STAGE TUBE: Behind the Scenes with END OF THE RAINBOW at the Arvada Center
by Stage Tube - Mar 31, 2014

The Arvada Center is making a bold move with its current main-stage production. The regional premiere of END OF THE RAINBOW follows Judy Garland during a six week run in London six months before her tragic death. While it includes many of Judy's actual arrangements of some of her most loved songs, it isn't a musical. It is a play with music. This week, 'In Focus' host Eden Lane takes viewers behind the scenes for some of the early rehearsals to meet the creative team and the cast. Click below! (more...)

BWW Reviews: Big Voices, Big Laughs Define THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK MUSICAL at The Circuit Playhouse
by Caroline Sposto - Mar 05, 2014

To my admiration, Director/Choreographer, Courtney Oliver, Music Director, Renee Kemper and seven highly-talented performers, have managed to spin this rather flimsy material into solid, non-stop, over-the-top fun.
