T. Michelle Murphy is the Copy Chief of Metro US and the Theater Editor for Metro NY. She comes to journalism from a background in copywriting/copyediting for marketing agencies and SEO content writing/editing for the Web. She has a life-long love of theater that brought her to New York City after earning a B.A. in English & Theatre from Northeastern University. Presently she is an Associate Artist (Playwriting) with UglyRhino Productions, Inc. And if you really must know, the "T." stands for "Tracie," her given first name. ;)
Metro interviews Robin Amos Kahn, one half of the writing team behind the new off-Broadway play, “Scrambled Eggs.” It’s running through May 11 at Theater Row’s Beckett Theatre (www.scrambledeggstheplay.com).
“Here Lies Love” is a musical telling the life story of fashion icon Imelda Marcos. The Public Theater welcomes audience members to dance along, instead of just sitting and watching quietly in the dark.
It’s “Hard” to launch a brand-new musical on Broadway these days. “Hands on a Hardbody,” closing on Broadway Saturday after 28 performances, is yet another lesson that theater-goers get exactly what they pay for — or don’t.
