“Life Moves Pretty Fast: The Lessons We Learned From Eighties Movies” by Hadley Freeman, Simon and Schuster, 339 pages, $16 paperback original.

Let’s start with “Steel Magnolias.” What is widely known now as as the Bechdel Movie Test for well-represented women in movies, came from cartoonist Allison Bechdel whose formulation was: A movie “has to have at least two women in it. 2) Who talk to each other. 3) About something besides a man.” U. K. Guardian columnist Freeman formulates the “Magnolia Test” to determine “whether or not a movie is a proper women’s movie: 1) The cast is largely, maybe even solely, female. 2) The female characters talk to each other about a million things other than men and genuinely like each other .3) And the relationship between the women is far more important than any they have with a man. 4) Bonus points if any of the following are in the film: Shirley MacLaine, Dolly Parton, Bette Midler, Olympia Dukakis. Triple for Sally Field.” Read More

When You Switch Up on a (Broadway) Star

New York Times
When You Switch Up on a (Broadway) Star
By BEN BRANTLEY and JESSE GREENJULY 12, 2017

JESSE GREEN The problem with successful musicals is how to keep them that way. Often the difference between a borderline hit and a smash depends more on the second cast, and the third, than the first. As critics, we get to see a parade of alternates and replacements in major roles; right now the biggest example on Broadway is Donna Murphy’s opening earlier this week as the Tuesday-evening alternate for Bette Midler in “Hello, Dolly!But we have also been keeping an eye on how new casts are affecting a war horse like “Kinky Boots” and, on a smaller scale, the long-running Off Broadway production of “Sweeney Todd.” Read More

It’s dangerous to read reviews – the good ones or the bad ones.

It’s dangerous to read reviews – the good ones or the bad ones. I was crippled twice in my career by bad reviews, and I almost don’t read them at all anymore. The bad ones hurt your feelings, and the good ones make you forget who you really are: They swell your head and they make you think yours s— doesn’t stink. When you stoop to that, whatever you had flies right out the window and you’re just a shell. You’re nothing. (New West: March 13, 1978) – Bette Midler
