Spotlight On NYMF: Max Von Essen & THE HISTORY OF WARSpotlight On NYMF: Max Von Essen & THE HISTORY OF WAR
by Pat Cerasaro - Oct 7, 2010

After his early triumph in some truly troubled musicals - among them the most notorious of twenty-first century cult Broadway musicals, the infamous DANCE OF THE VAMPIRES - this dashing and terrifically talented Broadway leading man went on to star in the most successful production to date of Stephen Schwartz's delicate Gallic musical THE BAKER'S WIFE - causing even the WICKED composer himself to be taken aback by the sheer power of this tenor's voice - and is now singing the most talked about song of the New York Musical Theater Festival - from the new musical THE HISTORY OF WAR - the captivatingly charming and charismatic Max Von Essen. In this thorough discussion we go into his experiences working with Jim Steinman, Roman Polanski, Michael Crawford, John Rando, Mandy Gonzalez and the rest of the cast and creative team of DANCE OF THE VAMPIRES and how that flash of brilliance of a Broadway debut prepared him for the plight of the working actor making his way on Broadway today. We also discuss the details of his new NYMF musical and singing his star-making solo and adding another notable entry to his pristine performance record. Additionally, we talk about playing Enjorlas in the LES MISERABLES revival co-starring Lea Michele and Daphne Rubin Vega as well as his upcoming appearances and events - such as BROADWAY UNPLUGGED - plus how he keeps his voice in shape to traverse the treacherous vocal territory required of the tenor rock ballads he excels at enacting in song - and thoroughly slaughtering.(He'd be the last to admit he has cords of steel, but he does.) He may be known for 'For Sarah', but this interview is all Max. (more...)

BWW Interviews: Daniele Carta MantigliaBWW Interviews: Daniele Carta Mantiglia
by Nino Prattico - Oct 23, 2013

In attesa del suo debutto con A NIGHT ON BROADWAY, ho intervistato per voi il protagonista: Daniele Carta Mantiglia... buona lettura! Daniele Carta Mantiglia, classe 1992, una promessa del teatro musicale italiano. Daniele, tra meno di una settimana debutti con il tuo A Night on Broadway. Lo spettacolo nasce da una tua idea. Di cosa si tratta? Lo spettacolo nasce dall'idea - mia e di Flavio Gismondi - di portare in scena quei brani che dall'infanzia fino ad oggi hanno influenzato, riempito e incorniciato tutta la mia vita, in forma di concerto. Partendo proprio dalla mia infanzia e quindi dal mio incontro diretto con questo mondo, grazie al mio primo lavoro 'Giulietta e Romeo', si e creato quindi un vero e proprio percorso senza distinzioni di genere, ruolo o epoca che fondamentalmente comprende tutti quei brani che volendo o no fanno parte del bagaglio di ogni artista. È nato con la volonta di condividere con amici, colleghi e chiunque altro fosse interessato, emozioni e ricordi per scoprire insieme questo magico mondo, in tutte le sue meraviglie, ma anche in tutte le sue problematiche. È dunque uno spettacolo cucito 'a misura' su di te, che parla delle tue esperienze, dei tuoi successi, dei sogni, delle prime delusioni… È senz'altro piu difficile interpretare se stessi piuttosto che calarsi in un ruolo completamente diverso. Condividi? (more...)
