The Drama Book Store

The Tony Award-winning Drama Book Shop has been helping theatre artists for 99 years. Now, it needs their help, after a recent water pipe burst causing extensive damage to the shop and half of its inventory.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, the composer and star of Broadway’s Hamilton, took to Twitter and YouTube, making a plea to his quarter of a million followers. Miranda did several work shops for In the Heights In this store. I know because I was at most of them.

Together, stars of stage and shop employees will gather for a night of stories and songs to celebrate and benefit the legendary Drama Book Shop. The evening will feature many of the all-star Broadway talent who frequent the shop on a daily basis… to be announced soon! For more information on the shop, please visit
