Diversity on Broadway: Tony Noms

Tony nominations were announced last week, which means Broadway has officially caught Tony fever, and I have officially gone into spreadsheet mode. With countless statistics on nominees and winners, the Tonys are a gold mine for finding concise information on diversity both on stage and behind the scenes of Broadway.  I looked at the diversity for all of the shows in the 2016-17 Broadway season a few weeks ago, but this...

When Broadway Shows Close Quickly

My friend Adeline and I have been planning to see the play Significant Other on Broadway for a few months, and we’ve been patiently waiting for our spring trip into Manhattan to see it. However, the production, an off-Broadway transfer, was not performing well. The show was making around 20% of its potential gross per week¹, and the infamous Broadway message boards spoke of the play’s inevitable demise. The show’s...

I believe in wholly supporting the arts—they’ve be too instrumental in my life for me to do anything but. However, as a full-time student, my wallet doesn’t always agree. And maybe yours doesn’t either. But lucky for us, theatre companies are generous and understanding, offering some pretty sweet ticketing discounts to students, young adults, and anyone willing to wait until the last minute to score seats. Through these opportunities, I’ve...
