Suzy Evans is the editor of NewYorkTheatreGuide.com and LondonTheatre.co.uk. She has previously worked as a senior editor at Backstage, managing editor at American Theatre, and executive editor of Broadway Style Guide. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Hollywood Reporter, Billboard, Variety, The Washington Post, and more. She is also a co-author of the book Dear Evan Hansen: Through the Window, the official behind-the-scenes volume on the Tony-winning show.
Growing up in California, she always had a penchant for theatre, appearing in many community theatre, church, and school plays, but after discovering that she didn't quite have the talent or disposition for performing, she pivoted her efforts to documenting the medium. She studied English and Theatre at the University of California — Los Angeles, where she also served as the theatre editor for The Daily Bruin. After college, she pursued a Master's in Journalism at Northwestern University.
She's enjoys connecting with performers and creatives and writing about the industry, and some of her notable recent interview subjects include Kelli O'Hara, Christian Borle, Joshua Henry, Jessie Mueller, Heidi Schreck, Laura Benanti, Leslie Odom Jr., Katrina Lenk, Adrienne Warren, and more. While it's impossible to pick a favorite, some of her favourite West End shows in recent years include SIX, Company, Follies at the National Theatre, Come From Away, Tina, and Dear Evan Hansen.
