Leighton Meester wears a blue sweatshirt while taking her dogs for a walk on Friday (April 11) in New York City.

The 28-year-old actress is currently making her Broadway debut in the revival of the classic play Of Mice and Men and now we have production photos from the show!

Leighton is pictured alongside her co-star Chris O’Dowd in a crucial scene that happens in the second act of the play. Also starring in the show is James Franco.

“We have a lot of feminine energy, with our stage managers and people backstage,” Leighton told Newsday about being the only woman in the cast. “And the guys are ranch hands and hardened — but they’re also actors, so they’ve been super-kind and supportive. I never feel like the odd man out. Although that’s the point — I’m the only woman.”

Idina Menzel Sings Rent's 'Seasons of Love' Solo for Charity - WATCH NOW!

Idina Menzel reads the lyrics to “Seasons of Love” while singing the female solo to help benefit charity after a performance of her Broadway show If/Then on Saturday (April 12) in New York City.

During this time of the year, all the shows on Broadway raise money for a charity called Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and every show does something creative to get the audience members to shell out the big bucks.

Idina and her If/Then co-star Anthony Rapp both appeared in the original cast of the beloved musical Rent and they got the audience to donate $8,000 for an impromptu performance of “Seasons of Love” with the two stars doing the solos!

Carole King Surprises Cast at 'Beautiful' on Broadway, Sings at Curtain Call!

Carole King surprised the cast and the audience at a performance of the musical Beautiful on Thursday evening (April 3) at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre in New York City.

The new show is based on the legendary singer-songwriter’s life and she had not seen the show up until that night. She previously had attended a workshop performance, but left midway into the reading.

“She came to a reading and lasted halfway through,” her daughter Sherry told Playbill. “She said ‘I have to go.’ I said, ‘You’re just going? What do I tell all these people?’ She said, ‘Tell them it’s great. I can tell it’s great. But I can’t watch my life played out before me.’”

At the performance this week, Carole did not let the cast know she was coming and surprised them by walking on stage during the curtain call at the end of the show. She even joined the cast and audience in a performance of her song “You’ve Got a Friend”!
