Listen to Meryl Streep Rap in Ryan Murphy’s ‘The Prom’, and Despair

How Broadway’s ‘The Prom’ Is Fostering LGBTQ Acceptance

Exit Lines: Standouts

The Broadway phenomenon of the year…is on Netflix, where you (and, finally, I) can see Springsteen on Broadway. But if you care to leave the comfort of your screen at some for the (colder) comfort of Times Square this holiday season, there are other shows that are “boss” along the Great White Way. Chief among these is The Ferryman, a show that is outsized in every way, with live animals and a baby (an actual baby, not a prop) vying with a cast of nearly two dozen adult performers for our attenti...

Broadway Review: ‘The Prom’

It seems like a dubious musical mash-up: Broadway narcissists-turned-activists take over a middle-American town to help a lesbian teen who just wants to bring her date to the prom.
