Variety Unveils ‘New Power of New York’ List


If you’re in the mood for a meaningless power list, Variety has just the thing. Its “New Power of New York” features “a new league of movers and shakers upending the entertainment business in Manhattan and beyond … digitally savvy, entrepreneurial, and unafraid to ruffle feathers.” Sure!

In an effort to make the power list slightly interesting, Variety enlisted famous New Yorkers to author the features. David Remnick wrote about Ben Smith. Lena Dunham took on Leslie Jones. Jared Kushner penned a tribute to Ivanka Trump—ha! How stupid would that be? Breaking: Husband Thinks Wife is Great! No, actually, we’re serious. Kushner really did.
