As we continue to look back in honor of our 10th anniversary, we re-visit 2017, when Broadway welcomed childhood favorites Anastasia and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and welcomed back Once On This Island and Miss Saigon!
2018 was another busy year for us as we covered shows like Frozen, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and The Ferryman, as well as the Off-Broadway hit The Jungle!
We’ve now had a first and second wave of cast announcements for our 10th anniversary virtual concert this Monday, April 13th at 4pm PST / 7pm EST! The concert will take place on YouTube (streaming link to come) and the lineup will include (with more announcements coming soon):
