Acting auditions, TV & Film Production jobs, Acting jobs, UK About The Gourmand - The Gourmand The Gourmand is an award-winning food and culture journal with a broad subject base and an international reach. Bringing together inspirational words, images, and ideas with the universal subject of food, the biannual journal was founded in London in 2011 by David Lane and Marina Tweed. The Gourmand is inspired by the multiple meanings associated with food across continents, and particularly by the exciting cultural shift that has taken place around producing, cooking, and eating over the past few decades. The Gourmand strives to reflect and inform this shift, and to recognise the communicative power of food, as well as its role as a catalyst for creativity of all kinds. Within the journal’s pages, the past, present, and future of food is represented with unparalleled images, text, and design. The idea for The Gourmand came out of a dinner conversation amongst friends at David and Marina’s table a few years ago. Editors-in-Chief David Lane & Marina Tweed Editor Ananda Pellerin
AMERICAN THEATRE | Whitewash ‘In the Heights’? Chicago, You Can Do Better Samantha Pauly with the cast of "Evita" at the Marriott Theatre. (Photo by Liz Lauren) Last week, Chicago’s Porchlight Music Theatre released the cast list for its upcoming production of In the Heights, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes’s musical set in the predominantly Latino neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City. Almost immediately, a number of people noticed that while a majority of the cast featured Latinos, the show’s lead and narrator, Usnavi—an immigrant from the Dominican Republic played by Miranda in the original Off-Broadway and Broadway productions—will be played by a white actor, Jack DeCesare. This news follows another Chicago casting controversy from earlier this year, when Marriott Theatre announced the cast for its production of Evita, a show set in Argentina, that featured only one Latino actor. As is customary these days, artists and activists immediately took to social media and to blog posts to vent their dissatisfaction. Edited to add.
