Liz Callaway gives Kristin Chenoweth a run for her money Aug 13

I have grown appreciation for the work of Liz Callaway as when I was in grade school, 1998 she performed as Grizabella in CATS. She is featured on one of my cherished albums entitled A STEPHEN SONDHEIM EVENING. I have read people rave about Leigh Ann Larkin's delivery of "The Miller's Son" which I had caught 'A Little Night Music' in April and enjoyed her performance. I also love the recording of the song that you will find Liz singing on this recording... as Leigh Ann has the characterizations

I can't remember my first Broadway cast album... but fondly remember receiving the OBCR of West Side Story for Valentine's day from my parents! (say at age 10/11)
The Dialogue between Tony and Maria @ The Gym (basically all the lines from their meeting but these two lines hit me like no other) Maria: "But of course... they are the same." Tony: "It's so much to believe..." As delivered well on the Tony Awards Broadcast in 2009.

Ahhh... this prompted me to write a little bit! I joined in August of 2003. Back then was still in H.S. now, a college grad and adjusting to adulthood! Been distant due to not seeing shows as frequently and now they are on my bill, not the parents and such. Anyways thanks to whomever posted this thread. So out of the theater loop I always say... I need to update my profile here too! Haha.

The first show I saw alone was CONTACT at the Vivian Beaumont... Followed by LES MISERABLES (Original Broadway run), BOMBAY DREAMS, ALL SHOOK UP, A CHORUS LINE (Revival), and PASSING STRANGE.
By the way BW is such a sweet distraction from school work! haha.

Well... I can't speak personally of a specific show I was aware of but after watching the documentary entitled SHOW BUSINESS - The Road To Broadway, directed by Dori Berinstein... The documentary made the show TABOO 's closing a very big deal.

I attend Point Park University as a Dance major and with alumni performing on Broadway and Touring, we are able to have wonderful,fun,and exciting master classes at school. Thus far, in my college career: Mia Price,then of the SPAMALOT tour taught us the ever-classic Bob Fosse's "Hot Honey Rag" which is always exciting to do. Most recently, two members of the National Tour of WICKED stopped by and taught us some choreography from the musical number, "Dancing Through Life". Also, Anthony Rapp and
Broadway Theaters used in films. Jun 26

I was watching one of my favorite films, 'Something's Gotta Give' with D.Keaton and J.Nicholson and was wondering what Broadway Theater was used in the film... also the Majestic was used for 'A Chorus Line' right?
A CHORUS LINE (if it weren't closing) Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth as Sheila
WICKED Kelly Clarkson as Elphaba
The Official Passing Strange Love Thread! Jun 20
2008, 01:23:03 PM
PASSING STRANGE is a show anyone can relate too. I didn't watch the TONYS due to being at a dance concert but if you want to see good footage of it... I feel the medley the cast performed on "The View" is good, and the performance at the OBIE Awards. (Both can be found on Youtube) Out of the 7 TONY Nominations I had hope it'd win BEST Book of A Musical (Which it did!) and Best Musical Score. It was really well written... or else I don't think the people who have seen the show wouldn't be moved s

For Non-Theater fans ... who may have heard the word 'Legally Blonde' is now a musical would spark interest in seeing a free clipping on the TONYS. I can't speak much of LoveMusik for I am unfamiliar with the show at the present moment.
re: Grease: thoughts on Equity Actors auditioning for the lead roles! Jan 15
2007, 11:50:39 AM
In general let alone Equity or not... some hopefuls out there who wish to perform on Broadway spend thousands of dollars towards a college education majoring in Acting, Musical Theatre, and or Dance. So I feel on a college student's level it's disconcerting about all this when selected people all over the country are in training for a job hopefully on the Broadway Stage. But I just have to keep reminding myself, no.1 the show is Grease... and reality tv shows are apparently in these days. I just
Score Published of ALW's "Song and Dance" ? Nov 16
2006, 02:45:34 PM
Hi All... I would post this on the student board but I feel I'll get better responses here. I choreographed a piece for my Dance Composition class to Variations 1-4 by Andrew Lloyd Webber from the Musical, "Song and Dance". My college library has the vocal music... I was wondering if anywhere the score was published and released? I need to document my choreography in writing as well as having my cast of 5 dancers perform it as my final. So it would be neat to see the music in front of me - writt

Smaller cast than you were thinking - You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown can be done with minimal sets i believe.
