Lessons of the Week! Jonathan Groff, Audra McDonald & More

first_img View Comments Jonathan Groff Happy Friday…and Happy Sutton Foster Day! We’re sure you have plenty of plans for this Broadway holiday, from partaking in the traditional licking of noses to selling your panties online. But before that, let’s revisit the wildest stories of the past seven days on the Great White Way. From a Psycho vlogger who literally just can’t to a naked Ben Platt, we’ve got you covered. Take a look below!Groffsauce Can Get You HitchedLook out, Bette. There’s a new Broadway matchmaker…and he loves dick socks and anal covers. The Robber Bridegroom’s Steven Pasquale revealed that it was none other than Jonathan Groff who set Pasquale up with Hamilton’s Phillipa Soo. Groff’s even officiating their wedding. So while our dreams of marrying Groff are still a stretch, at least he can marry us to someone else. You in, Tveit?POTUS & Hermione Can Drop BeatsWe bet Hamilton is at last feeling pretty damn presidential this week. After performing at the White House, Lin-Manuel Miranda took to the Rose Garden with POTUS himself to freestyle about Obamacare, the Supreme Court and more. Oh, and he also freestyled with Emma Watson. Are there any important people who haven’t hung out with Miranda at this point? That’s a lot of right-hand men and women.Audra was Uranowitz THIS WHOLE TIMEAudra McDonald is obviously an incredibly versatile performer, whether she’s tapping in Shuffle Along… or singin’ the blues in Lady Day. But her latest performance is something special. While this looks and sounds like An American in Paris’ Brandon Uranowitz, it’s actually Audra in a pink bob. It’s easy to get them confused, considering they have the same vocal range and both played Billie Holiday for HBO.Julia Murney’s Got a New Title RoleSpeaking of versatile performers, Julia Murney is at last taking on the titular character in Fiddler on the Roof. No, not the fiddler. The other one: the roof. Third shingle from the left, specifically. This is all according to the Murn herself when she visited Adam Kantor at the stage door. We haven’t seen a performance this transcendent since Julia Murney’s Side Show opposite Wayne Brady.Houdsyshell Was an Accidental CarmenEver felt miscast in a role? Jayne Houdyshell sure has. The star of The Humans played “Carmen” in the J. Lo film Maid in Manhattan, but before you retroactively boycott the 2002 masterpiece for whitewashing, consider this: it’s purely accidental: Houdyshell was assigned the wrong role. We can’t wait to see Houdyshell unintentionally headline On Your Feet! following her stint in at the Helen Hayes.Ana Villafañe Rocks Her Body RightBefore Jayne Houdyshell inevitably takes over in On Your Feet!, its current star Ana Villafañe still has plenty of time to conga to the music of Gloria Estefan. Or NSYNC. Or the Backstreet Boys. That’s right: boy bands make her get on her feet and make it happen. Hey, Ana: we hear there’s a Backstreet Boys musical in the works. Not sure if there’s any conga involved, but doesn’t hurt to ask.Fruma Sarah Would Def Sashay AwayWe have no doubt Fruma Sarah would slay a Lip Sync for Your Life (er, Afterlife) challenge on RuPaul’s Drag Race, but she would definitely be clocked for her makeup skills. On #LiveatFive, Fiddler’s Jessica Vosk revealed that the approach to her beat is very unpolished; there’s no contouring or blending for the dead. No shade; that’s just how you serve Butcher’s First Wife realness.Jennifer Damiano Can’t…She’s in TechIf there are two things we know about tech week, it’s these: 1. It’s a terrible time to get proposed to, and 2. It’s not the ideal time to grab a camera and show us around your theater. Well, the latter is precisely what we had Jennifer Damiano do in her American Psycho vlog. The show apparently looks amazing, but of course, no one’s allowed to see it (not even us). Damn you, tech. Bad for proposals, bad for Broadway.com vlogs.Gabrielle Ruiz Has Smelled the Best of ‘EmOn top of being a fierce beltress and dancer who’s so good at yoga, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Gabrielle Ruiz has a gifted sense of smell. According to her, former castmates Ricky Martin and Idina Menzel smell like Creamsicles and magic, respectively. Also, Lea Salonga gives off the aroma of muffins and paprika. Thanks, Ruiz, this is actually extremely helpful the Broadway fragrance line we’ve been developing.Ben Platt Did Not Do Pajama Day RightHigh school is the time to make bad decisions. Maybe you rocked a tragic hairstyle. Perhaps you wrote Fiyero/Boq fanfic (this writer is certainly not speaking from experience). For Dear Evan Hansen’s Ben Platt, it was deciding to go commando on pajama day—for that was the day he got pantsed and everyone met his dear Evan Hansen. Wow. How aca-embarrassing.

Kawhi Leonard texted former coach Nick Nurse to let him know free agency decision

first_imgKawhi Leonard doesn’t say much. He doesn’t really need to.When it came to letting his former coach Nick Nurse know of his decision during free agency, he stuck with that approach. The deal that happened close to midnight on the West Coast didn’t come as a complete shock to Nurse, MacMullan’s report noted.”Nurse knew all along that Leonard was potentially a one-year rental. When he saw Kawhi’s text, he cursed, then exhaled, then resumed waving his arms to ‘Purple Rain.’ No one, he reasoned, tried to wrest the Larry O’Brien trophy away from him upon hearing the news.”Leonard previously told ESPN he was “very close” to heading back to the Raptors — or signing with the Lakers — this summer. But, the 28-year-old forward ended up choosing the Clippers after they acquired his friend and fellow star Paul George in a trade with the Thunder.”When (the Clippers) presented the opportunity of playing with Paul (George), it was easy, it was a yes,” Leonard said. “I said let’s get it going.”Leonard entered free agency as one of the most sought after players. He was coming off one of the best postseason runs ever with the Raptors and averaged 30.5 points in the playoffs on his way to being named the Finals MVP.   Immediately after Leonard’s decision was finally made, both he and Nurse started to focus on their own upcoming seasons.”I saw Fred (VanVleet) and Pascal (Siakam) the day after (Kawhi left),” Nurse said. “I told them, ‘There are 20-plus shots up for grabs.’ They both grabbed their right shoulders and said, ‘We’re ready.'” Nurse, who was still celebrating the Raptors’ NBA championship in Las Vegas at a Prince tribute show, got a text from Leonard.”I’m going home,” it read, according to ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan.

Robert Downey Jr Gives Iron ManInspired Bionic Arm To Young Boy

first_imgRobert Downey Jr recently lent his “Tony Stark” character to Limbitless Solutions and Microsoft’s The Collective Project to enhance the life of a young boy with some cool technology.Video: The Collective Project: Robert Downey Jr. Delivers a Real Bionic ArmDowney paid a surprise visit to Alex, a super-hero loving, 7-year-old boy from central Florida who was born with a right arm that was only partially developed.During their meeting, Downey revealed two closed Stark Industries briefcases on a coffee table. Sitting on a couch with an eager Alex, Downey simultaneously open the briefcases revealing what seemed to be two Iron Man bionic arms. One arm was the actual arm from Iron Man, and the other was a real, near replica of the movie arm. Both Downey and Alex tried on their arms for comparison, and ended their comparison with a bionic fist bump.The free, bionic arm was made by Limbitless Solutions, a volunteer group at the University of Central Florida that specializes in building unique, creative bionic arms for children world-wide. Limbitless Solutions and their founder, Albert Manero, were seeking support as part of the #Collection Project, and Downey was interested in getting involved.To learn more about Limbitless Solutions click here.To learn more about The Collective Project, click here.Copyright ©2015Look to the Starslast_img read more
