In Sunset Boulevard, "Norma Desmond" sings "I've come home at last!" & that is what I love about Christina Franklin's journey w/TADA! Youth Theater. She started out in TADA's! Youth Ensemble & now has come back as the writer/director of their latest production, New York, New Year, which tells the story of "Tess" who moves to NYC in the middle of the school year from her hometown of Missouri & wonders how she will fit in. New York, New Year plays TADA! Youth Theater 4/29-5/21!
If you loved the finale of Feud: Bette and Joan, then be sure to check out the second part of my interview with Feud writer Michael Zam, who gives us the backstage stories that didn't make it into the show as well as some insight to Bette Davis & Joan Crawford! Live from The Algonquin Hotel, Michael Zam & I go at it again with even more tales from Feud: Bette and Joan!
What can I say about the man who adores me to no end? I can't believe I've known Joe Gulla for eight years, seeing him go from fellow blogger to award winning playwright! I'm thrilled to bring this NEW interview to you about Joe's latest play, GARBO, recounting his three-year "unrequited" love affair with the bartender/owner of the tiny, hidden, candle-lit Garbo Bar in Rome, Italy. GARBO will be presented in the 2017 Downtown Urban Arts Festival on Tuesday, 5/9 at 7pm at The Cherry Lane Theatre!
For most of my interviews, I Call and the artist answers. Every now & then the roles get reversed & an artist calls me and I Answer. That was the case with Will Van Moss. He was looking to get some exposure for his acting & one of his teachers Bobby Cronin recommended he write me to see if we could do an interview. Well, whenever Bobby Cronin calls, I ANSWER because Bobby is the best! I am so thrilled to get to speak with Will about his acting career so early on!
After seeing Michael McKeever's new play Daniel's Husband I couldn't wait to find out more about it. I was thrilled when I called, and Matthew Montelongo answered. I was so taken by his performance, it's great to delve more into Matthew & his portrayal of "Mitchell." Daniel's Husband takes an unflinching look at how we choose to tie the knot. Or not. Daniel's Husband plays at Cherry Lane Theatre in NYC through 4/28 only!
