BWW Feature: MAC AWARD RECIPIENTS ANNOUNCED On Facebook Live BWW Feature: MAC AWARD RECIPIENTS ANNOUNCED On Facebook Live
by Stephen Mosher - Mar 31, 2020

On Monday, March 30th, the 2020 MAC Awards were broadcast via Facebook Live from the living rooms or Lennie Watts and Amy Wolk/Lorinda Lisitza in a split-screen presentation in which The Three Stooges of Cabaret made their community of artists laugh with many hi-jinks, giggles, grins, silliness, and an ongoing series of the new MAC Award theme song, penned by Wolk and Lisitza themselves. The intent was to bring some levity to a difficult time in the world and, judging by the comment scroll during the home-made telecast, the hardworking trio tickled the funnybones of many. As names were announced, recipients called in to say a few words (apropos to the proceedings, Mr. Watts' telephone ringtone is the Benny Hill theme song) and particularly moving speeches from the proceedings came from Lisa Viggiano, Meg Flather, and Jeff Harnar. The entire show can be seen on Broadway World HERE. Results of the voting can be seen below. (more...)

BWW Feature: Stephen Mosher's Pandemic Playlist Number Seven BWW Feature: Stephen Mosher's Pandemic Playlist Number Seven
by Stephen Mosher - Mar 20, 2020

Today's Pandemic Playlist is just the boys and girls. No groups, no specialty acts, just the women and the men who step out onto the stage and sing for their supper. These are some of the best, some you'll find on many a nightclub stage, some can be clocked traveling back and forth between the theater and the cabaret. Whatever journey each of these artists takes to get to the mic doesn't matter - all that matters is that they get to the mic... and the audience, because these ten are something to see. (more...)
