Kristin Chenoweth Announces Her Big Return to Broadway!

Kristin Chenoweth will be making her big return to Broadway next year in the revival of the classic musical On the Twentieth Century!

The Tony-winning actress will be starring alongside Peter Gallagher in the show, which will begin previews on February 12, 2015 and have an official opening night of March 12.

Here is the show’s synopsis: Bankrupt theater producer Oscar Jaffee (Gallagher) embarks on a madcap mission to cajole glamorous Hollywood starlet Lily Garland (Chenoweth) into playing the lead in his new, non-existent epic drama. But is the train ride long enough to reignite the spark between these former lovers, create a play from scratch, and find the money to get it all the way to Broadway?

Pictured inside: Kristin chatting on her cell phone while out and about on Wednesday (May 14) in New York City. More Here! »

'Bridges of Madison County' Broadway Musical Closing May 18

The acclaimed new musical The Bridges of Madison County will be closing its doors for good on Broadway later this month.

It was sadly just announced that the show will be ending its Broadway run on May 18 after four months on the Great White Way.

The musical was based on the beloved book that inspired the movie of the same name back in 1995. The show stars Kelli O’Hara and Steven Pasquale as two people who are caught between decision and desire, as a chance encounter becomes a second chance at so much more. Robert (Pasquale), a photographer, wanders into the life of housewife Francesca (O’Hara) for four days in the 1960s.

The Bridges of Madison County received four Tony nominations this week including Best Leading Actress in a Musical for Kelli and Best Original Score for Jason Robert Brown‘s absolutely beautiful music.

We highly recommend going to see the show before it closes as its one of our favorites from this season and deserves more love than it has been receiving! Head on over to BridgesofMadisonCountyMusical.com for more information and to get your tickets.

Neil Patrick Harris Prepared His Kids for Seeing Him in Drag

Neil Patrick Harris wears a hat while exiting the Ed Sullivan Theatre following an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday (April 24) in New York City.

The 40-year-old actor is currently playing the title role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway and you can see all of the production shots in the gallery below!

Neil‘s fiance David Burtka told Vanity Fair about how the creative team is involving their kids Gideon and Harper in the process.

“They’ve made some wigs for [Harper], so she has some wigs that she’s been trying on,” David said. “They love hanging out in the theater and going onstage and running around back in the balcony. They have a whole little playroom where they go play, and Toys ‘R’ Us is just down the block, so it gives them incentive to come to the theater.”

“We’ve been very clear with the kids that they’re going to see us in lots of different guises throughout our careers and throughout their lives,” Neil added. “And that includes Halloween; we like to get all dressed up and do fun stuff with them, so when I was Frankenstein, and had a big headpiece, we wanted to make sure that they saw me getting into it, and how it’s put on, as opposed to just I go into a bathroom, and I come out and I’m scary. But they’ve seen me in a crazy mustache and a Western suit for Seth MacFarlane’s movie in Santa Fe [A Million Ways to Die in the West]. We think it’s important that they just see that what we do, by definition, involves a lot of different looks, and so, thankfully, with that, they weren’t too freaked out by it—they thought it was silly.”

The New York Times: “Ms. Williams comes closer to evoking the musical style of the Depression than any Sally I’ve seen.”

Associated Press: “Michelle Williams makes her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles and she does an excellent job, playing both scared and daffy superbly and singing with real heart.”

USA Today: “It’s a star turn that, even in this rich season, is truly unmissable.”

FYI: Michelle is wearing a Louis Vuitton dress.
