His daughter, Gillian, an associate professor of theatre education at the University of Northern Colorado, writes about her father: "Something I’ve learned from him all these years is to choose stories that move us in a big way: Stories that must be told. Maybe it’s the Irish in us…” In 2011, Tom McNally was awarded the Colorado Theatre Guild's Henry Award for Lifetime Achievement.

After 11 years, Cody Lyman still loves Defending the Caveman, which continues at least through Aug 23 at the Garner Galleria Theatre. 'It's a show about how we love each other," he says. "It’s simple and funny and profound.” 
He adds: "Whenever I return to The Cave, it’s like putting on a favorite sweatshirt. It’s comfy - and smelly - in all the right places.”

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.

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."
