B Equals Broadway in the Big Apple

This week’s Buzz is all about the letter “B!” Broadway and the Big Apple!

If you’re going up to New York this week, it’s exciting. The Tony Awards have all been given out, and there’s a few picks of my own that I recommend. On Monday night, go to Birdland. It’s Legend’s Radio’s New York Minute, Jim Caruso and Billy Stritch at the helm and a Cast Party! All the top stars from Broadway come and share their talent – not to be missed!

At the top of everybody’s list is Hello Dolly this season with Bette Midler. A tough ticket, but a must-see. A few new shows on the pike that everyone’s talking about: Natasha Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 starring Josh Groban, and Come From Away, which is absolutely heartwarming. A revival that everyone is raving about is Miss Saigon – it’s absolutely phenomenal. Get your tickets for any of these fantastic shows online at www.broadway.com.

It's a hot season for Broadway!

A personal favorite: War Paint, starring Christine Ebersole and Patti LuPone. Christine’s been a friend of mine for 35 years. She’s won two Tony Awards! Patti LuPone is also a major star on Broadway and a Tony Award winner. They play Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein – with set designs, and costumes, and voices like that it’s not to be missed!

Everybody is talking about the dramatic plays this season. A Doll’s House Part 2 with Laurie Metcalf and Chris Cooper and we have Oslo, about the Middle East Peace talks of 1993. We also have The Little Foxes, Lillian Hellman’s play, starring Cynthia Nixon and Laura Linney on alternate nights. And, we have Kevin Kline and Noel Coward in Present Laughter.

Fabulous shows to catch this season on Broadway.

My last recommendation is Dear Evan Hansen. It’s at the top of just about everyone’s list. There are many other fabulous plays on Broadway this season- get a ticket to a show if you can!

It’s a sizzling summer in Manhatten. Remember that as I’m buzzing around the country, the letter “B” is my favorite letter, but I have all the letters, A through Z, as part of my Bonnie Roseman BLT Collection of accessories. I have your favorite letter too, dipped in silver or gold, which can make a fabulous necklace or belt – a great addition to any wardrobe.

Email bonnie@bonnieroseman.com to purchase your favorite letter or initials.

Keep checking in with me this summer as I buzz around the country, at LegendsRadio.com and bonnieroseman.com. I’ll be giving you recommendations for where to go, what to see, and what to wear when you get there!
