Lessons of the Week! Kristin Chenoweth, Denzel Washington & More

first_img View Comments Star Files Springtime is the busiest time of year on the Great White Way, and we’ve gotta admit, the Broadway.com staff is a little bit sleep-deprived. But that would never stop us from bringing you the 10 craziest things we’ve learned this week! From Lea Michele’s new spirit animal to Nikki M. James’ inability to be friends with a certain five-time Tony Award winner (hint: it’s not Angela Lansbury), we’ve had a very educational week. Read below to find out what we’ve learned!Wanna Date James Franco? Tag Him!Of Mice and Men star James Franco had a bit of an oopsie when he propositioned an underage fan on Instagram and the whole thing kinda blew up in his face. Sorry, James, but she’d rather earn a dollar to sleep with Paul Rudd.Lea Michele Is Going BananasNo, she’s not making a cameo in the finale of Bullets Over Broadway. She’s doing something much more rational—playing a monkey in a Bollywood movie musical! She’s going ape! She’s chimply marvelous! (We’ll be here all week.)Denzel Washington Dreams of UndiesWhen Broadway.com asked the A Raisin in the Sun star what must-have item he wants in his dream house, he waxed poetic about being happy with clean underwear and socks. Sooo, if you’re cool with just socks, can we have your mansion?Kristin Chenoweth Has a Kinky KindleWhat does Kristin Chenoweth do when she isn’t providing the voice for a pink poisonous frog? She reads dirty books, of course! Well, one in particular: 50 Shades of Grey. Kristin, you bad girl! What would Glinda say?Broadway Fans Want BreakfastWe asked readers to vote for the ‘80s teen movie they want to see as a Broadway musical, and The Breakfast Club was the clear winner. We can’t wait to hear its big 11:00 showstopper, “Claire Is a Fat Girl’s Name.”Nikki James Can’t Be Friends with AudraIt’s not because Les Miz star Nikki M. James doesn’t like Lady Day’s Audra McDonald, it’s just that she idolizes her way too much. That’s OK, Nikki, we’re happy to be besties with her. We don’t mind. Audra, let’s do brunch.Kyle Dean Massey Earns Those AbsDuring a two-show day, you’d think Pippin star Kyle Dean Massey would take a nap, grab a cookie from Schmackary’s or at least sit down during his break between perfomances. Instead, he hits the gym, succeeding in making us feel terrible about ourselves. Thanks a lot, Kyle.Don’t Make Laura Benanti DanceLaura Benanti sang like an angel in The Most Happy Fella, but fancy footwork? No way, Giuseppe. While the ensemble (and Heidi Blickenstaff) were busy hoofing in the Encores! presentation, Laura was busy kissing Cheyenne Jackson and falling for Shuler Hensley. Who needs tap shoes anyway?Neil Patrick Harris Has Great LegsWho knew NPH was hiding such a shapely set of legs under Barney Stinson’s Brooks Brothers suits? He’s showing them off (in fishnets!) in Hedwig’s new show photos. We haven’t been this excited since Ramin Karimloo ripped his shirt off.We’ve Got a Vegas Date with Idina in 2054Mark your calendars, because Idina Menzel has officially committed to doing a lounge act in 40 years, singing gravelly renditions of “Let It Go” to her adoring fans while she smokes, coughs and lies down on a couch. Get your—oh wait, tickets just sold out, forget it.center_img Kristin Chenowethlast_img read more

Broadway Loves Tuna: Oh, Hello Extends Again

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney’s half-scripted, half spontaneous Great White Way debut was originally scheduled to run through January 8 at the Lyceum Theatre.Helmed by Alex Timbers, Oh, Hello centers on Gil Faizon (Kroll) and George St. Geegland (Mulaney), two outrageously opinionated, 70-something, native New Yorkers that the pair first began playing on the alternative comedy stages in NYC. Honed for over a decade, the fictional duo garnered a cult following and found their way onto a Comedy Central special, viral videos and late night couches everywhere.Oh, Hello is Gil and George’s “memoir for the stage”—a laugh-a-minute, two-man tour-de-force that’s totally unprecedented. Tina Fey, Seth Rogen, Ben Platt, Alex Brightman and Josh Groban are just a few of the stars Gil and George have welcomed to the stage during the run.As recently announced, the Olivier-winning The Play That Goes Wrong will begin performances at the Lyceum Theatre in March 2017.
