by Guest Blogger: Jessica Vanek - Feb 20, 2017

Jess here.  Every once and awhile you hear about a show that you would do just about anything to see.  Although the stages of Las Vegas offer a variety of amazing entertainment options on a nightly basis, it's a rare occasion to have the opportunity to see a multi-talented performer whose career spans across several different medias; from TV to film to Broadway.  When I saw that The Smith Center for the Performing Arts was hosting a show featuring Santino Fontana I was ecstatic!  Initially scheduled for a two night run, Fontana's Friday night show was cancelled due to a foot of snow closing down all of the NYC area airports.  Thankfully, "the show must go on" adage rang true, and Fontana was welcomed to the sunny desert on Saturday night by an eagerly awaiting, over-packed house.

BWW Interviews: Touring Veteran Reaches Milestone Performance In 42ND STREET
by Kyle Christopher West - Feb 16, 2017

Most actors receive a standard show contract for around 12 months, but that doesn't mean every actor hangs up their shoes and immediately walks into another show. In fact, not only do some actors extend their contracts, but some make an entire career out of an individual credit. Rob Ouellette, who is currently playing pianist Oscar and a member of the tap-dancing ensemble of the 42nd STREET national tour is about to shuffle into his 1,000th performance with the show on February 16th, 2017, so we caught up with him about his experience.
