Laura Benanti

Theater fans may know her from her Tony Award winning performance as Gypsy Rose Lee in the critically acclaimed 2008 Broadway revival of Gypsy or one of her other memorable stage performances in Swing!, Into the Woods, The Wedding Singer and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (among others).

Television fans may know her from the (unfortunately short-lived) sitcom Go On or her recent turn as country music superstar Sadie Stone on Nashville. Regardless of where you may have seen her before, Laura Benanti is sure to join the list of performers who earned EGOT status!

October 9th, 2015 // Leave a Comment

This, you guys! This is how you live life when you’re 94. You live life like Carol Channing.

Socialite Life‘s favorite photographer Michael Freeby was lucky enough to hang out with the icon and photograph her for Kids Beating Cancer. If you’ve forgotten, that’s the organization “that covers the costs of life-saving surgeries for children who otherwise couldn’t afford them – with many surgeries performed in-house at their Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Marrow Transplant Center.”

They do amazing work and we get to appreciate Carol Channing. Fabulous!  Read More »

You may not immediately recognize the name Judy Kuhn, but you’re sure to remember her voice.

Oh Zachary Quinto and Miles McMillan, how I’ve missed you guys being perfect.

The very adorable couple was spotted in New York City yesterday, enjoying a stroll in the fall weather while walking their dogs. Come on Zachary, why you gotta be on your phone? You’re ruining this really adorable Kodak moment.

Also, can you guys believe that Zachary and Miles have been dating for more than two years? They did have kind of a weird start, since Zachary moved on very quickly from ex-boyfriend Jonathan Groff to MilesRead More »

Well glad to see these two are still going strong.

Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black hit the red carpet in London for an evening of theatre at the opening night of Kinky Boots. They didn’t get as matchy matchy as we’ve seen them be before, which kind of made me sad. Remember the double denim date? That was one of my favorites.

But they did pose with international treasure Cyndi Lauper (she wrote the music for Kinky Boots), so I guess that makes up for it.  Read More »

Isn’t that just the worst? You’re giving the performance of a lifetime, but the rest of it just isn’t working.

That seems to be the predicament Benedict Cumberbatch has found himself in with his London production of Hamlet at the Barbican Theatre. After last night’s opening, pretty much all the critics praised Benedict’s Hamlet.

The Guardian has a great roundup of all the reviews from last night, with the The Guardian‘s own review being my absolute favorite.  Read More »
