Mixted Tape: Contemporary Artists Covering Musical Theatre Classics

Mixted Tape: Contemporary Artists Covering Musical Theatre Classics

First up: Here’s a fun collection of some of our favourite artists covering the musical theatre greats. It’s not meant to be a comprehensive list; not everyone’s faves are going to be on it.  Not everyone is going to make every list every time. This isn’t a list of the “best,” it’s just that: a mixed tape. Also excluded were more recent folks from the theatre community covering theatre songs.

Why the Arts Needs to Stop Hating on the Service Industry

Why the Arts Needs to Stop Hating on the Service Industry

I see it in my social media feed, and I say nothing, mostly because I am afraid to. The fact that you do it in the first place makes me hesitant to think you’ll respond positively to being called out. You thought you were important enough to do it in the first place, and I don’t know if personally calling you out, no matter how gently, would be effective, although it permanently alters the way that I see you. No one else ever calls it out, either.

11 Broadway Performers That Have Amazing Music Projects

As a follow up to our  “10 [vocal range]s That Are Gifts To the World” series, we’re highlighting 11 Broadway Performers That Have Amazing Music Projects!

We’ll be focusing on mostly those who write their own original music (with a couple of exceptions).

Some of them may not have made their Broadway debuts yet, but they’re all superstars who deserved to make this list.

Sick & Tired of Forgiving and Forgetting When it Comes to Sexual Misconduct

Sick & Tired of Forgiving and Forgetting When it Comes to Sexual Misconduct

Not a single person is so talented that they and their abusive, inexcusable behavior cannot be replaced by someone equally talented, creative, capable and qualified--if not more--.
