BWW Review: Underdone Gem WORKING Shows Off the Working Class at Showtunes
by Jay Irwin - May 9, 2016

It's something most of us have to do at least 5 days a week, go to work. So you'd think a musical about folks and their working lives would resonate more. But the musical "Working", despite being loved by musical theater Nerds, never really caught on. In fact it only ran for 24 performances on Broadway back in 1978. But thankfully the folks at Showtunes have done what they do and dusted this one off for a weekend so more people can discover how wonderful it is. (more...)

BWW Blog: Erin Kong - The Chance of a Lifetime: Singing with Kristin Chenoweth
by Guest Blogger: Erin Kong - May 27, 2016

Imagine: your childhood hero, the woman who coined one of your 8-year-old self's favorite songs, holding your hand in front of hundreds of people, the renowned Phoenix Symphony gushing in gorgeous melodies behind you. You are surrounded by your friends and classmates, and bowing in front of an ocean of applauding strangers. No, this is not a dream. This was very much reality. Last weekend I had the opportunity of performing backup vocals with fifteen of my classmates at Arizona State University, for Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth.  (more...)

BWW Blog: Diana Sanchez - How to Get Non Theatre People to Come to Your Shows
by Guest Blogger: Diana Sanchez - Jun 24, 2016

Once you have put your show together and you are ready to perform it in front of an audience, there is only one thing left to do: sell tickets. Now we all know the basics of selling tickets. You make pretty fliers to put up, you invite all of your friends to come, you make sure that all of your family will be attending. That's the easy part, you know that all of your fellow theatre Nerds will be there, and that common show go-ers, friends, and family will mostly likely attend as well. But, how do you sell tickets to the people who aren't usually seen within a couple hundred feet of the auditorium? This is more difficult. Non theatre people will usually not stop to look at a flier and be interested to go to a show. To get people like this to go you have to do a little more convincing. (more...)

BWW Blog: Diana Sanchez - How I Came to Be Involved in Theatre
by Guest Blogger: Diana Sanchez - Jun 20, 2016

My freshman year of high school was the first time I heard about my school's theatre department. I thought it sounded like the coolest thing ever, and I really wanted to get involved.The only problem was, I'd never done anything theatre related before, so I was afraid I wouldn't be good enough just to join the club. So instead of joining, I signed up for my school's intro to drama class and hoped that I would get in. The whole year passed by, and nothing. Skip forward to next year: my sophomore year. Again, as I looked on my schedule for the year, I noticed that I had not gotten into the intro to drama class. At this point, I was accepting that i wasn't going to be involved in the theatre department, and I was okay with that. Mainly because even though I wanted to be involved, acting terrified me. For some reason, imagining myself on stage acting was something that I dreamed of doing, even though it also frightened me at the same time. (more...)

BWW Blog: Allison Rambler - Movie Musicals: Stage Versus Screen?
by Guest Blogger: Allison Rambler - Jun 16, 2016

There's no getting around it: Broadway is expensive. For a broke soon-to-be college student like myself, the prospect of scrounging up enough dollar bills to purchase a ticket to Something Rotten is a daunting one. So what are those of us without the means to experience professional theatre to do? In some cases, all we have to do is switch on the television or take a trip to the movie theater to see a musical come to life. (more...)

EDINBURGH 2016 - BWW Review: THE MMORPG SHOW, Gilded Balloon At The Counting House, 7 August
by Amy Hanson - Aug 8, 2016

If you've ever thought that what the fringe needs is a room full of people cheering numbers on a rolling dice, then your search is over. Paul Flannery, known to nerdy Fringe-goers as Treguard from Knightmare Live, is our guide through an hour of role-playing and comedy in The MMORPG Show.  MMORPG, or Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Game, is something of a misnomer in the title, as this is usually applied to the likes of World of Warcraft or Everquest.  Instead, this production is far more in the vein of Dungeons and Dragons and other dice-based tabletop role-playing games.
