Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is celebrated as one of the greatest orators in US history, an ambassador for nonviolence who became the most recognizable leader of the civil rights movement. But after more than 40 years, few people appreciate how truly radical he was. The Radical King includes 23 selections, curated and introduced by Dr. Cornel West, including essays and speeches that were never recorded for posterity - a revelation for King's legacy.
I knew I had to listen to The Radical King when its all-star cast of narrators was announced, particularly because I was curious to hear how one of my favorite comedians sounds when reading something so downright serious. This collection of speeches and essays from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was bound leave me inspired, but I was quite surprised to also be . . . well, surprised! I thought I knew everything there was to know about Dr. King from textbooks and biopics, but perhaps because of length constraints and the need to stick to a certain narrative, the side of him that comes through in The Radical King was entirely new to me. Its selections reveal a man who was fiery, impassioned, and unafraid to tackle uncomfortable truths, and the effect is amplified by the poignant delivery of a cast of actors and academics who clearly appreciate the weight of his words.
Caddyshack is one of the most beloved comedies of all time, a classic snobs vs. slobs story of working-class kids and the white-collar buffoons that make them haul their golf bags in the hot summer sun. It has sex, drugs, and one very memorable candy bar, but the movie we all know and love didn't start out that way, and everyone who made it certainly didn't have the word classic in mind as the cameras were rolling.
With personalities like Doug Kenney, Chevy Chase, Jim Belushi, and Bill Murray involved, Caddyshack is one of those movies that comedy nerds everywhere hail as one of the best. Part origin story of the seminal humor magazine, National Lampoon, and part inside look into the making of one of the funniest endeavors ever to grace the silver screen, Caddyshack: The Making of a Hollywood Cinderella Story is a must-listen for anyone who is a fan of comedy. While devotees of the movie will certainly be drawn to the nuts-and-bolts retelling of how the movie came to be—which was a drug-infused train wreck to be sure—even casual fans will enjoy the look inside the cultural shifts of the 1970s that saw the rise of a brand of entertainment that has since become a pop culture staple.
All the Ways to Say I Love You by Neil LaBute, directed by Leigh Silverman, is a thoughtful, psychological solo play centered around the character Faye Johnson, performed by multi-award-winning actress Judith Light (Transparent, American Crime Story, Who's the Boss?). Reflecting on an event from her past, Johnson confronts the defining question of her life: What is the weight of a lie?
All the Ways to Say I Love You received its World Premiere production at the MCC Theater in September of 2016. MCC is under the leadership of Artistic Directors Robert Lupone, Bernard Telsey, William Cantler, and Executive Director Blake West.
Bonus content includes an Audible-exclusive conversation between director Leigh Silverman and actress Judith Light.
When we think of theater, we tend to think of larger-than-life actors trouncing about on an elaborately set-designed stage, sweating and spewing forth lines. So, when it comes to theater you experience only through your ears, a lot is riding on the aural experience. Thankfully, modern acting legend Judith Light (Transparent, American Crime Story, Who’s The Boss?) is more than up to the task. Her voice alone emits more emotion and mood than most rooms full of actors could convey, and it is perfectly suited to carry this show about an adulterous woman of a certain age reflecting on her sordid affair with a much younger man—who also happened to be her student. She recounts her story with such stunning realness it almost feels like she’s reenacting it right in front of you. The steaminess quotient here is through the roof, and the results of her missteps ring true for any coupled person who’s imagined letting extramarital desires drive them to make perilous choices.
