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 PHOTO OF THE WEEK:

Those "Beautiful Girls" are ghosts haunting the Marquis Theatre!

The Follies ghosts - just in time for Halloween!  I love this feature at Playbill.com.  Every week, thay have a photo collection taken by a cast member of a Broadway show.  It is called "A Two Show Day with..." and the cast member chronivles his or her day from getting up at home, through morning rituals, to pre-matinee backstage goings on and during show backstage views.  Then it's all about the prep for the evening show, the show and saying, "good night!"  This photo comes from this week's "A Two Show Day with Christian Delcroix."  Check it out!  http://www.playbill.com/multimedia/gallery/3141
