Summertime...Took a little vacation! Three reviews coming soon! Amazing Grace, Hand to God and Mamma Mia!

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: Ms. September 2014: Alysha Umphress

Ms. September 2014
Alysha Umphress

WHY SHE'S MS. BROADWAY: I picked this month's Ms. Broadway because she really fits what I initially intended these recognitions to be: a celebration of an established, but on-the-rise actor/actress.  I've been fortunate enough to have seen Ms. September in every show she's done on Broadway.  I will never forget her debut in American Idiot and marveling at her presence.  I couldn't take my eyes off of her - quite an accomplishment considering the sensory overload of that production!  And I joined the roar of cheers and applause at her sassy, scene-stealing moment in "Too Much Too Soon."  Since then, it's been fun to watch her work in On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, and in her replacement turn in Priscilla Queen of the Desert.  Now, I am excited to see how terrific Alysha Umphress will be as she steps up to a major role in the new revival of On the Town.
