It's got a good beat, for sure. And you're going to dance to it, or, at the very least, move around. Mainly because it's either that or get smushed by a moving set. "Here Lies Love," David Byrne and Fatboy Slim's musical about the life of Imelda Marcos is energetic, catchy and entertaining but ultimately kind of slight.
David Byrne has been thinking a lot about numbers recently.
A former aide to ex-Philippines first lady Imelda Marcos was sentenced Monday to two to six years in prison after being convicted of scheming to sell a $32 million Claude Monet painting overlaid with political intrigue: It's part of a roster of valuables the Philippine government has sought to reclaim from the former first couple.
A former secretary to Imelda Marcos was charged Tuesday in New York with conspiracy to sell valuable artworks that disappeared during the collapse of Marcos' husband's regime in the Philippines.
A Philippine official said Monday that a legendary collection of shoes and other possessions left behind by former first lady Imelda Marcos and her dictator husband, Ferdinand Marcos, when they were ousted by a 1986 "people power" revolt have no historical significance, except for some Philippine-made gowns.
Former Philippine first lady and art patron Imelda Marcos on Monday joined Roman Catholic leaders in denouncing an art installation that combines religious symbols with phallic objects.
From the fist-pumping crowds to the anguished dictators, the pro-reform revolts reshaping Arab history resemble the 1986 Philippine uprising that booted a strongman 25 years ago. But the similarity ends with the killing of protesters from Tunisia to Libya.
"To desecrate some kind of a symbol for what some religions hold sacred, it is no longer right," she told reporters.
Aquino had agreed to challenge Marcos in a snap election in which she claimed victory, despite widespread cheating by pro-Marcos forces, and called for civil disobedience.
