Hi all! Not much to blog about today, so I thought I’d let you know about my brand new Instagram. I’m going to use it to post nerdy things. Like this ridiculous picture:
With this ridiculous caption: “I can’t get married, I’m in tech.” (It’s from the vert short Broadway-themed TV show Smash.)

With Infinity War being released this week, I am in complete Avengers mode. I am so excited and so nervous about what’s going to happen! So for today’s blog, I thought I would combine two of my favorite things: Broadway and The Avengers. Without further ado, here’s who should play some of The Avengers in a hypothetical Broadway musical:

Sometimes I feel a little lost when it comes to my writing. I sit down and look at the blank page and nothing comes out. That’s when I put on music. I have a go-to list of songs that always, no matter what, puts me in the mood to write. Here are a few of them:

I’m in the midst of writing the climax of my current novella, and I have about a million ideas for what I want to write next. So here are a few. Which would you like to see first?
- Rockstar romance – A little diddy about a straight-laced girl who falls in love with a rockstar, after swearing she never would.
- The president’s daughter – I want to start a series about the daughters of a president. This one takes place between the president and her father’s adviser. I am planning on it being a Christmas romance. If I start now, it might be ready this Christmas.
- The prince and the commoner – With the royal wedding coming up, this one seems all the rage. And I’m excited for it all.
So what do you think?
Like most of the Broadway community, I was pretty hyped up about NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar this week. And it was good! I’m hoping they film all musicals as concerts from here on out. I really enjoyed it (and I’ve never seen JCS before – what?). There are so many musicals I’d like to see them put on as live TV specials, that I think they could do something really special with. Here are just a few:

Later this week, I’m going to Boston. It’s not an entirely new city. I went there once when I was 12, but I can barely remember it. So for all intents and purposes, this is going to feel like a brand new city to me. And I’m excited, because it’s been a long time since I’ve experienced a new city. Here’s what I’m looking forward to:

I’ve just started teaching Hamilton for the year (using much of the musical, duh), and it’s really gotten me thinking about historical musicals. I love these pieces that bring music and humanity to real-life people. In addition to Hamilton, there are pieces like Anastasia and 1776, that I love. And I would love to see more musicals that tell real stories. Here are a few possible historical figures I’d like to see musicals about:
