  • Come From Away

    It's been nearly 20 years since the residents of Gander, Newfoundland welcomed thousands of foreign plane passengers to their small town and provided for them in the wake of September 11, 2001. It's been 10 years since writers (and real-life couple) David Hein and Irene Sankoff traveled to Gander to interview the town's locals about that experience, gathering the source material for what would become Come From Away. It's been nearly five years since the musical opened on Broadway, making it the...

    Noma Dumezweni is a little bit magical. Sure, she's playing Hermione Granger, that type-A witch who is the literary heroine of women everywhere, in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, but Dumezweni herself possesses a certain je ne sais quoi. Her co-star Jamie Parker, who plays the titular boy who lived, likens her to a Patronus (that positive projection of a person's inner hope and love). When asked what type of magic she'd love to wield, Dumezweni said she simply wants the power to calm...

  • By Matt ChislingI can admit that Jennifer Nettles has blown me away three times in my life. The first moment? When I sat in the audience while she took to the stage of the Ambassador Theatre for a gutsy, whimsical turn as Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway. The second? When I sat in a sold-out Nashville arena while her Grammy Award-winning band, Sugarland, proudly declared that everyone — regardless of race, gender, or sexuality — were welcome and loved at their shows. The third moment came just...
