Today on Broadway: Friday, May 8, 2020 & Montego Glover

Long Island City’s The Secret Theatre closes its doors permanently after 10 years, “Between the Lines” postpones until Spring 2021, and, thankfully, plenty of streaming news and recommendations.

Plus, Matt chats with Tony nominee Montego Glover about what she’s up to during quarantine, the emotions of closing “All the Natalie Portmans” early during the shutdown, and more. 

“Today on Broadway” is a daily, Monday through Friday, podcast hitting the top theatre headlines of the day.
