Fun Theater Things to Do in Manhattan

Going out in New York City and enjoying theater doesn’t always have to mean going to a Broadway show.  You might be looking for a place to cool down during all this hot weather.  Or maybe you want a fun night out on the town with some friends.  Whatever your reason for heading out, if…

Upcoming Shows To Keep an Eye Out For

Once on this Island is Theater Magic

Look no further for your next Caribbean vacation because Once on this Island is making a splash on Broadway.  Although to be fair, the lives of some of the characters in the show are far from what most would call a vacation.  Though the stage at the very beginning of the show is a picture of…

Here’s to the Losers: Broadway’s Biggest Night

Last week’s Tony Awards ceremony appropriately began with an ode to the losers, and with The Band’s Visit sweeping pretty much every category, there were quite a few of those.  Some viewers found this upsetting, while others believed the awards were all well-deserved.  Either way, it was a beautiful and fun-filled ceremony with a few surprises….

2018 Tony Predictions

It’s that time of year again!  Broadway’s biggest night is here and the predictions are rolling in.  This was an interesting year for nominations.  From shows that got snubbed to Spongebob Squarepants being an unexpected smash hit, this year has not been short on surprises, nor has it been short on talent.  While I loved all…

Reasons To Love Spongebob Squarepants the Musical

The world needs a Spongebob musical.  Tina Landau, the musical’s director, probably knew how ridiculous she sounded to some people when she first said that, but time and time again, she is being proven right.  I saw Spongebob Squarepants the musical, and it was better than anything I could imagine.  I’m sure the question a…

Like This? Try This (Book Edition)

Anyone who knows me knows that the one thing I love just as much as musicals are books.  One thing that I love to do is try to get more people excited about reading, and I also love seeing people get excited about musicals, so here’s a list of recommended books paired with musicals to…

My Rent Live Dream Cast

Fox’s live production of Rent more than a year away, but that doesn’t mean that Rent fans aren’t already coming up with people they would love to see star in their beloved musical.   With that being said, here is everyone I’d like to see in the show and why: Mark: Ethan Slater  After seeing videos of this wonderful man…

Beyond the Comfort Zone

     For Broadway fans, this year might be better known as the year of Oak, Mandy and the Great Controversy of 2017.  For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, last month, Broadway’s Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 came under fire for some racial controversy when the current…

Shows I’m Excited About

After the Tony Awards a couple of weeks ago, it’s out with the old and in with the new, Broadway shows, that is.  The new season for Broadway has officially begun!  Here are some of Broadway’s new and upcoming shows that I can’t wait to see. Once On This Island This show should be fun…

Exceeding Expectations: My Tonys Reaction

This year’s show for me was, in some ways, exactly what I expected, and in other ways, not at all what I expected.  This especially had to do with the host.  Kevin Spacey was not the Tonys’ first choice, and he certainly wasn’t my first choice.  However, I was really pleasantly surprised that he did…

The Tony’s are Tomorrow!

The Tony Awards are coming upon us very soon (TOMORROW!), so with that, I would like to give everyone my predictions and preferences (for the musicals anyway).   Best Orchestrations: Bill Eiliott and Greg Anthony Rassen, Bandstand Larry Hochman, Hello Dolly Alex Lacamoire, Dear Evan Hansen Dave Malloy, Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 Who I think…
