Nathan Andrew Miller is a junior at Niagara University studying Theatre Performance and English. He frequently performs on the NU stage and is also active backstage. He has had the pleasure of performing on a variety of stages in his hometown of Buffalo, New York, including the Alleyway Theater, Canisius High School, Kaleidoscope Theatre, Lockport Palace Theatre, Riviera Theater, Road Less Traveled Theater, Sacred Heart Academy, and Subversive Theatre. When not on stage, Nathan enjoys reading, writing, and being a complete musical nerd! He also enjoys sports, and will remain a diehard Buffalo Sabres, Buffalo Bills, and Chicago White Sox fan no matter what anyone says!
When you hear the name Charles Dickens, you almost automatically put in your mind an image of that cute little orphan boy roaming the streets of London picking pockets, or maybe the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future guiding Scrooge on a walk down memory lane. You probably don't think of The Mystery of Edwin Drood. In picking their show for the Curtain Up celebration, the Kavinoky Theatre did, and the entire Buffalo theatre community has benefited from it.BWW Reviews: Re-imagining the Classic MUSIC MAN at MusicalFare Theatre September 29, 2012
The intimate MusicalFare Theatre on the Daemen College campus is one of Buffalo's premier theatres. MusicalFare never ceases to amaze with the way that they adapt notoriously big productions into their space. Chris Kelly's re-imagined production of Meredith Willson's The Music Man is no exception to the rule. Kelly's directorial vision reduces the set to a series of tables and chairs which can be rearranged to indicate a different location, as well as ladders, used primarily in the "Marian the Librarian" sequence. His reduced set, as well as his reduction of the cast to 16 performers, is an absolutely delectable choice. Gone is the flashiness and unnecessary spectacle of a huge production, and what remains is the heartfelt and charming tale, along with a little bit of the necessary "flashiness" from Prof. Harold Hill.BWW Reviews: Looking through a Different Lens in ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD at Buffalo Laboratory Theatre September 25, 2012
