Around The U.S.A. in 80 Musicals: Part I: Northeast

With the success of last year's Around the World in 80 Musicals (and thank you for your support on that!), we are happy to bring you a new series: Around the U.S.A. in 80 Musicals! Over the next few months, we'll take a look at musicals that take place entirely or in part in each of the 50 states. Well, not quite 50 - there are FOUR states, believe it or not, where we couldn't find a show where they are a locale.
