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 Boys: Mr. November 2011: Telly Leung

LYSISTRATA JONES CONTEST QUESTION #2 IS AT THE BOTTOM OF TODAY'S BLOG

Mr. November 2011
Telly Leung

WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY: Mr. November is everywhere these days, and has been for some time.  Whether he's on the West Coast as part of the television phenomenon called Glee, or doing regional productions all over the country - Once on this Island and Give It Up! to name but two, or appearing in world premiere readings (Allegiance is but one), this guy is busy.  And, of course, there's Broadway, where he is currently previewing in Godspell.  Active in the community, he does tons of benefits and finds time to blog for Playbill.com and vlog for Broadway.com.  Being everywhere at once and crafting an A-list multi-media career is the biggest reason Telly Leung is Mr. Broadway for November 2011!
