Memphis is one of Broadway’s newest shows and it’s coming to the Majestic Theatre in February. Tickets go on sale this Friday for the Tony Award winning musical based on actual events.
The historic Pantages theater is currently presenting yet another modern masterpiece this summer: Fiddler on the Roof. You don’t need to be an expert in Jewish culture to appreciate this heart-rending story and to be dazzled by the spectacular musical numbers and dance routines that this production has to offer.
Melinda is a true star, a “Tiger” waiting to be discovered. He career, once she wins American Idol, will easily out shadow even previous season winners.
Mind you, this is a stupid name change since Sweeney Todd happens to be the name of a British fictional serial killer and title of a here about said serial killer. If I really wanted to remain in secrecy while I extract my revenge against Judge Turpin and his Beadle, I should have gone with a less famous name like Bob Smith. At this rate, I might have been better off changing my name to OJ Simpson. At least with a name like that, I will be regarded by the public as a murderer, but at least I’d get away with it.
She won an Emmy Award for her performance as Olive Snook in the television dramedy Pushing Daisies. Chenoweth is best known on TV for playing Annabeth Schott in The West Wing, and most recently as April Rhodes in GLEE, a role for which she was Emmy-nominated last year. In that role, she was able to use her multi-faceted voice on covers like “Last Name” (Carrie Underwood) and “Alone” (Heart). This season she reprised her role singing “Dreams” (Fleetwood Mac). She also had her own TV series, Kristin. Her film credits include Bewitched, The Pink Panther, Running With Scissors, Stranger Than Fiction, Four Christmases and RV.
Musicals aren’t always cheery like “42nd Street.” Think of the murderous barber, Sweeney Todd! I noticed some vampire musicals, but didn’t include them. Instead, here are three musicals to consider.
I had the pleasure of meeting up with Joshua to discuss writing, his theater company, big Broadway mega shows versus intimate productions and his strong preference for DC Comics over super charged crusaders of Marvel Comics. Soon, I found myself happily “geeking” out and connecting with him through my own super hero adoration.
That’s because practicing is necessary if you want to grow your skills as a drummer. You have to train your hands (and your feet) to play specific things, and you have to train your mind to react and interact in specific situations. Practicing helps you prepare for anything that comes up in a live playing situation, and it ensures that you have the chops necessary to get the job done.
Hairspray: This is one of my personal favorites. This is set in the 1960s and is full of racial tension. This has a great message and is very entertaining. Also, the main character is not the typical “popular” girl. She becomes popular because of her personality, rather than her looks. The characters learn that the personality is more important than what is on the outside.
