Happy Groundhog Day!
Today the world’s eyes turn to a small town in Pennsylvania as America’s most famous marmot steps out of his burrow for the only day of work he’ll have all year (a pretty sweet gig).
Of course the little guy’s job has gotten decidedly more difficult as climate change has reared its ugly head, but today is not about the difficulty of the job (or the reality that is climate change). Today is about tradition and, of course, the “famed prognostication” of the world’s favorite furry meteorologist. Read the rest of this entry
Crusaders, we made it! It’s Thursday (aka Friday Eve)! I think we can all agree that it’s been a rough couple of days here…without getting into details because I just can’t.
So today I thought it’d be nice to take a moment to breathe away from the news cycle and catch up on some of the more delightful highlights of the week. Because believe it or not, good things have happened this week. Let’s take a moment to remember and cherish them… Read the rest of this entry
Happy Monday! Sorry, if that’s too much enthusiasm. I’m still coming down off of a Tony Awards high.
For those of you who chose the Stanley Cup (congrats, Penguins!) or other Sunday evening entertainment over the step-ball-change of Broadway, you missed some great performances but very few upsets. As expected, “Dear Evan Hansen,” did quite well. While not everyone got to use their acceptance speech, the night as a whole served as a reminder that the creative spirit is alive and well on Broadway.
Whether last night’s results have put some pep in your step, or you’re singing the Broadway blues this Monday, I’ve got the perfect Musical Monday Motivation cure. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy some toe-tapping Tony Awards’ inspiration. Read the rest of this entry
Happy Tony Sunday! Before we get into the predictions of the day, we wanted to take just a moment to echo a sentiment shared earlier this week. As lifelong fans of the theater, we’ve heard more than a few people express, in a variety of ways, the belief that once you see a Broadway show, other theater feels smaller.
While there’s definitely something special about a Broadway show, Tony Sunday feels like a good day to remember, the Great White Way does not have a monopoly on excellent theater. Great theater is closer than you think, so get out there and see a show!
That being said, it’s Tony Sunday which means today is all about Broadway. So, without further ado here are our picks for this year’s Tony Awards. Read the rest of this entry
As we head into Tony’s weekend, it’s time to take a serious look at this year’s nominees.
So today we’re diving into the details with a Tony Awards #FlashbackFriday, featuring the 2017 nominated revivals.
There’s never any shortage of nostalgia on Broadway (the Phantom knows what I’m talking about), and that sentiment soars as beloved classics return (sometimes over and over again) to the Great White Way. So, without further ado, let’s step back into some old favorites with this year’s musical and play revivals. Read the rest of this entry
