Exclusive Photos! Head Backstage at Broadway's Soaring Ne...

Photographer Jenny Anderson (who captures Tony Awards parties like no one else in town) brings BroadwayBox backstage at this year's hottest shows for an exclusive look at Broadway casts getting ready to take the stage. First up is the new hit musical Come From Away, which tells the true story of 7,000 people who found themselves stranded in a small Newfoundland town during 9/11 and how the town tirelessly worked to make them feel at home.

Sharon says she loves this discontinued lipstick because it doesn’t come off during all the kissing scenes. Luckily for her, they were sent an entire case for the run.
