The Best Social Media Reactions to the ‘Cats’ Trailer

The “Cats” trailer is finally here, and the Internet isn’t too happy about it.
When it was announced that the beloved musical would be given the live-action treatment, musical theater lovers rejoiced. But many have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment — and downright terror — toward the film’s first trailer.

The trailer features a number of A-list actors and musicians, including Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, Idris Elba and Dame Judi Dench, among others, who appear as felines with human-like faces and bodies. The film’s director, Tom Hooper — best known for directing films like “Les Misérables” and “The King’s Speech” — has called the technique “digital fur technology.”
Many commenters are poking fun at said technology, comparing the actors to other iterations of this anthropomorphism in film, including in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” where Emma Watson’s character, Hermione Granger, accidentally transforms into a cat, and Mike Myers’ take on “The Cat in the Hat.” Others have taken liberty with the trailer by adding in their own edits, like one user who cut in the song from Jordan Peele’s horror film, “Us,” over the “Cats” trailer.

The Wimbledon Moments that Caught Social Media by Storm

At Wimbledon, the people watching is just as exciting as following the action on the court — with much of it playing out on social media.
This year’s two-week championship saw a number of celebrity attendees — including appearances from members of the British royal family — who brought their fashion A-game to one of the biggest tennis matches of the year.
Wimbledon’s royal box — which requires a “smart casual” dress code — saw Prince William, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex make repeat appearances over the course of the championship. To cheer on close friend Serena Williams, the Duchess of Sussex sat outside of the royal box on Day Four of the tournament, dressed casually in a white blazer and jeans. She later joined Middleton and her sister, Pippa, on Day 12 of the tournament, where Markle wore a Givenchy dress shirt paired with a printed Hugo Boss skirt. Instead of attending the final day of the tournament, Markle joined Prince Harry at the U.K. premiere of “The Lion King,” where the couple met Beyoncé and Jay Z.

Inhumans Movie Once Set for Today, Social Media Laughs

Believe it or not, a Marvel Studios movie was supposed to come out today. At least, according to Marvel’s Phase 3 slate revealed by MCU mastermind Kevin Feige years ago that featured The Inhumans. The Marvel film that never was initially sported a November 2, 2018 release date, but four months later along came a Spider-Man movie deal between Sony and Marvel that saw Marvel change several release dates and the Inhumans movie moved to July 12, 2019. The movie was originally going to come out after what was once called “Avengers: Infinity War – Part II,” which later became Avengers: Endgame. But plans changed and Inhumans was instead adapted to a TV show on ABC — one that bombed and was canceled after a single season.

The Best Social Media Moments From Fall 2019 Couture Week

Couture week might be over, but the viral moments are still reigning on Instagram.
While Celine Dion and her high-fashion wardrobe stole the show, many celebrities had their fair share of memorable moments at the fall 2019 couture week, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Zendaya, Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra and Kiernan Shipka, among others. Take Christina Aguilera, who turned up at the Viktor & Rolf show in one of the viral meme-inspired dresses from the designers’ previous couture show — an oversize tulle dress that read “F–k this I’m going to Paris.”

Others took to their Instagram accounts to document moments from the shows themselves, including the library backdrop at Chanel’s couture show — the first solo couture show for new designer Virginie Viard — and the finale at Valentino, where designer Pierpaolo Piccioli took his bow with his entire atelier staff, each taking a moment to hug and kiss founder Valentino Garavani sitting in the front row.

Sherri Hill’s Social Moments

With an audience packed mostly with showgoers (including kids) decked out in sequined dresses and other evening looks, Sherri Hill presented its fall collection of eveningwear, and pageant and prom dresses on the runway Friday night at Cipriani 42nd Street, followed by a party at the venue. Bella Thorne, Kelly Bensimon, Sophie Elgort and Jason Binn, who brought his daughter, were among the front row attendees.
The show featured 28 looks, many with Swarovski crystal embellishments, intricate beadwork and luxe fabrics. During the show, rappers Rich the Kid and Famous Dex performed on the runway — literally —  dancing, ogling, getting in the way, and blocking the models as they made their way down the catwalk.

Shaniqwa Jarvis Teams With X-Girl to Drop Capsule Collection at Social Studies NY

STREET-SMART FASHION: The streetwear brand X-Girl has lined up portrait photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis for its latest collaboration.
Compact to the degree that only three items are offered, the styles are available through Sunday at Social Studies NY, a multipurpose space and pop-up. To help spread the word about the collaboration, photographer Chandler Kennedy shot the painter and model Monica Hernandez wearing the assortment. A “Mini Me” crewneck sweatshirt retails for $ 95, the $ 50 “Too Many Rich People in NY” T-shirt and the $ 50 “Less, Less, Less” tote bag, which was hand-dyed by Jarvis, are up-for-grabs.
Jarvis, who has shot for Gap, Supreme, Riposte and others, dove into the capsule collection sector last year for the launch of her Baque Creative Press-published book. Started by musician Kim Gordon and stylist Daisy von Furth in 1994, the X-Girl brand has renewed its focus on New York, and is on the lookout for new talent and creatives that align with the brand. The company has more than 100 stores in Japan and has loyalists like Chloë Sevigny and Sofia Coppola. Early on, the Lafayette Street-rooted label rallied young feminists and that ethos remains.

Sustainability, Identity, Social Change Key Themes in Parsons Graduation Collections

More than 300 students from Parsons School of Design’s AAS Fashion Design and Fashion Marketing and BFA Fashion Design programs are exhibiting their graduation collections during a three-day festival that runs May 16 through May 18. For the first time, the exhibition is open to the public.
Spread over three floors of The New School’s University Center, the collections are curated by topical themes, such as Materiality, having to do with textile innovation, Social Justice, Systems and Society, as well as designs having to do with sleep, and a whole lot of gender and race identity. There was a lot to take in, with many of the garments on display falling under deconstructed, gender-fluid and fantasy-driven.
In terms of textile innovation and sustainability, one standout collection was by Gal Yakobovitch, who was inspired by her father who used to make surfboards in the Seventies. She sought to find biodegradable replacements for the classic materials used to make wet suits and such, developing her own tapioca bioplastic, gelatin glass and gelatin foam from ingredients that can mostly be found in a bodega and making her materials in her own kitchen. “This one is remeltable and recastable,” she said, holding up a rubbery material

Victoria Beckham Takes Top Spot in Social Engagement During NYFW

Victoria Beckham, Sherri Hill, Adidas Originals, Tom Ford and Ralph Lauren were the top five brands when it came to social engagement scores during New York Fashion Week.
The next five were Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, Alexander Wang, Carolina Herrera and Christian Siriano, according to ListenFirst, a leading social analytics firm. ListenFirst’s social engagement score is based on the volume of social post engagements, fan growth and brand mentions across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube and Google from Feb. 8 to Feb. 14.
Overall, “NYFW fall/winter 2018” was mentioned 478,000 times during that time frame, down 31 percent from the spring shows in September. Although NYFW was on the whole less buzzed-about this season, participating brands were able to keep their own engagement high, according to Miranda McWeeney, fashion and beauty industry lead at ListenFirst.
“Brands that followed the celebrity strategy, such as Victoria Beckham, won fashion week from a social engagement perspective, but the actions were unrelated to the collections. On the other hand, brands that struggled to keep pace this season had a high focus on the collections themselves — engagement with posts of this kind have a potentially higher value for the brand, but generate far less engagement,” said McWeeney.

Golden Globes’ Black Dress Code Means More Creativity, Social Statements

The call for actresses to wear all black to the Golden Globes now has an official name — Time’s Up, an initiative formed by 300 of the most prominent women in entertainment, including everyone from Reese Witherspoon to Shonda Rhimes. And it’s more likely than not that designers will fall in line to accommodate them — even when the overarching message is asking audiences to focus on something other than the dress for one night.
“There are actresses who have called designers directly to request their [previously chosen] dress to be made in black,” said longtime stylist Jessica Paster, who is dressing several Globes-bound women. “Designers have always bent over backward to accommodate an actress if they can, and this is an amazing time to be a woman, so I think they will do whatever needs to be done. It’s not about the designer — it’s about the meaning behind the movement.”
Naeem Khan is one such designer. A dress he custom-designed for presenter Christina Hendricks was originally made in gold.
“This was a big challenge in my world because everything I do is made by hand. As you can imagine, when you have 20 people working on a dress and you only

Teen Mom 2’s Javi Marroquin and Briana DeJesus Lock Lips in Steamy Social Media Post

Things are really heating up between Javi Marroquin and Briana DeJesus.

Over the weekend, the Teen Mom 2 lovebirds both shared a steamy photo of themselves locking lips on social media.

“King and Queen,” Marroquin wrote alongside the picture on Sunday, which featured the couple wearing color-coordinated outfits and kissing in front of a brick wall.

And on Saturday, DeJesus shared two other photos in addition to the snap, including one of Marroquin standing behind her with his arms around her waist. Letting the pictures speak for themselves, she captioned them with just a heart emoji.

In October, Marroquin told PEOPLE that he and DeJesus had “decided to make it official” after Teen Mom 2 reunited them for a reunion taping in Los Angeles.

“We are dating,” Marroquin said. “We’ve been friends for a while and we weren’t in a rush.”

The reality stars both have children from separate relationships. DeJesus, 23, has two daughters: 6-year-old daughter Nova with ex-boyfriend Devoin Austin, and 3-month-old daughter Stella with ex-boyfriend Luis Hernandez.

Marroquin shares 3-year-old son Lincoln with ex-wife Kailyn Lowry, who also stars on Teen Mom 2. He has a close relationship with his former-stepson, Isaac, from Lowry’s previous relationship with Jo Rivera.

RELATED VIDEO: Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars: Kailyn & Javi Feud over ‘Infidelity’

Since making things official, the two have frequently posted about each other on social media, with Marroquin flying to Florida with Lincoln and his former stepson, Isaac (from Lowry’s previous relationship to Jo Rivera), to spend time with DeJesus, her daughters and her sister Brittney at a water park.

But even though Marroquin is dating his ex-wife’s costar, it seems everything is fine between him and Lowry.

In an Instagram post in mid-October, Marroquin shared a sweet post of himself kissing his ex on the cheek. “Despite everything that happened between us I’m happy we are at a place where we can go to events..have a good time and be civil,” he wrote. “We’re doing a pretty good job raising these kids 🙌🏻 @kaillowry #oneteam.”

There’s still drama between Marroquin’s ex-wife and his new girlfriend, however.

Two weeks ago, during part two of the Teen Mom 2 reunion, DeJesus said she didn’t think she and Lowry could ever be friends. “It’s not going to happen,” she said. “We tried today and it’s not working out.”

Kim Zolciak-Biermann Says She Won’t Show Dogs on Social Media After a Stranger Called Animal Control Services

Kim Zolciak-Biermann is fighting back after someone reported that she was not taking care of her pets.

The Don’t Be Tardy star, 39, shared a series of videos on Snapchat explaining her story while focusing on a business card of an employee of the Lifeline Animal Project at Fulton County Animal Services.

“Apparently somebody thought it would be really cute to call the animal control center on my dogs today and say that they were not being taken care of,” she said. “I am utterly f—ing disgusted and appalled by the person that did this.”

Zolciak-Biermann continued by saying that her dogs are treated very well, pointing out that she recently spent $ 3,000 to take care of rescue puppies.

Due to the incident, the reality star said she would “no longer be sharing any part of my dogs and their life on my social media any longer.”

Reps for Zolciak-Biermann did not respond to a request for comment. The Lifeline Animal Project employee who visited her home could not be reached.

Earlier in the weekend, Zolciak-Biermann shared a video of her daughters bathing a puppy named Sage and another of her daughter playing with their dog Sinn (short for Sinatra).

 

In April, Zolciak-Biermann’s 4-year-old son Kash had a terrifying incident with a dog that sent him to the hospital and in danger of losing sight in his left eye. Since the encounter, Kim and her husband Kroy, 31, have slowly been reintroducing their six kids, Kash in particular, to more dogs to help them get over any fear of animals they might have developed after the attack.

“Kroy and I felt it was super important to continue to encourage Kash to be around animals,” she wrote in a May 28 Instagram post. “Kash is an absolute animal lover and I didnt/don’t want him to fear animals after all he has been through.”

She even shared a photo of Kash snuggling with a tame and tiny rescue puppy over the weekend, captioning the sweet photo: “How @kashbiermann has been spending the last 2 days!! extremely thankful @cheftraceybloom opened my eyes to rescuing puppies/dogs. Also thankful for the advice @iheartmiko gave me about reintroducing Kash to dogs sooner then later!!”

The Rolling Stones Pay Tribute To Chuck Berry With Touching Notes On Social Media

Following news of Chuck Berry’s death on Saturday, plenty of fellow musicians shared touching tributes to the rock ‘n’ roll legend on social media. Among them being The Rolling Stones, who considered Berry a huge influence on their own music. 

“The Rolling Stones are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Chuck Berry,” the band wrote in a statement on Facebook. “He was a true pioneer of rock ‘n’ roll and a massive influence on us. Chuck was not only a brilliant guitarist, singer and performer, but most importantly, he was a master craftsman as a songwriter. His songs will live forever.” 

The band’s lead singer, Mick Jagger, also shared a tribute of his own, writing, “I want to thank him for all the inspirational music he gave to us. He lit up our teenage years, and blew life into our dreams of being musicians and performers.” 

He concluded: “Chuck, you were amazing, and your music is engraved inside us forever.” 

Guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood also shared individual tributes on Twitter.

“’One of my big lights has gone out,’” Richards wrote, while Wood called Berry “my inspiration, a true character indeed.”

Other stars, including Brian May of Queen, Carole King, La Roux and Bruce Springsteen, also paid tribute to the rock ‘n’ roll legend. You can see more tributes here

Americans in Paris Court Social Media Buzz

GOING COCO: The venue on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré for this season’s Americans in Paris showroom was of appropriate significance — Gabrielle Chanel was a former resident of the first-floor apartment.
Nine designers participated in the 12th round of the showcase, backed by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue. All were newcomers to the event this season.
“This is Coco Chanel’s old apartment, it’s just amazing,” enthused Beckett Fogg, one half of design duo Area.
The brand has seen a lot of excitement this week over its accessories after both Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid were spotted wearing its jewelry out and about in Paris. “The accessories have been really popular with the celebs,” said codesigner Piotrek Panszczyk. “It’s really been helping, as people have been recognizing them as they are walking through. It’s been a great opportunity for us.”
Laurence Chandler, one half of men’s “elevated skate” label Rochambeau, said the brand was also benefiting from showing during women’s collections in Paris, he said, and had dressed influencers such as Georgia Fowler and Jourdan Dunn for the occasion. “It’s been cool to dress women, we like the idea of women wearing our clothing,” he said.

New Musical Aims To Speak To Those Rattled By ‘Social Injustice’

Broadway playwright and novelist Marc Acito and Grammy-nominated songwriter Amy Engelhardt are teaming up for a new musical project with a socially-conscious slant.

The pair have written a new musical, “Bastard Jones,” that is aiming for a spring premiere at The Cell in New York. The comedy is based on The History of Tom Jones, Henry Fielding’s 18th century novel which follows “an outsider’s quest for acceptance.” The book’s titular character, played by Albert Finney in the 1963 film, “Tom Jones,” is repeatedly rejected for being illegitimate. Both Acito and Engelhardt feel that plot point will particularly resonate among contemporary audiences given the struggles the LGBTQ community and other minority groups are facing under President Donald Trump’s administration.  

“In 1749, being illegitimate made you a second-class citizen. We’re channeling our rage at social injustice into a door-slamming sex farce,” Engelhardt, who likened the music she’s written for the show to “Candide, Spring Awakening and Meat Loaf,” told The Huffington Post. Added Acito, “Substitute any oppressed minority with the word ‘bastard’ and it’s the same story, different characters.”

The writers have launched a GoFundMe campaign in an effort to cover production costs. They’re also planning to donate all royalties and proceeds from the show to Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Fund, an advocacy group for homeless LGBTQ youth. 

Acito, who wrote the book for the 2015 Broadway musical, “Allegiance,” told HuffPost that his debut novel, How I Paid For College, was inspired by his own decision to leave home after coming out as gay in high school. Were it not for a friend’s mother who took me in, I easily could have ended up on the streets,” he explained. “I look at any displaced person—homeless, immigrant, refugee—and I don’t see ‘other.’ I see myself.”

Watch Acito and Engelhardt talk about the project in the video above, then head here to read more about the fundraiser.

Is It Angels Who Protect Social Entrepreneurs? Because Nobody Else Does…..

“Four corners to my bed

Four Angels round my head

One to watch, one to pray,

And two to take all fears away!”

When I was a child I would recite this rhyme before going to bed. Those were the days when we would sleep beneath the stars. Sometimes clouds and trees would take menacing shapes in the dark. I would shut my eyes tightly and think of the Angels protecting me and be comforted and drift into sleep.

Now it seems the Angels are back again.

Life was tough indeed when I took a conscious decision to establish Operation ASHA. My aim was clear- that of providing health solutions to the poorest of the poor. Suddenly life changed. From a successful doctor in an upscale fancy private hospital I became a foot soldier trudging long miles in shanty towns and villages. My appearance changed. I went from stiletto heels to sturdy walking shoes. I started looking unkempt and shabby, initially a deliberately cultivated look to be accepted by those whom I serve, and later a natural consequence of the kind of work I was doing.

People around me changed too. Many laughed. All were contemptuous. Most couldn’t understand why I would throw away a good income to start an NGO. Others accused me of exactly the opposite thing- of being desperate to make easy money, for isn’t that the reason why one starts an NGO in the first place? With two conflicting accusations being hurled at me at the same time, I wouldn’t know whether I was standing on my head or my heels.

And as for the uncertainty! The less I write about it the better. Words are not enough to describe the trials and tribulations I went through. Starting a social venture is bad enough, starting it without a sound financial plan to ensure sustainability is the height of absurdity. And putting your own savings in a social enterprise is the biggest financial folly one could ever commit. I thought my savings would last 5 years. They finished in one, like water trickling from a hole in a bucket. I had plunged headlong into choppy waters without the fear of drowning. Each day I managed to stay afloat was a miracle.

When you are a social entrepreneur, life is all about extremes. You swing from one end on the pendulum to the other. From the depths of despair you go to such euphoria that you are walking with your head in the clouds. There are days when everything goes wrong. You get sleepless nights wondering where the next round of funding is coming from, your best guy has been offered twice the salary by a rival foundation, and some government officer somewhere has absolutely refused to let you work in his fiefdom. Other days- you wake up and find yourself on top of the world for someone somewhere has recognised your work and your worth. One day you are accused of being a crook and a thief, next day, blasphemously, you are feted by the media as the next Mother Teresa. In 2014, the Schwab Foundation and the World Economic Forum selected me as Social Entrepreneur of the Year. I found myself rubbing shoulders with the Who’s Who of society and the hoi-polloi at Davos. I haven’t looked back since then.

But at all times there is an all-pervading undercurrent of anxiety. Social entrepreneurs thrive on the adrenalin rush created by the see-saw that is life. You may be fully sustainable, yet you can’t get over the feeling that you are like the wandering mendicants of yesteryears with a staff in one hand and a begging bowl in the other.

In this topsy-turvy world, few things happen to keep you going. Patients recover. Results are there for you to see. Children get back to school. Treated TB patients get back their jobs, and there’s money for food and to spare. Miraculously, funds start coming in time. Those that scoffed at you and laughed with derision give tolerant smiles. There’s an occasional pat on the back, a kind word. You go to bed happy and contented and you sleep well, for the Angels are back and hovering over you. And you know they are there for you and will protect you as they have done since childhood. For nobody else will.

The Millennial Drive to Make Social Impact – The Hollywood Way

There is a deep-rooted quality and shared passion that has recently emerged as a stronghold of the millennial generation – the desire, or responsibility, to provoke positive social change. “Social impact” has become one of the most popular buzzwords out there. Millennials commonly perform actions or dedicate themselves to causes to break down societal norms they find unjust or antiquated. This mantra of change cuts across racial and socio-economic boundaries.

Given this ever-present, almost looming sense of pressure to evoke change in a world so clearly divided by political, social, economic, and cultural lines; how do we – the current generation of Hollywood assistants and entertainment powerhouse hopefuls – justify devoting our hard work, time, and in many cases – sanity – to an industry that, in some ways, directly contradicts socioeconomic ideals of equality through its focus on status? Media industry professional devote much, if not most, of their time to answering questions such as: ‘What actor will drive the highest revenue for a film’ or ‘Which YouTube influencer’s, say, make-up instructional video will gain the largest number of followers?” “Which social media platform will attract the largest millennial viewership?”

My Dear Peers,

Justification for our involvement in this cutthroat, sensationalized industry emerges from a recognition of, and appreciation for, the thematic significance of a substantial portion of media content that drives viewership to multiple media platforms. It is this awareness that is – hopefully – the reason you took the courageous leap to enter this unbelievably competitive industry in the first place. Most importantly, these stories bring important socioeconomic, political, gender issues – you name it – into the public eye and further, provoke conversations that it is about time millennials actively debate and discuss. In Netflix’s hit original show Master of None, for example, Aziz Ansari brings racial stereotypes to light through comedy. Just this past year, the Sundance star The Birth of A Nation provided viewers an authentic recount of one of the most important slave rebellions in history, while Academy Award Winner The Big Short chronicled the corruption on Wall Street that less than a decade ago brought our country to the verge of economic collapse. Just these three examples of content blatantly present a diverse scope of corrupt narratives that have plagued our country for decades – if not centuries. The stories embodying such content are not only themselves powerful, but so too are their creators. Often, the personal anecdotes of content creators resonate even more strongly or on a more personal note than the content itself. Compelling content and the conversation that surrounds it illuminate and confront biases and unjust societal norms, offering provocative reflections of past practices that not only deserve, but it is imperative, are highlighted today.

It must, of course, be recognized that in orchestration with the proliferation of this caliber of content, it is technical platforms and social media outlets that provide creators the space to make themselves relatable, sometimes even vulnerable, in order to voice their stories in conversation with fans in an interactive manner. And as is obvious, media moguls are now hard at work attempting to determine the best means by which to monetize these platforms. It is, however, we – “digital natives” as they like to call us – that have the most in-depth comprehension of such platforms.

So it is not only the challenge and opportunity, but also responsibility, of our incoming class of entertainment professionals, to determine the manner by which powerful film and television content will utilize these platforms, working with them in tandem, to amplify the powerful narratives and messages they contain. Quality media content – be it a comedy sitcom, a late night talk show, or even a deeply dramatic film – that makes an important statement about societal norms, gender stereotypes, racial inequality – what have you – not only deserves, but now has a need of its own to be shared, debated, and critically examined by the masses. It is content of this scope that, working in concert with the incredible social platforms we are fortunate enough to have beneath our fingertips today, will enable us – media-obsessed, driven, young Hollywood hopefuls – to make “the change [we] wish to see in the world.” Particularly given the current state of global affairs and the pressing racial, economic, political, and social challenges that face the nation, the time to evoke this “change” is now.

Broadway’s Telly Leung Wants His Latest Work To Spur Social Change

When he auditioned for “In Transit,” actor-singer Telly Leung saw the show as a simple, but heartfelt, “love letter” to New York.

Billed as Broadway’s first-ever a cappella musical, the show follows 11 frazzled Manhattanites whose disparate lives intersect on the city’s subway system. In it, Leung stars as Steven, whose fiancée Trent (Justin Guarini) is struggling to tell his born-again Christian mother about the mixed race couple’s relationship before their wedding. (Watch the trailer for “In Transit” above.) 

Given musical theater’s recent embrace of queer themes in “Fun Home” and “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” among other shows, Steven and Trent’s storyline seems conventional enough, especially as it is one of many character arcs in the ensemble piece. One day before “In Transit” began previews on Nov. 10, however, the future of LGBTQ rights was thrust into uncertainty following Donald Trump’s surprise accession to the U.S. presidency. Suddenly, Leung said, the show’s all-inclusive message was given a renewed sense of purpose.

“The whole show is about people who are trying to get somewhere and feeling a bit stuck, a bit helpless. New Yorkers are driven and we’re always trying to get somewhere,” the 36-year-old “Glee” veteran told The Huffington Post before “In Transit” opened on Broadway Dec. 11. “It’s frustrating when we don’t get there.”

But it isn’t just the queer aspect of “In Transit” that gives the musical, which was written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez, James-Allen Ford, Russ Kaplan and Sara Wordsworth, a sense of urgency in Leung’s eyes. Seeing the show’s diverse cast – which includes Margo Seibert, James Snyder, Erin Mackey and Nicholas Ward – work “in harmony together, visually and audibly,” is “something that we all really need at this time in our country,” he said.

Interestingly, “In Transit” debuts at a time when one of Leung’s earlier projects is getting a new life. “Allegiance,” which follows a Japanese-American family thrown into an internment camp when the U.S. enters World War II, will be shown Tuesday on 600 movie screens across the country.

That musical, which also starred Tony winner Lea Salonga and “Star Trek” icon George Takei, enjoyed a successful out-of-town run in San Diego, California. Despite Takei’s outspoken passion for the project, the show received mixed reviews when it hit Broadway in November 2015, and closed in February after 111 performances.

Given the nation’s political climate, Leung hopes the film version of “Allegiance” is received differently. The show, he said, can now been seen as an important reminder to those now grappling with Trump’s divisive rhetoric on minority groups. 

“It was always in the artistic vision of our producers to create a Broadway show that not only seeks to entertain, but educate and bring about some social change, too,” he said. “This story needs to live on, and there are lessons to be learned.”

Collectively, both “In Transit” and “Allegiance” are important reminders that “art doesn’t exist in a vacuum at times like this,” Leung said. “That message is more important now than ever.”

Telly Leung stars in “In Transit,” now playing at the Circle in the Square Theater in New York. Head here for more information.
