A ticket to see your favorite Broadway star may be elusive, but in the digital era, the world is still a stage.

Some Broadway powerhouses know this and keep their fans riveted on social media with their daily musings and candid pictures. These Broadway babies will make your timeline absolutely Tony-worthy.

1. Laura Benanti

Not only is one of the funniest people on Broadway wowing audiences as Eliza in My Fair Lady, but Laura Benanti also happens to be precisely why Twitter was invented. Benanti often uses the platform to announce when she'll be out of the show or to respond to fans, but she has some of the funniest tweets to ever see a screen.

Audra McDonald


Six time Tony Winner Audra McDonald is actually perfect, so why wouldn't she be brilliant at sharing her life on social media? From showing off her baby bump to urging her followers to vote and bringing attention to vital social issues, McDonald's Instagram is a rallying cry in the form of a velvety soprano.

3. Lin-Manuel Miranda

Lin-Manuel Miranda is the Bob Ross of Twitter. You know he's a genius, but his musings still make you feel valuable and motivated. Miranda's legendary good morning/good night tweets are so inspiring that they're now available in book form!

4. Patti Murin

She may be playing a Princess on Broadway in Frozen, but Patti Murin is super relatable. From awkward interactions at a coffee shop to adventures at The Container Store, her feed is almost as entertaining as her performances.

5. Betty Buckley

This star is leading the tour for the wildly popular Hello, Dolly! revival, but she still finds time to post about what she's up to, offering thoughts on politics, motivational quotes, and moments backstage while she's on the road.
