Every time I see a new show, or listen to a new soundtrack, it automatically is added to a sort of “database” in my brain. In a situation where I’m struggling to interpret emotions, I can search this database and basically “google” it.

It's crazy to think that it's been over a year since Broadway was shut down. I remember when they first announced it in March - I was studying abroad in France and I had just encouraged my friend to wait for a few hours in line for rush tickets for a show.

My secret to surviving as an actor. I am always excited to share this with friends, and see if they've come up with the same theory on their own. It always stirs up deep emotions when discussed, and is something that every actor and human being must place importance on. So, what is it?

You may not be aware of World Voice Day, but it’s celebrated every April 16th to demonstrate the enormous importance of the voice in the daily lives of all people. I can’t imagine a better person to observe it with than Candace Johnson, who leads CJ’s FitnesSing!™ on the MarshStream platform every Friday at 12:00 noon PT, free of charge. Her unique method combines physical activity with vocal training, and if either of those things gives you some trepidation, you needn’t worry. She blends the two seamlessly and makes it all accessible to students at all levels. In a single hour you’ll get some exercise, you’ll sing, and you’ll learn a lot about the voice and different vocal styles. And most of all, you will likely have a blast. Johnson is definitely a “people person” whose enthusiasm for is infectious. A soprano acclaimed for her vocal clarity and expressive interpretation, Johnson has concertized widely, including guest appearances at Carnegie Hall and The Manhattan Center. She earned her doctorate in voice performance from the University of Michigan and is on the music faculty at UC Berkeley. BroadwayWorld caught up with her recently to find out how she came up with her innovative approach. She also talked about her background growing up in the South as a girl who sang from a young age but didn’t initially see a path for herself as a serious student of voice. She was eventually able to fuse her Black music heritage with her classical training to find her true voice. Johnson is a delightful conversationalist, fun and upbeat yet also open and honest about her own struggles, and warm and empathetic in her responses. And she has an uncanny ability to make even the nerdiest aspects of vocal health sound like fun.

Jobsite the Independent In-Resident Theatre Company of the Straz Center as by annual tradition brought Shakespeare to Tampa Bay once again with the first of Shakespeare’s History offerings to be staged locally. For me, Jobsite is the “Cream of the Crop” when it comes to presenting Shakespeare’s works. No one in this region “Rocks the Bard” as hard, as relevant, and as daring as Jobsite and their players. David Jenkins and Giles Davies have outdone themselves here. To a rocking, and pulse-inducing score by Jeremy Douglass and flashes of projections making you feel like you’re in a different time frame this production has it all. Henry V normally not the most sought-after of the History offerings is a stellar and triumphant display of magnanimous proportions and this cast is in true form.

In William Shakespeare’s beloved comedy, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, a motley cast of characters find themselves in an idyllic forest filled with magic and wonder. So, it is quite apropos that Orlando Shakes’ current production of this timeless classic is being offered outdoors, at a park (Lake Eola Park) in a beautiful setting by the water. And like the young lovers and the “Mechanicals” who enter the woods not knowing how their lives will change before the night is through, audiences seated in the Walt Disney Amphitheatre are in for an evening of magic and merriment – one that, I must say, is long overdue.
