You may not immediately recognize the name Judy Kuhn, but you’re sure to remember her voice.
This stage veteran and 4-time Tony Award nominee was also the singing voice of Pocahontas in the classic Disney animated feature (and its sequel). She was recently nominated for a Tony for her role in the musical Fun Home and shared the stage with Broadway legend Chita Rivera in the Kander and Ebb musical The Visit.
Judy is joining some of Broadway’s best-known stars, including James Monroe Iglehart (Aladdin), Vanessa Williams (Into the Woods) and Tony Yazbeck (On the Town) to pay tribute to one of American musical theater’s greatest composers, Stephen Sondheim. The gala, a benefit the Women’s Association of NJPAC, is being held on October 3rd at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark. We were able to chat with Ms. Kuhn about her illustrious stage career and what Sondheim means to her. Read More »
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 Miles. Read 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 »
Let me tell you, as an avid theatergoer there is nothing more upsetting than when you go see a show specifically for an actor in said show, and that actor is totally not willing to come hang out at the stage door.
Getting an autographs, maybe photos and telling actors you love them is a time honored theatrical tradition, which is why I assume Benedict Cumberbatch started doing it after the last few performances of Hamlet.
Look at all those excited people! Read More »
Well he hit the stage in a lot more clothing, but this was the end result.
Taye Diggs officially the title role in in Broadway’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch last night. Come on Taye, you had to wait until after I left New York to once again grace the stage with your presence? How very rude.
But at least we have these photos to stare at. Taye looked incredibly excited during his curtain call to be bowing with all that makeup and those short shorts. Read More »
