In this exclusive interview with the DCPA's NewsCenter, theatre legend and WICKED composer Stephen Schwartz discusses the ongoing need to empower girls and women. "Turn on the TV, or go online, and there is story after story of the difficulties women and girls face just trying to be on an equal level in our world," he said. "Worldwide, this is a major issue." Schwartz says he relates most to the character of Elphaba, and he embraces the idea that we all have the green girl inside of us. 
WICKED The Musical plays through July 5.

We got five minutes on the phone with Tony Awards winner Annaleigh Ashford today as she was riding in a New York taxi on her way to the airport. Ashford, 29, was honored with theatre's highest prize Sunday for her widely praised role as the eccentric ballet dancer Essie opposite James Earl Jones in the Broadway revival of "You Can't Take It With You." Listen in as Ashford says, among other things, that one of her most special post-win encounters last night was talking with fellow Colorado nominee, Beth Malone.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, composer and star of the big-buzz, Broadway-bound hip-hop musical bio, "Hamilton," delivered a powerful keynote speech to the nation's top theatre presenters, producers and theatre owners attending a Broadway League conference May 12.

To mark yesterday's closing of "One Night in Miami," we offer these final thoughts that cast, creatives and audience members either have sent us or have posted on social media. "You may have just changed the trajectory of the lives of these young men (who saw the play),” said Ty Jones of the Classical Theatre of Harlem.
