You're a heart breaker, dream maker, love taker, don't you mess around with me!
If William Shakespeare, Pat Benatar, and Tina Turner had a sexy singing baby it would be Romeo & Juliet: Love is a Battlefield.
Now starring former High School Musical heartthrob Corbin Bleu as Romeo and The Fosters' Ashley Argota as Juliet — this dynamic rock musical fuses classic literature with EPIC love anthems from Pat and Tina!
Written and directed by The Fosters creator, Bradley Bredeweg, Kelley Parker and produced by Kate Pazakis, Battlefield is a gritty take on the iconic Shakespeare we know and love.
Not only do the stars perform IN the audience, but unlike the status quo stage version, you want to root for Romeo and Juliet (SPOILER) to live!
Ch-ch-check out more on the show from Corbin, Ashley, and Jordan Rodrigues — who plays Paris — in the clip (above)!
Performances run all summer long at Rockwell Table and Stage, in Los Feliz, CA and you can purchase tickets HERE!
Passengers were stuck at LaGuardia Airport in NYC for six hours after flights were put on pause because of bad weather.
But luckily for them, an impromptu Disney sing-off became the best way to pass the time!
The Broadway cast of The Lion King belted through some stellar songs from their show as onlookers crowded around to catch the spectacular sing-along on camera. As it turns out, they weren't the only theatre throng in the crowd! The cast of Aladdin was not about to let the pride steal the show, not again, anyway!!
Only the second time it's been revived, this staging was masterfully done by director Bartlett Sher in a grand and truly epic fashion, befitting the equally grand score and story.
This production most definitely has the largest orchestra of anyBroadway production! They had a dedicated harp player!!!
What a thrilling and rich way to hear this iconic music!
Kelli O'Hara absolutely shines as Anna, a role perfectly suited for her voice and persona. She is stern and sweet, warm and light. This is a performance that will finally get her that Tony Award - after being nominated six times!
And, after seeing all the women in her category, she truly deserves it!
Ken Watanabe left us unimpressed as the King, but we like to think it's just the way that part is written. It's hard to be charming in that role.
Ashley Park was a real standout as Tumptim!
And major kudos to Michael Yeargan for his impressive sets!
For the first time in over a decade Taye Diggs will be returning to Broadway as the star in the Tony Award-winning hit Hedwig and the Angry Inch!
On July 19, the current star, Darren Criss, is set to exit the production at which point Diggs will take over headlining. He's officially signed on for a 12-week stint with the show, starring opposite Rebecca Naomi Jones and he'll start July 22, 2015!
The show revolves around a German emigrant, Hedwig, who is the victim of a botched sex-change operation, as she embarks on her journey to find love and stardom. The revival play — which originally opened as an off-Broadway production in 1998 — relaunched last year with Neil Patrick Harris as its star and ended up winning four Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical.
Since it launched, it's gone through quite a few actors playing the lead including:
The 34-year-old actor and the 33-year-old actress both starred in the romantic play Constellations where critics instantly recognized their intense on-stage chemistry!
Well, it looks like art is imitating life and the two are apparently an item!
On Saturday, eyewitnesses saw the photogenic couple at the 10:20 a.m. class at Barry's Bootcamp in NYC getting their sweat on!
According to a source:
"After the class, Jake lingered by the lobby area while he waited for her to shower and change… Ruth and Jake left separately, but while he waited, he was chatting with the people she ended up leaving with. It's clear they have mutual friends. Jake was also very friendly to other people just coming out of the class. No diva behavior at all."
However, before they said au revoir, they just couldn't help but suck face!
