"Pay nba parker. I'm a producer here at the cut. But before this humble brag i was a film professor. And i obsessed about every minute beautiful and infuriating thing in film and television to be fair. I still do so. I was recently watching. The netflix. miniseries the queen's gambit because as a former chess club kid. I expected it to be my jam. So i was overjoyed and then befuddled to see the character. Joe lean the protagonists childhood. Bff from the orphanage and black girl. Savior extraordinaire whose entire purpose is to be labeled as difficult while sacrificing huge parts of herself so that the porcelain white girl can play chess and it felt all too familiar to me. It reminded me of this film. I loved as a kid called a little princess dealer. Decent thought i would die till i heard you talk about the magic. I grew up faithfully watching the one thousand nine hundred five version of a little princess by alphonso croissant about a rich orphaned white girl who ends up being a servant all girls school and spencer evenings in the attic with the orphan servant. A little black girl who shares in her daydreams in fantasies but unlike the queen's gambit for this cold where he comes from in a little princess both girls free themselves together and truly become princesses in lace and curls allow to grow up sisters. But still there is this disconnect. The black girls still feels like the friend on the sidelines. Even if she's spunky and nothing awful or bad happens to her. This was the case with a lot of the movies. I grew up on. They all had interruptions of the sweet black sidekick there was also lavender the best friend matilda. It's much better than being out there. And jesse in the babysitters club really an idea might be brilliant. And the most classic example for black kids of the ninety s was a grown man.

I'm not here to complain. I'm just sort of navigating my way. Through this trope. It is not entirely a bad thing at all as a brainy spunky little black kid i loved these characters. I mean. I needed them. One of the first things. I noticed about the next generation is that they have shorty fords. I remember as a little girl. I had like a brown suede hip band. And i used to put it over my eyes. So i could be jordan forge. George soros outspoken introverted. He makes amazing friends. Went the android on this. And i was like. This guy is still gave the nerve babies though cool that is none other than the actress. Zelda harris. When she was ten years old she played one of these classic sidekick characters jesse the only black babysitter in the baby sitters club. I did not grow up reading the baby sitters club books. I read every single one of those books. Jesse was a dancer who always related to her kids. She learned sign language for one of the kids. She babysat and taught dance. Moves and the film adaptation of the baby sitters club was totally formative for me growing up. Zelda definitely plays the sidekick the supporting role to a host of white girls but she also stole scenes left and right dropping like flies. She kinda had to that was what she was given to work with. Not just in the sitters club but in every role she dishes for. I would be bassey token friend but not necessarily get to read for the lead over and over again. Zelda would hit this wall. She knew her potential by casting directors saw her as the bouncy token friend it starts to wear on you as a kid because you have the power nation. You're working in an industry that can make anything happen. You got competence muppets. Cgi and all this stuff going on who still getting very consistent. Message that you're here to support and so okay Yeah the cameras going to be. Set up right here. You're gonna stand on the side. I'm not sure if you're gonna be in this shot. Whoa having mechanic realization was intense. This realization was extra intense for zelda. Because she knew it didn't have to be this way. She started her acting career in the leading role. Her very first film was spike. Lee's crooked where she starred as troy maybe other people with mommy and scream and yell at you can't do. It wasn't all inclusive set with women and people of color where she had the starring role in black and brown film.

Minimalist Backpacks With a Cause
"My name is Kelly from Denver Colorado and I'm the CO owner of adventurous backpack company along with my wife Matilda. Adventurous was previously featured on episode five, twenty, two of side-hustle school back in two, thousand and eighteen. Adventurous backpack though we designed minimalist backpacks with a cause for every backpack sold, we provide twenty-five meals to families in need across the US since adventurous backpack. Oh. was featured on the show back in two thousand, eighteen Matilda and I have both transitioned to running the business full time. So now we're we're both a full employees and owners of adventurist before ice wished I was actually working as a real estate agent but also. Directly before I was working as a lift driver and Matilda was a nanny. We've been fortunate enough to get our backpacks into urban outfitters we've been accepted by feeding America into their enterprise. Society. We've expanded our website adventurous two at Cox Dot Com, and we've been forced a enough to have our backpacks featured in outside magazine Forbes Travel Channel Woman's Day pop sugar and more. I would say that as many businesses are experiencing the you know. Setbacks from covid nineteen right now, that's obviously a big factor in a lot of our decisions and options moving forward since a lot of our retail sales to stores, universities and events have slowed way down. Since the pandemic we've chosen to focus on e commerce and direct to consumer sales, which is really the only avenue we have completely in our control and so we've worked a lot on making. Our website adventurous backpacks dot com as a user friendly as possible, and it's actually ended up being kind of a blessing in disguise because we're now learning how to increase their sales online on our website. Since that's the only thing we're able to do you wish will be even better once all the craziness ends and we're able to continue supplying retail stores in universities with that accident as well. There there are always. Downsides to owning a business with all the freedom that it allows like being able to create your own schedule, go out and hikes and take photos and do something different every day there's also the pressure to to make money because it's a business and if you don't sell your product and you're not able to make money than. Going to be able to grow or continue, and so there's there's definitely a fair amount of stress. You know you try to find ways to cope with the stress but. It definitely can be their state. You have like a slow week of selling backpacks. We can be like, oh no what's what's happening is the you know you can have a tendency to almost overreact, but the truth is as long as you don't panic and you kind of just put in the the work necessary. Even if things are slow at the beginning or even if something goes wrong, there's always a way to overcome that and continue doing what you're doing to make to make it would. Thanks so much Kelly thanks as well to Matilda. The adventurous backpacks team. Now, listeners I always want to encourage you do the thing that is available to you. Win. An obstacle presents itself. Sometimes you can choose to attack it head on or you can say, okay, this is a pretty big obstacle such as cove. Nineteen. And this is affecting my main strategy or it's affecting a lot of what I could do. Let's say a lot of things are outside my control. So what can I do instead? And for the backpack team like focusing on retail stores wasn't a great strategy for twenty twenty they began with with trying to build more retail wholesale relationships, etc. But then obviously, it became quite apparent that that wasn't going to work so well for most of this year. So they changed it up and began paying more attention to their ECOMMERCE model. Now in the future retail may become more important again but the time and attention that they have focused on ecommerce only help them then. So do the thing that is available to you. That's my encouragement to you into myself as well. I. Think there's always a good thing to think about when you're stuck when you encounter obstacles, what can I do now? So much is out of our control what can I do? That is within my control.

The Origins of Pizza As We Know It
"The exact origins of ancient pizza are somewhat murky. Modern pizza definitely has a birthplace. Where you begin to see pizza develop and being called. Pizza is around the seventeenth and eighteenth century in Naples. And what people eight back then that they called pizza was essentially kind of bread with topics baked onto it. Didn't anything like what we might visualize now. As pizza researchers the first thing that neapolitans called pizza had no tomato in fact it was east it flat bread with anything that was on hand. You kinda through whatever you had usually because you didn't have a lot of ingredients so it wasn't unusual for people to consume pizza. Which was just you know crust or bread with maybe bits of fish baked on it or maybe herbs that you gathered from the fields on that would look really different from what we think about. Is Pizza today by the late? Seventeen hundreds Italian dictionaries defined pizza as the word that people in Naples used for. What pretty much everyone else called for. Kacha a yeast. It flat bread topped with oil and herbs and sometimes olives and others salty. Good things like cheese and cured meats. Let what about the tomato at least according to Francisco Eastern flat bread isn't really a pizza until it meets one of the most delicious vegetables ever. Oh God it's actually a fruit but never mind the tomato. I had to get to Naples from central and South America. It arrived at the very end of the fifteen hundreds but it took another century before people regularly eight Europeans were initially a little wary of tomatoes. There was some suspicion they were maybe poisonous but tomatoes planted in the rich volcanic soil in sunny southern Italy were particularly sweet and delicious and someone in Naples had the brilliant idea to take these delicious tomatoes and toss them on their flat bread. Have no idea you know who was the first person to do it but I think it was very much the case like. I just mentioned that people could have through whatever ingredients on hand and someone got this great idea of like. Yeah let slap a few tomatoes on top of the pizza and it caught on at least in Naples. And that's actually the thing you have to understand to understand where the modern pizza came from. Is that Naples? In the seventeen hundreds was the third largest city in Europe and also by far and away the most densely packed city lots of those people in Naples at the time were really poor. They live tightly packed in tiny rooms. Multi-storey buildings and they didn't have running water or kitchens and so they had to buy food on the street. They were eating a lot of things. You could buy hot and hold in your hand. This is how Naples developed a very particular food culture. Naples was famous for its street vendors. Who Walked the city and cried out their wares octopus balls cones of fried anchovy smelt from the bay boiled chestnuts. Chunks Zucchini marinated in vinegar. This fun new food called macaroni. Which of course you can hear about both in our macaroni and cheese episode and also in our Pasta episode although actually macaroni was comparatively speaking expensive. And the very poorest neopolitan have that on Sundays. Pizza was half the price and so people eight slices of IT FOR BREAKFAST. Lunch and dinner remember. Naples is a port town and there were a lot of fishermen there many of them eight plain tomato pizza for breakfast before going out to see. Carol says that's why it's called Marinara and immobile vendor would sell them a chunk of pizza or they would go into a pizzeria and eat standing up. The history of these very first pizzas is actually not super well-documented Carroll says pizza was food for really poor people. And that's not the kind of thing that tends to make the official histories so we don't have a lot of evidence left behind by the very poorest citizens of Naples about what they eat when the eight their first tomato pizza we do have evidence from foreigners who visit Naples and see that well all these people are eating pizza and let me be really clear on this that when I come to Naples and witnessed pizza. They do not think this very enticing or interesting food. International visitors had some choice words. Samuel. Moore's he's The guy who invented the Telegraph he visited Naples in the eighteen. Hundreds and said pizza was a quote species of most nauseating cake covered over with slices of Pomodoro or does sprinkled with little fish and black pepper. And I know not what other ingredients it. Altogether looks like a piece of bread that had been taken wreaking out of the sewer even other Italians. If they weren't from Naples they were usually not pizza. Fans in the late eighteen hundreds of woman journalists called Matilda out described these vendors. Walking around with slices of pizza made from quote dense. Does that Burns but doesn't cook and covered with almost raw tomatoes. She wrote that. This would freeze in the cold and turn yellow in the Sun Eaten by the flies also honestly. Most Italians hadn't even heard of pizza. It's such a rich varied cuisine and people in the North or eating something very different from people in the south people in the center. And I think that certainly was the case where you had most Italians who were living in Italy. If they weren't living in the immediate environs of Naples they were not that aware of this dish called pizza even a visit from the queen of a newly unified Italy who travelled south to Naples in eighteen. Eighty nine that didn't help pizzas popularity but it did give one pizza famous new name. The Legend of the Pizza Margherita. Is that the wave of the Italian king on their visit to Naples really wants to try some local street food. And she's not going to go out in the streets and alleys. And you know. Walk into a pizzeria or buy pizza from a mobile vendor. Which is how most the apologists consumed their pizza? Instead her staff found one of the city's best-known pizza makers and the story goes that he came from his cramped little pizzeria to the palace. She was staying at and made her three pizzas one just with oil one top to a tiny silvery fish fry and one with D'Amato Mozzarella and some torn basil leave. Queen Margherita was enjoying a bit of culinary tourism. She was in Naples and she wanted a taste of what the locals eight the local poor people which meant pizza and she quite enjoyed it. Her staff wrote the pizza maker a lovely. Thank you note saying that. The three pizzas were found to be delicious and in return the pizza maker named one of those three pizzas pizza. Margherita the one with D'Amato Mozzarella and Basil. So everyone assumed. Oh they were. The inventors of the Pizza Margherita now. It's highly likely and I and I think it would be the case. That many other pizzerias also made this type of pizza or some variation there up so I don't think they were the only pizza that made it. I don't use the story I don't think about. The story is illustrative of an authentic. First Pizza Margherita Rather. I think it's an important story that tells us something about food at Italian nationalism. I mean tomato sauce. Mozzarella and Basil Is Red White and green the colors of the relatively new Italian flag but even though a local guy got excited about the new national colours. Pizza Margherita wasn't a national dish. Because pizza was still super-regional it took decades more for other Italians to fall in love with pizza as late as nineteen hundred. All the pizza is in Italy. We're in Naples. There had been one attempt by Neopolitan to open a pizzeria in Rome and it had apparently failed miserably. Strangely the next place pizza takes hold isn't somewhere close to Naples. It's across the ocean. He's definitely catches on next in the United States. Remember Naples was really poor even for Italy which was a really poor country so in the early nineteen hundreds. A lot of NEAPOLITANS emigrated to find work and a lot of them ended up in New York City and they wanted food from home so some started making pizza for their fellow Neopolitan. No one knows who opened the true first pizzeria in the US. But you can still get a slice at the place that calls itself the first in the US Lombardi's which opened in nineteen o five. Because they they wind up being the first ones to get a commercial license to help each and again. It doesn't mean that. No one else is producing. Just means that there's some physical

Warriors: Matilda of Tuscany
"Of Tuscany. Matilda was born in ten. Forty six in Luca Tuscany. She was the daughter of a prominent ruler in northern Italy. When she was just six years old her father was assassinated. Her siblings died soon. After making Mathilde the sole heir to her family's Fortune Matilda's mother then married the Duke of Upper Lorraine an enemy of the Holy Roman Emperor Henry the third in response the Emperor Kidnap Matilda and her mother and brought them to Germany. He kept them as hostages for a year until he eventually reconciled with the Duke. That experience marked the beginning of Matilda's lifelong animosity towards the Holy Roman emperor. Matilda married the Duke Son in ten sixty nine and they had a child who passed away as an infant after that. Matilda move back to Italy with her mother to rule like her father. Matilda was a stringent supporter of the pope. She became close friends with Pope. Gregory the seventh and was involved in his conflict with the emperor when Henry the fourth became holy Roman Emperor. He and Pope Gregory clashed over the power balance of the Holy Roman Empire. Henry pushed to increase the power of the emperor over the clergy insisting that he had the right to appoint new bishops pope. Gregory wanted to preserve his power and excommunicated Henry the pope also passed a resolution that stunted. Henry's power staving. Henry's underlings had no obligation to obey him. Henry feared the possibility of a rebellion. So in the harsh winter of ten seventy seven he made the long journey to Matilda's castle and Canosa to meet Pope Gregory and beg his forgiveness. After being forced to wait in the cold for three days Henry was permitted to enter the gates cook humiliated Henry further. I making him walk barefoot through the snow and kneel at his feet and penance. This became an iconic historical seen right. Matilda's Gregory revoked Henry's excommunication but the conflict didn't end there. Henry was excommunicated two more times for other offenses after his excommunication in ten eighty Matilda remained at war with him for over two decades. Sometimes she would don armor and personally lead her troops into battle. She also helped finance. The pope's military operations Mathilde battled against Henry until his death in eleven o six in their final conflict. Matilda gathered an army of local small landowners. Who were familiar with the territory there? Quick communication gave them an edge over the emperor. Soldiers Matilda herself wrote on the battlefield surrounded by a small group of loyal men. Henry's battalion found difficult terrain and watch towers raining spears at every turn. Though the Imperial Army was strong these small advantages turned the tide in favor of Mathilde allowing her to hold the territory of northern Italy. Not only was she victorious. Mathilde strategy one over several towns to her side united against imperial rule. Henry never put up much of a fight again. Mathilde forced to soldiers to retreat. Whenever she showed up to lead her army she also lets successful sieges of several more cities in ten ninety. Three MATHILDE convinced Emperor Henry Son to rebel against him and seize the crown. Eventually after Henry. The Fourth Death Matilda made peace with the Imperial Establishment. Before passing away and
Jane's Hoya Tour
"I'll have gathered the Hoyas from all around my house and brought the here to take a look at the mall and to give you a guided tour just because most of them are up quite high to look at and talk about the same time so here we are with the hoyas choice and I have. I thought I had thirteen but I think actually two four six eight ten twelve. I actually think less forgotten one which is entirely possible that I have a dozen of these things. Let's Talk I the one that I've had the longest and that is my variegated Julia Canosa which well let's be fair. It's a shadow of its former self. If you listen to the Hoyer episode with Doc Chamberlain you will remember my Hoya. Canosa suffered a terrible fate. which was that a load? Some white completely white leaves to grow. There was a stem. The head completely white leaves on nothing else rather than judiciously. Cutting those off. I decided to leave them to grow. And it suddenly said the plot into a tailspin and I just about about one. She save a single cutting which I then replanted a poll. And this is what I've got now east. Not Dating Site Body's already flowered award and the single cutting has branched into two different stem cells looking reasonably good. Let's just describe this heuer. It's probably the most common hoyer that you see out there. What most people would call the wax clouds or wax flower? Eight Scott the standard luther. Relief that you'll be familiar with in the royal family. I don't exactly what variegation this Kovar is actually cooled by but it's the one with cream edges basically creamy white edges and a kind of a slight silvery splash in the center. The leaves are I would say fairly standard thickness. And they're tiny bit thought furry and it's a very attractive plant and I'm glad to say score really really well if I see any of those white leaves though the first thing I'm GonNa do is get rid of them because as I said before it was bad knees when this happened so this is doing pretty well now now. I think what I'm probably going to do with. This plant is taking cutting come spring because I would like it to push out a bit more have a bit more growth going on the part east during the classic thing. People worry about this but it really is totally normal for Hoyas and in fact many posit scramble and climb about which is putting hanging out completely bare stems with no leaves on them. I and you start to panic and think whereby leaves but what the parts doing really. Well I think it's what he's doing i. I think I've read this somewhere. But pops botanist can confirm this for me. They put out feelers to see whether it's a good place for them to grow and then once bats confirmed that they're happy that little extra ground they've colonized then they start putting up leave so they don't really waste any energy before expanding into new areas. What you'll also notice along the stem of the Hoyer this particular where on many others bumpy bits? which again can be a bit alarming? You might I think you've got scale but he's actually just adventitious roots which Tabu popout and then really sought to grow if they come across anything. That's route that's they can route into so this one's hanging so there's nothing to reach into. Those adventitious roots tend to say quite small. But they're not a problem just just waiting for the opportunity to route into something. So that's my hair. Canossa the flowers on this sort of Shell pink furry the thing that got me into Hoyas in the first place because just are so unusual gorgeous and they fly quite easily as I've already said so. Yep The flowers are great is the the foliage is great. It's a really lovely plant and if you have only one then on also is a good choice. It's easy to get hold of two which is not true of all who the WHO is. We're GONNA talk about today okay from the sublime to the ridiculous we're gonNA look at Hoya. Linear ours now. Now if you remember this specimen of mine mine came from James Wall as cutting when I visited his place. And it's done really well I'm going to take a lot of cuttings off this plot and yet it's still quite big and lush now. Relatively speaking given how long have had it. It is very very dry right now. I think I need to give this good water because it's starting to get that kind of very dull. Look that plants get when they are in need of some drinking and it's also quite like to pick up so I know that it is I plant and and this will be reported in the spring because I can see lots of routes coming through the bottom of the pulse. What I love about hoyle any are as well as suggests? The leaves are really unusual there about four centimeters long couple of inches long. I'd say and they look like run a beans or you don't call them Wanna beans in the. US been like a what you call runner beans in the US. I've forgotten green beans that look at me like green beans jeans and they're they're actually rolled in on themselves and you get a little grooved on the center and there were other softly. Furry they come out outs either side of the note and you get these long strings hanging down and they really do look very different from any other horror that you'll come across I guess stat. That adaptation is so that they can preserve water and this horrid doesn't like to be kept on the dry side we'll find with the stems on this one is that it does produce juice leave straight away unlike the con- Osa but it tends to grow stems until they get heavy enough to start trailing down so you end up with this effect. We've got kind of arms reaching up and then gradually they will drop down as the plant matures and they get long enough that they start to hang the flowers on this one. They tend to flower for me any way towards the end of the summer during autumn time and the flowers on this lovely scent which is comes into its own about seven o'clock in the evening this smell Eleni buttery mini smell really delicious and the flowers a really horrible. They are pure white and they tend to be visible among the clusters of leaves again. This is reason to have this plot hanging because it does look really great when viewed from below. I'm now this one in places like India and Nepal and it's not the easiest of course. I've never had any problems with it. But if you have a feeling that you and the person who gives the plant too much water you made strong with this one so just take care of the water inside and make sure it's really well drained but yeah. This is one of my absolute absolute favorites and would be without that particular one more talk about and that is where Matilda now. This is actually a hybrid. It's across between Serb hanes and we're con Osa and this one came to cutting. I can't remember who gave this to me. I think it was us on a UK. HOUSEPLANTS facebook group. But again if you are going to grow start off with and he wants in court easy to get going with I think Matilda Sabrina good choice. This plot has small roundish oval leaves with silver splashing on them. I mean it's hard degeneracy toys because the league shake dust change. I find that sometimes the leaf leaves can be quite elongated and then the ones quite oval and that changes us the leaf as a stem matures. This will hasn't flowered yet but I just love the look of it. It's it's actually desperately in need this. One of being trained around the hoops of I can really enjoy the foliage up close. The flight was on this. One looks very much like Canosa except the flowers are white and fuzzy rather than Pale pink and fuzzy according to winstrom unstained this flows early and often so on still waiting by flowers gonNA hoping that they will come fairly soon but even if it never flowered I think I would still be in love with this planet. Really really beautiful. I- propagated cutting of this using the hottest tub technique. Thanks to Sully Williams or for highlighting that brilliant technique for me. And it won't really well for this plant. The only thing is you end up with roots coming from every node. So what I would do. What is rooted is late on some compost and allow it to route? But it's really easy. Plant ICAGO wrong with this and apparently the scent is quite like Hokkaido. Sir I have never got any sense to all of my work so that's not very informative but I'm not worried about the scent. I think it is beautiful flowers. And that's quite enough for

Tony Awards Preview
"Hi, everybody. It's Peter Travers than welcome to our special popcorn Tony award show. Now, I've gotta say, before we get into the nominees about who will win and who should win. This is been the most amazing year in Broadway history. It has made over two billion dollars at the box office that never happened. And why is it? I think it's Hollywood heat everybody from TV from movies from us. It wants to be on Broadway. They wanna be on that stage. You got this year. Kylo Ren and driver on Broadway. You have Walter, white Bryan, Cranston, there, Jeff Daniels who played Harry done in too, dumb and dumber movies. They're all fighting to be best, dramatic actor, what kind of stuff is happening on Broadway. Well, let's start with the major categories, and I'm gonna start with best musical the nominees are ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Beetlejuice remember that movie Haiti's town, the prom, and Tootsie. You remember that movie too? Well. I think the winner is Haiti's town. It's a rigid. It's basically the myth of Orpheus ritzy, but it's got a score by a woman named Naess Mitchell who doesn't come from Broadway, at all and kind of revolutionizes it. So what would happen what could spoil the fun? There's a little musical called the prom. It's really it's totally original. It's about these bunch of Broadway veterans, and they're really hard bitten, and they're not getting any press, and they decide to go to Indiana and help, a lesbian high school student take her girlfriend to the prom. That's it. How good is it? It's really good. And in terms of the Hollywood connection, Ryan Murphy, went to see it fell in love with it, and he's making a movie of it. So how about that? Then we have best play the Ferryman choirboy, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus. What the constitution means to me an ink. I'm telling you people, the Ferryman is got to be a movie soon. It's an Irish play. It's about the troubles, and in on a stage. We get to see an entire family deal with violence deal with their own feuds. We've got babies onstage. We've got live alive goose. We have everything there's nothing like I don't think there's any competition for it at all except there was a snub, the most successful play in Broadway history. That's not a musical is to kill among bird, and for some reason, the Tony nominee said, let's not nominated what I want. Answer on that one best revival of a play. Arthur, Miller's all my sons the boys in the band, burn this torch song and the Waverley gallery. I think Arthur Miller's all my sons which brought a net. Bending back to Broadway is a show that he wrote in one thousand nine hundred forty seven a bout a guy who was manufacturing airplane, parts and was to rush to do it. And so the planes crashed and killed pilots during the war. We live in the world of Boeing. Now, how timely could this be? So I think that's really up there. And I in terms of seeing a show that by playwright Arthur Miller who says, let's deal with the world we live in this one really, really did it then we have bible of musical. This is easy, because there's only two there's Oklahoma Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and kiss me. Kate. Of course, they were both movies. We saw Oklahoma with Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones in the fifties. But kiss me, Kate is done in a traditional way. Kelli o'hara's in it, Oklahoma is directed by guide named Daniel fish who find darkness. We're Rogers and Hammerstein only found light. It's a revelation to watch this. It's not the Oklahoma you've ever remembered, and it sung in the kind of country western way, look, if you ever get to see this on Broadway or win a tours get there get there quick. Okay. Okay. Best actor in a musical. And so, we'll do alphabetically Brooks as Mantas in the prom, Derrick Baskin and ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Alex Brightman and Beetlejuice. Remember when Michael Keaton had their part, Damon down, oh in Rogers and Hammerstein, Oklahoma. And send Tino fun Tanna into okay? The favorite is Tino, Tanna who is playing the part that destined Hoffman immortalized in the movie in the nineteen eighties. But what Centeno Tanna doesn't remember him on TV in crazy ex girlfriend like I'm saying everybody's from TV, or he does so much more. He sings as a man sees a woman, he does physical comedy does everything but stand on his hat. And I say, you know, who's out there that can spoil the win for Santino Tanna. And my answer is no one because this is one of the great performances you'll ever see on a musical, comedy stage. He's the winner. Best actress in a play Benning in Arthur, Miller's all my sons, Laura, Donnelly, in the Ferryman. Elaine may in the Waverley gallery, Janet mcteer in Bernhardt hamlet, Laurie Metcalf in Hillary Clinton, and Heidi Shreck in what the constitution means to me. Okay. Elaine may doesn't win this Tony. You're going to hear from me. She's eighty seven years old. She's returned to Broadway. After decades to play the part of a woman fighting Alzheimer's, and everything is no perfect about what she's done. She started with Mike Nichols doing comedy. She was starring in movies of like the new leaf directed things like the heartbreak kid. She's just one of the best actors I've ever seen anywhere. And if she loses and, you know, I feel bad for an bending because if Elaine may wasn't here this year, I think she would be the winner, but come on. Attention must be paid people. And I also wanna talk about a snub how. How does Glenda Jackson who won the Tony last year for three women returned to Broadway as King Lear? We talk about the age of hashtag metoo and time's up Glenda. Jackson is playing king. Lear gets rave reviews and the Tony committee says we're not gonna nominate her now. No, we're paying attention. And we're gonna come back and get you our best actress in a musical. Stephanie, j block in the share show Caitlyn Kanoun in the prom Beth level, in the prom, Eva nobles, ADA in Haiti's town, and Kelley O'Hara and kiss me cake. Stephanie j block who is that theater veteran is playing share in a way that sometimes she's more share than share. You might think this is just an escapist show thing to know she finds the character of who she is share shows up at this show often does numbers with her, and pus share. There's who's a bigger Hollywood. Name who is coming to Broadway with the show about herself. It takes three actresses to play here. But Stephanie j block plays the central one. And she plays the hell out of it. So she has just got to win. I'm sorry, people. All right. Best featured actress in a play for new of Flanagan in the Ferryman seal, you keep. And Bolger into kill a Mockingbird. Christine Nelson, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Julie white and Gary sequel to Titus andronicus and Ruth Wilson and King Lear people if you see if you see to kill among bird, and you should seal, you Keenan Bolger is very controversial because she's playing scout scout in the book and in the movie remember is in eight or nine year old girl. A C Keenan Bolger is in her forties. And yet, what she finds in this character who grew up to be Harper who wrote this novel is the heart and soul of the peace. So I'm telling you people this, this has got to happen. See Keenan Bolger remember that name best featured actor in a play birdie Carville and ink, Robin to hasten boys in the band getting Glick into kill a monkey bird, Brandon your Ranna wits in burn this Benjamin Walker in Arthur Miller's. All my sons birdie, Carville in ink. Those of us, those of you who actually went to Broadway couple of years ago and saw of any kind of a musical where you were shocked at a man playing a woman, you saw birdie, Carville in Matilda, and he played this woman, this horrible headmistress, and now he's playing Rupert Murdoch. So every who in Hollywood, who in politics would anyone hasn't been in an Rupert Murdoch publication or paper and who hasn't been rolled over the coals in it that performance and in London when he played it in one and Olivia ward, he had to play it in front of Rupert Murdoch. It's just an incredible job. I wanna talk a little about the snubs in this category. The non nominees there isn't actor named Bengal Arghanab into Killa mugging bird who plays Tom Robinson. He is the black man who is on trial for raping a white woman, a crime never committed. And he's defended. By Jeff Daniels. Atticus Finch when Aaron Sorkin adapted Harper Lee's novel to the stage. He did it so that he could expand the role of the black characters as he did here. And again, the Tony committee, decided only to nominate the white actors from tequila, Mockingbird ignoring the two black actors who are just brilliant in their roles. You people you're going to get called on the carpet. You need to all right? Best featured actress in a musical, Lilli Cooper in Tootsie, amber, gray and Haiti's town Sarah, styles Tootsie, alley stroke, or in Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and Mary, Testa in Rogers, and Hammerstein Oklahoma there, something totally remarkable that happened this year in stroke, and Oklahoma. This is a woman who when she was two years old was in an automobile crash, and was never able to walk again. And now on Broadway playing eight oh Anne who is like the sexual. Time bomb in Oklahoma, the one who sings, I can't say, no, the part went to Allie. Stroke, she plays it in a wheelchair and you would think that's inspiring enough. But when you watch her play at you, forget the wheelchair exists, and you're watching her take over the stage like Dolly Parton. She, it's just an amazing thing to watch and it works on so many levels. So I wanna be there when she wins that Tony, and I want to be standing up and applauding and going Bravo. She deserves all right. Best featured actor in a musical Andre shields in Haiti town and a groups Luccin. That's a good name into Patrick page in Haiti's town germy, pope in into proud the life and times of the temptations and Ephraim Sykes ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations, the favorite, the one, I think will win is under the shields and Haiti's town. He's seventy three years old. He stands on that stage is the narrator in like a silver suit. In total control of body and every movement and pulls you in till you're memorized. Your mesmerizing you not take your eyes off of hundred shields. This is a veteran actor who needs to get this Tony. But what if he didn't who would go to there's a young actor named Jeremy pope who plays Eddie kendricks in the into proud the life and times of the temptations? And who does he's playing a difficult man. One of the most difficult of the temptations. But one of the most talented as well. He's also nominated this year as best actor in a in a play in choir, boy, this is to me, the brightest newcomer that you will see on the stage and you're going to see him everywhere, stage movies television. It's just the beginning. So if you get to see this, you're going to be able to tell your friends, I was there win. Okay. Best director of a play Rupert Gould for Inc. Sam Mendes for the Ferryman Bartlett. Fair for to kill a mocking bird Ivo von Hosver for network, and George C Wolfer Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Sam Mendis in the Ferryman this play. Does a job on stage that equal to his first movie which was American Beauty, which you may remember won the best picture? Oscar and once Mendis the Oscar as best director.

"Anyway i think one of the things that i also wanted to talk about was the character of miss honey specifically what are your thoughts on this character we'll eat besides that she's like matilda groan groans up well do you feel about her yes she's a little blend for may she's a bit of a demise yeah here's the thing the problem with saintly characters yeah let me hearing best impression ms honey guys ready ready what what did you like it's just so it's so soft to the sometimes i'm like did that feather land yeah with speak yeah i mean papers thin but i think that's also why it's it's such a like matilda sees like a fragile nece there like is a she's a plot device for mitchell bigger out she means to step up she had to be so like defeat but his hotel as i knew for sure and i think that's why they had to work together like they made it so that the movie neither of them could do it by themselves it's like she had to have yeah information from her and like the heartbreak that she heard for miss honey and matilda have the powers to get the ship that miss honey couldn't but she also needed the softness of miss honey of espn's no other adults to turn winning the librarian and lines or her dad in her dad is the only person is given the powers but she slammed the door on it like this when the door slammed on him i really liked because i just thought like visually it was so cool like she finally figured it out yeah let me yet and it was just enough to slammed.

"Second second but it's still early but what i'm saying is we we're seeing this movie through the perspective mathilde not through misiones so because of that we don't actually see matilda witness of victory we are we here are a of the green from yeah trunk will we hear about it and that's to me that's the issue yeah i agree that that is true what what she did but even just one moment beat the tossing of the kid or the chocolate eating thing or whatever just one moment where you're like oh wow we are in a horrible institution and there is no fighting back and then if matilda didn't strike back in some way even it was just a matter of like if after that happened and the the school fell silent and we're all looking up at the scary woman matilda said something like that's not right what you did and then she turns to her and says what did you say and then suddenly then she becomes a target then it's a sort of like oh no it's really going to get it she spoke from of innocence but that never really happens instead what happens is every time trench to get something of a victory like you said it gets pulled back and so because of that to me it just sort of wilkin weakens her like villainous so like if you compare it to like a movie like or book like one flew over the cuckoo's nest she is affected the same characters nurse ratchet nurse ratchet is horrible and she uses the institution to her advantage and that's like i would have liked to seen that to you see i want to see the kids complaining to the school board and the school board not believing them but i think they they say that they've talked to their parents about it in their parents but we don't see it that's my issue is the number one role of movie making his show and then there's always getting.

"Hyperventilating in like feeling like the dripping water on them like all the things that they were they were complaining about what a question of rating like it might have been a problem for them to make went too far it would end up being a pg thirteen movie and then no one's gonna see it maybe but i do feel that you could be right and that might be it but for me it's like because these things keep happening and she is horrible it's like she is tormented these poor kids that seem she makes that kid eat the entire chocolate states such an epic sequel has brutal that's okay but and it's horrifying wait wait you jumping around and i just gotta say like these the things you're talking about though are the reasons why we all still think about majeste yeah those are the it's because i know the choky like but here's here's the thing i know the cat no point here's my issue at the movie at no point so okay trump bull is the villain she's the tag tagore at no point does she really get a satisfying victory and because of that to me it diminishes matilda's victory at the end okay so because you don't actually so france yeah in the ms bailing if you watched the chocolate cake eating scene and imagine if they didn't all stand up and cheer and instead that poor it out or something horrible like that.

"I felt the look i felt like there's some moments where she's just kind of a butthole well also she'd six don't get me wrong she she's definitely the victim in this in this story however i think my issue with with the movie overall is it is it's two things one it's it's an institutionalized movie so it's very much the same vein as one flew over the cuckoo's nest the difference though is one floor of the kuka's nest goes there to the point where like your hero is like dragged to the bottom of the sea and you're like oh my goodness this movie sort of dabbles in that i know he can't go too dark because it is however there are other children's and this is one of things that i brought up before we started recording there are others of children's maybe not movies but like other books and i was talking about this book that i read when i was in school called the chocolate war that is this very dark book that is for kids and that that is you know in a prep school and the things that happened to this main character and if you guys are familiar with this book it's a great book but the things happened as character are so awful and then he never really gets an opportunity for his come up like there is a sort of resolution at the end of that book which is which is satisfying in its own way but what this movie is ultimately the engine of this movie is it's a revenge movie yeah and i noticed that for the first time last night for me my issue with it is the revenge would've been much more satisfying if the stakes were higher and the way to make the stakes higher is if matilda had a much harder time than she did.
