Everyone’s favorite wizarding boy genius has developed a love for performing, sometimes on film and sometimes he prefers to hit the boards in a stage show. Daniel Radcliffe has chosen the latter for his latest project, ‘Privacy‘, to show at the Public Theater, an Off Broadway company that has recently hosted several other big names in Hollywood, Lupita Nyong’o, Claire Danes and Anne Hathaway. Not to mention it’s where the crazy-awesome ‘Hamilton‘ held its debut. On a side note, if you’ve not checked out ‘Hamilton‘, at least get the soundtrack, it is the very definition of epic.

He’s made one hell of an impressive name for himself as an actor in films like ‘Platoon‘, ‘The Last King of Scotland‘ and in ‘Lee Daniels The Butler‘.

Taye Diggs is not a new name to the boards of Broadway by anyone’s measure. The 43 year old thespian has starred or featured in some of my favorite stage shows like ‘Rent‘, ‘Wicked‘ and ‘Chicago‘. Diggs will soon be adding another credit to his impressive pedigree with ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch‘ at the Belasco Theatre.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Bruce_Willis

Broadway and Hollywood have shared the same actors since the beginning of film, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise when a big screen actor makes the transition to the Great White Way, but on occasion, it is when it’s an actor I never really considered for that format, tonight’s shocker comes in the form of Bruce Willis.

Hey Hed-heads, Jana here,

Hedwig and the Angry Inch‘ is a musical that may be new to theater-goers.  Some may have just heard about it when they saw that Neil Patrick Harris got glammed up to play the lead in a revival of the transgendered hit.  Hedwig began in 1998 in an Off-Broadway rendering written and composed by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask. The pair then took their work to Off-Broadway with Mitchell playing Hedwig and Trask as one of the band members. Not to confuse those of you that are unfamiliar with Hedwig any further, let me give you a run-down.

The life of John Lennon has been a topic of discussion and fascination since The Beatles created a world-wide phenomenon with their four chord progressive style, but the means of telling the story has changed over the years. Australian natives actor/musician John R. Waters and singer/pianist Stewart D’Arrietta created a theater production, ‘Lennon: Through A Glass Onion‘ in 1992 in their native Australia where they originally performed the piece. The legendary activist died 12 years before the show debuted while living in New York where he was murdered outside his home by a fan.

Finding Neverland‘ was a film released in 2004. Starring Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, the movie details the experiences of “Peter Pan” author J.M. Barrie, which lead him to write the children’s classic. He got to know four children who have no father. Drawing from his time with the kids, he writes a story about children who don’t want to grow up. In a little bit of a backwards twist, Broadway took an idea from Hollywood to adapt into a musical.

Remember the movie ‘Akeelah and the Bee‘? Akeelah is all grown up now and preparing to take her place on the Great White Way. Keke Palmer is a long way from where she began her career as a thespian and is watching her dreams come true in a whole new way, now. Palmer will be the title character in ‘Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella‘ bowing on September 9th at the Broadway Theatre. Not only is she the new lead for the show, but she takes precedence as the show’s first black Cinderella. Brandy held the same distinction when she wore the glass slippers in 1997’s TV Movie of the same name.

Hi everyone, Jana here,

Bryan Cranston

When you take a multi-faceted actor like Bryan Cranston, his many hats show throughout his career. You’ve got the spineless, browbeaten dad, Hal from ‘Malcolm in the Middle‘, the absolutely brilliant, frightening, genius that is Walter White from ‘Breaking Bad‘. Then you turn-around and he’s in the ‘Rock of Ages‘ musical whaling out Pat Benatar’s ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot‘. He does some fantastic voice-over work for animated productions. Remember the 6-episode of the animated version to ‘Clerks‘? Chances are if you’ve seen that, you’ve heard Cranston’s voice ( you also understand Jay’s saying “we steal monkeys all the time!” in a later film), but I digress. PLUS!!!  Don’t forget that he’s a bad boy with the roller skates! Remember that episode in Malcolm where he had a big skate scene? That was really him doing it! He’s a renaissance man. The real deal. So it shouldn’t be such a surprise that after Cranston wrapped with ‘Breaking Bad’ that he went straight to Broadway.
