BWW Blog: LOBBY HERO on BroadwayBWW Blog: LOBBY HERO on Broadway
by Cassandra Hsiao - April 18, 2018

Life moves in circles. This sort of cliche isn't the message of Lobby Hero-rather, the play in itself is emblematic of the spirit of zeitgeist, the kind where unintended artistic choices turn out to be eerily prescient. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Nolan Robinson - April 17, 2018

One great part of Northwestern is that it is a campus filled with people who have a plethora of stories to tell: lessons they've learned, tips and tricks they've found useful in surviving college, and crazy and exciting adventures they've been able to experience in their life. (more...)

BWW Blog: Acting - A Leap of FaithBWW Blog: Acting - A Leap of Faith
by Cassandra Hsiao - April 04, 2018

For the next month or so, I'll be memorizing lines and living from rehearsal to rehearsal. I'll be collaborating with actors older than me, actors with countless years of experience under their belt. I'll be digging deep into three original one-acts and studying videos of goth girls, Sheldon Cooper, and Zooey Deschanel to help me step into the shoes of my respective characters. And if I'm honest, I'm a little nervous. (more...)

by Roundabout Theatre Company - April 04, 2018

Arnulfo Maldonado/Set Design Bobbie Clearly by Alex Lubischer is exciting in its structure and unique storytelling -- I was immediately struck by how engaging the interview format can feel within a theatrical context. What is the setting for such a world? In the film/documentary version of this play, these subjects would be interviewed against a static background. But this play spans both various locations and time. (more...)


BWW Blog: Finding Art in the Big AppleBWW Blog: Finding Art in the Big Apple
by Student Blogger: Nolan Robinson - April 02, 2018

This Spring Break I was fortunate enough to travel to a city very close to my heart but one that I had only encountered through television and movies and books, most notably, the second season of Glee. This past week I traveled to New York City for the first time for seven full days and my eyes lit up with the eternal lights around me and the feeling of the Big Apple was so overwhelming that all I could do, upon seeing the city from my plane and standing in the middle of Times Square for the first time, was shed a couple tears.

by Student Blogger: Mia Dedear - March 30, 2018

With rehearsals well underway at the University of Texas, the illustrious team of 'Milton, MI' continues to persist in the delightfully challenging experience of creating a brand new play. I took a moment to chat with Sophia Quiroga, who portrays a struggling poet named Leah, and Dani Consoldane, who steps into the role of Amber, a sprightly college student. These two leading ladies shared insight on their journey of building the universes and personalities of Leah and Amber. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Kyle Mason - March 30, 2018

This has been quite the exciting last week! I finally have solidified all of my summer plans and couldn't be more excited. I move home in the beginning of May - only a little over 6 weeks away, which is coming up so quickly - and I luckily will be able to be living at home for almost the whole summer. (more...)

Corn DetasselingCorn Detasseling
by Roundabout Theatre Company - March 29, 2018

What is corn detasseling? Every corn plant has both male and female parts-the tassel and the silk, respectively. Detasseling is the process of removing the male parts of some rows in a cornfield in order to create strictly female plants, which can then be pollinated by the remaining male plants in the field. While mechanical pullers are used to pull as many tassels as possible, they typically only get about 70% of them, meaning that the rest have to be pulled by hand. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Micah Patt - March 27, 2018

So this week has quite possibly been the most hectic thus far in my college career. Over Spring Break, I got a facebook message from a junior BFA Acting major, Silas, asking me to read for Rosannah Deluce in his and senior BFA MT major Kelsey Aycock's production of Brilliant Traces, by Cindy Lou Johnson. I had a cold read audition with my friend Caleb Gerber, and we were cast in the show! Yay! (more...)


AMY AND THE ORPHANS Design StatementsAMY AND THE ORPHANS Design Statements
by Roundabout Theatre Company - March 27, 2018

Amy and the Orphans is full of design challenges. For starters, it is a road trip play. Lindsey Ferrentino has written a play that has 18 scenes in 13 locations and in which there is no home base. Every location she describes is transient and impersonal, and most of the scenes take place in public locations. As a designer, the question becomes why? (more...)

I'm writing this post at 10:00PM with an hour left in Monday night Spring Awakening rehearsal. Today we had a music review since it's the first day back from spring break (which is why I didn't write a post last week; hear about me sitting on the couch watching Rupaul's Drag Race All Stars 3).

by Student Blogger: Griffin DeVries - March 22, 2018

It's a custom for my troupe to announce the upcoming season at the end of the year banquet. The tension in the room was thick as everyone waited in anticipation. The season was always something that was announced last. And finally, my teacher walked on stage with a folded paper in her hands and announced the last production of my senior year was Sister Act: The Musical. (more...)

The waiting, the waiting, THE WAITTTTINGGGGGGG. Shrek The Musical am I right? Best thing about being an actor is BY FAR the waiting. It's a never-ending cycle of dying, crying, having a sliver of hope, and then dying again. (more...)
