Theatre Review: A&A Ballet’s “Cinderella” 2018

Year 2 of Cinderella was sheer bliss!

BTSCelebs was invited to attend the lovely fairytale performance at the Studebaker Theatre today. Dancers Trinity Santoro, Lee Borowski and Ryland Acree shined as Cinderella, Prince Charming and The Jester respectively. The entire cast made the family friendly ballet even more enjoyable by their seemingly efffortless dancing throughout the entire show.

The adorable children performing as the grasshoppers, butterflies, gnomes and bees introduced the audience to the next generation of stars. Their dance was absolute perfection for ones so young!

While the seasonal fairies and international princesses (Spanish and Asian Princesses),  were dazzling, Cinderella and the Prince’s dance was the highly anticipated event of the afternoon. The two stars illustrated what fairytales are made of. They seemed like they walked straight out of a storybook with their dreamlike movements and sweet on-stage chemistry.

A&A Ballet is getting better every year. Chicago is anxious to see “The Nutcracker” (November  30th -December 2nd) and “Sleeping Beauty” (May 4, 2019) at the Studebaker Theatre.

[Interview] Singer Joshua Micah: “I’m Working On New Music That Will Be Released Before September”

Meet Joshua Micah!

The indie singer is still fairly new to the music scene, but he is already releasing incredible inspirational tunes like “Parachute”, “Who Says”. BTSCelebs recently had the opportunity to interview this new star in the making and learn a little more about him.

BTSCelebs: Who is Joshua Micah?

Joshua Micah: I’m from Connecticut. I love soccer, video games, music, traveling. I’d like to think I’m a pretty normal dude.

What piqued your interest in music?

My parents would always be playing music in the house. I started playing drums on pots & pans when I was a child. They saw that I had rhythm and bought me a drum set. I taught myself drums, guitar and piano. I always wanted to be around music or making it. I used to record demos on a karaoke machine with one microphone haha. Those tapes hopefully don’t exist anywhere anymore.

Which musicians are you interested in collaborating with and why?

I am drawn to people who are willing to take risks. I want to work with good people, and I don’t necessarily mean ‘music ability’ wise – I think the foundation of creating something cool and unique starts with where the person/writer/musician is at in their life and being honest and OK with that. I have yet to collaborate with anyone on a song, but I want to in the near future if it makes sense.

Describe the dream tour you would love to be apart of.

Coldplay. I don’t even have to be on it, I’ll just open doors for Chris Martin and be happy to do it haha.

Tell us about a couple unforgettable behind-the-scenes tour moments.

My drummer and I stayed in a really cheap motel in Florida once. It smelled so bad, and felt so moist and wet in the room that we couldn’t even sleep. It was so bad. Come 5 AM.. we were so mad that we were laughing about how bad it was. We left..

I recently forgot my bag with all of my clothes in it at the House Of Blues in San Diego mid tour and had to wear the same clothes for a few days in a row. It was fun.

On a more serious note, I met a young girl at one of my shows who has the same blood disease that I had when I was her age. That was crazy.. I’ve never met anyone who has it.

If you weren’t pursuing music, what other career field would you enter?

I think I’d want to teach high school. I don’t know what I would teach..

What can we expect from you for the remainder of 2018 going into 2019?

I’ll be touring at the end of the year again. I’m working on new music that will be released before September. I have no record label so I kind of make it up as I go along. Many more weird instagram stories.

[American Idol Reunion] Ace Young and Wife, Melinda Doolittle and Mandisa Pose for BTS Theatre Photo

Today, American Idol alumni, Ace Young, Diana Degarmo Young, Melinda Doolittle and Mandisa, gathered backstage at a Franklin, TN theatre. Mandisa posted the happy photo on her Instagram along with some live performance clips of her fellow AI members.

Check out an excerpt from her message below:

“Went and saw @mdoolittle, @aceyoung & @dianadyoung in #Grease today! It was kind of like an @americanidol reunion! We’ve got 3 seasons represented in this picture. Who can name who was on what season?”

I hope Mandisa considers joining a live musical tour in the near future as well. Her vocals are out of this world, and it would be a joy to see her branch out in the acting world.
