"You have to be prepared to keep doing it, keep trying no matter what. No one's just going to hand you a career. I waited for years for someone to hand me one and it never happened."
I have a hard time translating the concept of "people of color" with all its heavy, powerful meaning to our experience in Mexico. Race and racism are not topics present on the media, much less on off-screen daily conversations.
Meron and Zadan's partnership initially took shape in New York City at the Public Theater, where, working for producer Joe Papp, they adopted the legendary producer's forward-looking ethos of color-blind casting and championing minority writers.
Since our son announced he was gay, we have been fighting for his right to be himself. We make sure those in our life and his are on board, and he's never given the message that something is wrong with him.

Let the athletes pump iron -- you can get pumped up to this mix of Glee, Kanye West, and Bon Jovi.
Pentatonix has every chance of becoming the first a cappella group to truly go mainstream. The five of them are a formidable musical force, creating full, interesting arrangements that sound as good (and, on occasion, better) than the songs they're covering.
