Re: “Sleazy Peasy: Blackbird is an Intense Encounter at Theatre South

It's not the Second Coming, but it's a strong arrival, and done on a shoestring.

Ok. I must see this, but I don't want to. I'm expecting the Second Coming.

@Cwabs "Yet" --- give it time. Dreamworks in the meantime.

That's right John. 2003 Ostrander-winner, but it was the opener in 2002.

I think 42nd Street was 2002. Season Opener.

Shrek isn't yet a Disney property.

Oh, I think it can accomplish its goals with a mix-gendered cast, and at least one juror is implicated as foreign, right? (I've seen the film more recently than anything). But there's a lot of "these people" and I get what you're saying. There may be something to it.

Re: “Theatre Memphis Announces 2017-18 Season: From Shrek to Florence Foster Jenkins

The whole "12 Angry People Other than White American Men" thing has always bugged me. The play was written for 12 angry white American men. In today's climate, that's what's going to give it the power to affect people. To leave them with a bad taste in their mouths. To affect change.

Yes, we have angry white American women. But right now, it's the men we need to be staring at, and this play is the perfect periscope.
