State of the Arts Episode 94 just published! In this thrilling new episode my cohost Anthony Bonilla and I welcome Off Broadway actor, producer and creative director Matt DeRogatis. Teaming up with his mentor RJ Lamb, this mutli-talented stage maestro formed a non-profit organization called Ruth Stage in 2017, which has locations in both New York City and New Jersey. Matt DeRogatis is the chairman and creative director of this organization who produced three critically acclaimed runs of Lone Star by James McLure, followed by The War of the Roses with the help of RJ Lamb, and several Shakespearean adaptation, one of which was directed by Tony Award Nominees Austin Pendleton and Peter Bloch. Matt and RJ became the first stage producers to ever be granted the rights to Cat On A Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams. This was Ruth Stage's most recent production, after the Glass Menagerie. Sadly, RJ Lamb passed away a few months after his production of The Passion of Christ a few years ago. Matt DeRogatis has stepped into into his mentor's demanding position as creative director. Ruth Stage shines on today as a bright star of the deep universe that is the theatrical arts.

This part of the world has inspired some of the great American writers, from Faulkner and Harper Lee to Tennessee Williams and more. Seeing it through their eyes offers a new perspective, and a new way to explore, one of the most fascinating parts of America. Travel with us from Alabama to New Orleans - this is the USA, the write way"The sunlight dripped over the house like golden paint over an art jar.'" F Scott Fitzgerald wrote these honeyed words in 1920 – they open The Ice Palace, a tale of a restless Southern belle who strikes north with her new love. As I drove the curved path to the Fitzgerald Museum in Montgomery, Alabama, I thought of these words as I rounded the bend. Evening light had coloured everything in pastels. The cedar-shingled house, where F Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald lived for a stint in the early 1930s, was washed with peach sunshine.

She also starred as Sandi Chandler on the television series Szysznyk from 1977 – 1978.She was a series regular on Tony Orlando and Dawn's Rainbow Hour for a season on CBS doing stand-up and comedy sketches with the show's guests.

The Webb telescope looks back billions of years while the GOP fights to take us back decades. Ivana Trump died. GOP pile of rat spew Gym-bag Jordan said he had no regrets for calling a 10-year-old rape victim a liar. The vile Indiana AG continued the war upon women by terrorizing the doctor that performed the abortion on the 10-year-old rape victim. Despite a security tape showing the Georgia Guidestones getting blown up by a person, Christian nationalist Lauren Witzke blathered that God must have "shot a laser or a lighting bolt down' to destroy the dumb rocks. Radicalized MRA loser Nick Fuentes laid out his vision for the US where birth control, sex, homosexuality, and pornography are illegal and women aren't allowed to go to school or vote. Elon Musk's creepy Dad went full-Tennessee Williams and had a child with his stepdaughter. Former Secretary of State fascist John Bolton casually admitted to orchestrating coups abroad and added the Trump cabal was too dumb to overthrow a government. Beto O'Rourke is gaining on his totalitarian opponent in the race for the Texas governorship.

There are a lot of people saying a lot of things. Some would make him out to be the hero, the villain, the victim, the perpetrator... in their story of who Elvis was. Baz Luhrmann's Elvis is not Gurdip's, Justin's, Ryan's or Bec's Elvis. And we know plenty of people are happy to tell the world right now how it's not their Elvis, either. But we're here to tell you, Baz Luhrmann's Elvis is a beautiful work of art, one that has not even begun to be fully appreciated. We explore the artistic necessity of the film's bending of history, try to understand the narrative reasons for exclusions, as well as celebrate the film's underlying message that music is a power that brings people together and lifts us above the worst of who and what we can be. Oh, and... on the the theme on flying... what does a 1960 Marlon Brando movie, based on a Tennessee Williams play, have to do with Elvis? Has every single critic out there except us missed the most poignant and touching final detail? You may never watch this film the same after hearing Part 2 of our review. Our deepest gratitude to our Patreon supporters, and to all of our listeners these past four years: thank you. TCB.

Author and pastor Scott Sauls knows what it's like to be his own worst critic. “Even if we're being unfairly critiqued, there's usually at least a kernel of truth in there somewhere that gets under our skin and bothers us,” Sauls says on this episode of The Russell Moore Show. Those kernels of truth can lead to guilt and shame. And, as Sauls says, “We have done things that render us guilty.” But we also have a victorious Savior who “accomplished a satisfactory victory” for us. Sauls and Moore talk about regrets, grace, seasons of suffering, and clinging to the gospel. They discuss the range of the human experience—everything from freedom and joy to guilt, shame, anxiety, and depression—and the God who draws near to us. Sauls' new book is called Beautiful People Don't Just Happen: How God Redeems Regret, Hurt, and Fear in the Making of Better Humans. Sauls and Moore reference “The Catastrophe of Success” by Tennessee Williams, Moore's recent episode with Arthur Brooks, and “Learning in War-time” by C. S. Lewis.Quotations mentioned in this episode include:“People may spend their whole lives climbing the ladder of success only to find, once they reach the top, that the ladder is leaning against the wrong wall.” - Allen Raine, though often attributed to Thomas Merton “[Envy] consists in seeing things never in themselves, but only in their relations. … If you desire glory, you may envy Napoleon, but Napoleon envied Caesar, Caesar envied Alexander, and Alexander, I daresay, envied Hercules, who never existed.” – Bertrand Russell “Preach the gospel to yourself.” – concept by Martin Luther, quote by Jerry Bridges “The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” – Roy and Jane Nichols in Death: The Final Stage of Growth, compiled by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross “The Russell Moore Show” is a production of Christianity Today Chief Creative Officer: Erik Petrik Executive Producer and Host: Russell Moore Director of Podcasts: Mike Cosper Production Assistance: CoreMedia Coordinator: Beth Grabenkort Producer and Audio Mixing: Kevin Duthu Associate Producer: Abby Perry Theme Song: “Dusty Delta Day” by Lennon Hutton Learn more about your ad choices.

In deze speciale bonusaflevering gaan we praten over een aantal voorstellingen die we hebben gezien in opdracht van het Holland Festival, het grootste internationale podiumkunstenfestival van Nederland. Holland Festival bestaat dit jaar al 75 jaar! Anousha ging naar Washington DC en Ebissé en Mariam naar Zwitserland.In deel 1 gaan we het hebben over 3 voorstellingen geïnspireerd door bestaande canoniek zoals Moby Dick, de Kersentuin and Deathbed. In de aflevering bespreken we wat het betekent wanneer kunstenaars van kleur bestaand "wit" werk herinterpreteren en bespreken ook representation done well!In deel 2 praten we het over Yemandja van Angélique Kidjo.Voorstellingen die we hebben gezien en over spreken in deze aflevering zijn:Moby Dick or The Whale:Moby Dick is een roman van Herman Melville uit 1851 en gaat over de jacht op de witte potvis Moby Dick[a] door kapitein Achab van de walvisvaarder Pequod, die in een eerdere confrontatie met het dier zijn been heeft verloren. Deze potvis zou zoveel rampen hebben veroorzaakt voor de walvisvaarders dat het dier uitgroeide tot een mythe. De bewerking van Sophia al Maria en Wu Tsang, verweven met het commentaar van een onderbibliothecaris (Fred Moten), gaat in op de onderaardse stromingen in de roman. Daarbij stuiten ze op een weerspannige sociale orde en saamhorigheid onder zeelieden, overlopers en schipbreukelingen (CLR James). De stomme film, geregisseerd door Wu Tsang en met een live uitvoering van de compositie van Caroline Shaw, Andrew Yee en Asma Maroof door BRYGGEN Bruges Strings volgt de witte walvis boven en onder het wateroppervlak en ontwikkelt een visueel universum dat zich verzet tegen de uitbuiting van de aarde onder het imperiale kolonialisme. Wu Tsang is een transgender regisseur en haar werk verkent de queer-transgendergemeenschap. Haar moeder is Zweeds-Amerikaans en haar vader Chinees. Ze identificeert als transfeminine en transguy.Link: https://www.hollandfestival.nl/nl/moby-dickDe Kersentuin:Voor het eerst werkt Rodrigues, Portuguese director, nu met een bestaande, klassieke tekst. Anton Tsjechov schreef zijn tragikomische klassieker De Kersentuin in 1904. Hoewel het stuk gaat over de opoffering van een eeuwenoude boomgaard tijdens de opkomst van het kapitalisme, gaat het voor Rodrigues in de kern over het begin van een nieuwe wereld die nog niemand begrijpt. De wereld verandert sneller dan de familie kan bijhouden. Ieder personage reageert anders op de situatie. Ljoebov (gespeeld door Huppert) klampt zich vast aan het verleden en is radicaal in haar nostalgie en melancholie, terwijl bijvoorbeeld zakenman Lopachin (een rol van Adama Diop) soepel met de ontwikkelingen meebeweegt.link: https://www.hollandfestival.nl/nl/la-cerisaieDeathbed:ChoreograafTrajal Harrell genaamd Porca Miseria Trajell baseert hij op de verhalen en gevechten van zeer verschillende, maar even sterke vrouwen, zoals Maggie uit Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof en de Grieks-mythologische Medea. Via hen verkent hij op een meeslepende manier kwesties van identiteit, gender, seksualiteit en macht. Ook doorbreekt Harrell de grenzen tussen dans, theater en beeldende kunst.

Tennessee Williams was keenly interested in outcasts, artists and wounded people like himself. He also wrote about the south and regardless of where his character's find themselves, the mentality of the south looms large, whether they are holding onto their heritage or pushing it away. As Milton looks at his play The Glass Menagerie in this episodes, he allows himself to swim through it, giving us an example of how one might begin the process of working on it. “You have to allow yourself to wander,” he says. “This is my period of letting myself go where the hell I want.” Have an acting question for Milton?

Ned Rorem for eleven

Synopsis While many great composers have also been great conductors, this can be the exception rather than the rule. On today's date in 1959, the American composer Ned Rorem tried his hand at conducting the premiere of one of his own compositions, a chamber suite entitled “Eleven Studies for Eleven Players.” Rorem recalled: “I learned that the first requisite to becoming a conductor is an inborn lust for absolute monarchy, and that I, alone among musicians, never got the bug. I was terrified. The first rehearsal was a model of how NOT to inspire confidence. I stood before the eleven players in all my virginal glory, and announced: ‘I've never conducted before, so if I give a wrong cue, do try to come in right anyway.'” Fortunately for Rorem, his eleven musicians were accomplished faculty at Buffalo University, and, despite his inexperience, Rorem certainly knew how his new piece should sound. Rorem's Suite incorporated a few bits recycled from music he had written for a successful Broadway hit—Tennessee Williams' “Suddenly Last Summer”—plus a bit from an unsuccessful play entitled “Motel” that never made it past a Boston tryout. Rorem's own tryout as a conductor convinced him to stick to composing, although he proved to be a fine piano accompanist for singers performing his own songs. As for “Eleven Studies for Eleven Players,” it's gone on to become one of Rorem's most-often performed chamber works.

Today on the lost sci-fi podcast an author who knew what he wanted to be when he was only 10 years old, how many of us can say that? This native New Yorker kept story ideas in a notebook before he was a teenager. Born in Utica New York on the 20th of January 1927. Like many authors of his time he served in the United States Army during World War II, he was a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne. After the war he graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in English and a minor in Psychology. Why Psychology? He said he did it so he could "get inside the heads of the characters in his stories“. Obviously this man had a plan! Although we know of him because of his work as a Science Fiction author he didn't stop there, he also wrote fantasy, horror and mysteries. He wrote more than 50 short fiction stories starting in 1951 and kept writing short sci-fi for almost 50 years. In addition to writing he was the editor of Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine from 1979 until 1985 and he was the editor and publisher of the sci-fi magazine Gamma. Gamma wasn't exactly a success, publishing only 5 issues between 1963 and 1965. Gamma didn't fail because of a lack of talented writers. The debut of Gamma in 1963 featured a story by Thomas Lanier Williams the 3rd, better known as American playwright and screenwriter Tennessee Williams. Oh and Ray Bradbury and Rod Serling also contributed stories to the magazines very first offering. A near mint condition copy of that first issue of Gamma sold not that long ago for $125, but don't worry a slightly less pristine copy is still available if you're an aspiring collector for only $16. I thought about buying it but shipping to Costa Rica where I have lived for the last 5 years would add another $50 and take up to month to get here. Our accomplished and successful author wrote a few provocative mystery novels, including Strip for Murder and Psycho Sinner as Eric Thomas, 7 Deadly Sinners as Christopher Sly and Negative of a Nude. He was also known to have used the pen name Chester H. Carlfi and may have written at least one novel under the House Name Troy Conway, but we don't know for sure. His writing career began in 1951 with "The Wallpaper" which was published in Other Worlds magazine. His legal name is Charles Edward Fritch, but most know of him as Charles E. Fritch. You'll find Fritch in the Internet Movie Database, also known as IMDB, thanks to a short story he wrote titled The Misfortune Cookie, which was adapted for an episode of the television series The Twilight Zone which aired in 1986.
