See It Now: Significant Other on Broadway

But once the lights at the Booth Theater dimmed and the show began, I was intrigued. Brought to us by playwright Joshua Harmon and directed by Trip Cullman, Significant Other became […]

Located in the heart of Times Square, it’s not ideally situated for a seasoned New Yorker who tends to avoid the crowded hub, but that’s no reason to miss out on the musical fare that tourists flock to. The retro 50’s themed diner attracts many out-of-towners to see […]

A Diamond in the Rough: Aladdin on Broadway

  An evening on Broadway is always a treat, but unfortunately some shows get more hype than others (we’re looking at you, Hamilton). Just because you can’t afford the sky high ticket prices for Hamilton is no reason to skip out on seeing a Broadway show altogether. And what shows have better music than Disney? (Trick question: none.) We recently […]

Interview with BroadwayHD’s Bonnie Comley and Stewart Lane

A few weeks ago I wrote a review about the new streaming service for theater fanatics called BroadwayHD. I commented on how I loved the way it streamed almost seamlessly, especially in a live stream, and how this would open the world for so many productions to get the love they deserve. Past productions, new productions, productions you may not […]

“Buried Child” and the Comfort of my Home HD

When you hear the word Broadway what comes to mind? Is it the thousands of streets named Broadway? Or is it the one region where theater magic happens at its “best”? The shining names, the big stars, the intricate sets with music to make you dance through the night. Going to Broadway is an experience, plain and simple. It is […]

Just Hanging at Sardi’s to Dish About Broadway

From flocking tourists to theater lovers, Times Square draws even the jaded New Yorker to pass through. Restaurants throughout the area offer various cuisines, but none has been as renowned as Sardi’s Restaurant. For over 90 years, Sardi’s has attracted Broadway elite that have become immortalized through the countless caricatures hanging across their walls. Actors and actresses are not the only […]

Relive Your Childhood with The Lion King on Broadway

Hakuna matata, what a wonderful phrase. We certainly had no worries when we had the opportunity to score tickets to see The Lion King on Broadway! The Disney production was spectacular from start to finish, entertaining both children and adults alike.

Get “On Your Feet!” or You’ll Be Missing Out

“Whether you like it or not, this is the face of America.” Those words resonated with me and took me back to the summer of 2003 when I was 19 years old and had just arrived to this country.

The Magic That is the Broadway Show “If/Then”

The last Broadway play I can remember seeing was Beauty & The Beast when I was around eleven years old. Yes, I had been to plays before then and I have certainly been to plays since, but unfortunately, the way my bank account is set up, none of these plays have been on Broadway. All I can remember is just […]
