| Filed under: Jake GyllenhaalBroadway BabiesSaturday Night LiveNew York

no title

Suddenly Jake Gyllenhaal!

Jake Gyllenhaal's only 34 year old and he's already an Oscar nominated actor, so it seems as though he's changed his passions from the screen to the stage!

That's because after making his Broadway debut in Constellations opposite Ruth Wilson back in January, Jake is taking his talents back to New York to star in Little Shop of Horrors.

The cult favorite is being produced by Encores! Off-Center and will be the actor's first time starring in a musical, so we're really anxious to see how it plays out!

| Filed under: Broadway Babies

no title

The end of an era is upon us!

Mamma Mia! is one of Broadway's longest running shows, but the popular musical will be shutting its fabulous doors VERY soon!

It's been announced that the musical will have its 5,765th and final performance September 5th! So sad!

The musical is the 8th longest running Broadway show in history which makes sense considering Mamma Mia! first opened its doors 14 years ago in October 2001, and has made a whopping $600 million in New York since then.

And producer Judy Craymer is super proud of the show's success. She said:

Perez Reviews: Clinton, The Musical

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesPerez Reviews

no title

Get ready to be transported back to the '90s!

Clinton, The Musical takes you back to the scandals that plagued former President Bill and his wife, Hillary. And there were many!

The show is playing just where it belongs at the best off-Broadway house in New York City, New World Stages.

The theater is big - seating close to 400 - and real money was spent on the wonderful set and production design by Bowulf Borrit.

The songs are fun and effective - and definitely green. Clinton, The Musical's score was written by Paul Hodge, who is still in school! He's getting his Ph.D in music composition.

The show is tight - without an intermission - and featuring a truly sensational cast of Broadway all-stars, including Kerry Butler, Judy Gold and John Treacy Egan.

Clinton, The Musical is camp and niche and a lighthearted, silly, fun night out!
