    🆕 blog! “Theatre Review: Alan Cumming is not acting his age”
    ★★★★★

    What a treat! Alan Cumming has the amazing gift of making a 2,000 seat venue feel like an intimate little club.

    Today in Labor History December 10, 1896: Alfred Jarry's play, Ubu Roi, premiered in Paris. At the end of the performance, a riot broke out. Many in the audience were confused and outraged by the obscenity and disrespect they felt in the performance. Others, like W. B. Yeats, thought it was revolutionary. Jarry’s work was a precursor to Dada, Surrealism and the Theatre of the Absurd. Ubu Roi is a parody of Shakespeare's Macbeth and parts of Hamlet and King Lear. However, having recently reread the play, I found an uncanny resemblance between Pere Ubu and Donald Trump.

    Today in Labor History November 3, 1793: French playwright, journalist and feminist Olympe de Gouges was guillotined during the Reign of Terror (1793–1794) for attacking the regime of the Revolutionary government and for her association with the Girondists. Her writings on women's rights and abolitionism reached a large audience in many different countries. She was also an outspoken advocate against the slave trade in the French colonies. In her Declaration of the Rights of Woman and of the Female Citizen (1791), she challenged the practice of male authority and the notion of male-female inequality.

    In a fascinating article, Andrea Addobbati and Francesca Bregoli use a recently discovered play in French from 1786 to mine into the rapidly shifting place Livornese had in the Tuscan public sphere, in the context of ransoming captives across the Mediterranean.
