Andrew Barth Feldman
He's Broadway's newest Evan Hansen... and he's still in high school! Follow this sixteen year-old before his stardom truly takes off.
?: @nathanjohnsonny In February 2017, Waving Through A Window was released ahead of the rest of the cast album. I didn't know anything about Dear Evan Hansen, but I listened to that song on repeat, showing it to people who hadn't heard it, discussing it with people who had. I went to my first Project Broadway meeting a few days later and said to @marctumminelli, "I hope this show flops so that I can sing this song in every audition," to which he replied, "You want it to succeed so that you can be in it." I saw the show with @mbtink53 in previews pretty soon after that and was in a state of shock. My family asked me how it was, and I just said, "I don't want to talk about it." The show, the character, hit me in a very real and very important place. I had new determination. I put Evan at the very tippy top of my dream role list. Evan was something inside of me that I needed to fish out, so I started fishing. Then came the Jimmy Awards. I had new tools and new confidence in myself. I didn't know what exactly would come out of it, but it was exactly the reaffirmation I needed at that time in my life. I got the email that they wanted me to audition. "This is what you've been waiting for," I said to myself. "You've thought a lot about this, and you've figured out what to do." Only I hadn't. My Evan at that point was nothing but fabricated twitches and angst. I took a step back and remembered what I learned at the Jimmys. I needed to trust myself, trust the words, and trust that Evan was somewhere inside of me. Suddenly, Evan wasn't some intangible concept. Evan was a part of me. I'm not saying that I've figured Evan out completely in any world. I'm cracking open a new shell every day, realizing something about him that I hadn't already, and this is even before we really get into rehearsal. But it isn't script analysis, it's more like meeting myself for the first time. This is my singular greatest dream. I am making my Broadway debut as my very tippy top dream role at the age of 16. That's a dream sentence and this is a dream life. Thank you to anyone who has ever put any faith in me to do anything ever. You know who you are, and you got me here. #YouWillBeFound

Freedom. Such an important feeling in life and art. It was something I didn't have or feel for many, many years. Especially around my voice and singing. There have been so many shifts in my life over the last few years and this is definitely one of them. The feeling of freedom, when I sing is coming back more and more everyday. The feeling of joy and lightness, instead of dread and heaviness. Every day, a little closer to a fuller expression of myself. #growth #indiemusic #bigriskbigrewards #edenrevelation #indieartist #revelation #012019 ?@monroegscott dress @christydawn

"Everyone needs to vote. I know it can feel so huge, and you might feel like you're just one person out of millions of people so your vote doesn't really make a difference, but all of us together can form a tidal wave that can make real change. One person can do something and it can inspire the masses. By voting anyway, you might inspire a friend to vote, who then inspires a group of people who then inspires even more people. It's a ripple effect. You absolutely count, and it is imperative that you know that you count at this moment. They're relying on you to think that you're insignificant. All of this is chaos happening right now because they keep playing off the fact that we don't think we matter. We need to tell them with our votes that we do all matter and we don't believe that story anymore." - @chitty_balone from @ltmusical, performing in Broadway Fights Back on October 22 at NYC's Town Hall

In 2019, Rob Rokicki is the songwriter to watch! Arguably, his most famous work is the musical adaptation of The Lightning Thief, and his song cycle Monstersongs just premiered in the UK at The Other Palace.

You've seen her in Hamilton and Head Over Heels, but Samantha Pollino's next starring role is fiancé! She just "said yes" to her betrothed, so we are gearing up for all of her pre-wedding posts to come in 2019.

She's a theater director who already holds a Forbes 30 under 30 title to her name. She's Sammi Cannold, one of the main minds behind Ragtime on Ellis Island and the Associate Director of Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812.

She's always part of our world on Broadway, but we want to make sure Sierra Boggess has a place on your feed, too. She originated the role of Ariel in Broadway's The Little Mermaid before taking an unforgettable turn in The Phantom of the Opera.

Taylor Iman Jones
If you've heard Taylor Iman Jones' voice, then you already know the obvious - she is a bonafide star. She made her Broadway debut last season in Groundhog Day, and she enters 2019 closing out her standout role as Mopsa in Head Over Heels.

Her name is Taylor Louderman, and she is a massive deal. She nabbed a Tony nomination playing Regina George in Mean Girls, and she recently became a dog mama to a sweet pup named Charlie.
"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream." - C.S. Lewis Today 27, tomorrow 28... my heart is so full as I reflect on the wonderful year I have had.

Teal Wicks is tackling the formidable force as "Lady" Cher in The Cher Show, and she slays. Whether she's performing with Sonny Bono or simply standing statuesque as Cher herself, she shines through and through.

Right now, Tee Boyich stands by for several leading ladies in Mean Girls, including Cady, Janis, and Gretchen. Her voice, however, may be most recognizable as one of the main singing voices in the opening credits of the hit Netflix show, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
27 was a year for the books. In that year I started a new career and made my broadway debut. I traveled to Ireland, Omaha, DC, Chicago, LA, Hawaii, Nashville, Baltimore and Australia. I learned a lot about the person I want to be, and the kind of person I don't want to be. I've had triumphs and made huge mistakes. I went back to therapy. I struggled with and beat depression. I've strengthened good friendships and said goodbye to others. 27 taught me the importance of quality of life over endless work, the importance of a few truly amazing friendships over a vast group of friends. It taught my my love for quieter, simpler things. It showed me the path I want to take as I near my 30s. And for that I'm so grateful. I hope 28 is full of change, challenge, joy, love, adventure, travel, and peace. Thank you all for coming along on this journey. Xoxo

A newcomer to Broadway, Zach Adkins most recently appeared as Dmitry in Anastasia. His current credit as dad to Moose the Dog, however, may be our favorite role yet!
