Column 70 – Ask Bob Blume – Inside look at an ongoing theater rehearsal with guest Melissa Rakiro
Welcome everyone, it’s “Ask Bob Blume, A weekly visual column with a summary that discusses issues relevant to today’s entertainment industry and appears exclusively here on Times Square Chronicles. I am your host Bob Blume and president of Entertainment step forward, a talent management and production company located in New York and Los Angeles.
Today’s column is column # 70 and is unique in that, with the theater returning after a shutdown of almost a year and a half, I thought it would be interesting to have a preview a rehearsal of a live show now compared to what it was before. Covid.
With that in mind, my guest is Melissa Rakiro, currently in her first week of rehearsal for her role as Viola in the Nashville Shakespeare Festival production of Twelfth Night in Nashville, Tennessee.
The current conversation between me and Melissa needs to be experienced visually, so I am not writing a written summary of the content we are discussing.
For more on Melissa and the production she’s rehearsing, please see the links below.
Hope you enjoy the experience and wish you a good week.
