BWW Student Blog: Sydney Gross- Auditions
by Guest Blogger: Sydney Gross - Dec 9, 2016

"Hey there Delilah, what's it like in New York City..." Lori's alarm clock blared as she groggily went to hit the snooze button. She knew she could not let that button be hit one more time, it was her opening night on Broadway. Everyday was the same for her. Get up, go to school, go to rehearsal, get some sort of fast food, go home, do homework, and finally go to sleep. It was an endless cycle that probably is not very healthy. Anybody would think that having an opening night on Broadway would be fun and exciting, but for Lori, there was so many things going on in her head. Lori was an average teenager, stressing over grades, popularity, and boys. That was until she heard on the radio that Hamilton, the smash hit musical that had been breaking ticket number records since it opened, was having an open casting audition in New York City for the new Elizabeth Schuyler. Lori had been acting her entire life in community theatres and schools and such. Her dream was to eventually make it to Broadway but she never thought that this opportunity would come so early in life. She sat up in bed and looked at her watch. (more...)

BWW Review: A Beautiful Love Story that Doesn't Always Flow in Seattle Rep's VIETGONE
by Jay Irwin - Dec 8, 2016

The “playwright” of “Vietgone”, currently playing at the Seattle Rep, tells us from the beginning that this is not a war story but a love story. Well he also tells us that this is in no way based on his parents and we know that's a lie. But while it's not necessarily a story about war but a love story with a war as it's backdrop, the show does manage some very interesting perspectives on war that the average American might not have.

BWW Review: HAIRSPRAY LIVE! Serves as a Joyful, Optimistic Reminder of a Powerful Message
by Matt Tamanini - Dec 8, 2016

There is one undeniable quality that HAIRSPRAY has retained as it has journeyed from the big screen to the stage, back to the big screen, and now to the small. The infectious excitement and optimism that Tracy Turnblad sings with in the opening number, 'Good Morning Baltimore,' is one of the most magical and important gifts that the musical theatre has given in recent decades. From the moment that the original musical burst onto Broadway in 2002, it has been a literal and figurative rainbow of joy and happiness, and fortunately for the show's legions of fans, directed by Tony-winner Kenny Leon, NBC's live adaptation has maintained every delightful ounce of the musical's giddy goodness.

About a month ago, my voice made its local television debut as I stood on the Philadelphia Art Museum steps, in an aquamarine sweater and polka dot skirt, and sang twenty seconds of 'You're The One That I Want.' I would consider a Thanksgiving spent singing one of my favorite musicals a pretty dip-da-dip-da-dip doo-wop-be-dooby-doo one. (more...)

BWW Interview: Siena Avila of A CHRISTMAS CAROL at Thousand Oaks Repertory Company
by Cary Ginell - Dec 14, 2016

Siena Avila is like many other 16-year-old high schoolers you know. Cheerful, friendly, enthusiastic, and just a little bit shy. But Siena has one thing that most kids her age don't have, an amazing singing ability and a natural instinct for performing everything from light opera to musical theater. We first saw her perform in the Ventura County Gilbert and Sullivan Repertoire Company's recent production of The Sorcerer this past summer. Shepherded to VCGSRC producers Rebecca and John Pillsbury, Avila has made an immediate impact on the Ventura County theater scene, most recently being double-cast with Mary Zastrow in the Thousand Oaks Repertory Company production of A Christmas Carol. We sat down with Siena last week to get to know her and find out where she's been and where she's going. (more...)
