Sweeney Todd - 2014 Lincoln Center

Featuring: Bryn Terfel, Emma Thompson, Philip Quast, Audra McDonald, Christian Borle, Kyle Brenn, and Erin Mackey

I was fully expecting another stiff concert version of an amazing Sondheim score. Watch to find yourself pleasantly surprised! It’s the perfect interpretation for this musical.

Completely, jaw droppingly amazing, leaving me yelling profanities at the tv screen by the end of the first few minutes. Cast. Material. Direction. God it’s good when it all comes together.

"so what is Withnail and I about”

"well one of the title characters drinks lighter fluid in the first act because he is cold and at one point five consecutive lines of dialogue between three characters are literally just the word ‘sherry’"

Missing rudesby's spacey impression of Danny something fierce right now

Sam, let’s watch Withnail RIGHT NOW. Why are you in Boston?

This. This moment is MAGICAL, always and forever, but especially if you had no idea what Aretha looks like when you first see the film.

Literally my favorite movie of all time.

I was JUST thinking about the magic of this movie, especially the first time I saw it. I’m not great with faces, especially of musicians that I mostly know through the radio, so when suddenly, characters burst into song and you realize HOLY CRAP, IT’S [insert name of legend here], man there’s no beating this movie.

"There are a handful of shows I ask everyone I talk to about television if they have seen: The Wire, Mad Men, Friday Night Lights. But when I ask them if they’ve watched and loved Friday Night Lights, what I mean is are you my kind of person? Are you all heart? Are you bothered by this 21st-century lack of earnestness, our abundance of irony? Do you wonder how we forgive and coach ourselves to do better? How we can strive again for valor and loyalty and daring and redemption? 

I fear we are defaulting to needless negativity as some kind of social currency. But Friday Night Lights is the most earnest show I’ve ever watched. Not sentimental, however: these characters aren’t perfect. In fact, this show is incredibly astute at allowing humans to have stratums of complexity: to have character and occasionally act without it, and then to live in the mire of their own dumb choices. Do I adore Coach? Yes. Do I think, as Tammy says, he is a molder of men and a husband of fierce devotion? Absolutely. Do I also think he can also be a self-involved, sexist prick who values his career over his wife’s? No question.

Regardless of the scale of the battle, the stakes in Friday Night Lights are rarely phony or contrived. It’s about winning games, sure, but its scope far exceeds that. This is a show that tests and reflects commitment not just on the football field, but back in the locker room. And in Street’s rehab room, and Saracen’s grandmother’s living room, and Julie’s bedroom, and eventually out to Luke’s farm and Tim’s prison and Tammy’s dream in Philadelphia. This commitment is not about obligation, but something more sacred. Duty. The hidden gale that blusters and grows within us and makes us yearn to give someone else exactly what they need.”

—Erica Cantoni on Friday Night Lights (Bright Wall/Dark Room, Issue #14, July 2014)

These are the most fabulous stage directions I have ever had the privilege to witness.

this dude’s the director right, cause i recognise these postures.
chorus, that was your cue.
chorus, get on stage - you missed your cue.
CHORUS, WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU NOT ON STAGE?
fuck it, i will play the chorus

Bottom left is my favorite. “THERE. THERE is your entrance. RIGHT THERE.”

i fucking love renaissance art like i saw this piece today that depicted the virgin’s immaculate conception as a tiny jesus flying in through a window on a collision course with mary’s hoo ha like

LOOK AT HIM GO

It looks more like he’s going to hit her ear. That’ll never work, Jesus.

This art is kind of amazing… but I also have to be the pedantic product of 13 years of Catholic school and use the opportunity to note that the Immaculate Conception refers to Mary herself being conceived without sin, not the later conception of JC Superstar. It makes for a great punchline and so people use it ALL THE TIME in a totally inaccurate way and it always makes me frustrated.
