Happy Pride, my friends!! Hope you’re celebrating with rainbow flavors of piragua because this week’s guest is Bill Sherman!

He’s a composer, producer, arranger and orchestrator, which led to him becoming a Tony, Emmy and Grammy award winner.

If you watched the FLS Documentary, you might remember UTK saying, ANDDD BILL!” Which always makes me think … And Bill, And Juliet, And Peggy… there’s something there!
It won’t be long now – In The Heights premieres at Tribeca tonight and hits theaters and HBO Max on June 10th… the same day The Drama Book Shop opens — the former location being where they rehearsed In The Heights! You could say it’s bound to be a #BitOfADay.
Thanks to all the SHOtreons and special shout-out to the SHOstopper and SHOnanigans levels.

Broadway SHOs are announcing their new opening dates. While we’re excited to see everyone get back to work, we must stay vigilant in our calls to make theatre a safe space for everyone involved. We need reports on how companies will be enacting anti-racist, anti-transphobia, anti-abelism and anti-abuse work. We can’t go back, we must move forward.
Wear a mask, get your vaccine, be safe and let’s take care of ourselves.
We’ll see you at the SHO
