BWW Feature: Dayton/Miami Valley This Week
August 18, 2020

Thanks to everyone for sticking with me as I work out the kinks of writing a weekly column.  With everything going on in the world, it has been a little difficult.  I think for the time being, I am going to move to a biweekly format until there is more to write about.  Hopefully, things will pick up soon.  If you have anything going on, please email me at bwwdaytonjenni@ or you can contact me via messenger on our Dayton On Stage facebook page.  

BWW Feature: Dayton Theatre this week
August 7, 2020

So sorry that I am running late on the column this week.  It has been a very emotional week, not only for me, but for many Daytonians as it was the anniversary of the shooting in the Oregon District, unquestionably one of the most difficult times in our citya??s history.  It has been hard to think of much else but trying to shake it off and focus on how Dayton is moving forward.  I would love to be in a theatre right now, energized the performances and the audience. As cheesy as it  sounds, theatre is what feeds my soul, and I am feeling a little weak without it.  Fortunately, there are some upcoming virtual events to help us all on our journey without live theatre.

With the current state of theatre in the world and in Dayton, I have been struggling to come up with ideas for things to write.  Honestly, we all know it has been completely depressing and we all want things to get back to normal - to be able to see a show, to be on stage, to be behind the scenes again.  The coronavirus has other plans and I am not sure when things will ever be completely back to normal or what a new normal might look like.  So, it came to me. I am going to start a weekly column here on Broadway World Dayton.
