That's A Wrap! La Cage Aux Folles Closing In A Month!


Well, that's that!

The Broadway revival of La Cage aux Folles, which originally starred Kelsey Grammer and Douglas Hodge, will be shutting down once its current run with Harvey Fierstein and Christopher Sieber wraps on Sunday, May 1st.

Ticket sales have reportedly been less-than-stellar since the original cast left, so it's no surprise that they're cutting their losses while they can.

Too bad! But hey - it had a good run!

Hopefully the rest of the show's this April will do well! Hang in there, guys!

Christopher Sieber Replaces Jeffrey Tambor In La Cage Aux Folles!


A pretty worthy replacement, we'd say!

There's been quite a few casting switch-ups in the Broadway production of La Cage aux Folles recently, now that Kelsey Grammer has left the production and gotten married to his future ex-wife, Kayte Walsh.

When he and co-star Douglas Hodge left the show February 13th, they were replaced by Harvey Fierstein and Jeffrey Tambor, but unforuntately, the latter had to give up performing on February 24th due to complications from a recent hip surgery!

However, two-time Tony nominee Christopher Sieber has been announced as his successor, and will take over the role at an unspecified date for a 'brief engagement!'

Phew! Here's hoping he sticks around long enough for people to be able to keep track of who's playing who! LOLz!

Break a leg, guys!

Newsies Is Being Adapted For The Stage!


Well THIS is something to certainly get excited about!

In fact, we're shocked nobody had thought of this earlier!

Academy Awarding winning composer Alan Menken is reportedly collaborating with Harvey Fierstein on a stage adaptation of the musical Newsies!

In case you are not awesome and are unfamiliar with the flick, it's from 1992 and stars Christian Bale as a singing, dancing, and ass-kicking New York City paper boy in 1899!

Menken reveals:

"Yeah, it is in development. What it's going to be is — honestly, right now — undetermined. I think Disney is still trying to decide whether it's a first-class production or whether it's stock and amateur. But there will be available a stage musical of Newsies. That's all I can say. I've been writing it with Harvey Fierstein and Jack Feldman. [How it emerges is] just gonna be [a] business decision of how Disney wants to proceed with it. But yes, we are developing it. We're having a very successful collaboration. We're all having a great time. We already had a 29-hour reading…in May. I don't think Disney knows yet what it's going to be."

He goes on to reveal that they've expanded from the original music, and the stage version will feature "a lot of new songs."


We're totally psyched about this one - but we can't help but wonder how Christian Bale feels about it!

They should write him a walk-on role! We just hope he's not "done professionally" with his musical days!


What do U think?? Are U excited for more Newsies??

Harvey Fierstein Caught Cruising Grindr

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLGBT


We did not see this coming!

Like George Michael before him, Harvey Fierstein is cruising gay hookup site Grindr in his free time.

The actor is currently in the national tour of Fiddler on the Roof, but while spending a few days in D.C., even Tevye needs some "tradition."

Loves it!!
