Student Blog: We're Back!

Broadway musicals return, and nature is healing.

We've waited almost two years, but Broadway musicals have officially begun to reopen. Here are some highlights from the past few weeks:

The return of Waitress brought Sara Bareilles back as Jenna and Drew Gehling as Dr. Pottamer. At the opening night curtain call, the cast called Amanda Kloots onstage to pay tribute to her husband, Nick Cordero. In productions of Waitress around the world, audiences will be able to spot Cordero's "Live Your Life' Pie" on the menu board in honor of the late actor.

Hadestown also returned with most of the original cast to the Walter Kerr theater last week, and the excitement among the audience is palpable.

Just days ago, the theatrical community lost one of it’s greatest minds and hearts; Stephen Sondheim. His old age did not make his death any less of a shock, and his admirers are feeling the weight of his absence.
