Welcome! Oscar Wilde once said, “The stage is not merely the meeting place of all the arts, but is also the return of art to life.” Welcome to our new stage... and the new life of Encore! For the past five months, the Encore team has worked tirelessly behind the curtain to create and curate our new look and feel alongside our fabulous director, Debbi Shapiro, and her amazing cast of brand ambassadors at HSP Marketing. Our goal? To become the defining voice of performing arts in Atlanta. We offer to you, the Atlanta arts patron, a cleaner, crisper, more updated, more relevant version of our previous self – one that is clearly defined and recognizable from afar, one that has a well-defined stage presence. Our insides have changed, too. No longer will we perform, editorially, in topics outside of the arts. Readers will now find photos and features focused exclusively on celebrating and chronicling the performing arts, and will enjoy arts-focused content on our newly redesigned website. Across all platforms, Encore is committed to bringing quality content to Atlanta’s arts patrons – from breaking news to backstage stories, and from season announcements to red carpet excitement. As this new Encore comes to life, we continue to be so grateful to our partners around town, without whom we couldn’t perform at all: The Fox Theatre, Woodruff Arts Center, Alliance Theatre, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, Atlanta Ballet, The Atlanta Opera, Rialto Center for the Arts and Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center. So please join us as we allow our former Encore to take a bow – and help us raise the curtain on the new and improved Encore! We hope you enjoy it – and we hope you enjoy the show!

THE THEATRE NERD’S GUIDE TO

PRIDE ON BROADWAY STORY BY

SALLY HENRY

O

ver the years, the Broadway community has often seen theatre artists coming together to advocate a common cause. A recurring objective of this advocacy has been to promote the acceptance and visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) people through the Pride movement. While many may know expressions of Pride as marches or parades, the movement is felt in theatre as a celebration of and dedication to relentless individuality. Pride’s place in theatre has always required uncompromising advocacy. These efforts have raised the art of theatre to new heights and lead to increased visibility of LGBT actors, characters, and story lines. These stories celebrate the confidence and self-belief that all theatre artists must embody, that which tells them to keep creating and keep embracing who they are day after day. It’s the inner guiding light that says “My perspective is valuable, and if you don’t think so now, you will one day.” In honor of Atlanta’s own Pride celebrations, Encore is highlighting five must-know musicals that significantly increased visibility of LGBT stories on Broadway.

‘I am what I am!’ LA CAGE AUX FOLLES

La Cage aux Folles (1983) The best way to start a Pride on Broadway tribute has to be with the show that first loudly and proudly proclaimed, “I am what I am.” From Hello, Dolly! songwriter Jerry Herman, La Cage not only brought back the traditional Broadway sound, but proved that drag queens could have a presence on the Broadway stage as main characters rather than gimmicks or showpieces. “[La Cage aux Folles] changed the way the business side of Broadway perceived a ‘gay themed’ musical and how it could generate financial success,” says Jerry Mitchell, Tony Award-winning director/ choreographer of Kinky Boots and the Alliance Theatre’s recent Becoming Nancy. In fact, Mitchell won his first Tony Award for Best Choreography for the 2004 revival of La Cage aux Folles. As Herman put it in his 1984 Tony Award acceptance speech for Best Original Score, presented by Larry

10 | encore Kert, “There’s been a rumor around for a couple of years that the simple, hummable showtune was no longer welcome on Broadway. Well, it’s alive and well at the Palace!” Out Front Theatre Company, Atlanta’s only LGBTQIA+ theatre, is producing La Cage this month, and director Paul Conroy says the piece at its core is simply about love. “When I say ‘love,’ I mean it in all senses of the word: romantic love, love of family, love of community, and most importantly love of self. La Cage was a seismic shift in musical theatre when it premiered because it openly and honestly looked at a loving same sex relationship and non-traditional family structure.”

Rent (1996) Rent is the ultimate ode to New York artists in the 1990s. With a score that rocked Broadway upon debut, Rent championed a cast of diverse characters and gave a voice to the heart-wrenching impact of the AIDS crisis on the Broadway community. During the original production, cast members would slip in a nightly tribute to friends struggling with AIDS by giving their names to the minor characters in the “Life Support” scene, serving as a personal reminder of why they were proud to tell Rent’s important story.

Kinky Boots (2013) Continuing the Pride path pioneered by La Cage aux Folles, Kinky Boots tells the story of a shoe manufacturer who teams up with Lola, a drag queen, to save his family’s business with a revolutionary line of – what else? – high heels. Jerry Mitchell directed and choreographed this piece to six Tony Award wins including Best Choreography and Best Score for Cyndi Lauper. In true Pride fashion, Kinky Boots celebrates the power of diversity and the strength that interpersonal differences can bring. Mitchell says

his work on Kinky Boots and other Pride-centered shows have taught him that representation really matters, and putting these works on stage matters. “The more we share our stories, the more we get to share our stories,” Mitchell says. “There is a lot of truth in the finale lyric of Kinky Boots, ‘You change the world when you change your mind.’”

The Prom (2019) One of this year’s Best Musical Tony Award nominees made its world premiere at Atlanta’s own Alliance Theatre in 2016. The Prom is a big, beautiful lovefest with lots of heart and glitter. The musical centers around Emma Nolan, who experiences backlash when she wants to take her girlfriend to prom. With the help of some pushy yet winsome out-of-work Broadway stars, Emma spoiler alert - sees this dream come true. The Prom speaks to an experience with which many high schoolers can identify: feeling met with contempt when simply wanting to be themselves.

Mitchell says he feels most proud when his work impacts not just people directly affiliated with the theatre industry, but those outside of it. “I am most proud when I receive notes of thanks from individuals outside of the business,” the artist shares. “Real people from real walks of life - straight, gay, fluid - who are responding to messages and the feelings of being counted. Those voices matter and continue to fuel my work.” To Conroy, Pride is all about people listening and learning together: “Seeing people come together in ways that they haven’t before and being willing to listen and learn from others that do not identify in the same way that they do is the most hopeful thing possible.”

‘True Pride’ A major coming together of the theatre industry, one that stretches beyond the bounds of the stage, is Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA), an organization that hosts multiple events and fundraisers through the year to support AIDSrelated causes. A favorite of these events each year is BroadwayBares, a burlesque show featuring Broadway’s best, which was started in 1992 by Jerry Mitchell himself. By raising over $300 million in generous donations from the American theatre community, BC/EFA has been able to provide emergency health care and financial assistance to people across the country since 1988. Whether on stage or in action, the Pride movement is near to the essential spirit of the theatre community: helping others, supporting artists, and telling important stories. Ultimately, Conroy says, the movement is all about people listening and learning together: “The empathy of the human spirit and the desire to be accepted should lead to acceptance of others, and that is what I call true Pride.”

Q&A WITH SUSAN HILFERTY The Tony Award winner for Best Costume Design discusses her process for creating costumes for Wicked STORY & PHOTOS COURTESY OF

Wicked North American Tour

How did you approach the task of designing Wicked’s costumes? Susan Hilferty: I knew I was inventing a world, a parallel universe you’d recognize but at the same time was completely distorted. I looked at the original illustrations for the ‘Wizard of Oz’ books – which is where the Edwardian influence comes from – but with a contemporary eye. The silhouette is twisted, asymmetrical. The idea was to distort the human figure, but in a high-fashion kind of way. The way the animals looked is also invented: the monkey-skins, faces, tails, the goats. The 1939 movie didn’t help: that was a ’20s world, and nothing made sense to this story. How would you describe the overall look of the costumes? SH: “Twisted Edwardian.” I found what I was doing was almost designing each idea twice; I had an idea that was straight, and then I had to transform it. In some cases I was acting like a fashion designer, much like Vivienne Westwood or Alexander McQueen, who will look at another time period and then exaggerate it and make it their own.

What aspects of the show did you keep in mind while bringing your costumes to life? SH: My goal was to create a third world, a world that we considered to be a parallel universe. It’s a world where animals can talk, so we know it’s not our world. It’s a world that deals with a kind of inventiveness, things that we might call magic. The boundaries of the world are different than anything we know or are familiar with, but at the same time, the issues for the people of this world of Oz are in many cases the same kind of issues we deal with. So I knew it had to be something that was of the imagination but in some ways had to thread back to things that we knew.

Is there any significance to the white and blue school colors of Shiz University? SH: What I was trying to get at the end was an icon for each of the witches, where they become specifically representative: Glinda for goodness and Elphaba for evil. By using blue and white as the school colors, I was able to have Elphaba all in blue, and Glinda all in white. The goal was to make the two women be the most outstanding thing in every world they entered. Is it true that you reserve your highest praise for lighting designer Ken Posner? SH: I gave him the biggest challenge you can give a lighting designer: two leading ladies, onstage together for most of the show, and standing next to each other for most of the show; one dark girl with black hair, green skin, dark clothes, and a hat with a brim on it, standing next to a blonde in white shiny clothes, white skin, no hat. That’s hard. That’s the classic. Kenny was brilliant about it and made it balanced so you never knew it was an issue.

THE FOX THEATRE

1. Please arrive early. Latecomers may not be seated until intermission. 2. Take care of personal needs (water, restroom use) before the performance begins. 3. Please silence or turn off all electronic devices, including cellphones, beepers and watch alarms. We encourage you to share your experience via social media but please refrain from doing so or texting during performances. The glow from your device is distracting. 4. Most shows do not allow photography of any kind. Flash photography inside the theater is never allowed. It distracts those around you and endangers the performers. 5. The overture is part of the performance. Please cease talking at this point. 6. Dear lovebirds, when you lean your heads together, you block the view of those behind you. Please consider those seated behind you when choosing whether to wear a hat or what hairstyle you choose.

34 | encore FOX FUN FACTS

FOX IN A BOX The Fox Theatre’s community engagement programs, like Fox in a Box, support the organization’s mission to preserve and share the Fox Theatre. Fox in a Box is an interactive school exhibit that intersects important events in the Fox Theatre’s timeline with key classroom lessons, from American history and the Civil Rights Movement to economics and the importance of communities. Elementary students are challenged to think about how communities come together to share an experience and to protect what’s important to them. At the end of the experience, students complete some fun timeline, story writing, and creative drawing activities and have a class picture taken on the photo wall. In the 2018-2019 school year, Fox in a Box served more than 8,000 students in over 37 schools throughout metro-Atlanta. Since launching in December 2014, nearly 29,800 participants have experienced Fox in a Box and the program is excited to continue sharing the Fox’s story with Atlanta’s children!

SUZANNA STAPLER SQUILLISTRATE

36 | encore ABOUT THE ARTIST

I’ve approached life with a sketchbook in hand for as long as I can remember. Drawing (and poetry!) provides the most natural way for me to connect with an environment and express ideas, typically with a fondness for whimsy and light-handed realism. Primarily a self-taught artist, I studied Entrepreneurship at Belmont University, gaining business foundations and a passion for launching ventures. The stories of enterprising mentors and peers inspire me greatly, and I love jumping into the process of bringing visions to life. This particular project recalled many wonder-filled memories of childhood visits to the Fox, like watching Cats as an amazed five-year-old! Although I’m based in Nashville these days, it’s always a gift to return to my Georgia roots, and I’m endlessly thankful for the support of family and friends on this weirdly wonderful journey.

JORDAN KEYON MONCRIEF “Be kind. Choose joy.” IG: @jordankeyon Jordan Keyon Moncrief is a teacher, choreographer, and performer who resides in Atlanta and works for Eurotard Dancewear. Jordan choreographed Out Front Theatre Company’s upcoming production of La Cage aux Folles. Favorite role/show of your career so far? A Chorus Line. Firstly, it is a dancer’s dream show and I got to play Larry, which I loved. It was also significant to me because it was my return to musical theatre after being solely dance-focused in my career. So it will always be a special show to me. Favorite thing about being part of the Atlanta arts community? Exactly that, it’s a community. Some of my best friends, lifelong friends, have been made in the 20 years

that I’ve been performing in Atlanta. Some of the most creative, inspiring, and kind artists. I’m very fortunate to be a part of this thriving community. What keeps you going amid auditions, rejection, and countless hours of hard work? I am very selective about the projects that I choose, so I think my passion for the craft and feeling like I have a voice to contribute to the projects that I choose keeps me motivated and excited.

DEAR HIV, WE DIDN’T GIVE UP. XOXO, SCIENCE There is no cure, but science is still in the battle against HIV. Today’s HIV treatments taken every day as prescribed can help you get to and stay undetectable. That means the amount of virus is so low it can’t be measured by lab tests. Research shows that staying undetectable means there’s effectively no risk of transmitting HIV through sex. Ask your healthcare provider about HIV and treatment options.
