Jessica Vanek is 18 years old and recently relocated from Las Vegas to Oklahoma where she is now attending Oklahoma City University as a Musical Theatre major. Though she loves musical theatre, she also has a deep devotion to jazz and standards. She has previously performed all across Las Vegas and has been pursuing her passion since the age of 9.
I've always been a fan of satire and cheesy comedy, but the Broadway smash 'Something Rotten' by Karey and Wayne Kirkpatrick took this art form to a whole new level. The show is currently on tour, and made a stop in Las Vegas's beautiful Smith Center. I was lucky enough to get tickets and experience this musical masterpiece.BWW BLOG: An Evening With Burt Bacharach at the Smith Center in Las Vegas August 10, 2017
Jess here. As some of you may know, I just graduated from a performing arts high school. Now that I'm on summer vacation I've taken some time to reflect upon my experiences in the high school theatre world. I thought I'd share some observations/insight with my fellow thespians, and attempt to shed a little light on topics that remain a mystery.BWW BLOG: CABARET JAZZ SPRING 2017 - Good Things Always Come in Three's June 12, 2017
