HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

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. April 2010

Ms. April's career spans less than a decade, but already she's made a splash (and quite a name for herself) on Broadway.  In that time, she's appeared in a notorious flop, 2 musicals named Best Musical at the Tony awards, a revival one of the most beloved and classic Broadway musicals of all time, and she is currently co-starring in perhaps the highest-profile new musical of the season, The Addams Family.  And considering the star power and the fact that her character, Wednesday Addams provides the main story of the piece, one might say Ms. April has arrived!

I'm speaking, of course, of Krysta Rodriguez, who made her debut in the very short-lived Good Vibrations, went on to be featured in both Spring Awakening and In the Heights, and even did a stint "on the line" in A Chorus Line's recent revival.  Not bad, not bad at all!

Here she is... Ms. April 2010... Krysta Rodriguez!
