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 Crossword by Blog #5: Original vs Revival, Clue Set #3
I decided in CLUE SET #1 to mix things up a little bit and not give the clues out in order. The first set revealed the 9 plays and musicals and their revivals that the rest of the clues are about. That clue set also includes instructions for setting up your grid, tells you which lines contain no new clues, and other details about the way shows were picked. CLUE SET #1 is the best place to start this puzzle. CLUE SET #2 contains 7 pairs of clues about 7 of the 9 plays and musicals and their revivals that are part of the whole puzzle. If you kept track of which shows have had clues given about them, you know which two haven't been "clued" about. In today's clue set, the first two pairs are about those two shows. The rest of today's pairs, and those of the last clue set (#4, next week) are about all of the shows involved.
Here are this week's clue pairs. Remember: Each pair has to do with the same show/character/etc.
