I didn’t think anybody could kill “Lions, Tigers and Bears” like Amber Riley did, but Tamar did a good ass job. She made the song her own. I like the dramatics she brought to it. Her vocals are phenomenal. Watch the new Deluxe Version of “Straight Outta Oz:”

MAJOR SHOUTOUT To Broadway At The Hobby Center for inviting me to check out “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.” Even though I’m into theater, I didn’t know anything about this show. It’s less about plot and more about tech and special effects. The lighting and creative use of minimal props is […]

I’ve been in over 25 stage productions, so when I saw that Broadway At The Hobby Center hooked me up with a shiny, new coffee mug from the hit musical Hamilton, I almost lost my mind! The show’s coming to the H next year; the day after my birthday: April 24- May 20. Here’s a […]

Theater is my first love. I’ve been in over 30 productions. I was even in “The Tree of Life” starring Brad Pitt; if you blink you might miss me. But that’s beside the point. The point is…although the “Fences” movie was phenomenal; nothing can capture full emotion like live theater. Take a look at this […]

“Hamilton” is a musical that has changed the way people view theater. Show tunes don’t always have to be corny and classical.

We get a behind the scenes look at […]

Fun Stuff

I can’t wait to take my daughter to see Kubo and The Two Strings this weekend.  I hope it’s really good! Here is the trailer if you haven’t seen it!

I think we’ve all experienced that moment when our friend is texting and those blue dots appear, so we’re waiting and waiting on the edge of our seats. It sucks when those dots just stop and a text never comes through though. TEXT ME BACK! WHAT WERE YOU GONNA SAY!? THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME!!! […]

  Every week I do my best to showcase different things from the world of theater and call it “Show Tunes Tuesday.” Often times, the urban community is so closed-minded when it comes to music. We limit what we jam to one genre. I challenge you to broaden your horizons. Watch this hilarious mash up of […]

Amber Riley is my woman crush ERRDAY! That’s my girlfriend…. in my head! LOL She’s confident in who she is and her body type and makes no apologies for it. The media has this twisted perception of what beauty is and Riley defies that. She recently got hired to play Effie in the UK Production […]
