there’s something sacred in the moviegoing experience that I can’t re-create at home. And relaxing Oscar rules risks chipping away at the institution you and I hold dear: going to see movies in the dark, on the big screen, among crowds, where they hold our undivided attention — as opposed to competing with incoming emails, phone calls and other distractions. But the truth i...

John Macurdy, American Bass Who Sang More Than 1000 Performances At The Met, Has Died At 91

Macurdy’s rich voice and stage presence won him accolades over his 38-year career at the Met. “Though he achieved success in key roles like Gurnemanz in Wagner’s Parsifal, King Marke in Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde and Sarastro in Mozart’s The Magic Flute, Mr. Macurdy proved essential to the house for his standout performances of supporting roles, including the Commendatore in Mozart’s Don Giovanni, which he sang 75 times at the Met; Daland in Wagner’s Der Fliegender Holländer; the King of Egypt...

What’s Next For The Arts In Britain?

The director of the National Theatre and the Tate convened (by screen, natch) to figure it out. “At the beginning, it was shocking but people thought the crisis would last three weeks. Possibly six. Now we’re at a moment where we have to think about more than the recovery of individual institutions and our sectors. We’ve got to start thinking: how do we shape the world for the new normal? The pressures we’re under – financial, practical and emotional – mean we’ll not be the same on the other si...

The Future Of Filmmaking

Some things may change until there’s a vaccine – constant testing, small pods of workers instead of a huge crew, no craft services table – but others, like board meetings by Zoom, are here to stay.

Turmoil And Rancor Strike The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, With Calls For The Board And Managing Director To Resign

The musicians asked to take a 50 percent pay cut. Instead, while two-thirds of the administrative staff stayed on with a 20 percent pay cut, “the board opted to temporarily stand down its musicians and put them on the federal government’s JobKeeper program in response to the financial impact of COVID-19.” The musicians are not fond of this plan. – Sydney Morning Herald

A Song Criticizing A Politician Tops The Charts In Poland – And Moments Later, It’s Completely Disappeared

Kazik Staszewski is a rock legend in Poland, and his song, “Your Pain Is Better than Mine,” hit a chord last week – or perhaps too many chords when it hit number 1 on a popular show. “Within minutes of the show ending, the results disappeared from the website of the show’s state-run broadcaster. Mr. Staszewski’s anthem had vanished, along with the rest of the chart.” One of the radio station’s many now-resigned hosts says, “even the Communist regime had more respect for the freedom of speech at...
