    Please end the mask theater now”.. Senator Rand Paul shared video Wednesday of CDC Director Rochelle Walensky announcing that new data suggests vaccinated and recovered people do not carry Covid-19. Paul directed his comments at White House chief medical advisor Anthony Fauci, writing “paging Dr Fauci: please end the mask theater now that cdc admits evidence that the vaccinated do not carry the virus.” In a further post, Paul also shared a study examining T cell responses in people who have recovered from Covid-19. “T cell immunity after natural infection shown to include variants,” Paul, who is also a physician,...

    Just one night after lambasting members of the GOP for their “sociopathic” responses to the recent shootings in Atlanta and Boulder, Seth Meyers went after them again — this time denouncing their refusal to wear masks. “The modern conservative movement seems concerned above all else with preserving their solemn right to be dicks to everyone else around them,” Meyers said, kicking off Thursday’s Late Night. “They like to say facts don’t care about your feelings until you hurt their feelings by politely asking them to wear a mask, or stop using racist slurs, and they meltdown like they’re being hobbled...

    During Wednesday’s CNN “New Day,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) sounded off on his recent back and forth with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) over the “theater” used by both sides of the aisle in reaction to the Boulder, CO shooting. Blumenthal said the GOP is engaging in “theater” by “offering thoughts and prayers and then blocking real action that can save lives” as they push back on stricter gun laws. He emphasized the need for “federal action” to prevent future gun violence.

    "At this point," Ingraham said later in the segment, "It’s pretty much beyond obvious that if you had COVID, you’re extremely unlikely to get it again — even Fauci knows it’s impossible to argue against the evidence on this point … The fact is, we’re approaching herd immunity in the United States. Fauci knows this and knows there’s no data to counter the mountain of evidence Senator Paul ... threw at him." Fauci’s new favorite talking point, the host said, is the rise of several coronavirus variants, specifically one that was discovered in the U.K. Ingraham noted that the U.K....

    Tamara Wilhite: What led you to create Stage Right? Robert Cooperman: I became a little tired of seeing characters with conservative points of view depicted as bumpkins and ignorant slobs (you know, the “clingers” that our former president referred to). What’s more, I saw a very obvious worldview in the arts that was leftist in nature and omnipresent in many plays. ... I’ve read play after play where the characters are miserable, crazy, or both, and we the audience are supposed to find something appealing about them and sympathize. I’m looking for a theatre universe where we have real heroes...

    Nationwide Covid surges and a disappointingly slow vaccine rollout notwithstanding, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci reiterated over the weekend his belief that live theater venues could reopen during fall 2021. Participating in a virtual conference held Saturday by the Association of Performing Arts Professionals, Fauci said that, depending on the vaccine rollout, the reopening of live venues “will occur some time in the fall of 2021.” By the “early to mid-fall,” the infectious disease expert said, “you can have people feeling safe performing onstage as well as people in the audience.

    It might be a year or longer before we're able to safely go to theaters again, infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci told actor Jennifer Garner in a recent Instagram Live conversation. "When are we going to be able to sit in a theater and watch our favorite performers up on stage again?" Garner asked Dr. Fauci, who replied, "I think it's going to be a combination of a vaccine that has been around for almost a year and good public health measures." Fauci admits that there are still a lot of variables, including the strength of the vaccine. You...

    U.S. Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the Broadway League renewed the call for dedicated federal funding for Broadway and other New York live venues today, reiterating the push for the $10 billion bipartisan Save Our Stages campaign. “Today we are fighting hard to keep stages alive, stories told and shows going on,” Schumer said at an outdoor press conference in New York’s theater district near the TKTS Booth. The senator joked that he would demand “a Lion King’s share of federal relief” for Broadway. Citing the $15 billion contributed by Broadway to New York’s economy last year, the 100,000...

  • Actors – The Lowest Social Class In Ancient Rome

    ancient-romans ^ | April 7, 2020 | styrman
    Unlike in the progressive modern world where one can become a part of the high-society and idolized by mindless plebs simply by the merit of being a (famous) actor, the ancient Romans had the exact opposite stance. Actors in the Roman world were considered the lowest of the low, being on roughly the same social status as slaves. That the Romans had a low opinion on actors should not come as a surprise, as actors by definition, act. In a society where honesty, merit, personal accomplishments and pursuit of civic virtue were in high regard, it is thus understandable that...

    As protest and rallies against racial injustice and the killing of Black lives continue, there is a seismic shift happening in the country as the civic unrest is shining a blinding light on systemic racism against Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) — and the world of theater is the latest to get that spotlight. An open letter addressed to “White American Theater” was published on Monday demanding change. The letter was filled with ugly truths that those who have worked in the theater industry have experienced for decades. Among the 300 BIPOCs who signed the letter were Lin-Manuel...

Keith Aldridge, who owns Canterbury Village, said there were plans in place to make the drive-in safe and socially distanced. “We were limiting the amount of cars. Every car would get a 20-by-20 spot. You could listen to the movie on your FM radio and we decided against trying to do concessions,"...

    CLERMONT COUNTY, Ohio (FOX19) - A local drive-in movie theater is helping high-school seniors have a memorable moment despite limitations imposed due to the coronavirus. Starlite Drive-In in Amelia could have as many as 20 graduations in the next couple of months, according to the venue’s owners. "I saw all these kids, even kids that worked at the drive-in, aren't going to have a graduation this year and I thought that maybe some schools were having that same problem and this would be a good solution," said Jeff Groner, who owns the theater with his parents. According to Groner, the...

    NYT Theater ^ | Apr 2020 | Ben Brantley
    I had admired Mr. Dennehy — who died on Wednesday, at 81 — as a smart, risk-taking and undersung actor onstage and onscreen. He was a heartbreakingly sensitive lout as the parvenu Lopakhin — a brute with a touch of the poet — in Peter Brook’s production of Chekhov’s “The Cherry Orchard” (1988) at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. His performance as the serial murderer John Wayne Gacy in the 1992 television film “To Catch a Killer” was a penetratingly human portrait of a monster, and it haunted my nightmares for a long time. But nothing I had seen Mr....

    In the wake of the coronavirus, the performing arts have the chance to come back stronger than ever. Here's how. Amid the furor over the $25 million bailout of the Kennedy Center and their subsequent mass firings, one thing has become abundantly clear. The Wuhan virus is going to devastate performing arts organizations all over the country. Between the lack of ticket sales during the shut down, and lower sales and donations in the woeful economic aftermath, it is likely that many wonÂ’t survive.Non-profit performing arts organizations, which is pretty much all of them, operate on razor-thin budgets as it...
