BWW Blog: Amanda Grillo - Getting to Know You: Theatre Ice Breakers
by Guest Blogger: Amanda Grillo - May 9, 2016

Sometimes you crave a more interesting introduction at a table read or meet up than 'Name, Role, Fun Fact about yourself'. If you're like me, you don't know what fact about yourself would be considered fun.  You can learn a lot about someone as a person and as a performer if you just ask the right ice breakers.

These clean-cut, youth, armed with literature and disarming smiles had driven all the way from Little Rock. They weren't protesting the show, just using the opportunity to tell their side the world Trey Parker and Matt Stone (Creators of South Park) and Robert Lopez, composer of 'Avenue Q' so famously lampooned.
