David Benkof, the Broadway Maven
Think more deeply about musical theater
Every Thursday, more than 9,000 Broadway fans receive The Broadway Maven’s Weekly Blast, a newsletter for those who want to think more deeply about musical theater. Every issue of the Blast includes “Peter Filichia’s Broadway” digging beneath the surface of a different show each week. It also features essays, reviews, “YouTube Gems,” surveys, games, quizzes, and “Last Blasts” that re-examine beloved Broadway shows with fresh insight or wit or both.
Examples of recent lead articles:
• When “Carousel” was Jewish
• Defending Evan Hansen
• Anatevka Schtick: seven “Fiddler” jokes
• A Chorus Line’s dazzling night — and others
• Are you pronouncing these Broadway terms wrong?
Feel free to examine some of the many past FREE issues; just avoid the ones with a lock because those are available only to subscribers.
You can choose between a FREE subscription (one full issue a month as well as every week’s lead article) and a full subscription (a full issue once a week) for just $5 a month or $36 a year.
