Broadway Musicals To Spice Up The Great (Stale) White Way!

  What percentage of Broadway these days is original content? Take away the musical (or staged play) versions of popular movies and you’ve got what left.   Hamilton. Basically, only Hamilton.   Look, we can’t all be the next Hamilton. But that doesn’t mean

  TBH, I’m always stumped when people ask me what my “hobbies” are. Like… I’m an adult??? I don’t have hobbies???   My jobs are so amazing, they can sometimes feel like hobbies (paranormal, true crime, arts and crafts, these are hobbies!).

MoMA Alone
