by Christopher Castanho - Mar 6, 2017

The Gay Men's Chorus of Washington, DC's LGBT themed production of the classic musical 'How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying' will premiere at the Lincoln Theatre in DC on March 10, 11 & 12, 2017 at located at 1215 U Street NW. This is the first LGBT production of 'How To Succeed' to date. Famous songs like 'I Believe in You,' 'Happy to Keep His Dinner Warm' and 'Brotherhood of Man.' all appear in their original composition, just with a little more glitter! How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying tells the story of J. Pierrepont Finch and his rise to the top of the corporate ladder with the aid of a simple self-help book. Along the way, he learns how to find your name on the executive door and win the secretary's heart quicker than you can say "nepotism." I had an absolutely wonderful conversation with the show's director and the organization's artistic director Thea Kano about her background and why this production is so important. (more...)

In this episode: School of Rock's Jay Gill and Wagner Professor Alan Smith share their insights of being on the fronts lines with a Broadway ensemble member. Being a dresser is so much more than the wardrobe. Its about personality navigation, people-skills, knowing that connections go a long way, and that life and ensembles are best when they are a mix of people. Whether dealing with giraffe heads or ball gowns, cowboy boots or spike heels, at The End of the Day, a simple thank you can be priceless. (more...)

Dr. Nishant Rao Examines Insulin-Based GOLO Diet as Not a Good Weight Loss Strategy
by BWW News Desk - Mar 16, 2017

The GOLO diet is a fairly simplistic approach to reduce dietary sugars and focus on fat loss through managing insulin resistance. The weight loss strategy is based on the belief that slow metabolisms and easy weight gain are both a product of too much insulin production. According to their website, higher insulin levels prompt the body to store excess fat rather than allowing it burn off. The body will produce more insulin if an individual does not engage in regular physical activity, or over eats. Age is also a contributing factor in higher insulin production, as insulin levels tend to rise over time. When excess insulin no longer efficiently converts glucose into energy, that glucose is eventually converted to fat and is stored primarily in the belly. Insulin resistance is usually a byproduct of excess insulin build up, thereby making weight loss even more difficult. (more...)

BWW Interview: PHANTOM's Ali Ewoldt Discusses the Challenges of Christine, Asians on Broadway and Her Solo Debut at Feinstein's/54 Below
by MATTHEW BLANK - Mar 10, 2017

Over the years, as we all orbit in the same Broadway Asian community, I got to know Ali Ewoldt and see her perform various roles, including Carrie in CAROUSEL, Tuptim in THE KING AND I, and Luisa in THE FANTASTICKS. Always happy to be supporting part of the Tribe and seeing someone who looked like me starring in these iconic shows, it became evident that Ewoldt possesses one of the most pristine soprano voices out there today. I knew that it would only be a matter of time before her next big Broadway break, and that brings us to today. She stars as Christine in the long-running mega-hit THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, and will be making her solo debut at Feinstein's/54 Below with FROM PHANTOM TO PHANTOM on March 12. Ahead of the show, Ewoldt was kind enough to take time to answer a few questions for us. (more...)

BWW Interviews: Touring Veteran Reaches Milestone Performance In 42ND STREET
by Kyle Christopher West - Feb 16, 2017

Most actors receive a standard show contract for around 12 months, but that doesn't mean every actor hangs up their shoes and immediately walks into another show. In fact, not only do some actors extend their contracts, but some make an entire career out of an individual credit. Rob Ouellette, who is currently playing pianist Oscar and a member of the tap-dancing ensemble of the 42nd STREET national tour is about to shuffle into his 1,000th performance with the show on February 16th, 2017, so we caught up with him about his experience. Not only has Rob danced his way through six different companies of the musical, but he's performed several variations of the show's choreography, has worked three times with original book writer and director Mark Bramble, as well as with choreography icons Randy Skinner, Kelli Barclay, and Rick Conant, among others.

BWW Recap: Good Grief and Good Laughs on this Week's GREY'S ANATOMY
by Lauren Gienow - Apr 7, 2017

GREY'S ANATOMY was in top form on Thursday night. The episode was called WHAT'S INSIDE and newcomer, Nzingha Stewart, was the director. This episode had a little bit of everything…a fascinating medical case, moments of laughter, moments of tears, callbacks to some significant past storylines on the show, new friendships forming, etc. It also provided a beautiful commentary on grief and on how there is no normal way to grieve (though there are certainly some ways that are healthier than others).

BWW Weighs In: The Real Truth About Lifting and Bulking for Women - By Elizabeth Stacey
by Mark Fisher Fitness - Apr 3, 2017

Muscle is beautiful. Muscle is powerful. And muscle is darn right magical when you think about it! A muscle contracts or releases in order to pull our bones closer together or farther apart, which creates movement. But muscle also makes us look hot as hell and enables us to do really cool things at the gym. And carry our bottles of wine home from Trader Joe's. (more...)

BWW Interview: Gerald Thomson of UNEXPECTED at Brelby Theatre Company
by Jeanmarie Simpson - Apr 3, 2017

I am most concerned with what the audience sees, as they are the viewers/hearers of our story, so what they gather from our performance must be paramount. I come in with a strong image of what I want the show to look like. I then block the show right away to get it on its feet. I call this building the skeleton. The rest of the rehearsal process is about fleshing out that skeleton. I do not have the actors wander the stage looking for what feels right for them. It may end up being more “true to life” by letting two people do what comes naturally, but that does not make for a good presentational performance. I block to keep things visually interesting and I work to use the entire stage. (more...)
