WNBC’s local information and lifestyle digital channel, New York Nonstop, will air a marathon of In the Wings, a new series focused on Broadway.  The marathon will begin tonight just before midnight and will continue until Sunday at 1 p.m., ahead of the 65th Annual Tony Awards airing that evening on WCBS/Channel 2.

In the Wings visits Broadway and Off-Broadway theaters, featuring content from backstage and around the theater district. The program also includes profiles of many Broadway and Off-Broadway stars, providing an inside look at their dressing rooms and favorite New York spots.

Tony nominees Whoopi Goldberg and Judith Light are among those showcased.  Viewers get a sneak peek into this year’s hottest new shows. Episodes offer a “backstage access” to many Broadway shows including How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying, Word of Mouth: Sister Act, and Wonderland.
