Hai, Nerds! Time once again to take a look at this week’s ten nerdy news bites!

10. Ant-Man & The Wasp?

Congrats to Sharon Stone! She has joined the MCU family! I’m sure Sebastian Stan is happy about this. (wink wink) There are a few theories of who she could be playing, my favorite comes from The Real Stan Lee, suggesting she may be the original Wasp. What are your thoughts nerds?

I was super excited for Broadway HD when it launched. Now we have word that She Loves Me will be the first Broadway show to be live streamed June 30th! The show will be available the following week, as well. See here for more details. This is the future!

1. Orlando

It has been a very difficult week in the news. Our hearts and thoughts are with Orlando. But amidst the sadness and horror, it’s overwhelming to witness the outpouring of love and compassion from around the world. Broadway’s biggest stars are coming together to raise their voices in support of the victims and those wounded. More information on the single (set to be released June 20th) can be found here on the PlayBill website.

Love is love is love is love is love…
