She’s Headed to Broadway!

I’m so excited! Today I have my very first post on my work’s site: KPBS, public media for San Diego. I’ve written about an exciting new PBS series, Broadway or Bust. I’ve included an excerpt here, but to read the entire story, I hope you’ll click on the link and check it out.  Oh, and please don’t forget to leave a comment!

Broadway. Spectacular, dazzling Broadway. The lights, the greasepaint, the curtain calls—the music and oh, those happy, dancing feet!

As American an institution as the proverbial apple pie, the flag, and the clamor of Times Square on New Year’s Eve.

Think Mary Martin, Patti LuPone and Stephen Sondheim.  All Broadway legends. Think George M. Cohan, who will forever be giving his regards to Broadway.

Think Nicolette Burton.

Nicolette Burton?

Yes, she’s the latest, up and coming talent with her sights on Broadway. Nicolette hails from Ramona, California, and, you better believe she’s going places!

    • Thank you, Brenda. Interviewing her was such a pleasure. She’s a bright, bubbly girl with lots of talent. One day her name will be up in lights and I’ll be able to say I got to interview her when she was on the brink of her career. 🙂

  1. Yeah — for you and for Nicolette! Being a “city girl,” you certainly can appreciate the excitement, the glamor, the busyness of Broadway! And you captured it so well!

    • Kathy, me too! I saw her and Mandy Patankin and they were fantastic. I love Mandy’s voice. Also got to see Angela Lansbury in Sweeney Todd. She’s perfection! Thank you so much for reading!

  2. What an excellent piece of journalism, Monica. Congratulations! You really made me interested in watching. I bet it’s a helluva lot better than “Smash.” I’m going to set my DVR. Again, good job, girlfriend!

    • Thank you, Jayne. I studied Journalism in school, but have never really used it before. So, as you can imagine, I was a bit nervous. Glad you liked it! And, yes, be sure to tune in this Sunday night!

    • You are so right, Georgette. I got to go see many a play growing up so close to the city. Back then, tickets weren’t as expensive proportionately, as they are now. Saw some great shows in my day. Loved them all!
