Does anyone still wear a hat? For designers on Broadway this season, the answer was yes, actually, they do.

Broadway has made strides toward diversity lately, with the revival of The Color Purple and Hamilton taking top honors at the 2016 Tony Awards . Noticeably absent from many recent seasons, however, are stories that focus on Asian narratives. Salongas 2015 Broadway stint opposite George Takei in Allegiance seemed poised to change that by featuring a nearly all-Asian cast. The musical, which opened in New York after a successful San Diego run , was loosely based on Takeis experiences in a Japanese-American internment camp during World War II. Still, the show struggled to find an audience and, facing stiff competition from Hamilton , closed after just 111 performances. We thought, for sure, Allegiance would strike a chord, given the times in which it was staged, Salonga said of the experience.

Here’s how his fictional counterparts have fared New Northern Ireland peace process movie The Journey pushes Toby Stephens into the crowded pantheon of actors who have pretended to be Tony Blair; a dominant public figure whose rise, fall and endlessly disputed motives make him attractive to performers who want to show they can both mimic a familiar persona and push past it to reveal the real man. In his parallel life on screen, Blair has been at best a complex antihero and, more often, a tragicomic villain in vengeful what-if fantasies. If the former PM ever dreamed of being a shining idol in film or TV, he has been repeatedly disappointedContinue reading...
