The Artist Christo Has Died At 84

Christo, who with his wife Jeanne-Claude created massive art projects requiring dozens of years to pull off, including wrapping the Reichstag and creating The Gates in Central Park, has died. In 1972, he explained, “For me esthetics is everything involved in the process — the workers, the politics, the negotiations, the construction difficulty, the dealings with hundreds of people. … The whole process becomes an esthetic — that’s what I’m interested in, discovering the process.

Broadway Rewind: BONNIE & CLYDE Steals the Spotlight in 2011!

Today we rewind to 2011 for opening night of Bonnie Clyde, starring Laura Osnes and Jeremy Jordan as the title duo.

Dealing With A Streaming Film Release During The Pandemic Isn’t Ideal For Cast Or Crew

When directors, cast, and crew make decisions about a movie like High Note, they’re aimed at the big screen. So this weekend’s on-demand streaming release is a bit of a technical let-down, even if the content offers some lighter fare than reality right now. Director Nisha Ganatra:”The movie was shot anamorphic and widescreen, so it’s really a big-screen experience. All of the sound engineers made the concert scenes to feel like you’re right there. … I definitely need people to turn up the sound...

Unions Have A Say In Hollywood’s Potential Return To Work

California Governor Gavin Newsom announced more than a week ago that counties could set reopening plans for the entertainment industry. That hasn’t happened because Hollywood’s various unions are pretty clear that the industry won’t get to shortchange safety. But “the high-wire act for the unions is that while they have a great deal of power, they also have members who’ve been idle for months and are itching to get back to work.” – Los Angeles Times

The Yeats Test

How bleak is it out there? Well, how many politicians are quoting Yeats’s “The Second Coming”? And the poet made it that way deliberately: “Early drafts of the poem illustrate Yeats’s dedication to universalising his message, as he deletes specific references to the French Revolution and the first world war and replaces terrestrial images of judges and tyrants with figures from dreams and myths.” – The Guardian (UK)
