  • Although it takes place more than a decade ago, Come From Away could not be more relevant to the struggles and stories circulating in our world today.

  • Ramin Karimloo

    By Ramin KarimlooI'm a bit of a black sheep in the theatre community. I've still never seen The Wizard of Oz or The Sound of Music. I've never heard Judy Garland sing. I don't know what Liza Minnelli sounds like. I love what I do, but my path here was unconventional. My first musical was The Phantom of the Opera.

    Spoilers for Dear Evan Hansen will appear below.You'll have to excuse my bringing up math so early in our time together — especially because, as a creative type, it's my main enemy and perhaps functionally in direct opposition to the topic we're here to discuss. Nevertheless, in my years of research, it's become clear that being a Theatre Kid is 25 percent buying merch, 25 percent waiting outside (stage) doors, 25 percent belting out lyrics when we hear any word or phrase that even vaguely...

  • Lin-Manuel Miranda

However, Miranda is seeing his legacy cement itself right before his — and the world's — very eyes.Although Hamilton made Miranda a household name, he's been winning awards since 2008 with his first hit musical, In the Heights. After breaking musical theatre boundaries and Tony Awards records with Hamilton, he's ventured into film work. Even...

  • Moulin Rouge! The Musical

    Turn on the Top 40 radio or your throwback rock playlist, and you might just hear... showtunes?

But now, there's a whole host of Broadway shows that feature pop music, from classic Motown tunes to '80s and '90s hits to chart-toppers from the last decade. Whether you're an original cast album fan looking for something different or a pop music junkie that's...

Her role as a widowed mother who grows marijuana to support her family (a one-woman hustle that balloons into a larger enterprise) earned her a Golden Globe Award and an Emmy Award. But if you only know Parker from Weeds, you might not know her full range: In her 30-plus-year career, much of which she's built on stage, she's proved her chops for comedy, drama, and everything in between.Parker has even more...
