Christina Morningside is a native New Yorker who grew up loving theater and writing for various periodicals on the very same subject for Playbill and Broadway World. Christina is an alumna from Columbia University in the City of New York and serves on several historic preservation committees in New York City. Christina began her journalism career at the New York Post as an intern and rose up through the ranks to become best reporter within five years, covering city politics. When Christina is not at a Broadway show she can be found anywhere outdoors, often in Vermont enjoying snowshoeing or skiing. She often says that what she lacks in empathy, she can make up with ecstasy with her joie de vivre being one of her most lauded assets. Christina has been a staff writer at New York Show Tickets since 2003.
