Jennifer Ashley Tepper Dazzles Again With 'The Untold Stories Of Broadway'
Huffington Post - 3 months
If the walls of Broadway's fabled theatres could talk, they'd tell amazing stories. And historian Jennifer Ashley Tepper shares them with flair. As she never tires of pointing out, the physical setting of a theatre--everything from modern sounds and lights to a creaking infrastructure dating back decades--can play as much of a role in shaping productions as the actors onstage. There may be no better example than the surreal opening night of "Once in a Lifetime," a comedy written by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, which debuted at the Music Box Theatre in 1930. As the show began the cast realized that something was gravely wrong. Surefire laugh lines were falling flat and the audience was silent. It hadn't heard one word. In his memoir, "Act One," Hart remembered looking wildly toward Kaufman to see what was amiss, and the panic ended only when a voice in the balcony rang out: "It's the fans--turn off the fans!" In the excitement of opening night, an electrician forgot to shut them ...

Lou Reed 1942-2013
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I interviewed Lou Reed in spring of 2003 in conjunction with the release of his latest album, The Raven. A hero of mine since childhood, our chat did not start out well. As I entered his office in Soho, he greeted me with a look combining contempt and outright revulsion: "Oh you little yuppie punk, please say something stupid so I can throw your ass outta my office," it seemed to say. Happily, Reed warmed up over the next two hours and we had a terrific chat about many things, recorded below. Several months later, I attended his sold-out concert at the Wiltern in L.A. Backstage, I shook his hand and told him how much I enjoyed the show.. He managed a smile, patted my shoulder, and said "Nice work." RIP Lou, and thanks for it all. Lou Reed has been one of rock music's most profound innovators since bursting onto the New York club scene in the mid-'60s with his now-legendary band, The Velvet Underground. Discovered and supported by Andy Warhol, the Velvets, which also featured Jo ...

Michael Giltz: Theater: Gore Vidal's 'The Best Man' -- A Second, Better Look
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Gore Vidal's The Best Man *** out of *** Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre It's common courtesy not to speak ill of the dead. Happily, a return to Gore Vidal's sturdy old political drama The Best Man stirs no nasty impulse. With a clutch of new cast members who are the equal or even better than their predecessors and James Earl Jones in fighting trim, it's an amiable night of the theater that has moved up a notch in my estimation. (Here's a link to my original review on April 2.) This show, which opened on Broadway in March of 1960 and was set at the presidential convention in Philly that same year, shows two candidates going at each other to gain advantage in a deadlocked vote where neither one has enough support to gain their party's nomination. John Larroquette, that increasingly valuable stage actor, is the intellectual Easterner. John Stamos is the wily, good-looking, more conservative plain talker who has dug up dirt on Larroquette's nervous breakdown and wants to smear hi ...

NEW YORK — Cybill Shepherd, John Stamos, Kristin Davis and Elizabeth Ashley are set to get political – they're joining the cast of "Gore Vidal's The Best Man."

John Farr: The Best Movies Afloat by Farr
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
This weekend marks the centennial of the Titanic disaster, an event that's been recreated in countless films, including the 1997 James Cameron epic that's back in theaters. (Personally I never much cared for the film in two dimensions; I doubt I'll like it more in three. And yes, I know I'm in the minority on this.) Regardless, when you consider all the movies where boats of various sizes figure in the plot, you discover more riches than the Titanic could ever have carried. In fact, for the purposes of this piece, I'm consciously omitting all military/war films, since they would comprise (at least) one article all on their own. I'm also avoiding pirate movies for the same reason. That leaves ocean liner pictures, and films where smaller boats play a role. I've always appreciated how movies set on liners recreate a bygone era when travel could be calm and civilized. Other boat films may take us on-board a luxurious yacht, or show man pitted against the biggest and cru ...
