Revue shows can be tricky, but James Bryson, Director of James Productions, believes he has a winner on his hands with this season’s Just Broadway!
Playing in the brand new Anvil Centre in New Westminster, Just Broadway! will feature some of the Great White Way’s biggest hits, including the director’s favourite, “This is the Moment” from Jekyll and Hyde.
We caught up with the busy Mr. Bryson just long enough to ask him five questions about his upcoming show in this week’s #FridayFive:
[dropcap]1[/dropcap]How does it feel to be the first production at the Anvil Centre?
Absolutely exciting! We want to establish the Anvil Centre as a fine venue for performances. Maybe it will become our home theatre!
[dropcap]2[/dropcap]Will the new space at the Anvil Centre affect the production? Change it from past years?
Just that the location is new for us. Previous shows have been in the Terry Fox Theatre in Port Coquitlam. We are excited to be a little more central in the ‘Vancouver’ musical theatre scene.
[dropcap]3[/dropcap]You have such incredible local talents such as Steve Maddock, Tracy Neff, and Jennifer Hayes. How would you describe your cast?
Fabulous! They are energetic and passionate about what they do – and they’re exceptional performers. I am having a lot of serious fun working with this highly talented cast.
[dropcap]4[/dropcap]Will there be any surprises?
Yes! But if I told you what they were, there wouldn’t be any surprises, would there?
[dropcap]5[/dropcap]What’s the number one thing you want audiences to know about Just Broadway?
Our company is celebrating 15 years of excellent musical showcases. This show will be a delight for our audience.
Just Broadway! plays the Anvil Centre (777 Columbia St, New Westminster) on November 20-22. Visit http://http://anvilcentre.com for tickets and information.
