BWW Blog: Miranda Jackel - Attending BroadwayCon
by Guest Blogger: Miranda Jackel - Jan 31, 2017

I'll never forget the day I found out the first-ever BroadwayCon was happening. I saw the headline in big, bold letters, and could barely believe my eyes. I WENT INSANE (tbh, that's an understatement). I began jumping up and down, screaming at the top of my lungs!!! For years and years, I'd been constantly rambling on about how desperately I wanted a Broadway convention to happen. Finally, it was going to be a reality, and I was overwhelmed by joy and surprise! The first year of BroadwayCon was absolutely unforgettable-and not Just Because we got stuck at the Hilton in the midst of that crazy blizzard!! (more...)

BWW Feature: Revitalized Alhambra Celebrates 50 Years
by Michael Lipp - Jan 3, 2017

In the summer of 2009, local businessman Craig Smith took a huge gamble on Jacksonville's failing Alhambra Dinner Theatre, which had decided to close its doors after 42 years of production. The longest-running professional dinner theatre in the country had, for a number of reasons (not the least of which being the poor economy in the late 2000's) seen its subscription base drop from a peak of about 4,500 to 500 and struggle to fill even half the house at discounted prices.

BWW Blog: Amanda Grillo - Finding the Fit: Typecasting
by Guest Blogger: Amanda Grillo - Jan 3, 2017

A big part of show business is typecasting. There are "types" that people fall into. These can be based around age, race, gender, and personality. Some people this as an opportunity to play to their strengths. I once participated in a workshop where the instructor told us to "know our types". He then began to call people out one by one: "You're a Fierstein. Try looking at Edna Turnblad or Tevye." "You're a Broderick. Look at his roles." "Streisand. You have a lot of options for material." He compared us to already well known household names in the theatre world. What about embracing who you naturally are? Why be the next [insert celebrity here], when you can make a name for yourself and be original? There are stock characters that people naturally gravitate towards with ease whether it be by look or by personality, but if people get locked into these types it begins to be all they are seen as. To some people, these types can be seen as limiting. There's not much variety in roles if they play the same kind of part over and over. Actors should try to expand their range of roles when possible. The popular belief of what is attractive doesn't necessarily need to be the leading players driving the action, but Just Because someone who isn't conventionally attractive drives the story doesn't mean it is an ugly duckling tale. Dramaturgy also comes into play if a character description is explicitly influencing the script. That being said, I've seen several productions where the characters look phenomenal. They are a perfect depiction of how the story describes, but the talent was subpar. It was very clear that a different person was a much better fit, though they might not have been the perfect image. This idea got me thinking: Just Because you look the part, does that mean you deserve it?  (more...)

BWW Blog: Bob Marks - Finding Music That Suits You
by Guest Blogger: Bob Marks - Jan 3, 2017

Just as you would build a wardrobe, with varied outfits for different occasions and temperatures, your music repertoire book needs to feature a diverse selection of pieces to show you can handle different sorts of singing demands. Not every song can (or should be) a show-stopper, full of dramatic heft and long, sustained high notes at the top of your range. Sometimes, it's more important to demonstrate naturalness and vulnerability, or show that you understand the needs of a very specific musical style. It's valuable to have many different kinds of songs in your "toolbox" to exhibit the full scope of your strengths.  (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Jan 19, 2017

BWW Blog: Amanda Grillo - Body Positivity in Theatre
by Guest Blogger: Amanda Grillo - Jan 13, 2017

It's everywhere. Body Positive ads and videos work its way into the media on practically a daily basis. Stores are expanding the sizes they carry, girls are encouraged to embrace their curves, but all the same a photoshopped fantasy takes over our minds thinking what the ideal image is. I decided to take a look at how this affects the theatre world that I am so blessed to be a part of. I surveyed one hundred random, anonymous participants. The survey was distributed to several different theatre pages on social media where participants have a wide range of experiences and opinions. I also had the pleasure to interview Michael Kennedy (a student at the University of New Haven), Stephen Sheperd (a recent alumnus of the University of New Haven), and Diana Dart Harris (a professor at the University of New Haven whom has degrees in both dance education and exercise science).

Josh Gad Calls Out Kellyanne Conway with BOOK OF MORMON Tune
by BWW News Desk - Feb 4, 2017

Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway's latest scandal hit the news recently when she attempted to use her trademark 'alternative facts' to defend Trump's Muslim ban. In a Hardball interview, Conway cited the Bowling Green Massacre as a terrorist attack, one the media ignored completely. Perhaps because it never happened. Conway's fabrication sparked a highly vocal response from the internet. According to Entertainment Weekly, a fake website was set up for the victims of the massacre; the website links to the ACLU. Among those to respond was Broadway favorite and original Elder Cunningham Josh Gad. Gad took to Twitter and posted a clever video calling out Conway on her lying behavior.   (more...)

BWW Blog: Amanda Grillo - Understanding Empathy: A Theatre for Community Impact Reflection
by Guest Blogger: Amanda Grillo - Dec 19, 2016

In taking the class this semester, I learned so much about how theatre makes an impact on our community (yes, that is the class title and it is self explanatory). I learned about other theatre companies make their impact such as La Poca Nostra, the Yes Men, and the San Francisco Mime Troupe. I got the chance to research issues affecting our communities and collaborate with my classmates to make art addressing those issues. This show was certainly one for the books. With a minimal amount of rehearsal time, we put this show together within a matter of weeks. Everyone took on a wide array of responsibilities and I couldn't be prouder of my classmates. Here is what some of them had to say about their experiences: (more...)

Dancing Through Distress: Male dancers from SYTYCD, NYCB and Broadway Reflect on Challenges and Struggles They Faced Growing Up in a Studio
by Gianluca Russo - Dec 12, 2016

A sense of fulfillment fills his body as he sees his reflection in the hazy mirror. The music begins, and he suddenly feels completely comfortable in a place he only arrived at a few weeks prior. Each beat of the song sends pulses through the somewhat scratched up flooring, up through his bare feet, taking over his entire body. His demeanor is peaceful, passionate and powerful as he commands his way across the floor with the other dancers, each movement a new discovery in his mind. As the combination comes to an end, finishing with a grand jeté into a graceful arabesque par terre, 18 year old Nick Nazzaro remains in disbelief that he is spending his days dancing in the city of his dreams.
