This week’s guest is Nick Blaemire!
I’m especially excited to release this episode today because I’m chatting with Nick and Ethan Slater THIS Friday (August 6th), the day Edge of the World’s concept album is released on Broadway Records. Tune into bwaySHO YouTube and comment along in the chat!
Nick Blaemire is a writer and performer based in Brooklyn. At 23 years old, Nick wrote the Broadway one-night-sensation rock musical Glory Days, which has since had over 50 productions around the world — and will re-open in Japan in Fall 2021. He has written five other original musicals: A Little More Alive (commissioned by Broadway Across America, produced at Williamstown, Kansas City Rep, Barrington Stage, and is optioned as a feature film); Soon (premiered at Signature Theatre, upcoming at the Prima Theatre Fall 2021); Fallout (with Kyle Jarrow), Edge of the World (with Ethan Slater) and Space Dogs (with Van Hughes, upcoming Winter 2022 Off-Broadway at MCC Theatre). Nick has released three EPs of pop songs, all available on iTunes, Spotify, etc. As an actor, he most recently completed the National Tour of Falsettos as Mendel, recurred on Dash & Lily on Netflix, and was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for his performance as Jon in the Off-Broadway Revival of Tick, Tick…Boom!
Nick was in the original Broadway Cast of Cry-Baby and worked on the Joe Iconis hit The Black Suits.

Broadway SHOs are announcing their new opening dates. While we’re excited to see everyone get back to work, we must stay vigilant in our calls to make theatre a safe space for everyone involved. We need reports on how companies will be enacting anti-racist, anti-transphobia, anti-abelism and anti-abuse work. We can’t go back, we must move forward.
Get your vaccine, wear a mask, be safe and let’s take care of ourselves.
We’ll see you at the SHO
