Tcg Holds Annual Gala

The national organization for the American theater, Theatre Communications Group (Tcg), celebrated its annual gala on Monday, Nov. 10 at 583 Park Avenue in Manhattan. In addition to preview performances of “A Walk on the Moon” directed by Michael Greif, and “Immediate Family” directed by Phylicia Rashad (“The Cosby Show”), Tcg honored lighting designer Jules Fisher, Pulitzer-winning playwright Lynn Nottage, and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. “It was Doris’ habit of investing in artists in her own lifetime, many artists who were dismissed in their own time when in fact, they were simply ahead of the times in which they lived,” said program director for the arts Ben Cameron when he accepted the award on behalf of the foundation. “It gives us license to do what we do.” Cameron went on to say Duke donated $50 million to “invest in multi-year, largely fledged fellowships for artists to help them save for their retirements.

Happy Birthday Phylicia!

Happy Birthday Phylicia!
Sunday may have been dedicated to dads, but today is all about everybody's favorite TV mom. The Tony Award and Emmy Award-winning actress Phylicia Rashad turns 64 today.

Rashad stole the world's hearts as the poised and elegant lawyer, wife and mother Claire Huxtable on the 1980s sitcom "The Cosby Show." She has also graced both the stage and the big screen in her roles in Lorraine Hansberry's "Raisin In The Sun" and Tyler Perry's "For Colored Girls." To add to her already lofty resume, she is donning her director's hat for the play "The Immediate Family," that tells the story of siblings living in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood.

Whether on stage, on television or even on the red carpet Rashad is always the epitome of class and sophistication, and after shedding 35 pounds she looks better than ever! So in honor of America's mother, we've pulled together some of

Marina Lutz interview: The sins of my father

For the first 16 years of her life, Marina Lutz's every moment was filmed, even the most intimate. What was her father's motive – and when does art become exploitation?

When Marina Lutz, then aged 37, lost her mother to dementia 10 years after losing her father, she began the slow process of going through their storage. There she found box after box of reel-to-reel audio tape, Super-8 films and more than 10,000 photographs. They were all of her, each one taken or shot by her father, Abbot Lutz, microscopically documenting the first 16 years of her life through the prism of his lens. There were pictures of her on the lavatory, pictures of her naked as a pre-verbal child, some in which her hand was innocently holding her genitals; pictures of her in her underwear as a pubescent girl and footage of her asleep with her teddies, tossing and turning while having a dream.

1.78 Million Facebook Users May Die in 2011

Does Facebook really have more than 500 million "active" users?

According to data from digital-legacy planning firm Entrustet, a big portion of these users will soon no longer be considered "active," by any reasonable measure. The company compared Facebook usership data with average death rates from the Center for Disease Control, and discovered that this year, around 480,000 Facebook users may pass away in the U.S., and 1.78 million worldwide. These figures are only likely to grow year to year, especially as Facebook expands pass the 600 million user mark.

So many profiles now fall out of the range of an "active" user. Beyond the deceased, there are endless duplicate accounts--Entrustet found that 150% of 20- to 24-year-olds in the U.S. are on Facebook--not exactly a plausible tally. What's more, a recent Gartner report estimated that in the coming years, roughly one in every ten of your friends on Facebook and other social networks will be nonhuman,
