Protect White Cishets From Getting Their Feelings Hurt At All Costs: The Musical
Patients taking the antidepressant Effexor (venlafaxine) should be aware that the drug manufacturer Pfizer has issued a recall of one lot of the medications after they discovered one bottle contained a heart drug used to treat atrial fibrillation.
The medication found is Tikosyn that was discovered in one bottle of Effexor XR. The heart medication could cause abnormal heartbeat that could cause symptoms of dizziness, sweating, pallor and fainting.
Patients should check their antidepressant for lot numbers 130142 and V130140, with expiration date of October 2015. Also recalled is Effexor XR with Greenstone lot number V130014, which expires in August 2015.
The antidepressant recall includes two lots of Effexor XR® 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules and one lot of Greenstone’s Venlafaxine HCl 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules.
The FDA warns the interaction between the heart drug Tikosyn and venlafaxine “could be fatal”.

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.
Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.
You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.
As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”
I just watched the rest of that previously quoted interview, and I’m so happy this guy runs The Public.
"The Public represents the idea that the theatre is a democratic institution, and needs to include everybody. That the theater is at its richest, not only when the audience is as diverse as the country, but when the voices speaking from the stage are as diverse as the country."
"James Earl Jones played Lear at The Public at a time when it was sort of astonishing to have a black man playing King Lear. Raúl Juliá, when he did Taming of the Shrew, Joe encouraged Raúl to speak in the beautiful tones of his native Puerto Rico, so he didn’t sound like he wished he was an Englishman doing Shakespeare; he was proud of being a Puerto Rican doing Shakespeare. Martin Sheen’s Hamlet, where he played Hamlet…in the accent of his origin, which was also Puerto Rican. All of that means that…it’s a home for actors to expand who they are, and by expanding who they are, they’re expanding what we get to witness and how we experience their humanness."
"Shakespeare in the Park is free, but the lines can last for two days, so what we have to do, we have to go out to where people are who don’t have the possibility of waiting in line. So when we go to the prisons and the homeless shelters and the various incarcerated audiences, what we’re trying to do is say to them, ‘This belongs to you too.’"
As far as I know, theater springs from religious ritual, a participatory even that everyone was supposed to be involved in. In most cultures, when there evolved a separation between spectator and audience, the theater was still for everyone. It was free or cheap, it was a communal event, it brought people together. My least favorite thing about theater today is this horrible bougie connotation it has. Broadway shows are heinously expensive, as are the really good off-broadway shows that don’t offer rush tickets. The importance and beauty of a room of strangers coming together and experiencing something together gets really fucked over when the people being able to have that experience are, in large part, only from the upper echelon of society.
Shakespeare in the Park will always be one of my favorite things. I’ve seen Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, Lily Rabe, and Oliver Platt on stage for nothing but the price of a lovely summer morning waiting on line for free tickets in Central Park. The Public also offers $20 rush tickets for their season shows for anyone, not just students, unlike Broadway shows (where the standard rush ticket is also at least $10 more).
Also note how in the last quote, he says “this is what we have to do.” The belief that if you are making some of the best theater in the country with some of the best actors, it is your duty to make it as accessible as possible to everyone you can. It is not for rich people. It is for anyone who needs a psychological outlet and a sense of community.
