Forced to Provide Service With a Smile
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Not everyone has a desk job. Some people wait tables, clean bathrooms, work as nannies, or push drink carts through an airplane's passenger cabin. Others may be adjunct professors, nurses, bus drivers, or garbagemen. Each and every service job is accompanied by occupational hazards that the general public blithely ignores. And yet, the working class provides plenty of material for playwrights and screenwriters. From bus drivers like Ralph Kramden (The Honeymooners) to teachers like Jean Brodie (The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie); candy stripers, blue collar (and no collar) workers find a place in our culture. Bay area audiences recently attended the American premiere of Penelope Skinner's dramedy, Fred's Diner, at the Magic Theatre and Marisa Wegrzyn's poignant look at exhausted flight attendants in the Aurora Theatre Company's production of Mud Blue Sky. Several years ago, TheatreWorks Silicon Valley staged Joan Holden's adaptation of Barbara Ehrenreich's nonfiction ...

Teresa S. Porter: So You're Feeling Too Fat to Be Photographed...
The Huffington Post - about 3 years
Listen. I hear you. You're a few pounds heavier than you like (or a 100 lbs heavier than you like). I completely understand how you feel. I get that same blah feeling about myself when I think about booking new head shots or long overdue pictures of me and Justin. Precious, I even picked a career that has me permanently behind the camera rather than in front of it. Seeing myself in pictures actually produces the faintest sick feeling in my stomach. Isn't it amazing we can see the beauty in our best friends, sisters, mothers, and aunts without the slightest thought to their flaws... but can obsess for hours on our own imperfections? We fixate on our flaws to the point we shirk at any documentation that our round faces and curvy bodies ever walked the earth. No pictures to show how we LOVE, how we laugh, how we are treasured by our families. How is it possible that a double chin can overpower the beauty of a mother cuddling her child? How does arm fat distract from the perfect s ...

MOVIES THIS WEEK

A fine quartet of films on television this week owe their beginnings to the Broadway stage. The screen version of YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU (1938), the Kaufman-Hart Pulitzer Prize winner, was right up the alley of Frank Capra. Hollywood had a ready-made cast for this amusing piece of Americana about a stuffy rich clan and an eccentric one: James

Review/Dance; Honoring A Master Of Movement On the Screen
NYTimes - almost 23 years
It is impossible to think of Hollywood's best musicals of the 1950's without the warm human insight that Michael Kidd poured into those films through his choreography. The Kidd touch was always recognizable. It could be seen in the growing compatibility between Cyd Charisse and Fred Astaire as they strolled through Central Park, or when Danny Kaye,

LEAD: NOT JUST A MOVIE, HERBERT Ross's film ''Dancers'' - starring Mikhail Baryshnikov - is a fable for our time. Critics across the board have hated it. Thirteen-year-old girls, especially the thousands who hang Baryshnikov posters on their bedroom walls, will love it. As they say in the business, the camera likes him. NOT JUST A MOVIE, HERBERT

STAGE: 'SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS'
NYTimes - over 34 years
SO how does one begin to describe ''Seven Brides for Seven Brothers,'' the threadbare touring package that mistakenly unpacked on Broadway last night? Perhaps it's fitting to start with the brothers themselves. There are indeed seven of them - all singing, all dancing - but what in heaven's name, one wonders, has happened to their hair? On close

STYLIZED, OFFBEAT 'PENNIES FROM HEAVEN'

THE place is Chicago and the time is 1934, the year of the Chicago World's Fair that celebrated ''a century of progress,'' though the country was then in the midst of the greatest economic depression it had ever known. Arthur (Steve Martin), a young man who frequently wears a cartoonlike grin spread across a benignly empty countenance, is an

  • 2007
    Age 77
    In 2007, a dance instructor by the name of Fredric Brame was found to have been posing as Tommy Rall since the late 1960s.
    More Details Hide Details His biographies, resumes, and playbills all support that Brame was Fredric Brame aka Tommy Rall by the credits listed. When Rall found out about the masquerade decades later, through a friend of his cousin, he contacted the Montgomery County Sheriff's office. No legal action was taken against Brame since he technically didn't commit a crime. Rall only wanted Brame to stop taking credit for his work and if he continued or did it again a lawsuit would be filed. Features: Short Subjects:
