Following intermission comes the incredibly popular live-action-version of A Charlie Brown Christmas and its evergreen jazz score by Vince Guaraldi. In Concert - A Charlie Brown Christmas. SFSymphony "I wasn't expecting this!" said Ruthie. "I haven't done a concert in the City yet and wasn't planning on an additional one for this year. But a couple of months ago when my agent said, 'How would you like to sing with the San Francisco Symphony?' - my answer was a great big capital Y--'YES!' "Everybody loves Christmas music - but I really love Christmas music. Maybe it's because I have a multi-cultural background and have lived in many parts of the country.

On the Culture Front: Kings of War, Wilderness and more
Huffington Post - 3 months
Regina Spektor has a knack for turning simple chord progressions into ethereal expressions of joy, longing and sadness - sometimes all three in the same breadth. Her intonation alternates between whimsy and passion. This was all on display at her recent Town Hall show when she took the stage with a string quartet plus bass and drums. The instrumentation reveals her style of folk baroque. Sitting at the piano for nearly the entire 90-minute set, she was radiant yet shy. She was visibly nervous too. It was her first show in a few years, and she drank a lot of water between each song leaving space in the air for heckles. Most were kind words of support and the sole negative one drew a sharp backlash from adoring fans. That's the thing about her music: it invites you in so graciously and sincerely that it feels improper not to respond in kind. Impropriety is the lifeblood of Nick Kroll and John Mulaney's "Oh, Hello," a savage sendup of growing old and out-of-touch but still persisting. ...

Taco Trucks And Burner Phones: Staring Into The Abyss Of Trump Surrogates
Huffington Post - 6 months
The mean and increasingly incoherent presidential campaign of Donald Trump is oddly enhanced (in entertainment if not electoral terms) by the spectacle of his surrogates on cable news shows. The trouble for them is they can't be sure he won't change his story from one hour to the next. I half expect him to enter a studio mid-interview like Richard III and denounce one of his hapless advocates. They are lured by vanity and ambition into the treacherous waters of his impulse-driven campaign. Marco Gutierrez, founder of Latinos for Trump, warned MSNBC's Joy Reid on September 1 that "Mexico has a very dominant culture.... If you don't do something about it, you're going to have taco trucks on every corner." This absurd stereotype set off a mayhem of mockery by people who consider taco trucks a fine idea. Pastor Mark Burns of South Carolina, who was a speaker (or shouter) at the Republican National Convention, recently contributed to the political discourse by tweeting a cartoon o ...

Forsooth! Joy for Richard III as Leicester shock world
Yahoo News - 10 months
By Ossian Shine LONDON (Reuters) - There was no shortage of superlatives on Tuesday after little Leicester City were crowned champions of the world's richest soccer league. A Bangkok monk said the power of Buddhism had lifted the Thai-owned club to victory, while some fans closer to home gave thanks to King Richard III, saying his reinterment in Leicester last year had sparked the magic. In a soon-to-be-published book "King Power", which also happens to be the name of the group that owns the soccer club, a re-imagined Richard III offers his Middle English analysis of Leicester's rise to glory under manager Claudio Ranieri.

<i>The 5th Wave</i> Inspires 11th Commandment: Thou Shall Not Make Crappy Films
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Lately, if you feel unworthy because God has given you just too good a life . . . just too much joy . . . and your hair shirt is at the cleaners, you can do your penance watching J Blakeson's The 5th Wave. Yes, here's yet another dystopian teen mini-epic based on yet another acclaimed YA title, this one by Rick Yancey. USA Today called the tome "a modern sci-fi masterpiece." Add Amazon Best Book of the Year to The 5th Wave's plaudits. Yet the screenplay it inspired, the one fashioned by Susannah (Erin Brockovich) Grant, Akiva I, Robot) Goldsman, and Jeff (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) Pinkner, might best be described as The Ennui Games or first-class teen drivel. The tales begins with Cassie Sullivan (Chloë Grace Moretz), a lone, adolescent lass crossing a deserted roadway with a rifle in hand. She heads into a ransacked grocery store searching for any source of protein. While stuffing some goodies into her knapsack, she hears a voice from behind a door yelling for help. Cassie ...

Equality, Diversity, Inclusion: The Social Values of Shakespeare
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The great British actor Simon Callow launched the British Council and the GREAT Britain campaign's 400th anniversary Shakespeare celebrations on Twelfth Night by tweeting the first item using the hashtag #PlayYourPart. This global digital campaign asks social media users to participate and tweet their favorite Shakespeare moments. Very quickly others, such as William Shatner, Sir Richard Branson and Hugh Bonneville, joined in. The game was afoot and, two weeks later, it seems that everyone wants to have their say about Shakespeare with the site exceeding 130 million hits.   But it was the choice of the initiating Shakespeare quote which set the tenor for this yearlong, worldwide commemoration of Shakespeare's death. Turning to the play Twelfth Night, Callow reminds us of Shakespeare's great words of tolerance and compassion:   "In nature there's no blemish but the mind. None can be called deformed but the unkind."   In a week in which the USA, and the world, remembers the vision o ...

FACE IT: A View From the Audience
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The most talked about new production on Broadway -- no, I haven't forgotten Hamilton, but it's been up for five months -- is A View From The Bridge , the audacious and pared-down version of the Arthur Miller play. Starring Mark Strong, there are many notable things about this version, including the bare feet to go along with the bare bones, and the use of only one real prop. And yes, there will be blood. Director Ivo Van Hove (from Belgium and arguably the world's hottest stage director) has also placed chunks of the audience on the sides of the stage. It is framed to resemble a boxing match, so the idea of fans watching in the round makes some sense. Though, while those fans would be standing and cheering, these dare not make a move, cough, or unwrap a candy. The actor most affected by this approach is Michael Gould, the Brit (they are all Brits, coming with the production from London) who both narrates the play as a Greek chorus of sorts, and occasionally moves into the action i ...
