“BREWS, POURS And SIPS” From AmericaOnCoffee sharing eventful happenings

[It was] a groundbreaking, Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, A Chorus Line, set a Broadway standard when it debuted in 1975 and [yet, it still] remains relevant today. A Chorus Line is a musical with a book by James Kirkwood Jr. and Nicholas Dante, music by Marvin Hamlisch, and lyrics by Edward Kleban. It shows an insider's view of the casting and audition process that goes in a Broadway show, centering around seventeen Broadway dancers auditioning for spots on a chorus line. The show won nine Tony Awards, along with a Special Tony Award for becoming Broadway's longest-running musical in 1984, and a Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1976. Production History A Chorus Line was formed from several taped workshop sessions with Broadway dancers known as “gypsies.” The taping for the first session was at the Nickolaus Exercise Center in January 1974, with lead dancers hoping they could form a professional dance company for workshops for Broadway dancers. Original Broadway productions The show opened off-Broadway at The Public Theater on April 15, 1975. It was directed by Michael Bennett and co-choreographed by Bob Avian and Bennett. Word about the show quickly spread, creating a demand for tickets that the entire run sold out immediately. A Chorus Line premiered on Broadway in July 1975 at the Shubert Theatre, where it ran until April 1990 for 6,137 performances. The original cast included: Robert Lupone as Zach Clive Clerk as Larry Donna McKechnie as Cassie Ron Kuhlman as Don Kay Cole as Maggie Wayne Cilento as Mike Baayork Lee as Connie Michel Stuart as Greg Carole Bishop as Sheila Thomas J. Walsh as Bobby Nancy Lane as Bebe Trish Garland as Judy Ronald Dennis as Richie Don Percassi as Al Renee Baughman as Kristine Pamela Blair as Bal Cameron Mason as Mark Sammy Williams as Paul Priscilla Lopez as Dianna Most of the original cast went on to perform in the Los Angeles production. The new cast of the “New” New York Company included Ann Reinking, Christopher Chadman, Sandahl Bergman, Justin Ross, and Barbara Luna. When the show closed, it became the longest-running show in Broadway history until 1997, when Cats surpassed it. Original West End production A London production of A Chorus Line opened in the West End at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in 1976. Initially, the international cast from the US retained their roles, including Jane Summerhays as Sheila. The original British cast took over the next year. It included: Jean-Pierre Cassel as Zach Jack Gunn as Larry Elizabeth Seal/Petra Siniawski as Cassie Lance Aston as Don Veronica Page as Maggie Michael Howe as Mike Cherry Gillespie as Connie Stephen Tate as Greg Geraldine Gardner as Sheila Leslie Meadows as Bobby Susan Claire as Bebe Judy Gridley as Judy Roy Gayle as Richie Jeff Shankley as Al Vicki Spencer as Kristine Linda Williams as Val Peter Barry as Mark Michael Staniforth as Paul Diane Langton as Dianna Plot Overview A tribute and celebration of the unsung heroes of the musical theatre, the chorus dancers, A Chorus Line examine a day in the lives of seventeen dancers all vying for a spot in a chorus line of a Broadway musical. Chorus dancers are often over-dedicated, highly trained, but are underpaid, and when they back up the star, they make him or her look more talented than they really are. For the most part, the characters portrayed in the show are based on the real-life experiences of Broadway dancers. The story takes the audience to a roller coaster of emotions as a group of potential Broadway performers is put through a dynamic series of dance numbers. Their numbers are gradually reduced from whom Zach, the director, must make his final choice. www.acriticsrant.com Image: Pinterest.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/brewspoursandsipsdotcom/support

Along the way, they cover the profound joy of using your voice, embracing your edges, seeing possibility all around you, and finding your “I want” song.    Thank you to our Season 3 sponsor, Armoire!

It took her years, a few serious bumps in the road, and one devastating election to finally clarify what was really important. (Hint: the answer was not “what other people think.”) Articulating what you want is powerful. An “I want” song in musical theater tells us about the character's desires and ambitions and needs…and spending your life and career exploring this kind of material is awfully helpful when you need to express your own wants. (Try finding your own “I want” song!) Every human being contains infinite possibility and potential—seeing more in ourselves and each other requires self-exploration, curiosity, a supportive community, and a willingness to see what's beyond the surface.      Casey Erin Clark is a voice, public speaking, and communication coach, performer, author, entrepreneur, podcast host, and leader in both the entertainment and business worlds. She is a fierce advocate for gender justice and spends her days speaking, teaching, and writing about the power of women's voices, while seizing fulfilling opportunities to perform on screen and stage. In 2014, Casey and Julie Fogh co-founded Vital Voice Training, a voice and speech coaching company on a mission to change the conversation about what leaders are “supposed” to sound like and empower everyone to own the power of their full vocal instrument and presence. Casey hails from the cornfields of southern Illinois (where she grew up singing with her family Von Trapp-style) and has a BFA in musical theater from Illinois Wesleyan University. She also coaches musical theater pros of all ages, is a member of SAG-AFTRA and AEA, performed on the 2021 Tony Awards and at the 2013 Oscars with the Les Miserables movie cast, and sings with the Grammy-nominated and Tony-honored Broadway Inspirational Voices choir.

From bagging Tony Awards® as co-Producers of the Broadway shows Moulin Rouge! and American Utopia and investing in broadway productions, he is now back in this show as a full-time investor and the author of his upcoming book “Backstage Guide to Real Estate: Produce Passive Income, Write Your Own Story, and Direct Your Dollars Toward Positive Change''! In this episode, Matt is back as he shares his transition from being an actor, then working in the tech industry, and finally learning about syndications. He'll also provide insights on his book as he tackles his catalyst on why he started writing one, why it's easy to understand (even for beginners!), and real estate concepts that you can look out for!

Additionally, feeling bad is not indicative of genuine contrition.Daniel, "[Dear Evan Hansen is] borderline evil."When someone undergoes the consequences of their sin, those consequences are nobody else's fault except for the one who incurs them. There may be influences, and there may be systems at play, but the onus of sinful consequences bear upon the sinner.Melvin isn't quite as offended by Dear Evan Hansen as Daniel, but he still thinks the movie is kind of lame even if he liked some stuff about it.Melvin also gets some schadenfreude from the idea that Dear Evan Hansen was marketed as a life-changing, encouraging movie only to have it fall flat on his face. He then compares it to Unplanned, the pro-life movie from 2019 that he felt seriously missed the mark.As of recording, Melvin had seen 39 movies from 2021. Dear Evan Hansen will likely land as #34 out of his ranked list.5 words from each host: Describe Dear Evan Hansen.Dear Evan Hansen accurately represents how a majority of people see mental health: through a poor, uneducated, and overly confident lens from which they have little knowledge or authority.Recommendations: Harold Lindsell - "Lindsell Study Bible: The Living Bible, Paraphrased - Reference Edition"The Ezra Klein Show - "The Case Against Loving Your Job"Jenny Nicholson - "A Needlessly Thorough Roast of Dear Evan Hansen"Support on Patreon for Unique Perks! Early access to uncut episodes Vote on a movie/show we review Social Links: TikTok Twitter Website Facebook Group Miles Morales themed Twitter Giveaway!

Support as little as $3 a month and have your voice heard!Dear Evan Hansen is our most expensive episode. Coming in at a whopping $35 for rentals, as well as 2.5 hours' worth of content, we truly have spent far too much on this episode. But it's all worth it for our Patreon Supporters! We love you all, and that's why we spend this first of three episodes discussing some of the history behind Dear Evan Hansen, how the casting for Evan Hansen immediately kills the movie dead, and the beginnings of what makes this movie so frustrating. Topics: Every year there is a movie that garners the scorn of film-goers. Currently, Dear Evan Hansen has it.Detailing the history behind Dear Evan Hansen, it's musical, it's awards, and now, it's movie.Ben Platt, the 28-year-old actor playing Evan Hansen, who is 17 during the events of the film, looks to be in his mid-30's based upon the hair, make-up, wardrobe, and camera lenses used throughout the movie. It never stops being a distraction.Daniel found Dear Evan Hansen, "very morally troubling and borderline disturbing at times for various reasons."Melvin likes movies where someone morally reprehensible builds a house of cards, and even audibly exclaimed to his wife while watching the movie, "See, this is awesome! I love this stuff!". So, in that respect, there are some things about Dear Evan Hansen he enjoyed.There are a lot of similarities between Dear Evan Hansen and a little-known Netflix movie called Sierra Burgess is a Loser, another villainous "house of cards" movie Melvin enjoyed.The movie really expects its audience to fill in the gaps for so many hard issues, all on top of the fact that Ben Platt looks way too old to perform as an older teen.Although the movie has a juvenile perspective to mental health and social issues, some things work like the song 'Requiem', where each family member sings their response to Connor's suicide, and how not everyone responds to the death of a family member in the same way.The song 'Sincerely Me' captures a bit of the dark-comedy aspect both Melvin and Daniel wanted throughout the movie.Daniel, on the topic of the many hard-hitting themes in the movie, "It's not examined at all. Nothing in this movie is examined. That's one of the problems."Recommendations: Harold Lindsell's "Lindsell Study Bible: The Living Bible, Paraphrased - Reference Edition"The Ezra Klein Show - "The Case Against Loving Your Job"Jenny Nicholson's "A Needlessly Thorough Roast of Dear Evan Hansen"Support on Patreon for Unique Perks! Early access to uncut episodes Vote on a movie/show we review Social Links: TikTok Twitter Website Facebook Group Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)

For this special archive edition of City Arts and Lectures, we present a 2008 interview with the lyricist and composer Stephen Sondheim.  Since his Broadway debut at age 27 as the lyricist for “West Side Story”, Stephen Sondheim has stretched the conventions of musical theater with sophisticated storylines and complex musicality.  Though his work has always been controversial, and met with mixed reviews from critics and audiences, Sondheim's impact on music theater is undeniable. His landmark shows include “Company”, “Into the Woods”, “A Little Night Music”, “Sunday in the Park with George”, “Assassins”, and “Sweeney Todd”.  Sondheim has won eight Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, a Pulitzer Prize, eight Tony Awards, and received the Kennedy Center Lifetime Achievement Honors and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.   Stephen Sondheim died on Friday, November 26, 2021, the day after enjoying a Thanksgiving dinner with friends.  He was 91 years old.  At the time of his death, he was working on a new musical called “Square One”. In this program, recorded on March 9, 2008, Sondheim was interviewed on the stage of the Herbst Theater in San Francisco by Frank Rich of the New York Times.  Join me now for a 2008 conversation with the late Stephen Sondheim.

The big opportunity is we don't have to invent something new. And in truth, nobody does. Everything we know, we got from someone. We get to build on it, or just give a different perspective or insight on it, or somethings simply introduce it to others, and get paid for it.

He was last in a grand lineage led by Jerome Robbins, Gower Champion, Bob Fosse, and Michael Bennett, but also provided a link to a new generation of choreographers-turned-directors like Susan Stroman, Jerry Mitchell, and Casey Nicholaw. Unlike his fellow director-choreographers, Tune also maintained a successful performing career. His nine Tony Awards (plus a tenth, for Lifetime Achievement) were earned across four categories, not only for choreography and direction, but also as both featured and lead actor in a musical, for Seesaw and My One and Only--a distinction no one else can claim.

It was all a coordinated, tuneful effort to lure audiences back to Broadway. And, it was a big night for Moulin Rouge! and The Inheritance.

The stage musical Dear Evan Hansen debuted on Broadway five years ago. It won six Tony Awards, including one for its star, Ben Platt. It's now a movie, and Platt, who's now 27, is back to play Evan, a deeply troubled high school student who tangles himself in a lie. There's still singing, there's still dancing, and there are still a lot of questions to struggle with in this story. Plus, we remember the work of filmmaker Melvin Van Peebles.
