Ask About Broadway
By Erik Piepenburg
Black Dog & Leventhal Publishers Ken Bloom and Frank Vlastnik, authors of “Broadway Musicals: The 101 Greatest Shows of All Time,” will answer your questions about Broadway history and spring’s new offerings.

The economy may be in the dumps, but the Great White Way continues to thrive. Broadway will host a slew of new openings, ranging from intimate plays to splashy revivals, many with celebrities (Jane Fonda, Susan Sarandon, Jeremy Irons, James Gandolfini) along for the ride.

Do these shows signal a creative bump for Broadway, or are they a new batch of vanity projects accompanied by wishful thinking? How do they compare to shows that opened in other times of economic woe? Could there be a great new Broadway show around the corner?

Through Sunday, Ken Bloom and Frank Vlastnik, authors of the newly revised “Broadway Musicals: The 101 Greatest Shows of All Time,” will be taking readers’ questions about Broadway seasons past, present and future. We ask that readers limit comments on this post to questions for our guests, using the comments box below.

Look for their answers on ArtsBeat starting Monday.
