Lindsay Mendez Is Curiously Kinky, Alec Baldwin Wants to Get in Bed with You and More Lessons of the Week

Lindsay Mendez Is Curiously Kinky, Alec Baldwin Wants to Get in Bed with You and More Lessons of the Week
Kristin Chenoweth, Andrew Lloyd Webber and more top this week's lessons!

Thank Fosse it's Friday! Broadway taught us a whole bunch of lessons over these last seven days, from Andrew Lloyd Webber's surprising love of Jack Black flicks to Will Swenson and Caissie Levy's steamy makeout sesh. What else did we learn from the week that was? Read on for our top 10 lessons learned this week on the Great White Way!


Andrew Lloyd Webber Just Wants to Rock
Andrew Lloyd Webber is trading in masquerades and Argentine political leaders for…head-banging teenagers? Lord Lloyd Webber is developing a musical based on the 2003 Jack Black comedy School of Rock, about a rock star wannabe-turned-substitute teacher who helps turn his prep school students into mini Mick Jaggers. Seriously, another Phantom sequel?!


Corey Cott Takes His Desert Islands Very Seriously
Newsies star Corey Cott doesn’t joke around when it comes to tropical isles. The resident Jack Kelly told us that his favorite “desert island” pop culture picks are Cast Away, Lost and, of course, any album by The Lonely Island. Um, literal much, Corey? Next you’ll be telling us that your alma mater Carnegie Mellon is your favorite fruit. (Get it?)


Alec Baldwin Wants to Get In Bed with You
Just in case eight years on your television wasn’t enough, Alec Baldwin now wants to spend the night with you, too. The Orphans headliner is in talks to host a late-night talk show for NBC, which means that Baldwin could be a permanent addition to your bedtime routine. Have you set your DVR yet, Shia?


Lindsay Mendez Is Super Kinky
The opening night guests at Kinky Boots confessed to having some pretty kinky things in their wardrobes, but Lindsay Mendez takes the cake. The Broadway fave picked her shamrock socks as her naughtiest item, saying, “I wear them more than on St. Patrick’s Day.” We don’t know what the hell she's talking about, but we're looking at our candy cane Christmas scarf in a whole new light. 


Elevator Hook-Ups Are Not So Private
Caissie Levy and Will Swenson get it on in their new show Murder Ballad, and we’ve got the elevator surveillance tape to prove it. The former Hair duo locked lips in a steamy promo for the show, which should serve as a reminder that you’re always being watched, especially when you’re tongue-wrestling in an elevator. It’s oh so wrong…on so many levels. #elevatorjoke #sorry


Thrift Shopping Can Win You a Tony
A little smart shopping can go a long way, as proven by six-time Tony winner Bob Crowley. The Once designer revealed this week that he found most of the items for his acclaimed Dublin pub set at a local thrift store. So the next time you come into our ramshackle walk-up and judge our indoor patio furniture, just know that we were actually going for "Tony award-winning chic."


Off-Broadway Loves Its Wizards and Cannibals
If Broadway is currently being run by Mormons and little girls, then off-Broadway is ruled by teen sorcerers and flesh-eaters. Potted Potter (the Harry Potter musical parody) is headed back to the stage, alongside a newly extended Silence! The Musical (starring the infamous man-munching Hannibal Lecter). Eek! What if Hannibal starts feasting on the Hogwarts kids?! Hey man, you've got some Weasley stuck in your teeth.


Harriet Harris Has Some Skeletons in Her Ceiling
In the newest episode of The Princess Diary, Laura Osnes accidentally caught Harriet Harris in the middle of some shady business in her dressing room. What could Harris be hiding behind a loose tile on the ceiling? Our first guess is obviously a dead body, but since Cinderella is a family show, we're just gonna assume that it’s from Crumbs. Thanks, Herman!


Alan Cumming Has a Thing for Recyclables
Solo Macbeth star Alan Cumming has taken the fate of New York into his own hands. In his newest video blog, Cumming declared his personal mission to keep the city green by taking home all of the recyclables at the Barrymore Theatre. Has the King of Scotland ever been so environmentally conscious? Something styrofoam this way comes. Out, damned papers and plastics!


Matthew Broderick and Kristin Chenoweth Are Way Too Close
Here's something to pick-a-little talk-a-little about: After falling for each other in the 2003 movie version of The Music Man, Matthew Broderick and Kristin Chenoweth are set to reunite in a new CBS sitcom pilot in which they'll play brother and sister. So they’re going from sweethearts to siblings? In some circles, they’d call that “Trouble” with a capital T and that rhymes with P and that stands for pretty freakin’ awkward.
