If you follow “Un-Block The Music,” you might have noticed that I haven’t been around much. In between a quick shore vacation and a lot of computer problems, I also have been working on a book proposal. I have two potential publishers, but I have had to do a lot of work to organize it. Hopefully, I will be able to share more news soon!
You may have also noticed there have not been any new episodes of “From Bullets To Broadway: Featuring Emergency The Musical”. I am sad to report that the WFYL station owner and manager Alan Loch died suddenly, and things have been in flux. It’s so very sad, and “Un-Block The Music’s” heart goes out to all those who love him. I will keep you updated on the broadcast when I hear something.
In the midst of a little uncertainty, “Un-Block The Music” is still working hard at getting new interviews and following the path to theaters reopening. Press invites have been starting to trickle in for Off-Broadway productions, and I am getting really excited!!!!
Some great interviews are coming your way this summer! Here is a tentative list:
Welcome “Un-Block The Music” back this week as I post my interview with Aaron Michael Ray about “A Black Lives Matter Podcast From The North American Touring Company of Come From Away.”
Paul Gatehouse, Sound Designer For Six, reopening on Broadway Sunday, September 16
Dean Sharenow, musical coordinator for Girl From North Country, returning to Broadway October 13
Ryan Doyle, who played “Michael,” in Safe And Sound (he has a new album…and maybe an update about Safe and Sound????)
Then, there are many “Women Wonders”:
Jennifer Ashley Tepper about her newest volume in her book series, “Untold Stories of Broadway”, the return of the famed 54 Below concert space, and whatever producing projects she may have on tap.
Emilie Battle, musical theater and fitness guru
Laura Galindo, songwriter and band leader Capricorn 29 and Laura Galindo Band
Then, “Un-Block The Music” will talk to playwrights and librettists, Stacey Luftig and Barbara Bellman about past and upcoming projects
Some other interviews have been scheduled as well, so it promises to be an exciting Summer and Fall for “Un-Block The Music”. I can’t wait to get back in a concert seat or a theater seat or a ballet seat….You get the idea. And, yes….I AM FULLY VACCINATED!
