    OTG: Gary Flannery - His Dance … His Way

    in Entertainment

    Debbie Barth, Linda J Alexander, and Lynn Bensy are honored to have Gary Flannery join us and take center stage, November 12, 2015! Gary was Bob Fosse’s LEAD dancer on Broadway in “PIPPIN” and “DANCIN.” He was also a Principal Dancer in the classic feature film “ALL THAT JAZZ,” where he can be seen performing the male adagio in the famous Airotica number!

    You will be spellbound with his stories of "the big stage", the people (like ... Shirley MacLaine, with whom he toured for three years) ... the good, the bad ... and the downright ugly!! 

    Bob Fosse nicknamed Gary the “Bull,“ for the shear non-stop, dance-till-you-drop attitude he took into rehearsals as well as performances.  Fred Astaire commented after seeing Gary in Dancin’ in 1979: “It was one of the greatest dance performances he had ever seen!” 


    For many years Mr. Flannery was the artistic director of his own dance company. He still directs and Choreographs, writes plays, musicals and revues, and performs today. Gary Flannery was also a Pennsylvania Governor’s Award winner for his devoted teaching and appearances with his Dancers Company based out of Bucks County in 1980.


    Presently Gary is working hard on finishing his 25 years of work on the multi-level project “The Great American Revue” with books, documentaries and revivals being planned.

    Critics Rant and Rave about Hugh Jackman

    in Movies

    Noted film critics and avid fans rant and rave about the movies of Hugh Jackman.  Former co-host Jazz Shaw and award-winning blogger Fausta Rodriguez share their reactions to films through 2009, followed by a discussion of movies released after 2009 by film historian James Colt Harrison and entertainment journalist Diana Saenger. Although probably known best for his Wolverine role in the X-Men movies, this talented Australian actor boasts numerous films and TV shows to his credit, plus he’s also garnered acclaim for his outstanding performances in stage musicals, even winning a Tony for The Boy from Oz. And don’t forget Jackman’s Emmy -- which he earned for his entertaining turn as host of the Tony Awards. Jackman won additional fans with his rousing stint as host of the Academy Awards in 2009. An Oscar nomination and Golden Globe win for his emotional portrayal of Jean Valjean in Les Misérables have served to increase his popularity. Jackman’s latest role is Blackbeard in Pan, released on October 9, 2015.
