Amazon's <i>Good Girls Revolt</i>: These Girls Want To Write? Good Lord! What Will They Want Next?
Huffington Post - 4 months
In contrast to Vietnam War or Civil Rights protestors, the 1960s fighters in the women's movement first had to convince some people there even was a problem. The clueless crowd in the new Amazon Prime series Good Girls Revolt, which drops Friday, includes the editors of a national news magazine. In the final moments of the '60s, December 1969, they can't imagine why the women on their staff are suddenly no longer content being anonymous researchers. These women want a chance to write bylined stories. Can you imagine? Based on a real-life legal action brought against Newsweek magazine and chronicled in Lynn Povich's book The Good Girls Revolt, the Amazon Prime series focuses on three women who do decide they want the same shot as the guys. These include career woman Jane Hollander (Anna Camp), free-spirited Patti Robinson (Genevieve Angelson), and the initially mousy Cindy Reston (Erin Drake) (above). They are all enthusiastic contributors to the magazine, w ...

'70s Newsroom Drama 'Good Girls Revolt' Premiering On Amazon
Huffington Post - 5 months
Once upon a time, white men ruled the newsroom. While traditional media still has a long way to go in reflecting actual diversity, the scene was much grimmer in the 1970s. Women who wanted to report on the news were relegated to lower-rung researcher positions, while their male counterparts were the ones to actually put the words together — and get the coveted bylines.  Amazon’s “Good Girls Revolt,” the pilot of which streamed on Amazon in late 2015, finally has a full season, and a trailer to go along with it. The story is inspired by the real-life women of Newsweek, who, along with her co-workers, sued their bosses for discrimination in hiring and promotion. Watch it above — there’s indignation, sex, typewriters, delicious period clothing, Joy Bryant, Anna Camp, Grace Gummer in a weird wig, and, of course, a quick hit of girl power.  Whether “Good Girls” will veer too far into the melodramatic remains to be seen; we’ll have to keep watching to see if it mak ...

'Good Girls Revolt' Is A Promising Portrait Of A Newsroom In Flux
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The workplace is a fertile ground for television. The forced interaction of dissimilar people, the built-in hierarchies, and the soul-deadening florescent lighting all make for a potent playground for screenwriters and showrunners. "The Office," in both its U.K. and U.S. iterations, captured the ennui -- and the secret heart -- of dreary middle management. "Party Down" gave us delightful slackers made to don bow ties in the name of making rent. "Mad Men" gave us, well, "Mad Men," and all its delectable period costuming and quiet drama. One new workplace-driven show picks up, in a sense, just as the aforementioned AMC drama leaves us with Don Draper and a bottle of Coke. The pilot episode of "Good Girls Revolt," an Amazon Prime original, follows the grind of a '70s-era newsroom. There, the celebrated -- and all male -- reporters get praise from the public and higher-ups, while the female "researchers" do the dirty work of journalism without ever seeing their bylines grace ...

Why We Made "Good Girls Revolt": For Past and Future Generations of Women
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The day I went for my interview at the New York Times, I was 24, and not nervous enough given that I was in Abe Rosenthal's office, the august and legendary Executive Editor. He was squat and messy, but gave off the indelible aura of enormous power. His first question to me was what I thought of the magazine, for which I was interviewing. Brashly but honestly told him I thought it was a beached whale. He sat back and smiled. "When you start here, don't tighten your suspenders," he said to me. Note that I had no real idea what suspenders were (the things that held up blue jean overalls?). But I smiled, charmed. From that time on I was one of his favorites. Little did I know that there were daggers coming from eyes all around me. Eyes that were on women who had been sidelined because they had just successfully sued the paper for having been discriminated against for decades. Those women had tried and failed to be promoted to positions of relevance at the paper and I was about to prance ...

A Conflicted Fan's Disappointment With American Horror Story's Rape Culture
Huffington Post - over 1 year
"American Horror Story" is now an iconic brand with thrills, chills and excitement that keep audiences on the edge of their seats. However there's one glaring problem in the newest installment of the terrific, yet terrifying, anthology series -- rape. In the first episode, there was a much-talked about scene in which one character, an addict played by Max Greenfield, is raped to death by a wax monster wearing a conical drill strap-on. And in the second episode, which premiered last week, Evan Peters' character has a woman bound to a bedpost with rope while slashing her body with knives as he is having sex with her. Was it scary? Yes. But was it necessary? No. Show creator Ryan Murphy responded to the controversial scene from the first episode, stating that it was a metaphor for dealing with the pain of addiction-- one of the major themes for this season of the show. Neither Murphy, nor series co-creator Brad Falchuk, has yet to comment on the events in the second episode. Given ...

‘Extant’ Season 2 Spoilers: First Look At The Halle Berry ‘Warrior’ Revamp
The Inquisitor - almost 2 years
Extant Season 2 will premiere on CBS this July, and fans of the Halle Berry series will see a very different show on the network. The producers behind the series went in and revamped the sci-fi series in a big way. That revamp becomes clearer after the release of the first trailer for Season 2 by Entertainment Weekly on Thursday. Halle Berry is back as Molly Woods, an astronaut that was impregnated by an alien while on a year-long mission in space. Season 2 showed her pregnancy and focused on the discovery of the alien species on this planet. Season 2 will shift its focus to Molly’s search for her alien offspring. Back in December, TV Line reported that the change in focus for the series would mean a change in the cast. Jeffrey Dean Morgan has joined the cast as a cop who will meet Molly in a “very unlikely way.” Liz Kruger, one of the executive producers of the series, spoke about his role in a recent interview. “[Morgan] plays, essentially, the cop of the future, and we’ ...

Just in Tony Time: Appraising Seven Recent Openings
New York Observer - almost 5 years
Oliver Chris and Tom Edden in 'One Man, Two Guvnors.' (Courtesy Joan Marcus) The 2011-2012 Broadway season—a busy year of 40 new productions—ended last week, with the Tony Awards eligibility cutoff on Thursday, April 26. It went out with neither a bang nor a whimper but with an exhausting rush of last-minute, beat-the-deadline openings: Nine plays or musicals debuted in the last 10 days of elinatgibility. My colleague Rex Reed has reviewed two of them, the pleasant but lazily assembled Gershwin revue Nice Work If You Can Get It, and the also pleasant, even more anemic holy-roller movie adaptation Leap of Faith. Here, brief takes on the seven other shows that rounded out the season: Clybourne Park: The playwright Bruce Norris’ bracing examination of the unshakable, vestigial racism that lurks behind the platitudinous propriety of even well-meaning white liberals, Clybourne Park is both very funny and more than a little damning. It debuted off Broadway at Playwrights Horizons two ...

Fern Siegel: Stage Door: Ghost, The Columnist
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
There is a difference between an apparition and the real thing -- and the same can be said of a Broadway show. It can be rendered cinematically, as in Ghost, The Musical, thereby becoming a musical that thinks it's a movie. The production, based on the 1990 film, dispenses with theatricality or stagecraft, though the magic effects are nifty. Yet a banal score and headache-inducing graphics don't seem to bother the crowds, who clearly came for a recap of the Demi Moore-Patrick Swayze hit. Sam Wheat (Richard Fleeshman), a Wall Street banker with hot artist girlfriend Molly (Caissie Levy), is living the good life in a trendy Brooklyn loft. They are deeply in love; though Sam can't verbalize "I love you," believing his actions speak for themselves. And they will. The two are mugged outside a restaurant, and Sam is killed. Distraught, Molly returns to their loft, where Sam's friend and colleague Carl (Bryce Pinkham), who does a nice turn as a slimy Wall Street broker, is undu ...

The Columnist Review: Joe Alsop, Journalism’s Original Dinosaur
The Faster Times - almost 5 years
He was one of the nation’s most influential newspaper columnists for decades, a cousin of Eleanor Roosevelt, close friends with President Kennedy and even closer with Jackie. But Joseph Alsop is in bed with a young man…in Moscow…in 1954….when we first see him in “The Columnist,” an intelligent and intriguing play by David Auburn. Marking Auburn’s first return to Broadway since his impressive debut with “Proof,” which won both the Pulitzer and the Tony for best play, “The Columnist” is impressive in its own more modest way. Superbly directed by Daniel Sullivan, it features a seven-member dream cast that includes John Lithgow and Boyd Gaines. Unlike “Proof,” a drama Auburn invented about a mathematical genius struggling with mental illness, “The Columnist” is based on a true story, about a different kind of exceptional and conflicted person. Alsop was as famous in his heyday as he is obscure now, 23 years after his death at the age of 78. He is not all that has been forgott ...
