MOTHER OF THE MAID 🇫🇷 Lights up on Glenn Close telling us that when Isabelle Arc lost a baby girl she didn’t shed a tear because she knew that motherhood is a numbers game - you ought to lose a few. •
We get to experience the story of Joan of Arc from the perspective of her uneducated, working class mother. Makes you think of mothers of other great people and leaders.
• 
Joan is a case study of female leadership: first, she has to fight her own self doubt, then her family’s beating and mocking and eventually her people’s mistrust.
•
💬FAVORITE QUOTE “Don’t worry about Saint Catherine, your mama is here.”

PLOT POINTS IN OUR SEXUAL DEVELOPMENT 🧶
•
The millennials’ Vagina Monologues?
A transgender person and a sic woman untangle some ridiculous conventions they grew up with and how it effected their sexual lives and self esteem.

🔸“I had Catholic education. God, if only I knew how to use my fingers that would have prevented so much suffering.”
🔸”My Mom sat me one day and told me that boys have penises and women don’t.”

THE RESISTIBLE RISE OF ARTURO UI
My dear teacher at Strasberg, Mr. Geoffrey Horne, used to tell us that a performance should be “unexpected yet inevitable”. These words echoed in my head as the play ended. •
I mean, it’s Brecht. You know it’s coming. You know the gangster is going to win. You know everyone who opposes him is going to die. As well as those who were “just following orders”. No sentiments. 
Throughout the show we hear the crowd of Hitler cheering. WE KNOW it’s coming.
•
And yet when the bad guy (Ui/Hitler/fill in your favorite asshole) says in his victory speech (clever new adaptation):
“In order to keep this peace I orderd machine guns!! Little Rock, Pennsylvania, Ferguson, Pittsburgh, Connecticut and New York!!! All demand protection!!!” While raising his right hand in oh too familiar gesture... In that moment the tears in the audience eyes are unexpected yet inevitable.
•
Go see the show. 
Oh and go vote if you can ✌️

THE THANKSGIVING PLAY⛺️
A couple of failing theater artists have to come up with a plan for a Thanksgiving play for elementary school kids. Things get complicated when they realize that the actress they hired from LA isn't a real Native American. She just has a Native American headshot. Because she has different headshots for different ethnicities. Now they can't fire her because that would be racist. But the grant they were given specifies that it should include a Native American’s perspective. After all it is Native American Heritage Month. •
💬Favorite quotes:
🔸"You have no idea how hard it is to be put down as a white male. This hardly ever happens. Please give me more of this. I need to meditate on that feeling".
🔸"On the sixth day of Thanksgiving the Natives gave to me 6 tipi tents. On the fifths day of Thanksgiving the Natives gave to me 5 pairs of moccasins..." •
🔸"What's a privilege? Oh I get it... I'm hot so that's a privilege, right?" •

FIREFLIES 🔥🔥🔥
Olivia hears booms in her head. She is terrified to see how her people are treated by the Jim Crow laws in the South of the early 60’s. She doesn’t see the point of welcoming a colored baby into the world. Is it in their power to make the necessary changes so that the next generation wouldn’t have to suffer?
•
She writes all the reverend’s speeches, that is, her husband’s. People adore him for that. For his charisma and the ability to always say the right words. After a black church is put on fire and whenever a black kid is found dead while being under arrest.
•
So Charles travels through the South while his wife, pregnant with a baby, writes the next speech for the next murder. •
💬Favorite quote:
“You’re all silent now. You don’t know what to say because I am the one giving you words”.

KING LEAR 👧🏽👱🏽‍♀️👩🏻
Actress Lea Koenig is playing the monarch at the Israeli national theater. Interestingly, Glenda Jackson will do the same on Broadway starting February (And she did already in London).
•
This play gets more depressing as you get older. And seeing an older actor play the part is all the more saddening. Does she feel like younger actors get all the juicy parts while she stays behind? I mean she did choose to bite into Lear :) •

BERNHARDT/HAMLET🧝🏻‍♀️💀
The French diva Sarah Bernhardt has one question she desperately needs to answer: Who’s Hamlet⁉️
A youth or an adult? Privileged prince or a miserable orphan? Is he strong or weak?
•
Her previous play failed miserably and now, poor and defeated, she has to reinvent herself in order to gain the love of the public again. Preferably with some cash too.
•
A woman playing Hamlet can either be brilliant or an absolute disaster. Either way it has to have justification. So which one would it be?
•
💬THESE LINES GOT SOME 👏 •
🔸”When a woman does nothing no one cares, when a man does nothing he’s Hamlet”.
🔸”I will not play a flower anymore. And not because I’m old, but because it’s beneath me. It was always beneath me. It’s beneath all women”.

LITTLE ROCK 🎓
It is 1957 in Arkansas. A group of African American students wants to attend Central high school, however the governor wants to refuse the federal law “to protect the colored kids”.
•
They suffer humiliations and violence every single day from the white kids, however when one of them can’t keep her mouth shut anymore and stands up for herself - she’s the one to get thrown away from school.
•
💬FAVORITE QUOTES •
🔸-“The president is afraid that if the white folks see a black soldier protecting the kids it will start a civil war” -“Too late”
•
🔸-What state is the happiest?
-Maryland
•
🔸-What state does most laundry?
