The Wooster Group, perched on a street corner in Soho in downtown New York, has been at the forefront of experimental theater for some 40 years. Their startling performances unravel and transform classic texts by Brecht, Shakespeare, Chekhov, Eugene O'Neill, along with their own shocking original works. Six Obies, nine Bessies, accolades from around the world as they tour their works through Europe and Asia. Singular, rigorous, flamboyant. Theater. One of the more ephemeral of art forms. How to preserve the work, chronicle it, archive it for the ages? Yes, there are scripts, props, sets, costumes — a pair of muddy shoes from a 1981 production of Route 1 & 9. But what about experimental theater? Devoted to process, improvisation, the dense layering of ideas and texts and sound and image? How do you catalog something in a constant state of flux? Enter Clay Hapaz who started as an intern at The Wooster Group in 1992 and in 2002 became their official archivist. Voices you'll hear include Clay Hapaz, Kate Valk, Frances McDormand, Hilton Als, Peter Sellars, Spalding Gray and Elizabeth LeCompte.

The Tragedy of Macbeth adapts Shakespeare's familiar tale of blood and betrayal, dreamlike daggers and stubborn stains. But its stars Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand are significantly older than the leads usually are, which makes the whole thing hit differently. Directed by Joel Coen, the film fuses black-and-white cinematography with a clean, minimalist production design that underscores the story's theatrical roots. It's now streaming on Apple TV+.

(This conversation originally aired on October 22, 2021) Welcome to this archive edition ofMidday. Tom's guest today is Elizabeth Strout. She is the best-selling author of eight novels and many short stories. She won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for her wonderful novel, Olive Kitteridge. A film series adaption of that book, starring Frances McDormand on HBO, won eight Emmy Awards. Elizabeth Strout's novel, Olive Again, re-visited Olive Kitteridge. Her latest novel, published in October, puts us in touch again with another one of her magnificent characters, Lucy Barton, who figured prominently in two of her previous novels, My Name is Lucy Barton and Anything is Possible. This third Lucy Barton novel centers on Lucy's first husband, a successful scientist named William Gerhardt. It's in part a road-trip story. Lucy and William, long divorced, set-off together on a journey to find a sister who William only recently discovered he had. Elizabeth Strout often writes about people with big hearts who live in small towns. When we encounter Lucy and William in this novel, they are prosperous New Yorkers who struggle with reckoning about their small-town roots. Lucy and William are fantastic, complicated, wondrous characters who are crafted with compassion and grace and first-rate writerly skill. The novel is called Oh William!  Author Elizabeth Strout joined us on Zoom last fall from Nashville, Tennessee.

The acclaimed actor Kathryn Hunter plays all three witches in the forthcoming Hollywood adaptation of The Tragedy of Macbeth. The film is directed by Joel Coen and starring Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand as the central couple. Hunter tells Andrew Marr that she studied the witch hunts of the 17th century and was inspired by the ‘outcast women' who survived and suffered. Her performance is rooted in something real, but also hints at something created in the mind of Macbeth. Claire Askew's latest collection of poems, How To Burn A Woman, is a cauldron full of spells, power and love. It's peopled with witches, outsiders, and women who stand out. It too traces historic atrocities and celebrates the lives of those accused of witchcraft. But it also looks at contemporary relationships, of love bordering on infatuation, and the feelings of loss, bitterness and isolation at the end of an affair. When peculiar things begin to happen in the frontier town of Springfield, Massachusetts in 1651, tensions rise and rumours spread of witches and heretics. What follows is a web of spite, paranoia and denunciation – a far cry from the English settlers' dreams of love and liberty at the dawn of the New World. The historian Malcolm Gaskill retells this dark, real-life folktale of witch-hunting in The Ruin Of All Witches.

Two Dudes, Brews And Reviews

Oh yeah, you betcha that Two Dudes, Brews and Reviews are back with most darn tootin' episode this side of the Dakota's. We're talking about the Coen Brothers 1996 film Fargo, starring Frances McDormand, William H. Macy, Steve Buscemi, and Peter Stormare. This dark comedy/crime drama is a strikingly realistic take on crime and murder, contrasted with some of the goofiest most incompetent characters we've ever seen - let's not forget the amazing Minnesotan dialect that results in hilarious one-liners throughout. We keep it pretty focused on this one...hardly any tangents or personal stories, as we dissect all of the pivotal scenes of the movie - we even forget to mention what we're drinking! We hope you can forgive us, as we're too caught up in how much of a shithead Jerry Lundegaard is. Fuck that guy! Anyways, we had a lot of fun with this one, and we hope you do too. Thanks for listening and we hope you enjoy the show!

Light up a cigarette (or many cigarettes) and kickstart your existential crisis as you gulp down the 418th Ellises' Analysis. Joel & Ethan Coen followed up their run of hysterical '90s comedies with this black & white sorta-comedy. This might seem like an odd film, but it's actually got more depth and enjoyably offbeat ideas than most of their previous work. Oh and fear not. The Man Who Wasn't There is quite certainly funny. You also can't argue with the casting of Billy Bob Thornton (who's perfecto in the lead role), although Bev was just as enamoured with the work of Frances McDormand. So don't look at the facts. Instead, look at the meaning of the facts (which have no meaning) as they cut the hair and we chat about The Man Who Wasn't There. Well, Actually: Frances McDormand has 4 Oscars (3 for acting, 1 for producing). Also, Surviving Christmas came out even before Halloween (not in mid-November), which is in fact awfully early for a movie about the holly jolly season. Know what goes great with cigarettes?

Public lands have become a refuge for many people who can't afford housing in the west and who are rejecting certain societal norms that no longer serve them well. For some, becoming vehicle-dwellers and nomads is a way to take back control of their lives. This way of life was portrayed in Chloe Zhao's award-winning film “Nomadland” which starred Frances McDormand and featured a number of real-life nomads. While vehicle-dwelling and nomadism are not new, the pandemic has exacerbated the existing housing crisis and “push” factors that have made more people choose nomadism. It's also given rise to community tensions for those who use public lands solely for recreation. We'll learn more about nomad living experiences and how they're pushing the bounds of how we've traditionally thought about the use of public lands.

Editor - Andrew Weisblum ACE THE FRENCH DISPATCH editor, Andrew Weisblum ACE joins forces for the fifth time with director Wes Anderson.  Andy's history with Wes began with THE DARJEELING LIMITED (2007) and was followed up by FANTASTIC MR. FOX (2009), MOONRISE KINGDOM (2012) and ISLE OF DOGS (2018). THE FRENCH DISPATCH was written, directed, and produced by Wes Anderson and stars an ensemble cast featuring Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Jeffrey Wright, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson and many more talented actors.  It tells the tale of the French foreign bureau of a fictional Kansas newspaper, compelled to create its final issue when Arthur Howitzer Jr., the editor of the newspaper, dies suddenly of a heart attack. According to the wishes expressed in his will, publication of the newspaper will be suspended following one final farewell issue in which three articles from past editions of the paper are republished, along with his obituary. The project was first mentioned in August 2018 as an untitled musical set after World War II.  That December, the film was officially announced with Anderson calling it a "love letter to journalists."  Filming took place between November 2018 and March 2019.  Following a year delay, THE FRENCH DISPATCH had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on July 12, 2021 and was theatrically released in the United States by Searchlight Pictures on October 22, 2021. ANDREW WEISBLUM ACE Aside from his rich body of work with Wes Anderson, Andy is also a frequent collaborator with director Darren Aronofsky.  In addition to his Oscar®-nominated work on Aronofsky's BLACK SWAN (2010), Andy also collaborated with him on THE FOUNTAIN (2006), BROKEN ENGLISH (2007), THE WRESTLER (2008), NOAH (2014) and MOTHER!

Stephen Park of the new Wes Anderson film The French Dispatch drops by to discuss his love of cooking shows, performative casting, and being a pioneer for Asian representation in Anderson films. More about The French Dispatch: On the occasion of the death of its beloved Kansas-born editor Arthur Howitzer, Jr., the staff of The French Dispatch, a widely circulated American magazine based in the French city of Ennui-sur-Blasé, convenes to write his obituary. Memories of Howitzer flow into the creation of four stories: a travelogue of the seediest sections of the city itself from The Cycling Reporter; “The Concrete Masterpiece,” about a criminally insane painter, his guard and muse, and his ravenous dealers; “Revisions to a Manifesto,” a chronicle of love and death on the barricades at the height of student revolt; and “The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner,” a suspenseful tale of drugs, kidnapping and fine dining.

This is my review of The French Dispatch. First half is spoiler free, second half gets into spoilers (with a fair warning beforehand). The French Dispatch of the Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun is a 2021 American comedy-drama anthology film written, directed, and produced by Wes Anderson from a story he conceived with Roman Coppola, Hugo Guinness, and Jason Schwartzman. The film stars an ensemble cast featuring Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, Stephen Park, Bill Murray, and Owen Wilson. Its plot follows three different storylines as the French foreign bureau of a fictional Kansas newspaper creates its final issue. Additional cast members in The French Dispatch include Liev Schreiber, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Saoirse Ronan, Elisabeth Moss, Jason Schwartzman, and Anjelica Huston. The project was first mentioned in August 2018 as an untitled musical set after World War II.

Filming took place between November 2018 and March 2019, with cinematographer Robert Yeoman, in the city of Angoulême, France.

In the Envelope: An Awards Podcast

Corey Hawkins' training at the Juilliard School of Drama, and background in singing in church, set him on the path toward becoming what he calls “a well-rounded artist”—and he has a Tony, Emmy, and two SAG Award nominations to show for it! Speaking to Backstage, his go-to resource during post-grad years in New York City, Corey offers fellow actors plenty of valuable advice, particularly when it comes to auditions. “To go into a room and literally just have an opportunity to act, or sing, or dance, or do whatever you do, you get to showcase that and share it with somebody for that little bit of time. And that's a joy.” Born in Washington, D.C., Corey made his Broadway debut in “Romeo and Juliet,” which was followed by an award-winning revival of “Six Degrees of Separation.” After a Hollywood breakthrough in “Non-Stop,” he appeared on “The Walking Dead,” “24: Legacy,” and “Survive,” plus in “BlacKkKlansman,” “Kong: Skull Island,” and as Dr. Dre in “Straight Outta Compton.” This year is Corey's most impressive yet, starring on the big screen as Benny in Lin-Manuel Miranda's movie musical “In the Heights” and as Lord Macduff in Joel Coen's “The Tragedy of Macbeth” opposite Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand.

Wes Anderson's new film, “The French Dispatch,” is about a magazine, and it was inspired by Anderson's long-standing love of The New Yorker. In this special episode, introduced by the articles editor Susan Morrison, cast members read excerpts from classic works associated with the magazine. Bill Murray reads a letter from the editor Harold Ross to an angry writer, Steve Park reads James Thurber, and Elisabeth Moss reads E. B. White. Owen Wilson reads Joseph Mitchell's piece on rats; Frances McDormand reads Mavis Gallant's record of the 1968 student uprising in Paris; Tilda Swinton reads a Calvin Tomkins art-world profile; and Jeffrey Wright reads James Baldwin's “Equal in Paris,” a remarkable indictment of French institutions.
