by Shari Barrett - May 28, 2024

Every so often, a new play or musical being done in Los Angeles catches my eye with a big dose of curiosity. Such is the case with the musical The Translucent Frogs of Quuup with Book by Chris Larner and Music by Mark Stevens, produced by Alchemy Theatre Company and directed by Brian Pirnat with music direction by Brigitte Bellavoine at the Westchester Playhouse from June 14-22. Since I had never heard of it, I decided to speak with the director about the musical and his interest in directing it.

Video: Hakushi Hasegawa Shares 'Departed'; Brainfeeder Debut LP 'Mahōgakkō' Out in July
by Josh Sharpe - May 28, 2024

'Departed' opens the world of Hakushi's Mahōgakkō with unabandoned whimsy; immediately immersing listeners in a cacophonous yet prismatic array of unrelenting drums, skittering synths and glitched out vocal samples. The track gives a further look into the 'Exploratory Ratio', a self-coined term that describes Hasegawa's long-standing approach of balancing pop and pandemonium in their songwriting. Watch the music video!

VJM: Thank you both for giving of your time to answer my questions.  I don’t think I’ve ever heard of two Choreographers being hired for the same Broadway show, not even a revival, that I can think of.  How did that come about for both of you? Ellenore Scott:  Funny Girl was my Broadway debut as a choreographer. I was so happy when I got a call from Michael Mayer (the director) asking me to work on this revival with him. He knew I was NOT a tap dancer and was aware of the multiple tap routines in the show and asked if I would be down to share the billing with Ayodele Casel. Ayo is an extraordinary artist so I was thrilled to be by her side as she made her Broadway debut as well. Michael first met me initially at Head Over Heels on Broadway where I was an associate choreographer to Spencer Liff. In 2019, he asked if I would choreograph the Off-Broadway revival of Little Shop of Horrors and we opened the show October 17th, 2019. I have loved working with Michael and feel as though he keeps his people close and I’m grateful he thought of me for this historic revival. Ayodele Casel:  I met Michael Mayer in 2016 when he directed a New York City Center Encores! show I performed in.  Later that fall he invited me to perform that piece in a Broadway for Hillary fundraiser he was also directing. We'd kept in touch over the years and in 2019, after seeing a show I’d premiered at The Joyce Theater, he asked if I would be interested in providing the Tap choreography for a revival he was working on. Like Ellenore shared, Michael wanted to work with us both to deliver the full choreographic vision of the show. I believe it was a very progressive vision on his part and I’m really thankful that I was able to make my Broadway debut with this team.

Interview: Reneé Marie Titus of MOULIN ROUGE at Orpheum Theater
by Analisa Swerczek - May 28, 2024

I think you can just prepare to come and have a great night at the theater. When it comes down to it, it’s a love story and everyone can relate to that. It’s a love story between Christian and Satine, but also between these people who love the Moulin Rouge itself and shows all that they’re trying to do to save it and keep it alive. I think audiences are gonna fall in love with the story and also just have a fun night. Just prepare yourself to walk away had a great time at the theater.
