Broadway Lil. That is what they call me. At least it’s what I call myself. Darling, self-titles are rather important because you always need something snazzy to say when you’re being introduced to theatrical people and also jazz musicians. As you kiss your new acquaintances glibly on the cheek you can shout your title. “Broadway Lil, darling, salutations!” I haven’t met any jazz musicians lately … Continue reading A Theatrical Life
Bonjour and hello! I have returned, my theatrical friends! I’ve missed you with every part of my dramatical self, and I am so happy to be back. I have many exciting and fabulous articles and interviews planned for this blog, and I also have some very exciting news about my musical, Lavender Nicholson Is Not Okay, that I will be announcing shortly. Much has happened … Continue reading I’m Back!
Hello my friends! I hope you are all doing well and being theatrical and stunning aka being yourselves! I missed you every moment that I was away from you, but thank the theatre muses, here I am. I have returned. The past several weeks have been terrifyingly busy. Who decides to take six college classes while they’re still in high school and do two plays … Continue reading More Theatrical Musings
Bonjour, mes amis! Where the Sondheim have I been? That is a very good question. Much has occurred in the past weeks, not the least of which has been my return to college and the struggles that have resulted. I’m taking six classes, and directing a play and trying to workshop my musical, and- I feel as though I’m getting a handle on it, though. … Continue reading Watching Brand-New Musicals With Stephen Schwartz!
Bonjour, mes chéris! Here I am again, sitting in the college library, willing my Pulitzer-worthy prose to come to me. While I wait, I might as well tell you what’s poppin’. As a side note, “what’s poppin’” is slang for “what is currently happening?”, and NOT a thing people say when they want you to explain the entire plot of Mary Poppins and … Continue reading Theatrical Musings
Happy Day After New Years! After all the festivities and concerning amounts of Martinelli’s Sparkling Apple Cider that we have sipped from plastic champagne glasses while watching Cabaret (or was that just me?), we’re all a bit worn to the bone and looking ahead to the New Year. It’s sort of terrifying. Last year my New Year’s post was about how we theatre geeks don’t … Continue reading A Very Theatrical 2018!
Bonjour, my theatrical friends, and Merry Christmas! I have very exciting news! My blog of Broadway, weirdness, theatricality, and bad French was nominated for the Liebster Award by one of my favorite blogs of all time MyMusicalTheatreLife.

Bonjour mes amants de théâtre chérie! In other words, hello, my darling theatre lovers! I’m back. And wishing I spoke better French. The issue isn’t my underuse of the language, it’s my overuse of Google Translate. But no one can ever say I wasn’t fully committed. What I’ve learned, through my adamant perusal of theatricality is that half the battle is being committed. Will this … Continue reading A Very Dramatical Christmas🎭
“A bit of madness is key.” -La La Land Cheerio, my dear friends! I said I’d be back and I am! The past week has been rawther crazy. I had to go to college, write an essay, take a quiz, use a vending machine… I honestly don’t know how I’d still standing. But standing I am, and today, I thought I would tell you all … Continue reading Marian Seldes and Embracing the Fabulous: A Theatre Geek Discovers Some Life Truths
Hi my darlings! Something tremendous happened last week. It was incredibly exciting. It was fabulously fabulous. It was humongously theatrical. It involved Lin-Manuel Miranda. Also, I know Lin has been seemingly overtaking this blog, but next week will be different, I swear. I won’t even mention his name, probably, most likely. Just bear with me for one more week. As many of you know … Continue reading Stalking Lin-Manuel Miranda
