Too-Insidery 'Razzle' Sadly Doesn't Dazzle

npr.org — New York Post theater columnist Michael Riedel proffers anecdote after juicy backstage anecdote in Razzle Dazzle, which is just what you'd expect from Broadway's most venomous observer. Oddly, though, he doesn't bother proffering them until roughly halfway through the book, which, in the terms of the business he covers, is rather like saving your best character-establishing ballad 'til after intermission.

I'm no fan of Michael Riedel, but I had reasonably high hopes for his new book. He should be glad I'm not him. npr.org/2015/10/04/445…

'The Millionaire And The Bard,' By Andrea Mays : NPR

npr.org — Henry Folger's Obsessive Hunt for Shakespeare's First Folio Hardcover, 350 pages | purchase Senators beelining for roll call at the U.S. Capitol, protesters brandishing signs on the Supreme Court sidewalk, guides mama-ducking tourists past the Beaux-Arts splendor of the Library of Congress - they don't always stop to note the elegant Art Deco low-rise tucked in alongside those showier landmarks.

Dolly Parton: Songs We Love

npr.org — Even if you don't care too much for country music, you've got to love Dolly Parton. That hair? That makeup? That roller coaster, with what the Dollywood Web site delicately refers to as "butterfly back-to-back loops"? What's not to like?

recode.net — For all the digital gimmickry and drool-worthy gadgetry deployed in the British TV anthology " Black Mirror," it's an image as old and organic as storytelling itself that lingers for me after a quick binge-watch: A solitary artist pushes back from her easel, stands and stretches and walks to the window, to find there a moth beating its powdery wings against the panes.

washingtoncitypaper.com — Candide hurls its characters from a storybook castle into a garden hedged 'round by a new-earned knowledge of good and evil, and in the process it cracks open their heads and their hearts. Ours, too. At least in Mary Zimmerman's thoughtful, emotional production-are there two words that chime together better when the subject is theater?-this is [...]

And What Could It All Mean? : NPR

npr.org — Strange and stylish and surpassingly dark, Denis Villeneuve's Enemy - especiallypaired with the same director's recent cop thriller Prisoners - makes a strong case for star Jake Gyllenhaal as maybe our most enigmatic young leading man.

Thrills, Chills And High Subatomic Drama : NPR

npr.org — All you really need to know about Particle Fever is that it includes footage of physicists rapping. About physics. Wearing giant Einstein masks. It's that blend of earnestness and abandon that informs Mark Levinson's utterly absorbing documentary, a chronicle of the launch of the Large Hadron Collider and the search for the fabled Higgs boson, a subatomic particle long theorized but never located.
