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!

LEGEND: Susan Stroman

She's worked in just about every area of entertainment - stage, screen, television.  She's worked with entertainment legends like Mel Brooks, Stephen Sondheim, Harold Prince, Kander and Ebb.  She directs, choreographs, conceives shows and she even started as a performer!  She's a 13 time Tony nominee and 5 time Tony winner.  This season, she'll have four more cracks at Tony nominations and wins, too, with her direction and choreography of both Big Fish and Bullets Over Broadway.  Her endlessly creative dance moves and stunning directorial concepts make even her "flops" theatrical classics.  She is living Broadway legend Susan Stroman.
