Michael Kape or The Grumpy Olde Guy® (as he’s also known in All Things Broadway) has been a Broadway baby since he was in utero and hasn’t stopped since—many, many, many decades later. He has acted, directed, produced, designed (sets, costumes, props, sound, lighting), coached, been a dramaturg, run a theatre company, invested in Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, and even a been a produced playwright. He spent seven years on the Dark Side as a theatre, dance, and opera critic and even published a weekly theatre newspaper in Atlanta. He has been writing professionally (i.e., getting paid for it) since he was 14. In his checkered past, he’s also worked in magazine and book distribution, owned an advertising agency, co-owned a card and gift store, retired—and come out of retirement. His personal record for the most shows seen in a single year is 240 (when he lived in New York), but since moving to Palm Springs, CA he’s had to scale that back to a mere 35. He’s been bopped on the head (accidentally) by Stephen Sondheim and has a contribution on his Assassins wall in Connecticut. Currently, he is desperately seeking a life; if you know where he can find one, please let him know soon.

Despite still being in Drama School he has worked professionally as an actor/singer/dancer before and is especially passionate about teaching and coaching as well.

Taylor Lockhart writes blogs generally about the Broadway and Off-Broadway musicals we all love. You may know him as the creator of such classics like “Should there be a Shrek 2 musical” and the articles that he’s actually proud of. He’s currently a high schooler studying all the aspects of theatre along with all the other useless stuff the government makes me learn and neglecting his math homework to write about the racial issues addressed in West Side Story for All Things Broadway! Check back in every month and sometimes twice a month to see whether he’ll discuss something interesting and educational or just rank all 10 Nunsense musicals from Nunsee to Nundon’t.

Although not studying theatre (blasphemy?!) she plays the guitar, directs, acts and sings - in 2019 she'll even be representing England in the ESU's International Public Speaking Competition!! Once a month, if she isn't drowning in homework, she'll take a fresh perspective on your favourite aspectsof theatre: from gender to pantomimes and all her experiences in between.

Jonathan Fong:  Pretty much just your average theatre nerd, except for one small peculiarity - I'm from the Macau SAR, about 8000 miles away from New York and the Broadway. Doesn't stop me, though - I'm here to nerd out with all of you regardless while providing an international perspective on theatre to broaden all of our horizons. In the immortal words of Alan Menken - "whatever happens, let's begin!"
