Fun on a Friday: Bryan Cranston’s new one man show.

Shows about sports are usually hard sells.  When we’ve got females making the majority of the ticket purchasing decision, it’s easy to see why.  As much as I’d want to do Rudy The Musical, I won’t be after the rights anytime soon because my Mom would have no desire to see it (She’s my first focus group on all my shows). Unless, of course . . . Bryan Cranston was in it. Cranston can do anything.  And his Breaking Bad phenom status hasn’t gone anywhere.  Thankfully, his first stop after Walter went off to his final reward in one of the most watched …

Fun on a Friday: For Freshman Only

Calling all ‘shmen! Don’t worry, no hazing happening here.  Just a fun video from Carnegie Mellon’s class of 2017 aimed at all those new BFA students around the country who are probably still shaking in their tap shoes as their first week on campus comes to a close. What I love about this video is that it’s “user generated” content, instead of university generated.  I remember my first year at Tisch, and boy, I would have loved to hear how to survive my first year from students who had just gone through it.  I also remembering telling other people I …

Fun on a Friday: The Book of Mormon visits South Park

When we were doing research for the 2014 Broadway Marketing Awards, we stumbled across the video below and thought, “Genius!  Whatever agency did this is certainly getting a nod.” And then we realized a fan made it. We don’t have a fan-crafted marketing award (but in this day and age, we probably should), so I wanted to give this creator some props.  So, on this summer Friday, enjoy the “Fan-Made” video below . . . “When The Book of Mormon Comes to South Park.” (Email subscribers, if you can’t see the video, click here to watch it.)   (Got a comment? I …

Fun on a Friday: Ever wonder what Marlon Brandon put in his Bio?

Sometimes I think choosing what to put in your bio for a new show can be more stressful than the opening itself!  Do you include that Off Off Broadway show?  Do you thank your parents?  Do you add a ILYKD??? A little known fact – the reason that actor bios in Playbills are so short is that every show gets a set amount of pages from Playbill for free, and once those pages are used up, the Producer gets charged.  Take a big show with a big cast, and a lot of Producers, and you’ve added an unbudgeted expense to your …

Fun on a Friday: The stars that should replace in Les Miz

I found ‘em. I found the stars that will replace in Les Miz.  (Cameron, you can thank me later.) I just did a Fun on a Friday blog last week, so I normally wouldn’t put one up again so quickly (I’m a “fun” curmudgeon, I guess), but I just get such a kick out of this video and the stars in it, that I had to break my personal bloggin’ rule. I’ll admit that one of the reasons I love the vid is because it reminds me of my freshman year at Johns Hopkins University, when me and my dormmates …
