I think that this sequel is a good movie to watch. It is frightening and has a lot of scenes that make you jump. I haven't seen the first one but after watching this, I think I should have watched it and it will be as good as this one.
such low key, warm, psychedelic cinematography (and Naomi Watts). beautiful film.
The opportunity to work with this event, as a volunteer behind the scenes and as a newly minted 69 year-old actress, has led to a passion in me for the stage. I have been cast as Abby Brewster in Arsenic and Old Lace. We open on Friday in Wake Forest-- thank you to Ashley Popio for lighting the fire in my heart to take on such a demanding, and delightful, role!
How lucky we are to have so much talent and such wonderful performances in Durham; keep it up gang - it just gets better and better!!
I appreciate this honest and realistic assessment of WTF 2016, and I applaud the bravery and audacity of Ashley Popio and all of the WTF collaborators for putting on the festival knowing that it was never going to be perfect. I am so glad we did not wait. I am so glad we did not try to find the right time. I am so glad we went for it.
Succeed or fail, Popio and all the women and allies who made WTF happen deserve major kudos. This has been long overdue and sorely needed in our theatrical community -- and beyond. Looking forward to seeing its continued growth and strength.
I loved this performance. It was dark, very funny and incredibly entertaining.
Well written and I am sure she is smiling down on all of you at PRC. I know you all will miss her always.
I'm reading this again after seeing it almost 5 months ago. Our new Quail Ridge Books is open at North Hills. It is large, eclectic, and colorful. The children's section is magical and there is an upstairs that includes books, magazines, a reading nook, and a great view of the first floor. I never would have imagined 5 years ago that I would own a bookshop, especially one that was opened and lovingly kept by a rockstar like Nancy. Now I have put my stamp on it, under hers.
There are nuances of the former store there: the fireplace and comfy chairs, book club meetings, the "paperback boat," special sections that include Southern writers and NC writers, and the framed author photos in the bathrooms. Of course we have a beautiful picture of Nancy prominently placed, as she should be.
It's a different store with a different vibe. But the booksellers are the same genuinely kind people you always knew. The same great literature is shelved. We continue to present wonderful authors, poets, and town hall guests.
If you haven't already, I hope you will come in to see us. Bring your coffee in and have a seat, for as long as you like.
Thanks RobU. This review ran online only.
Great review! Since it was out in previous paper, how do we get this in print? Possible to order it?
This show is dreadful. I watched clips of the London production which lacked the wonderful sets in the Australian production. Overall, the story and music are dire. None of the songs have the lasting impact of Phantom of the Opera. It's as if everything that worked before was annihilated.
Awesome summation of the beauty and skill surrounding this tap festival! Great Job Dan!
A very good review that captures the movie's strengths (few) and weaknesses (many). The entire movie is summarized by "a lack of narrative tension and ... flatness of the characters." I cannot understand the rave reviews the movie is getting elsewhere.
Williamstown Theatre Festival also has the abbreviation WTF...and it's one of the most well-known and respected theatre festivals in the country. Don't go by abbreviations only.
The shows haven't been announced yet. As the post says, those who can't make it to Raleigh that day can audition online. We noted their embrace of the WTF moniker in the original story linked here. It doesn't mean the plays are "adult," it's just funny. There is no F-bomb except an implicit one. The kids will be OK.
Given the very adult connotations revealed when using the abbreviation of this festival (did no one notice the rather obvious F-bomb??!!) would I be right in thinking that the plays under consideration are only appropriate for adults? The notice says that they are also auditioning children, but would these be roles for children within adult shows or are some children's shows included in this festival? Can we get a list of shows to be included? Finally, why are auditions being held on a day when so many are away on vacations for the three-day holiday weekend? If we can't make it on this Saturday are we just out of luck?
To whomever disliked my comment. I dislike your support of erasing people of color.
