"Searching For Signs" By Katharine "Kat" Kramer
Huffington Post - 3 months
I've had the good fortune of being inspired by and having an opportunity to learn from great performers and artists in the arts and entertainment.One such artist is the Legendary Lily Tomlin, who has become my role model as a performer, and also as a socially-conscious entertainer. Ms. Tomlin is an Ambassador for my international Cinema Series "Kat Kramer's Films That Change The World" and we've worked together on presenting films and documentaries featuring current social issues. My father Stanley Kramer, a maverick filmmaker only made films about controversial subjects or with a "message" and my Godmother was Feminist screen icon Katharine Hepburn, so it's no wonder I strive to work with those artists in our business who are social-justice minded. During the past several years of working closely with Ms. Tomlin on these issues, I was also lucky to perform a special musical Tribute for her that I had created that encompassed her career and social activism. Having the ability to s ...

Comedy Legend Talks Role In Tina Fey's Latest
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
LOS ANGELES -- For a moment, Lily Tomlin was 73 going on 40. In the comedy "Admission," starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, Tomlin plays the young-at-heart seventy-something feminist mother of Fey's university admissions officer. "When we first sat down, I think I'm their age," Tomlin recalled. "They started asking me about `Nine to Five' and `(The Incredible) Shrinking Woman.' Ha ... they were like 10, 12 years old (when I did those things)." Like "Admission," which opens Friday, Tomlin's story is very much that of a daughter and mother. Born Mary Jean Tomlin, the comic and actress has been paying homage to her mom since the start of her career, when she adopted "Lily" as a stage name. "(She) lived to be 91 and was somewhat infirmed by the time she was in her late 80s," Tomlin said. "But she still was funny and wonderful and sweet, so I doubt she felt that old, either." On her current ABC sitcom "Malibu Country," Tomlin plays the swingin' mother of a newly ...

Howard Sherman: The Broadway Scorecard: Two Decades of Drama
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Having previously taken a quantitative look at new Broadway musicals and musical revivals, it was inevitable that I would look at play production on Broadway as well. So as not to bury my lede, let me begin with the list of playwrights who have had five or more productions on Broadway in the last 20 years, new or revival. William Shakespeare (13) Arthur Miller (12) Tennessee Williams (11) Eugene O'Neill (9) Noel Coward, David Mamet, Neil Simon, Tom Stoppard (8) August Wilson (7) Anton Chekhov, David Hare, Terrence McNally, George Bernard Shaw (6) Brian Friel, Richard Greenberg, Donald Margulies, Martin McDonagh (5) What is immediately noticeable among these 17 playwrights? They're all male. There is but a single playwright of color. Eight are not American. Six were dead during the 20 years examined. If anyone is looking for hard and fast data about the lack of diversity among the playwrights getting work on Broadway, this would be Exhibit A. ...

Smoggy Day? Now There's an App for That
Aliso Viejo Patch - over 4 years
Curious about the quality of air you're breathing? Now there's an app for that. The American Lung Association has released a free smartphone application that provides detailed information about air quality wherever you happen to be. "More than 90 percent of people in California live in areas where air pollution continues to threaten their health," said Jane Warner, president and CEO of the American Lung Association in California. "The State of the Air app is especially valuable during the summertime, when ozone pollution peaks in many cities with long, hot, sunny days." The app allows users to enter a ZIP code or use the "geo-locator" function to get up-to-date smog conditions and the next-day air-quality forecast. The app also tracks ozone and particle pollution levels, and alerts users if local air quality is unhealthy for sensitive groups. The app also enables users to share their local air quality via email, Facebook or Twitter. Users can also sign up to receive in ...
