Newsies: Talent On Stage and Off!

It seems like just yesterday that Newsies was being put on at the PaperMill Playhouse, a regional production with dreams of being on Broadway.

The Best Broadway Restaurants

A little while back I wrote about one of my favorite post-show eateries, Junior’s, where I love to “decompress” over a big slice of cheesecake following a fantastic show.  And it got me thinking.  I love Junior’s, but it’s just one of the many iconic midtown restaurants that have found their way into NYC’s theatrical […]
