Best Of Broadway 2019

JANUARY 1, 2020

There’s a lot to look forward to on Broadway in 2020, with some amazing new shows opening. But we can’t forget all the fabulousness that happened just last year! Join us as we look back at our favorite Broadway moments of 2019!


Shows that opened in 2019: Ain't Too Proud, Beetlejuice, Hadestown, The Inheritance, Jagged Little Pill, Moulin Rouge! The Musical, Oklahoma!, Slave Play, Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, Tootsie, and so many more!

Video: Learning The Choreography From Ain’t Too Proud
Ain't Too Proud is leaving its mark on the Broadway stage! And It’s impossible for us to listen to the music of The Temps and not want to get up on our feet and dance so we met with Edgar Godineaux, Associate Choreographer of the show, who taught us some sweet moves! 

Host Your Own Tony’s Viewing Party
While most of us can only dream of going to the Tony Awards®, you can have your own fabulous viewing party right at home! With a little DIY magic, here’s how you can transform your living room into your own black tie affair…

Video: Making Pies With Waitress
Waitress is the perfectly sweet Broadway show about love, motherhood, and what happens when you're faced with the unexpected. Not only can you buy mason jar pies at the show, but they use actual pies on stage! We needed to learn more, so we met with Stacy Donnelly, Pie Consultant for Waitress, to learn about her delicious job and make one of the pies from the show. (Hurry, it’s closing on January 5!)

You Can-Can Have A Moulin Rouge Day!
Moulin Rouge! The Musical may be set in Paris at the turn of the century but trust us; New York City has plenty to offer a contemporary bohemian. Let us help you explore the city, guided by the musicals principles of truth, beauty, freedom—and above all—love!

Chatting With Broadway Star Andrew Barth Feldman (Part 1) and Chatting With Broadway Star Andrew Barth Feldman (Part 2)
Shortly after winning the National High School Musical Theatre Award®, Andrew Barth Feldman was selected to star in Dear Evan Hansen, making him the youngest actor to step into the role—and one of the few people to go straight from high school to a Broadway show. We sat down with him to chat about his incredible journey. (Catch Andrew’s awesome performance through January 26!)

Video: Making Some Noise With Stomp!
We talked with cast members from Stomp about the show’s global appeal and how it’s kept the fun going for over two decades. Then we got a chance to be loud and learn a few signature moves! 

Sneak Peek: Six Is Sensational!
From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the wives of Henry VIII take the mic to reclaim their identities out of the shadow of their infamous spouse—remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into an exuberant celebration of 21st century girl power. Six doesn’t start performances until February, but we got a sneak peek of the fun to come!

A Field Guide To This Season at The Met
Whether you’re a new opera-goer or just need some help sifting through the twenty-five different operas on offer at the Met this season, we’ve put together a quick guide of highlights to help you pick which show is right for you.

Video: Makeup Magic At Beetlejuice
Leslie Rodriguez Kritzer, star of the incredibly popular Beetlejuice, flipped the script and did her quick-change makeup routine into Miss Argentina on the show’s makeup supervisor—and invited us along for the process!

Video: A Sneak Peek at Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes
It’s not Christmas with the Radio City Rockettes! We stepped into their rehearsal room to see what it takes to pull off the annual holiday tradition, as well as chat with some of the legendary Rockettes themselves!

Five Things To Know About Girl From The North Country
This stirring new musical already made a name for itself during its pre-Broadway run. But what is Girl From The North Country about, and how does the show bring Bob Dylan’s legendary music to the stage? We sat down with writer-director Conor McPherson to find out.

Campbell Scott Dishes On A Christmas Carol
If you’re looking for some holiday spirit on Broadway, look no further than the magical new adaptation of Charles Dickens’s classic story A Christmas Carol. We sat down with Campbell Scott (House of Cards, Noises Off), who plays Ebenezer Scrooge, to talk more about the show.

Video: The Iconic Choreography Of Chicago
Chicago is a classic. It’s the show you can always count on to give you the thrills and memories that only come from seeing a Broadway musical. So we wanted to learn more about the scintillating moves behind the longest-running American musical on Broadway (and learn a few eight counts too!) 

Holiday Food and Gratitude On Broadway
‘Tis the season, and everywhere you look, New York City is full of holiday spirit. We checked in with a few Broadway stars and asked them about their favorite holiday dishes and what they’re thankful for this year.

Are You Broadway Ready?
They say that the anticipation of seeing a show can be as exciting as the show itself. We’re not sure, but if you want to super-size that anticipation—and learn a thing or two in the process—we have some fun ideas to help you prepare for your Broadway show.
