BWW Blog: Jessica Vanek - What Makes a Good Show?
by Guest Blogger: Jessica Vanek - Jan 18, 2017

Jess here.  2017 is upon us, and keeping with tradition, I have made a resolution.  No, it's not your typical "eat healthier" or "get a gym membership" kind of resolution, its one involving creativity.  You see, I attend a performing arts high school in Las Vegas and I can safely say that the art of musical theatre is my passion.  I've decided to write a one act musical this year, a feat which I know is incredibly daunting, but I am always up for a challenge.  I already have my plotline figured out, and I'm really happy with what I have, but now I just need to write it.  The problem is, I don't know where to start.  When looking at iconic musicals, I find it impossible to make a distinct connection between them all. This begs the question, what makes a good show?  This can be interpreted many ways; from a technical standpoint, to the content, to the actors portraying the characters.  The whole idea of "a good show" baffles me, because no one shares the same opinion when defining what is good vs. what is bad.   (more...)
