BWW Interview: The Ensemblist Podcast Returns for a Second Season
by Ashlee Latimer - Sep 4, 2016

Known as 'the only podcast that shows you Broadway from the inside out,' The Ensemblist podcast has become the champion of the unsung performance heroes and inner workings of the theatre world. Co-created and co-hosted by Nikka Graff Lanzarote (Chicago, Women on the Verge) and Mo Brady (SMASH, The Addams Family), the podcast has covered everything from the Gypsy Robe ceremony, to the audition process, to what it's like to be a Broadway babysitter during its first three years on the air. Now, following a successful first season covering the 'Ensemblist Essentials,' this past spring, The Ensemblist is entering into its second season (check out the first episode below!) and I sat down to talk with Nikka and Mo about how the podcast has grown, what it looks like to balance careers in the arts with being podcast masters, which Broadway ensemble they'd like to join, and more-check out the full interview below!

BWW Interview: Ben Vereen of STEPPIN' OUT at The Grand 1894 Opera House
by Bryan-Keyth Wilson - Sep 23, 2016

There's not much one can say when you look at the resume of Ben Vereen. I have to admit I thought the email to interview Mr. Vereen was a hoax or a vile trick someone was playing on me. Now the reason I say this is because he is one of my idols and reasons I studied musical theatre in college and left to go to NYC to work professionally. We are familiar with his work with Bob Fosse as the Leading Player in PIPPIN and as Judas in JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR but Mr. Vereen still continues to give us the ole razzle dazzle on the stage and on the screen. He's starred in 9 Broadway shows, has received the coveted Antionette Perry Award (The Tony), a Drama Desk Award, and a Prism Award. Nominated for an NAACP Image Award, starred in 30 plus movies and television shows, and has a huge crossover career. Ben Vereen hit the scene in Martha Graham's PRODIGAL SON in 1965 and he's been working ever since. I had the esteemed pleasure to sit and talk about his illustrious career and the current projects he's working on currently. (more...)

Fourth Annual 'Lake Loop' Returns to Hopatcong State Park in NJ, 10/9
by BWW News Desk - Sep 14, 2016

**Photos Available** The Lake Hopatcong Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization dedicated to improving Lake Hopatcong for all, now and in the years to come, will be hosting the fourth annual Lake Loop on October 9, 2016, at Hopatcong State Park. The event includes three scenic routes to bike around Lake Hopatcong (riders can choose a 20-mile, 40-mile, or 62-mile challenge), as well as a 1-mile or 5K adventure walk or trail run on the State Park grounds and a 2.5 mile paddling route for kayakers, canoeists and paddle boarders on Lake Hopatcong, off the State Park beach. New this year: a dog walk option has been added for participants to bring their furry friends to enjoy the adventure trail run/walk path. Dogs must be on a leash no longer than six foot and individuals will need to clean up after their pooch. Pet food and supplies will also be collected and donated to a local animal shelter. This is not a timed event and participants can do any combination of the activities they choose. Starting times have been staggered to allow individuals to partake of multiple events. Those that register before September 19 will be entered into a drawing to win prizes. Registration is available for individuals or teams at crowdrise.com/lakeloop2016. Participants are required to raise a minimum of $45 to partake in the event, this is a fundraiser to help support the efforts of the Lake Hopatcong Foundation, and all are encouraged to have their friends and family pledge toward their effort. 'This event showcases the many beauties of Lake Hopatcong. It is not a timed event so it is a go at your own pace ride, run, walk or paddle,' said Lake Loop Chairwoman, Becky Rubenstein. 'Participants can choose their challenge. We can all use a little motivation to get fit, what a great reason to do so while raising money for the lake.' Prizes and perks - including a VIP tent - will be awarded to the top fundraising individuals that raise $500 or more. VIP participants that raise $1,000 or more will receive a pair of exclusive Lake Hopatcong beach towels that describe the many activities that can be enjoyed on Lake Hopatcong. A plethora of sponsorships opportunities are available and begin at just $100. Contact Jennifer DeWitt at jennifer@lakehopatcongfoundation.org for more information. 'We are looking forward to a fun-filled day of folks Getting Out and enjoying the outdoors and all that Lake Hopatcong has to offer. We will be posting photos throughout the day and encourage others to do the same with #LHFLL2016,' said Development Director, Jennifer DeWitt. 'Be sure to check our official Facebook page www.facebook.com/lakeloop for updates and visit our special Pinterest page for pre-event workouts and other useful information www.pinterest.com/lakehopatcong.' The annual event started with biking around the lake from a church parking lot in 2013, grew to include the bike challenge and a family-friendly walk out of Nixon Elementary School's parking lot in 2014, and in 2015 the paddling component, led by a local paddling club called the Lake Hopatcong Paddlers, and an adventure trail run/walk organized by the Salt Shakers Running club was added and the event moved to the larger venue of Hopatcong State Park. The Lake Hopatcong Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a mission of 'improving Lake Hopatcong for all, now and in the years to come.' (more...)

BWW Blog: Annalise Prentiss - SEUSSICAL THE MUSICAL at Susquehanna Stage Co.
by Guest Blogger: Annalise Prentiss - May 10, 2016

"Oh, the thinks you can think when you think about...SEUSS!!" Dr. Seuss, as most of us know, was one of the most iconic children's book authors. From One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish,  Blue Fish to There's a Wocket in my Pocket, Dr. Seuss never did fail to amuse children. In 2000, Seussical the Musical debuted on Broadway. Written by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, the musical incorporates all the memory-making Dr. Seuss stories such as Horton Hears a Who, Gertrude McFuzz, The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, and Oh, The Thinks You Can Think! Seussical the Musical was written to carry on the legacy of Dr. Seuss and to grant good times to anyone who sees it, and Susquehanna Stage Company located in Marietta, Pennsylvania, hopes to do just that.

BWW Interview: Irish Actress LISA DWAN to Perform BECKETT TRILOGY at the Broad Stage, Santa Monica and Later in NYC!
by Don Grigware - Mar 31, 2016

Irish actress Lisa Dwan, the premier interpreter of Samuel Beckett, is about to step down from the position this spring, but before she does, she will make  an appearance with the Beckett Trilogy at the The Broad Stage in Santa Monica in April. Why is this the first time that all 3 plays have been performed together? Well I guess one reason is that Not I is rarely performed and Footfalls has never been performed by one actress playing both roles of Mother (off stage) and May (on stage), and to my knowledge no other actress has tried to perform all three roles in one evening. Up until I tried it, I didn't even think it was possible.  (more...)

BWW Review: THE SUITCASE Centers on a Dream Held by Many Holocaust Survivors
by Shari Barrett - Aug 11, 2016

Written by one of Poland's foremost contemporary playwrights, THE SUITCASE at first seems to be nothing more than a fluff piece with things such as balloons being popped and silly songs being sung. But it will surprise you when the story takes hold with the rather comical singing Narrator (Jeff Alan-Lee) and Jackleen (Claire Kaplan) sharing the tale of Franswa Jackoh (Vincent Catellanos) who, while in the process of figuring out his life, wanders into a cafe and meets The Poet (Sigute Miller) who in turn guides him to a Holocaust Museum to seek the truth. There he meets a rather miserable Tour Guide (Alexandra Freeman) who begrudgingly points out a suitcase retrieved from one of the German "work camps." Her tune changes when Jackoh realizes the name on the case is that of his own father from whom he was separated during the Holocaust. (more...)
