It’s almost time for the 2018 Tony Awards! There are so many wonderful performances from the Tony Awards telecasts over the past 50+ years, but the year that blogger and StageAgent editor, Laura Ware, remembers best is 1987. Read her latest blog to see why that year stood out for her. What are your favorites from the past? And what will be the standout this year?
StageAgent invites you to take a trip into the world of Musical Theatre Overtures. Twenty favorites are in the list, recommended for one reason or another by several of our contributors. They range from Mozart operas of the late 1700s to Broadway shows of the Golden Age to shows from the late 1990s and mid-2000s. We’ve even included a playlist so you can check them out!
Over the past few months, we have been asking our contributors here at StageAgent what some of their favorite theatre books were, whether it was for a summer read, something that greatly influences them, or just an amazing reference book to have on hand. So to kick off 2018, here’s a suggested reading list, a quick run down of 12 books recommended by the StageAgent team. We think there’s a little something here for everyone. Enjoy!
Every actor’s (or stage manager’s) journey is unique and joining the Actors’ Equity Association (AEA) is a personal decision that only you can make. I suppose it’s appropriate that I weigh in on this topic as it’s a decision I am in the middle of making myself. My life and career have presented an opportunity which begs the question, are you ready? Your path will be different, or perhaps similar! In either case, here I am, an actor teetering on the edge of Equity. What about you?
