Recently Andrew Norlen, the creator of the book When The Light Are Bright Again, joined iHeartRadio Broadway's SJ Arnegger to chat about the upcoming release of this project that was started during the Broadway shutdown due to the ongoing pandemic. When The Lights Are Bright Again weaves more than 200 letters from Broadway theater veterans, devout theatergoers, teenage dreamers aching for their day in the spotlight, long-time ushers, designers, creatives, and countless other arts workers. The book features a breathtaking photo series by Broadway photographer Matthew Murphy, who's work is specialized within the performing arts industry.
Not only has the creation of this book allowed the theater community to grieve and express themselves in a new way, but for every copy purchased, a portion of the profits will directly benefit The Actors Fund. This book will continue to help support arts workers to thrive and maintain financial stability for decades to come with every copy sold.
