Neo-Impressionist Georges Seurat was an influential visionary whose pointillist work launched a movement before his untimely death in Paris in 1891 at the age of 31. He spent two years painting his masterpiece, “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte,” in which tiny dots of juxtaposed color viewed at the right distance transform into a host of Parisians relaxing on an island in the middle of the Seine.
Almost a century later, Seurat and his painting influenced...
My historical research has been of great value in my work onstage. Understanding a playwright’s place in history: what may have formed her, what discourse did he have access to. My interest in military history is attributable to something else. My family had fought imperialism against the Spanish in Cuba, then against fascism in Spain in the 30’s, and in the 50’s my father actively worked against Batista, a usurping autocrat who nullified the country’s 1940 constitution. When my parents decided not to participate in their country’s experiment with a softer, centralized socialism, Castro-ism, they immigrated to the United States after having been sickened at seeing Soviets arriving in Cuba....

This is an ancient city
On an old stretch of land by the sea
Whatever I can say about
It, this country,
No matter how I flatter its flora
Serenade its birds
Praise, pay due homage to its elegance
Its ladies who handle their woven fans
Genuflect to its porous Taíno gods
Made red from baked earth
Though they all listen to my exhortation,
They know better.
This is an ancient city I walk in.
OMG, Thank You Hollywood Reporter for my mention on the eve of Season 2 Bloodline! “Vicente Cruz” mentioned as one of the things to look out for.
I find the writing in Bloodline to be among the best on television today (humble opinion). I find its stars to be terrific people, funny and hard working. Anything you could ever want in a show is fully present and accounted for. It’s a pleasure to work and learn from Kyle Chandler and Enrique Murciano.
“But unless you watched (or re-watched) the first season far more recently than when it debuted 14 months ago, you might not remember some of the more intricate details and subplots, which resurface in the second season. For instance, do you...
This is alarming. I have family members that behave in the same way as Zimabardo (of Stanford Prison Experiment fame) describes below. In a nutshell, the internet’s ability to supply constant and almost instantaneous novelty in all fields is opaquing our ability to socialize in orthodox ways for lasting relationships.
Lots of us remember being a kid in Miami during the 1970s. The small, sleepy southern city was just becoming the cross-cultural metropolis it is today. Denizens of Miami Beach, mainly retirees from the northeast–many of them survivors of the holocaust–would hold weekly dances on Lummus Park in South Beach. For immigrants from Latin America, these were curious cultural affairs.
Aqua-Blue, 1974 – Chaz Mena *
Papi, you’d drive wearing the thin neck ties
short sleeves, and a hat from your New York days,
inside our 1968 aqua-blue Impala.
An old rug crashed down on us every time you braked,
but Ana, sis, reached back and held it in place.
Another thing we learned was never to touch
