GAL APPROVED! Watch This: All The Way, Billboard Awards 2016 & The Midnight Experience!By The DivaGals | May 20, 2016 | Gal Approved
WATCH. The DivaGals were invited to a screening of HBO’s film All The Way, airing on the network this weekend. Based on the Broadway drama, it chronicles the presidency of Lyndon B. Johnson, who ascended from vice president to the commander in chief after John F. Kennedy‘s assassination. Determined to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964, President Johnson employed intense tactics and played the houses to get his way. President Johnson worked with Martin Luther King Jr., played by Anthony Mackie, to get support from black Americans ΓÇô many who were still denied the right to vote. The portrayal of these two history-making figures isn’t sanitized ΓÇô LBJ is brash and abrasive, and his primary goal — to win his presidency — takes precedence, while MLK’s infidelity is explored. And one of saddest moments in the Civil Right’s fight, the brutal murders of activists James Earl Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael “Mickey” Schwerner in Mississippi, is remembered in the film. All these moments add up to a riveting trip through American history for the fight for equality ΓÇô one that’s hard to believe is still being fought on American soil today. All The Way airs Saturday, May 21 at 8 p.m. on HBO.

SEE. So I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect when my friend and I went to The Cutting Room in New York City to watch A Midnight Experience, but it definitely did not disappoint. It started with an incredibly funny host who was not shy to advertise to the audience what unique talent he possesses as well. The acts to follow were all extremely sexy and entertaining that had everyone roaring for more. The performers were all highly interactive with the audience that made it comfortable for everyone to enjoy themselves.
