Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Rannells and Michael C. Hall have all played Hedwig in the new Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. When MCH‘s run is finished in January, Hedwig creator and star of the original off-Broadway version of the show John Cameron Mitchell will star in the Broadway version of the show he created. I honestly cannot think of a better person to take over the reigns as Hedwig than John Cameron Mitchell. Brilliant, just brilliant. More »

Last week we got our first look at actor Michael C. Hall in character as Hedwig as he will appear on stage in the Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and TONIGHT will be his first performance in the role. The promo video above was released to remind the world that MCH‘s tenure in Hedwig begins tonight and will run through January 4. I will be in NYC over Hallowe’en weekend for the NY Marathon and I am HOPING to see MCH in Hedwig. He looks great in the make-up, I have every confidence he will slay on stage … starting tonight!!
Early last month we learned that Dexter star Michael C. Hall will star in the Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch when he takes over for Andrew Rannells after his limited run in the show ends later this month (Rannells, as you may know, took over from Neil Patrick Harris who originated the role on Broadway and won a Tony Award for his performance). Today we get our first look at MCH in character as Hedwig in the just-released promo poster and photo below. I am SO excited that MCH is taking the lead in Hedwig and I am in LOVE with this first look at him in character!! HAVE A LOOK! More »

She will play Sally Bowles
Actress Emma Stone has signed on to make her Broadway debut this November in the current production of Cabaret. As you may know, Emma was originally tied to the production when it was announced last year but due to film conflicts, she was unable to join the cast of Cabaret (actress Michelle Williams stepped into the role instead). BUT, now that her schedule is free, Emma is going to take on the role of Sally Bowles when Michelle leaves the show. This is really, really exciting news!! More »

Last night, Neil delivered his final performance as Hedwig but before he took to the stage, he shared a few really fun videos with his followers on Instagram. Neil posted a couple videos that show him getting ready for his performance last night as well as one more video when he was all dressed and ready for the stage.

In honor of one of the Greatest Entertainers of all Time
The cast of the new Broadway musical Aladdin paid homage to the late Robin Williams this week with a special, one-time-only audience sing-a-long performance of Friend Like Me, a song that Williams recorded first for the Disney animated feature film Aladdin. As you can see in the embed above, Tony Award-winner James Monroe Iglehart (who won his award for playing the Genie in the Broadway version of Aladdin) led the cast, crew and audience in a special rendition of Friend Like Me after their performance Tuesday night. This homage was really lovely, I think. Please enjoy.
