Betsy Wolfe Joins BroadwayEvolved In Chicago And Kansas City
With limited remaining spots, Betsy Wolfe, co-creator of BroadwayEvolved, reflects upon the past two years and what excites her about bringing BroadwayEvolved to select cities throughout the year.
"It was almost impossible to imagine BroadwayEvolved's second year being as exciting as its groundbreaking year, but it truly was just that. We had an incredible group of students from all over the world, who all came together and had a life changing week. The Broadway faculty who come, teach, and ultimately support this program is unparalleled. I mean, it's ridiculous the experiences and authentic connections the students make with the very artists they've admired for years. It's incredible professional training/mentoring with an emphasis on individual personal growth and success. It's the program I wish I had growing up. I knew after this summer we couldn't just do it in NYC. My hope is by bringing the mini intensive to cities around the US we can remove some of the barriers that can exist with the NYC intensive. We wanted to make it as accessible as possible, so I'm coming to the students! There is also no audition unlike our NYC Intensive, so it's more inclusive. It's designed to be for everyone."
CHICAGO (Oct. 19, 2019) & KANSAS CITY (Oct. 20, 2019) are one day, in-depth training programs for performers 11-22. Participants will be joined all day by Broadway star and BroadwayEvolved co-creator, Betsy Wolfe, in their own hometowns. During the full day they'll experience the incredible training that takes place during the NYC Summer Intensive. Both cities feature visiting Broadway guest artists, so the experience is unique for each city. The class sizes are intimate and there is tremendous emphasis placed upon individual training. All city details including registration information and more can be found at www.BroadwayEvolved.com.
