Welcome back, and happy New Year! Opening night is just around the corner, and The Count of Monte Cristo has been receiving a lot of press coverage. Many local and national sources are interested in this new musical making its premiere in America. Here are some of the videos and press photos from recent events. Hope you enjoy, and make sure you get your tickets soon!

Broadwayworld.com, a prestigious site for Broadway, theater, and live performance information, featured lead cast members Preston Yates (as Edmund Dantes) and Shae Robins (as Mercedes) on the home page singing this soulful and heart-wrenching duet.

BYU News has released numerous videos and photos on their page dedicated to The Count of Monte Cristo. A recent video showed the villains of the show, played by Taylor Morris, Matthew Krantz, and Cameron Smith, constructing a plot against Edmund Dantes.

Fox 13 News out of Salt Lake City came and did two TV spots, including an interview with Jeff Martin, the show’s creative producer.

They also had a clip highlighting Shae Robins in the emotional ballad “I Will Be There”.

The show was featured on the BYU School of Music’s website, with additional information regarding working with composer Frank Wildhorn. Additionally, BYU’s student newspaper the Universe ran an article about the show. More news resources and interviews will be coming in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!

A Swing for the Supernatural

If you will see, or have seen, the BYU Theatre production of Blithe Spirit this June, you may notice that there are two names in the cast list who are not given a character role, but simply the role of “Swing.” Just what is a swing, and why are they important for a production? As dramaturg, I interviewed our two swing actors to get their perspectives - and definitions - of this important role.
