I’m a teacher. As such, I like to read what my students read, and so I read a lot of Young Adult books (also, let’s be honest, YA books are awesome). I’m also a Broadway enthusiast, which you probably realize if you read this blog or know me at all. Today, I am combining those two and making a list of the YA books I’d most like to see turned into Broadway musicals.Read More →

So this is going to be my last blog for a few weeks (I’ll be back). I’m leaving for vacation in a week, and things are going to be hectic. Feel free to follow me over on Twitter (@edohertyauthor) for all of the vacation fun. Where am I going, you ask? DISNEY WORLD. It’s pretty much my favorite place, and I am insanely excited. So for today’s blog, I thought that I would rank my five favorite Disney stage musicals.  For the record, I love them all. But these ones hold special places in my heart. (NOTE: I have NOT seen all of these onRead More →

Dear readers, I need your help. I’m currently brainstorming future blogs and novels. As you could probably figure out from this blog, I am a big Broadway fan. In fact, my first series, which will be out later this year, centers around people who work on Broadway. I’m also looking forward to doing more Broadway dreamcasts. So, for these future projects, I have a question for you. Would you rather see a hypothetical musical/dreamcast about: 1) The Kennedy family and their trials and tribulations 2) Expatriate writers in Paris in the 1920s (Hemingway, Stein, the Fitzgeralds, etc.) Comment below with what you’d like to see.Read More →

I’ve been thinking I’d like to do another musical dreamcast (for a project that will never be made except in my dreams).  When I do dreamcasts, I take a preexisting movie, stage show, or idea, and put in the Broadway actors and actresses that I think would be perfect in the lead roles.  I have a few ideas for my next one, and that is where you come in. Should it be…?Read More →

I’m going to do something a little bit different this time. This is going to be the first in my series of Broadway dreamcasts. I love Broadway, and I love dreamcasting, so I figure this is a perfect fit. Today’s dreamcast is Beauty and the Beast. I saw a touring production of it back when I was in junior high school, but more importantly, the movie happens to be my favorite. With all of the hubub about the remake, I thought I’d cast my dream Broadway performers in the roles I picture them in.Read More →

For my inaugural post on my new website, I decided I would talk about overtures. Overtures set the tone for the movie or the musical or whatever, just like I am (hoping) this post sets the tone for this website. Maybe. I don’t know. So I present to you: My favorite musical overtures (just three this time, no order, because I know there will be more).Read More →
