Award winning internationally syndicated cartoonist and author of the iconic Nancy comic strip, Guy Gilchrist will be appearing at the Tennessee State Fair at 500 Wedgewood Avenue, Nashville, TN on September 8th, 2014. Gilchrist will be appearing at the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) booth signing free copies of Nancy Loves Nashville provided by TDOT.

He will be doing his presentations at 10 am CT and 2 am CT at the TDOT booth. Gilchrist's presentation will draw from his own personal experiences and provide antidotes from his work on Nancy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Jim Henson's Muppets, and much more. 'I am very honored and humbled to be taking part at the Tennessee State Fair,' said Guy Gilchrist, the cartoonist of Nancy. 'I look forward to having a Wonderful Time showing everyone how to have fun drawing cartoons, and at the same time provide the keys to unlocking the audiences' most cherished gifts and dreams. 'The message that Nancy Loves Nashville conveys promotes the importance of taking care of the environment is essential and critical that this starts at an early age,' continued Gilchrist. 'As a resident of Tennessee, this has a special meaning for me and I am glad to be taking part in this promotion with our partners with the Tennessee Department of Transportation.' Guy Gilchrist at the age of 24, he was hand-selected to create Jim Henson's Muppets Comic Strip which was printed worldwide in 660-plus newspapers daily from 1981 to 1986. Throughout the years, he has set his hand to such notable cartoons as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, Fraggle Rock and The Pink Panther and was instrumental in the creation of The Muppet Babies. He and his wife reside in Nashville, Tennessee. Nancy Loves Nashville celebrates all that makes Nashville a special place to live from the music to the events while educating children on the importance of not littering and taking care of the environment. In addition to the 24 page coloring book, Nancy appears in billboards throughout Davidson County. Gilchrist teamed up with the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) and Metro Nashville Public Works in creating this fun and educational coloring book for students in Davidson County Schools. Syndicated internationally in 80 countries and some 400 newspapers, Nancy has a viewership of 57 million readers around the world. And as fans of the the comic strip know, Nancy resides in the fictional town of Three Rocks with her Aunt Fritzi and friend, Sluggo. Gilchrist took over the Nancy comic strip in 1995. In 2013 he unveiled a one-of-a-kind exhibit, Nancy Loves Nashville, at the Nashville International Airport that revealed the location of Three Rocks as a suburb just outside of Nashville. (more...)

BWW Blog: The Night Elton John Told Elaine Stritch, 'This is Your Song' - and She Kept It
by BWW News Desk - Aug 4, 2014

As Adam Feldman pointed out in his Wonderful Time Out New York piece on Elaine Stritch, 'Everyone who ever met Elaine Stritch-hell, anyone who ever saw her perform-has a Stritch story.' I would like to add another category: everyone who ever saw her when someone else performed. I'll explain. In July 2004, Elton John was performing a symphonic concert at New York's Radio City Music Hall and I took my brother Rob. We had great seats, like tenth row center. Halfway through the beautiful set, Elton paused before 'Your Song' and dedicated it to 'One of the greatest theatrical personalities ever to grace the Broadway stage..' Suddenly, we look up about ten feet to our right, and Elaine Stritch is on her feet basking in the glow of a spotlight and Elton's uncharacteristically sincere (and long) introduction. 'Oh Rob, look at her. She's so cute, with those huge black glasses and that big hat. How sweet for her to have this little moment,' I said to my brother. Indeed, in those initial seconds of acknowledgment, Elaine seemed to light up from within and grow a full six inches, like a plant under a grow light on steroids. (more...)
