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!

More Broadway Milestones

It has been quite a week for Broadway shows, with several shows marking milestones.  Here's a quick look at the ones that happened this week (September 12 - 16, 2011)!

OPENING:

September 12: The starry revival of Follies opened to mostly enthusiastic reviews at the Marquis Theatre.  StageGrade.com took all of the major reviews into consideration and gave it an average score of A-.  (Talkin' Broadway was the major nay-sayer giving it an "F".)
