BWW Interviews: Young Frankenstein's CORY ENGLISH
by Michael L. Quintos - Sep 13, 2010

This past year has certainly been a fun one for Cory English, the scene-stealing actor who portrays the lovably-humpbacked sidekick Igor (pronounced EYE-GOHR, mind you) in the first national tour of Mel Brooks' YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. Recently, while en route with his family to Costa Mesa-where the show will come to life at The Orange County Performing Arts Center for a two-week engagement starting September 12-English agreed to stop for a brief chat with BroadwayWorld's Michael Lawrence Quintos about life on the road, his first time on Broadway, and how much he loves musical comedy.

MasteryConnect Releases Mastery Report Card to Help Teachers and Parents Shift from Letter Grades to Mastery-Based Grading
by BWW News Desk - Mar 19, 2014

'What does a 'B' mean?' That's the question Willard, Missouri, superintendent Kent Medlin took to his faculty last year as they were contemplating revising report cards across the district. Medlin found that grades lacked consistency from one class to another. 'The letter grade 'B' means one thing for one teacher and another thing for another teacher,' Medlin said. He came to the conclusion that 'the grade card, and how we communicate learning to parents, had to change.' (more...)

LOVE NEVER DIES Special Interview: Glenn Slater
by Pat Cerasaro - Feb 28, 2012

Today we are talking to one of the busiest lyricists in show business, Glenn Slater, all about today's movie theater showing of his collaboration with Andrew Lloyd Webber, LOVE NEVER DIES - a continuation of the world's most successful show, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA - and the spectacular Simon Phillips-directed Australian production of it filmed for the ages and presented in hundreds of movie theaters across the country, with an encore cinema showing on March 7 prior to its DVD/Blu-ray release in the Spring.
