Broadway Method Academy, the resident conservatory of Westport Country Playhouse, like so many other businesses, has been hit hard by the impact of COVID-19. The organization's musicals, classes, and special events have all been canceled or postponed for the foreseeable future.
"The effects of COVID-19 have been staggering on our community. So many students have lost out on special opportunities," said Connor Deane, BMA's Executive Director. "With the cancellation of productions, both at BMA and at their local schools, we wanted to put something together that would hopefully lift their spirits."
BMA teamed up with a variety of its Broadway artists (including me) and over forty of the academy's students, to present a virtual rendition of Jonathan Larson's 'Seasons of Love' from the Broadway musical, Rent. Other Broadway veterans include Steve Blanchard, Meredith Inglesby, and James Judy join Johnny Stellard, Jordan Tyson, Lawrence Cummings, Kyle Barisich, Julian Alvarez, Mariah Lyttle, Todd Buonopane, Nicholas Rodriguez, and Julie Kavanagh.
