21 Guns (feat. Green Day & the Cast of "American Idiot") - Single

If you haven’t checked out The Interval yet, I recommend it. They’ve only been around since August but they are doing some fantastic interviews with female theatrical professionals. I mean Susan Stroman, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Heidi Schreck, Christina Anderson, Lindsay Mendez, etc etc. It’s nice to see a site devoted solely to women in theater. Keep an eye on them.
I met them yesterday at maxamoo HQ- they recorded an interview that I believe will be up the same day as the Female Playwright Preview I did- and they were lovely. I’m looking forward to hearing more from them.

Or, you know, it starts underground and moves upward.
