Our Team

About Stars in The Night

We are passionate fans of theatre and are dedicated to covering theatre from the perspective of fans involved in theatre as a regular part of their lives. We are dedicated to calling out the industry when it fails to serve its highest ideals, including racial and sexual identity, as well as covering up the misdeeds of its stars who prey on others.

In short, Stars in The Night is a resource for the aspiring theatre performer during every stage of the theatre production as well as an ongoing call to action to further social progress in Broadway.

We are not financed by anyone inside the Broadway industry and have ruffled way too many feathers to be cozy with any Broadway mega-players. This way, we can give you honest coverage of the industry that desperately needs some.

Stars in The Night has a writing staff committed to its ideals that publishes work regularly. Stars in The Night will also publish guest editorials on any theatre topic from individuals. If you would like to have a guest editorial published, please submit to [email protected] Guest editorials are published based on the discretion of the editorial staff.
