BWW Blog: YOU ARE ENOUGH - an Original Yale University ProductionBWW Blog: YOU ARE ENOUGH - an Original Yale University Production
by Guest Blogger: Cassandra Hsiao - April 25, 2018

YOU ARE ENOUGH, a collection of three original one-acts, opens tonight. This will be the third time playwright Dylan Schifrin witnesses two of his works come to life. What makes it more phenomenal is that he is only a sophomore in college. (more...)
BWW Blog: LOBBY HERO on BroadwayBWW Blog: LOBBY HERO on Broadway
by Guest Blogger: Cassandra Hsiao - April 18, 2018

Life moves in circles. This sort of cliche isn't the message of Lobby Hero-rather, the play in itself is emblematic of the spirit of zeitgeist, the kind where unintended artistic choices turn out to be eerily prescient. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Nolan Robinson - April 17, 2018

One great part of Northwestern is that it is a campus filled with people who have a plethora of stories to tell: lessons they've learned, tips and tricks they've found useful in surviving college, and crazy and exciting adventures they've been able to experience in their life. (more...)

BWW Blog: Acting - A Leap of FaithBWW Blog: Acting - A Leap of Faith
by Guest Blogger: Cassandra Hsiao - April 4, 2018

For the next month or so, I'll be memorizing lines and living from rehearsal to rehearsal. I'll be collaborating with actors older than me, actors with countless years of experience under their belt. I'll be digging deep into three original one-acts and studying videos of goth girls, Sheldon Cooper, and Zooey Deschanel to help me step into the shoes of my respective characters. And if I'm honest, I'm a little nervous. (more...)
BWW Blog: Finding Art in the Big AppleBWW Blog: Finding Art in the Big Apple
by Student Blogger: Nolan Robinson - April 2, 2018

This Spring Break I was fortunate enough to travel to a city very close to my heart but one that I had only encountered through television and movies and books, most notably, the second season of Glee. This past week I traveled to New York City for the first time for seven full days and my eyes lit up with the eternal lights around me and the feeling of the Big Apple was so overwhelming that all I could do, upon seeing the city from my plane and standing in the middle of Times Square for the first time, was shed a couple tears.

BWW Blog: Originally From MILTONBWW Blog: Originally From MILTON
by Student Blogger: Mia Dedear - March 30, 2018

With rehearsals well underway at the University of Texas, the illustrious team of 'Milton, MI' continues to persist in the delightfully challenging experience of creating a brand new play. I took a moment to chat with Sophia Quiroga, who portrays a struggling poet named Leah, and Dani Consoldane, who steps into the role of Amber, a sprightly college student. These two leading ladies shared insight on their journey of building the universes and personalities of Leah and Amber. (more...)
BWW Blog: What Do You Do with a B.A. in English?BWW Blog: What Do You Do with a B.A. in English?
by Student Blogger: Monique Hebert - March 30, 2018

As an English major I learned about the craft of writing which provided a foundation for my playwriting. I spent four years in my undergrad analyzing the great American and British poets and prose writers. I got a B.A. in English Literature instead of Creative Writing, and at first after I graduated I was mad at myself for not taking more creative writing courses. That was until I realized how valuable the skills are that I gained from reading a bunch of literature. I wasn't sure what I was going to be doing with those skills after I graduated, but here I am four years later and using these skills everyday when I write. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Kyle Mason - March 30, 2018

This has been quite the exciting last week! I finally have solidified all of my summer plans and couldn't be more excited. I move home in the beginning of May - only a little over 6 weeks away, which is coming up so quickly - and I luckily will be able to be living at home for almost the whole summer. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Micah Patt - March 23, 2018

I'm writing this post at 10:00PM with an hour left in Monday night Spring Awakening rehearsal. Today we had a music review since it's the first day back from spring break (which is why I didn't write a post last week; hear about me sitting on the couch watching Rupaul's Drag Race All Stars 3).

by Student Blogger: Griffin DeVries - March 22, 2018

It's a custom for my troupe to announce the upcoming season at the end of the year banquet. The tension in the room was thick as everyone waited in anticipation. The season was always something that was announced last. And finally, my teacher walked on stage with a folded paper in her hands and announced the last production of my senior year was Sister Act: The Musical. (more...)

Hey! It's been a minute since I've written, but oh so much has happened in the last few weeks. From spring break adventures to being seen at my first (two!) Equity Chorus Calls and performances in between, March Madness is certainly underway. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Carissa Tirico - March 21, 2018

The waiting, the waiting, THE WAITTTTINGGGGGGG. Shrek The Musical am I right? Best thing about being an actor is BY FAR the waiting. It's a never-ending cycle of dying, crying, having a sliver of hope, and then dying again. (more...)

Hey again everyone and welcome back to my blog! A ton of things have happened since the last time I wrote, so I thought I'd detail the new news and delve into a bit about not losing hope as an actor. ForewarningÂ… this has a very happy ending. (more...)
BWW Blog: Both Sides of the Casting TableBWW Blog: Both Sides of the Casting Table
by Student Blogger: Sophia J Grimes - March 15, 2018

I've been involved with theatre from a very young age, but mostly on the performance side. I didn't really become all that involved with the "behind the scenes" aspects of theatre until around half way through my high school theatre career, and even then I still mostly considered it a side thing for me. My main interest was performing, and I never really saw myself doing much else. I must admit that now I somewhat regret shutting myself within that "performer" box, even as I have recently broadened my horizons within theatre. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Kyle Mason - March 15, 2018

After 9 weeks of intense classes, rehearsals for two shows, and performances of one, it feels great to be back home for a week with some time off. After a successful run of Jasper in Deadland, I immediately started rehearsals for the IU departmental production of City of Angels. It's been so exciting to be working on my first mainstage production here! (more...)

by Student Blogger: Monique Hebert - March 14, 2018

The best theatre education I ever received was not in a classroom. It wasn't on a stage either. What I know about the theatre I gained from the years I spent volunteering as an usher. I started volunteering because I wanted to see plays and musicals that I couldn't afford to see, and somehow along the way I learned more than I ever thought I would. (more...)
