RB's Stage 32 News, Notes, Discussions, and Other Fun Stuff (June 13th, 2014)

Posted by Richard "RB" Botto

Welcome to the weekend, 32'ers.  Happy Friday the 13th!

Full slate of news, discussions, tips, videos and Stage 32 Meetups...Let's get down and dirty.

On the entertainment front, I have the full list of Tony Award winners, the latest Hollywood Reporter Roundtable - this time it's fun with the comedy actors, a report on China's growing dissatisfaction with sequels and effects-driven movies coming out of Hollywood, a couple of cool articles on Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys, 10 actors whose careers may be in trouble, and Alamo Drafthouse leading the pack again by banned Google Glass in their theaters.

I also have a long list of Lounge Discussions including many from members of the community seeking advice and/or encouragement.  I ask that you have a look and help out wherever possible.  We're all in this together.

Further down the page, you'll find some videos including the trailer to Sin City 2, tips for actors, writers, and filmmakers, and, of course, all the Stage 32 Meetups happening around the globe.

As always, I welcome any and all remarks or questions in the Comments section below.

Have a fabulous weekend!
