by BWW News Desk - Aug 18, 2015

The National YoungArts Foundation (YoungArts) today announces the second annual YoungArts Awareness Day, a national campaign recognizing the organization's impact on thousands of emerging artists with a call-to-action for future generations. Slated for Thursday, September 24, 2015, this year's events will take place on the heels of National Arts in Education Week to emphasize the growing need for programs that foster development, provide access to financial rewards, and present the arts as a viable career path-especially as schools are rapidly eliminating the arts within their curricula.

SOUND OFF Special Edition: 10 Classic Roles Ready For Gender-BendingSOUND OFF Special Edition: 10 Classic Roles Ready For Gender-Bending
by Pat Cerasaro - Jul 29, 2015

Lines are blurring. Gender-bending is seemingly everywhere these days, from high fashion ads to news coverage to I AM CAIT, Queen Latifah as The Wiz and beyond. Furthermore, one of the most provocative and popular stories of last week was the news of a Canadian regional production of A CHORUS LINE casting a male actor in the leading role of Cassie, renamed Casey. With the additional angle of Broadway currently being abuzz with the appearance of stage and screen star Taye Diggs stepping into the iconic high heels of the titular character in the recently multi-Tony Award-winning musical HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH - itself centered on a transsexual character - it seems as though now would be the ideal time to consider some other musical theatre mainstays and how they could be re-purposed and refreshed with a gender-bended twist. Although certain roles seems tailor-made to such treatment, it is illuminating to consider the rich possibilities that could potentially be afforded in the experience of witnessing the right performer of perhaps the perceivably wrong sex tackling a role normally associated with the opposite gender. Who knows, maybe a female Phantom or a make Elphaba are not that wildly spurious or far-fetched to consider given the compelling performances that have been given by unlikely actors in roles traditionally portrayed in a certain way. Theatre is nothing without reinvention and these are my top 10 picks for musicals I would like to see taken on with fresh eyes and a new outlook. (more...)

by Patti Murin - Jul 28, 2015

Good morning, all you stalwart Bachelorette fans! We've made it to the end of yet another season, and I believe I've consumed roughly 350 gallons of rose along the way. Last night's finale gathering was slightly epic, so excuse my tardiness with this recap. I viewed the Final Rose Ceremony with a host of Broadway and TV favorites, including Andrew Rannells, Mike Doyle, Nikki James, Zuzanna Szadkowski and Colin Donnell, as well as some non-actor friends who are willing to put up with my obsession and still come over to hang out.

by Patti Murin - Jun 23, 2015

Full disclosure #1: It's possible that I have never been so exhausted and hungover in my entire life. Full disclosure #2: I have definitely never been so happy in my entire life. This past weekend, Colin D. accepted my final rose and we said 'I Do' in the most fantastic wedding celebration that has ever existed. Going back to real life has been a challenge, because all I want to do is relive the magic and talk about it to anyone and everyone that will listen. So it's lucky for me that 'The Bachelorette' is on tonight, to help ease the transition back into normal, every day life. Except this time, with the best husband in the world by my side :) (more...)
