Holocaust play ‘The Soap Myth’ goes digital Jan 27, 2014 12:00 AM
In the spring of 2012, as the off-Broadway run of the Holocaust play “The Soap Myth” was winding down, its director wasn’t ready to let go. Arnold Mittelman, who also is the producing artistic director of the National Jewish Theater, felt “more had to be done with the material because of the power and impact it was having.” So Mittelman decided to film it. The recording will become available for streaming and download across the globe on Monday, which is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

More cars, coffee on Seinfeld’s Web talk show Jan 2, 2014 12:00 AM
Jerry Seinfeld loves cars. He’s fond of coffee. And, of course, he’s a comedian who loves to talk comedy. But the inspiration for his online talk show on Crackle, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” (wherein he and a fellow comedian crack wise while powered by a car and caffeine), was inspired by an episode of his eponymous 1990s sitcom. In that memorable episode, Jerry’s sad-sack pal, George, decided success might await him if he lived his failed life in the opposite manner. “That,” recalls Seinfeld in a recent interview, “gave me the idea to create a talk show that was the opposite of the typical show."

Facebook wants to know why you didn’t post that comment Dec 21, 2013 12:00 AM
We spend a lot of time thinking about what to post on Facebook. Should you argue that political point your high school friend made? Do your friends really want to see yet another photo of your cat (or baby)? Most of us have, at one time or another, started writing something and then, probably wisely, changed our minds. Unfortunately, the code in your browser that powers Facebook still knows what you typed — even if you decide not to publish it.
