Revelation Reverie

What Up Team Broadway Warm-Up! It’s been a wild month since we last connected. I’m going to jump right into My Three Reveries because I’m that excited to share with you!

42nd St PicACTOR REVERIE: Yesterday was a total creative play day. By 7:15am, I was on the set of Good Morning America, presenting a workout called “Hard Knocks” that launches nationally at Crunch Gyms next week. I love live TV because you have to be so frickin’ present to roll with whatever changes pop up. Staying in the moment is key to making it all happen the way producers, PR folks, hosts, live audience and your support team want it to. Right after that, I got to shoot an industrial/in-house corporate commercial where I had to sing lines from the 42nd Street song “The Lullaby of Broadway” over and over and over again. IT WAS SO FUN! And in between takes, I’d do BW exercises straight from the DVD to stay present and ready. Loved having access to something clear to do to keep my voice take-after-take ready.

Blue Ball PicFIT DUDE REVERIE: Then right after we wrapped the industrial – I got to hang with Charissa Hogeland, the Dance Captain from Heathers the Musical and dance fitness expert Carol Johnson to learn choreography for a very special Musical Theatre Dance Fitness Class we are putting together for Crunch, featuring Heathers songs! I get to choreography to “My Dead Gay Son” and “Blue” (as in one’s balls). I know . . . so very. Class is in June for 4 weeks – Tuesdays @ 5:45pm at Crunch, 23rd Street in Chelsea. Wanna come boogie down with us theatre style – email me at marcsm@me.com and I’ll get you in as my guest. “You make my balls feel so blue.” My new fave line from the show.

Wedding Shot-1ADVENTURE REVERIE: I got married 5 days ago. How’s that for an adventure? Still on a high from our wedding day and I can feel that this vibe is going to be around for a super long time . . .

What Up. I love me some Broadway Warm-Up. Huge fan. Honored I got to be a part of making the DVD. And super stoked to be contributing right here, right now to the BW Blog. Here’s how it’s gonna go down. I’m going to offer three thoughts (I’ll call them reveries) and three photos to support them. They will be in the zone of acting, fitness and adventure. And by adventure I mean living life large, trying new things, being well traveled, chowing down and guzzling tasty drinks. Let’s do this . . .

ImageACTOR REVERIE: I’ve got the coolest Acting Mentor – Roz Coleman Williams. She hits me hard with pearls of wisdom (and yet can crack me up two seconds later). In class yesterday she said this about “the Work” – the stuff we put out there to the world – “The key to growth is to stand in the strength of your own choices. True artistry is being your own gage. Walk in the strength of your own individual artistry.” Walk strong my artist friends, walk like a bad ass and work.

 

Wimpy Photo-2FIT DUDE REVERIE: I’m the National Director of Group Fitness for Crunch Gyms so I get a lot of questions about getting in shape. Like it or not, it’s a fact that what we look like is a major factor in how we are cast. So,what’s your body type and what would you likely be cast as? If you’re happy with your answers – awesome. You’re on the right track. Go get seen and go book work. But if you want to say, play an action hero in Avengers but have a physique more like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, then get thee into an exercise routine – pronto. Don’t think about it – just do something physical. Got a Crunch Gym in your city? Email me at marcsm@me.com and I’ll hook you up with a 5 day guest pass to jump start your routine.

Chariot photoADVENTURE REVERIE: I love wine. I love wine chilled – even my reds. I discovered this keep the wine cool gadget called – The Corkcicle. #protectcool. Google it. And use it. With what you say? How about a great red under $10? Chariot at Trader Joe’s. So tasty – we’re serving cases of it at our wedding

Until next time. See you on the dance floor of life.
