BroadwayGirlNYC: #BwayConfessions
by BroadwayGirl NYC - Sep 10, 2011

This week I introduced the hashtag #BwayConfessions. Hundreds of fans (and stars!) posted their confessions. Some are moving, and others are hilarious; some contradict each other while others echo each other eerily. Many involve secret dreams... and a satisfying number take pride in dreams-come-true. Here are the confessions of Broadway fans everywhere! Some of the confessions are moving, and some are hilarious; some contradict each other while others echo each other eerily. Some are adorable and innocent; a few are on the darker side. Many involve secret dreams... and a satisfying number take pride in dreams-come-true. The below are a few of my favorites. I hope you're as amused, touched, and inspired by them as I have been. And don't forget to tweet your own #BwayConfessions or leave them in the comments below. (more...)

BWW Reviews: CAROLE J. BUFFORD Raises Her Cabaret Performance Bar To Star Level With 'Shades of Blue' at the Metropolitan Room
by Stephen Hanks - May 21, 2014

I never thought that writing a rave review would be more difficult than constructing a less than positive critique, but Carole J. Bufford, damn her, is causing me creative problems. That's because for the third time in three years I'm compelled to praise this attractive powerhouse cabaret singer to the skies (you can find my two previous essays on her unassailable talent here and here) and my author's arsenal contains only so many superlatives. With yet another outstanding performance last Thursday night at the Metropolitan Room, the young woman who was named BroadwayWorld.com's 2013 Cabaret Vocalist of the Year has snatched my mental thesaurus (not to mention my online one) and trampled all over it. She's given me the writer's block blues. (more...)
