Miranda Sings Live at the Embassy Theatre

I first became aware of Miranda Sings while I was studying opera at the University of Southern California. It was 2010 when a friend told me I just “had to” watch Miranda Sings’ California Gurls video: I remember feeling a mixture of amusement and horror while watching the video, and I was relieved to find out the truth behind the woman on the screen. Since 2010, Miranda Sings has earned international acclaim and will be performing in Fort Wayne’s very own Embassy Theater on September 15…

The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow, When Annie - The Musical Takes the Embassy Stage

It seems that so many of my favorite movies and musicals just so happen to be from the 70s and 80s. Blame it on my love of anything nostalgic, or the fact that the 70s and 80s were when my mom was growing up and never hesitated to show me her favorite flicks as I grew up myself. One of my favorites is Annie, the story of the little red-headed orphan who made everyone fall in love with her. You can fall in love with her too when Annie - The Musical comes to the Embassy Theatre on Friday, April 8…
