Broadway’s winter-into-spring season is about to go full throttle. Adding to the excitement is the celebrity count (high) and the roster of productions (formidable). And so we begin…

Off-Broadway’s Top-Tier Trio: Emojiland, Forbidden Broadway, and Stomp

Fabulous Fall on Broadway: Welcoming Newcomers and Celebrating Classics
It happens every year: the fall portion of the new Broadway season comes in like a lamb and moves into winter like The Lion King.

It was with great excitement that I looked forward to my fourth BroadwayCon, organized by Anthony Rapp and Melissa Anelli, in New York City.
