Oh, how we miss this😭 There really is nothing like being inside a theatre. And seeing brilliant theatre to boot. Thunderous applause, not a dry eye in sight. One day it will return...but until then we remember. One year ago THE INHERITANCE opened on Broadway - it brilliantly wove the stories of New Yorkers together and asked the question: in the aftermath of a pandemic (in this case the AIDS epidemic), what is our responsibility to those we have lost and how do we collectively move forward. It was an incredibly powerful and masterful play written by Matthew Lopez and brilliantly directed by Stephen Daldry. The Inheritance abruptly ended when the world stopped and has since won the Drama Desk, Drama League and Outer Critics Circle awards for Best Play and is nominated for 11 Tony Awards, including Best Play 🌟

That time Josh Groban was on Broadway😍 NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 was based on Tolstoy and developed at Ars Nova. When it opened on Broadway in 2016, scenic designer Mimi Lien transformed the Imperial Theater for the production✨ The operetta was written by David Malloy, directed by Rachel Chavkin and choreographed by Sam Pinkleton✨ Who saw it?!

Two enemy camps serendipitously coming together and discovering each other’s humanity. Where could this be of relevance today? Oh wait- “It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric. To lower the temperature. To see each other again. To listen to each other again. To make progress, we must stop treating our opponents as our enemy.”
(President-Elect Biden, 11/7/20)

Today in 2017 The Band's Visit opened on Broadway to rave reviews. It would go on to win 10 Tony Awards 🏆 Book by Itamar Moses. Music & lyrics by David Yazbek. Directed by David Cromer. (🎨: @ariel81331)

Our friend Billy received a letter this morning📬 He wrote back:
“Dear Broadway,
You are far from a distant memory. I think of you every day and listen to your albums constantly. And while I miss you terribly, I can’t wait to get together again — even if it’ll take a bit longer than expected. See you sometime after May 31, 2021!
Love you forever,
Billy”

“I cannot count the times I sat behind her in the theater in DC. She didn’t go because she was an invited dignitary. She went because she couldn’t stay away. She was the embodiment of the cultivated public servant - who knew the arts were the soul’s nourishment. God’s rest RBG.” - Peter Marks, Chief Theater Critic of The Washington Post

Today in 1980, 42ND STREET opened at the Winter Garden Theater. It was based on the Oscar-nominated film from 1933 starring Ruby Keeler. Unfortunately the musical quickly went down in theater history because it’s legendary director, Gower Champion, died hours before opening night...but “producer David Merrick kept the event secret under the axiom, ‘The show must go on.’ A standing ovation greeted the cast upon completion. They received ten curtain calls which was in essence the final curtain call for Gower Champion. At this point, Merrick walked out from the wings and uttered these words to a stunned cast and audience, ‘Our beloved director Gower Champion has died.’ The show went on and on...42ND STREET became one of the most successful musicals ever produced on Broadway with 3,486 performances. A huge memorial service was staged at the Winter Garden during which the lights of Broadway were dimmed in honor of Gower Champion.” -Donald Greyfield (🎶: Harry Warren/Al Dubin. Book by Michael Stewart & Mark Bramble)
