WAKE UP with BroadwayWorld - Tuesday, May 6, 2014 - Scott Alan, Marilyn Maye, LOS MONOLOGOS DE LA VAGINA and More!


Good morning, BroadwayWorld! Because we know all our readers eat, sleep and breathe Broadway, what could be better than waking up to it? For your most important theatre meal of the day, we've rounded up the big news you missed yesterday, what's on the agenda today, and a few extras to start your day off right.

The Bacon: See what's on the griddle today...

Cup of Joe: Perk up and revisit yesterday's big stories...

Broadway Weather Forecast: Today is copying yesterday's solid spring weather! Partly cloudy with a high of 67.

Quote of the Day: On happy accidents...

"The theater is so endlessly fascinating because it's so accidental. It's so much like life."
-- Arthur Miller (via BrainyQuote)

What we're listening to: Scott Alan's ANYTHING WORTH HOLDING ON TO, just released today. Our own Editor-in-Chief Robert Diamond has a personal connection to the composer, and this EP is Alan's first real solo outing. It's not light, by any means, but intimate and serious and deep.

Video of the Day: In honor of THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES' return to New York -- this time in Spanish -- watch a clip (or all of the videos, if you want!) from the original production, performed solo by Eve Ensler!

And finally, a Happy Birthday flashback shout-out to Orson Welles!

Welles, born on May 6, 1915 (he passed away in 1985), wrote, directed, produced and starred in many Broadway productions, beginning in 1934 with Romeo and Juliet. As an actor, he also appeared in Broadway's Panic, Ten Million Ghosts, Dr. Faustus, Julius Caesar, Heartbreak House, Danton's Death and King Lear. He staged Macbeth, Horse Eats Hat, The Shoemaker's Holiday, Native Son, Around the World and many other works, but he is probably best known for helming the revolutionary stage production Caesar in 1937. Welles also wrote a stage adaptation of Moby Dick, which was produced in 1962. Also famous for his radio and film work, among his most notable pieces were the terrifying 1938 broadcast of The War of the Worlds, and the classic 1941 film Citizen Kane.
