An unfortunate stereotype emerges from some college and amateur theater programs that stage managers must rule with iron fists, must essentially act like jerks to keep the childish actors in line. But in a recent series of telephone conversations with some of LA’s top stage managers, it becomes clear that intimidation and rudeness are the antithesis of successful theatrical collaboration.

Also, congratulations to Derek McLane for another stunning set. (He did last year’s scenic design as well.) We will be keeping an eye out for an interview and hopefully some design renderings!

(And here’s hoping Disney will ask him to design Frozen if/when it comes to the stage!)

STAGE TUBE: Broadway Responds to Russian Government

The Russian Government recently shut down all theatrical performances, deeming them to be homosexual propaganda. Outraged, Russian Broadway came together and decided to respond in a witty performance. In the video below they discuss issues of love and sexuality, as well as social constraints and stereotypes.

The performance was directed by John Walton West and composed by Jason Michael Snow. The cast included a wide array of stars, including Jennifer Barnhart, Laura Benanti, Chirstina Bianco, Stephanie J. Block, Danny Burstein, Michael Cerveris, Joanna Gleason, Christine Pedi, Michael Rosen, Stephen Schwartz, and many more.
