2. Speaking of major milestones…

It was a lovely Valentine’s Day for Wicked, which officially surpassed Rent to become the 10th longest running show in Broadway history. It played it’s 5,124th performance to hit the milestone and is still going strong.




3. Broadway-Bound Frozen will make world premiere in Colorado
The cold never bothered Colorado anyway! Frozen will play its out-of-town tryout at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts in August 2017. Directed by Alex Timbers, the previously announced production is scheduled to hit Broadway in Spring 2018, with casting, theater and dates to be announced later.


4. Incase you haven’t heard…Hamilton won the Grammy.
After a (pretty awesome) live performance on the Grammys, Hamilton took the award for Best Musical Theater Album…on President’s Day at that. The record beat out Fun Home, An American in Paris, The King & I and Something Rotten!
