Totally forgot to blog about this yesterday: As I was channel-surfing around late Monday night, mourning the end of my long weekend, I happened to flip by "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." Lo and behold, there was pop star-turned-Broadway baby Nick Jonas singing "I Believe in You" from How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying! (And doing a pretty great job, too.)
Turns out it's "Broadway Week" on Fallon's show. Every night features a musical number from one of the fantastic shows on Broadway. If you're just hearing about this now, you've missed Nick and the cast of Porgy and Bess (sad face)—but you'll still be able to catch Ghost the Musical tonight, Sutton Foster from Anything Goes tomorrow and Sister Act on Friday (happy face!).
And none of those "but it's a school night" arguments: a) that's what magical, magical DVR is for, and b) if you don't have DVR, you can still catch the performances the next day on Hulu.
Happy Broadway week, everyone!
Thanksgiving is less than a week away and we’re getting pretty psyched about our favorite turkey-day tradition: watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! The entire production is always spectacular, but we’re especially looking forward to the performances by Broadway casts. We reached out to Macy’s to get the scoop on which shows we’ll see this year. Here’s a rundown:
- Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark
- How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying
- Sister Act
- Priscilla Queen of the Desert
- Newsies (It opens in March!)
Set your DVR—it’s going to be a great show!
