Annaleigh Ashford shares a quirky list of obsessions.

Broadway stars know what’s hot in entertainment, fashion and pop culture, so Broadway.com decided it was high time to tap in to the after-hours obsessions of our favorite stage actors. Dogfight's hilarious and heartbreaking Annaleigh Ashford, who is bringing the off-Broadway house down as the dentally-challenged winner of that musical's title competition, shared her overwhelming love TV shows both fancy and very much not, classic children's book series, perfectly plucked eyebrows and much more.

TV SHOW: “I recently finished the first two seasons of Downton Abbey in a flash. I love that every single cast member is on the poster in order of their societal rank and I love that Laura Linney introduces every episode by reminding you that you are watching Masterpiece Classics. It makes me feel fancy. I also have a guilty pleasure for Bravo. I don't miss an episode of any season of The Real Housewives or Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. If Andy Cohen ever had a last minute cancellation, I could do a full commentary on any season with a jack hole and a mazel.”  



STAGE SHOW (OTHER THAN MY OWN): Peter and the Starcatcher is one of my favorite things I've ever seen on stage. It makes you feel like you're a little kid playing pretend in your basement again with the best imaginary friends in the neighborhood. We forget sometimes that we all started out playing pretend and it is a joyous reminder. ”

MOVIE: Moonrise Kingdom is magical!!! I never thought that watching a story of prepubescent love could bring me such joy, but Wes Anderson makes me want to go camping with a portable record player.”  

SINGER: “Breedlove's 'New York City Rooftop.' It's my favorite song of the summer.  He's brilliantly talented and fabulous. ”


VACATION SPOT: “My family's cabin up in the Rocky Mountains. Deer, elk, and moose frolic amongst the pine trees along the Colorado River. It's heaven on earth.”

  ATHLETE: “ I'm from Denver and we got Peyton Manning!!!!! Woo hoo!! Here we go Broncos!!!!!”

 

BEAUTY PRODUCT: “Tweezers. My grandma used to keep a pair with a mirror in every room of the house. She always thought: you never know when an unannounced visitor will show up at your door, so you have to be able to check your chin for some unannounced visitors on your face.
”

BOOK: “I have been obsessed with Anne of Green Gables since I was nine years old. I would read the whole series, all eight books, every summer until I was a sophomore in college. My favorites were books 1, 3, and 5 and I still read them when I need a little Anne with an E.  I can't resist the "lake of shining waters," "lovers lane," Gilbert Blythe and Anne's delicious way with words. Someday I'm going to go on a vacation to Prince Edward Island in a weird Victorian Garment and visit Lucy Maud Montgomery's house with a glass of raspberry cordial. ”
