Celebrating Broadway. Off-Broadway. National Tours. Regional Theatre. Rants, raves and reviews. News, interviews and the hottest performers on the stage!
"No one should read any kind of criticism — and especially theater criticism — as gospel. It’s not the last word. It’s the beginning of a conversation." - B. Brantley, The New York Times
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!
