The Best of Times (and Talent!) On & Off the Great White Way
In the event you’re in the process of coordinating your calendar for the next few weeks, be sure to include the 66th Annual Tony Awards broadcast set to air Sunday night, June 10 (8-11pm) on CBS. Unlike last year, when The Book of Mormon barely had time to leave tread marks as it rolled over the competition for Best New Musical, this season’s roster of contenders is about as diverse as it gets.

Broadway's Sparkling Brush with Royalty - Priscilla Queen of the Desert
Priscilla Queen of the Desert surprises you. The year-plus-old musical at the Palace Theatre is about a three drag performers traversing the Australian outback in a bus. It moves to a rousing pop/disco score and sports Broadway’s most outrageous costumes. Yet, more than anything, it is a poignant show about family and fatherhood. (read the story...)

Spring Forward on the Great White Way
In case you hadn’t heard, New York City is celebrating that sparkling time of year dubbed (at least by me) The Preeminent Pre-Tony Playoffs (what can I say, I’m a sucker for alliteration). Still, 2012’s glam and glorious American Theatre Wing’s Tony Awards -- set for Sunday night, June 10th on CBS -- is nothing if not the Super Bowl of Broadway: a star-a-thon deluxe featuring celeb wannabes and attractive relatives of theatrical VIPs as “seat fillers.” (read the story...)

Dan Sperry – Your Friendly Neighborhood Shock Illusionist
Don’t get too comfortable as you settle into your seat -- at Dan Sperry’s Twisted Theatre of Shock Illusion, you’ll witness acts that defy logic, trick the mind, and give audiences innumerable chills at the expense of one quick-handed daredevil, anti-conjuror Sperry himself. You may have heard the name Dan Sperry before, after he gained unexpected fame from the prime-time hit show America’s Got Talent, twisting the minds of judge Howie Mandel and his colleagues.

The Town Hall Presents the 12th Season of Broadway by the Year
The Town Hall’s critically acclaimed Broadway by the Year's 12th Season continues with The Broadway Musicals of 1975 on Monday, May 8th at 8pm. 1975 was a year that brought us famous shows by musical theater icons including Marvin Hamlisch (A Chorus Line), John Kander and Fred Ebb (Chicago), and Richard O’Brien (The Rocky Horror Show), among others. Produced by The Town Hall, The Broadway Musicals of 1975 is created, written and hosted by Scott Siegel. (read the story...)

Ghost the Musical - Believe? Ditto.
With network and cable reruns of the hit 1990 film Ghost a fairly regular occurrence, it’s to be expected that a stage musical based on the cinematic original is pretty much ripe for comparison. With Whoopi Goldberg flexing her most impressive comedic muscles as Oda Mae Brown (Academy Award), and Patrick Swayze’s Sam embodying every woman’s romantic ideal (even post-mortem), the challenge of bringing new faces to these iconic roles had to be staggering.

Broadway Goes Courtside: The Ultimate Match-Up - Magic/Bird
From 1979 to 1991, there was no more compelling rivalry in sports than the one between Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. Johnson was the ebullient point guard of the Los Angeles Lakers. Bird was the reticent country boy who returned the Boston Celtics to glory. Together, they saved the National Basketball Association after a dismal decade. (read the story...)

NY Theatre Has Never Been Hotter -- Blame It on Spring Fever
With all due respect to the Lone Star State, once the wagon train of new shows heading to the Tonys in June go all bumper-to-bumper, NYC will be hijacking Texas’s theme song.

Craving a naughty, off-kilter dip in uninhibited and hilarious musical waters? Say no more: I’ve got your pool pass to the decade’s hottest Off Broadway parody: SILENCE! The Musical. Did I mention it’s unauthorized—as any twisted cult knock-off should be -- or that it was adapted for the stage by Hunter Bell at the request of brothers Jon and Al Kaplan, who wrote the songs? Well, it was. (read the story...)

Don't Stop Believin': Rock of Ages Resurrects the Reagan Era

Memphis - One Sizzling Hot Broadway Musical
