A note from Alex regarding his trivia item
My sister's former NYC roommate was an understudy for the Broadway revival of Hedwig during the 2014-2015 run. During my summer trip to NYC, my sister got us tickets to the show, which at that point was starring Taye Diggs. Earlier in the run, Hedwig was played by Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall, John Cameron Mitchell, and Darren Criss. This was my first Broadway show, and it was awesome. Although my sister's roommate, Shannon, wasn't performing this specific night, she was able to take us backstage and on the stage after the show.
In 2014, this show won the following Tony Awards: Best Revival of A Musical, Best Leading Actor in a Musical (Neil Patrick Harris), Best Lighting Design of a Musical, and Best Featured Actress in a Musical (Lena Hall).

When I found this picture to add to this roadmap, I realized how skinny I used to be. Those were the days.
