a night at the theater…

…with actors who shoot politicians
Lincoln
Hamilton

Then there’s diversity diversity.
Plus, there’s this.

Even more *heh*
Now, it’s the war of etiquettes over who should apologize to whooom.

Pass the popcorn, please

(What? Oh, yes, yes indeed. I am very much enjoying this, thanks. [taps pipe ashes, wipes nose on sleeve])

Y’know, this public argument about who was insulted, who was offended, and who should apologize to whom is the kind of thing that, back in Hamilton’s time, would have been settled by a… waaait for it…


(What? Why, yes, I did notice that one of those pistols is a right-handed flintlock and the other is a left-handed percussion lock. Not equal things at all, but I suspect a bit of artistic license to make it so the two cocks meshed visually.) [/PedanticQuibble]
Now back to the joke already in progress.

No, wait…
forget everything I posted.
Ka-Ching! has the best take.

A ticket gets you in, but it doesn’t keep you in. *meheh*

Ouch!

    Shitty petty bullies.
    Shitty. Shitty. Shitty.
    One sided grandstanding on a stage isn’t ” conversation “, especially when a guy’s just there to see a show.
    Not the time or place. Thought Kanye’s latest insanity was inappropriate as well

    It’s beginning to be flu season…hope the next show doesn’t get interrupted by lots of loud coughing.

    When even the beloved NFL is seeing their fans fed up with political grandstanding……………

    The ACLU didn’t complain when a sitting U. S. Senator told the press generally not to talk about his wife’s campaign speeches.

    A little man with his little speech. In a little while one man will still be vice-president the other just another has been actor.

    Reminds me of an instance of Linda Ronstadt’s politicizing from the stage, except in her case, many in the audience walked out, saying they came to be entertained, not lectured to.
    That actor had no empathy for that possibility in his action; Broadway tickets are very expensive, and for many who attend, it’s a special occasion saved for for months. I for one would tell the self indulgent jackass to shut up and entertain me, or I’d walk out.

    As far as a casting call for ‘non-white actors’, I’m in the middle of the biography the play is supposedly based on, and so far, I’ve seen that while Hamilton was an ardent abolitionist, he and most of his family, business, military, social and political contacts were, in fact, very, very white.

    I guess the play is meant to be a polemic on diversity*spit* rather than a factual presentation on an energetic and brilliant Founding Father.

    Acting: living a lie, living that same lie day after day, speaking other-people’s words which say things you wouldn’t say, wearing makeup and hair and clothes you wouldn’t otherwise wear, making love to someone you don’t care about… in the hope that people will notice you and approve (you hear that applause, Dad?).

    Why should we listen to people who embrace the make-believe and foolishly think they are personally respected, because people applaud for the performance, forgetting that the audience will clap even for stand-ins.

    The real message is in the play, not in the performer.

    Wellp, mebbe that’s what these folks were trying to overcome.
    Not very professional, but understandable in this day and age.

    Hey, it’s a free country.

    In Shakespeare’s day, actors were considered on a par with prostitutes in terms of social status.

    Just sayin’ ….
