IT WAS ONCE!

AMAZING!

That's right, Trey Parker and Matt Stone took to the stage to poke fun at the Broadway scene, and after doing so HIGHlariously, they announced that the 2012 Tony Award for Best Musical was awarded to the beautiful love story, beating out Leap Of Faith, Newsies, and Nice Work If You Can Get It!

SO happy to see this one do so well tonight!

Truly something powerful!

Leap Of Faith Is Closing Too!

Leap Of Faith closing

WTF Broadway??

We JUST found out that How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying is closing, and NOW Leap Of Faith announced they're jumping ship too! Boo!

It's pretty sad. The show has been running less that a month, and not even their Tony nomination for Best Musical has helped them fill seats.

What's odd is ticket sales have surged for

Can Leap Of Faith Make The Jump To Broadway?

Filed under: Broadway Babies

If it doesn't, it won't be for lack of trying.

Rumor has it (ruuuuuuumor) that the newly revampd verision of Leap of Faith that was performed in Los Angeles, is doing all it can to be picked up in New York. Starring Raul Esparza, the show began readings in the Big Apple earlier this month, with presentations to potential investors just last week. We heard things went well and if all goes to plan, we could be seeing this baby on the big stage as early as Fall 2012, with Raul still in the lead.

So far, all we know is that producers have cut 25 minutes off of the show entirely and are looking for $10-15 million to get it up and running. Time will only tell if both of those decisions were worth it. Brooke Shields sure as hell didn't think so, since she high-tailed it out of there to go star in The Addams Family musical.

That's sort of telling!

Brooke Shields' New Musical Off To Shaky Start, She May Be Fired Before Broadway Run

brooke shields play opens to very rocky start

Not every musical is going to be a success, Brooke.

Leap of Faith is clearly a team effort, so don't worry.

You've got a variety of people to share the blame with, including the director, choreographer, writer, and other actors.

OR maybe it's the audience's fault. Maybe you've had consistently lame audiences that just aren't "getting it." Who knows?

Whoever's fault it is, Brooke Shields' new show, Leap of Faith, a musical from the legendary composer Alan Menken, is NOT being well received by critics.

The play recently opened at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles, and the producing team is seeking to bring the show to Broadway.

Looks like the play's producing team is unsure about whether or not they'll bring Shields along with them IF they make it to Broadway, but then again, the playwright himself is taking knocks for this one too, so maybe they'll just replace everyone!

We saw the musical. Brooke was decent. Definitely not embarrassing. But we really enjoyed the show overall!

Did U see Leap of Faith? What did U think of it?

SIGHting

Spotted: After a stage mishap during rehearsal for her upcoming Los Angeles show, Brooke Shields was seen around town wearing a cast on her right hand.

Her rep confirmed, "Brooke broke her hand during rehearsal for the musical Leap of Faith. The cast will be off before previews on Sept. 11. It was a minor break and did not affect the production schedule."

Ouchie! Get better, bb!
