Ugly Betty's Michael Urie & Becki Newton Reunite on Stage in 'How to Succeed' (Photos)

Your favorite pair from Ugly Betty, Michael Urie and Becki Newton, are starring together on stage in a one-week-only production of the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and photos have been released!

The actors played the scene-stealing assistants at Mode magazine for four seasons and now they’re acting in front of a live audience at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

Michael and Becki are starring alongside Skylar Astin, Betsy Wolfe, and more in the musical through June 10.

The show follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive. Michael actually appeared in the 2011 revival of the musical on Broadway!

“This is very exciting. I’ve always loved reading the playbills before theater starts…. I can’t believe I’m in one with all these incredible actors. What an adventure,” Becki wrote on Instagram.

Becki is currently raising money to sponsor a doll-making workshop to teach the women of the Samburu tribe in Kenya the art of doll making. This is part of an ongoing effort to support and empower the Samburu people to sustain their families and give them freedom to live the life they choose. All the money from the dolls they make and sell will go back to the mamas to feed their families. Go to GoFundMe to support the cause!
