Ever since I first interviewed playwright Joe Tracz a few years ago for his musical Be More Chill, I have kept my eye on what he has been creating. It's such a joy to catch up with him on his latest endeavors: Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events (starring Neil Patrick Harris) & the new, original Off-Broadway show The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical, currently playing at The Lucille Lortel Theatre in NYC through 5/6!
I am beyond thrilled to sit down with writer/comedian Adrienne Truscott. After seeing her one-woman show Asking For It, a show about the rules & rhetoric about rape, comedy & the awkward laughs in between, I, have the upmost respect for Adrienne, her comedy style, & braveness in tackling the subject of rape. Now Adrienne is back with her new show THIS, a solo performance ever-evolving work that writes, in real time. THIS will be performed at New York Live Arts 4/5-4/8 at 7:30pm!
For over 10 years I have been hooked on Sally Schwab's glorious vocals! Sally is bringing back her one woman show Adventures in Babysitting, for three performances only, which recounts Sally's story of arriving to the Great White Way as a young, wide-eyed aspiring theatre actress. Adventures in Babysitting will play 4/3 at 7pm, 4/17 at 9:30pm, and 5/1 at 7pm!
To see Nathan Lee Graham in The View UpStairs is truly remarkable. He gets everyone's attention whenever he is strutting his stuff on stage. From his fantastic acting to that golden voice he belts out night after night. His talent is like no other! The View UpStairs is a provocative new musical that pulls you inside the UpStairs Lounge, a vibrant '70s gay bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The View UpStairs will play The Lynn Redgrave Theater NYC thru 5/21!
Education has always been an important part of my life, which is why I continue to keep keep learning as much as I can. When I was asked to interview Laurence Maslon, an expert on Broadway/Musical Theatre, I jumped at the opportunity. We talked about teaching musical theatre history, famous students, favorite Broadway shows, PBS specials, & so much more! Laurence hosts the weekly NPR radio show Broadway to Main Street, which airs Sundays at 3pm on NPR affiliate WPPB/88.3FM!
