We bet when Broadway star Patina Miller found out that she was going to be in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2 she was speechless as an Avox!

The Tony award-winning actress will take on President Snow (and his blood scented bad breath) as Commander Paylor, leader of the rebellion in District 8!

So, say goodbye to the Great White Way, Patina, and say hello to the dangerous road that leads to the booby-trapped Capitol.

You go gurl! Tell that authoritative government that if you burn, they burn with you!

Broadway Star Bobby Steggert Comes Out Of The Closet!

broadway star bobby steggert big fish gay comes out of closet

Bobby Steggert may be singing all about lies onstage, but in real life he's ready to sing the truth!

The Tony Award-nominated actor came out of the closet in a new interview with Out magazine!

Bobby talked acting, and how important it was to him to play gay characters with as much truth as possible. He said:

"I think it's a gay actor's responsibility to give full-blooded life to gay characters."

Yes! This is so important! And we love the casual coming out! Some day soon it won't be a big deal at all!

As for Bobby, you can see the cutie currently belting out the tunes (and jerking the tears from what we hear) in previews of the much-anticipated musical Big Fish which has its grand opening on October 5th.

We are so there!

Neil Patrick Harris isn't just our favorite Tonys host- he's one of our favorite people on the planet!

And it's not just because he poised to star in one of our favorite musicals of all time! (Though, it helps!)

That's why we loved seeing the ever dashing and debonair NPH when stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday evening.

Of course, once the How I Met Your Mother star sat down across from funnyman Jimmy Kimmel, he traded the suave for silly, suggesting that everyone do drugs before seeing The Smurfs 2!

But NPH got serious again, swapping Emmys hosting tips with fellow host Jimmy.

Ch-ch-check out all of their HIGHlarious interview, including an ADORABLE home video of the twins …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Kermit & Miss Piggy are finally coming to Broadway!!

Disney Theatrical Productions & Tony-nominated director Alex Timbers put together a live Muppets stage show last month and tested out the feasibility on an audience of staffers!

The showcase was only 15 minutes long, but it could be a preamble to a legitimate Broadway incarnation!!

Hooray!!! This is the truly the most wondrous news we've heard all day week month EVER!!!

Can you imagine next year's Tony's if Neil Patrick Harris AND Fozzie Bear get to tap dance on stage in their bare bear feet!

Wocka Wocka, we can't wait!!

darren criss mia swier tony awards date

Our hearts break every time!

We refused to believe it back when we first learned of his taken heart, but there is no denying that Darren Criss is off the dating market.

The all too handsome Gleekster took a break from his sultry tour to show off his beautiful producer GF Mia Swier late into the night at the Tony Awards Gala on Sunday after the awards show.

As tears stream down our faces, we'll have to politely congratulate Mia once again on her ability to snag a man like Darren, because she is one lucky, lucky lady!

We don't care if she takes him home at night..

He'll always be our imaginary BF!
