STAGE MANAGED, 28min., USA, Comedy Directed by Guy Noland A suburban community theater must successfully produce a knock-off version of “My Fair Lady” in order to keep their doors open. http://www.viralentertain.com/ Get to know the filmmaker: I grew up in the theater and made the transition to filmmaking in college, but always held onto my love for the stage. When the pandemic hit, everything shut down in Hollywood and all of my friends were out of work, so I thought, “Hey, let's put something together to keep everyone working!” Then I had to come up with something that we could do on a shoestring budget, easy, not a lot of locations, and would hit a niche audience. That's when I came up with the idea of Stage Managed. You can sign up for the 7 day free trial at www.wildsound.ca (available on your streaming services and APPS). There is a DAILY film festival to watch, plus a selection of award winning films on the platform. Then it's only $3.99 per month.

Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw audiobook. Pygmalion (1913) is a play by George Bernard Shaw based on the Greek myth of the same name. It tells the story of Henry Higgins, a professor of phonetics (based on phonetician Henry Sweet), who makes a bet with his friend Colonel Pickering that he can successfully pass off a Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, as a refined society lady by teaching her how to speak with an upper class accent and training her in etiquette. In the process, Higgins and Doolittle grow close, but she ultimately rejects his domineering ways and declares she will marry Freddy Eynsford-Hill – a young, poor, gentleman. - The play was later the basis for the successful movie adaptation "My Fair Lady" with Audrey Hepburn as Eliza and Rex Harrison as Prof. Higgins.

During a flight from Paris the other day, my friend David, who is also the owner of our new label Team Nowhere, listened to the podcast. When he landed, he called me and said, "I have figured out what you are doing with the podcast". Curious, I inquired, “What is it that I am doing?". With his usual wit, he replied, "This is not just an interview, it's a rock n' roll psychoanalysis!". In retrospect, I think he's right. As an interviewer, I'm always interested in the musical journeys of the artists I speak with. However, I'm also curious about our histories as artists because I think there's a link between personal history and art. The way I see it, art is a chemical reaction that is formed by our upbringing, our environments (private and public) as well as the things that happen in the world. By asking my interviewees their personal stories, I try to unearth what led to their art. My experience has shown that it begins even before they are born more often than not. Cosmo Gold traces its lineage back to Emily Gold's grandparents. Her grandmother was singer Marni Nixon, who famously dubbed Natalie Wood's singing parts in West Side Story and Audrey Hepburn's in My Fair Lady. Her grandfather, Ernest Gold, was an Austrian-born composer who won an Academy Award for his work on the movie Exodus. That's quite a musical heritage! In Emily's case, her music is even more closely tied to her dad's, Andrew Gold's. He was not only a talented musician but also a passionate UFOlogist, which, as we'll see, had a significant impact on the music of Cosmo Gold. As well as making music for himself, such as the recently resurrected viral mega-hit "Spooky Scary Skeletons," Andrew Gold has contributed to the hits of others like Linda Ronstadt. Cosmo Gold embraces Andrew's musical freedom and sci-fi appetite. A pop space odyssey, Krong, their debut album, is a concept album about a friendly alien who abducted the band and taught them the secret to a peaceful civilization. The band is grateful to Krong for teaching them the virtue of doubt. In a world of self-confidence, entitlement, and where feelings take the place of facts, it seems wise indeed. Aside from the beautiful message and homage found in Krong, there is also a real sense of musicianship. Krong's arrangements show the band's skill and maestria. Compare the stripped down live version of Krong they taped in our studio with the album version, and you'll see what I mean. Founded in 2019, Cosmo Gold is an LA-based alt-pop band featuring Emily Gold (vocals, guitar, synth, keys), Mike Deluccia (drums, synth, keys, guitar), and Stephen Burns (bass, guitar, vocals). You can fly to Krong on any platform of your choice and escape our world. https://www.instagram.com/cosmogold4real/?hl=en https://linktr.ee/cosmogold Call Krong:

With episodes nearing 350 in the STAGES archive, it's time to revisit conversations featured in our previous seasons. STAGES spotlights such episodes, in case you missed them the first time ‘round - or so you can simply savour, a second listen. Either way, you'll be accessing precious oral histories from the people who were there, on and around our stages. Dolores Dunbar possesses an energy that has equalled that of her teenage students. In her role as Head of Musical Theatre at the McDonald College of Performing Arts she has contributed to the development of the next generation of performers with a knowledge garnered from extensive industry experience in a variety of roles. After several decades as nurturer, guide and mentor, Dolores is stepping down from her teaching role; but is certainly not stepping away from the industry she adores. She made her professional stage debut in the Australian company of Funny Girl for J.C. Williamson's. A stack of shows followed for Dolores, including My Fair Lady, Fiddler on the Roof, Chicago, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Les Miserables and Shout. Other creative roles have seen her choreograph the immensely successful production of Nunsense, serve as Company Management and direct productions of Eurovision, Copacabana and Grease. Always ready with an amusing anecdote that serves as a brilliant history lesson, Dolores is a walking encyclopaedia of our musical theatre past and the many characters who have inhabited its stage. We should all maintain the optimism, energy and passion of Dolores. She is a great champion for all of us to aspire toward. It is a joy and honour to revisit this conversation with Dolores and celebrate her immense contributions as Performer and Teacher. Bravo Dord!

Pick a highly acclaimed movie you have never seen, then we would all review it. The selection process made for some very interesting choices. Now, we aren't going to tell you who picked what film, you will have to listen to the show to find that out, however we will tell you what films were selected, and they are as follows: The Cabinet Of Dr Caligari. The classic silent German film from when way back in 1921, when even our Graham was young. This film has received much renewed attention as a talking point in the Nicholas Cage feature The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent. Check this out to find out if the review team rate it as highly as Nicholas Cage. Sunset Boulevard (1950). Billy Wilder's acidic take on Hollywood turned out to be a marmite film for the review team. Listen in to find out who liked it and who didn't. Inherit The Wind (1960). Spencer Tracy and Frederic March star in this court room drama based on the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trail. The one that some in the team had not heard of but all of enjoyed. Also prompted a fascinating discussion about the relevance of the movie in today's society. My Fair Lady (1964). Pardon me. What, the Oscar winning British musical based on the play Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw? Is this a mistake? Not at all, although everyone thought the person who selected this had picked it for mischievous reasons, which I guess is a good clue as to who selected it. Vertigo (1958). The classic Hitchcock thriller and Sight & Sound's selection for the greatest film of all time. Do the review team agree with Sight & Sound – check out our discussion. Five great films for which we give our views. Let us know what you think, if the show is a success, we will pick another five classics in the near future (or will that be the near past?). Oh, one final comment, if you listen closely, you will find out how reviewer Darren got his name. A great story. Until the next time, see you At The Flicks.

Accomplished songwriter and film producer Kurt Rosenberg has been composing Scottish/Irish Music for over 25 years. Today, he is well on track to achieving his dreams of collaborating with some of the world's finest, as well as partnering with the theatre industry to help produce his musicals.Rosenberg's music encompasses various genres of Celtic, Folk, Pop, 40's Ballroom to 50's Jazz and Film.“Each piece of my music conveys a different emotion, thought, or message,” he says. “I want to compose melodies that touch people and are memorable.”“Highland Home,” Rosenberg's ode to Scotland, is about longing to return to a place that fulfils us and brings us joy. He went on to produce the award-winning music short film Highland Home, internationally recognized for its thoughtful lyrics and distinct sound.Highland Home was selected to screen at prestigious festivals including the Cleveland International Film Festival, The Oxford Short Film Festival, and the World-Fest Houston International Film Festival. It won a Platinum Remi Award from World-Fest, a Director's Choice Award at Santa Barbara's International Fine Arts Film Festival, and the Best Music Video Award at Bath's Jane Austen International Film Festival. Rosenberg won Best Lyrics Award at the International Music Video Awards in London.Being successful in the industry requires hard work, passion and dedication to the craft. “A composer has to be disciplined,” Rosenberg explains. “This means that they must work on their music every day. If a composer wants to be successful, they need to view it as a job, not as an avocation.”He particularly loves the process of songwriting and composing. Though perfecting a melody and getting the arrangement down can take days, even weeks, Rosenberg finds it to be a rather “mind-freeing, liberating task” that allows him to experience a meditative state.As Rosenberg continues along his musical journey, he is driven to make a lasting impact on others through his lyrics and sounds. Several exciting projects are in the works that will surely attract listeners of all backgrounds worldwide.“The Moon Followed Me to Falmouth,” Rosenberg's English sea shanty-inspired song, will be completed as an animated music short by the end of May. It will begin screening at film festivals in July/August.“Strolling Down Brighton Pier” is Rosenberg's homage to English musical theatre (think “My Fair Lady”). The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will record the instrumental track in London on August 2. Rosenberg plans to add the vocals in 2023, and release the film in 2024.“Dawn at Gougane Barra,” Rosenberg's Irish Orchestral piece, will be recorded in Dublin on August 8. This recording will be the soundtrack for a music drone video. Filming is scheduled for August 10 and 11 at Gougane Barra. It will be screened in Ireland and the USA at hired cinemas, and will be posted online. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Becoming United Ephesians: Becoming Who You Are November 13, 2022 I love a good musical. My favorite is probably Singin' In the Rain... or Seven Brides For Seven Brothers... or... My Fair Lady (which I get to see in Portland with my daughter next Spring!) ...there are just so many good ones! Another that would land in my top ten would be The Music Man... the classic with Robert Preston and Shirley Jones. I've worked with enough young interns to know that I can't take anything for granted when it comes to the musical education of the younger generations. So, for those of you who have not yet seen this classic film, allow me to enlighten you.   “Professor” Harold Hill arrives in River City, Iowa, posing as an organizer and leader of a boys' band. In reality, he's a just a slick con man. He convinces the naïve townspeople to purchase band uniforms and instruments from him, while promising to train the young band members. But his real intentions are to skip town with their money.   As you might expect, nothing goes as Professor Hill planned. I don't want to spoil the ending for those of you who haven't seen it. So, let's just say that something special starts to happen when those boys put on their band uniforms. A new identity starts to be shaped, and there's a transformation that begins to happen in the community. The boys are playing a variety of instruments – it's not all trombones or cornets; each one playing at their own level of competence. But something about being part of the group, dressed in their uniforms but contributing their own unique ability to the band, creates something powerful among them.   We are studying our way through the book of Ephesians in a series we've called, Becoming Who You Are. This week, we'll be looking at the idea of unity – what it is, what it isn't, and how we promote and protect it.    At the end of the movie, we see the uniformity of the River City boys' band, as they march in formation, all dressed alike, steps in sync. But it's their unity – being in tune with one another, playing at the same tempo, maintaining the same rhythm, and staggering their breathing, that matters most…each one playing their part and contributing to the performance of the song.   The beautiful organism that we call the church is also filled with a diverse group of people…all crafted in the image of God…but with different backgrounds, a variety of giftings, and individual uniqueness. We are not the same, but the miracle of Jesus is that unity brings it all together.

The 37th Academy Awards proved to be a questionable affair with several great movies coming out that year, yet there seems to be one person in particular who may have been pulling the strings in their favor.  Is My Fair Lady worthy of the Best Picture award of 1964?

Jonathan Joseph and Rachel Elspeth Gross interview Henry Wilkinson to discuss the process of restoring a 1960's Givenchy dress that was worn by Lee Radziwill and Jackie O. Henry is a fashion historian who specializes in Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn. He's got this habit of finding, acquiring and then bringing back to life pieces from the house but of stories which might rival the women who wore them. Henry distinctly remembers as a child, being gifted physical copies of the classic films My Fair Lady and Breakfast at Tiffany's. For Henry, his early love of fashion is permanently entwined with Hepburn and Givenchy, although he will admit to a certain amount of Cecil Beaton 's influence. Two weeks into lockdown in the United Kingdom, Henry found to borrow his words, a tangible link to the Past, not many of us could see a listing for an early 1960s, Givenchy bodice plus maybe five inches of skirt and see something special but Henry did. Now he's completed the process of restoring what has turned out to be a significant one of a kind piece from more than 60 years ago. If that's not enough to impress you. After a ton of research, it turns out that the dress had originally been owned and worn by Lee Radziwill & Jackie O. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Currently leading the North American tour of the hit show, “Oklahoma!” as Laurey Williams, Sasha Hutchings proves to be a performing powerhouse. Sasha's love for dancing has brought her to where she is today. Dancing as a career was a slow burn for her, but her parents and teachers' support helped her take it more seriously and pursue the craft. She attended Oklahoma City University, where she discovered musical theatre and fell in love with it. And while Sasha says she only does things she's good at, she admits that dancing was hard but that she kept going and trained so she was continually learning and improving her skills. She reflects on how theatre people deal with a certain amount of uncertainty, and the things she did during the shutdown, including taking voice lessons and auditioning for TV shows. With the new take on the classic story of “Oklahoma!” as well as its diverse casts, Sasha gets real about both the positive and negative responses to the show as they tour different cities all over the country. To her core, what matters is to perform with an intention that comes from a place of love and compassion. After all, Sasha considers theatre as a sanctuary where we people, despite our differences, go to watch, feel, and ponder collectively. Sasha Hutchings is an actress, dancer, and singer with several Broadway credits including "Oklahoma!", "Memphis", "My Fair Lady", "Motown: the Musical", "Rocky", and "Hamilton" where she was an understudy and ensemble member in the original Broadway cast. She plays the character of Hope on the Starz comedy series, "Run the World". Her other TV credits include "Smash", "Master of None", "Jessica Jones", "Fosse/Verdon", and "Blue Bloods". Sasha has been recently cast in a recurring role in AMC's upcoming sci-fi comedy, "Damascus", and is currently playing Laurey Williams in the North American tour of the “Oklahoma!” Connect with Sasha: Twitter: @sashahutchings Instagram: @sashahutchings Connect with The Theatre Podcast: Support us on Patreon: Patreon.com/TheTheatrePodcast Twitter & Instagram: @theatre_podcast TikTok: @thetheatrepodcast Facebook.com/OfficialTheatrePodcast TheTheatrePodcast.com Alan's personal Instagram: @alanseales Email me at feedback@thetheatrepodcast.com.

For nearly three decades, Lane has devoted her life's work to helping herself and others learn how to transform their personal experiences of trauma into powerful works of art. Her passion for the human journey and cultivating connection through our shared experiences led her to develop a therapeutic and collaborative songwriting program that merges creativity, self-expression, healing, and community. She went on to study classical voice and musical theater at both Baldwin-Wallace College and Cincinnati Conservatory of Music (CCM). As a professional singer/actor, she starred in leading roles, including Eliza in My Fair Lady at Lyric Opera Cleveland, Laura in The Glass Menagerie at Seaside Music Theater, and the title role in Antigone at The WestEnd Theater in NYC. Between her performances, she taught after-school arts programs, offered private voice and piano lessons, and started developing programming and workshops to help others feel better about themselves and their journeys through their experiences in the arts. Now, instead of finding solace on the stage and in other people's stories, she began to delve into her own stories, taking up songwriting with a fury. Transforming her past into powerful works of art was a catalyst for healing and the marriage of her many gifts and talents. She released her debut album entitled Fertile Ground in 2015 on her own record label, Third Road Records. Lane now devotes her passion and work to helping those who suffer from trauma through her therapeutic arts non-profit organization, THREAD. THREAD is a 501(c)(3) therapeutic arts non-profit organization that serves the needs of survivors of abuse, those struggling with addiction and mental health, cancer survivors, incarcerated men and women, veterans, and those impacted by inequality and discrimination surrounding gender, race, sexuality, and religion. It also implements programs to address the urgent needs of communities affected by gun violence, natural disasters, and other crisis scenarios.   Don't forget to follow CB, comment, rate, review, and subscribe to the show on your preferred platform!

Hi, I'm Christy Shriver and we're here to discuss books that have changed the world and have changed us. And I'm Garry Shriver and this is the How to Love Lit Podcast. This episode we are wrapping up our three-part series on George Bernard Shaw otherwise known as GBS and his phenomenally successful play, Pygmalion. In week 1, we introduced Shaw, some of his political ideologies, the Greek myth Pygmalion from where Shaw took his inspiration, as well as ACT 1. Last week, we discussed Acts 2 and 3. We talked about Rosenthal's revolutionary psychological discovery named the Pygmalion Effect. We spoke to the symbolism of language, of clothes, of the gramophone, and mirrors. We highlighted the parallels between Alfred Doolittle and Professor Higgins. We allowed Shaw to preach at us as he humorously characterized the “undeserving poor”, and “middle class morality”, all Shavian terms, and finally we got to Eliza, the flower girl transformed into a duchess crashing through that point of no return otherwise known as the climax. She fools all of good society into thinking she's genteel getting away with declaring that it was “not bloody likely” she'd be walking home but would be taking a taxi. And of course, all of this is very didactic, a word he uses to mean moralizing, but it's also very very funny. We smile when Alfred Doolittle justifies begging for money to buy liquor by claiming that it couldn't possibly ruin him. It would all be gone by the end of the weekend. He further claims (and of course this is Shaw's voice moral judgement toward us theater attenders) that anyone would be as immoral as he, if we were also the undeserving poor. He's simply too poor to afford morals; morals are luxuries of the middle class. Shaw's wit is on full display when he's sermonizing which brings us to the final two acts of the play. Of course, they sermonize the most, but also are arguably the most entertaining for the same reason. We referenced the end of the play and that Shaw would never have endorsed the thematic license My Fair Lady took with the ending, but today we will make Shaw's case for him as to why. For a good long time, I was with the rest of the world and was highly irritated at Shaw's anti-climatic ending. Having said that, after reading his sequel, hearing his commentary, and understanding better Shaw's purposes for having it end the way it does, I now completely agree with Shaw, there is no other way to end the play but for Higgins and Eliza to part ways. Well, there went that, I hope it's okay we're going spoil the ending at this point. Well, let me put it this way, if you've watched My Fair Lady, or Pygmalion, you may think that Shaw think that Shaw spoiled his own ending because there is not a happily ever after ending to this romantic comedy. People feel deceived when they get to the end because romantic comedies are not supposed to end in angst but especially one with the word romance in the title. We haven't brough it out yet, but there is a subtitle to this play, and many have claimed Shaw has misled us with what he's attempting to do in the play through the subtitle. The full title of the play is Pygmalion, a Romance in Five Acts. He labels it a romantic comedy, and most people reading that reasonably assume certain characteristics that are usual to comedies, at least classically modeled ones. For one, there should be a wedding at the end, and secondly, the lead man should end up with the lead woman, a love story gone right. Everyone knows, comedies end in marriage; tragedies end in death.

George Bernard Shaw - Pygmalion - Episode 1 - No One Is Safe From The Acerbic Wit Of GBS!Hi, I'm Christy Shriver and we're here to discuss books that have changed the world and have changed us. And I am Garry Shriver, and this is the How to Love Lit Podcast. This is our second week discussing the life of George Bernard Shaw as well as his most famous piece, Pygmalion. Last week, we introduced this Nobel prize winning author, as well as gave some background as to his life, personality, and controversial views. We discussed the Greek myth, Pygmalion from which Shaw took the title. We also introduced the characters as we meet them in Act 1. Today, our goal is to get through acts 2 and 3 which will take us through the climax of the play. I hadn't realized the climax was in the 3rd Act by watching the movie or play production; I'd always thought of it as the ball or garden party like in the movie My Fair Lady. I also didn't know how dogmatic Shaw was about everyone wanting to change his ending not just of the play but even more so for the movie production that won him an Oscar for Best Screen Play. He has particularly choice words to say for it, as only he can choose them. He, like Higgins, in Pygmalion is a loveable often foul-mouthed bully at times. Charles Poore commented on this in the New York Times on March 23 of 1949, “The Greatness of George Bernard Shaw has often been obscured by his own blinding and enthusiastic appreciation of it.” Wow! That sounds exactly like something Shaw would say about himself. The way Shaw took this obnoxious prophet persona called GBS and made it into a global brand GBS. Without it he might have just an obscure Irish music critic, failed novelist, semi-successful playwright. With it, he became legendary. Our GDPR privacy policy was updated on August 8, 2022.
