filmmmaker extraordinaire celebrates Anne Brown on Broadway....

On a pretty amazing day this past February, filmmaker Nicole Franklin took a firm step on Broadway upon entering the Richard Rodgers Theater where the musical Porgy & Bess is playing.

With her ‘Gershwin & Bess‘ DVDs in tow, my good friend celebrated a monumental day in her career, in her life for on that day she brought Anne Brown back to Broadway.

To see a talented friend reaching a milestone, someone who continually inspires all of us to move forward in this crazy world of filmmaking, well, it is truly a powerful experience that needs to be shared.

Nicole has been working on her documentary, Meet Bess, for years, and she recently received a purchase order from the theater to sell her short version of her documentary, Gershwin & Bess, in the lobby.

I invite you all to check out Nicole and help spread the word of her DVDs so she can complete her full-length documentary in honor of the late Anne Brown who inspired the role of Bess—she was in the original production of the opera of Porgy & Bess in 1935. Of course, we all hear that Audra McDonald is breathtaking in her rendition. I’ve been her fan since Private Practice. Yes, hard work and patience do pay off…..
