As an amazing scene in the art section of the New York Times over the weekend, review drop For Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella, or changed to a Broadway title, bad cinderellaWithin days of the ticket going on sale, it was already being flogged on discount ticket sites in New York, but that was before the review came out.

Jesse Green’s assessment of the show was, as he puts it, ‘welcomed with a luxurious warmth’ 2 Summer in London It was neither warm nor sweet. From the first “Bring me earplugs” to the next “Bring me eyeplugs”, and even “If you have a soul plug, I would recommend it too”, I declared it as one of them. Of these reviews, it is effectively mandated by law to initiate the transfer. (I exchanged texts with some friends that morning, which simply said “soul plug” and needed no further explanation).

The gist of Green’s Beef is that the show, a “vulgar, sex-up-and-dumb-down” version of the classic tale, has “workmanlike lyrics” by David Zippel, an undercooked book by Emerald Fennell, and ” Lawrence Connor”. Lindy Gennao, who plays Cinderella, was said to “sing bravely.” In the process of tearing down the show, Green swiped Evita (“not good for the culture”) and Cats (“not good for anything”) and briefly sided with Lloyd Webber.

chief trouble, a ‘women’s networking group’ that raised $100m (£81m) in funding last year alone and is now embroiled in a battle over what and who it is for. I personally can’t think of anything worse than joining a women’s networking group. The networking world has always relied on business her plans to present focused self-interest as agents of social or political mobility. (Side note: I’ve never met a woman so unwilling to help other women as a paid event organized by a woman to help other women). In this case, group members pay a $5,800 annual (or her $7,900 for executives) subs to access the speaker’s events, mentoring, clubhouse, and of course each other.
