A Burst of Energy in the Regional Theater
There is a current burst of energy in regional theaters, many of which have taken advantage of a strong economy, a growing companionability with commercial producers, and their own institutional maturity to present riskier and more expansive work than they did five years ago.

Godspeed Tunes Up Names Change. Opera House takes on Musicals moniker, to bow in April.
That is actually how Variety spelled "Goodspeed". It is unfortunate. Remember when Variety used to care about Broadway? I know that this is simply a typo, but Variety's coverage of Broadway is pretty poor considering what it used to be.

I hear Lea Delaria got a record deal with one of the big music companies...

Ron Bohmer is The Scarlet Pimpernel on the National Tour. Ron joins the company with his first performance in Denver on Dec. 12th. This tour is actually a different version than P3 that Ron performed on Broadway, so he will need a week to rehearse with the company in Tempe.

I can't believe how many of you were still coming to this website through jamesmarino.com... until I killed the site this weekend. So bookmark BroadwayStars! The other site will probably not be back for a long time.

Danny Zolli's CD... I spoke with Danny the other day about his CD. It is 12 tracks, of which 7 are ready to be mixed. He really has no deadline for the CD, other than sometime soon, so perhaps we will see it in the spring. (At least he has not been working on his CD as long as Stokes has.) He only has one tune from a show. Of course it is Gethsemene, which Danny sings better than *anyone* who has ever walked this earth. The rest of it is definitely rock and roll. I am looking forward to hearing it. Danny is a wonderful talent.
