Lee Rodriguez originally hails from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and developed his love for writing during his undergraduate experience at the University of Pittsburgh, where he studied Journalism. While attending school, he began writing weekly articles for the university student newspaper, The Pitt News. His favorite subject to write about was sports, but that changed one fateful day when he was introduced to Broadway theatre during a week-long road trip to New York. From that point forward, Lee knew he wanted to work in theatre journalism. Once he graduated with a BA in Journalism, he moved to New York City to join the industry and increase his Broadway knowledge. Lee’s favorite type of shows are jukebox musicals, being particularly fond of American Idiot and Jersey Boys, and he loves to dissect show subject matter and understand what makes them successful and what makes them fail.
