The full list of episodes is below:

Episode 1: How Did We Get Here?

On March 12, 2020, the Broadway industry was abruptly shut down as a new pandemic began to swell in NYC and beyond. What began as a one-month pause turned into 18 months without the lifeblood of the city: live theater. In Episode 1 of "Here's To The Ladies Who", we hear from the women who were on the ground when the news hit, and how they were impacted by that infamous day. Opening narration by Ashley Park.

Episode 2: Who We Are

It takes a village to put on a show. In Episode 2 of "Here's To The Ladies Who", we hear some of the changemaker women who are integral to making theater happen discuss what they do, how they came to do it, and the important function their roles serve in the Broadway ecosystem. Opening narration by Amber Gray.

Episode 3: The Shutdown

From layoffs to salary cuts to furloughs, Episode 3 of "Here's To The Ladies Who" brings to light the emotional and financial impact of what those decisions created. The women in this episode were faced with the impossible business impacts of the pandemic and global theater shutdown. Opening narration by Eva Noblezada.

Episodes 4 & 5 (Double Release): When We Had The Time

These complementary episodes examine the Broadway shutdown's impact when we were forced to take a break from our otherwise busy and overscheduled lives. How did we handle our newfound free time? Episode 4 looks at the lighter side of this freedom: What did we watch; what did we bake; what did we create? Episode 5, we take a deeper look at how the shutdown forced us to reevaluate our work, our priorities, and our industry as a whole. Opening narration by Bonnie Milligan.

Episode 6: Legacy

In this final episode of "Here's To The Ladies Who," we look forward to how we expand our industry to what it can and must become. We offer and celebrate our legacy. This is our love letter to the women of Broadway. Opening narration by Jessica Phillips.
