"cheetah rivera" Discussed on Design Matters with Debbie Millman

"It's a distinctly theatrical hotel, one that demonstrates a love for the stage in a celebration of the energy history and future of Broadway as nothing in New York has ever done. Has that for a review? I think that's a mic drop right there. Congratulations. Now, I believe that this is the first project of this type of this magnitude that you have done, where you've really looked at every single aspect brought it all together. Can you talk a little bit about what motivated you to create an entire hotel? What I can tell you is, and I don't know if this is true in your work or your observations. But I really believe in long thoughts. I think things don't happen quickly. So I've been thinking for 15 or 20 years about how there's no center to the theater community. The kind of honors all the people that make it and make its own incredible, even though in the book drama, I talk about the importance of ephemeral and impermanence as a design strategy, recognizing things aren't necessarily permanent. The world of design and theater is it happens during the show and that is gone. So I'd been thinking for a long time about restaurants that are kind of watering holes that welcome people in the theater that's in creating a center there. And like most things, this was an opportunity that came along that was a different opportunity. The builder was building this hotel on 48th street just west of 8th. It was a small parking lot. And they came to me saying, we're wondering what kind of hotel this should be. And I said, well, if you want me involved, I think it shouldn't be defined by being a Marriott or a moxie or, you know, a lot of great brands, W, who all hotels we've worked for. But something that is really about its own place and that honors what makes this neighborhood with these 41 amazing theaters totally unique. And they went for it. They said great. So that coming motivated to reach out to many other theater makers and get them excited about it. Find a non for profit partner in this case, it's the American theater wing, which is kind of the biggest tent of the theater world. It includes everyone. And it's been just so inspiring to see, first of all, how designers want to participate and the hotel has about a 350 piece collection called the oleo collection that is constantly rotating and that includes commission pieces in spaces you'd never expect to see artwork, the elevator. The back bar, the rooms, the corridors, and the restaurant and the rooftop bar are opening, I believe the middle of October, they haven't opened yet. I know. So it's just amazing. It's been one of the greatest joys of my life to bring together these three passions and to do it in a way that kind of celebrates people who are not normally celebrated and have it be ever changing. It's like the perfect what I tried to accomplish on the second floor of my garage and deal, but in a beautifully Newark way with amazing creators and collaborators. Civilian is now host to a curated collection of Broadway memorabilia, drawings and photography, including the original polo shirt and cast from Dear Evan Hansen. A pair of red boots from kinky boots. They're staying. Perfume models from she loves me. Shoes from a kiss of the spider woman. From cheetah Rivera. Oh, wow. This is the one that's going to make me get goosebumps just saying it out loud. Alphabet's hat from wicked. Amazing. Dueling pistols from Hamilton from the front. From the original, the off Broadway. Yeah. I believed that some of the memorabilia is in the blue room. Is that correct? Yeah. Where you use your favorite blue, which is a deep purplish hue called urban blue named for the architect and set designer Joseph urban. So what makes that your favorite? I think the depth of the color it feels infinite. It feels both incredibly rich and present and like it just goes on forever. And it is, it is my favorite color. I like many different blues. I was wondering about Yves Klein blue. That felt like it would be a blue. You might like too. Just a couple more questions. I'm wondering if you can talk about the sketches that will be featured of the 41 theaters that make up the Broadway universe. Thank you for asking. So when I first really got on to doing the hotel civilian, there were a number of people I knew needed to be represented. And one was Tony Walton. Who was really one of the truly greats passed away this year. And he's not, it's not only been one of the great designers, but one of the great people and supporters of the theater community. So I went to him, and I said, I'm doing this crazy thing, and he said, well, I don't know if this is helpful, but I have 12 drawings that I did Broadway theaters from decades ago that he did for playbill. Let me send those over. And they were these gesture sketches that perfectly in each case I thought captured what was special about that theater. And of the 41 Broadway theaters, I've worked in 20 of them and had a chance to renovate one of them that the Hayes theater, so I loved the idea that he had taken in what was special about each and I asked if he would complete the collection to have 41. And he said he would love to do that, but just didn't have the brain space to do that. And we sort of brainstormed about it. And then I reached out to every designer, I knew, and they would pick the theater that was most personal to them and do a drawing of them. And those sketches are etched into one foot diameter glass panels with a bronze surround, and they're the light fixtures. So the very fabric of the restaurant is dotted with these 41 backlit fixtures that celebrates why this couldn't happen anywhere else in the world. Wow, that's incredible. I know that you've said lighting is the thing that most hotels get wrong. How did you approach that idea in thinking about this particular kind of lighting? Well, I am obsessed about lighting. And so one of the things that drives me crazy is bad lighting and eating and some of the great little pasta places in Rome were lighting is totally not important. Can you believe how many people use their phones now to look at menus, it drives me crazy. So the way what we tried to do at a civilian relative lighting is start with the most critical of lighting problems and that is lying in bed trying to read and turn the light off from the bed stand. And it's amazing how many designers get that wrong. The light isn't bright enough to read and you can't turn it off. So we started with the rooms and then went to the corridors, which are lined with beautiful custom wallpaper by Isabel and rubella Toledo. Paul taswell and William ivey long. Isabel's dream was to design a Broadway show. Well, thank you for bringing her that. My pleasure. What a loss. Yeah. So in the case of the hall, we lit the photographs in the wallpaper.

"So yeah, her little one has arrived. She's welcome to first baby with her husband, and the couple was recently spotted out on a stroll with their newborn. People confirmed back in September that Lawrence and maroney, who were first linked in June 2018, were expecting their first child together so the couple became engaged in February of 2019 and they tied the knot, the following turbo. So congratulations. Congratulations. We love baby news on the Dory, but congratulations. Now, I know she's the day. This book made me scream. I think with laughter, but also shock and disgust, the Tony Awards has put out a nonviolence policy in the wake of the will's smell. In the wake of the Will Smith slapping Chris Rock incident at the Oscars, this year, the Tony Awards, that's the theater awards you know you know you know. I know my audience, you know you know you know, has included a nonviolence policy in its rules and regulations for the ceremony in New York City on June 12th on CBS. I love the Tony Awards. Oh, it makes me sad that we're at this point, but it also makes me giggle that this won't happen at the Tony Awards Liza Minnelli's not gonna slap cheetah Rivera. Well, you never know. Joe raised not gonna jazz hand you to death? I know. I think it's really sad we're at this point. I think it's also a bit silly, but maybe I'm being a little bit too much of an optimist. Had you asked me 6 months ago if somebody would slap someone at the ask, as I'd say, no, but it happened. So now this is the world. Well, look, you also, you have a hubby who's, you know, got some railway shows. I have somebody slapping Bruce. Welcome to the point we are in our culture where we are given we're given rules we're giving notification that if you do slap somebody at the Tony Awards, there will be consequences. I'm sad we're at this point. Okay, let's end with a moment of rob something. You're going to be a bit more optimistic. So for 20 minutes or so, we try to make you laugh or giggle with celebrity gossip, but for a moment, we're a little bit more serious. This is a quote from my book the forward answer and it really, really stuck with me. It's something that I think about all the time. I guarantee you, I guarantee you, the crueler they are, the more pain they are in. Now, I'm not excusing people's behavior, we've all been verbally attacked emotionally attacked in our lives by somebody really cruel, it might be a family member. It might be somebody you work with. Now moving forward. Think about this. The crueler they are, the more pain they are in. Yeah, and I think by saying that, are you saying that we should sort of understand them then and not really be affected by them? What I'm saying here is that we should know that when we think about how we're going to respond. And I'm not saying it gives anybody a free pass. It does not give people a free pass. But if you know the motivation, if you know where this anger, this cruelty is coming from, it makes your response so much easier because it's not personal. It's not about me. It's about them. It's about the cooler they are, the more pain they are in. Hey, that's it for this week. Thank you so much for listening to the naughty, but nice with rob and quarry show that sounds good.
