The person behind the PowerPoint message me about this. I’m sharing this for those who are interested. Good read, though.
Friendly reminder that tonight’s the night that marks Idina’s return to the Breadway stage in a new musical
Breadway. THAT IS THE FIRST FUCKING THING I SAW I CANNOT BREATHE.
IT WAS A TYPO I’M SORRY I FIXED IT RIGHT AFTER I POSTED BUT IT WAS TOO LATE PLEASE DON’T KILL ME
Adele Dazeem returns to Breadway in her latest musical “it/when.” She is a viable contender for the Timmy for best beading mattress, along with several other superb leading ladies, Shmutton Roster, Kayla O’Mara, and Audrey McRonalds.
seems to me you speak john tromolo very well, lady
Thankfully, Audrey McRonalds’ show, “Bobby Flay,” is a play so she will not be a competition for Adele. However, Bessie Baller from the Coraline Wingstop musical “Bbeezlebub” had a lot of Timmy buzz.
To me, the trailer looks interesting, but I can’t judge the movie based on the trailer. But I like Quevenzhane and I’m glad she’s getting more roles.
just in case people don’t know, the composer of frozen is bobby lopez, a renowned filipino-american songwriter, and if he wins best original song tonight then he will be the first man of colour in history to win an emmy, grammy, oscar, and tony

Cinderella arrives at the ball.
this movie was so important
we had black cinderella, a black fairy godmother, and a filipino prince
like yoOOOOO THIS WAS ‘97 AND PEOPLE ARE SHITTING OVER A CHEERIOS COMMERCIAL TODAY LIKE Y000000
Victor Garber and Whoopi Goldberg parented an Asian prince. Like what more can you ask for?
thesopranoingenue asked: So, I'm having a bit of a moral dilemma. I really want to see Bullets Over Broadway because I love Betsy Wolfe and Marin Mazzie. BUT, it's based on a Woody Allen movie, and me buying a ticket would put money in Woody Allen's pocket because of royalties. And since Allen is basically known to be a sex offender and a pedophile, I really don't want to support him or his lifestyle in any way. But at the same time I really want to support the theatre and the actors in the show. Any advice?
Hmm. This is such a difficult question, but I’ll try my best to answer.
I did want to see Bullets Over Broadway because I like the movie and I wanted to see Zach and Marin and Betsy onstage. But knowing this was written by Woody Allen, I don’t know. I know it’s hard to support a show that was written by someone like Woody. But I can’t say on whether you should boycott the show or not.
There will be some who will boycott his works and there are some who will support his works, saying you should separate the artist from the art. I tried to follow these two beliefs and they don’t work. No matter how much I’ll boycott, I’ll end up watching his movies because my film nerd friends will say it’s great and no matter how much I like his films, I still can’t ignore the fact that this is the same man who married his adopted step-daughter and made a movie where his lover is a 16-year-old girl.
In the end, I cannot give a definitive answer on whether or not you should watch Bullets Over Broadway. If you want to watch it because you want to support Marin and Betsy, that’s fine with me. If you want to avoid it because of Woody, I’m okay with that too. It doesn’t matter whether you watch it or not, it’s still important to call out Woody for his actions and be aware that he’s not this great director his defenders say. You can watch the musical and still call out on Woody’s actions. Or you can skip it and meet Marin and Betsy at the stage door. Whatever you choose is up to you. But it’s still important to call out Woody for what he did.

Randy Gener is an editor, writer, and artist, who has made a significant impact in the Filipino American and arts/theater community in New York and worldwide.
On January 17, 2014, he was brutally attacked in Manhattan, a few blocks from his home. He suffered brain trauma and is currently still in the hospital.
We, as New Yorkers, demand an end to hate violence in our city. We as LGBTQ folks, Filipino Americans, people of color, and allies want to feel safe on our streets again.
Join us for a candlelight vigil to show your support to Randy and to proclaim to the world that hate violence will not be tolerated. Sunday, 1/26/14 at 6pm. Bring your own candles, bundle up, and be prepared to march a few blocks. Please spread the word.
The Vigil is at 53rd and 7th Ave, 6 pm tonight (JAN 26TH, 2014)
