    Julie Taymor Talks Spiderman at LA Theatre Conference

    I'm a bit obsessed about the Julie Taymor/Spiderman situation. Mostly I'm obsessed because of what this will mean for her career, but also what it will mean for other women's careers. Since her departure from the show several months ago, the narrative has been created by everyone else by her, mostly by necessity, since it didn't make sense for her to speak while she was trying to negotiate terms. But still, she was made out to be this incredibly difficult person who would not listen to reason and change the show so that it would be more commercial. Hardy any blame was given to the musicians The Edge and Bono who had never written a musica...

    Guest Post: Haunted by Future Anxiety by Laurel Haines

    About ten years ago I started to feel like maybe the future wouldn’t be so great. Not my personal future, but the future we were creating by destroying the environment and racking up national debt like a teenager with a credit card.

And could the generations born into that world ever forgive us for having al...
