When the tour of Sunset Boulevard came through Denver, Colo., Sierra Boggess sat in the audience in amazement. Years later, she took the stage in front of a global audience in the 25th Anniversary Concert of Phantom of the Opera. Boggess talks about her upcoming 54 Below album release and living her dreams.
Originally from Hawaii, Keala Settle had been singing since she was two years old. She's no stranger to scene stealing roles and this past summer, was nominated for a Tony for her work in Hands on a Hardbody. She talks to BLEEP about facing her fears, something any performer should read.
Betsy Wolfe knew in the second grade that there was a home for her on the stage and immediately following college at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, she made the move to New York. She's headed to Bullets Over Broadway in the spring and talks about juggling those rehearsals with performing at the Met two nights a week.
Krysta Rodriguez says that her current role of "Casey" in First Date on Broadway is a dream role because she's such a cool character to play every night. After having moved to New York 11 years ago with a goal of ending up on Broadway, she has not only conquered that goal but even helped share Broadway with the world on NBC's SMASH.
Katie Rose Clarke says she wasn't bit by the theatre bug until high school, but she's spent the years since then working around the country and on Broadway, doing some of the most beloved musicals in the canon. After having recently completed her run in Wicked on Broadway, she talked about what she's learned, what's coming up next, and what inspires her both onstage and off.
Also featured in the November issue, we take a look at Thomas Knights' new exhibition, "Red Hot" that is going up in London in December. This sexy new photography exhibit laughs at the notion that red-headed men aren't as sexy as their female counterparts. And speaking of sexy men, we have MTV's "Teen Wolf" fan favorite Michael Fjordbak talking about what he's passionate about off screen.
