Critic's Notebook: Why 'Hamilton' Counts as a Legitimate Game-Changer

5 hours ago

Through unlucky timing, I was out of the country both for the downtown premiere of Hamilton at the Public Theater in February, and the opening of its Broadway transfer earlier this month. There's no bigger bummer for a theater critic than missing out on celebrating a genuinely original new work. Having arranged to catch the sellout production a little later at both venues, I went along with some trepidation. Would the ear-splitting hype spell inevitable disappointment? And if not, would there be anything left to say about the show after the sea of superlatives from my colleagues in the

MTV VMAs 2015: TV Review

11 hours ago

Even by Vma standards, the ads that appeared in advance of the 2015 show were unsettling: psychedelic ooze pouring out of Miley Cyrus' mouth and eyes. And sure enough, Sunday night's show was like a bad trip: entertaining at times, sure, but surreal — Women beefed! Men wept! — confusing and frustrating. Naturally, all VMAs are judged by the ones that came before. The best either had legendary performances — Madonna in 1984, Nirvana in 1992, Eminem in 2001, Lady Gaga in 2009 — or legendary moments (no need to recount them here). The worst were simply forgettable. (Remember the year that Lou Reed
