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.

A Parallelogram: To Eat a Cookie and Watch Historical Reality Television In the Future. Sounds Fun, Right? By Ross It’s summertime in NYC and my battle with priorities is full on.
