NEWS YOU MISSED YESTERDAY:

Broadway Weather Forecast: Feels like deja vu! Thunderstorms with a high of 84 today. But hang in there -- looks like the clouds will be clearing up later this week.

Quote of the Day: In light of yesterday's wonderful news that AMERICAN PSYCHO will be traveling across the pond, hear what creator Duncan Sheik has to say about darkness in art...

I actually think sadness and darkness can be very beautiful and healing.
-- Duncan Sheik (via BrainyQuote)

What we're listening to: The LADY DAY AT EMERSON'S BAR AND GRILL Original Broadway Cast Recording, out today! Not only do we get to travel back in time to Billie Holiday's hey-day, we also get to live it through another stand-out entertainer -- six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald.
