Sexy SCARS Readers:
Welcome back to my BABBLING BROOKE BLOG! As promised, you will get a little HORROR...a little HOLLYWOOD...a little HIGH DRAMA! :)
HORROR: As an artist, you go through many experiences, projects and mediums in your career...some memorable and some you want to forget. When I was young and doing theatre in New York, I worked on an Off-Broadway Rock Opera called THE CURE. I originated the role of JEWEL, a drug-addicted, HIV positive teen living on the streets who is introduced to a Vampire Coven that feeds off of the sick and criminal and holds "THE CURE". I don't want to share too much, but what I do want to share is that this was one of the memorable and artistic experiences of my career and it holds a very special place in my heart! From the story to the characters to the music to VAMPIRES!!! :)> I am proud an honored to announce that the show will be revived in NYC and you MUST go support Creator/Composer, Mark Weiser and Director, Elizabeth Lucas! Here's the latest information below:
"A rock n roll graphic novel about two friends who discover the world's last surviving vampires. When offered their own chance to live forever, one friend is seduced while the other barely escapes with his life, setting in motion a fight for survival that threatens to bring down the entire city.
At the crossroads of humanity and immortality, there you find THE CURE."
I am thrilled to announce that my musical, THE CURE, has been invited to be a part of the 2009 New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) in September/October.
THE CURE is a rock n roll graphic novel come to life exploring the desire to live beyond the boundaries of mortality. The story...A man's search for a reason to live turns into a fight for survival when he falls in love with one of the last surviving vampires. Our characters struggle to find the value of their lives, and how to make that meaning last beyond their own existence. For each of them, as for each of us, the answers are different, but the question is as old as time itself - How do we gain immortality? What is THE CURE?
THE CURE is a darkly compelling story based on one of the most popular subjects of all time - vampires. In the last few years alone, we've seen franchises of TRUE BLOOD, TWILIGHT, BLADE, UNDERWORLD and countless video games, comic books, TV shows and films all surrounding our fascination for the eternally young, beautiful and seductive vampire. Unlike musical theater's previous attempts at tackling the vampire mythology, THE CURE tells an entirely original story, with a modern setting, modern music and a sensibility that melds the visceral impact of live theater, the sounds of rock n roll and the storytelling style of graphic novels. Never has the popularity of vampires been so rampant, and never has a stage show captured the heart of the vampire legend like THE CURE. -Mark Weiser
HOLLYWOOD: The word about THE SINATRA CLUB is spreading fast! Check out some videos and breaking news:
And, here's a fun one in the NEW YORK POST, if you are a GOODFELLAS fan:
June 12, 2009 --
HENRY Hill, the lovable mobster played by Ray Liotta in "Goodfellas" (1990), has become a pathetic, racist drunk, according to witnesses who saw him recently. Last week, "Crazy" Sal Polisi -- who testified against John Gotti at the Dapper Don's trial in 1986, and went into the witness protection program when Gotti was acquitted -- brought Hill to the Los Angeles set of "The Sinatra Club," the movie Polisi wrote about Gotti's first social club. "It was 10 a.m., and Hill was blitzed. He was pathetic," one cast member told Page Six. "And then he starts dropping the N-bomb. And we have black guys on the crew . . . He was escorted off and out." The picture stars Jason Gedrick as Polisi, Danny Nucci as Gotti, Michael Nouri as Carmine Fatico, Joey Lawrence as the club's "half-assed singer" and Leo Rossi as Paul Castellano.
And, you think horror movies are scary ;)
