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!

OUT Magazine: Broadway Love Stories

Broadway favorite and perennial magazine cover boy Neil Patrick Harris has made the cover of yet another magazine.  This time, though, it is part of a celebration of love stories and the impact of marriage rights for gays and lesbians, and the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell," as presented in this month's issue of OUT Magazine.

In the issue, there are 26 such love stories presented with people from all walks of life - actors, artists, writers, even a pair of recently out military men.  These are people who are in long-term, committed relationships which have survived during times of oppression, and who are now freer to express their love and commitment to each other in their workplace and in their lives.

Within the stories, there are three that should have particular resonance for Broadway fans, and I feature them here.  But to get the full scope of this romantic and politically important issue, click HERE to see more and to get information on the full issue of OUT Magazine.

NEIL PATRICK HARRIS (ACTOR/HOST) AND DAVID BURTKA (ACTOR)
