Bww CD Reviews: Ghostlight Records' Tennessee Williams: Words And Music is Viscerally Sultry

When it comes to Southern playwrights, Tennessee Williams remains the quintessential example, and music is an inextricable element of both his cherished classics and lesser-known works. In a recent 90-minute concert, David Kaplan crafted a show that explores and celebrates the songbook of Tennessee Williams. Now, Ghostlight Records has released Tennessee Williams Words And Music, a CD that preserves the atmosphere and idea of the concert and features Alison Fraser's soulful and gravely alto.

Understudies Step Into the Spotlight in a New Web Series

In a world where a major Broadway revival of “cat on a Hot Tin Roof” included a ghost version of Skipper during previews, could a mash-up of “Twilight” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” really be that outlandish? At least, that’s the premise of new Web series “Understudies,” which follows “professional actor” Astoria Bagg as she first lands the understudy gig for Holly Golightly in "Twilight at Tiffany's" and then proceeds into rehearsals for vampire movement. Created and written by Elisabeth Gray—who actually did understudy Holly Golightly earlier this year during the Broadway run of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”—and Daniel Zimbler, the cast includes Tony nominee Alison Fraser as Astoria’s Tony winner mother, Aaron Costa Ganis (one of Backstage’s 30 on the verge last year) as Astoria’s fellow understudy, and Neil D’Astolfo as Astoria’s agent. With the first three episodes completed, the team is

Tina Alexis Allen...Got the Part

  • Backstage
For Tina Alexis Allen, the road to "In Masks Outrageous and Austere" was long and winding, and it really paid to keep her eyes on Back Stage.Allen first auditioned for Tennessee Williams' final full-length play three years ago, when an acting coach who was one of the original producers on the project recommended her. "I had heard that they were in development on it, so I got an audition and then was told I had a callback," she says. But the production was delayed, and she moved on to other projects. Then this February, she came across a casting notice for "Masks" in Back Stage. "It resurfaced, so of course I reached out to make sure my callback was still valid after three years," she laughs.At that point they were seeking understudies. Shirley Knight and Alison Fraser had already been cast, and Allen was brought in to read for a.
