by Alexa Criscitiello - Sep 20, 2016

When Falsettos first premiered on Broadway in 1992, the show gained instant status as a game changer.

by Cara Joy David - Sep 15, 2016

Who helps an actor to sing material a certain way?

In truth, in the majority of cases in the musical theater world it is the Musical (or Music) Director. This person, who is not eligible for a Tony Award and rarely gets mentioned in reviews, is integral to the product you see and hear. (more...)
