Fresh update on "broadway" discussed on The Joan Hamburg Show
"It's good news and also reminds us that the audience for big movies is not the kind of people that we are that want to see. Little is very intelligent, thoughtful movies, which Have will probably flourish on television. As we've noticed. A lot of the best writing is on episodic television these days, especially on cable, but certainly on some of the regular networks as well. So I think I think I think Intellectual, so it's sort of a damned way to say it. It's sort of damning, but there was a smaller movies that grown ups and adults tend to like we'll probably find decent releases, but not large releases theatrically, but they'll do same day day of opening on television as they do in theaters. And I think they will always. I think it's a good good news because those for me it's good news because those are the kind of movies I like to watch the most. But I do think that movie theaters will be skewed more to the bigger fantastic things and tell the television and brief releases in theaters to qualify for awards will will will continue but won't exactly be Is from flourishing, but I hope I'm wrong. I hope everything goes back to great going to be right Actor. And of course, you've done Broadway film all kinds of things. Did you love movies Love being in movies? You're known as one of the great character actors. Um I basically love working and being with people, So it's not a huge difference to me. In terms of my enjoyment of my investment in it. If I'm directing something, occasionally producing something or acting in it were being in a player directing a play. They all satisfy my urge to deal with fantasy and and and really at the heart of it all is theater, which which was the first bug that bit me. Cause that was the first thing I could do. Obviously, when you're 17 and 16, it's hard to be in movies unless you live in Hollywood and you you're discovered a Schwab's, but the basis for me is really make believe, and it's just I get a kick out of it. I love scenery. I'll go and watch a movie That's not shooting just so I could see what the scenery looks like. I'm It's kind of never left me. It's not like you do it, and you do it. You do it, and they're kind of bored with it. I never get bored with it. So so I'm stuck. Well, it's a habit. I can't Ah lot of extraordinary films. But I have to tell you that, Chris guess best in show that makes me so happy when we need that Fillmore than ever today. Well, I think they're showing it a lot now and it actually of the five Christopher guest movies. They all had a core audience that love them. But the one that drew in the greatest number of people in there was the most financially successful was best in show. It had all the greatness of what Chris guess loves to do with his wonderful company, But it also had dogs, so it would. I don't think anybody predicted this but it But from the beginning from the opening weekend, it was clear that this was gonna be Chris's big money maker, and itwas Just pleased on so many levels. There was a dog that was in the show whose owner was very persnickety, because you know these were all real show dogs. They had to be willing to, you know, run around in the ring and be obedient and do all the things that show dogs do. But this one's owner was especially careful with her dog. She grew under extra. She was very proud of it. It was a standard French poodle. And she found out about halfway into the production that there was a loose script. You know, these things are improvised. But there is a story that's written down and it follows the story. She discovered something she hadn't known, which was that her dog was not gonna win best. In show she's assumed because it was called Dustin Show in her dog was in it that her dog was gonna win it, and she got so upset that she removed her dog from the show. Fortunately, that's so funny, most standard poodles. Of a certain color and size can be somewhat hard to identify. And so nobody really realized this was happening, but we we thought it was. We thought it was worthy of being in the show. But we could do it because it didn't make sense. But that was something those characters in the show would have done. Well. I urge everyone if they haven't seen it, and you want to be happy and you want to laugh. And you wanna look at a world that many people don't know. So watch that film, which is great now you always Have a lot of projects that, you know, not just one. Are you now planning ahead? Do you feel and you said maybe where around the curve here? Well, I know on television. It's beginning to be a different world. One of the things if you want to say the if there is a good side, a positive side to dip endemic and it's it's a small one. You have a lot of more time on your hands and one of the things that I was able to do that in my regular running around and doing a million things like If I didn't. I never have enough time to read enough. So I started reading more books during the pandemic, and I wasn't so subconscious. I tended to two to choose books that sounded like they would make great movies or television series. So I did come up with a couple of things that I think will be well, at least gets his home his second base, if not a home run. You never know until it's over. But I was able to find a couple of projects that now have homes with different producers in different places, so that when things Are picking up more and they're beginning to. I've got some stuff already in development, which is which is a comforting feeling, because you do feel very cut offs under working world and it's a great time to read, and it's a great great time to really pay attention to projects not just get a great idea and think it's It's good because you read the synopsis of the book, but to really invest in some of these things in a way that normally I don't have the patience for the time to do. I'm talking to Bob Balaban. Are you talking about directing acting rewriting well, with the things I choose to produce, I always wanna be a producer. And if possible, I want to be the director of most of the episodes. I've never developed anything from me to act in. Probably because I figured I could get somebody better, smarter payment more. Famous than I am, which would be easy to do so I don't develop things for myself, particularly that's that's what I That's the thing that I do that I just wait for my agent to call and hopefully, ultimately, she calls fairly frequently..

Deadly the exact of that is what happened. I'm just terrifying. I had not acted before other than in high school writing middle school like musical theater. Some plays but i never acted before as a major motion picture leading a cast. It was the idea that to me was like unfathomable unanimity at n ridiculous. Actually to be honest. I was like this is a terrible idea so now but i met with him and his he was thinking the same thing he like now. I really don't to preserve his role in so we didn't want to win a perfect meeting. Yeah it was amazing. Actually i know want you. I do not want to do this part anyway. Why don't we just sit here. Should be here these orders and we can go home so it was interesting. We bonded because we both were like. This is a terrible idea. But i saw him a desire to authentically. Tell billy store. In as a fan of billie holiday that was part of my fear is that i'd be staying on her legacy. that'd be stay on a great. Diana ross's legacy lady sings the blues or audra mcdonald on broadway. So i think we both saw. He was worried that he would also be that in casting me in so so we both had a great fear to overcome together. I think really for both of us. I mean through face into a lot of hard work and and and a great team right at gargantuan effort by our entire sort of ecosystem of people in family. you know we got together. We dove in. We move to get her here. We are win injured. Did the fear goal way Fear number one. Which but what happened was that i was uncomfortable and i was scared being but i had piece about. I had a piece about my purpose. Does that make sense. You know so was muscle. I was terrified. But i started to sort of feel my spirit. I try to stay. Spiritually grounded connected. I started to feel that. Okay just i was just reading. Certain things in has started to feel okay. I think i'm supposed to do this. I think this is something i suppose to say. Yes to i am. I actually read a scripture about being caused to face your fears doing act great faith and that's when i know care have to do this so i was still scared but it was one of those things that was like okay. You're gonna have to actually face it in a recumbent. Can you remember that. I seeing the did whatever that day was like where you're actually being billing. What did he was he gentle with yuli daniels and not starting with some. We actually very well. His the first day in the very first scene was gentle and our industry with natasha. Who's obviously incredible veteran actor writer like she knows this process from the top down so i was blessed that my first thing with her lee was extremely tender with me in two the entire process. You know so. It almost didn't matter with see we started with he had such care unanimity. But we did start. It's latasha leone is too little. The bank of holiday walking through central park in enemy talking about in his ability never jail talking bar tabarre card demand that she's dealing with stating from her. So it was. It was a little restricting through the park with the dogs. You know but it wasn't easy in the sense that it's technically my first day of shielding ever so that air ejector a by can't walk through parks sizably talulah bacon back and then the very next scene was actually her and i just making out in jewelry store so it was great. Second you know. Joe right in with lynching sexiness his first week little stroll in central park. That never happens again. Naked in front of strangers. That was gonna ask you before. I we talk about billion and the connection that that the two of you have of that night before you went to work the next day. What kind of a good night's sleep did you have. I'll regularly so. I really didn't sleep that i i'm not a. I'm not a sleeper. That's skill in the talent. I have not yet developed. Maybe somebody can hire me to be asleep. Let's see if some miracle pops out of that. That would be great so you know. It's interestingly enough people. Ask me what scene i struggled with the most non my okay was very emotionally challenging with a cenex. Struggle with divorce was in the hospital. But they're like billy's sleeping dislike. Relax a little bit like you just sleep Get closure is billion now. I there was no sleeping before going to set. Did it help you all that you have this wonderful musical career that you've been on stage in front of people. It's not the same thing as acting but in a way it is known as a singer as a musician. You have to feel everything you have to make it. Look like it's rolling off a lock that this is it. You can be confident than within the confidence. You can be inspired. He ended up at all. Yeah i think it did excellently. I mean you know one of the things my acting coach thomas which say she's like you know when it comes to acting. She knew how just terrified was she said it is. They are different but it is sort of the same. What she she calls. We ought announcing Chapman tuna says. Okay you know so. I think it did help in the sense that i know what it is like to go onstage. I know what it's like every night. The pressure before you go on stage the need for audience to love you for them to be satisfied for them to feel your love them. And i understand the washing process that once you're in it and you're in the music in your is i look at it as sort of a washing kind of cleansing a healing. Because i think that's it. And then i understand the feeling actor a performance of like. Oh my god that went so great or everybody's loving it select or arable like oh my god i i never wanna perform again. You know what. I mean. So i understand. Bill got sort of arca the most. There's so many permutations that yeah there is.

Kristin Stultz Pressley On Dorothy Fields And Her Impact On Broadway Musical Theater
"Well hello kristin welcome back to the podcast while it is so good to be back with you. Thank you for having me. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching your podcast as it has grown. You've done some really exciting things and talk to some incredible people and so it's been a real joy to watch it will relations by the way. Thank you for being a listener as well as a guest but yeah it's good to have you back and so what was it. That drew you to dorothy fields. And why did you want to write a book about her well. To be honest. I started studying. Dorthy fields a master's candidate at the university of kentucky and one of the bugaboos about graduate school. They expect you to have a research project and the real catch is. It needs to be something. No one else's ever researched before so it can be pretty tricky because If it's something that no one's ever researched before how are you going to know about it right. And how are you gonna find research about exactly so you're really starting from scratch. So i went to graduate school bride. Probably twenty three twenty four year old new. I wanted to study. Musical theater was in the theater. Department had no idea what that specific topic would be that. I would research for the next two years. Actually i was planning on doing a phd. So would have been the next four years. I knew it would be related to musicals. I knew what related to the golden age of musical. So i was thinking cole. Porter irving berlin oscar hammerstein. I loved lyrics and Each of these wrote lyrics so that was something that was already drawn to. But every time i talk with my advisor she was We know everything about quarter. Everything's been done about oscar hammerstein. There've been books written about and by irving berlin says she would just keep shooting down and rightfully so. Because i needed what was going to be my contribution right. What was what was going to be my something that i could add to the academy so to speak. And so as a person of faith. I literally prayed and prayed and prayed and prayed and one day in her office. It was as if i saw this blinding vision across my eyes and it just was the name dorothy fields and i knew nothing about dorothy fields. Except that i recognized her name from the show card from sweet charity. Nineteen sixty six charity And i had seen that show card. So much of course had the cd collection. So i am the the cd case very much like the show card. And so i just blurted out. What about dorothy fields adviser stopped. And said i don't know anything about dorothy fields and so that was two thousand three. I went home and it was the very early days of googling there. There was not much on the internet yet. But there was enough that i could see my goodness. This woman wrote the way you look tonight. This woman wrote. I'm in the mood for love. This woman wrote on sunny side of the street. This woman was the brain power behind any. Get your gun. She came up with the idea to do a show about any oakley. And so i went back to my adviser at a different class to that night and told her. What do you think about this. This is what i found out. She says let's do it so it's been almost two decades that i've been at this but i continued that work not only for masters but also for my doctoral dissertation which i ended up doing my phd at the university of georgia. But i took dorothy with me. When i went from lexington to athens. Dorothy came along for the ride. You basically were looking at her life from you. Know more academic educational standpoint. So what makes this different from those dissertations. That's actually a great question you know. It's funny because when people ask me what the book is about or have asked me over the past twenty years what. I was researching. And i would mention dorothy fields. And everybody's i don't know her but then you mentioned song titles you say hey big spender. She wrote that or pick yourself up. She wrote that or on the sunnyside of the street. She wrote that everybody gets that same. Like a ha. I know her but they didn't know that they knew her in my master's thesis. That's one question that i asked was why her name. Not as well known as porter and all of those men not only were they collaborators of hers they were very well loved colleagues who esteemed. Dorothy is one of them. And there's a couple of suggestions for that one is. She was never part of a team that that lasted for a long time. So by that. I mean rodgers and hammerstein that that is an iconic dua were Rodgers and hart even or irving berlin wrote music and lyrics cole porter music and lyrics but dorthy fields for it with eighteen different composers over a five decade long career so there was never easy to pinpoint her as. Oh well. that's i mean the closest would be jimmy. Mccue who was first collaborator of fields in. Bq song where it just it just there. That never happened with her. It never became a catchphrase. Another suggestion is because she was very self effacing. You know if she was asking an interview. Oh we'll tell us about this experience. Riding with arthur schwartz or whatever she would immediately turn it around and said well let me tell you how great. It is work with arthur. You know she would always shine. The spotlight on her collaborator And so that's another reason. Why perhaps she didn't seek the spotlight and it wasn't until later in her career. She became concerned with legacy and she hired a publicist at and that happened in the late. Nineteen fifties as. I think her her brother died unexpectedly. Her husband died unexpectedly her her dear friends and collaborators beginning to die and i think she realized at that point. Hey maybe i am concerned with being. And i do need help to accomplish that.

Ellen's empire began to decline ellen and william had failed to patent their paper patterns a competitor ebeneezer butterick had done so successfully at first butterick stuck to men's and children's ware but by eighteen sixty seven he'd expanded to women's patterns to ebenezer butterick company remains the center of the paper pattern industry today in eighteen.

Fault Tolerant Distributed Gradient Descent
"Hello my name is native. And i'm a computer scientist. Gay as opposed to grow researcher at ebay university switzerland. I work on distributed computations. Specifically i work on. Algorithms concerning distribution optimization disrupted consensus and distributed collaborations systems soi robotics and online voting and in this particular eighty of research. I mainly focus on darwin's by indeed for owners many avi considered networks. There's some of the notes in the networks are militias adversarial or they're just forty. And how does this affect the oral fixation off the elegant now. This is something that's interesting to me in my engineering part of the brain working for big company. I'd say well we can control all of our nodes about some rogue employees or something. But i guess outside of a company the world really runs on bigger systems. How common are these sort of peer to peer distributed problems in people's everyday lives definitely. I made for example. Just consider our current situation which is the ongoing pandemic. Let's see your these. Scooby trackers right you have these scored trackers on your phones than you. Are gary these records with the sword these strikers in vancouver you go in close proximity to someone else that say who might annette it or who might in recent history being tested positive so this gives you a notification. Hey you know you gaming on equity this person and he was the best positive so you may want to take some precautions. Analysts say based on these kind of trackers companies and government started building policies. Just imagine how difficult it would be if someone starts messing around for example. Let's say be Falsely claimed themselves as high-risk saying that. I just hires Ever i'm a Is also is that would discreet Rice appear to be systems are already there used is just a v are naively ignoring the fact that some of the notes in the systems be malicious authority. Fonte just like internet. You have millions of notes on the net not everything. Not everything is on the cloud on server controlled by big or big komen administration. They are so many of these notes that are spreading misinformation they have destroying to disrupt the internet for example you might have heard of. Thanks like jamming attacks Jammed the settlers despite sandy query. So you know these kinds of notes vais fairly common in our everyday use in suggests we get to hear them band. There's a big disaster. Or there's an actual big down of these systems when i started learning about distributed computing and of course it was called big data at the time. One of the first examples is term frequencies so in a lot of documents you the percentage of times you see something that often gets labeled as embarrassingly parallel because you just want to frequency. You need the numerator divided by the denominator and it's easy to divide that problem up and rejoin it but not. Every problem is so embarrassingly easy to solve. What about your specific research into gradient descent. What makes that one hard to do in a distributed fashion. You had distributed Any one this networks to be useful to the specific problem. Let's say that you are trying to solve for example as you just mentioned either. You're trying to get the frequency of a border from documents spent on the internet or let's take a step forward but apps you are trying to build some kind of image classified so different notes on the have different data sets. Let's say images of their dogs. And you want to use these images of dogs neck so many images of those who could be a very strong image classic fire for dogs something that would dismantle the human ability declassified at all so you wanna less this complicated Now designing image classified using all these distribution data said on the internet different notes having different data points. It's quite complicated even when you have all the data points at one body a machine. It's a headline. more of the. The sets are divided in different machines so to ensure that comes like these like machine learning run smoothly when certain nodes in the network militias spinal challenging not descending. It's very interesting to study. How these types can be done. Smoothly on gedeon descent is specific That is by far the was algorithm used from sheet lending pieces and what happens ingredient descent. Is you have these different. Data sets distributed on different notes. Therefore defend nodes have different loss functions. Now what we are trying to do now in this district. Setting is minimized the aggregate of all these functions are loss functions. Now when you're doing this by nature the most commonly use angry gradients design. Because it's naturally distributed many obligingly send it just reduces at the gradients of loss functions in each round. Or so if you're learning and gordon to when you're adding these gradients together some notes are not going to provide you ladies of los angeles. They may be forty. May be broadway. You re totally incorrect. Greediest maybe designed maliciously innovate to move you. words solution. that famous day goes data points. They may favor. Let's say dogs of a burglary or some other panels notions. Maybe they want to completely rendered the classification problem useless. They want to maybe instead of dog. Trained you the classify so as you can see ensuring that is reputed gradient descent runs smoothly at least within some reasonable dominates in residents of such Notes is of practically at this point vendor. You have all this The algorithms training using data sets coming from all sorts of people on it.
How theater weathers wars, outlasts empires and survives pandemics
"Oh firm use of fire that would ascend the brightest heaven of invention a kingdom for a stage princes to act and monarch to behold the swelling scene. Though to be totally honest right. Now i'd settle for a real school day a night out and a hug from a friend. The words that i spoke at the beginning firm use a fire etc are shakespeare's. He wrote them as the opening to his play. Henry the fifth and there are also quite likely. The first words ever spoken on the stage of the globe theatre in london when it opened in fifteen ninety nine the global go on to become the home for most of shakespeare's work and from what i hear that shakespeare guy was pretty popular but despite his popularity just four years later in sixteen zero three. The globe would close for an extended period of time in order to prevent the spreading and resurgence of the bubonic plague and facts from sixteen zero three to sixteen thirteen. All of the theaters in london were closed on and off again for an astonishing seventy eight months here in chicago in two thousand sixteen new theaters opening as well. The steppenwolf had just opened at seventeen hundred theater. Space the goodman down in the loop had just opened its new center for education and engagement and the chicago shakespeare theatre had just started construction on its newest theatre space. The yard today. Those theatres as well as the homes are over two hundred and fifty other theater companies across chicago are closed due to covid nineteen from broadway to l. a. Theaters are dark and when or if the lights are ever going to come on again. That means that tens of thousands of theater artists are out of work from actors and directors to stage managers. Set builders costume designers. It's not like it's an easy time to go wait tables. It's a hard time for the theater. And it's a hard time for the world but while theaters may be feeder as an art form has the potential to shine on how we can process and use this time apart to build a brighter more equitable healthier future together. Theater is the oldest art form we humans have. We know that the greeks were writing plays as early as the fifth century. Bc but theater goes back before that it goes back before we learned to write to call and response around fires. And who knows maybe before we learned to build fire itself feeder has outlasted empires weathered wars and survived plagues in the early sixteen hundred. Theatres closed over sixty percent of the time in london. And that's still looked at is one of the most fertile an innovative periods of time in western theater history. The plays that were written then are still performed today. Over four hundred years later unfortunately in the early sixteen hundreds a different plague was making its way across the ocean and it hit the shores of what would be called american sixteen nineteen when the first slave ships landed in jamestown virginia. Racism is an ongoing plague in america but many of us in the theater like to think we're not infected or that we are at worst as symptomatic but the truth is our symptoms have been glaring onstage and off. We have the opportunity to use this intermission. Caused by one clegg to work to cure another. We can champion a theater. That marches protests burns bills. We can reimagine the way our theaters institutions work to make them more reflective. And just we can make this one of the most innovative and transformative periods of time in western theater. History one that we're still learning about celebrating four hundred years from now. What we embody in the theater can be embodied in the world. Why because theater is an essential service. And what i mean by that. Is that theater is in service to that which is essential about ourselves. Love anger rage despair. Hope theatre not only shows us the breadth and depth of human emotions. It allows us to experience catharsis to feel our feelings and rather than ignore compartmentalize them move through them to discover. What's on the other side

"So you can test your trivia knowledge and right now we have. I think about fifteen while the latest quiz but then we have about another dozen of the older quizzes. So you can do that. We have what. I call the bracket challenge so we did the top musical of the two thousands and that was sort of find so then i said hey. Let's do the top musical of the nineties so we are in stink. They're voting is still on for the finals. So right now. I think it's lying. King verse ragtime a difference so So we have we have that and these are just. They're just fun. Things is linked to the podcast. We have Specialty programs which i think are a lot of fun so you go to the theater. A lot And the one thing that's missing from musicals nowadays is an overture. They used to always have overtures. I love ocher. So i i have a special a weekly specialty program called just overtures or just title songs there was the forbidden broadway series which is sort of parodies of twelve us. Well i have a specialty. Show the best of forbidden broadway. So i want all of that. Excuse me they run. I mean i sort. I sort of fuel rations. But it ran. I mean you know in different versions. Allow for fifty. I don't know. I mean for for for eons. I mean they so you get all this year they were date it right they they would change or every couple of years because they just you know they. I think the original ramp for a couple years and then red so all. This is on the radio on my website. And so there's a lot of kind of fun information there and then also i just added a a survey because right now i have as of today. I'm at one hundred and twenty two thousand listeners. A month and from all over the world and so on my analytics i can see a map of the world. So it's it's a lot of fun to see that. But i don't know how. How do people find out about the station. So the survey says how did you find out about it you know. How often do you listen. So we're looking. I'm looking at that In the last month that the numbers have exploded averaging five thousand new listeners a day now there's a difference between i will admit total listeners and unique listeners so but both of them are just going up by fifty sixty percent a week so wonderful. Are you think that right. Now you know given the fact they're coordinates. Clueless people are craving things like this and they're also alive on casts and youtube things. I mean a lot of the broadway actor is users or doing their own thing. So maybe they're mentioning here. Maybe they're doing shouts. And i think i think i would like to think that And i think but also like you said. Broadway's close so people will it's not just broadway regional theatres the community theater so people that like musical theatre. Where do i go. Well hey go to this radio station where not only can you hear anne whatever But you can hear new things to so i. I'm hoping maybe that's you know if you if you have to look at us. Try and find specs of a silver lining with the pandemic People are are looking to musical theater. So also i'm concerned. I think that the pipeline is going to be slow for quite a while. Well i was interviewing a ceo of a regional theatre in connecticut the other day and and that's one thing he brought up instead which i thought was very interesting for national tours for example..

"I'll be happy that there's very little risk that we're going to go into a war anytime soon. Unless there's some extreme event that happens that dead. That we're not aware of right now people talk about Trump. Like he's an authoritarian. He's not he's a narcissist and there's a big difference if you take a look at what's happened, for example with respect to Covent over the past eight months. It hasn't been Trump that's been talking about, you know, federalizing all the standards. He's knocked out there saying shut down. He's not out there saying wear masks. He's not the one that out there saying nationalize businesses in order to produce things for for things. I mean, that's just not who he is. He instinctively is a pro-business pro-government federalist. Guy and if there were ever a time that a president or anyone else could have used or power. It has been during pandemic you need really know to look no closer than New York or Massachusetts or Michigan or a whole slew of other states to see just how far government could go if they wanted to in terms of imposing their will on, you know, the people and Trump just didn't do that. He was incompetent agree and he again is an extreme narcissistic things really are all about him. But that's very different than a totalitarian that you need to be concerned about someone that's just going to completely destroy. The the country and that's just my take in terms of what's going on. We will try and impose, you know, talk a little bit more more about politics especially over the next page as we got closer to the election, you know, it's a topic that's at hand doesn't always per se going going hand-in-hand with something like Broadway because Off Broadway is entertainment and I am strong a strong view that you do try and keep your entertainment and your politics aside, but you know, it's also a fact that there are plenty of shows that have politics in them and Broadway community over time has indeed I you know confused itself and various political discussions. So it's appropriate for us to bring up those topics and not shy away from them on this podcast but wage That's my take for now again. We'll try and be back over the next week or so. We're talking about doing a few different things with respect to the podcast off. Maybe some interviews more panels more discussions a few other things. So stay tuned and hopefully will continue to earn your support and for that. I'm John I'm Chase and this is Broadway in politics..

"You know, the appeasement policy that Obama Biden hath And 2008 returning I would say that you're going to see a more of a global construct. Of course than than you've seen over the past, you know, four years with Donald Trump, but there really is no return to what happened prior to it. And the reason for that is because you know, the world hasn't hasn't Stood Still. I mean, you know China For Better or For Worse Trump has shown the world what China is and what its threats are, you know by backing out of something like the Iran program and seeing the middle successful stories between the countries and Israel there really is no going back there. So yes absolutely and will be a different foreign policy approach. It will probably be more of a global approach and say you have seen with Donald Trump. But once again, it's not going to be as a radical at a substantial as if you're on the left fear wage. And let me talk to my friends on the left if Donald Trump wins, you know, there are many people who fear a second term Donald Trump me think he's a tyrant. They think he's authoritative. They they think he is a threat to the country as we see and here's what I'll say. There's zero reason to fear that whoever once again, there's no reason to believe that the House and Senate are going to be any different than what I said regardless of whether or not Trump or biting winds. It's going to be a democratic house. It's going to be close to a fifty-fifty split in the Senate. So from a legislative perspective, there's going to be very very little that Trump can do without getting it passed the Democrats and if You Look At Dem if you look at Trump, I think one thing that everybody kind of agrees with is that he's all about himself. He's a narcissist. He wants to get a deal done the first person off. Sell the Republicans down the river in a situation where you have a Democratic Senate and House is going to be Donald Trump. He wants to get the deal done. He'll do whatever it takes to get that deal done and that will mean leaving his own party In The Wind foreign policy. You know, I personally actually think that wage it was one of Trump's strong points. I'm sure he'll continue it. There will be more success in the Middle East as you can see on the positive side. If you're a Democrat, there won't be a war. I remember that Democrats when they were the anti-war party. Well, guess what? I mean. There's there's zero indication to believe that Trump has any interest in war and I think that the country as a whole is is better for that way..

"I thought as a work of art. It was enjoyable. I like a good portion of the music but I do think that in terms of its story long and politically it didn't work for me and it was way past its time. It was about fifteen years in my opinion past its time compared that again to Avenue Q and which was the exact opposite it was ahead of its time and it just tried to push the wage discussion slightly farther ahead and a very very positive constructive way to a beautiful story a beautiful show that really in my opinion. I worked in every possible way. Now as we sit here today, we are talking about we are we are we are recording this about 10 days before the election off and you know, one of the things we've gotten in our feedback category is that hey supposed to be Broadway in politics and you don't really talk that much about politics. Well, you know, I think that this is probably a good time to talk a little bit about politics and the current climate and here's how I want to do it off. I want to talk about it and constructive way to both people on the roof support the Democrats and the people who support the Republican choice and here's one how I'm going to do it. Okay, first people are going to ask me what's my my view on the landscape my my my personal view. Is that if the alleging Were held today Giovanni would win the presidency. I don't think it's anywhere near the landslide that the polls have for a variety of reasons, but I would I actually think that a simplification is, you know, Donald Trump just hasn't grown his base. So he's going to get that base help but the base was severely depressed in 2016 for a variety of reasons on a Democrat side and that base is not depressed this time. It'll be out he had to draw a royal flush in order to win the last time because the Democratic base is not depressed this time and it will be out. He just won't be able to draw that flush. So that's my projection on the presidential re-election on the senatorial election..

"I don't care what state you're in in the United States is going to be shined and unable to go to the prom with her partner is ludicrous and it's something that even in, you know, the most rarest of state is a construct that is not grounded in reality and is only grounded from their perspective and you know people who don't really understand their lifestyle will just perceive it as people making fun of them. You know, it's true that if you are in the coast, you know the concept of homosexuality and gay marriage is more grounded in the culture and acceptable in life, but that doesn't mean that in wage. Galerius were areas where Charles you would say are more conservative that you know, there's still substantial bigotry and pressure against those people and that lifestyle and areas that you know, it's not as prevalent. So the first thing that I want to highlight that I thought that when completely dead South in the premise of the prom is that it's just outdated now if it's were in the 90s if this show were coming out in the nineties where if it were taking place in the nineties, you can make a much stronger argument going back to Avenue Q to me what made Avenue Q so successful in a different job. In addition to its execution was its timeliness and the way it tackled all of its issues that it's raised it only made subtle arguments, and it was timely It Off You know it did it addressed everything through humor and through comedy and music and through puppets. And it really you know, it it didn't push something in your face and it was advancing a cause that was moving as opposed to being stuck in a time that in many ways has already passed. So the whole construct of the prom the first problem is it's something that you know, again, you're you're putting on a show in the year 2018. You're not trying to date it meaning is no indication from the creators of the prom that you know, this is supposed to have taken place in an earlier time..

"Or do anything negative cuz generally speaking as a show as a construct staging with the puppets and the music it was a wonderful show off and it's outright. And with that. I want to talk to turn to a discussion about a show that came up a little more recently and that's the prom the prom was on Broadway 2018-2019. I believe and I heard that it's now actually going to be a Netflix movie with quite a few subjects now chase you and I saw the prom together. What do you think of it? I didn't really like it too much. I thought the songs are the songs were at I actually enjoyed the sauce. I felt like the music as a whole it had its few hits and I think the hits that were in the show were at the right moment home. I agree with you that the score again as a whole wasn't the greatest but it's still had those two or three hits that I still play every so often in our backup camera. Might've and I enjoyed the show. I mean, I walked out it had its funny moments..

"It's a very original, you know, it basically uses puppets to sort of get people sort of off guard to start talking about a slew of topics that are actually very very serious in nature. moving on to another topic that Avenue Q talks about is in my second favorite song which is, you know, the Internet is just only good for Porn right now the internet back then this is back again in the late 90s early 2000s was still in its infinite stage. And if you think about it, the internet is great for a lot of things it you know, it opened up the world for more speech and for more entertainers ability to reach out and and find followings created Grand new Industries in terms of entertainment and also wage earners but deep beneath it. There's also quite a lot of negative things that a lot of people would pursue as negative like porn. Bad speech being able to get together to say, you know perform groups for negative things, you know in terms of speech defamation and so forth and so on I can really can go on. And once again, it's a testament to a very astute concept which is hey you have this new item called the internet and there's a lot of good in it and there's a lot of bad in it and it's kind of up to each of us to make sure that song balanced it to and through balancing the two we sort of steer it towards more of its positive use than its negative views and we try and find a way to manage the negative uses. So the positive outweighs the negative But I got to tell you as a someone who was a watcher of Avenue Q actually rather recently. The one thing I I go back to Iraq was again how not only did it take on all of these topics, but it was very timely in doing so for example, it took on the topic of homosexuality and gay marriage back then gay marriage was not popular or constitutional homosexuality..

It's a Saturday the week before the election and we thought this was a great time to talk a little bit about to Broadway shows that have substantially impacted social discourse throughout the years as well as using that as a gateway to sort of talk about the current political landscape and where we Face see I'm headed sound good shape, whatever you want. So the two shows I wanted to use today is one that was came out and around the year nineteen, ninety nine two thousand called Avenue Q show that ran very very long on Broadway and then had such a successful run that it actually transferred to Off-Broadway after birth. And I was even around earlier than that. I think it was actually originated on Off Broadway and made a transition to Broadway. And after that we're going to talk about a show that was on Broadway last year called The Prom and we just heard they're actually making a Netflix movie about it. How's that sound Chase? I'm no I didn't like it very much the prom. What about having a cock you Avenue Q the music is kind of funny, but I haven't seen it. Yeah, so let's start with Avenue Q and then we can transition over to the prom and then sort of, you know, give a segue into what's going on in the world of Broadway and politics today. So what I like to tell people about a new queue is it is a show that was very in tune Not only was it in tuned to its time, but it was also a show that came out at the right moment. Yep. I mean by that is it took heads on you know sexuality racism the internet class system in the world and it had a very very good did a very good job of mixing, you know, what was going on in the world at that moment a slight projection forward in terms of its its message to the crowd and you know mixing that with a very very.

"Hello and welcome to Broadway in politics. I am John and I'm chase then today on Broadway in politics we're GonNa talk about great Broadway Songs Chase. Why don't you start off with naming one of your favorite Broadway songs One of my favorite is. Suddenly Suddenly, Seymour. It's interesting because you may be able to read my mind because suddenly Seymour is definitely one of my favorite songs. It's an absolute classic. What do you like about the song? Or One. Little. Little Fars. One of the greatest shows if not the greatest show ever. At least. That's what we think. 'cause like Wilson to it every day. Basically, we listen to it a lot and we were I was in the show. I played Seymour when I was a kid. and. It was just it's so awesome show. It's creative and it's funny and it's got amazing music angry staging. So almost perfect show and it's a short show. It's two hours which is great too. So doesn't overstay its welcome. Based on a horror movie actually from the nineteen sixties and they took it and they made it a black comedy anyway I agree suddenly Seymour definitely up there as one of the greatest songs, it's definitely probably the greatest duet in my opinion of all Broadway songs. You know it's a love duet between Seymour and Audrey. Bid They basically both realized that they love each other and want to be with each other. Shame she gets eaten right away after that. So I like that You know I'm trying to figure out you know I would say great song that I lake. Well. Why don't we start with. Music of the night from Phantom of the opera. Okay. All my okay really. Again we did one of anthem wants. Phantom there's like sounds like that was one of the that's one of the better songs and Phantom. Like when you compare it to like. Other Broadway show tunes. Go on I wouldn't put it up there. You would not put music of the night up there. Really, it's one of my favorite songs I like the vocal range. I like what it's about..
