Congratulations are in order for playwright Lynn Nottage, whose incredible play Sweat, currently playing at Studio 54, was recently selected as the winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama! Nottage, who previously won the award in 2009 for her play Ruined, is the first woman to win the award for a second time.
Additionally, the American Academy of Arts & Letters also announced Lynn Nottage to be the winner of their Distinguished Achievement in Drama Award. Presented once every 6 years, Nottage is just the second woman and first person of color to receive this honor.
Filled with warm humor and tremendous heart, Sweat tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets and laughs while working together on the factory floor. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight to stay afloat.
Sweat comes to Broadway this season following its sold-out New York premiere at The Public Theater last fall, directed by Kate Whoriskey, who has previously collaborated with Lynn Nottage on the Pulitzer Prize-winning Ruined among other plays.

This season’s hit revival of the iconic Broadway musical Miss Saigon is the perfect show for student groups! It addresses universal themes of love and sacrifice, teaches new audiences about the tragedies and ramifications of the Vietnam War, and is one of the most spellbinding musicals on Broadway!

There, she meets and falls in love with an American G.I. named Chris, but they are torn apart by the fall of Saigon.

Breaking news, Broadway lovers! Next season’s revival of Ahrens and Flaherty’s Once on This Island has just announced an international casting search to find the production’s heroine, Ti Moune.

Once on This Island is the Broadway musical celebration that sweeps us across the sea to a small village—where, in the aftermath of a great storm, a joyous new life begins.
It is the tale of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl who falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island. When their divided cultures threaten to keep them apart, Ti Moune, guided by the island gods, sets out on a remarkable quest to reunite with the man who has captured her heart.
Bursting with Caribbean colors, rhythms and dance, the story comes to vibrant life through the score by Tony Award® winners Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (Anastasia, Ragtime). The striking production by Tony Award-nominated director Michael Arden (Spring Awakening revival) transforms the reality of a tropical village devastated by a storm into a fantastical world alive with hope.

Broadway isn’t the only place to find captivating theatre. Off-Broadway is home to many exciting shows and has also served as a launching pad for some of Broadway’s biggest hits. Roundabout Theatre Company has two shows currently running in their Off-Broadway space, the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, that we think you’ll enjoy:
If I Forget
In the final months before 9/11, liberal Jewish studies professor Michael Fischer has reunited with his two sisters to celebrate their father’s 75th birthday. Each deeply invested in their own version of family history, the siblings clash over everything from Michael’s controversial scholarly work to the mounting pressures of caring for an ailing parent. As destructive secrets and long-held resentments bubble to the surface, the three negotiate—with biting humor and razor-sharp insight—how much of the past they’re willing to sacrifice for a chance at a new beginning. If I Forget tells a powerful tale of a family and a culture at odds with itself.
From Steven Levenson, acclaimed writer of Dear Evan Hansen and Roundabout’s The Language of Trees, comes If I Forget, a sharply funny, unflinchingly honest new play about the stories we choose to believe, the compromises we can’t avoid and the hurt only our nearest and dearest can inflict.
In the video above, watch the cast of If I Forget, including TV’s Kate Walsh (Private Practice) and Tony nominees Larry Bryggman (Proof), Maria Dizzia (Orange is the New Black), and Jeremy Shamos (Clybourne Park).
If I Forget is playing at the Laura Pels Theatre through April 30, 2017.
On the Exhale
When a senseless act of violence changes her life forever, a liberal college professor (Tony Award® nominee Marin Ireland, reasons to be pretty) finds herself inexplicably drawn to the very weapon used to perpetrate the crime – and to the irresistible feeling of power that comes from holding life and death in her hands. Peering down the barrel of a uniquely American crisis, she begins to suspect that when it comes to gun violence, we’re all part of the problem.
Roundabout Underground presents On the Exhale, a provocative world premiere from Martin Zimmerman (Netflix’s Narcos), directed by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman (Well, Roundabout’s Violet). Staged with propulsive, heart-pounding intensity in Roundabout’s intimate Black Box Theatre, this grippingly immediate story draws you into the white-hot center of our country’s most divisive – and most urgent – debate.
In the video above, watch star Marin Ireland (Amazon’s Sneaky Pete) discuss On the Exhale.
On the Exhale is playing at Roundabout’s Black Box Theatre through April 2, 2017.
Group tickets start at $30 for If I Forget and $20 for On the Exhale for groups of 10+. To book your tickets today, call Your Broadway Genius at 877-943-2929.
Earlier this month, Newsday was taken over by School of Rock star Brandon Niederauer. The Long Island newspaper followed the 13-year-old (who has played the role of Zack since the show opened in 2015) for an entire day to see what it’s really like for a Broadway star who also happens to be a kid. Look through this fun feature and see how Brandon and his co-stars balance their homework and chores with “stickin’ it to the man” each night at the Winter Garden Theatre!
