The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin (2017 USA / 90 min.) dir: Jennifer Kroot
Author Armistead Maupin’s San Francisco-set Tales of the City have inspired millions to throw off the shackles of conformity and claim their own truth. In this playful, sometimes poignant film, director Jennifer Kroot offers a disarmingly frank look at Maupin’s journey from the conservative Old South and the jungles of Vietnam to the epicenter of gay rights, the AIDS epidemic and the culture wars in which the PBS adaption of Tales played a major role. Helping tell ‘the untold tales’ are friends Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis, Sir Ian McKellen, Amy Tan, Margaret Cho and Jonathan Groff. Read More: // here

Here’s a disturbing thought: Laura Linney almost didn’t become an actress. “I fought against it for a long time; I felt I had to earn it,” she explained in an interview with actor/director James Naughton at Lincoln Center’s Bruno Walter Auditorium on March 6. Growing up backstage with her father, playwright Romulus Linney, she so revered the theatre that initially, she was “afraid to become a part of it.” Fortunately for her many fans, Linney did eventually embrace the craft, enrolling at Juilliard for her training.

When it comes to the Manhattan Theatre Club’s upcoming production of Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes, which will see Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon playing Regina Hubbard Giddens and Birdie Hubbard in repertory appearing opposite each other during every performance, it’s anybody’s guess at how exactly it’s going to come together. “It’s a big experiment for everybody,” says Linney, who actually suggested that she and Nixon rotate the roles and, admittedly, has no idea if it’s actually going to work. “I love that I have no idea.” For both actors, it’s quite possible the greatest thing about it. “The bizarre thing is trying to find your own Regina and your own Birdie while the actress across from you is also trying to find it,” Nixon says, while adding that the whole concept is “very liberating.” Read More: // here
