Director Pam MacKinnon on “The Parisian Woman” and the Glass Ceiling that Still Exists on Broadway

Pam MacKinnon: Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation

Pam MacKinnon is one of most renowned directors on Broadway today. She won a Tony Award for Best Director of a Play in 2013 for “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,” making her one of only a handful of women to receive that honor. She also earned a nod in 2012 for “Clybourne Park.” Her recent credits include “Amélie” and a revival of Wendy Wasserstein’s “The Heidi Chronicles” on Broadway.

“The Parisian Woman” is MacKinnon’s latest work to hit the Broadway stage. It was written by Beau Willimon, the Academy Award and Emmy-nominated creator of “House of Cards,” and stars Uma Thurman, Blair Brown, Phillipa Soo, Josh Lucas, and Marton Csokas.

We spoke to MacKinnon about her new show, her collaborations, and Broadway’s glass ceiling.

“The Parisian Woman” is currently playing at the Hudson Theatre.

Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down The White House – Review

As we reach that light-at-the-end-of the-tunnel that concludes the 2017 movie year, theatres are now filled with stories “inspired by true events” and “biopics”. This new release is a bit of both, like last weekend’s Marshall, this tells the story of one man, while focusing on one major event or incident of his long life. Unlike the former Supreme Court justice, this person was not well known by the general public. However, his “nickname” became legendary, thanks in part to a Best Picture Oscar winner. Though the film’s title may sound seem like hyperbole, it presents much evidence to support it in Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down The White House.

We first meet mark Felt (Liam Neeson) on a crisp May morning in 1972 as he readies himself for another day in DC as Deputy Associate Director of the FBI (the number three guy at the Bureau). After

‘Last Week Tonight With John Oliver’: Samira Wiley, Josh Charles Star in Spoof ‘CSI: Crime Scene Idiot’ — Watch

‘Last Week Tonight With John Oliver’: Samira Wiley, Josh Charles Star in Spoof ‘CSI: Crime Scene Idiot’ — Watch
Last night’s “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver” unmasked many important and shocking details about the complex world of forensic science. It also proved that the Olsen twins conspiracy has entered its most vital stage and gave us a “CSI” spin-off we could only dream of before.

Oliver shed light on the notable intricacies involved in actual forensic science, urging television audiences to combat the inaccurate accounts they’ve seen on shows like “CSI” and “NCIS.” As it turns out, fictional detective agencies have been portraying forensic science as much more accurate than it actually is.

The statistic that began the segment recalled cases that used forensic evidence for a conviction from the 1970s up to 1999, when DNA evidence became the golden standard. According to The Innocence Project, in 268 cases where FBI hair analysis has led to a conviction, 257 of those cases had errors in analysis while nine of

Liam Neeson is a different kind of hero in “Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House”

Ever since Liam Neeson began kicking ass with the Taken franchise, he has been seen as an unusual action hero. A number of genre efforts (plus sequels to Taken) later, and Neeson kicks ass much more these days than anything else. This week, however, Neeson has a vehicle to display his acting range in with Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House. This biopic says it all in the title, as Neeson is getting to play a baity historical figure at a time where this particular story is as prescient as ever. It’s a welcome return to this sort of material for Neeson, who too often isn’t able to show how wonderful of an actor he really is. This film is a biopic of, believe it or not, Mark Felt (Neeson). Felt was an FBI agent who would become better known as Deep Throat, the

Toronto Film Review: ‘Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House’

When it was finally told, in the pages of Vanity Fair, in 2005, the story of Mark Felt, the Deputy Associate Director of the FBI, and how he became the legendary Watergate mole Deep Throat was surely one of the most dramatic reveals in American history. Yet since the truth has already been revealed, how much drama is there left to the story? “Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House,” written and directed by Peter Landesman (“Parkland”), demonstrates that there’s a lot of drama left to it — enough, in fact, that when the movie is over, it leaves you suspecting that it only wedged a portion of that drama onto the screen. What might, theoretically, have been “All the President’s Men” told from a reverse angle feels more like a prosaically engrossing TV-movie that whets your appetite for a more definitive treatment of the subject.
