Welcome back, YOUNGER-ians! (What do you think? Yay or nay on the fan name?) Glad you decided to join us for this week's recap of Liza's shenanigans.  Last week, we were introduced to Queen Bee Jade Winslow, who's supposedly writing the first book for Kelsey's new imprint. This week, we get a glimpse into how those developments have furthered, how Jade's coming along with her masterpiece tell-all, and how Kelsey's trying to hold it all together dealing with her author's horrible personality. But… that's all in due time. We don't actually open with that.  (more...)

STAGE TUBE: On This Day for 1/23/16- LITTLE WOMENSTAGE TUBE: On This Day for 1/23/16- LITTLE WOMEN
by Stage Tube - Jan 23, 2016

Today in 2005, Little Women opened at the Virginia Theatre (now the August Wilson Theatre), where it ran for 137 performances. Based on Louisa May Alcott's classic 1869 semi-autobiographical novel, it focuses on the four March sisters - brassy, tomboy-like, aspiring writer Jo, romantic Meg, pretentious Amy, and kind-hearted Beth - and their beloved Marmee, at home in Concord, Massachusetts while the family patriarch is away serving as a Union Army chaplain during the Civil War. Intercut with the vignettes in which their lives unfold are several recreations of the melodramatic short stories Jo writes in her attic studio. The Broadway cast included Sutton Foster, Maureen McGovern, Janet Carroll, Jenny Powers, Megan McGinnis, and Amy McAlexander. (more...)
