This is Broadway! We were thrilled to be at the historic unveiling of sculptor Alison Saar's Lorraine Hansberry statue in Duffy Square on Thursday. The ceremony featured remarks from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage, whose work we're proud to represent through our imprint Dramatists Play Service.

The 2022-23 national tour of Saar's statue marks the launch of The Lorraine Hansberry Initiative, which aims to raise public awareness of the full breadth of Hansberry's work and teachings. The Initiative includes a scholarship fund to help support female and nonbinary dramatic writers of color currently attending graduate school by covering their living expenses with the goal of giving them the financial freedom to follow in Lorraine's footsteps by pursuing their craft.

TAKE ME OUT, like many titles up for this year's awards, tells the important story of oppression many LGBTQIA+ athletes experience just as much now as they did when the show was first staged 20 years ago.

For National Museum Day, we're spotlighting George C. Wolfe's THE COLORED MUSEUM.

Tony Award®-winning actor Billy Porter, who directed Huntington Theatre's 2015 production, had this to say about the show: "THE COLORED MUSEUM came into my life at a very formative time. I was a teenager longing for more than just one type of 'Black' representation in the creative storytelling landscape. George Wolfe's unique and irreverent voice of inclusion ignited the fire of possibility inside of me and set me on a creative journey that included stretching myself beyond what, up until then, I thought was possible for a little Black gay boy from the ghetto. I am forever grateful."

Planning your holiday programming? Try CHRISTMAS OVER THE TAVERN! This crowd-pleaser sold out its entire month-long premiere before it even opened.

Meet the Pazinskis, a family of six living over a saloon in lower-middle class Buffalo, NY, in 1959. Christmas isn't very merry for them — Dad is going through a midlife depression and refuses to buy a tree, mom wants the happy man she married returned to her, sister Clarissa is threatening to expel brother Rudy for performing a blasphemous one-man nativity scene where he plays all the characters as Hollywood celebrities, and the two teenagers, sensing their parents’ discord, are worried that this may be their last Christmas together as a family. Through comic songs and dream sequences, the Pazinskis come to a deeper understanding of what it means to be a family on this most stressful of holidays.

In this wildly entertaining and charming musical comedy, six teenagers from a Canadian chamber choir take one last ride on a rollercoaster that changes the course of each of their lives forever.

"Over the course of seven decades, a lot of rain will fall. But there's one cinematic rainstorm sequence that will never fall into obscurity, thanks to the exuberant hoofing and euphoric singing of Gene Kelly, the star and co-director of 'Singin' in the Rain,' which went into wide release on April 11th, 1952, seventy years ago."

Tune in to this month's episode of "Cineversary" to learn why "Singin' in the Rain" remains a bonified classic 70 years after its premiere at bit.ly/BL70YearsSingin, then explore WHAT A GLORIOUS FEELING!, a new musical that brings to life the little-known behind-the-scenes story of the making of this timeless film at bit.ly/BLGloriousFeeling. ☔️
