A community theater that attracts more attention for what's happening off-stage than on-stage is a community theater in turmoil.
For most of the spring and summer, the Civic, as a rebranding effort now labels the venerable theater, dealt with sexual harassment allegations against the theater's artistic director and was embroiled in a dispute with a group of volunteers. Along the way, the theater's popular artistic director, Greg Miller, was let go, adding another layer of unrest. The summer show was canceled and ticket sales for initial shows in the season have lagged. Then, the Civic had to go to the City Council and ask for an $80,000 funding advance to meet expenses.
The show must go on, however, and somehow the Civic righted the ship enough to launch the season with the musical "Urinetown" in September. Since then, the Civic has carried a normal main stage schedule, thanks to guest directors, fresh talent, a dedicated staff and a cohort of returning and new volunteer..
Στις 21 Δεκεμβρίου του 1967, η ταινία «The Graduate» κάνει πρεμιέρα σε δύο αίθουσες στη Νέα Υόρκη: Στο Coronet στη Third Avenue και στο Lincoln Art Theater στο Broadway.
Το φιλμ, βασισμένο στη νουβέλα του CharlesWebb του 1963, βασιζόταν σε μια απλή υπόθεση: Όπως εξήγησε ο σεναριογράφος, «αυτό το παιδί αποφοίτησε από το κολέγιο, έχει μια σχέση με την καλύτερη φίλη των γονιών του και στη συνέχεια ερωτεύεται την κόρη της». Και πρόσθεσε ότι «ήταν ό,τι καλύτερο είχε ακούσει».
Με άλλα λόγια, «Ο Πρωτάρης» ήταν μια ανησυχητική εξερεύνηση του τι σήμαινε να είσαι νεαρός και άβγαλτος σε μια εποχή εξαιρετικής σύγχυσης και αναστάτωσης. Η ταινία έγινε χιτ: Ο New Yorker το χαρακτήρισε «η μεγαλύτερη επιτυχία στην ιστορία των ταινιών», ενώ το The Saturday Review έγραψε ότι ήταν «όχι απλώς μια επιτυχία, έχει γίνει ένα φαινόμενο». Οι εισπράξεις έφτασαν τα $35 εκατ. κατά τους πρώτους έξι μήνες που προβαλλόταν, ενώ αντίθετα κόστισε μόλις τρία εκατομμύρια για να γυριστεί, και έγινε η υψηλότερη εισπρακτικήεπ..

The Broadway song of the year in the Broadway musical of the year is by David Yazbek, and it is sung to enthralling effect by Katrina Lenk, as an Israeli woman whose chances for happiness are passing her by, in "The Band's Visit." "And we dance with them on a jasmine-scented wind," Lenk sings in this sultry memory song, about the romance of movies. And darned if we don't all want to get up and dance forever with her.
In a venerable summer theater festival in the West Virginia panhandle, the Contemporary American Theater Festival, I encountered Eleanor Burgess' barnburner of a play, which exposes the racial and generational fissures on an Ivy League campus. A white politically liberal professor and a student of color face off over the student's paper about slavery and the Revolutionary War, in one of the best plays I've..
Cinemark's new Movie Club scores you a slight discount on tickets.
Cinemark Movie theaters are hurting. According to a late-August Los Angeles Times story, this summer's box office hit a 25-year-low, while theater chain stocks have taken a beating.
Could a Netflix-style subscription service come to the rescue? At least three are trying: Movie Club, MoviePass and Sinemia. Although they share same basic promise -- discounted ticket prices -- they take very different approaches to the movie theater pass model. Let's take a look at what each service offers and see which one -- if any -- deserves your dollars.
Cinemark Movie ClubPrice: $8.99 per month
What you get: One ticket per month; 20 percent off concessions; additional tickets for $8.99 each; unused tickets can roll over
Limitations: Cinemark theaters only; 2D movies only
Summary: Announced earlier in December by theater chain Cinemark, Movie Club offers little compared with MoviePass and Sinemia. You're basically..
Designer and animator Jamie Tan (Film/Video BFA 15) started baking cakes and fancy French pastries as a meditative practice to help her balance the 20 credit semesters she was taking as a student at CalArts.
Tan says the baking process and more specifically, “the relationship between textures, flavors, and memory and feeling” naturally started informing her art practice.
One of Tan’s earliest projects at CalArts, “Anatta,” included hand-drawn animations projected through gelatin. “Since then,” she said, “I’ve created a visual language between my art and my cakes, as the processes have become very much intertwined.”
Her experimental approach interested renowned artist Adrián Villar Rojas, who happened to be in search of a local cake artist to help with his most recent exhibition “The Theater of Disappearance,” now on view at the Geffen Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.
The environmental site-specific installation is a culmination of a three-part global project that questions ou..
