Cheyenne Thrusts, Headley Returns and More Theater News
Picture > 1000 words. Or so they say.
Well, we’re going to put that little maxim to the test today with a theater news round-up that’s all about the image. And what nice images they are…
The first images are out from the new Broadway romantic comedy The Performers, featuring Cheyenne Jackson as adult film star “Mandrew”. Is it just me or does that man have the proportions of a G.I. Joe doll? Not that I’m complaining.
Diva-lovers rejoice; we’ve got two new albums from some of Broadway’s brightest talents. Tony-winner Ms. Heather Headley returns with Only One in the World featuring a sneak track from the upcoming musical The Bodyguard. And Tony-nominee and future Cinderella Laura Osnes delivers a music theater set on Dream a Little Dream: Live at the Cafe Carlyle.
Get a load of this gorgeous and talented trio. Karen Olivo (West Side Story, In the Heights), Will Swenson (Priscilla, Hair) and Rebecca Naomi Jones (American Idiot) will be starring together in Murder Ballad at MTC’s new space, The Studio at Stage II. The new musical by Julia Jordan and Juliana Nash premieres November 15.
And look who is greased up again; it’s Maxwell Caulfield in an LA production of Helen. We’ve been on a Grease 2 kick of late and, after seeing this photo, I think our obsession might just last a bit longer. I mean, thirty years later, the man is still a mighty cool rider.
