Idina Menzel Helps Empower Young Girls Through Summer Arts Camp — NY1 VIDEO: Whether she's "defying gravity" or "letting it go," Tony Award winner Idina Menzel has scaled the heights of stardom on stage and screen. But every summer for the last several years, she's been working to realize another kind of dream: helping to empower young girls through the arts.

Sneak Peek at New Broadway Play ‘Holiday Inn’ — NY1 VIDEO: The inn is almost open. The 1942 Academy Award winning film "Holiday Inn" is now a Broadway musical.

Broadway’s Best Head to Ellis Island for ‘Ragtime’ Special — NY1 VIDEO: "Ragtime" sings again, but this time far from the bright lights of Broadway.

NY1's Frank DiLella has more from the event in this On Stage report.

‘Cats’ Returns to Broadway — NY1 VIDEO: Some familiar musical felines have set up their junkyard at Broadway's Neil Simon Theatre. For this On Stage report, NY1's Frank DiLella attended the opening night of the first ever revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Cats."

All-Female, All-Japanese Production of 'Chicago' to Star at Lincoln Center Festival — In this On Stage report, we go behind the scenes of the all-female, all-Japanese take on the Tony winning revival of "Chicago."

Tony Award Winner Laura Benanti Talks 'She Loves Me' — Tony Award winner for the 2008 revival of "Gypsy" - Laura Benanti returns to Broadway this season in the Roundabout Theatre Company's re-staging of "She Loves Me". NY1's Frank DiLella recently caught up with Benanti to chat about her 2016 Tony nominated turn as Amalia Balash in the 1964 classic.

Who’s Next: Andy Señor, Jr. — WHY HE MATTERS: For the first time in over 50 years, a commercial American production was performed in Havana, Cuba. That musical was Rent, and Andy Señor, Jr. was at the helm.

'Hamilton' Leads Pack of Broadway Nominees for Tony Awards — Broadway's brightest stars will be honored Sunday at the Tony Awards. The smash hit hip-hop musical "Hamilton" leads the packs with a record 16 nominations, including Best Musical. Its composer and star, Lin-Manuel Miranda, was also nominated for Best Book, Best Music and Lyrics, and Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical.

‘Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall’ Celebrates Judy Garland 1961 Debut at Carnegie — Over the course of its 125-year history, Carnegie Hall has played host to some memorable nights - including back in 1961 when Judy Garland took center stage for a solo concert. Decades later, singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright returns to the hall for an encore performance of that celebrated evening.

Duncan Sheik: Revival, Classic, or New - He's Done It! — A bona fide theater artist since winning two Tony Awards in 2007, singer-songwriter Duncan Sheik is having his busiest season yet. His revival of Spring Awakening opened to critical acclaim on the Main Stem earlier this season, he composed a score for a production of Brecht's Mother Courage and Her Children Off-Broadway at Classic Stage Company in January - and now, his highly anticipated American Psycho is about to have its North American premiere!
