Broadway’s Spencer Liff Gives an Inside Look at Broadway Dreams in Russia
Second time in Moscow with Broadway Dreams and finding my way to the theater in the morning is a little easier.
Loving the food here in Moscow! Huge healthy breakfast to fuel an action packed day.
Checking out the beautiful MDM theater, the Stage Entertainment Russia house where we will rehearse and perform our show over the next 2 weeks.
First round of dance auditions. Hundreds of incredibly talented Russian dancers to narrow down and only 2 hours on the schedule to get it done!
After my technical combo, Ari Groover teaches a hip hop routine. We snapped this pic with the dancers that made it through that round.
Next up, the first round of principal singer auditions. Looking for our leads and seeing some of the top star talents from Russia's equivalent to Broadway. At the table with me, Annette Tanner (co-producer), Lynne Shankel (music director), Polina Bogacheva, and Alla Gazizova (Stage Entertainment Russia).
Coffee break at Starbucks, something looks different ...?
Dance may be the international language, but explaining the exact style I'm looking for is very tricky when communicating through an interpreter.
Dancer callbacks later in the day. Starting to get an idea of who I'm going to cast.
