Broadway just seemed destined to light up social media. As a performance art, it just lends itself to the medium so well. Twitter has no shortage of Broadway-related profiles. The only problem is, how do you sift through the ever growing number of personalities so your feed doesn’t overwhelm you? We have you covered. We’ve boiled down the Broadway Twitter universe into an essential 25 to follow.


Audra McDonald is a Broadway superstar and her Twitter profile offers some great insight into her life as both an everyday person and a Broadway actress. You can look forward to daily tweets that center around Broadway shows, charity events, everyday humor, and everything Audra. Plus, she is quite interactive so you might be able to get a response or a retweet; a neat treat for anyone who loves the actress as much as I do.
