In a recent New York Times article, the show host was described as: “Wide-eyed and with boundless energy, Rew resembles a glam-rock Vargas pin-up. Not one to interview her subjects with measured indifference, she has a knack for getting them to admit their follies, true loves, and addictions.”
ReW says, “We aim to be the place where artists and activists come when they want to feel welcome. Every show is inspiration magnified.”
The “ReW & WhO” show includes interviews, conversation and performances, live and intimate; generating an atmosphere more like a party than a television show.
Also the Brooklyn edition is shot one Friday a month at the Branded Saloon
603 Vanderbilt Ave.(corner of Bergen}, 4-6pm
