Broadway makes masks optional for attendees in July – The Hollywood Reporter https://carolchanning.org/broadway-makes-masks-optional-for-attendees-in-july-the-hollywood-reporter/ Tue, 21 Jun 2022 16:11:49 +0000 https://carolchanning.org/broadway-makes-masks-optional-for-attendees-in-july-the-hollywood-reporter/ Masks will be optional for spectators attending Broadway shows in July.

Masks will be optional for spectators attending Broadway shows in July.

The Broadway League announced the “mask optional” policy on Tuesday, while still encouraging members of the public to wear masks. This cancels the current mask mandate, which is in place until June 30.

“Millions of people have enjoyed the unique magic of Broadway watching the 75e Tony Award Ceremony recently. Millions more have seen Broadway live in theaters in New York and across the United States since we reopened last fall. We are thrilled to welcome even more of our passionate fans to Broadway in the exciting 22-23 season that has just begun,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League.

Masking protocols for August and beyond will be evaluated on a monthly basis.

Broadway was one of the last remaining industries with a mask mandate and was one of the first to institute it. Members of the public have been required to wear masks on Broadway since July 2021.

The mandate has remained in place as Broadway weathered waves of COVID-19, with several performances canceled in the fall, winter and even recently due to multiple cast members testing positive for the virus. There were no public reports of audience members contracting COVID-19 in theater, but the masks served as a protective layer for unmasked but frequently tested audience members and actors.

Yet it’s a policy that many industry insiders say could have driven audiences away from the theater, at a time when the industry is looking to rebuild itself.

Vaccination proof mandate for audience members, also set in July 2021, has been up at most Broadway cinemas from May 1.

The mask decision comes about a week after the Tony Awards, where nominees and other public members sitting in the orchestra section, i.e. the most televised section, were not required to wear masks. Those members of the public had to submit a negative PCR test, while those seated in the upper sections still had to wear masks. A day after the Tony Awards, nominee Hugh Jackman, who also performed at the ceremony, announced he had tested positive for COVID-19.

New York City is emerging from its latest wave of COVID-19. New York lists its current alert level as high, which includes the recommendation that all New Yorkers wear a mask in all public and indoor settings, while the CDC lists the area at a medium alert level. The medium level has a mask recommendation for indoor public places where vaccination status is unknown.

Since taking office in January, Mayor Eric Adams has removed many mask mandates from the city, including in public schools. On June 13, Adams also made masks optional. for children aged two to four in school or other organized settings.

CHRONICLE: The third season of “Barry” remains charming despite its gravity, Hollywood critic https://carolchanning.org/chronicle-the-third-season-of-barry-remains-charming-despite-its-gravity-hollywood-critic/ Wed, 15 Jun 2022 23:00:00 +0000 https://carolchanning.org/chronicle-the-third-season-of-barry-remains-charming-despite-its-gravity-hollywood-critic/ The third-season finale of “Barry” premiered on HBO on June 12.

The third-season finale of “Barry” premiered on HBO on June 12. The critically acclaimed black comedy has captivated audiences since its debut, even through the continued darkening of its material in the second season. His latest installment continues that trend, getting darker and darker but still light enough to be compelling.

The basic premise guiding the first season of “Barry” is enough to hook viewers: a hitman is disillusioned with his craft and follows his aspirations to become an actor. With Bill Hader writing, directing and starring, the dark comedy sparked interest almost immediately.

The first episodes of the first season delivered what was expected, showcasing Barry’s restless attempts to leave his life as a hitman behind and learn to act. As the show progresses and Barry’s past catches up with him, the tone becomes darker and the stakes become much higher, culminating in the first season finale.

Throughout the second season, these dark themes progress as the show’s scope expands. Its humorous tone persists, but the narrative is increasingly charged with tension and heartbreak. The third season continues this descent, and as many of the main characters plunge into never-before-seen lows, viewers can only watch as the train sinks.

Barry himself is the perfect example. Viewers have followed his journey from hopeful actor and soon-to-be ex-hitman through his mild theatrical success and are scrambling to cover up his past. At the start of the third season, he is an empty shell of himself, mindlessly and remorselessly carrying out contract killings while passively working as an actor.

His relationship with Sally (Sarah Goldberg) has become next to nothing, with his own dead state and relentless work on his new show, “Joplin.” It comes to an explosive head in the second episode when Barry, unable to follow his path, completely flies off the handle and violently yells at him in his office, forcing viewers to recognize his unstable mental state.

The development of Barry and Sally’s relationship is an important part of the show’s harsh criticism of Hollywood show business. Shown primarily through Sally’s career path, the show has been critical of many levels of the film and theater industries, starting with the first season’s acting class and culminating with the production and release of “Joplin.” .

Take this particular scene in the second episode, for example. After the incident, Sally is convinced that Barry was just having a bad day, despite concerns from her young co-star, Katie (Elsie Fisher). Many members of her production team react similarly to Katie, unwilling to jeopardize their own jobs, but Katie eventually confronts Sally about the issue, which leads to her breaking up with Barry.

These kinds of Hollywood social pressures and norms are on full display in “Barry.” While these themes may seem odd based on the premise of the series, the story is rooted in show business. It delivers stinging satire of the industry in a humorous yet touching way, and the mental lengths Sally is pushed to because of it rivals even that of her handsome killer.

Viewers who have enjoyed “Barry” thus far, and especially those who enjoyed the second season, will certainly find more to love in the third. The thrilling performances from Hader and Goldberg, along with the other endearing characters, ensure that the series’ continued dive into its darker elements remains as entertaining as it is heartbreaking.

‘A Black Lady Sketch Show’ is a cavalcade and celebration of black hair – The Hollywood Reporter https://carolchanning.org/a-black-lady-sketch-show-is-a-cavalcade-and-celebration-of-black-hair-the-hollywood-reporter/ Fri, 10 Jun 2022 16:16:22 +0000 https://carolchanning.org/a-black-lady-sketch-show-is-a-cavalcade-and-celebration-of-black-hair-the-hollywood-reporter/ This is a fact of which Robin Thede is particularly proud: in three seasons of A dark lady sketch show, the series has never used the same hairstyle for different characters. “Our hair team doesn’t repeat a look, across hundreds of characters each season,” the creator and star of the HBO comedy series said.

This is a fact of which Robin Thede is particularly proud: in three seasons of A dark lady sketch show, the series has never used the same hairstyle for different characters. “Our hair team doesn’t repeat a look, across hundreds of characters each season,” the creator and star of the HBO comedy series said. THR.

For the six episodes and 36 sketches of season three, that meant 148 distinct hairstyles for the four main cast and guest stars and over 300 for the background players. The hair department used 92 wigs for the main cast and 115 for the background, plus 30 synthetic braid hair bundles, 20 human hair bundles and 12 ponytails.

“My trailer was a disaster the whole time,” laughs department head Shavonne Brown, who joined the show this season. “I had these big, massive trunks filled with wigs – two just for background – and we would label them ‘synthetic’, ‘human’ and for the different actors. Robin was like, ‘Do you need all this?’ But [after the season], she said: ‘Now I understand.’ I was always ready no matter what.

Brown says the main challenge her team of six — all black women — faced was the amount of looks required, which also all had to come up to scratch. ABLSS‘ high-end production standards. For the biblical theme “The Res-herrection”, the team had to make more than 20 creepy wigs and a dozen afro wigs for all the background players. “Strictly Frizzness,” Brown’s favorite skit to work on, involved fewer characters but still needed multiple stunt double wigs.

“It was fun and creative to do,” Brown says of the skit, a video game parody in which the opponents were personified hairstyles. “[The character] The Box Braids wig was so heavy that I had to keep adjusting it for the double as it had to hop. We also had to make sure the wigs stayed very tight while still being comfortable.

Unlike other stylists, Brown does not use glue to protect the actors’ hair, instead sewing in extra straps to secure the wigs. “Because I’m an African-American woman, I get it,” she explains. “I make sure their edges are protected, and we would oil and massage their scalps daily.” The team also took great care in fitting their custom wigs and adding padding and cushions where needed.

Another look Brown is particularly proud to deliver is the style Ashley Nicole Black wears in “Ashy Sunday,” in which she plays a woman who’s flipped from head to ankle (the devil tempts her with moisturizer for her feet leper). ). “Ashley wanted something natural but not like [her usual look]says Brown, who offered to make her a custom wig with butterfly braids. “It took me about nine hours, and it looked amazing on screen, so I was very proud of it.”

In recent years, the industry has gradually begun to listen to black actresses share stories about having to do their own hair, lest they face unflattering or even damaging work from inexperienced stylists. with textured hair. “We have had [guest stars] bring bags of wigs or do your own hair before arriving. A lot of people would walk into the trailer and say, “Oh my God, it’s all black,” Brown says of his castmates, four of whom were able to join the union after working on the show this season. (the other was already a member). “They were happy to see us and they thanked us at the end of the day because I also made sure that no matter how they came in, we would put [their own hairstyles] back and make sure they were good when they left.

Thede explains, “Black hair is an art in itself, just in the world, not to mention this show. I feel like people just take [ABLSS‘ hair department] for granted because black women are always changing their hairstyles, but you have to give these artists credit.

While paying tribute to the late Ray Liotta, Martin Scorsese explained why he couldn’t work with the actor again after Freedmen.

In an editorial for The GuardianPosted on Monday, Scorsese recalled working with the actor, who died last month aged 67, on the 1990 classic and shared his regret that he never reunited with the actor for another project before his death. .

“We had many plans to work together again, but the timing was always off or the project didn’t quite go well. I regret it now,” Scorsese wrote. “When I saw Ray play the part of the divorce lawyer in Marriage story — he’s really scary in the role, which is precisely why he’s so funny – i remember feeling like i wanted to work with him again at this point in his life, to explore the gravity in his presence, so different from the playful young actor that he was when I met him.

“I wish I had the chance to see him again, to tell him how much the work we did together meant to me. But maybe he knew. I hope so,” Scorsese continued.

Throughout his tribute, Scorsese shared behind-the-scenes stories from Freedmendescribing Liotta as someone who “never missed a beat” and their relationship as one that “felt like we had worked together for years”.

During filming, Scorsese found Liotta “distraught” in her trailer after learning that her mother had died. Although the director “told him he had to go be with her”, Scorsese recalled that Liotta was “adamant” that he “wanted to do the scene before he left”. The director called it a “rare experience” to see Liotta act out the scene “so beautifully” before leaving “to be with her beloved mother”.

“We walked to the set together, everyone was told what was going on, and something amazing happened as we rolled,” Scorsese wrote. “The scene revolved around the characters’ euphoria after making their first big score, and everyone came together in an emotional bond around Ray: as everyone laughed and celebrated, they cried with him. at the same time. Laughter and tears, tears and laughter…it was one and the same thing.

Publicist Jennifer Allen said THR that Liotta died in his sleep in his hotel room while in the Dominican Republic to make the film Dangerous waters, which he had started working on a week before. His fiancée, Jacy Nittolo, was with him.

In a statement sent to THR after the news of Liotta’s death, Scorsese said, “He was so uniquely gifted, so adventurous, so brave as an actor. Playing Henry Hill in Good Fellas was a tall order, because the character had so many different sides, so many complicated layers, and Ray was in almost every scene of a long and difficult shoot. He absolutely amazed me and I will always be proud of the work we did together in this photo. My heart goes out to his loved ones, and it hurts for his loss, all too soon.

GoodFellas co-stars Robert De Niro and Lorraine Bracco also paid tribute to Liotta. “I was very saddened to learn of Ray’s passing. He is far too young to leave us.
