Photo-Illustration: by Vulture; Photo by Magnolia Pictures Regina Hall radiates gentle warmth and empathy in Support the Girls, Andrew Bujalski’s 2018 indie film about the stretched-thin but fiercely bonded employees of a Hooters-esque breastaurant called Double Whammies. As Lisa, Double Whammies’s long-suffering and incredibly loyal middle manager, Hall is both heartbreaking and low-key funny, maneuvering the insane machinations of her boss, Cubby (James Le Gros), the oft-perverse behavior of her customers, and her crumbling marriage, all while acting as something of a mother figure to the young, scantily clad women who work beneath her (Haley Lu Richardson, Junglepussy, and Dylan Gelula ). The role is an exercise in subtlety — Hall’s wide-open face contorts just slightly enough to let the audience know that Lisa is in pain, but not enough to clue in her adoring coworkers. It’s a revelatory, naturalistic performance that, coming on the heels of years of laugh-out-loud comedies ( Girls Trip, Think Like a Man, Scary Movie) and darker dramas ( The Hate U Give, Law-Abiding Citizen ), shows off Hall’s range. The film itself is just as quietly powerful, studying the bleak dynamics of late American capitalism and the way it intersects with structural sexism and racism without being didactic or losing its sense of humor. Its politics are baked into the story, like the scene in which Lisa’s white male boss takes her on a furious joyride around the city in pursuit of someone who cut him off, ranting at her about her job performance while she tries to manage his emotions so that she won’t find herself in a fiery car wreck, or when Lisa has to fire an employee who’s just attempted to break into the company safe, but lets him know she understands his desperation and forgives him. None of it would work without Hall, who, much like Lisa does at Double Whammies, gives Support the Girls a center of gravity, a deep sense of goodness, and a surplus … [Read more...] about Regina Hall Answers Every Question We Have About

Photo: Noam Galai/Getty Images Mayor Bill de Blasio would like this to be the “summer of New York City,” not just because Anthony Ramos looks really good in those In the Heights trailers . In an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe , the mayor announced that New York City plans to “fully reopen” on July 1, including stores, restaurants, gyms, and offices, at “full strength” due to the pace of vaccinations. De Blasio also said that theaters, which started off with limited-capacity performances in April , would open over the summer, noting that “you should expect Broadway full strength in September, but I’d love to see some of the smaller shows up in July and August.” Governor Cuomo would have the final say in reopening decisions, as de Blasio admitted in the interview, but this gives at least some sense of how the city’s summer reopening may go. The announcement marks the first big move to a full reopening of New York’s theatrical industry, which has been largely shut down since last March . At the moment, only a few theaters have started performances , while New York has begun to test out safety precautions and prime audiences with a series of pop-up events (originally co-produced by Scott Rudin, who recently stepped down ). Smaller theater companies will likely start to put out more work over this summer as restrictions ease, and there are already a few planned events in place — notably, the return of the Public Theater’s Shakespeare in the Park series in July. Broadway productions will likely take more time to return, as they rely on significantly larger audiences and casts, as well as rehearsal time. “Broadway takes time because they have to mount a full production,” de Blasio said. The Broadway League hasn’t yet announced an official timeline for reopening, nor have individual producers set dates for their first fall performances. But it’s long been expected that marquee shows might start performances sometime after Labor Day, around … [Read more...] about New York City Plans to Fully Reopen on July 1, Says Broadway May Return in September
