Hi Guys - today I am posting a MAKING IT HAPPEN with Mike Visceglia. He has a crazy impressive resume as a bassist touring with big name pop & rock acts all over the world - he is my first interviewee who is not a musical theatre stage performer. He works on Broadway playing in the band at KINKY BOOTS! He happened to get this gig after a very different career. And he's just a cool guy to talk with!!! Enjoy!!

The latest MAKING IT HAPPEN is with Broadway caricature artist, SQUIGS! Squigs is a performer who started drawing caricatures as closing night gifts, and it turned into a GREAT way to keep his career in the arts going - he splits his time sketching and performing!! You can see him next at Paper Mill Playhouse in Broadway bound CAN-CAN!

Happy Tuesday! Today the MAKING IT HAPPEN is with Emerson Steele, from VIOLET!! Emerson played Young Violet, which is the younger version of Sutton Foster's title character. She received tons of recognition for her work in the show, she had an amazing time, and she is only 14!!

Hi Guys - SO…this next MAKING IT HAPPEN is with Ari Groover, who made her Broadway debut in HOLLER IF YA HEAR ME. I am really sad that this show closed on Broadway (17 previews and 38 performances) - I saw it and it was really a moving show. PLUS how awesome to have an original musical with the music of Tupac, a totally new kind of musical than I have seen so far. I hope you love this episode!!
