Tanya Young Williams: Bishop Charles Blake Reveals Mega Churches Political Impact and Social Responsibilities
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Los Angeles is known around the world as home to the rich and famous. Professional sports fans have no shortage of local teams to cheer on and shoppers enjoy one of the most famous streets in the world, Rodeo Drive, to flex their credit card muscle. The beaches are filled with beautiful people with beautiful bodies and eclectic characters strolling the boardwalks. Los Angeles has become a must stop for presidential candidates looking to raise millions while rubbing elbows with A-List celebrities and deep pocket supporters. In fact, over 27 million visitors stop through Los Angeles annually. Very often, on the list of "things to do" is the name "West Angeles Church of God is Christ."

Robert Bullen: Goodman's Joyous Crowns Gets Your Spirits Singing
Huffington Post - over 4 years
"Does anyone still wear a hat?" bellows the embittered Joanne, as memorably originated by Elaine Stritch in the 1970 musical Company. Why, yes. Yes, they do. And they're mighty proud of it, too. Inspired by Michael Cunningham and Craig Marberry's 2000 book that explores the rich history black women have with wearing ornate church hats, playwright Regina Taylor has crafted a joyful, colorful celebration with Crowns, which is receiving its 10-year anniversary production at the Goodman, directed by Taylor. Just like the Ephron's Love, Loss, and What I Wore, the relationship many women have with clothing and accessories is closely tied to memories and emotions. And, let's not lie, there's a bit of superficial joy to wearing a flattering item -- be it a dress, a pair of heels or a hat. Pride in appearance isn't necessarily a sin. To introduce us to this world of hat fetishists, we have Yolanda (Marketta P. Wilder, a fierce young actress making a bold Chicago theatre ...

Regina Weinreich: Clybourne Park on Broadway: There Goes the Neighborhood
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Now on Broadway at the Walter Kerr Theater after a stunning debut two years ago, Bruce Norris biting Pulitzer Prize winning drama Clybourne Park begins in 1959 with a couple leaving their Chicago home after many years. Under Pam MacKinnon's expert direction, Russ (Frank Wood) sits in a lounger eating Neapolitan; his wife Bev (Christina Kirk) debates the geographic origin of this ice cream's name, an agreeable three-tier assemblage of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. The colors, while distinct white, brown, and pink, work well together. This savvy play, about race and our unease with the matter, suggests we might do the same, live side by side, and illustrates how we don't, neither in the mid-century nor today. Helping Bev pack up the house is Francine (Crystal A. Dickinson), the maid, who does not want the chafing dish Bev insists she take. When her husband Albert (Damon Gupton) picks her up, Bev has not let up on her annoying pushing. Fed up, Albert stops her patronizing ...
