I know for a few of my digital Callbacks, I was asked to speak about myself or perform material that represented me well. These Venues want to hire great performers, but they also want to hire great people. Don’t be afraid to show them who you are or what kind of material that excites you. After all, the last thing you want to do is show an insincere part of yourself, get the job, and then be miserable the whole summer because you don’t vibe with the culture and energy of the company.
BWW Review: CHICAGO, King's Theatre BWW Review: CHICAGO, King's Theatre
by Natalie O'Donoghue on September 14, 2021

Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, CHICAGO is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids.

by Student Blogger: Meredith Muirhead on September 14, 2021

Broadway is officially back, to the joy of all theatre-makers and theatre-lovers. However, this isn’t the world in which Broadway existed before its intermission. In the past eighteen months, more and more people have come to realize that Broadway is not the be-all, end-all of theatre, and they’re recognizing that Broadway success does not automatically determine the quality of any work. In fact, Broadway isn’t exactly the place for new, non-traditional ideas.

Student Blog: Have You Heard of A Dramaturg? Student Blog: Have You Heard of A Dramaturg?
by Student Blogger: Grace Cutler on September 14, 2021

I highly recommend that those who enjoy history, english, and theater, work as a dramaturg. This is a more scholarly part of the theatrical process and it aids the storytelling unlike anything else. Dramaturgs live in the world of the play from the production's beginning to its end and work from the perspective of the audience as well as the actors. Though an often overlooked and unknown part of a production team, a dramaturg's work greatly aids the rehearsal process and telling of the for the actors and audience.

Need some help predicting the winners? I have attempted to predict about half of these categories (mainly the musical theatre categories since I was not able to see the majority of the plays in the 2019-2020 season), and have provided some rationale for each category. Of course, all the nominees deserve awards, but only one can win in each.

by Student Blogger:Sydney Van de Putte on September 14, 2021

After a year of online school, I feel like I should be ready. I should be jumping at every opportunity to make friends, but my social anxiety along with a raging fear of rejection stops me in my tracks. I feel like I made more friends through Zoom than I have in real life. Seeing these people in real life is like seeing a micro-influencer in the streets. It is the weirdest experience of my life. I find myself as the kind of person who will not consider someone else their friend until the other person said it first.
