Stella Zawistowski's "Broadway Medleys" is 3.5/5 difficulty. This puzzle was edited by Francis Heaney.
Stella says: "When I originally submitted this theme idea, I had no idea that the lights would be out on Broadway for more than a year, and I hope we don't have too much longer to go before the return of live performances. Although the puzzle's theme is musicals, I want to give a special shout-out to a play-producing company that's the one I miss most -- Mint Theater, whose mission is reviving plays that have been unjustly forgotten. I hope to see many of you virtually at the 2021 ACPT, where I'll be running a room teaching the basic rules of cryptic crosswords. If you're a beginner or cryptic-curious, please stop by!"
