"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Renee Zellweger Sings as Judy Garland

byMurtada Elfadl

The buzz is building fast and loud for Renee Zellweger's performace as Judy Garland inJudy.All we needed was to check the voice.Will she sing or will she lip sync a la Rami Malek?Well without further ado check it out.

This is not an exacting impersonation per se from Renee but rather an interpretation.It's just a few notes from one song...

ACS: Gianni Versace: "Don't Ask,Don't Tell"

Jorge Molina continues his review ofAmerican Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace

Season two ofAmerican Crime Storyhas taken a more thematic approach to its narrative than the heavily plotted season one.Each episode has been a miniature exploration of an issue revolving around the oppression of the gay community,but you could say that the main thesis has been the different ways in which being in the closet can hurt people: by isolating those around you (Lee Miglin),by taking away your way to keep fighting (David Madsen),by threatening your business and public image (as Donatella fears with Gianni).In the latest episode,framed around Jeff Trail (played by Finn Wittrock),it's how the closet prevents you from living the only life you want to be living.

ACS: ...Gianni Versace: "A House by the Lake"

by Jorge Molina

The greatest strength of the second season ofAmerican Crime Storyhas become the amount of care,attention,and empathy devoted to Andrew's other victims.For the second week in a row,the show steps away from the titular Versace case to tell a self-contained story about the humanity of one of them.This week we focus on David Madson,a boy that Andrew was infatuated with...

Feud: Bette and Joan."Mommie Dearest"

Ch.2"The Other Woman"

Feud's writing team is nothing if not devoted to playing to a single theme per episode.All but a couple of scenes in chapter 3 ofFeudare devoted to the notion of mothering (though Victor Buono's more generous notion of "legacy"might have been a smarter move for retroactive potency).Or at least the show spends this hour playing with our pre-conceptions of the mothering skills of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.That's evident in the way it pulls the episode title from the infamous Christina Crawford memoir that damned Joan forever in the public eye as a psychopath and child abuser.In one of the earliest scenes we even get a potent reminder of this memoir as Joan pretends she's not going to send Christina a card congratulating her on the opening of a play until she reads reviews,but then signs the card "Mommie Dearest,"as soon as two of her other children are out of sight.

I know what you think of my mothering...

Stage Door: Sally Field in The Glass Menagerie

by Dancin' Dan

This is not your parents'Glass Menagerie.

It's not uncommon for theatrical "reinventions"to take place nowadays.Ivo van Howe has made it into a cottage industry of sorts,creating an intimate,visceralA View From the Bridgeand a raw,elementalThe Cruciblein recent years.Sam Gold is of the same cloth.He made his name with an audacious revival ofLook Back in Angerat the Roudabout in 2012,won the Tony in 2015 for his sensitive in-the-round staging of the musicalFun Home,and most recently directed a searingOthellowith David Oyelowo and Daniel Craig off Broadway at the New York Theater Workshop.

But all those pieces benefit from a stripped back,in-some-cases radical rethinking.Tennessee Williams's memory play is a much more delicate thing,announcing as narrator Tom Wingfield does right at the start that this is a subjective work of art,a piece of memory that may or may not represent what actually happened.Productions of it generally take after the play's quietest character,the "crippled"Laura - they are generally fragile,gossamer things,as light and airy as a thought or memory hanging in the air in front of us...
