2020 Tony Nominees Reflect on the Moments They Can't Wait to Share With Broadway Audiences Again | Playbill

"I think I’m most looking forward to my first entrance, where Zidler welcomes the audience to the theatre. Zidler invites them in like an old friend. No matter their shape, size, color, orientation, or occupation, everyone is welcome. I love that. And I think we’re all starved for that special place of inclusion where, as Harold Zidler says, 'all your dreams come true.' When I first see the audience’s beautiful, beaming faces, I may just burst into tears of joy." - Danny Burstein

Artists from Moulin Rouge!, Jagged Little Pill, Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, and more look forward to the reopening of Broadway theatres.

When the Critic Is Also the Star. And the Audience.

"Could we get a volunteer up here?"

That’s not an invitation theater fans are likely to hear from an actor on a physical stage anytime soon, but it is the beguiling come-on from a small flock of experimental productions happening right now — online, over the phone and even in person.
