Brian d'Arcy James and Alice Ripley in next to normal
Charlie Williams - Mr. Memphis
The 4th Annual Broadway Beauty Pageant has been completed and this year's winner is Charlie Williams, Mr. Memphis. This handsome guy is also one of the poster boys for Broadway Bares 20. (A full "spread" on that is coming soon to this blog!). The annual contest has some of the hottest guys currently onstage vying for the title through talent, interview, and, of course, bathing suit competitions. All of the proceeds from this charity event go to the Ali Forney Center, which is a homeless shelter specifically for LGBT youth.
Wes Hart and Daniel Soto
Rickey Tripp and Eddie Pendergraft
This week, three Broadway-related CDs were announced. Currently on sale is music inspired by Come Fly Away (or is it the other way around). I think they should have recorded the actual Broadway band, not compiled them from somewhere else. And it isn't even complete to the show! (The best number, "Take Five", isn't on it, either!)
It worked for next to normal, so why not The Scottsboro Boys? Both shows have controversial subject matter, traditionally better suited to off-Broadway, so both started there. Both shows hooked up with great producers, with deep pockets, and faith in the material. And both will have gone out of town for a "clean up try-out" - normal went to DC's Arena Theatre, and the Boys are going to Minneaoplis' Guthrie Theatre. Next stop, Broadway!
