Villains of Broadway

Every story has its knight in shiny armor. The prince that slays the dragon, and saves the princess, rushes the bad guy and gets the fair lady from the train tracks, the one that saves the day! Raoul saves Christine, Hamilton gets all the fame and power, people all over Oz love Glinda, Simba becomes king, Cady dates Aaron. The list goes on. We understand them and we love them, but what about the bad guys? Regina? Scar? Jafar? Aaron Burr? The Wizard? The General from “The Book of Mormon”? It is not uncommon to sympathize with some of them, and quite often to even love them.

We in BroadwayPass are huge sports fans! And when we can’t support our favorite teams’ live we love to go to some cool sports bars. Like Printer’s Alley.
