This week on The Last Hurrah: ACTUALLY Saying Goodbye to Nicky Costanza

DON’T MISS Free Comedy at the Maryland Ensemble Theatre this Sunday at 7pm

Last week’s Hurrah was greeted with a very light crowd of old friends, so we took the select few who came out to dinner. It simply would not have been a fitting farewell for one of New Jersey’s greatest comics, Nicky Costanza. For a couple of bucks we talked him into staying in Frederick for one more weekend. So come on out to The Last Hurrah as say goodbye to this great comedian/ice cream reviewer on Sunday August 28th at 7pm.

Deaf Awakening goes to Broadway with Joshua Castille

On this very special episode of The Last Hurrah, we sat down with delightful Joshua Castille who is currently making the leap from Deaf West’s production of Spring Awakening to Broadway! We learned about his origin story of discovering theatre via a shower curtain and how he and Christine McQuaid became fast friends. We discuss what goes into making a production of Spring Awakening that’s accessible to both the hearing and the deaf and just how tight the show’s ensemble must be to pull it off.
