- Fun home or an American in Paris? May 13
2015, 10:02:19 AM
It's just so difficult to choose a winner out of these two shows. They are both so different and so special. An American in Paris is big, and gorgeous and classic Broadway, and Christopher Wheeldon's direction and choreography is some of the best I've EVER SEEN. Fun Home on the other hand is a game-changer. It is completely original and intimate. I loved them both so much, and felt so much while watching them. I think that Fun Home is going to win due to the momentum it's gained this season a
- Hand to God Play Publication May 11
2015, 01:24:11 AM
Hey guys! I was in the city this weekend and saw Hand to God and really fell in love with the play. Along with the powerhouse performances given by the 5 performers onstage, I was also so taken by Robert Askin's writing. Does anyone know when it is going to be published so I can buy it?
I also caught the 4 Best Musical nominees which was so exciting. Each so different from the other!

- Show advice! Apr 23
2014, 01:13:57 AM
Ok, so I'm going to be in NYC for a short time at the end of this week, and need some advice as to which show I should see. I am there this coming Sunday and Monday. On Monday evening I am seeing Heathers, but I am completely torn as to what I should see Sunday afternoon. I am trying to decide between..
Bullets Over Broadway
Based on those shows, do you have any recommendations as to which one I should see? Or if there is a sh

Keys and vocal stuff aside, could this work as a man in drag?
- I'm giving away a Fosse Biography-Merry Christmas! Dec 24
2013, 01:11:51 AM
Ok, one of my favourite theatrical moments was when I was playing the Baker in INTO THE WOODS this past year at my highschool. I had been having a lot of troubles with performing in previous shows because I was finding it difficult to perform for myself rather than focus on what the audience was going to think. I began the short run at my highschool and decided that I was purely going to do this role for myself, and it became one of my most favourite roles I have ever done. A

- re: what would be your dream role to play on broadway and why Dec 21
2013, 02:51:41 PM
I just want to be on Broadway, no matter what role I get! But my dream roles currently are Tobias in Sweeney Todd or Dickon in The Secret Garden! There are so many amazing roles though! Charley in Merrily We Roll Along is another great one! Oh my god, also The Baker in Into the Woods.
- Finest acting performances on Broadway? Dec 20
2013, 11:28:59 PM
Having only seen 8 Broadway shows in my short life, I don't have much to work with, but I have seen some incredibly inspiring performances!
I found Norbert Leo Butz's performance in Catch Me If You Can to be a powerhouse! So much fun, and so thrilling to watch. Also Douglas Hodge in La Cage and Rachel Bay Jones in Pippin had a huge effect on me! I feel very fortunate to have seen the shows I've seen!

I would LOVE to see Redhead or Applause revived, but really don't think either will ever happen.
- Matilda Balcony View Sep 2
2013, 10:36:13 PM
I sat near the top of the balcony and the view was basically perfect. There are some points where actors walk in from orchestra level that I missed, but it didn't matter!
- Finch or Frump? Aug 25
2013, 12:26:19 AM
Frump is a fantastic role! (I love it, considering my username). Charles Nelson Reilly won a Tony Award for playing him in the OBC! Just don't TRY to steal scenes, just do the role and don't base it off of the fact that you want to steal scenes, or else your performance will come off as annoying!
Have fun, and break a leg!
