Assignment Overview: Select a play that is currently running on Broadway and research some information about it.
1-go to www.broadway.com where you will find a listing for each show on Broadway. Spend some time looking around the site and pick a musical or play that seems interesting to you. On the page for each show, you will find a variety of information, including a brief description of the story, a list of cast and creative team, and reviews of the play. Feel free to use other sites to gain additional information for your research of your chosen show, if necessary; broadway.com is just a starting point.

*What is the play about? What kind of play is it? (musical/straight play; comedy/drama; family show/adults only; etc.)
*How long has the play been running on Broadway? How has it been received?
*What makes this play unique from others on Broadway?
*Has anyone famous been involved in the play, now or in previous productions? This could be someone in the play, or the director, playwright, designer, choreographer, etc.
