BWW Interviews: THE BOOK OF MORMON Percussionist Giancarlo de Trizio
by Heidi Scheuermann - Oct 15, 2013

How many times have you gone to see a theatrical production, and you are blown away by the music? I speak for myself when I say the music is what makes these productions so great, so emotional, so memorable. Believe it or not, folks, those are real people with some really incredible talent in that orchestra pit who don't always get the recognition they deserve. Without the orchestra, we lose those big bang musical numbers, the sound effects, and mood of each and every scene. I recently had the privilege of speaking with one of these musicians who is currently playing percussion on tour with one of the most popular shows out there, THE BOOK OF MORMON. (more...)

Glee-Cap: Puppet Master.
by Robert Lawlor - Nov 28, 2013

You know when I was sitting around with my family having dinner, in between passing dishes and pies, I thought - you know what would make this a better Thanksgiving? Puppets and What Does the Fox Say! I mean, come on - you can't have Thanksgiving without puppets and weird YouTube sensations singing about the sounds a fox makes. So, tonight, we are grateful for Glee and ponder the question - what does the Gleek say? Mr. Schue is stuck working on things, so Blaine takes over glee club, and the glee clubbers are less than pleased with Blaine's ideas, causing Blaine to exit dramatically. Kurt presents Pamela Lansbury with their first gig at Callbacks, while the rest of the group is not feeling the idea of it, Kurt is not listening. Imagining the perfect scenario, Kurt imagines Pamela Lansbury [with himself at the helm] singing 'Into the Groove' to a sold out crowd. Kurt and Blaine talk it up about the glee club rebellion of Blaine, which Kurt attributes to the idea they may find him controlling, which Blaine doesn't understand. (more...)
