Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Is Coming To The United States

Just when you thought it might be impossible to score tickets to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and work out a way to get to London to see it, the acclaimed West End play has announced that it's headed to the United States. Talks are in the works for the play to make its U.S. debut in 2018.

Keira Knightley Broadway Debut Disrupted By Screaming Superfan

Reaching celebrity status can be a dangerous thing. Once an actor has become a popular, there’s no turning back. There will always be fans that take their obsessions a bit too far, and any time a celebrity is seen in person, those fans tend to lose their minds.

See Original Miss Saigon Cast Members Perform In This Amazing 25th Anniversary Gala Video

It's been 25 years since Miss Saigon's original production made its debut in London. To celebrate the occasion, a Gala performance took place at the Prince Edward Theatre in London. Those of us who couldn't be there to see stars Lea Salonga, Jonathan Pryce, Simon Bowman and others take the stage to celebrate the musical aren't out of luck though.

Watch Idina Menzel Hilariously Manage A Wardrobe Malfunction On Stage

Idina Menzel's "divas" need their stage! One of them was trying to steal the spotlight during her performance at Radio City Music Hall. How did Adele Dazeem Idina Menzel handle the situation? With humor, that's how. First, she assessed the situation, which from the sound of it in the video, was brought to her attention by someone offstage. She realized that she was slipping out from under her top.

Watch The Lion King Australia Cast Sing 'Circle Of Life' On A Plane

It's not often that you board an airplane to find a Broadway-level cast of musicians belting out a song from a hit musical. And that's pretty much what happened on a Brisbane flight headed back to Sydney, Australia. The Australian cast of the theatrical version of The Lion King filled the cabin with the opening song, "The Circle of Life," much to the amusement, curiosity or indifference of the passengers preparing for take-off.

Kristen Bell Talks Musicals, The Stage And Plans To Work With Frozen Song-Writers Again

Kristen Bell is on fire lately. Not only did her gone-too-soon detective series Veronica Mars earn itself a much-deserved comeback in the form of a Kickstarted film that arrives this week, but she was a key part of the massively popular Disney musical Frozen, in which she not only got to show off the sense of humor we're already familiar with, but also her vocal talents.

Kinky Boots And Pippin Among 67th Tony Award Winners

The Tony Awards are a great opportunity for those outside the New York area to get a peek at some of the new and revived musicals tearing up the Broadway stage. Case in point, the video above gives us a look at Kinky Boots, Cyndi Lauper's musical about a man who inherits his father's struggling shoe factory and aims to revive the business by making shoes for men seeking stilettos. Lauper did the music and lyrics, while Harvey Fierstein is credited for writing the book. Kinky Boots is just one of the stage productions that had a good night at the 67th Annual Tony Awards, which aired on CBS last night.

Wicked's Idina Menzel Returning To Broadway For If/Then

Idina Menzel hasn't abandoned the stage completely since her Tony Award-winning performance as Elphaba in Wicked. The Broadway star has juggled theater work with her big and small screen roles, including reprising her character Elphaba in London when Wicked made its West End debut. But she hasn't starred in a Broadway play since leaving the cast of Wicked close to a decade ago.

Shia LaBeouf Drops Out Of Broadway Play Orphans Over Creative Differences

Shia LaBeouf may have played the chubby kid in Even Stevens and the main character in Transformers, but he’s still a man who takes the craft of acting very seriously. Over the past few years, he’s consistently picked roles that would either push himself creatively or push the envelope with the audience. As such, he was scheduled to make his Great White Way debut in a revival of Lyle Kessler’s famed Orphans, but unfortunately, that’s now off the table.

Katie Holmes Chooses Broadway For First Post-Tom Cruise Role

It’s not surprising Katie Holmes is eager to again prove herself as an actress following her split with husband Tom Cruise, but the direction she’s going in might raise a few eyebrows. Rather than taking a splashy film role, Holmes has reportedly decided to join the cast of Dead Accounts, a new Broadway play from the creator of Smash.

Magic Mike Will Get Broadway Hot And Bothered Next Year

Director Steven Soderbergh has jumped on board to produce, and Carolin will write the book with an eye toward taking the extravaganza to Broadway by the summer of 2013. That doesn’t really leave everyone much time to get the details worked out, but given the excitement level here, I don’t really think everyone committing their time will be a problem.

Magic Mike Will Probably Move Its Thongs To Broadway

You need two things to be a successful stripper: a desirable body and an over abundance of confidence. Magic Mike solidified the first problem by hiring Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and pretty much every other good looking dude in Hollywood. As for the second problem, well, I think this story speaks for itself.

Julie Taymor Claims Bono Is Partly To Blame For Spider-Man Mess

Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark might be fascinating Broadway fans with its crazy stunts, but the pending litigation surrounding the production is far more shocking. Original director Julie Taymor was booted after the budget soared and delays, coupled with bad press, escalated the fears of investors.

Hugh Jackman Sets Broadway Records In Return

There’s no word on exactly how much money Jackman himself is making, but seeing as how the show consists only of himself and an eighteen piece orchestra, I would imagine his accountant is pretty happy. If you’re in the neighborhood, I’d highly suggest checking it out. It won’t be long before he’s back in Hollywood.

Dustin Lance Black Taking Proposition 8 To Broadway

Many of the leading litigators, both for and against, are actual characters in the work, and the screenwriter spent hours interviewing opinion makers on both sides of the issue to help synthesize the argument and turn it into a one act play. A staged reading of the work helmed by Broadway veteran Joe Mantello will take place in September to be followed by productions at several universities including Carnegie Mellon, Northwestern and Michigan

Julie Taymor Makes Spider-Man Sing

Remember in Spider-Man 3, when Peter Parker succumbs to the black goo and becomes “cool” and can dance and seduce ladies and stuff? Well, if you don’t have too much PTSD from that scene, and you love Spidey, you can now start looking forward to director Julie Taymor’s new adaptation of Marvel’s Spider-Man for the stage
