theater series

Unpopular opinion

I’m not seeing R/a/g/n/a/r/o/k in theaters …  that series is just incredibly boring to me. I mean, I enjoy the other movies in the Marvel MCU … but those . .. those are painful. I can’t sit still for them. It’s better to watch them at home where I can sit on the internet and get up and move.

I’ll be renting it.

Lets Talk About Julies Greenroom

Julie Andrews has a new show on Netflix that came out this month called Julies Greenroom. Its about a group of kids (muppets) who are a part of an acting group with Julie as their mentor. Each episode has a guest star who also teaches them about theater!

Characters!
Spike- black kid with an afro who has a word bank and writes big words Julie uses with definitions down so he can use them later
Fiz- Latina who actually has like 3 last names lol she also has curly brown hair and lighter brown skin
Peri- Unspecified asian (im only on episode 1 lol) who is the theater queen aka rachel berry lol shes adorable tho
Hank- white kid with a disability that has ended him up in a wheelchair
Riley- baby gay, she has glasses, uncombed red hair, a blazer, doesnt want to act wants to be in tech, knows about plumbing lmao
Hugo- A geese/duck bc as Julie says “the theater never discriminates”
And Julie has a helper named Gus (not sure what the race is im guessing white?) He is super cute and chill
Julie- omg of course she kills it. She sings too!!

I’m not really active in the Utapri fandom and definitely not up to date but sometimes I come back to see what’s happened so far. As always, they never fail to impress me with their character design; I literally fell in love with the princes’ outfits in their Theater Shining drama CD series.

My only wish is to get full otome drama CDs with these characters in the respective universes… Which we will never get I guess…

‘Will’

This new drama looks to be a punk-rock take on the young life of William Shakespeare. It begins with the arrival of the Bard (Laurie Davidson) onto the 16th century London theater scene. The cast also features Olivia DeJonge, Jamie Campbell Bower, Max Bennett, Colm Meaney, Mattias Inwood and Jasmin Savoy Brown. Back-to-back, two-hour series premiere at 9 p.m. Monday, July 10, on TNT.

Now ‘Spamilton’ Really Can’t Miss Its Shot to Tease ‘Hamilton’ (NYT):

[…] “Spamilton,” the uproarious Off Broadway spoof of the blockbuster Broadway musical, has become an increasingly popular ticket for people who can’t afford or can’t get seats for “Hamilton” (top ticket price: $849). “Spamilton” skirts right up to the line, mimicking music from “Hamilton,” satirizing its characters and scenes, using a similar logo and channeling the hip-hop vibe that has invigorated the colossal “Hamilton” fan base. But the top price for premium “Spamilton” tickets is $113.

And on Friday, “Spamilton” will even begin performances in the backyard of “Hamilton,” moving from an Upper West Side theater to the 47th Street Theater, a block away from where “Hamilton” is running.

If “Hamilton” executives have a problem with “Spamilton,” they aren’t saying: They declined to comment for this article. The spoof’s creator, Gerard Alessandrini, said his show is paying homage to “Hamilton” by mocking it — and doing so within the legal bounds for parodies.

“I chose to make it just about ‘Hamilton,’ but not because we’re going to make more money,” said Mr. Alessandrini, who has had enormous success for decades with “Forbidden Broadway,” his series of theater parodies. “But because it’s a better idea.”

“Hamilton” regularly grosses between $2.5 million and $3 million a week, while “Spamilton” makes a fraction of that, although Mr. Alessandrini and his colleagues declined to say exactly how much. The 47th Street Theater seats 182.

“We’re on the coattails of ‘Hamilton,’” Mr. Alessandrini continued, in an interview at the theater while the cast was rehearsing. “But in a good way, a loving way. The way a little child would be on the coattails of their parents. Or a puppy dog.”

[…]

Make no mistake: Mr. Alessandrini, 63, skewers Broadway because he loves Broadway. He has been satirizing shows with pinpoint precision dating back to 1982, when “Forbidden Broadway” first opened, the parody musical revue that left none of theater’s most popular shows untouched. (“Annie” has been mocked repeatedly, even in “Spamilton.”)

In 2009, Mr. Alessandrini briefly put “Forbidden Broadway” on ice because he felt that shows on Broadway weren’t good enough to parody. As “Hamilton” box-office grosses piled up, the equation changed. He felt duty-bound as Broadway’s premier satirist to knock it down a peg.

At the same time, the caricature has not so subtly attached itself to its originator, by using a similar tagline, “An American Parody” (but not exactly the same as “An American Musical”). The “Spamilton” logo is a star with its top point cut off. The “Hamilton” logo happens to be a star with its top point cut off. The difference is that the sendup illustrates a silhouette thumbing its nose at the top, while the “Hamilton” emblem shows one pointing an arm toward the sky.

“Spamilton” reimagines Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of “Hamilton,” and his quest to reshape Broadway with rap — a Broadway revolution of sorts.

“I just felt, ‘Oh, thank god,’ when it came on,” Mr. Alessandrini said. “A new way of doing a musical. For so many years, musicals were rehashes.”

[…]

The teams behind “Hamilton” and “Spamilton” would not comment as to whether the parody was compensating its source material. Most parodies are protected under “fair use,” which allows for limited uses of unlicensed copyrighted material. In terms of trademark infringement, according to Domenic Romano, a New York City-based entertainment lawyer, “Spamilton” is probably on solid ground.

“If you compare them side by side, there are obviously similarities, but no one in commerce would confuse these two products,” Mr. Romano said. “‘Hamilton’ would have a case against ‘Spamilton’ if you could show, ‘You’re taking our audience away because people went to ‘Spamilton’ thinking it was ‘Hamilton.’”

Mr. Alessandrini, who has already picked his next target (a sendup of Hollywood called “Blah Blah Land”), batted away suggestions that his show’s sole aim was to piggyback on an iconic show’s brand.

“‘Hamilton’ is the biggest hit since I’ve been alive,” he said. “I had to spoof it.”

Guest star voice talent includes Weird Al, Lori Petty, Charlyne Yi, Kate Micucci, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jasika Nicole, Felicia Day, Jonah Ray, Angelica Ross, and Jazz Jennings

(NASDAQ: AMZN) — Amazon today announced its original animated kids series Danger & Eggs is scheduled to premiere on Friday, June 30 on Prime Video in the US and UK. Featuring the voice talent of comedians Aidy Bryant (Saturday Night Live) as D.D. Danger and Eric Knobel (Huge Theater) as Phillip, the series will also include guest star voice talent from Weird Al (Milo Murphy’s Law), Lori Petty (Tank Girl), Charlyne Yi (Knocked Up), Kate Micucci (Garfunkle and Oates), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim), Jasika Nicole (Fringe), Felicia Day (Geek and Sundry), Jonah Ray (Nerdist, Mystery Science Theater), Angelica Ross (Her Story), and Jazz Jennings (I Am Jazz). Danger & Eggs is created by Mike Owens (Yo Gabba Gabba!, Animaniacs) and Shadi Petosky (Yo Gabba Gabba!, Mad) and executive produced by Owens, Petosky, and Chris Hardwick (Talking Dead, @midnight). The pilot, which was part of Amazon’s Fall 2015 pilot season and is rated 4.6 out of 5 stars by customers with 80% 5-star reviews, is now available to stream exclusively for Prime members via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online—Prime members can also download the pilot to mobile devices for offline viewing at no additional cost to their membership.

Danger & Eggs follows the endless adventures of a fearless, teal-haired girl named D.D. Danger (Aidy Bryant) and her ever cautious best friend, a giant talking egg named Phillip (Eric Knobel). As the daughter of world-renowned stunt daredevil, Roy Danger, D.D. is following in his footsteps and is always chasing her next big thrill. Luckily for her, Phillip is always there by her side with jerry-rigged safety mechanisms to make her thrill-seeking dreams come true. Together, they go in search of new adventures at their favorite spot, Chicken Paw Park, which is home to Philip’s mom Becky, a gargantuan chicken. The first season finds D.D. and Phillip meeting a raccoon with a thirst for technology, being sucked into a mysterious underground science lab, discovering a lonely robot in an overgrown garden, and taking on a famous zip line. Throughout their journey, they overcome obstacles with the “Buddy System” because even though they are polar opposites, their differences complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses to solve problems. Their Buddy System mantra says it all, “You look out for me and I’ll look out for you!”

“We are excited to introduce our first animated comedy for children ages 6-11 to our customers,” said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. “We feel incredibly lucky to be working with the caliber of creative talent behind this series.”

“For us, the heart of Danger & Eggs is the friendship between Phillip and D.D. that proves you can face fear and danger and have a blast in the process because you are not alone,” said Mike Owens. Adds Shadi Petosky: "We can’t believe we get to take out our anxiety on a show–putting our inside voices into these characters and seeing if they stay friends.”

"I’ve been passionate about animation my whole life and to produce this series with my animation company fulfills a lifelong goal,” says Chris Hardwick, Executive Producer. "This show is funny, touching, and has incredible design–everything I’ve wanted to make.”

Below are what customers have said about the Danger & Eggs pilot:

  • “[My 8 year-old son] asked to watch this show at least four times! He loves it! I’ve watched it with him for at least three of those times.”
  • “As a father of a little girl with anxiety issues, I really appreciated Phillip’s portrayal. So often in cartoons there is shaming of nervousness or anxiety (ie: C'mon, don’t be a wimp) but in Danger and Eggs, Phillip is just there. He’s an anxious character and that’s ok.”
  • “My son loves this show! He’s 6 and says he loves the characters and finds them very funny. He loves the art style and how crazy and fun it is.”
  • “As a father of two young daughters, I was thrilled to see a show that revolves around a young girl going on playfully dangerous adventures without the need of an overly macho cohort saving her! Added points for the wonderful humor that is also incorporated for the older demographic without it being crude.”
  • “My 10-year-old daughter and I both loved it! She appreciates the subtle humor and animation of this show and said she wants to watch more!”
