Sarah Ruhl is an award-winning writer whose play Eurydice has been turned into an opera at Lincoln Center.  Ruhl is also a Pulitzer Prize finalist and a Tony Award nominee for her play In the Next Room (or the Vibrator Play). After Ruhl gave birth to twins, a hospital worker noticed that Ruhl's left eye was droopy. That turned out to be a 10-year battle with a paralyzed face. We talk about the sadness of not being able to smile and the joy of working in the theater again. “Now What?” is produced with the help of Steve Zimmer, Annika Hoiem and Alex Wolfe. Audio production is by Nick CIavatta. Photo credit is Greg Constanzo.

I'm Nelsie Spencer. I'm a writer, performer, writing teacher/mentor/coach. And a podcaster. I have over 30 years of experience as a writer: I produced a playwright (My Heart Belongs to Daddy), an award-winning screenwriter (Valley Inn), and a published novelist (The Playgroup). My writing career began when I wrote myself a role with my best friend Laury Marker. Our play, My Heart Belongs to Daddy,  premiered at Lucille Lortel's White Barn Theatre in Westport, Ct. And had 3 more sold-out and critically acclaimed productions! Along the way, we worked with producer Dash Epstein and director Morton DeCosta (both Tony-Award winners). Since My Heart Belongs to Daddy, I've written stand-up, become a published novelist (The Playgroup) and worked as a radio talk show host with comics Cory Kahaney and Maureen Langan. Nora Ephron called my first screenplay, A Girl's Best Friend, "a brilliant premise and a wonderful screenplay." When she took the script to Sony and they passed on it, she told them, "You're idiots! Read it again!" God bless you, Nora! In 2015 the award-winning indie film, Valley Inn (co-writer with Kim Swink), was released. My time as a radio talk show host, stand-up comic, and actor made podcasting an easy, fun, and inevitable next step. Last year, I created Losing It! with Nelsie Spencer, life lessons from some of my favorite losers. After taking a few decades off from serious acting, I made my way back to the stage last year when I wrote and performed Day of the Dead Daddy, my solo show. It premiered in NYC at The Chain Studio Theatre. This year, I was honored to be invited to perform my show (via Zoom) at The Marsh Theatre's International Solo Show Festival where Day of the Dead Daddy won an Honorable Mention. I plan to bring the show to Edinburgh for their Fringe Festival next summer. Throughout my unorthodox career path I've met and worked with many interesting and influential people such as super-agent Ari Emanuel, feminist icon Gloria Steinem, and Oscar winners Jane Fonda and Mary Tyler Moore. I've been helping other writers find and hone their stories and their voices since 2006. My current mission: To create community, support, and inspiration for the writer.

It's not every day you get a musical based on a teenage boy suffering from social anxiety. In fact, there are no musicals like Dear Evan Hansen. After winning a Tony Award for Best Actor for portraying Evan Hansen from 2015–2017, Ben Platt is now on the big screen reprising the title role. Platt is supported by a strong cast including Kaitlyn Dever, Amandla Stenberg, Nik Dodani, Colton Ryan, Danny Pino, Julianne Moore, and Amy Adams. So why did this lauded coming-of-age stage musical flop at the box office and get panned by the critics? We got a tale to tell in our coverage of this unique cinematic experience!

Sarah Ruhl is a playwright, essayist, and poet, as well as a two time Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony Award nominee. Sarah joins Carol Fitzgerald and Austin Ruh to discuss her memoir, Smile: The Story of a Face. Smile is the story of Sarah Ruhl's decade long journey with Bell's palsy, as well as her experiences as a mother and artist. After surviving a high-risk pregnancy, half of her face is left paralyzed. She's told that most patients recover within a few days, but Sarah's face doesn't go back to normal. Her life is roses to the public, with a play going up on Broadway and her family growing, but she struggles with happiness, both in what others can see on her face and what she reflects on internally. Sarah talks to Carol and Austin about how people feel emotion, and especially in how external expressions have the power to control our own feelings. She discusses beauty, symmetry, and expression. Then about her writing, how her story grew into a memoir, how certain writing projects are handled differently, and a bit about what she's working on next.

À Broadway, les grands spectacles sont de retour, après un an et demi de fermeture. Une grande partie de la magie de Broadway repose sur des travailleurs souvent peu reconnus : les costumiers. Des maisons qui existent depuis des décennies et qui ont été durement frappées par la crise sanitaire  De notre correspondante à New York, Depuis quelques semaines, dans l'atelier Parsons and Meares, les machines à coudre ont repris leur vrombissement frénétique. Avec la grande réouverture de Broadway, les costumiers croulent sous les commandes. « En ce moment, on travaille sur Hamilton, le Roi Lion, Wicked et on vient tout juste de terminer tous les costumes en satin de "Moulin Rouge". » Parsons and Meares est l'un des quelque cinquante ateliers new-yorkais qui fournissent des costumes pour Broadway, la télévision et le cinéma. Sally-Ann Parsons se réjouit de cette reprise d'activité après la pause due à la crise sanitaire : « On avait fait les derniers essayages de Moulin Rouge, et puis Broadway a fermé le lendemain, le 12 mars. On pensait rester chez nous deux semaines, ça a duré 18 mois ! » Durant cette fermeture, l'atelier de costumes s'était tourné vers la fabrication de masques et de tenues de protection contre le Covid. Une façon de s'assurer un petit revenu. Aujourd'hui, le satin, le cuir, les perles et la soie sont donc de retour. Sally-Ann Parsons, dont l'atelier est le seul à avoir reçu un Tony Award, la prestigieuse récompense des productions de Broadway, est fière de participer à la magie des spectacles. Ici, tout est fait à la main. « Ici, par exemple, nous avons un des corsets pour la petite Nala du Roi Lion. Toutes les perles que vous voyez sur le côté sont enfilées une à une puis cousues au corset. » La réalisation de ce costume a pris 226 heures. Et pour un tel travail, il faut forcément de la passion : « Pour moi, c'est le rêve. Le Roi Lion est le spectacle qui m'a donné envie de faire ce métier. Et le fait que maintenant j'ai la possibilité de travailler dessus, c'est totalement fou ! L'autre jour, on a pu assister à la répétition générale et voir tous nos costumes à nouveau sur scène, c'était très émouvant. » Et c'est justement pour faire connaître leur savoir-faire et tout le travail que nécessitent les costumes que les ateliers de New York ont organisé une exposition spéciale. La première du genre. L'occasion pour les visiteurs de voir la magie de plus près. « Ça change notre vision de pouvoir regarder ces détails et rencontrer les gens qui fabriquent ces costumes et voir à quel point ils sont passionnés. » « C'est incroyable tout le travail qu'il y a derrière ces costumes, c'est époustouflant ! » Maintenant que les spectacles sont de retour, les ateliers de costumes espèrent pouvoir dépasser les difficultés financières que la crise sanitaire a provoquées. En 2020, ils ont perdu plus de 26 millions de dollars de chiffre d'affaires.

Like so many former "E-Ticket" guests, James explores the moment he realized that the Parks meant something truly special for him--and in doing so shares his love for the Disney films ( "Alice in Wonderland," "The Jungle Book," "Robin Hood," "Aladdin"), the characters ( Baloo, Captain Hook, Maleficent, The Muppets), and so many wonderful lines of dialogue from the catalogue.

I'm Nelsie Spencer. I'm a writer, performer, writing teacher/mentor/coach. And a podcaster. I have over 30 years of experience as a writer: I produced a playwright (My Heart Belongs to Daddy), an award-winning screenwriter (Valley Inn), and a published novelist (The Playgroup). My writing career began when I wrote myself a role with my best friend Laury Marker. Our play, My Heart Belongs to Daddy, premiered at Lucille Lortel's White Barn Theatre in Westport, Ct. And had 3 more sold-out and critically acclaimed productions! Along the way, we worked with producer Dash Epstein and director Morton DeCosta (both Tony-Award winners). Since My Heart Belongs to Daddy, I've written stand-up, become a published novelist (The Playgroup) and worked as a radio talk show host with comics Cory Kahaney and Maureen Langan. Nora Ephron called my first screenplay, A Girl's Best Friend, "a brilliant premise and a wonderful screenplay." When she took the script to Sony and they passed on it, she told them, "You're idiots! Read it again!" God bless you, Nora! In 2015 the award-winning indie film, Valley Inn (co-writer with Kim Swink), was released. My time as a radio talk show host, stand-up comic, and actor made podcasting an easy, fun, and inevitable next step. Last year, I created Losing It! with Nelsie Spencer, life lessons from some of my favorite losers. After taking a few decades off from serious acting, I made my way back to the stage last year when I wrote and performed Day of the Dead Daddy, my solo show. It premiered in NYC at The Chain Studio Theatre. This year, I was honored to be invited to perform my show (via Zoom) at The Marsh Theatre's International Solo Show Festival where Day of the Dead Daddy won an Honorable Mention. I plan to bring the show to Edinburgh for their Fringe Festival next summer. Throughout my unorthodox career path I've met and worked with many interesting and influential people such as super-agent Ari Emanuel, feminist icon Gloria Steinem, and Oscar winners Jane Fonda and Mary Tyler Moore. I've been helping other writers find and hone their stories and their voices since 2006. My current mission: To create community, support, and inspiration for the writer.

In addition to reviewing and discussing faith issues spotted in the film, Dear Evan Hansen, Kenny and Mike interviewed director Stephen Chbosky. Included in the interview is a meaningful discussion regarding the faith and mental health issues presented in the film which are currently impacting children and teenagers.  Joining Mike and Kenny in the interview were several students from Mike's high school. Kenny and Mike offer their throughts on the reviews and reaction to the film by many on social media. Based on the Tony Award winning Broadway musical, Dear Evan Hansen touches on mental health among teens. One of the characters commits suicide which is not depicted.  Faith Elements Spotted: A Statement that those who die of suicide and depression die within the grace of God as anyone who dies by a disease or medical condition. The contrast between the heaviness often associated with depression and the pressures of the world in contrast to accepting the yoke of Christ which relieves burden and weight. Matthew 11 The eternal reality and graciousness of God makes the low one's mistakes and low points of life in this world seem small. Through Christ, God does not abandon us nor leave us orphaned. John 14 Offering grace to those that bring pain and loss reflects the grace God gives us. Interview With Director Stephen Chbosky

This week on The Big Talk, I am sharing an incredible conversation with my dear friend Antuan Magic Raimone.  Together, we are talking about leadership, vulnerability, and a true favorite of theatre lovers around the world, Hamilton. Magic is a New York City-based TEDx speaker, performer, and advocate. As a childhood sexual abuse survivor, he is using his voice to help those who have not found their own. He is a member of the Office of Victim Services Advisory Council and has given keynotes at the University of Virginia and the SPECTRUM Conference in Albany, NY, as well as the United States Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA).  With more than 20 years of professional performance experience, he is currently with the Pulitzer Prize and 11x Tony Award-winning Hamilton as a Universal Swing, covering the six male ensemble members for the five U.S. companies. Additional credits include the 4x Tony Award-winning In the Heights (Broadway, Off-Broadway, and First National Tour—Graffiti Pete U/S, Associate D/C, and Vacation Swing) and six years with the Radio City Christmas Spectacular (Ensemble). Becoming Magic is Antuan's debut as an author.  We start with Magic's backstory and how seeking therapy for the childhood sexual abuse he experienced actually brought him to becoming a speaker. He truly wanted to help the center that helped him, and without any financial means to do so, he volunteered to speak — to use his voice to assist others in getting help, too. And the power of Magic's influential voice has only grown since then! In this episode, we'll explore: Magic's first invitation to a TEDx stage and what he felt in that moment How he landed his role in Hamilton, what it was like when the pandemic left theatres dark, and what's its like now to be back in rehearsals  Designing and curating the life that you desire and making space for what is meant for you What it's like to work in a space that's intentional and purposefully offering support for you as whole, vulnerable people How you can learn to love yourself and become magic in your own life Magic's current favorites — Book: Oh, The Places You'll Go!, Speakers: Brené Brown and Dax Shepard, and Podcasts: Armchair Expert and The Laverne Cox Show More from Magic   His book, Becoming Magic: A Path of Personal Reconstruction   His TEDx Lincoln Square Talk, Soldier of Love: My Survivor Journey   Website: www.thesoldieroflove.us (When you sign up for the newsletter, you will receive FREE access to the first chapter of Magic's book.)   Instagram: @antuanmagicraimone   Twitter: @antuanraimone and @magicantuan   FB: Antuan Magic Raimone   LinkedIN: Antuan Raimone

Big Red Machine - "Phoenix (feat. Fleet Foxes & Anaïs Mitchell)" from the 2021 album How Long Do You Think It's Gonna Last? on 37d03d. Last month, The National's Aaron Dessner and Bon Iver's Justin Vernon released their second album under the name Big Red Machine, titled How Long Do You Think It's Gonna Last?. The album features a heavyweight line-up of guests, including Taylor Swift, Sharon Van Etten, This Is The Kit, Ben Howard, Naeem, Lisa Hannigan, My Brightest Diamond's Shara Nova, and on today's Song of the Day, Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes and Tony Award-winning singer/songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.  "'Phoenix' was one of the last songs we wrote for this record," Dessner says via a press release. "I was thinking about The Band and the Grateful Dead... maybe imagining this Big Red Machine album was some version of The Last Waltz. Justin first heard it while driving and immediately the chorus melody came into his head. I shared the sketch with Robin Pecknold, who I've been a fan of forever and who I'd been dreaming would join us on this record. Robin wrote the verses and pre chorus as a kind of dialogue with Justin, recalling a conversation they once had backstage in Phoenix. Later Anais wrote words to the chorus and The Westerlies added their magic to the instrumental. JT Bates rumbles around in rare form on the drums on this song. I think it's what I always imagined Big Red Machine would sound like." Pecknold adds, “It was a high, high honor to work on this song, and beyond that it was a really interesting creative challenge. Justin's vocals and the beautiful chorus were already in place before I got my hands on it, so I felt my job melodically and lyrically was to set his entrance up in the best possible way. I felt like a pilgrim putting questions to an elusive sage, not needing clear answers, but happy for the chance to ask.” Read the full post on KEXP.org Support the show: https://www.kexp.org/donate See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

It's always a delight chatting with Kaitlyn Dever, but it was especially exciting to finally welcome her to Collider Ladies Night! Dever is currently celebrating the release of Dear Evan Hansen this weekend, but she's had an especially exciting and very busy journey to this highly anticipated film. The movie is the big screen adaptation of the Tony Award winning musical that sees Ben Platt returning to the title role. Evan Hansen is a high school student struggling with anxiety. His therapist suggests he write letters to himself, but one day, a troubled, school outcast named Connor (Colton Ryan) takes one of those personal and very private letters. Soon after, Connor takes his own life and when Connor's mother (Amy Adams) finds Evan's letter, she assumes Connor wrote it to Evan and that they were close friends. Evan plays along and perpetuates the lie in an attempt to ease her pain, and do the same for Connor's sister, Zoe (Dever), as well. During our Collider Ladies Night conversation, Dever took some time to revisit the beginnings of her career and offer some insight into how her hopes and expectations for “making it” in the industry have changed. Check out this edition of Ladies Night to hear all about some of her earliest auditions, including Justified, what it was like working with Kathryn Bigelow on Detroit, what made Ben Platt a standout scene partner on Dear Evan Hansen and loads more!

When hard times hit, the show must still go on for all of us. But as Drama League board president and Broadway HD CEO Bonnie Comley explains, even when the lights are dark, critical progress can be made. As Broadway's 41 theaters begin coming back to life in New York City, the three-time Tony Award-winning producer takes us through how the 18-month pandemic closure created an opportunity for the $16 billion industry to reimagine itself. At core are new efforts to expand and broaden the customer base, in part through a fuller embrace of digital engagement. Digital capture and streaming, Comley says, can help welcome new audiences and expand touchpoints for each show's brand in unique ways. “Streaming theater is not a replacement for theater,” she says. “It is an additive.”Read a transcript of this interview at: mastersofscale.comSubscribe to the Masters of Scale weekly newsletter at http://eepurl.com/dlirtXSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
