BWW Recap: 'The Decembrist'- An Explosive Mid-Season Close To THE BLACKLISTBWW Recap: 'The Decembrist'- An Explosive Mid-Season Close To THE BLACKLIST
by Marakay Rogers - Nov 11, 2014

'The Decembrist' was the fall finale for THE BLACKLIST, which will be back on Super Bowl Sunday, and amazingly, we got a couple of answers. Sure, we got a lot more questions, but we got a couple of answers. We also got two dead major recurring characters, an explosion, and the discovery that The Box is explosion-proof for sure. What answers did we get? Well, The Decembrist, who set up Berlin and Red, and is number 12 on the list, turns out to be Alan Fitch. Fitch's job title turns out to be Assistant Director of National Intelligence, whatever job that is. Fitch turns out dead. And Not-Tom? Oh. That. First off, he's gotten away. Second? Don't tell Liz, butů well, why spoil the surprise? (more...)

by Pat Cerasaro - Oct 29, 2014

Today we are talking to a world famous triple-threat star of stage and screen who first shot to fame in the 1980s as the first African American Miss America and found considerable success as a recording artist and actress thereafter, the divine Vanessa Williams. Sharing sage wisdom from her life and career as well as reflecting on many of her most popular properties to date, Williams reveals some of her many secrets to success while also looking ahead to next month's hotly anticipated all-star concert presentation of legendary Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein musical SHOW BOAT, co-starring Julian Ovenden, Norm Lewis, Jane Alexander and many more along with the New York Philharmonic under the direction of Ted Sperling. Also, Williams shares her enthusiasm for setting out to create new renditions of some of SHOW BOAT's most noted selections, including 'Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man Of Mine'. Additionally, Williams opens up about her multiple musical theatre endeavors highlighting the work of Stephen Sondheim, including the Tony Award-winning 2002 Best Revival production of INTO THE WOODS and the recent original revue SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM. Plus, Williams details her ongoing participation in THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL, after having starred in the well-received Broadway production last season and now finishing up headlining the Los Angeles production before bringing the drama to Boston. All of that, KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN memories, saving Audra McDonald's wedding day and much, much more with one of Broadway's brightest stars! (more...)
