The Toronto Star: “Wicked,” the beloved musical prequel to “The Wizard of Oz,” continues to captivate audiences with its enchanting spectacle and profound allegory about the dangers of fascism. Set against the backdrop of a highly anticipated film adaptation starring Cynthia Erivo and Ariana Grande, the musical’s themes of societal complacency and political manipulation resonate deeply in today’s sociopolitical climate. The North American touring production in Toronto showcases stellar performances, particularly from Lauren Samuels as the misunderstood Elphaba and Austen Danielle Bohmer as the ambitious Glinda. Despite some sound design issues and a mixed reception to Stephen Schwartz’s pop score and Winnie Holzman’s narrative, the production’s powerful message and visual grandeur ensure its enduring appeal.

Yahoo US: The cancellation of “Tokyo Vice” after just two seasons marks another disappointment for fans of Max’s original programming. The show, based on Jake Adelstein’s memoir and starring Ansel Elgort and Ken Watanabe, delved into the gritty world of Tokyo’s Yakuza during the late '90s and early 2000s. Despite critical acclaim for its engrossing narrative and stellar performances, the decision to end the series aligns with a troubling trend of Max discontinuing promising shows after their sophomore seasons. The creators, J.T. Rogers and Alan Poul, expressed gratitude for the opportunity but hinted at potential future developments. The loss of “Tokyo Vice” raises concerns about Max’s commitment to narrative television, with comparisons to legacy shows like “The Wire” suggesting it might have thrived better under the HBO banner.

Yahoo US reports that Bill Lunn, the former news director and anchor at KTBS, has resigned following his identification as a suspect in an ongoing investigation into potential child sex crimes.

The situation unfolded when Lunn called the police, alleging an assault by several men who attempted to steal his car—a claim that police later found to be false. It appears Lunn had intended to meet a juvenile during his lunch break, but the men who confronted him were the ones who reported his alleged crime to the authorities. KTBS General Manager George Sirven confirmed Lunn’s departure from the station and noted that KTBS had initiated its own investigation upon learning of the incident.
