Here's why Glenn really, really liked this Edgar Allan Poe play

As many of you know, Glenn is currently in New York City. Last night, he decided to go see a Broadway musical, Nevermore: The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe. The story mixes fact and fiction to create a theatrical experience which Glenn called "brilliant [from] start to finish." Read Glenn's Facebook post about the musical and watch the video to hear about what one of the stars of the show said to Glenn.

#Nevermore. Off Broadway.

Occasionally I wish I had a voice strong enough to really make an impact. Sometimes I wish I could wake people to what is happening in the world and, occasionally, I wish I could sound the call for a person or group of people that have dared to dream and be different.

When people really break the mold it is risky. New things make people uncomfortable. Real risk is high reward or massive loss.

#Nevermore is high risk and, I hope, high and lasting reward.

It is the story, fact mixed with fiction, of the life of Edgar Allan Poe. It is brilliant start to finish. I took a group of friends from artsy to warrior ranging in age from 25-55. Pat, who is uber conservative and traditional in his taste, sat next to me, a huge risk taker. Every one of us loved it. Tania and I didn't want to go out as we were really tired from a long day. We left loving it and energized.

It is funny, clever, uber smart without trying, unpretentious, really well written (very different in style, but as well written as anything Aaron Sorkin has ever written). The cast is perfect in every case. The costumes and vision are consistently in the pocket.

The best part is that in an age where Broadway thinks you need to be vile, disturbing or lecture people about Broadway values, this does non of that. While it is Poe, and thus dark, it never crosses into disturbing. While dark, and obviously contains stories of death and 'melancholy', it is hopeful.

How I wish I had a real voice that would impact this cast and crew in a positive way at the box office. I also walked out wishing I could tell anyone, even the backstage crew, "Job well done. Brilliant".

In a time when the lights on the buildings on Broadway are most times brighter than the stories told within, this show is blinding bright.

If you are in New York this is well worth the $75 and two hours. I would come to the city just to see this and, on that, we all agreed.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.
