Set in the fragments of a shattered world, this provocative and powerful musical exploration imagines a conversation between Simone and three African-American women. In the aftermath of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in 1963, Nina Simone rocked the nation with 'Four Women,' her tribute in song to the four young girls murdered. Scholar and artist Thulani Davis called the song 'an instantly accessible analysis of the damning legacy of slavery, that made iconographic the real women we knew and would become.'

Far from being musical heresy, R&H Goes Pop! instead serves as a reminder of how Rodgers and Hammerstein were at the forefront of musical theatre during their time, and how their music is truly timeless.

'There is nothing greater than the arts to affect and shape the whole person,' says Karen Vitco, who along with founder Gwen Berger, is one of the directors of Eagles Wing Studio, a musical theater company in South Charlotte, North Carolina that has positively impacted and enhanced the lives of its students since their neophyte performance of Little Women (still as CHEA singers) in 2013. Having obtained their nonprofit license in 2014, the company provides rigorous training in the fields of classical singing, dancing and acting techniques, as well as the opportunity for unlimited personal growth in each student. Annually, the company presents a musical in the spring for both the Junior and Senior Companies, as well as a recital in the fall, along with outreach programs at nursing homes, assisted living and community events, all of which has been curtailed temporarily by the coronoavirus. Classes continue with full covid precautions and safeguards. The company's mission includes fostering a lifetime appreciation of the arts and strengthening leadership skills in its performers and students. I spoke with Gwen Berger and Karen Vitco about the company which has now added two gifted artists Mavis Scully and her daughter Guinevere to its ranks.

With the current theatre world on hiatus, I have created a Spotlight Series on Broadway World which features interviews with some of the many talented artists who make our Los Angeles theatre community so exciting and vibrant thanks to their ongoing contribution to keeping the Arts alive in the City of the Angels. And just like all of us, I wondered how they are dealing with the abrupt end of productions in which they were involved. This Spotlight focuses on Monica Ricketts who discovered the magic of performing onstage as a child and never looked back or wanted to do anything else.

This Spotlight focuses on Elizabeth Adabale, a dedicated musical theatre entertainer who studied public health and theatre at the University of Southern California and taught high school biology with Teach for America, until the stage pulled her elsewhere. I first met her in 2013 when she began to audition for productions in Los Angeles and I knew with her talent and stage presence, Elizabeth was destined to a?oehit it biga?? on stages across the country! I reached out to her to find out how is she dealing with the cancellation of her national tour in 'The Color Purple' after 111 performances.
