Andrew: Let's get down to business. Why should we care about the TONY's...or DO we care about the TONY's? That's the topic.
Gemma: So, I personally care about the TONY's because it's like my sporting event.
Andrew: It's your Superbowl.
Gemma: Okay, peeps. Lateness...to a show. Feelings?
Christine: Prices, and if you're going with someone or not. What is considered "too late"?
Andrew: Listen, it's not a problem, because what if the person is just trying to look for spots around town to eat? After the theatre.
Christine: They can do before or after...or during the wonderful thing called intermission.
Gemma: Then do that AFTER THE SHOW!

When I took Theatre 101 during the first semester of my freshman year at Hunter College, the first things I learned were what specifically separated theatre from other art-forms. What was theatre?Read More
Don't worry. I've got your back.
Because I spend a lot of my free time on YouTube tuning into vloggers, a large part of my theatregoing has a lengthy list of YouTube Channels to support it. A good majority of these vloggers are artists.
It's probably the best season weather and fashion wise! You don't have to wear a jacket if you don't want to, which enables you to show off your slayFUL* outfit. Yes, I just made that up. *slayful = no one can compare, even if they tried!Read More
Welcome to Serial... killing...
I know, bad joke. Anyway, welcome to my dark world of murder and death….IN THE THEATRE!

Don't worry. Nothing big is going to happen, besides a mountain of shame...
But to help you through one of those not-so-subtle tired times, we are here to help you out.
I am going to write about something that has plagued America for years: the dreaded theatre vs. theater debate. The two spellings of the same word often put people (like myself) in the awkward position of not knowing which one is the best to use.Read More
It’s a "boys club” would be an understatement when we look at theatre and its history. Taking it as far back as the time of our beloved Shakespeare, chicks weren’t even allowed to play the female roles on stage. Thankfully there has been some progress...Read More
