Is there some sort of online repository where I can find photographs of the sets of Broadway productions? [more inside]

My partner is a huge, huge theater buff, particularly musicals, and he is going away to work for the next three months directing shows at a performing arts camp. Last summer, before he left, he hid little love notes for me to discover in the apartment, and it was just the sweetest gesture ever. I want to return the favor to him this year, and sneak my own notes into his luggage before he leaves and in his cabin when I visit. I decided that it would be perfect to use romantic quotes from show tunes - but I really don't know anything about theater other than what I've picked up from osmosis. I could google for Broadway quotes, but they wouldn't have any significance to me. So I'm hoping that if I give some ideas of what he likes and dislikes, the hivemind could make some thoughtful suggestions. [more inside]

I would really love to truly enjoy the magic and beauty of opera, but I'm a complete novice. While I have enjoyed Broadway style musicals since I was a child, opera has escaped me. Are there any books, specific productions or recordings I should read, watch or hear? [more inside]

My girlfriend loves musicals. Help me choose a show to get tickets to for her birthday in August.
I'm new to Atlanta, and I also don't know much about musicals. I'm in need of some help and suggestions on where and for what to get tickets. I'm open to any ideas those with knowledge of these things (musicals and Atlanta) may have.

What is the musical term for songs that feature overlapping or simultaneous verses? The only two examples that I can think of to illustrate what I'm talking about are "All for the Best" from Godspell and Irving Berlin's "You're in Love." Anyone ever come across a list of songs of this type, specifically songs from the world of musical theater?

Is there a good resource (online or not) to find out if a given theatrical production is running, anytime in the near future, anywhere in the country (USA/Canada)? [more inside]
