Broadway on the Moscow River

On Monday Broadway hopefuls and fans can get the real scoop on singing and dancing their way to stardom.

Amateur dramatists and musical fans will have a chance to hear advice and encouragement from Broadway directors, choreographers and actors this Monday.

Broadway Dreams, a show featuring a mash-up of the world's favorite Broadway hits, is coming to Moscow. The live performance will be accompanied by a 10-day program of workshops, including a star-studded open lecture to kick-start the project.

The open lecture, entitled "Broadway. Myths and Facts" has been organized by non-profit educational program the Broadway Dreams Foundation (BDF). BDF helps young artists to develop their skills, regardless of their financial circumstances, by offering grants and support to talented students.

The lecture will be conducted in English with Russian interpretation. Speakers include Olivier-nominated theater director Arima Stafford and music director Varga Balint, who has worked on hit productions like "West Side Story" and "Oliver!"

Other speakers include Spencer Liff, winner of the Fred Astaire Award for Best Dancer in 2008, "Hairspray" star Ryan Redmond and Matthew Scott, winner of the Barrymore Award for best actor for his performance in the musical "Light in the Piazza."

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
