Weekend Poll Top Three: Fans Want Laura Osnes in The Music Man!

first_img 2. Sierra Boggess—13% She’s a little busy starring on Broadway right now in The Phantom of the Opera, but maybe she’ll leave the Opera Populaire for the River City library. With the Royal Albert Hall version of Phantom, Boggess already has one filmed production of a musical under her belt. The next move, clearly, is to take it a step further and do it live for millions of people across the country. It’s about time that this Broadway fave gets the national attention that she deserves; no doubt her beautiful voice and comedic chops would win them over! Sierra Boggess Laura Benanti 1. Laura Osnes—33% Back in 2012, Ms. Osnes told us, “Marian Paroo is actually the next [role] on my list.” We here at Broadway.com are all about making casting dreams come true (ask Norm Lewis). It’ll be a bit of a venture from her princess days in Cinderella, but we have no doubt that she would sound beautiful singing “Till There Was You,” which just so happens to be one of her audition songs. We can’t help but think that her victory in this poll had something to do with her Twitter campaigning with Cinderella co-star and one of Broadway.com’s picks to play Harold Hill, Santino Fontana. Laura Osnes Star Files 3. Laura Benanti—11% We already know she can handle the stress of a live production after her performance as Baroness Elsa in last year’s The Sound of Music (who else could trend on Twitter while playing “the other woman?”). Perhaps it’s time for the Broadway and NBC darling to play a leading lady in a live broadcast—especially because there aren’t really any good roles for her in Peter Pan. If she doesn’t do The Music Man, we’ll start a campaign for My Fair Lady in 2016. We’ve got your back, Benanti. View Comments Oh, the Wells Fargo Wagon is a-comin’ to NBC, in a live broadcast of The Music Man! As soon as we heard the news, we started dream casting the role of the smooth-talking con man Harold Hill—from stage favorites to screen stars, so we figured it was only fair that fans got to pick who they think should play Marian “The Librarian” Paroo. You wished they may and you wished they might, and here’s what you had to say!last_img read more

Tickets Now Available to See Tom Dugan’s Wiesenthal Off-Broadway

first_img Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on Feb. 22, 2015 View Comments Tickets are now on sale to see the “Jewish James Bond” off-Broadway!

Wiesenthal Dugan will also make his New York stage debut starring in the production, which is based on the true story of Simon Wiesenthal.

Andrea Martin Talks Pippin, Lady Parts & Dating a Younger Man

first_img Star Files Was it tough to get back in trapeze-flying shape? I’d been doing Act One, but that required a different kind of energy. I was dressed in period costumes, so I wasn’t focusing on being fit. When the play ended, I thought I’d have a nice summer, go to Europe and eat! Then [Pippin producer] Barry Weissler called, and I thought, “What’s more motivating for a 67-year-old woman to get in shape than hanging by her ankles 12 feet above the ground in a corset?” So I went to the Golden Door, this beautiful spa and yoga retreat in California, and now I’m in really good shape again. Are you dishing about Broadway in the book? I don’t really dish, although there is a chapter called “Old Lady Parts,” since the parts I’ve played on Broadway all seem to have been older women: Golde in Fiddler on the Roof, Frau Blucher in Young Frankenstein, Aunt Eller in Oklahoma! When Pippin came along, I thought, “This really is the last straw. I can’t morph into an old lady in a wheelchair.” How does it feel to be back in the show? It’s wonderful. I’m in New York for three weeks, and then I’m going to L.A. for three weeks to perform at the Pantages, this beautiful old theater in Hollywood, near where my sons live. I raised them there, and I have a lot of friends on the west coast who didn’t get the see the show. I’m going to stay with Sean Hayes and his partner, Scotty, who are like family. I’m really excited. It must be such a treat to surprise the audience every night with your performance. Pippin was the most transformative experience of my life. First of all, who would have imagined that at this point I would have the opportunity to learn a new skill on the trapeze? I also wanted to reach out to people my age who might not feel like they have much left to give and say, “We can still look sexy. We can still have energy and change the world.” If you keep yourself healthy and stay curious, there are surprises around every corner. You certainly didn’t. Is there a chapter called “I Was the Sexiest Person in Pippin”? Dammit, no! But there’s a picture that shows I was the sexiest person in Pippin. I don’t need to say it [laughs]. How did it feel to reflect on your life and career in print? The book is not really a memoir, it’s autobiographical essays—humorous stories, like Nora Ephron or David Sedaris. But once I started writing, it became clear that the stories would be about things that are important to me, including being a parent. There are stories about squirrels in my attic, about aging, about SCTV. By the end, you do get a sense of who I am. Uhhh, tell us more about the “Perky Tits” chapter! It’s about a dinner party with Steve Martin, Marty Short and Eugene Levy. We were talking about my book, and Steve said, “There’s Tina Fey’s Bossypants; why not Andrea Martin’s Perky Tits? It has New York Times bestseller written all over it.” Andrea Martin is back where she belongs, twirling from a trapeze and belting “No Time at All” in a three-week reprise of her Tony-winning performance as Berthe in Pippin. Broadway’s most gorgeous granny will soon add “author” to her resume, with the September 23 release of Lady Parts (Harper Collins), a collection of reminiscences that almost had a more racy title. Broadway.com got the scoop on all the good things happening in the life of this legendary comic actress. Show Closed This production ended its run on Jan. 4, 2015 View Comments See Martin in Pippin at through September 21 the Music Box Theatre. Related Shows Pippin We can’t wait to read Lady Parts. How did you come up with the title? It came from Devlin Elliott, who is Nathan Lane’s partner. Give him credit! Steve Martin thought I should call it Perky Tits, after one of the stories I tell, but I was too scared—and Harper Collins said Costco wouldn’t sell the book if I used that. Speaking of surprises, how’s your love life? Well, that’s not happening! [Laughs.] But there’s a lovely chapter about dating a younger man, and you should go directly to that.
