Jon Podhoretz Remembers Terry Teachout

“Terry’s ability to bounce month to month from film noir to the crisis of the symphony orchestra to the talents of Robert Mitchum to the musicality of Nat King Cole to the ever-sticky problem of how and when and whether to separate an artist’s noxious views from his art were the ultimate testament…” – Commentary

Terry Teachout, 65

I regret to write that Terry Teachout, one of ArtsJournal’s original bloggers since 2003, has died unexpectedly at his home in New York at the age of 65. The Wall Street Journal, where Terry was the longtime theatre critic, has an I will write more about Terry in the days to come. He was a generous and valued friend. Though we spoke rarely, we had an active correspondence over the years and he was one of the hardest-working people I’ve ever known. He will be much missed. More later. D...

Quarantined Shakespeare As Performed As Global Conversation

As the speeches are performed by a succession of people in the videos, it feels “as if they are in conversation even though they are in different parts of the world” said Terry. The three speeches suit our current period of contemplation under lockdown as they “ask questions about our place in the planet and where we go when we are no longer physical beings”. They provide an opportunity for questioning – “rather than worrying about what the answers might be”. – The Guardian

When All the Zingers Were Fit to Print

In 1978, a mischievous band of writers that included George Plimpton and Nora Ephron teamed up to create a spoof of The New York Times. Turns out, Times journalists were among them.

Radio: 2 radio stalwarts have passed away, and another LA radio fixture announces retirement

In early November, Dave Beasing wrote to tell me that Terry Greiger had suffered a bad stroke while en route to a transmitter on Mount Wilson; last week, came the news that Greiger passed away on November 18th. Let me tell you a little about Terry. I was an intern at Magic 106 (and for a few months, Power 106) during my days as a student at UCLA. I had the opportunity to work with some truly wonderful people who I will always remember, both in front of the microphone and behind the scenes. One o...

The Pursuit of Capyness is a capybaras-only coloring book

The Pursuit of Capyness [Amazon] is a coloring book featuring capybaras, the large and eminently peaceable rodents often observed just chilling, occasionally in hot tubs. The book is by psychiatrist John Terry, who knows what you need right now. Which is capybaras. To color in. There are more than 50 within, with lots of capybara facts, and a range of complexity to make it fun for kids and adults alike. Here's an inteview with Terry: Capybaras, in general, but especially on the internet, are as...

Portrait of a good bad guy

Edward G. Robinson was Hollywood’s first major art collector, and in 1939 he and his (first) wife and son had a family portrait done in pastels by Edouard Vuillard. La famille d’Edward G. Robinson “passed to his former wife” (i.e., in the divorce settlement) and seemed to have disappeared, but Terry has tracked it down. – Terry Teachout

Memories are made of this

Even as he reaches the age at which names become harder and harder to recall, Terry finds that memories of long ago remain powerfully specific: pop songs of the 1950s, commercial jingles of the ’60s, candy from a vacation destination — and the surprisingly modernist mid-century design of Howard Johnson’s motel rooms.

Has 'Gender Blind' Casting In Michelle Terry's Fresh Tenure At The Globe Truly Meant Something?

Whatever 'blind' casting may mean to Terry and the cohort of each play, the audience sees gender, and that makes a difference. "Many audience members in fact cannot and will not easily look past what seems to them to be a fundamental disconnect between who the gender of the actor as understood outside of the […]

In A Rehearsal Room When Everyone Has A Say On Everything' - At Michelle Terry's Radically Egalitarian Shakespeare's Globe

Reporter Bridget Minamore watches the company at work - six women and six men who decide together who plays which roles (yes, there's gender-swapping, and Terry is playing Hamlet), what costumes to wear, the sound and music design, and even the sign-language sign for "Hamlet."

An Archive of 20,000 Movie Posters from Czechoslovakia (1930-1989)

We couldn't possibly ignore, here at Open Culture, the glory of movie posters: from the film noir era, from Martin Scorsese's predictably sizable collection, and even the deeply askew interpretations seen outside the theaters of Ghana. But somehow, the visual art-inclined cinephile's attention returns again and again to one region of the world: Eastern Europe, especially in the Cold War era. Poland's movie posters have long since accrued a fandom around the world, but we shouldn't neglect the e...

Henry V review – astonishing gender-switched reinvigoration

Open Air theatre, Regent’s Park, LondonMichelle Terry is riveting as Shakespeare’s wartime king in a production that emphasises how roleplaying is integral to monarchyAside from Hamlet, I can’t think of a Shakespeare play that so much reflects the mood of the moment as this. It’s been variously seen as a five-act national anthem and a cynical dissection of war, but it seems appropriate that, at a time of heightened awareness of gender equality, the title role should be played by a woman in the s...
