  • Peter and the Starcatcher
    Star stuff is coming to Broadway. As we've known for several weeks now, Peter and the Starcatcher, which was magical last year at the New York Theatre Workshop, is heading uptown for a Broadway engagement at the Brooks Atkinson Theater. The show unveiled its new website this week, which comes complete with a priority pre-sale discount! Visit to order tickets for as little at $59. Also on the site: a video about crafting the show's poster (at right) and a FAQ sheet so you can enjoy every last bit of star stuff! Previews begin on March 28, and they're ready: they just announced the full cast!

  • The Lyons
    If you hear some roaring in the theatre district, it's probably coming from the Cort Theatre, where, it was announced this week, The Lyons will take up residency. The superb Nicky Silver play, which ran at the Vineyard Theatre last year (I loved it), is making the leap to Broadway this spring, opening sometime before the April 26 Tony eligibility deadline. Linda Lavin is confirmed to reprise her role as the Lyons matriarch and most of the off-Broadway cast (including Michael Esper) are expected to return, as well, according to the announcement on Stay tuned for details!

  • Leap of Faith
    If you're excited about Leap of Faith coming to Broadway, then you'll remember that a few weeks ago, stars Raul Esparza and Jessica Phillips did a photo shoot for the show. You may also remember that a couple weeks ago they released a behind-the-shoot video (see below). Well, this week the actual promotional shots were released. They seem to say, "Hello. We are the cast of Leap of Faith, and we are sexy." (And I'm totally fine with that!) Visit the show's Facebook page to view all the photos by Joan Marcus, like the one at right, and then head over to to learn more and purchase tickets. (Bonus: On the website, you can listen to the title song!)
