About Steven Ross
Steven Ross, main critic for Frontmezzjunkies.com is a self-proclaimed theatre junkie, traveloholic, and fitness addict, I have been writing about theatre and posting my reviews for years about plays and musicals on Broadway, Off-Broadway and beyond. In NYC, Chicago, Toronto, Washington, DC, London, and anywhere else I find myself sitting in the front mezzanine. The best seats in the house, in my opinion.

The Review: NTLive’s Cat on a Hot Tin Roof By Ross It’s moments like this when I wish I could magically transport myself to London, England every so often for a night of theatre, in the same way I get myself to a Broadway or Off Broadway theater. A quick little subway ride to the West […]

#frontmezzjunkies sat down with Brandon Haagenson and David Merten, two of the three stars of Afterglow, the play, for a talk about relationships, hope, sex apps, nudity, surrogate babies, and the hit off-Broadway play that keeps getting extended and extended.
Shows to be Excited for: Spring 2018: The Who’s Who Who’s Coming to Broadway. By Ross Bernadette Peters is on her way back to Broadway. And I can’t wait.
