Daily Rehearsal: 'Boss' casts locally
1. A little belated, but Michelle Williams was spotted at Middletown last week. And yes, that's Michelle Williams of Dawson's Creek fame, not the other D.C., Destiny's Child.
3. There were live performances of the Declaration of Independence this weekend, but every year, NPR's Morning Edition reads it aloud on-air on the Fourth of July. It's slow and steady and serious, and takes about 9 minutes.
4. Mary Hollis Inboden is having her day in the sun; the Southern-born actress is currently starring in 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche, and though her role at Jennifer Beals' assistant on The Chicago Code ended with the shows cancellation, she's moved over to the Kelsey Grammer helmed Boss. She's part of a grand tradition of Chicago actors on the show, which has tried to be anti-The Good Wife and shoot locally.
5. Labor disputes between Joffrey dancers and the company continue; after news broke of a lockout this weekend, union organizers are now arguing that it's just an attempt to gain publicity and pressure the dancers into bending to their will. Let's hope this all ends peacefully, folks.
