In October, Stage Notes will celebrate its first anniversary on WXXI.  What a year it has been! As Cy Coleman’s song aptly says, The Best is Yet to Come. Many exciting programs are in the works, including the second edition of the haunting music of Broadway on October 29th.  The first program featured love songs from Broadway musicals. Without a doubt, that program could have run for five-hundred twenty-five thousand six-hundred minutes.

Off Broadway Takes Center Stage

Sat, 09/10/2011 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Many Broadway musicals started in a theatre off Broadway, including Sunday in the Park with George, RENT, and Godspell.  It is magnificent theatre created year-round, all over Manhattan.  From Pulitzer Prize-winning dramas to fun family fare, from laugh-till-you-cry comedies to foot-stomping extravaganzas, there’s something for everyone Off-Broadway.
