Celebs Invade Broadway


A new group of celebrities are making their debut on Broadway this season in addition to a few celebs who are making their return. Mr. Achey Breaky Heart himself, Billy Ray Cyrus, is now starring in the Broadway production of Chicago and he made his debut in the show last night. Additionally, the newishly single Katie Holmes made her return to the Broadway stage last night in her new play Dead Accounts (which we first learned about back in July). Click below to see some photos of these celebrities making their debut/return performances on the Great White Way last night.

I’m not entirely sure how Billy Ray managed to score a sweet gig on Broadway like this but I’m certain it had NOTHING to do with the word he did on Hannah Montana. To be fair, Billy Ray has acted in better projects (like, for example, Mulholland Drive) so I guess he’s got acting chops. I guess. Anyways, let’s move on to Katie Holmes. She made her return to the Broadway stage last night in the play Dead Accounts:

This play, you may know, is Katie’s first gig since she extricated herself from her marriage to Tom Cruise. I’ve never been a big fan of her acting abilities but I fully support her new Tom-free endeavors.

Scarlett Johansson will be playing the role of Maggie in the new Broadway production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

… but she has yet to hit the stage. Her billboard at the Rodgers Theater is in place tho, so, she’s coming. Are any of y’all planning to see any of these celebs on the Broadway stage this season? Which one do you think is your fave?

    NOTHING about that billboard of Sacrlett says Maggie the Cat is Alive. NOTHING!!!! Maybe not the best choice for such a complex character, already done perfectly by Elizabeth Taylor.
