Jan Simpson, Ashley Steves, and Matt Tamanini discuss the 2019-2020 season of New York Theatre. They talk about the plays and musicals that have been confirmed or are rumored for Broadway bows this season, as well as the most exciting shows that will be playing Off-Broadway. They also talk about larger issues confronting the theatrical community, including the rise of jukebox musicals, the lack of musical revivals on Broadway, the need for more women as writers and directors on Broadway, and more.
