One of the best parts of being involved in such a supportive arts community, is the opportunity to do media appearances and interviews on behalf of the theater. This one was particularly fun because The Suncoast View on ABC-7(weekdays at 4pm) is filled with talented ladies all talking about important issues (from politics to beauty to red carpet fashion!). I got to sing a snippet of the title song of Cabaret in full costume and makeup (in the early AM, no less), and it was a total blast.
Now I know why mega-stars have those ear-pieces in... so they can hear the music! Unfortunately, my ear-piece popped out the second I started singing and I was too nervous to pop it back in. Luckily I was still able to hear the music from the speakers, or else that could have been disastrous! ;)
The lovely Michelle Bianchi-Pingel joined the View hosts to talk about our production of Cabaret. Michelle is the main woman in charge at The Players, where she serves as the Managing Director and CEO, alongside artistic director extraordinaire, Jeffery Kin.
You can tune in LIVE in Sarasota, FL or on MySuncoast.com at 4pm EST today, January 15, 2015. Michelle and I appear on the show around the 45-minute mark, so feel free to watch the whole segment, or catch the tail-end to hear me sing. A video broadcast will also be available and I'll post it for those who can't catch it live.
