Why Did Bill O’Reilly Pay $32 Million? One Accusation May Be Key

2 hours ago

It’s a puzzling contradiction: Fox News host Bill O’Reilly paid an eye-popping $32 million to a woman who accused him of sexual harassment and something mysteriously described as a “nonconsensual sexual relationship.” Yet he says he did nothing wrong, and settled only to shield his children from his bad publicity. Why would the fallen king of the “No Spin Zone” pay so much for something he didn’t do? The phrase “nonconsensual sexual relationship” may be key, said attorneys who spoke with TheWrap.

‘Jesus Hopped the A Train’ Theater Review: A Prison Drama That Can’t Be Contained

3 hours ago

They say the show must go on, and that has proven especially true of the Signature Theatre’s star-crossed revival of the 2000 Stephen Adly Guirgis prison drama “Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train.” In the last few weeks, director Mark Brokaw’s production has lost both of its lead actors to medical or personal conflicts. But two remarkable actors — Sean Carvajal and Edi Gathegi — have stepped in and (mostly) hit their marks. Guirgis has written an issue play, with a capital “I,” one that touches on issues of crime and punishment, free will, religion and justice. And he’s built it on. »
