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!

Who's Who 10 Years Later: This revue didn't last long, but it sure was full of stars that have gone on to bigger things. Broadway regular Liz Calloway, arguably one of the two biggest names in the show at the time hasn't been back since.  Eugene Fleming has since appeared in Never Gonna Dance and Billy Elliot.    Capathia Jenkins was last in Newsies, and before that Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me and Caroline, or Change.  Janine LaManna went on to Sweet Charity and The Drowsy Chaperone; Shannon Lewis has since become Mrs. Marc Kudisch, and has been in Sweet Charity, How to Succeed..., Curtains, The People in the Picture and The Mystery of Edwin Drood; Rachelle Rak has been in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Catch Me If You Can; and Nikki Renee Daniels has appeared in Les Miserables (revival), Promises, Promises, Anything Goes and Porgy and Bess.
