Peter Michael Marino received acclaim for pioneering online live shows at the top of the pandemic, and continues the run of his wildly popular "Show Up, Kids!" with performances playing on Saturdays in October. Kids from all over the world will feel like they're a part of this groundbreaking interactive live event as they hear their names, offer story suggestions, and are called on to help Pete put on a real live show from his NYC apartment.This interactive, semi-improvised, family show for kids 3-10 years old puts a comedic twist on the traditional kids show. When the main attraction doesnt show up, Pete enlists the help of the kids to help create a story by providing prompts and controlling everything from plot to props, characters to costumes, and settings to sound in a one-of-a-kind, 50-minute laughfest.A small, theatrical miracle. It is the joyful essence of interactive kids entertainment. - The Scotsman

The BroadwayWorld Beginner's Guide to: Musicals
February 09, 2021
There is a particular snobbery surrounding musical theatre: critics say that in a moment of high drama, crisis or emotion, the most unrealistic thing to do would be to break into song. Musicals are too camp, annoying and definitely not cool. They appeal to the coach parties of tourists rocking up in Leicester Square every weekend (those were the days!). However, musicals are not representations of real life, nor do they pretend to be. A successful musical has a magical combination of highly memorable music, an engaging storyline, incredible choreography and visually impressive set and costume design. It’s not a coincidence that the best musical theatre performers are called a triple threat, as they act, sing and dance, often without any perceivable effort.
