“Looking at Los Sures” Director Diego Echeverria and UnionDocs artists in person

first_imgExperiments in Place and Collaborative Documentary: UnionDocs’ Looking at Los Sures Director Diego Echeverria and UnionDocs artists will be in person Tuesday, Oct. 18, 7 p.m. at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, room B-04, 24 Quincy St., Cambridge.In the late seventies and early eighties, South Williamsburg was one of the poorest neighborhoods in New York City. Largely Puerto Rican and Dominican, it was troubled by drugs and violence, full of abandoned real estate, and badly under-served. Los Sures, a documentary from 1984 by Diego Echeverria, skillfully represents the challenges of this time, while also celebrating a community that was connected, coherent, and full of culture.UnionDocs, a Center for Documentary Art based in South Williamsburg, has begun an investigation of the neighborhood that revisits Echeverria’s film and creates a constellation of companion documentary projects that update, annotate, challenge, and spiral off from the original. The result will be Looking at Los Sures, an interactive, multilayer online documentary project that seeks not just to extract important stories from the place, but to also create new shared histories, to deeply enhance local awareness, respect, and tolerance, and to facilitate relationships between neighbors.For this special event, Echeverria will be present to discuss his original film and respond to the contemporary work of UnionDocs. The program will include excerpts from the original and work from last year’s UnionDocs Collaborative Fellows.This screening and talk is presented by the Film Study Center with metaLAB (at) Harvard and is free and open to the public.

Watch Rita Wilson Talk Larry David in Powdered Wigs & Tom Hanks’ Toenails

first_imgActress/producer/singer/everything Rita Wilson stopped by The Today Show on February 27 to talk about her star turn in Fish in the Dark. Of course, we’re all being kept in the dark about what Larry David’s new play is about and despite host Matt Lauer hearing rumors that Wilson was the “weakest link” and might tell-all, it was not to be. What she did say about her co-star David was that “he is delivering whatever it is your expectation is of him….it’s not like he’s wearing a powdered wig and a waistcoat and talking in an English accent.” Wilson also revealed the one thing she always makes time for…and that her hubby Tom Hanks needs to clip his toenails (or something). Check out the interview below and Wilson in person at Broadway’s Cort Theatre.

Christian Borle Will Lead Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

first_img Show Closed This production ended its run on Jan. 14, 2018 Related Shows Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Two-time Tony winner Christian Borle is in gobstopping demand! The Something Rotten! star, who is going on to headline the Broadway revival of Falsettos this fall, will then take on the role of Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the spring. Directed by Jack O’Brien and choreographed by Joshua Bergasse, the previously announced reworked transfer of London’s hit tuner is set to begin previews in March 2017 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, the current home of Finding Neverland.This means that Borle could conceivably be up against himself for Best Actor in a Musical at the 2017 Tony Awards.”Christian was the first—and in truth—perhaps the ONLY person I could imagine to create the role of Willy,” O’Brien said in a statement. “His combination of child-like fantasy, edge, mystery, and sheer star power seemed destined for this role.”Borle took home a Tony Award in 2015 for his performance as a leather-clad Will Shakespeare in Something Rotten!. He also won in 2012 for Peter and the Starcatcher. His additional credits include Legally Blonde, Mary Poppins and Spamalot on Broadway and NBC’s Smash, The Sound of Music Live! and Peter Pan Live! on screen.Featuring a book by David Greig with music by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Shaiman and Scott Wittman, the musical is based on Roald Dahl’s 1964 children’s book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Willy Wonka, world famous inventor of the Everlasting Gobstopper, has just made an astonishing announcement. His marvelous—and mysterious—factory is opening its gates…to a lucky few. That includes young Charlie Bucket, whose life definitely needs sweetening. He and four other golden ticket winners will embark on a mesmerizing, life- changing journey through Wonka’s world of pure imagination. Get ready for chocolate waterfalls, exquisitely nutty squirrels and the great glass elevator, all to be revealed by Wonka’s army of curious Oompa-Loompas.Dahl’s book was first adapted to the big screen in 1971 under the title Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, starring Gene Wilder. In 2005, Tim Burton directed a remake using the novel’s original title, with Johnny Depp playing Wonka.Further casting will be announced at a later date. The production will feature scenic and costume design by Mark Thompson, lighting design by Japhy Weideman, puppet design by Basil Twist and orchestrations by Doug Besterman. The West End staging officially opened at London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane on July 25, 2013, starring Tony and Olivier winner Douglas Hodge as Willy Wonka and helmed by Sam Mendes.center_img Christian Borle(Photo: Joan Marcus) View Commentslast_img read more

Dry April?

first_imgFrom the forested mountains of Fannin County to the coastal plains of Lowndes County,the ongoing drought in Georgia is expected to worsen during the next few months.In the April climate outlook, the most likely scenario is for below-normal rainfall andabove-normal temperatures statewide. Climate outlooks areproduced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency’sClimate Prediction Center.Recent rains have brought only short-term drought relief. Rains have been helpful forcrops already in the field and for early pasture growth. However, there remains little orno soil-moisture reserve statewide.This lack of soil-moisture reserve is a major concern as Georgia enters the primegrowing season. There is little hope for improvement over the next several months.Summer Outlook: Hot, DryThe news is not any better for April through June. For the period, the outlook onceagain is for an increased probability of below-normal rainfall and above-normaltemperatures. The June-through-August outlook predicts an increased probability of above-normaltemperatures. However, there is some indication that by late summer, rainfall south of anAlbany-to-Augusta line may be above normal.Georgians, it appears, will have a long, hot, dry summer. Above-normal temperatureswill dry the soil further through evaporation and plant transpiration. The hastened lossof soil moisture will aggravate drought conditions.Low Stream Flows, Watering BansStream flows and reservoir levels are expected to remain low all summer. Many urbanresidents will probably have earlier, longer-lasting watering bans. With the droughtexpected to go on, Georgians need to be saving water.To learn more about easing drought impacts, contact your county extension agent or the UGA DroughtWeb site, read more
