If you are a member of the LGBTQ community, chances are you've heard of the unimaginable persecution of gay men in Russia in recent years. Most shockingly, several years ago, neo-Nazi groups began attracting men with promises of sex via hookup apps, only to brutalize them on video to destroy their lives and teach them the lesson that homosexuality is a diabolical western plague.
In Frank J. Avella's revelatory play Lured, playing now through November 25 at Theater for the New City (155 First Ave., NYC), this grotesque violation of humanity is dramatized in an ingenius way that contextualizes the trend while never flinching from portraying the depravity.

Wearing a blue suit in the federal district courthouse in Washington, D.C. on Friday morning, Manafort smiled and shook hands with his defense counsel before answering compulsory questions from the judge.
Prosecutors, who made a point of noting the activity occurred “at least through 2016,” used bank records and other documents to show what they say Manafort did to hide evidence of his work for Ukrainian politicians, hide millions in proceeds in offshore accounts, and then spend the money lavishly on clothing, luxury items, homes and cars.
Trump's awful year has gotten worse and worse.

Rosie O'Donnell — who Trump hates more than people in T-rex suits — led a band of performers from the Broadway shows Hamilton, Les Misérables and Wicked to the White House Monday to sing and protest their hearts out.
They were joined by Jim Obergefell, the man whose name is forever linked to marriage equality in the U.S.; and Kristin Mink, the woman who confronted EPA boss Scott Pruitt in a restaurant.
