Tips for Tuesday - Books: Angel's Serenade, Movies: Scandalous the Untold Story of the National Enquirer

We may have been give one or more of the books and/or other products listed below or complimentaty access to to any movies mentioned below for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Books: Angel's Serenade


Mom - Today I am recommending Angel's Serenade by Linda Weaver Clarke. This is a delightfully sweet and tender story. Emmeline Scott is not interested in a relationship except with a man who is a good fit not only for herself but for the young niece and nephew she is raising. Young Sam and Josie immediately take to the new doctor in town, Lucas Golden.  Lucas is equally enchanted by the beautiful angel music he hears everynight when Emmeline plays her piano. It is inevitable that these two should get together. If you love a good historic romance you will really enjoy this one. It will satisfy both your heart and mind. This book is the second book in the Willow Valley Historical Romance series and features appearances from the couple at the center of the first book in the series, Felicity and Nicholas. For more about the first book in the series, One Last Dance, see our previous post Tips for Tuesday - Books: One Last Dance. We will be talking about the third book in the series Pleasant Rivalry next week.



Movies: Scandalous the Untold Story of the National Enquirer

Mom - Today I am recommending Scandalous the Untold Story of the National Enquirer. If you thought the National Enquirer was a disreputable paper, you don't know the half of it. This documentary is very eye opening and explains a lot about the current state of the world. It delves not only into the salaciousness of the Enquirer's brand of journalism and the way it panders to the public's baser instincts, but also its predatory practices,  and the unfairness of its coverage. This unfairness is particularly highlighted in the way certain celebrities are able to block stories about themselves and in the handling of the 2016 election in which favorable stories about Donald Trump and unfavorable stories about Hilary Clinton were promoted through the paper. If you are concerned about what is happening in the world now and the way this country is heading, this film will shock you to your core and hopefully anger you enough to motivate you to go out and try to make a difference at least by excercising your right to vote in the next election.

And that's Mom's view.  Scandalous will be released in movie theaters this Friday September 15, 2019.

Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.

More Theater Monday - Just for Fun

We were given complimentary tickets to Just For Fun for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are own.

What: Just for Fun

Where: United Solo Festival
             Theater Row
              410 W. 42nd St.
              New York, NY

When: This event took place on November 2, 2019


Me - Just for Fun was a magic show. It was good. My favorite trick was one in which he turned a glass full of liquid upside down and the liquid didn't fall out, and he even stuck a straw in it and only a little came out. There were less big tricks than there are in most magic shows I have seen. However, it was still entertaining.

Mom  - Just for Fun was a show by Finnish magician, Robert Jagerhorn that was a part of this year's United Solo Festival. Unlike so many magic shows with their huge tricks that seem beyond the ability of anyone who isn't a trained magician, Just for Fun is a show full of tricks that seem so basic and simple that you feel like you should be able to do them. However, you still can't figure out how they are done, and you are amazed in spite of yourself. Jagerhorn's engaging personality and big smile throughout the performance only add to the enjoyment of the show. All in all, it was a fun afternoon of magic.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Tips for Tuesday.

11) News from Andrea Alton

Upcoming at United Solo Festival

Tuesday November 12, 7:30 PM Theatre Row/Studio Theatre

After a successful run at the University of Minnesota Free Play Festival,
experimental theatre piece The Self-Portrait Project will have it’s New York debut as part of the United Solo Theatre Festival on Tuesday, November 12th at 7:30pm.

Growing disillusioned by the constant self-branding in the world of art and theatre, writer/performer Joseph Bricker began working on The Self-Portrait Project as a way to criticize artists he felt, as Stanislavski might put it, loved themselves in the art more than the art in themselves. What resulted, however, was a meditation on the desires to make art and to have an audience.

In an attempt to create the ultimate self-portrait, the performer tackles existence as performance.

Taking aim at Shakespeare, social media, and the institutions that made the show itself possible, this iconoclastic piece asks what identity means in a world where we are constantly both viewers and objects. It’s a total mess. #pleaselikeme #pleasecome

Performancs take place at Theatre Row/Studio Theatre, 410 West 42nd Street (between 9th and 10th Avenues), New York, NY 10036. Subways: A/C/E to 42nd Street. Tickets are $45.00 and are available at the Theatre Row Box Office or at www.unitedsolo.org/us/2019-theselfportraitproject - or by calling Telecharge at 212-239-6200. Running time: 40 minutes.

15B) THE OFF-BROADWAY PREMIERE OF
CONFIDENCE (AND THE SPEECH)
A NEW PLAY
WRITTEN BY SUSAN LAMBERT HATEM
DIRECTED BY HANNAH RYAN
THEATRE ONE AT THEATRE ROW
(410 WEST 42ND STREET- BETWEEN 9th & 10th AVENUES)
PREVIEWS BEGIN THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2019
OPENING NIGHT SET FOR WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2019
PERFORMANCES THROUGH DECEMBER 7, 2019
Charlotte’s Off Broadway (Producer, Anne Lambert) is very happy to welcome April Armstrong (Ragtime, Carousel) to the company for the Off-Broadway premiere of Confidence (and The Speech), a new play, written by Susan Lambert Hatem and directed by Hannah Ryan (Hamilton, An American in Paris). Ms. Armstrong will portray President Jimmy Carter (replacing the previously announced Denise Burse) for a limited engagement at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street – between 9th & 10th Avenues). Previews will begin on Thursday, November 14 at 8pm with an official opening on Wednesday, November 20th at 8pm. Performances will continue through December 7th.
On July 4, 1979 President Carter cancelled an important energy policy speech he was scheduled to give the next day and disappeared to Camp David. Ten days later, he emerged from his impromptu domestic summit and gave a new speech, the Crisis of Confidence speech, which many now view as unprecedented, farsighted and insightful. Others think it may have ultimately cost him the White House. Forty years later, college professor Cynthia Cooper is approached by a stranger, a young man, and asked to recall her time with the Carter Administration during the days before the now infamous “malaise” speech. If she is going to tell her story of that time, she is going to play the President. And the young man who wants to know her story? Well, he is going to play her. This unique cross-gender play explores the confidence of a president, a nation in chaos and women in politics.
The performance schedule will be as follows: 11/14 at 8pm, 11/15 at 8pm, 11/16 at 8pm, 11/18 at 7pm, 11/20 at 2pm & 8pm, 11/22 at 8pm, 11/23 at 8pm, 11/26 at 7pm, 11/27 at 2pm, 11/29 at 8pm, 12/01 at 3pm, 12/02 at 7pm, 12/05 at 8pm and 12/07 at 8pm.
