Bridges

Bridges: A New Musical explores the ongoing struggle for racial equality and gay rights in America through the eyes of a multiracial family from the years 1965 to 2008. In 1965 Selma, a young woman boldly joins a march to fight for her civil rights. Decades later, in 2008 Berkeley, another young woman faces her own battle for equality and LGBT rights. As their stories collide across time and distance, each must come to terms with who she is in the context of a changing and complicated world. Bridges: A New Musical is an empowering story that explores our country's past and present -- how far we've come, how far we have to go, and the bridges we must cross to get there.

AMERICAN PSYCHO gushes blood, sex and moneya?'and Utah Rep fearlessly stages the musical of the controversial bestseller. The musical has 'something for everyone: romance, murder, '80s nostalgia, and a cornucopia of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll,' says the company's director. 'Yet despite its surface, this isn't a mindless ride through escapism. Before the audience has a chance to catch their breath, their minds, and maybe even hearts, will already be engaged.'

Andrew Samonsky was born and raised about an hour north of Los Angeles in the coastal town of Ventura, CA. He majored in Music at California State University, Northridge, which just so happens my Alma Mater. Part of the Opera Program, Samonsky started taking drama classes from two professors, Peter Grego and Linda de Vries, who were the first theatre professors to direct operas in the music department. It was a huge educational opportunity for Samonsky to get acting training, which prior to this, the opera students never got. Samonsky says Grego and de Vries were instrumental in helping him prep and get into Grad School at UC Irvine. He shifted into theatre/musical theatre and hasn't looked back. A veteran of several Broadway and off-Broadway shows, along with several national tours and a Drama Desk Award nomination, I had the incredible good fortune to have a long chat with him about his career and his role in the National Tour of COME FROM AWAY, which lands in Montreal on Tuesday, November 26, 2019.
