Together, David Lindsay-Abaire and Jeanine Tesori have written an endearing and light score suitable for the entire family. (more...)

BWW Blog: Sherz Aletaha of Off-Broadway's DISASTER! - Kiss The Blog Goodbye
by Guest Blogger: Sherz Aletaha - Mar 04, 2014

Well Broadway World, it's my final blog which means it's time to say goodbye. But nobody likes goodbyes, so let's avoid it with funny stories about 'Disaster!' This week we had an amazing LGBT event at the show. The audience was so energetic, and we kept raving about them backstage because they laughed at everything (clearly, we are all attention whores). We had special celebrity guests, Norbert Leo Butz, Laura Osnes, Robin De Jeus, and John Tartaglia at the show. Can we talk about how sweet they all are?!?! I always have 'pinch me' moments when the theater folks I obsessed over in high school and college come to the show. After we geeked out over the celebs listed above, the cast, crew, and audience were all invited to Southern Hospitality for a beverage as part of the event. Like I mentioned in my last blog, the cast is in love so if you give us an opportunity to hang out together, we're there. Not only did we enjoy our complimentary beverages, but we also stuffed ALL of the mac and cheese in our faces. Whoever said 'nothing tastes as good as skinny feels' is a dirty liar. (more...)
