Why subscribe?

You love Broadway.

Subscribers to the Weekly Blast are musical theater fans who want to better understand Broadway shows. Every Thursday, all subscribers (paid and FREE) get an article offering a fresh perspective about a Broadway show. Recent examples:

• Is Grease’s Sandy dead?

• “Decipherating” Wicked’s Oz-speak

• When Ashman met Menken

• How bossy was Fosse?

In addition, paid subscribers (and everyone else once a month) get YouTube GEMS; student contributions; polls; and RANTs and RAVEs about Broadway shows, books, albums, and more. For examples, check the first issue of the month at the archive.
