Mike's Hit and Misses in Latest Theatre Shows

"Speaking of planets, I don't often criticize shows that I see, but if you're looking for a Broadway show, you may think twice before you shell out a hundred or a 150 bucks to see the little prince on Broadway. Oh, painful. Painful. Remember the little prince, the book about the little, if it was a weird book, I remember when I was a kid, I read it. I thought, well, that kind of sounds kind of neat. I acrobats and stuff. I did a Broadway weekend, so I'll get ready for theater because I'm going to Dallas Friday to start rehearsals for a funny thing happened on the way to the forum. I'm going to play suitless in that Steven Sondheim classic. It's a very funny show. So I decided to get some theater in my system. I'm a big Mitt, a big mess with little prince on Broadway. A hit with Billy Crystal and mister Saturday night. He's back on Broadway. And he can't even sing and it's still a great musical. It's pretty cool. He doesn't need this thing. He's Billy Crystal. Who cares if he misses the notes? And I was in the front row. It was wild. To be that close and some great, great performances and just a neat story. Remember the movie? Buddy young junior wasn't a big commercial hit, but hope it'll be a Broadway hit for Billy Crystal and then finally moulin rouge, which is one of the still one of the hottest tickets on Broadway.

"For a theater geek like me like me. Last night was the like the super bowl because it was the tony awards. I've got a friend in moulin rouge actually a few friends in moulin rouge and moulin rouge the musical. The huge winner. I was really really excited for danny burstein. Zeya a new york actor.

His wife got ls and both of them got cove head and she died last december. This past december. So he's back on stage with moulin rouge. He won his first. Tony award very gracious speech. And there's a huge controversy about the play side not the musical side you got you got musicals and you got you got plays right and the play that was expected to clean up at. The tonys was a play called slave plane. I know people who saw it and said it was a incoherent mess. It's just. I don't even know what it's about something about. It's all woke stuff about race. It's race and sexuality and you know a lot of people. I know roy just didn't like it at all but you know the woke crowd of new york being the wo- crowd it was nominated for. I think i think twelve tony awards. It was completely shut out. It didn't win a single tony so now of course come the accusations that the tony select selection committee is racist. Because everything's got to be racist. Everything is a lack of diversity. Everything about And of course. New york's broadway community is about the most diverse community in the world. But it's not enough for the woke crowd

"The movie wasn't set now really. She would have just gone to a doctor. Got an x ray. Got medicine much less sweeping. Perhaps right. But i like endings where everybody lives so the thing about this movie that resonated most with me today in terms of like from our youth to now is as we were watching it Now it occurred to me. How many times. I listened to the soundtrack. Yeah yeah that that was definitely on heavy rotation. That cd was on heavy rotation in your car. Mom's car mike. I was obsessed with it and all of the songs not just like everybody. I think when you think of moulin rose you think of lady marmalade the the song that sort of because the music video came out and it was huge and that sort of typified movie. Like as i was watching that whole fricken soundtrack. I listened to yeah except for roxanne. I used to skip roxana lot. I got into that one. He use upset me when i came on like the big group dance. Maybe that's why i liked it. It's always a big choreographed number. Well it's a pretty number and like the the you and mcgregor part over top. I mean it's all beautiful arrangement. But i think i found the i dunno. I found it a little too raw to listen to on a cd. but but the The elephant love medley was always so. He's my favorite on the cd. Oh yes stand out for me yes yes how. There is a certain age of people who have that entire thing memorized and periodically. Or just you know kind of in their head doing it racist like going through that like yeah I did tell you all before we started that. Version of lady marmalade. that's christina. Aguilera was the only one i thought existed for a long time. Because i've seen this movie. I think once in my life in my distant memory and for some reason that is the one song that i remember also the only version of the song i thought i thought it was christine anglers. It's so weird culturally with because of that came out. I mean it's era but it's also paying it's my little cam and it was such a big deal that how there's like four divas that are performing in the same song together coexisted in the same space like we were just so broken in our perception of women entertainers like. Oh wow they're all gonna fight. Probably right well and stories came out like that right because i remember and i don't know if any of this is true like some sort of story about like christine manager coming in and being like what's the biggest part that's christina's that's when i remember these like and they may all be fake but there were there. Were all these stories about them. Like fighting over the biggest role. And all this. And i mean you know who knows. Probably all of those made up. Yeah the soundtrack is wonderful. an i you know you called it a duke box musical which it is and i hadn't even thought of it that way but was i mean this was before what mama mia obviously like. What is was this like. One of the first probably like definite jukebox musicals. I don't say the first. Because i don't know well i certainly don't think being made like this right moment. Like many of them because mama mia was predates it on as show right. It's not. I didn't realize that i thought the musical but as a i mean you know i. It was one of those like movie musicals. Go away and then everybody remembers like we're all trying to be coal but we're cheesy..

Getting married it was just so busy getting married anyway. Speaking of love stories. Oh look at that transition. Yeah we're talking about moulin rouge this week Taylor you've chosen moulin rouge for us to discuss. Why why was this your pick it well. It was a i mean. why wouldn't it be it. The movie jukebox musical from two thousand one by basler men. It is like eye candy just like bright colors beautiful costumes like cool dance routines fund songs. It's just a visual feast and that is very much up my alley. Do you feel like i see. It's funny because of the like of the movies of that time period. I would have chosen like romeo and juliet as the one that was more culturally significant to may not necessarily better just like the one that i latched onto. Do you feel like moulin rouge was that for you. I think so. Yeah Because i don't know i mean. Romeo and juliet was very director and it had a similar aesthetic. But i feel like moulin. Rouge was kind of turn it up to the tenth degree and it's also fantasy to certain degree you know it's like it's not any less i mean it's i guess it's somewhat less of a sad ending but It's still just such a step like cartoon in live action. It we really is. it was part of. Did you know that this is part of the red curtain trilogy. I didn't know this Strictly ballroom and romeo and juliet. Nature kind of senator around the different focus. So this was song instantly. Ballrooms dance and juliette is poetry theatre later. Yeah yeah i didn't. I didn't know that.

"So it kind of takes me out of it a little bit whereas if they had written original piece. I would be immersed in the visuals audio and not thinking about. oh yeah. the lyric is from this song. Because that's not a lot. But i have to It's not watching them. But a lot of this stuff only recognize. If i'm being honest about half the songs so like i give up pretty quick. There are some things like you know. Like mama mia was like. Oh yeah i know but like this is the i you know who i had. No i'd never heard until. I heard the song unit nat king cole's nature boy. So right there's a bunch of here there's a there's a couple of classic rock and i mean the he'd like there's like fifty different songs in that love montage where like. She's trying to argue that like she's just as a strictly business type of girl and he's like but what about love. They must pull like the chorus lines from fifty different songs ban. The ham one point. It's in this isn't do. Maybe the most thing in the entire movie is gonna get you in mcgregor to sing a line of winnie. Houston's fuck what is the name of that song blanking. I will always love you. The bodyguard one game. They try and get him to do a. We switch. Bring us this morning we did. Yeah the ones. What the hell can you any names They pull it off reasonably well but it's not waiting. Houston come on. There's you mentioned about this. This movie being very funny. It's funny in a very kind of three stooges almost slapstick. Kind of way. Where it's like. It's all about mistaken identity that then just keeps compounding and compounding and that mistaken identity led to this awkward situation that it's it's not like really sophisticated verbal wordplay or things like it's it's more of just like very broad situational humor but like he there's no he has. There's no shame this movie hasn't any of like it's essentially awesome you know. What a lot of the comedies. Like austin powers Like holding grapefruits in front of his dick kind of style stuff Lake you know guy spying on set with telescope thinking you see in one thing and seeing something else and beans zach kind of laughs. But they. I don't know. I think they're really funny. Especially since they are like nicole kidman goes for fucking broke on. This sheet says christ that elephants seen man. She's doing her like You know trilling in yipping like a little fox and it's like.

Thank you. Yeah. Now, congratulations to you all forgetting your rolls. This is very exciting. Tell us about the audition process because the one for rent way back in the nineties was. It was a bit of a cattle call and seriously at Kinsella's in Oxford Street, the line just went rule the way down. Um, the end on bond. I didn't have to wait in the cattle cool to just go past everyone, but I still had to audition regardless of what my credentials were. Tell us about. Your own audition process. Was it grueling? And is it growing? You've got the longest you've been out of the longest. Yes, the tomorrows. Musical audition process was grueling because it was different. When I started auditioning, I think most of my auditions were on zoom. That was very kind of confronting to me. Especially being a musical audition, where you really want to be in the room and show you your physicality and work off another kind of human being. Um, So that was it was it was grueling, and it was long and it was. It was quite a few callbacks on Ben.

"I liked it. I didn't like it as much as roxanne. Which was i thought. Forms credit island elephant love. Medley that's number one to me in the whole thing. But i did like it. I feel like it was a week or saukville. If i'm but i do get. I do get the message behind it and i think it's really pretty but i have a question about this. This one woman in the movie who confused me so much. I don't know if i miss something. But this random lady places herself as a villain in the film in the middle of it when the duke is sitting and watching team perform she whispers in his ear and basically the whole plot of the film. Why where did she call you like. Why would she like the penniless writer. Oops i mean player. She just shows up. She drops a buyer. Leaney's fairly names nina. I didn't know that i not get that. I miss something that like. What is he just a single volley if you really wanna make your point Later in the film she helps them not die right. She went to his pass. No here's what i think. It is marcus you have not been. You're not a stage performer. The people on that stage for a musical theater drama club. When we're doing that play and we're all friends right. We all out at the same school but we all have bitter rivalries because that person got our part at that person. Did this think about high school. Musical right thing about fucking sharpei and gabriella and troy in like fuck in ryan although that's really how it is in high school markets. Imagine what it's like in a professional setting. I have so many people that are my friends in the acting sphere. That would stab me in the back of. I always god jesus. It's like start smelling blood in the water. That's exactly what it is. Here's the thing these people are also like. They're also sex workers so there's also another added thing on top. That's just like this dichotomy. Yeah she's the number one right like she's getting the best money in the best attention means like i can dance better than her. She probably thinks she can sing better than her. She probably thinks she's prettier than her. She's like why the fuck team get everything. Yeah that's totally why. I assumed that was why but yeah but from a film is endpoint. It is comical nowhere. Bad from a writing standpoint. I think they've made the duke too stupid and they're like fuck. How are we going to reveal this. Oh just someone's jealously they show up and they're going to be johnson reveal it. I totally get that. But honestly the findings characters is one where his like stupidity of it all like totally like just reinforces his like i forget. What the psychology term. But it's like ineffective forever infant fitness syndrome. Like what what is it. You know what. I'm saying like boy child man syndrome alvin syndrome. Yeah he has totally is why he's like so he literally takes the boy the guy that picnic each has lighter on a picnic. I saw also. Yeah their whole thing..

"Know i i've always loved the song i've set stupid story. I had a girlfriend in high school also in the musical so she also loved one. Route broke up with her. Sarah sad she was but she. She told me right after that she was going to ask me to sing. Come what may with her with her in the talent show but i had broken up with her too quickly before the talent show so you got rid of her talent show. Then you broke up with her. After you guys won the talent show. That would have been great now. I performed the talent show into other things i saying rent in. I did some acting thing but she saying it with another guy. oh drive. But here's the thing. I didn't feel any type of way about it but you know why because you didn't care about her. No they were awful they were. It was so bad words. Rendition of the song. I've ever heard of but anyway so in the movie everything quiets down for the third time teams like teams like no. We have to the issues that we can do. This and can't do this and christian again says we'll make up. We'll make a little song in like the way they sing. It never noticed this before but the way they i. Maybe it's because when. I saw it as a kid. I never had these but now as an adult. When you're in a relationship you do make up little say right and little things you say with your significant other. Yeah like little like you always say okay to each other or you. Might you know. Whisper my love in a certain way or you might be like always yours sign off you know like morally. Yeah inside jolie something like that. Yeah and that's exactly what this song is. I didn't realize that as a kid. But now as washing a seeing how they were interacting about it and like wing her but like seventy alone in an even when they are singing the song out in the world and even in the moment of the end of the film when it was this big moment of komo may. It's still felt like the intimacy that had made when they made up the song and i never noticed that before and i just wanted to point out how much i love. I love song always but how how honestly now as an adult now be having been in love so many times you know i i appreciate it away more which is weird for me because usually films like this where it's like listen. I know it's not a perfect balance of film for my childhood. Guess store there's sometimes there's some as misogyny enzymes. There's some sexism And older film. And we kinda gotta take the good with the bad but for something new to resume in. An older film was really nice for me. Like i lost her hand on. I what you wanna hough the all. He's coming back there is. He came back. He made it back. Let's see how long it takes them to realize. Yeah give it a second. Because everyone had a refresh the stream is watching. You gotta gotta gotta gotta well. You know what that's more ad revenue for us. I was gonna say on your point of massage envy and all that stuff. It's interesting that they cast little people but the one little person with a speaking role is played by john. Leguizamo not perfect. This movie is this person by the way. That's based on a real person to really like a real painter and some throughout the film is different. Won't speaking like see his art. That's cool yeah. Okay nick. you're gonna make a point about just a what you think that's all i know it was great i am the whole thing was great..

"This is sort of lighting thing. But it's hard to get stage lighting totally correct. You know steven spielberg. You can see it in the trailer for west side story. Yeah can tell like. He's like he's like not a lot of directors can do that like really push it like. It's the actual. Yes see this bill. One of them baas lerman is another. It's hard to sometimes make that sort of thing. Pop you know. Sometimes you get into feeling flat when you film performed but yeah it just it worked really well the directing these good. This is great. shot composition. Just like every every part of this film is very well-crafted and the fucking argentinian who this movie has been as cookie. Zany nobody ass in this. He comes in with this robust me. To tell you love is and jealousy gotti fucking death or go to that scene and it's just so perfect like taking you pox music concept than making taking a song like okay. We're gonna fix it narrative we're gonna make sense. The creepy wavy sang lak- virgin. I guess they didn't really sing. Talked it but you know. He spoke as so funny. So greg aversion so well for the very first time philly and it's goofy every time it happens a creepy but with vaccine if you like it felt power hole and it made song. He made the song. New breeds a new life into the song you know. In the way mcgregor's character was singing his like little stands stanzas inbetween them and was like logging and sausa- teen and they kept going back and forth Owned the dance right. The diamond dog late the girls. I don't know if she has a name in the movie. But she's like in the background but she does this stance and then the lighting on her is she looks to another guy and argentinian crabs. Sir it's such a great dance and really has yeah. I mean it's so incredible to see. I think it's also just a good song. Like i don't know if you were familiar at and before the movie but of course of course i was person now. I've heard it. And i think it'd be missing something missing. I feel like is missing tango. Grit yeah yeah but like down here like this. Jukebox musicals are just sometimes can be so boring. And like i said earlier ends up being fucking cover. You know it's just like i'm gonna watch a bunch of people who can sing. Well do covers and i don't if i wanted to do that like i just. I don't covers general. Yeah but the the same problem. I have with covers this movie addresses right like the. If you're bringing something new you bringing something unique. You're bringing your own style to a song. Then then that's great. That's something that takes artistry and talent and is what they do here totally. And then. And then i do wanna just also mention because there again. There's one original song. Come what may and i. I don't.

"Yeah and it's like sexy and sensual also like sincere like the look center face when she's like literally saying i was describing earlier like he's saying all you need is love and she's like well what about what about the rest of the world he's like. Yeah but love. And she's like yeah like things are hard in the world and like this. This is my fail. And he's like yaba love he's like nope it's hard you're gonna hate me up. And he you gabbert love and then she's like okay but love and that like back and forth like a really sold me this time watching even now as an adult. It's charming and their chemistry is great. Like the play off of each other very well since you're actors and they're both like very talented at acting and their prime. It's weird to watch a movie at reminds you that acting is like a job or that. It's hard or if it's like it's like you have to like it. Takes a good actor to meld into the character and portrays someone different onscreen. You know like not no fence against iraq. I love the rock. The rock is always the rock in every movie. I think i think also watching the now. I i realized this is style of acting. That's out now. That i mean it's it's good enough. Thank you ran for one four. She it'd be love you and we love everything you do your number one advantage that we yeah nine fourteen two was. That's up presidential. Time's up your title. So much acting now is just like i feel like it just feels like standing around right. Yeah but they're acting but it doesn't feel like campy feels like real like they're being emotional feels like they don't let people be emotional anymore the way they are in this movie and everything else is so high in that the room they have to play wider. Right it's bigger. They have more of a breath. The show emotions because of randy does the movie is and it really shows especially during the scene but also through all of the scenes during all musical numbers. All their lovemaking scenes. Everything i think. How crazy and serve kooky silly. This is like that a that works for musical theater. That is kind of the body of people involved in musical theater. You can only get it musical theater. Yeah you can only really silly and also serious in the same film like it's it's hard to hard thing to pull off. Not a lot of directors can pull it off by musical theater. It's something that's common now. I just just a little aside. I just i just always have to remind you and everybody about how little i know eh knew about music. So your song. I didn't know was an ellen. John song for like fifteen years. All the songs in elephant love medley. I still don't know where all of them were so much. And here's the thing the only original song here's come. What may everything else was. Pulled from somewhere else something else other. Kind of maelstrom combination. Which is so cool. By the way. I love to hear your thoughts on that. But i didn't like i didn't know nirvana was in this movie to like seventy eight and i was like whoa. That's nirvana i heard it for moulin. Rouge that's hilarious. But what do you think about a musical. A modern musical taking like it happens more now because now we've seen glee at like glee smashed. All these things wouldn't exist. Yeah but it's funny because jukebox musicals are totally thing now right like so many people i've seen so many of them and it's much but yes d'amato so much whether or not you like music whether you like the person creating so to pull from pop music and it's hard to pick a good repertoire of songs but lucky enough where they're not limited by like one artist..

That's when everything shut down, so it's very, very small Sampling of plays. And the play that wound up getting the most nominations. 15 in all was Thie Atlantis. More set musical, Jagged Little Pill was nominated for best musical. So was Moulin Rouge, the musical. That one is based on the the movie from nearly two thousands and also teen of the Tina Turner musical, which I happened to see when I was in London and is fantastic. I'm a huge Tina Turner fan. So you know, I may not be the most objective person on this, but there's only three musicals nominated this year. For best play. The nominees are Grand Horizons. The inheritance seawall, a life and slave play best revival of a play Betrayal Frankie and Johnny and declared a loon and a soldier's play. There are no nominees for best revival. Of a musical this year. It's a very, very bizarre unlisted. They don't even know when the awards are going to be given out. Normally, the Tony awards come out in June. They've already said that that will not be happening in June of next year, but they have not said if they're going to do an award show if they're just going to announce winners. What's gonna happen?

Los Angeles's Lucas Museum acquires major archive of African American cinema

"The Lucas Museum. Am hasn't yet opened. Its doors but the narrative art space just announced a major acquisition an extensive archive of Black American cinema movie. Posters and film stills stills called separate cinema. The Lucas Museum is currently under construction at Exposition Park near downtown. La It's scheduled to open in late twenty twenty anyone. The museum's film curator is Ryan Linkov Ryan. Welcome to the frame. Thank you for having me. The collection is called separate cinema. Can you explain lane. What's behind the name and how it defines what is included in the archive? We're actually just having this conversation with the founder of the Archive John. Kish the name. It comes out of a specific historical moment specifically the first half of the twentieth century. The Twenties Thirties and forties in particular which saw the proliferation of a film industry really defined around African American filmmakers producers directors actors really kind of films made four and by an African American audience and in a way those existed outside of the mainstream methods of making movies and the distribution channels. So they really were in some weighs a separate track Film production distribution and consumption. For that reason I think it's a way of kind of identifying the ways in which a film home industry kind of developed for particular market that is in some ways obviously always entwined in broader mainstream history but also has its own kind of internal integrity that said the materials in the collection are both made by black filmmakers for black audiences and obviously films produced by the mainstream mainstream majority white film. Production Industry for broader. Is this as well. I WANNA play a clip from a film from nineteen. Forty three is called a cabinet in the sky. As it's hard. Lena Horne Ethel waters and Eddie Anderson. Interestingly it was directed by Vincente Minnelli who did G G in American in Paris. But listen to this good example of what you're talking about in terms MM separate cinema. It's a scene from a cabin in the sky. Nail Right Reverend. When you call on the Senate confessed he better sign me the rest of the evening or oh? You're not that bad Joseph so when you think about this period in film history why is this period so important and understanding how we got where we are. Today I would say it's really in some ways. Essential to understand understand the ways in which especially the Hollywood studio system both developed a culture of representing African Americans that was on the one hand quite pernicious in the way that it represented very entrenched Stereotypes of the African American experience and on the other there were attempts such as cabin in the sky to produce films homes that were at least making an attempt to speak and more sensitive and thoughtful ways to African American audience by featuring major iconic figures within the African American community and also figures who had a broader kind of popular appeal. And this kind of push pull this tension between trying to both represent the African American experience and also kind of in some ways exploiting a capitalizing on particular stereotypes. I think are really kind of something that will continue tend to live with and continues to play itself out in certain ways and I think understanding this broader history especially that kind of early days the first half of the twentieth century when the entire film industry in some ways was most thoroughly coming into shape. I think really helps us understand and explain where we are at the present moment. We're talking with Ryan Linkov Film Curator Raider for the Lucas Museum. To ask you about the collection itself. There are thousands of items in it. What was John Kish up to? And how did he. He assembled all of these things. Well so he's been collecting release since I believe the nineteen seventies and acquiring this collection piece by piece through a variety of different outlets through auctions. Private collections need did develop. What is by most measures the most impressive and comprehensive archive of material related to African American cinema Really with the intent of creating an archive that was available for both scholarly early research and also public programming and exhibitions to really highlight celebrate explore and examine the broader history of African American cinema across the twentieth century. And into the twenty I and he continues to be in conversations with us as new things come auction and that kind of thing so we really want to continue that legacy and also make it in the same ways as accessible for the research and for their conceptualization of the history of African American cinema. I WANNA play a clip from another movie. That is a seminal example of black black cinema. This is one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. Do the right thing in this scene. We're going to hear from a character named Radio Raheem who played by. Bill is always always fighting. The other hand you left hand is kicking much. I mean it looks like the right hand. Love is finished but hold on stop depressed. Rest of the writing is coming back. He's got the best roads now. Strike the devastating right. Oh Hey Kale. I love the scene and it made me wonder about how much film presentation and screenings will. We'll be part of what this collection is going to be about. Are People going to be able to see movies. Are you do screenings and conversations around those films so some programming will be he and major part of the museum's mission going forward. We will have to state of the art theater for film programming and It's great that you played a clip from do the right thing because we are actually organizing a film program. In February February eighth that will feature do the right thing As well as the Whiz we actually the collaboration aberration with Los Angeles County Museum of art and this is really our first attempt at putting together a film program.

'No Room For The Modest Hit Anymore': Broadway Prepares For Summer Closings

"Broadway is coming off a record season in terms of attendance and box office receipts with twenty nine shows to choose from right now. Five of those shows though including some big budget disappointments agents are going to close over the next two weekends jeff london explains broadway attendance was up fourteen percent between twenty eighteen twenty nineteen generating one one point eight three billion dollars in ticket sales. It's been a great year for broadway and that's true if you're one of the producers of a blockbuster show but not everyone is i've been invited to the party says jeremy gerard who's been covering broadway as a reporter and critic for over three decades when he tallied up the eleven shows that opened in close this season though shows accounted for something like one hundred and forty million dollars in investment and that's a huge number at a time time when we're seeing these blockbuster shells and more reports of higher and higher box office grosses that tells me that we're in trouble that there's no room for the modest hit more several shows always close right after the tony awards if their box offices soft and they haven't won any any tony's and that happened with three shows this year charlotte saint martin president of the broadway league the organization that represents producers in theater owners. She says every summer shows close. We have a history of summer closings that goes back forever in two thousand fourteen. There was six in two thousand twelve. There was it's eight but this year there are more and what's unusual is that instead of hanging onto labor day to cash in on tourist dollars. Five musicals are closing in the next two weekends king kong which bumped up the losses significantly because it cost a staggering thirty six point five million dollars the prom tom pretty woman the share show and be more chill. Jerry gehring is a lead producer of that show. Who's cast album enjoyed more than two hundred million streams before a sold out run off broadway last summer but it never found real traction on broadway. It was a lot of factors like a lot of shows. We didn't get the tony love. We didn't get a straight across. Critical response. Broadway is incredibly expensive and you have to fill a lot of seats to to stem the losses. The producers decided to close in mid august because a lot of its target audience teams. Go back to school now before labor day gearing. Thanks says there are hoping to make back some of the nine million dollars they lost with a tour and licensing the broadway league's charlotte saint martin points out that most shows lose money four out of five shows don't recoup some don't lose all but don't recoup and yes. A lot of people lost a lot of money. There's no question that shows cost more in if they don't recoup. There's more money being lost but why so many this summer new york times critic ben brantley has a theory theory. All the shows were talking about the musicals at least including the unfortunate king kong. Just aren't that good so perhaps we're talking about discernment for wants what's journalist jeremy gerard has another theory. There are five shows lined up for every fever that becomes available and it's a seller's market. It's a market for vertu landlords and they want the big hits in there so i believe that they're putting a lot of pressure on producers of shows that are under performing to cut bait as is quickly as possible to get potential new hit him for example after kinky boots closed this spring moulin rouge moved right into the same theater and it's a smash hit for n._p._r.

BrainStuff Classics: Why Do We Fart?

"In two thousand and four in a tiny town. A young woman named Rebecca Gould was brutally murdered nearly fifteen years later her killer is still on the loose. It's just really surreal walking around. Don't mention so much. Guys out there yell. I'm Katherine towns, and this is Helen gone catch new episodes by subscribing at apple podcasts or on the iheartradio app or wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff. I'm Lauren Volvo bomb, and I've got another classic episode for you today in it. Our former host Christian Sager answers, a basic yet nonetheless burning question, why do we fart? Rain stuff. It's Christian Sager. So in the late eighteen hundreds there is this French guy and his name was lapel Mon, and he was one of the stars of Moulin Rouge, people would come from far and wide just to watch this guy fart. Yeah. To watch him fart, lapenne them on you see was a professional flatulence, which as it turns out is still sort of thing. And certainly it's a dream job for some. But if you want to move out of the ranks of amateur windbreakers, an into those stinking hallowed halls of the professionally flatulent, you will need to know if thing or two about farts, like what are they why do they happen? And why do they smell so bad? Well, first things first everyone farts every single person. Yes. You to listening to this. You do to to not far would be medically fascinating and probably dangerous on average. Most people are passing about one. Leader of gas a day spread out over thirteen to wait for it. Twenty one incidents. That's Twenty-one separate times in one day, the composition of a fart varies widely. But usually what we're smelling is something that's mostly nitrogen along with oxygen carbon dioxide and even methane. This gas itself comes from several sources the air you swallow gas that enters your intestines from your bloodstream and so on but about seventy five percent of your farts are created in your lower intestine. And unfortunately, not by you see the bacteria living inside you right now, they comprise a micro Buyum all of their own. And when we say, it's intricate. We mean it so intricate that David Attenborough could make a documentary about it these bacteria form this thriving empire with billions of tiny separate organisms living inside their host. And that's you. They're living with you. And symbiosis. Now flatulence occurs when food passes through your stomach and small intestine without fully breaking down. So what does this mean, this means that the food hits the large intestine in an undyed jested state? So for example, let's look at lactose which is present in dairy products like milk and cheese, if you're lactose intolerant than you lack the enzyme that breaks lactose into sugar molecules for the bloodstream without this lactose just breezes through your stomach and small intestine into your large intestine where it becomes the special of the day for billions of Hungary bacteria, those guys love lactose. And if you're not going to digest it they will as they digest this lactose, they emit a number of gases, including methane, hydrogen carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide, which is responsible for the unpleasant, aroma. This process is similar to how yeast produces carbon dioxide to. Leaven bread. And speaking of food. It's true that some foods do produce more flatulence primarily because they contain more indigestible carbohydrates. I'm looking at you beans, nutrient dense, vegetables and fiber, rich foods all have a reputation for nibbling flatulence, that's not necessarily a bad thing. See a scientists learn more about the relationship between diet health and a person's microbiome they're discovering that these flatulent foods may encourage the growth of beneficial bacteria in your gut when they're producing that next embarrassing puff of gas. They're also making molecules to protect your intestinal lining and prevent infections. So remember the next time you're silent crime accidentally ends up sounding like stuttering, trumpet, your intestinal bacteria are the real culprits. They are the ones actually farting. And and look I want to emphasize this. They are farting inside of you. You and then you fart their farts out. Are we clear on that part, which leads us to the bigger question of the day? Who are we fighting inside? Episode was written by Ben Bullen and produced by Tyler clang to hear more weird and funny true stories from Ben check out his show ridiculous history.
