      The Ellie Fund, which supports women and families battling breast cancer, celebrated its 15th annual Oscar gala—the only party in Massachusetts that's sanctioned by the Academy of Arts and Sciences—on Sunday night.

    4. A&E Drafts Abstract Prison for \'Breakout Kings\' Launch Party [new York]

      A&E Drafts Abstract Prison for \'Breakout Kings\' Launch Party [new York]
      To mark the forthcoming premiere of its new drama series Breakout Kings, A&E hosted a jailhouse-themed reception at Stage 37, putting 236 guests in an environment that echoed the cop-and-convict premise of the TV show. But rather than create an uncomfortably realistic replica of a detention facility for the event on Wednesday, March 2, the network opted to single out specific imagery and disperse those visual elements across the raw, warehouse-like space. The result was a setting more conceptual than overwhelmingly thematic. To design and produce the event, A&E's publicity team tapped MKG, which employed lighting, furniture ...

      Twenty State Legislators Sign Letter to Keep Millionaire’s Tax to Protect the Poor and Minorities
      Open letters from lower-ranking politicians to chief executives are usually the tamest forms of political action: a nice gesture, quickly forgotten. But Governor Andrew Cuomo has managed to put some electricity back into the ritual. On Monday, 42 local Democratic officials, including several New York City Council members, sent a letter questioning Cuomo's credentials as a progressive; hours later they were blasted as a bunch of nobodies by the governor's handpicked leader of the state Democratic Party. "I read the breathless AP story about … local Democratic officials who disagree with Governor Cuomo's budget," his ally Charlie King ...

At one point during the last big awards show before the Oscars, guests crowding Elle magazine's airy but toasty green room included guests from the Sundance table, Taye Diggs and Kyle MacLachlan, who investigated one of the gray lunch bags custom-printed with the name Acura, one of three Elle advertisers sharing the room. “Sandwiches, cookies ...
