BWW Feature: Creative Quarantine presents LES MISÈRABLES IN QUARAN-STREAM

BWW Spotlight Series: Writer/Producer/Actor Mykell Barlow

With the current theatre world on hiatus, I have created a Spotlight Series on Broadway World Los Angeles which features interviews with some of the many talented artists who make our theatre community so exciting and vibrant thanks to their ongoing contribution to keeping the Arts alive in the City of the Angels. And like so many right now, I wanted to find out how they are dealing with the abrupt end of productions in which they were involved. This Spotlight shines on writer/producer and actor Mykell Barlow, who I first saw onstage in the Los Angeles premiere of 'Dessa Rose' at the Chromolume Theatre. His next big production is his wedding planned for 6/13/2020, which he hopes can go on as planned.

Review: DESSA ROSE Musical Performed to Perfection Saluting Black History Month at Chromolume Theatre

First of all, kudos to director James Esposito for discovering the musical DESSA ROSE, based on the 1986 novel of the same name by Sherley Anne Williams. This awe-inspiring musical received its New York premiere at Lincoln Center in 2005 and it's a wonder no other theater group has decided to produce this timely exploration about the universal need for freedom and equality. With book and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and music by Stephen Flaherty, it tells the story of a young black woman (a runaway slave) and a young white woman (an abandoned mother) beginning in the years just prior to the Civil War and continuing through their journey to acceptance in the antebellum South. The audience has the role of playing their grandchildren, to whom the elderly pair tell their story as it is presented to us.
