Re: “More local boys (and girls) done good

And then there's East Bloomfield's gift to the gay porn world, the legendary Casey Donovan…

Re: “More local boys (and girls) done good

I'm not sure these individuals performed before leaving Rochester, but these names quickly came to my mind:

Peter Breck - Big Valley TV show
Foster Brooks - comedian
Louise Brooks - silent film star
Renee Flemming - does opera count as theater?
Robert Forester -Medium Cool (acad. award nomination for supporting actor)
John Lithgow - 2 x supporting actor nominee; 3rd Rock From the Sun
Hugh O'Brien - Wyatt Earp tv series

Wayne Barker, a Bloomfield High School graduate (1980 maybe?) was nominated for a TONY award for composing Peter & the Starcatcher.

Re: “Interview: Local performer Evan Harrington returns to Rochester in "Once"

Several young performers have been on national touring shows. Alizabeth York (Gananda) was in The Music Man; Colin Nims (Gananda) was in Oliver; Tim Mitchum (Rochester) was in Lion King; Clay Thompson (Gananda) was in several tours and is in Matilda on Broadway. There are many many others too!!
- John Barthelmes (who had the privledge of working with each of those amazing performers)

I just saw Rob Campbell, Penfield High School Class of 1987, in the Broadway show ALL THE WAY. He plays George Wallace. Amazing actor and guy!

Re: “More local boys (and girls) done good

Actress Hudson Leick (then known as Heidi Leick) wasn't born in Rochester but did attended high school at Brighton High (Class of '87). She went on to substantial success, mostly in television, as Callisto on Xena. As well as roles on Melrose Place, other popular series, and some tv movies . She also has a handful of film credits.

A huge 'Atta Boy' to Evan for not only following a dream but being a success at it. I just wish I lived a little closer to Rochester so I could see this show. Plus, it would be an opportunity to see an old high school friend, his father, Ken.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 4: “SHADE! The Rusical”

Eric, I love your reviews! I'm out in Seattle and we watch the show every week at the Century Ballroom with Ben DeLa Creme, our local stage and drag luminaries, and sometimes Jinkx Monsoon! Thanks for covering both the show in such depth and your experience at the viewing parties with Darienne Lake. Last year Jinkx and Ben were on hand at the parties for Season 5. Hearing the gossip during commercials is my favorite thing...I wonder what each queen is saying all over the country on Monday nights!

Thank you for such lively reviews and recaps. I read four or five every Tuesday but yours is the most fun. I'm surprised there are so few great recaps online and I'm inspired by you to start my own mid-season!

Sincerely from your fan,
