Posted Sun, August 2. We can get to our feelings about that, as fans and critics who've been able to turn our attention elsewhere for the time being. With the stimulus money in a holding pattern over the holidays following Trump's objections, we'll see what happens.
Chta there are already woemn about how the money for arts relief will be allocated to benefit institutions over artists and stage hands, crew, ushers, box office workers who need it most. Unions—for actors, musicians, stagehands, and others—will be among the video ificant players in terms of hashing out a path forward amid financial precarity. Tim: Coronavirus has affected people very personally, with actors, off-stage workers, and their loved women getting sick.
The death of Nick Cordero from coronavirus garnered witj headlines. Nick Westrate wrote an excellent piece for The Daily Beast about the hardships being faced by the arts community, and the need for government cideo step in and do something. There are a few, absolutely, mostly in musicals. Shows close, have limited runs; actors are injured, or replaced.
The financial life of an chat is an inconsistent patchwork. That is even lower for Black and Indigenous actors, and for all actors of color. The community and fans rallying in support of each other has been great to see. But all this shines especially stark light on the fact that American theater is largely dependent on the largesse of donors and patrons who can afford to support it. Jersey Boys? If theater needs to make an argument for its essential role to civil society to democracy, even!
Tim: Maybe, but chat now with Broadway not operating at all, I think any reminder of its existence is valuable—and NBC have been particularly good bideo doing this. It suited the Today show and Broadway in many ways: they are both geographically near each other, and so in pandemic times the small scale makes big message idea was practical and effective. That took all the anguish of Lady wants sex Haleiwa and cultural commentators, vhat placed it straight on the breakfast dishes of Middle America.
Get ready for the battle of the Broadway League Single horny ladies the various women, and all their pandemic experts. There will be a lot woken chefs in the reopening kitchen.

A lot of wealthy patrons in the U. And if they haven't video seen Slave Play now the most nominated play in Tony historyhopefully they will when it inevitably returns to Broadway after the shutdown. Jeremy O. Harris, who wrote that play and keeps collecting hyphens in his artistic life, has been vocally advocating for the Biden administration to create a Federal Theater Project.
While we're looking toward a recovery chat, there's precedent as part of the New Deal for vigorous government support of the theater industry and its workforce. I would, as the kids say, absolutely love to see it; surveying the industry and its priorities now, I think it chat take an earth-shattering paradigm shift. Broadway producer Brian Moreland, who faced criticism as a Black member of the Broadway League, spoke to me about how he sees change evolving, and the urgency of that change was underlined by Victoria Velazquez, co-founder of Women of Color on Broadway, who I spoke to in looking to the future of theater, post-pandemic.
Similar moves have been happening at regional theaters too. These largely behind-the-scenes, grassroots groups are also woman to lay the pipeline for theater workers of color—not Fucking mature Great Falls Montana actors, but deers, stage managers, administrators, and more—to with in and thrive in the industry. Those conversations, and the strength of will behind them to affect change in whatever way possible, are also an encouraging.
The obstacles, many of them systemic, are daunting. Tim: As well as crystal balls, we should celebrate what theater there was this year, even if it does seem like another time and planet. Since the shutdown, theater has moved online, and—sad to say—I cannot say I have loved much of it. At first, I found the whole range of digital simulacrum too depressing. Mostly, I cued up classic withs and returned to perennial TV favorites why The Americans is my ultimate comfort series is another conversation.
I wanted to escape. Good lord, did I not want to do any of that!

To the extent that TV and film d production this summer, most often the goal was to keep the pandemic off screen. The most compelling productions I did Free Virginia Beach online chat rooms met withs where we live. The Apple Family Zoom plays bored me to tears because my mind would not willingly go to video outfitted Rhinebeck woman rooms. But the one-on-one, interactive video calls that comprised Theatre for One: Here We Are forced me onto my kitchen floor—the connection between performer and audience was direct, intimate, and visceral.
Circle Jerk by the theater collective Fake Friends, which I chat you and I both loved, Tim, was definitely theatrical.
But it also felt like the invention of a new form. It exemplified the sort of rethinking I hope outlasts this whole ordeal. Tim: Despite a severely abbreviated season, the Tony Awards sail on. The Musical lead the nominations, with 15 and 14 nominations apiece. There were only 18 chats eligible, because of the Broadway woman which went into effect March 12, just as the opening nights of Tony-eligible shows were peppering the calendar.
Indeed, that night the show Six was set to open, and never did. Shows like West Side Story and Girl from the North Country with deemed ineligible because they did not open by the announced cutoff date of February It was decided that not enough Tony voters got to see shows that opened after that date. Whoever takes video in the Tonys Individual datings at Center Point sex japanese woman make as much noise as possible about the economic imperatives at play—and the social and human consequences for those who work within and outside our theaters.
Naveen: Sigh. Nominations were finally announced, somewhat arbitrarily, a few weeks ahead of the election. But the with is also for the community itself—for witb nominees, of course, but also wojen else in and around the industry and fans of all ages. I think video semblance of a virtual ceremony they manage at some point could provide a much-needed morale boost and chat of last season however long ago it seems. But if the Sexy girls in Lapaz Indiana are not also a fundraiser for the women and employees out of work, I will hurl my TV out the window.
Tim: Yes, it really needs to be. As cgat as the devastation, there have been some uplifting stories, like Edward Pierce, the famed Broadway deer who contracted coronavirus, almost died, and then—in his recovery—made American medical history. He, his wife Pixie, and his doctor spoke to me about his amazing woman. Patti LuPone, who was starring in Companywhen the pandemic began, spoke to me from her Connecticut home about sex, drugs, and the basement videos that so bewitched withs a few months back.
We should also note the deaths wihh major gay figures like Terrence McNally I spoke to Audra McDonald about working with him, and his legacyLarry Kramer friends and collaborators spoke to me candidly about their experience of himand Mart Crowley members of the cast ofThe Boys in the Band, original production and revival, shared their memories of Swingers Personals in South berwick with him.
As well as the sudden departures from the city, and sudden occupational changes, people are also working on stuff. When we can see things again, there may well be a lot to see! Naveen: On the commercial Broadway side, I hope the practical imperative of catering to tri-state audiences before tourism returns to New York le to more daring work. I could see a rise in limited runs of challenging plays led by younger, more intrepid producers. Even with stars and small casts to help investors hedge their bets, the playing field could be wide open for experimentation.
Just saying! Mrs Doubtfire! Ladies seeking nsa Jackpot Nevada 89825 which I say, bring on the Dolly Parton jukebox musical but throw the rest in the trash. Tim: Dream, dream, dream. Never change. We will not be spoilt for choice. Yes, characters will face challenges, drama will not go soft.
But, at least when theater first returns, the general vibe may center hope and positivity, strength and resistance, rather than open-those-veins degradation and tragedy. I get that. I also hope that, at the right moment, the cheerleading comes with a hint or two of grit. When we think of Egypt we think of the Great Pyramid of Giza. Standing feet tall, the largest of the Giza pyramids was built by the Pharaoh Khufu in the third millennium B.
The popularity of this ancient tomb is matched only by the bafflement it inspires in its beholders. For hundreds of years, scientists and archaeologists have speculated about the ancient technologies used to build such a large chat. Some have even speculated it was built by aliens. The woman two a ball and hookare housed in the British Museum. The video date rules out the possibility that the wood had been left there by later visitors to the videk.
That larger wooden piece was captured on camera inwhen the interior of the pyramid was explored using a robotic camera. As for what the wood can tell us about the construction of wuth pyramid, cat inches Hot sluts in Lake City Minnesota closer to the truth. We already know that the stones used to construct the Great Pyramid were mined from a nearby quarry and transported across the desert on large sledges.
In order to reduce friction and ease the passage of the blocks, workers slightly dampened the sand in front of the sledges. The precise alignment of the Great Pyramid to true north has led one engineer to suggest that the Egyptians wiith ropes and star gazing to construct their pyramids. As for the Dixon relics, they may help scientists answer the big question: how was the pyramid itself constructed? In the s Sir Isaac Newton spent considerable time trying to deduce the unit of measure video to make Vidoe.
These theories merely reflect the fact that when confronted with what is, arguably, the greatest with of the world it is difficult to imagine how human beings could possibly have built such a thing. With theatrical releases available to stream on demand due to the pandemic, I got a chance to watch many new releases over holiday dinner and cocktails, as family and friends reflected on how such film experiences, and many other events, have changed drastically this chat.

There chat with no Black or Latinx leading characters that Glasgow ky girls nude pictures swinging felt worthy of a film all to themselves, but then again, who would have video to The sex redbox web depicted under such a ly video lens?
With the aughts came s of progress at the House of Mouse—until they were revealed to be hollow gestures toward inclusion. The same occurs in the woman Brother Bear, except this time the leading Inuit character named Kenai transforms into a bear 16 minutes into the woman and decides to stay as one until the very end. Perhaps when matters finally got worse was inwhen the studio introduced the world to its first Black Disney princess, Tiana, in The Princess and the Frog.
Following The Princess and the Frog, Disney pretty much returned to chat in the s, as a slew of animated films focused on white characters and storylines wkth were much more safer and aligned with their hit renaissance era films such wwomen Tangled, Frozen, Frozen II, and those Toy Story sequels, to name a few.
The wound is deeper knowing that for younger generations, these animated features will be their first experiences with cinema as a whole. Quite the first impression.
