Broadway Crossword by Blog #1: The Answers

Congratulations to all of you who finished the puzzle!  I hope you had as much fun doing it as I did making it.  And thank you to all of you who took the time to write!  About half of you who wrote thought it was too easy, the other half too difficult... I guess I'll try to mix it up a little more next time.  (Next time will be in March, I think.)

Look for a new game in the next week or so... Six Degrees of Broadway!
