Re: “As 'Hamilton' Demonstrates, Our Country's Founders Had Their Turn to Fight, and It's Our Turn Now

Artsy types have always been this way.

They have no power. They would like you to think they matter but they don't. Bankers run things...and it was Hamilton who laid the foundation for that.

We're looking at Republican gains in the Senate in November. Trump 2020 is in the can but no one will admit it. With the market in the sky and unemployment near historic lows, why wouldn't it be?

How long will we along our entertainment to be held captive by a leftist agenda?

Re: “As 'Hamilton' Demonstrates, Our Country's Founders Had Their Turn to Fight, and It's Our Turn Now

What a stupid and sloppy article with such obvious bias. It didn't suffice to write a theater critique I guess. You had to inject your politics every step of the way. Let me just point out a few of your most hilarious gaffes. So first, you point out that it's performed by mostly non-white actors, even though most of these characters were, in fact, thoroughly white. Ok, so that's fine, as long as they do a good job portraying the character. But what's interesting is that if the character were in fact a non-white, then a white or any other than the original race, gender, religion, favorite food-eating, etc etc etc cannot play that character. Hypocrisy much? Yes, of course you do, that's par for the course for the extreme Left. Ok, let's move on. You then talk much about democracy and how it isn't working now. Well, that's interesting. It worked when Obama was elected twice to the presidency, but when a right-leaning candidate was elected you scream "failure of democracy!" It's like a spoiled child who doesn't get their way and has a tantrum. No logic involved, just pure outraged emotion. But by the way, news flash, we are NOT a democracy. The very founding fathers who are featured in this production and who wrote the Constitution took from example how dangerous mob rule was and instituted a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC. Thank God there are still parts of that still working. To finish up, yes, this country is on fire, thanks to previous administrations hell-bent on remaking America, Constitution be damned, according to their warped vision of what America should be. The current one is trying to put that out and get us back on track. The immigrant Alexander Hamilton, who helped found this country, would have expected no less...

Re: “An Israeli Family is Tormented by Uncertainty on Their Independence Day Cookout

It's nice that Scene deletes any comments except from user Grizz65. It's always pleasant to know if I scroll down through one of these articles, I can depend on seeing multiple trashy posts from only Grizz65.

Re: “An Israeli Family is Tormented by Uncertainty on Their Independence Day Cookout

"We"...yeah, right...Spamming Troll...YOU and your 165 anonymous usernames...and all those pinko Commie dust bunnies under your bed, who scare the bejesus out of you. I still don't understand why they haven't blocked you, but then, I'm not a techie. There must be a reason why you keep on showing up,, just like a cockroach.

Wise up already,, sonny. I recently explained to you that SCENE is an "alternative media weekly" and NOT an "entertainment magazine"...and that it has always been left-of-center in its political stance, or at the very least, rather progressive in its outlook.

Obviously, you were not paying attention. You just like to piss and moan and whine and bitch. You're a lot like the folks in this play.

Why don't you come up out of your parents' basement and go see it? It's SUMMERTIME. The sunshine and the fresh air might clear a few cobwebs from your one-track, anti-Communist, wanna-wreck-SCENE mind. Couldn't hurt!

Re: “An Israeli Family is Tormented by Uncertainty on Their Independence Day Cookout

No one is working harder than the scene magazine staff and owners to destroy the magazine. We just want entertainment info in Cleveland without a dramatically biased political slant.

Re: “An Israeli Family is Tormented by Uncertainty on Their Independence Day Cookout

Thank you....and "family" only has one 'i'...not two...

There was a play similar to this one in the Seventies, about a messed-up Vietnam vet attending a family gathering during the holiday celebrating American independence...hence its title--"The Fifth of July"...could Keren have stolen his idea for this mish-mosh from that production?

Re: “An Israeli Family is Tormented by Uncertainty on Their Independence Day Cookout

So you're a theater critic now, troll? She's not a kid. probably a older than you are.

If you're going to be a critic, why not critique this play? I've heard of it before. Sounds terrible.

I mean, I could barely keep the names and the characters straight in this farshtunkener review. And I'm supposed to shlep to the theater and listen to a hundred minutes of pissing, moaning, bitching, and whining? Are you kidding me? If I want to hear kvetching, I can go to a family party. No thanks!

Troll, I know your ultimate goal is to destroy SCENE Magazine. No way. They will destroy you instead. And if I'm going to continue to be the only registered name in the entire city of Cleveland who is willing to continue to take you on, so be it. I have plenty of time in which to do it. How much have you got?

Re: “The Intensity is Sometimes Lacking in 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' at Blank Canvas Theatre

"Thus, as Hedwig relates between songs in his set" should read "Thus, as Hedwig relates between songs in her set".

Also, you may not have had the right exceptions for this character going into the show. Hedwig isn't hardcore 100% of the time. She is weepy-eyed, she is soft, she has been trampled. To expect her to unwaveringly maintain the 'edge' you refer to is unfair to the piece and performers.

Re: “Lazy Writing, Other Unfortunate Factors Combine for Soggy 'Appropriate' at Dobama Theatre

I think the cicadas are supposed to represent the ghosts in the slave cemetery. that's why they are so loud and why they dominate the final scene. the play is some about the family and some about the ghosts. If the cicadas were quieter I think they'd be interpreted as sultry background noise rather than a character on their own.

Re: “Lazy Writing, Other Unfortunate Factors Combine for Soggy 'Appropriate' at Dobama Theatre

I want you to know that I and my two companions thoroughly enjoyed this production.
We admired the writing, the directing and the acting of all.
The only annoyance was the length and volume of the playing of the 18-year Cicadas.
I hope that others will see my comment and plan to see this play.

Excellent production. Would suggest turning up the sound levels for patrons in the balconies.

Re: “Watch It Wednesdays at 78th Street Studios Gives You a Chance to Watch Artists While They Work

Aside from being the near perfect trophy wife, Frazier-Mueller is a master at milking the rubes that come to 78th street. Just artsy enough, but not too, at $20 or so pricepoints. Probably no one comes close to the money she makes there.

Re: “Cast Seems Totally Tuckered in a Lackluster Production of Renowned Musical 'Rent'

You know that the set of Rent has literally never changed, right? That 'large dumb useless sculpture' has been in every single production since it's inception. Also, you completely mixed up and then combined Mimi and Angel (Angel's solo is Today 4 U, a scene Mimi is not even in.)

Re: “Three Exhibitions About Women and by Women Artists You Shouldn't Miss This Month

As a middle aged woman, I respectfully say without hesitation, "NO THANKS!" Stop acting like women in any way, shape, or form are oppressed in the USA. I grew up with the same educational opportunities as my male peers, was allowed to choose my own career path, decide on if I wanted to marry (and most importantly WHO I wanted to marry), if I wanted or did not want to have children, etc etc etc... take this 'activist' crap to countries where women honestly DON'T have rights.
