Forget the wand — it's all about Daniel Radcliffe's buns.
The Harry Potter star beat some of the United Kingdom's hottest celebs for the this year's distinguished Rear of the Year Award. LOVES it!
But who exactly did the Broadway actor beat?
Well, none other than Mr. 50 Shades Of Grey himself — Jamie Dornan! Fierce!
Never heard of the ROTYA?! Well it's essentially the Oscars of behinds.
For about four decades, the light-hearted award has recognized some of the entertainment industry's best butts. Specifically, Brits nominate and vote for the British celebrities with the top assets of the year.
Simply, Daniel has the Meryl Streep of bottoms.
Congrats to the What If performer's female counterpart Kym Marsh.
Regardless, we aren't shocked that the 25-year-old received the HIGHlarious prize as he's no stranger to stripping down for his craft.
Did anyone else see Equus?! LOLz!
Last year Daniel explained:
When Madonna released her song Express Yourself all those years ago, we're not sure this is what she had in mind!
Jonathan Groff recently opened up to FourTwoNine about his missed connection with the superstar singer back April, when she was not invited backstage after seeing a production of Hamilton at the Public Theater in New York City.
For those of you wondering why on Earth author-slash-composer Lin-Manuel Miranda denied the pop princess' request to meet the cast of the hip-hop musical, it might be because she wasn't watching the show as much as she was texting through it.
But the Broadway babe wasn't really broken up about not being able to talk to the music icon. In fact, Jonathan hopes the snub taught her a lesson about theater etiquette, saying:
UPDATE 6:07 PM EST: Patti issued a statement about why she snatched the texter's phone, saying:
"We work hard on stage to create a world that is being totally destroyed by a few, rude, self-absorbed and inconsiderate audience members who are controlled by their phones. They cannot put them down. When a phone goes off or when a LED screen can be seen in the dark it ruins the experience for everyone else – the majority of the audience at that performance and the actors on stage. I am so defeated by this issue that I seriously question whether I want to work on stage anymore. Now I'm putting battle gear on over my costume to marshal the audience as well as perform."
In case you forgot that you shouldn't be texting during a broadway show, Patti LuPone is here to remind you!
On Wednesday, the Tony winner put a stop to a persistant texter during the evening performance of her play Shows for Days at the Lincoln Center!
Reportedly, the American Horror Story alum literally grabbed the cellphone out of the audience member's hand and took it back stage with her:
TV casting… happens so fa-ast!
Actually, it's been over a year since Fox first announced their Grease: Live! musical, so it's taken quite a while to get the perfect Danny Zuko.
And the best choice was… Aaron Tveit!
Playing Kenickie — and romancing Vanessa Hudgens ' Rizzo — will be Big Time Rush star
We LOVE Lincoln Center Theater's LCT3 program, promoting the works of emerging artists and encouraging diverse audiences to visit the theater with affordable $30 tickets.
Sunday night we caught Dave Molloy's Preludes. He is more than "emerging" - he's very established! But this new piece is very experimental in nature and fits in perfectly with the other work of LCT3.
If you're going in and expecting Molloy's Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812, then you will be greatly disappointed.
While that show was based on War & Peace and was completely sung-through, Preludes is based on the life of the composer Rachmaninoff and it features A LOT of dialogue. Far more talking than singing.
While we've seen some of Molloy's more experimental work - quite enjoyably Black Wizard/Blue Wizard - this piece was lacking the passion of Natasha and the humor of Black Wizard/Blue Wizard.
Preludes is very cerebral. And a tad too experimental for our liking.
But, while we didn't like it, we found it enjoyable.
The actors did a great job and interspersed throughout the show - though not enough - were some really great songs.
We're glad we saw it and continue to look forward to what Dave Molloy does next!
Jake Gyllenhaal may be a big star in Hollywood, but for theatergoers on Thursday night at New York City Center's production of Little Shop Of Horrors, it was all about Ellen Greene.
The actress was reprising her signature role of Audrey, which she originated in the early '80s off-Broadway and also portrayed in the film.
Greene was received like a rock star by the rapt audience, who warmly took to everyone in the cast, including the super talented Taran Killam from Saturday Night Live.
But, what you really want to know is…. Can Jake Gyllenhaal sing????
Well, the answer is HELL YEAH!!!
He was great as Seymour!!!!
Why has he not done more singing????
We hope to see him on Broadway in a musical real soon!
Everybody got to shine in this concert staging, but what was most apparent is that the music by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman is so brilliant and timeless!
This is one of the best musical theater scores of all time!
Howard Ashman was taken from us far too young of AIDS. But his legacy will live on in this show! Because Little Shop Of Horrors is running all over the world and will continue to do so forever and ever!
We LOVE New York City Center and all their programming! Another homerun for them!!!
