Celebrating Broadway. Off-Broadway. National Tours. Regional Theatre. Rants, raves and reviews. News, interviews and the hottest performers on the stage!
"No one should read any kind of criticism — and especially theater criticism — as gospel. It’s not the last word. It’s the beginning of a conversation." - B. Brantley, The New York Times
Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.
I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

Broadway Ladies: Ms. March 2010
At a mere 24 years old, the Canadian-born actress who is Ms. March, has amassed an impressive resume to date: 50 television and film credits (in the US, Canada and Europe), and a stage career full of high-profile off-Broadway and Broadway shows, including a performance that garnered her a 2006 Tony nomination. She has (or is) co-starred with some equally impressive names including Matthew Modine, Bobby Canavale, Dylan Baker, Katie Finneran, Sean Penn and even Lindsay Lohan! These days, she's creating another stage memory for all of us as Anne Sullivan aka The Miracle Worker, in which co-stars with Oscar nominee and fellow young phenom, Abigail Breslin. (Both have co-starred, separately, with Steve Carell.)
By now you have probably guessed that this month's Broadway Lady is none other than Alison Pill.
Let's all hope The Miracle Worker sticks around for awhile. This terrific actress deserves to be seen.
