by Broadway's Backbone - Sep 14, 2017

In this episode: James Walsh is a jack of all trades, who masters them all. His newest endeavors include director with 'As Much as I Can,' a theatrical event focusing on HIV infection in the African American community, and as playwright with an original new play beginning previews this weekend at Queens Theatre in the Park. 'Jimmy And Carolyn' is a hysterical, true-to-life world premiere which opens officially September 22nd. Jimmy and wife Carolyn drive from Florida to idyllic Weekapaug, Rhode Island to celebrate Jimmy's birthday at the fancy beach house of their gay son and his life partner from Costa Rica. Once the pepperoni loaf has been devoured, the Italian cookies eaten, the cigarettes smoked, and the Pinot Grigio drunk, amid the laughter, dark truths are exposed as the family struggles to make sense of their irreconcilable memories of the past, and the choices they face as they move forward. In this episode James discusses taking control of ones own career, being impervious to negativity, and the importance of finding the keyhole into the center of your performance. http://queenstheatre.org/jimmy-and-carolyn (more...)

Hamilton and Bandstand's Andy Blankenbuehler has 3 Tony Awards, 3 shows running on Broadway, and 3,000 ideas in his head. He was always determined to be his best and to do this he realized that he had to stop apologizing, accept that problems gave him the best ideas, and that he works best when he is over prepared. He stopped performing because he wanted to tell stories and the ensemble (a group of distinct individuals) is the lens the story is told through. Having had to deal with personal tragedy and suffering, he knows first hand that art heals the soul. He must find an identity and do it as best he can, and that he married a superhero. (more...)

In this episode: ROMAN HOLIDAY's associate Hair Designer Mitchell Beck talks about how the hair department is the first  to arrive at the theatre, the last to leave, and they are usually kept in the basement.  He wasn't ready for New York City, but after 14 years of touring, realized it was NYC or back to Indiana.  He shares that hair in theatre, TV, and film are all the same language, just a different dialect; that creating wigs is similar to sculpting; and that the hair room is like the kitchen of the party... the best place to be.  (more...)
