3. Douglas Lyons

If you haven’t heard the world premiere recording of Beau from the songwriting team of Lyons & Pakchar, then you are missing out on one of the most anticipated new musicals of the season!


4. Dominique Morriseau

We Ain’t Too Proud to admit how much we love the musings of the Detroit darling whose play Skeleton Crew is headed to Broadway next season.


5. Young Jean Lee

Broadway’s first Asian-American Female Playwright has used her social media voice to continue to fight for social justice and we couldn’t possibly stan any harder.

The Pulitzer prize winner for A Strange Loop keeps us in the “loop” with his thought-provoking takes on all things culture.

The undisputed queens of #musicaltheater TikTok went viral with their songs from the Bridgerton musical and we still haven’t gotten over this cover from the composers and Darren Criss!

9. Drew Gasparini

On his new podcast Now We’re Talking, the self-proclaimed “goofball” tricks his famous friends into having an unscripted, unstructured, and slightly unhinged discussion about things you can’t find about them on Google.


10. Joey Contreras

The wunderkind just released highlights from his new musical In Pieces, an ode to his relationships of the past 12 years, but his followers have been following the journey from page to stage up close through his social media channels.
