If you have ever wanted to be in the spotlight but have found yourself deterred from taking on the challenge of an audition, then I have the perfect solution for you. While the glitz and glamor of acting on stage is what catches most people’s eye in the theater, it isn’t always possible to get on stage, whether that be because you couldn’t land the part, or didn’t have the confidence to take on an audition. Thankfully though, there is a way to engage with the theater that doesn’t involve performing for an audience. Every theater production needs a crew to put together the world that the cast will be acting in. Take it from me, someone who has been in both the cast and crew before, working in a theater crew is a great way to build up the confidence and know-how needed to nail that next audition.
Starring the English actress and screenwriter Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Fleabag is a comedy one woman show. Fleabag is the best story and script I have seen on television for a long time.

Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, better known as “Lula”, replaced Brazil’s far-right former president Bolsonaro. Bolsonaro notoriously supported the illegal farming of the Amazon Rainforest. His handling of covid also left Brazil’s indigenous population more vulnerable to the virus. Beyond harming his country’s land and people, he also threatened Brazil’s democracy. Bolsonaro has yet to concede the election– an election he has decidedly lost. Bolsonaro refused to attend Lula’s inauguration and now lives in Orlando, Florida, where he avoids criminal investigations.

A historic new group of leaders were chosen by House Democrats on Wednesday. As the new head of the Democratic Caucus, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York will take over for Nancy Pelosi. The 52-year-old Jeffries will lead a party in Congress for the first time as a Black lawmaker.

Members cast secret ballots during elections that were conducted behind closed doors. The three sprinted unchallenged.
