HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.

I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

Broadway Ladies: December 2012: Angelina Avallone

Ms. December 2012
Angelina Avallone

WHY SHE'S MS. BROADWAY: I'll bet that 99.9% of you who read the title of this blog said, "Who the heck is Angelina Avallone?  But I'll also bet that close to the same number of you who read this blog and others like it have seen her work either on Broadway or National Tour.  She has designed the make-up for an amazing 77 Broadway productions since 1996, including 7 this season so far!  And if you look at that full list HERE, you'll see that she has quite a range - plays and musicals, costume dramas and special effects, modern and period.  And like lighting technicians, if Ms. Avallone has done her job right, we either do not notice her design or we believe that her monsters, vampires and Grinch are real.  And I can't think of a better unsung hero of theater to honor this month than this Ms. December.
