On this latest episode of The Ensemblist, Nikka and Mo interview three Broadway stars who have shined in ensemble musicals. As veterans of various types of Broadway shows, Telly LeungDana Moore, and Julia Murney explain how ensemble shows are unique experiences that require trust and flexibility throughout the entire journey.

As opposed to traditional book musicals with lead characters, supporting players, features, and ensemblists, ensemble shows tell their story differently- every member of the cast takes the spotlight at some point during the show. These three guests all have experience with this alternative way of storytelling through song- and their stories about what it takes to work as a group shine a whole new light on what it’s like to truly work together.

Stop using the same icon and the same name of a celebrity for your account. It’s confusing to other Twitter users, and also disrespectful to your favorite “idol”. Respect them as a person if you really appreciate their work.

Especially when combined with using their name as your name to make it appear to others that it the celebrity tweeting/replying to them.

You know who you are.

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!
