Obie Awards

Are you a theater enthusiast, an experienced playwright, or a talented performer looking for recognition?

The Obie Awards is the perfect stage for both novice and seasoned artists. Thanks to a collaboration between The Village Voice and the American Theatre Wing, the Obie Awards celebrate the highest calibre of off-Broadway and off-off-Broadway theater to honor progressive work, support groundbreaking ideas and advance theatrical careers. The event is held every year in New York City, and prizes are given out for outstanding acting and performance, design/music, direction, playwriting, and special citations. Obie accepts applications from competent individuals regardless of where they live. The awards are given to encourage and recognize original performances, as well as to nurture and grow talents. The Obie Awards have given recognition to some of the most well-known playwrights and artists, such as Heidi Schreck, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Benj Pasek. For many years, the Obie awards were thought to be reserved for formal presentations. However, the awards were made informal to provide limitless opportunities for individuals worthy of recognition.

Most Obie Award winners received training at the actor’s studio, through moderated sessions, workshops, and readings. The Actor’s Studio is an important platform to foster creativity. It is an NGO whose members have been influential in many American theaters since World War II. It is one of the best training facilities for the Stanislavsky Method of Acting. The Method, developed by the organization’s founding artistic director Lee Strasberg, is a set of methods and exercises that revolutionized acting across the globe. Artists are encouraged to use their memory and emotional experience to prepare for a significant role. The place offers a conducive environment where actors collaborate without the pressure of commercial agents. Professional actors, directors, and playwrights can improve their craft and discover the range and depth of their talent with the aid of The Actors Studio.

The 66th Annual Obie Awards will take place in November 2022. The 2022 awards will be co-chaired by Obie-winning Director and Producing Artistic Leader David Mendizábal and veteran theatre critic Melissa Rose Bernardo. The judges’ panel includes actor & fight choreographer Dave Anzuelo, actor & playwright Becca Blackwell, scenic designer Wilson Chin, Obie-winning playwright Haruna Lee, theater critic & journalist Soraya McDonald, Obie-winning director & playwright Lisa Peterson, Obie-winning actor Heather Alicia Simms, and Obie-winning costume designer Kaye Voyce.

Antoinette Perry devoted her life to the theatre community. Starting out as an actor, she later became a stage director at a time when it was nearly unheard of for a woman to hold that position. Beyond her artistic accomplishments, she was tireless in her efforts as an activist, organizer, and promoter of causes that benefited and uplifted her Broadway “family.” She served as an officer for the American Theatre Wing and spearheaded many of the Wing’s wartime efforts. Passionate about bringing more people into the theatre industry, she also helped establish the American Theatre Wing Professional School, which launched the careers of Tony Bennett, Bob Fosse, Angela Lansbury, James Earl Jones, and other entertainment icons. Upon her death, the American Theatre Wing immortalized her legacy by creating the annual “Tony Awards” ceremony.

Carrying forward Antoinette’s legacy of educating the next generation of theatre artists, the American Theatre Wing’s Annual Gala aims to raise over $1.2 million for programs, including the Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative, the Jonathan Larson Grants, Springboard to Design, and The Network for Emerging Leaders in the Theatre, all of which open doors for the next generation of arts workers – on stage, behind the scenes, and in the audience.

Past honorees: Jonathan Larson, Andrew Lloyd Webber, James Earl Jones, Dame Angela Lansbury, Harold Prince, the Redgrave Family, Sir Howard Stringer, Frank Loesser, Jerry Herman, Carol Channing, Tommy Tune, Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, Isabelle Stevenson, Jerry Bock, Cy Coleman, John Kander, Fred Ebb, Betty Comden, Adolph Green, Marvin Hamlisch, Sheldon Harnick, Stephen Sondheim, Charles Strouse, Graciela Daniele, Kathleen Marshall, Susan Stroman, and Julie Taymor.

Elle features Regé-Jean Page on Canadian cover via 360 MAGAZINE.

Regé-Jean Page × ELLE

KO Media is excited to unveil the November issue of ELLE Canada, featuring British-Zimbabwean actor Regé-Jean Page. The star, who was catapulted to fame thanks the Netflix’s steamy hit show, Bridgerton, and is now the face of Giorgio Armani Code Parfum, tells us about working hard to portray a different type of maleness on-screen: “People think of masculinity and they think of strength, but we need to redefine what strength means. Is it an unwillingness to bend, or is there strength in vulnerability, in being able to listen and adapt?” He also aims to bring that nuanced point of view behind the camera. “As a producer, you have a voice in the conversations about what the story will represent and what themes to explore. It’s like adding a couple more strings to the guitar,” says Page.

For this issue, we spotlight women leading the way in their field by sitting down with the likes of Indigenous actor Kaniehtiio Horn, who grew up on Kahnawàke Mohawk Territory just outside of Montreal and has become a rising star, stealing the screen in shows like Letterkenny and Reservation DogsCurve model and musician Yumi Nu tells us about returning to music, while we go back to the roots with Jamaican performing artist SHENSEEA to discover what makes her tick in her revamped play on dancehall. We hit the books this month too, as Canadian poet Rupi Kaur talks about her new collection and international tour, and author Kate Beaton delves into the emotional and ecological damage left behind by Alberta’s oil sands, in a new graphic memoir.

It’s also a big moment on the beauty front, thanks to our 2022 Beauty Grand Prix sure to fight November grays with tons of juror-favourite picks, while musician Alicia Keys lets us in on her relationship with makeup and personal rituals. Brands display their rising advocacy in this issue, as Lancôme gives a behind-the-scenes look at how they’re putting inclusivity front-and-centre, YSL Beauty breaks down their new global sustainability initiative built around the planet and its people alike, and Toronto-based Céla puts Canadian plants in the spotlight. We also look at a different side of skincare by exploring its importance in the lives of cancer patients preparing for treatment.

In the style—and lifestyle—department, our editors let individuality take over hair-wise by showcasing cuts that highlight self-expression, and layered fall fashions paint the season with a splash of colour and textures galore. Owner of The Studio MTL and personal trainer, Val Desjardins, shares tips to get into top shape during these seasonal changes, while British actor Lucy Boyton makes her mark on-screen and in our pages, and French glamour queen Marion Cotillard lets us in on her fashion musings from the front row of the Chanel haute-couture Fall/Winter 2022/2023 Paris show. Finally, we slow down a bit by checking in for a quick trip to Rome and find out more about TikTok sensation Alexis Nikole Nelson, who details changes in the foraging community.

The November issue of ELLE Canada will hit stands and Apple News+ on October 24, 2022.  

Carson MacCormac stars in Netflix thriller film Luckiest Girl Alive via 360 MAGAZINE.

Carson MacCormac in Netflix’s Luckiest Girl Alive

Listen to Carson MacCormac chat with Vaughn Lowery on 360 MAG podcast HERE.

Carson MacCormac will soon be seen in a provocative, supporting role as a young Dean in Lionsgate‘s eagerly awaited thriller Luckiest Girl Alive.

”I think this project is fantastic. I’m really excited to be a part of its cast… The Crew and everyone on board is so talented, so I really think it’s going to be a good one.” That’s Carson’s take on his involvement in the project.

This forthcoming film, featuring Connie Britton, Mila Kunis, and Finn Wittrock, brings Jessica Knoll‘s best-selling novel to life. It tells the story of Ani FaNelli (Kunis), a young woman who has a perfect life in New York, which ultimately turns out to be a fantasy. Things change for the worse as she is forced to relive a traumatic incident from her teenage history. After being accosted by a documentary director, she speaks of the nightmare. Afterward, everyone and everything within her world begin to crumble.

MacCormac plays a cowardly and selfish student who is the catalyst for the unspeakable events which took place during Kunis’ adolescence. Carson describes his performance as intense, and it literally terrified him to get so submerged. ”It makes me sad to dive into it when I first got the script,” he says.

It is clear that MacCormac is an arts apprentice and enjoys reading and writing. While the thriller was based in the 1990s, this able-bodied actor handled both the vernacular and temperament of the game with ease. ‘’I love doing roles when I get to play characters that are in a different time frame, a different world,” he confesses.

Directed by Mike Barker and produced by Buddy Enright, this movie will have everyone locked on their flat screens while on the edge of their sofas.

MORE ABOUT CARSON

Carson is best known for his role in the hit DC Comics superhero movie SHAZAM! in the role of “Brett Breyer” and will be reprising the role in the sequel SHAZAM! FURY OF THE GODS (Summer 2023).  

Moreover, Carson starred in the lead role of Chris, a teenage runaway, in the gritty independent drama, East of Middle Westby director Brian Lucke Anderson for which he won the Best Actor award at the 2021 Montreal Independent Film Festival. In addition, he heavily recurred in Seasons 2 and 3 of popular series Locke & Key on Netflix portraying Benjamin Locke, who was the key to the mystery. The third and final season of the series aired on August 10, 2022.

Johnny Depp returns to Film Direction

The actor will return behind the camera for “Modigliani,” a biographical drama about Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani

Life is smiling strongly at Depp, and after what could easily have been the worst stage of his career, Johnny Depp returns to the cinema, and not only as an actor but also as a director.

The trial against his ex-wife, Amber Heard, brought a lot of headlines that did not leave either of them in a good place, but after having defeated the actress in court, Depp will direct for the first time in his 25-year career a movie.

Back in 1997, Depp starred and directed with Marlon Brando The Brave, a film that narrated the countdown of a man after accepting his own murder for money.

The American is shooting his next film in which he will star as none other than the French king Louis XV, although among his close agenda is sitting behind the cameras for his first film as a director: “Modi”, a biopic on the early 20th century Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani.

Not only will he co-produce the film alone, but he will also co-produce it with Barry Navidi and Al Pacino, the European arm of production company Infinitum Nihil. “The saga of Mr. Modigliani’s life is one that I am incredibly honored, and truly humbled, to bring to the screen. It was a life of great hardship, but ultimate triumph, a human experience that all viewers can relate to,” Johnny Depp said in a statement.

Modigliani

Based on the namesake play by Dennis McIntyre and adapted for the screen by Mary and Jerzy Kromolowski, “Modigliani” takes place in 1916 Paris and tells the story of Italian sculptor and painter Amedeo Modigliani.

The project aims to shoot in 2023, and it is not yet known if Johnny Depp will also act in the film. Amedeo Modigliani was already the subject of a biographical film in 2004 starring Andy García (Cuban American actor).

Although there is still time to start the project, everything indicates that it will be a most ambitious film.
