Everything's coming up Ciara!
You may not know her yet, but
Ciara Renée is about to be huge.
Not only has the actress already starred on Broadway in
Pippin and Big Fish, but she also just got cast in the anticipated Greg Berlanti superhero project!
Ciara will portray Hawkgirl in the
Arrow and Flash spinoff which already pulled most of its cast from the two CW TV shows.
NBC is doing it again!
Peter Pan Live!'s numbers may have been somewhat disappointing in comparison to The Sound Of Music, but they were still impressive for a live show.
So the network is putting together another live
show! And this time — Broadway you voted for it — they're getting more ethnically diverse with an adaptation of The Wiz!

Cirque Du Soleil to help bring the magic of Oz to life without the help of visual FX, NBC hopes this will be the best live show yet!
But it'll only work if they get the right cast! And since many fans remember
Diana Ross and in these roles from the big screen, they're going to have their work cut out for them! Michael Jackson
But if it were up to us, here's who would be easing on down the road:
Michael Chabon is responsible for some truly magnificent books and screenplays, and then he also created the characters that are the basis for the new musical . Brooklynite
He isn't involved in this production, but if he were it probably would have benefitted greatly from his expertise!
The show has lots going for it, but its book needs A LOT of work! And that's understandable given that the show's director,
Michael Mayer, and the composer, Peter Lerman, wrote the book.
The songs, though, written solely by newbie Lerman are excellent!!! He has a real bright future in lyrics and music!
And the winsome
Matt Doyle is the lead in the show, charming and singing beautifully as always.
Some serious rewriting and restructuring is needed for this anti-hero superhero tale that could be a lot funnier and more moving. But, like many superhero movies, it's good fun!
