Phillipa Soo

Starring Phillipa Soo from "Hamilton." Are you dead yet?
The night before the Tony Awards were announced, Phillipa Soo was feeling a bit anxious and unable to fall asleep. She planned to get up at the crack of dawn. But as the Hamilton actress shared, "I woke up to my lovely fiancé (Steven Pasquale) saying 'good morning my Tony Nominee' -- that's how I found out."
There goes another year in New York with magnificent stage performances. Some performers in the past year have excelled in exceptional storytelling far more than others. A season full of diverse characters ranging from female revolutionaries, sexually curious teenagers, a glittering tornado exit, underappreciated siblings, a one-man band, a Latin pop star, a ton of toe-tapping music, and star-turning performances. As we start ramping up to 2016, I look back at my top 10 theatrical performances of 2015.
The show has been impeccably staged by Thomas Kail, Miranda's colleague from In the Heights, with choreography from that show's Andy Blankenbuehler. For theatergoers who admired but didn't love In the Heights, be advised that Hamilton is nothing like it.
Which is a great reason to take advantage of all the amazing cultural corners of New York City that breathe life into memories of time past. Put on your coat, pull out your gloves, and enjoy the history that this city has to offer.
The evening is part of a series of special events to commemorate the Vineyard Theatre's 30th Anniversary this year. Tickets
Call it "interactive." Call it "immersive." Call it whatever contemporary term you will. Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet
