Disney’s ‘Frozen’ Broadway Musical: The First Official Production Photos

09.14.2017 | By |

*Update: We have new footage of the curtain call Opening Night in Denver. See below.
Here are the first production photos of Disney Theatrical’s new Broadway musical Frozen which you can see above. The pre-Broadway engagement at the Buell Theatre in the Denver Center for the Performing Arts opens tonight and continues through October 1, 2017. This Broadway-bound Frozen, a full-length stage work told in two acts, is the first and only incarnation of the tale that expands upon and deepens its indelible plot and themes through new songs and story material from the film’s creators; in fact, this new stage production features more than twice as much music as the film.  Like the Disney Theatrical Broadway musicals that have come before it, it is a full evening of theatre running over two hours.

Only One Latino Makes The 2017 Tony Nominations

05.2.2017 | By |

The 2017 Tony nominations were announced this morning with only ONE Latino making the list -Puerto Rican Ruben Santiago-Hudson who directed the six-time nominated August Wilson play, Jitney. The celebration of the Tony’s diversity progression died in the musical category this year in comparison to last year’s Hamilton phenomenon. That’s not to say Broadway as a whole hasn’t made an effort to include more African-American, Asians and Latinos in their shows (Chicago, Miss Saigon, Anastasia, et.al). They have and sometimes at the cost of including them in nonsensical roles (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), but at least they’re there. In the play categories, we did witness inclusion in most of the nominations, in particular, Jitney, Oslo and Sweat. For me personally, Latinos are a forgotten ethnicity in the eyes of arts today. Lin-Manuel Miranda cannot be the sole torch bearer of the largest majority minority in our nation. It has to change, we have to change it. Read More

‘Hamilton’ Scores Record-Setting 16 Tony Nominations: See Complete List

05.3.2016 | By |

The nominations for the 70th annual Tony Awards announcement were a historic moment for Broadway and for diversity this morning – Puerto Rican icon Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton scored a record-setting 16 nominations. On the play side, Long Day’s Journey Into Night had 7 nominations, most by a play this year. Latinos made their presence felt this year by having Costa Rican Danny Burstein nominated for Best Actor in a Musical for Fiddler On The Roof, Colombian choreographer Sergio Trujillo for On Your Feet! and Puerto Rican Lin-Manuel Miranda for ‘Hamilton’ for Best Actor in a Musical as well. Years ago, one Latino nominated for a Tony was historic, now 3 of them are. Times are a changin’. Read More

‘Lady Day At Emerson’s Bar & Grill’ – My Experience Of The Billie Holiday Broadway Musical

07.23.2014 | By |

I missed the opening week of the Broadway musical Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill which opened April 13, so once I heard the show was extending its limited performances until September 21st, I had to go see it. Apart from the record-setting Tony winning performance from Audra McDonald (she won her 6th Tony by beating Angela Lansbury and Julie Harris with 5 wins), my other main interest was to listen to Billie Holiday’s music within a Broadway setting, something I had never witnessed.
