Pam Watson Releases THE BEAUTIFUL HOME OF CHASE S. SQUIRREL
by BWW News Desk - Sep 9, 2016

'The Beautiful Home of Chase S. Squirrel': a beautifully illustrated tale of friends walking with God. 'The Beautiful Home of Chase S. Squirrel' is the creation of published author, Pam Watson, born and raised in North Carolina in a wonderful home by a loving mother and father that everyone adored. Her parents tried to instill Godly values and the golden rule into Pam and her brother and sister. Pam has had many wonderful family, friends, and pastors to help guide her on her journey to having a closer walk with the Lord. Several years ago, some friends flew her to Florida for vacation. They lived on the Gulf of Mexico where every day, Pam could walk on the beach, watch the dolphins play, see the birds, and enjoy God's beauty. Then Pam was hooked. The idea formed over time for her to move to Florida herself. After much prayer, she took the leap of faith and moved to Largo, Florida, to be close to her friends. Pam is excited to have written her first book. (more...)

InDepth InterView: Joshua Bergasse On BOMBSHELL/SMASH Reunion Concert, Plus ON THE TOWN, GIGI & More
by Pat Cerasaro - Mar 23, 2015

One of the most popular stories of the year so far, the unexpected announcement of a special one night only charity concert performance of a fan favorite musical-within-the-series from NBC's musical series SMASH, BOMBSHELL, to benefit the Actors Fund, is already a huge hit here on BroadwayWorld, and, now we bring you an exclusive chat with an elemental figure in the creation of the project, choreographer and director Joshua Bergasse, all about the hotly anticipated evening. As part of our conversation, Bergasse offers up a slew of new details on what plans are currently in place for the unprecedented SMASH reunion as well as share first reactions to the wildly successful Kickstarter campaign that has already racked up more than $315,000 in donations in less than two weeks, having begun with a goal of $50,000 when the event was first announced. Additionally, Bergasse parses the finer points of the BOMBSHELL score and outlines what fans can expect from the songstack on the evening as well as preliminary staging and presentational plans and also what the momentum engendered by BOMBSHELL could lead to in the future, near and far - a HIT LIST concert or perhaps a night featuring the other musicals-within-the-series. Plus, Bergasse also comments on his contributions to two new mainstage musicals this season byway of ON THE TOWN and GIGI as well as looks ahead to the La Jolla Playhouse premiere of the new musical by the FROZEN team of Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, UP HERE, while also glancing back at his Broadway debut in THE LIFE.
