Despite The South Dakota Oil Spill, Nebraska Has Approved Keystone XL Pipeline Construction — UPROXX

Getty Image Late last week, a Keystone pipeline leak dumped at least 210,000 gallons of oil (and possibly even more than that) in South Dakota.

The Evolution of the Female Broadway Singing Voice (Part 1) — November 14, 2017

The Evolution of the Female Broadway Singing Voice (Part 1)

Musical Theatre Resources

How has singing on Broadway changed over the years? This is a complicated topic that few individuals have explored at length. It is important to note that new research on musical theatre voice training is being released almost daily. We must explore this subject from multiple angles in order to fully understand it. In this two-part blog series, I will approach the topic from a historical perspective. These posts are not meant to be comprehensive in scope, but they will provide an overview based on personal research.

PART I: 1900-1960s

At the turn of the 20th century, virtually all leading ladies on Broadway were classically-trained, ‘legit’ sopranos. Prior to 1930, belt singing was used for character roles only.  Although vaudeville actresses like May Irwin, Stella Mayhew, Ethel Levey, and Sophie Tucker did sing in belt voice, they frequently did so in roles which stereotyped minorities.  It is important to stress that belting was not a Broadway…

Sorry, Gay Community in the Bible Belt, I Tried. — November 13, 2017

Sorry, Gay Community in the Bible Belt, I Tried.

Because I am a composer, not a writer, I tried to start a blog to find collaborators to create theatrical productions that could tell the stories of the suffering of Gay and Lesbian kids that grow up in churches in the Bible Belt. The problem is I’m not a writer, and need political and artistic articles as well as music, and Gay things added to the site to atract the audience and create a group. So, since I can no longer post things here that I find on the internet due to either an expense being charged, or a technical issue with something called bookmarklets, I can’t keep or use this site as anything but a reader. So, if I find someone else’s articles when I stick my head over here, which will likely be rare, then I’ll try sharing from the reader. However, this could be my last post.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Cunningham slammed the author of an Arts & Leisure profile of Sam Smith in a letter to the paper’s editor on Thursday, saying the profile’s opening paragraph, which detailed Smith’s propensity to cry, perpetuated “the stereotype about gay men as hysterics.” And did it “disdainfully.” From the profile’s opening paragraph: He…
