The Broadway world is abuzz with all things FOLLIES so it was perfect timing that this past Monday night, at Judith Ivey's home, the 2001 revival cast of FOLLIES got together 'to glamorize the old days, stumble through a song or two, and lie about ourselves...a little.' Ok, so there was no singing, but practically the entire cast got together to celebrate what was an amazing experience in their lives and the amazing family they considered ourselves back in 2001. Blogging about the experience was Broadway veteran Randy Slovacek, who gave us exclusive permission to run his memories of the night (and production). As an actor, Randy has appeared on Broadway in Follies, Chicago and Hello, Dolly!, as well as the National companies of A Chorus Line, Cats, 42nd Street, Chicago and Hello, Dolly!. In addition, Randy is a published writer with articles in prominent magazines and is the author of his own blog, 'The Randy Report.'

Village Theatre KIDSTAGE Company Originals is back with a brand new musical production, created by the teens and adults of the KIDSTAGE Company. The characters, storylines, scenes, and songs are created through a process of improvisation and collaborative writing that aims to tell stories relevant to teens, with characters, conflicts, behaviors, and language reflective of the diversity of teens today. Save As... asks the question: What happens when a popular advice blogger suddenly goes offline, leaving everyone - from the Queen Bee to the lovesick nerd - without a connection? Exploring the themes of faith, forgiveness, and healing, Save As... tells the story of high school senior Taylor and her best friend Natalie. After Taylor's brother and Natalie's soul mate, Jason, suddenly dies, Taylor decides to take over his advice blog in a misguided attempt to fix everything for everybody. Helped along by Jason's ghost-with the aid of the resident goth girl Elvira-the students of Taylor's school learn how to connect with each other again.
