  • The Lehman Trilogy

    The story of the Lehman Brothers begins and ends in New York City. Though the original trio — Henry, Emanuel, and Mayer Lehman — first built their business in the South, New York was where they first stepped foot when they immigrated from Bavaria, Germany, and New York was also where their business ultimately crumbled.But over the course of more than a century, the Lehmans and their descendants built their lives and businesses in the Big Apple, and that story is told in Stefano Massini and Ben...

  • David Morse

    Content warning: How I Learned to Drive deals with sexual abuse and pedophilia, and these issues are discussed in this article."It's a very simple play in the way it's told, and it really draws you into a very complicated, deep relationship," says actor David Morse of How I Learned to Drive. Nearly 25 years after Paula Vogel's play premiered off Broadway and won the Pulitzer Prize, the show is making its Broadway debut with its original stars at the wheel: Mary-Louise Parker and Morse, with...

  • Chicago

    Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly may sing that "nothing stays — in 50 years or so, it's gonna change, you know," but 25 years into the musical's Broadway revival, Chicago has stayed around pretty darn long and shows no signs of stopping. In fact, Chicago and some of the show's cast members hold records for their longevity. There's a Guinness World Record-holding actor who earned her prize as part of Chicago — not to mention multiple other actors who've simply stayed on for years and years. And with...

  • Hangmen

    If you hang around the Theatre District regularly, you've probably noticed the (appropriately) bright yellow marquee on the Golden Theatre advertising Martin McDonagh's Hangmen. The dark comedy play centers on the former hangman Harry Wade, who becomes a local pub owner after hanging gets abolished in England. Amid the pub regulars and cub reporters that show up to hear his reaction to the news and rub elbows with a once-semi-famous hangman, there's a troublemaking London stranger (played by...

  • Darren Criss in Hedwig and the Angry Inch

    You many know Darren Criss from playing heartthrob Blaine Anderson in Glee from 2010 - 2015. His character made male a cappella singing popular again, and he rightfully became a musical star. But Criss isn't just a Warbler. He's also a Broadway performer. Over the years, Criss's theatre credit list has grown substantially, thanks to appearances in Broadway shows, regional productions, and even going viral as a musically-inclined Harry Potter.Darren Criss is currently starring in American Buffalo...

  • Come From Away

    The ones who have come from away to see Irene Sankoff and David Hein's musical on Broadway can now experience it from away, too. On September 10, a filmed performance of Come From Away will start streaming worldwide on Apple TV+. The original Broadway cast members reunited to film the story about the residents of Gander, Newfoundland who welcomed thousands of people displaced by 9/11.The film does not lose any of the show's heart, and audiences can get a closer "gander" than ever before at the...

  • "The young are at the gates."This line is sung repeatedly in the new Off-Broadway musical Suffs about women's suffrage. The resounding refrain is a call to action for the next generation of leaders in the movement. But it's also a reminder that emerging talent and newcomers are ready to break through on stage as well. Suffs follows its own example, casting Nadia Dandashi, an actress fresh out of Pace University, to play the college-aged suffragist Doris.Having graduated college a year ago...

  • Every seat in a Broadway theatre is a good seat. Whether you're in the first row of the orchestra or the last row of the balcony, you're seeing theatre magic and a captivating, dramatic, and sometimes musical story unfold on the stage in front of you. But there's a special magic to sitting in the orchestra, where you're right up close to the performers.If you're a first-time or casual theatregoer, you might not know the difference between orchestra seats and those in other sections, like the...

  • Most people know Jesse Tyler Ferguson as a screen star — he's certainly got the awards to show for it, having amassed four Screen Actors Guild Awards and five Emmy nominations for playing Mitchell Pritchett on Modern Family. But did you know he's got a long theatre resume? He's appeared in nearly as many plays and musicals as TV shows in a variety of venues: on Broadway, off Broadway, and on the West Coast. Fittingly for a famous sitcom star, he usually takes on comedic roles, complete with...
