Watch 12 artists at work, from an opera singer and a subway dancer to Princess Nokia and Kelli O'Hara.
Every spring, we bring you our annual New York Issue. Last year, we featured 24 hours of romance. This time, we sought out a dozen performers who show what it takes to be a star.
A queer, feminist rapper.  
A percussionist who is the star of every stage he's ever been on. 
A self-taught sword-swallower. 
A subway dancer who dazzles commuters. 
A veteran Broadway star. 
A dancer who gets ready to play 14 roles, night after night.
Put on your headphones, turn on the sound and let us take you through New York, the greatest stage town on earth.
