by Christopher Castanho - May 8, 2017

You don't always need a fairy godmother for your dreams to come true. Nineteen-year-old Emily Bautista was lucky enough to have extremely supportive parents and a boatload of talent instead. The thankful and humble young woman is now performing eight times a week in the Broadway revival of “Miss Saigon” as an ensemble member and understudies the lead: Kim.

Thankfully, the legendary divas will reunite onstage in the city for a new show at Feinstein's/54 Below, as part of Garth Schilling's (also known as Miss Vodka Stinger) drag-themed Thursday night series called LATE NIGHT DRAG. The run will also include Cacophony Daniels, Marti Gould Cummings, Varla Jean Merman, Ray DeForest, RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE star Alexis Michelle, and Miss Vodka Stinger herself with the Martha Rayes. Prior to Vine and Arias' show, the pair pressed pause on their first day of rehearsal to speak with us over the phone about their individual careers, more than two decades of collaboration, and reuniting onstage in the city that brought them together.

Guest Blog: Five Things Actors Can Do While Waiting For A Cast List
by Guest Blogger: Brynn Bonne - Jun 19, 2017

We've all been there. We've all had that feeling of anticipation between an audition and the call from the casting team to inform us if we've made the cut. You go over your audition, you sit there in agony, you talk to your friends who also auditioned seeing if they know anything, though they are most of the time in the same boat as you, you even contemplating calling the directorial team yourself. All of these are HUGE red flags. There's nothing you can do about it once you step out of the audition room. You've done your part, let them do theirs. Trust that they will make the best choice. On the odd time that it takes a little longer than you can hope, here are some things to do in the meantime to keep your mind off of the anticipation. (more...)
