Odds & Ends: Lea! Benanti! Adam Shankman to Direct Hair! Cumming on Cabaret!
Laura Benanti
Shankman takes on 'Hair,' Lea takes on the world, Benanti's Broadway diet and Cumming on why 'Cabaret.'

Here's a quick roundup of stories you may have missed today.

Adam Shankman to Direct and Choreograph Hair in Hollywood
From Hairspray to Hair! Adam Shankman is to direct and choreograph the previously reported production of the iconic '60s musical Hair at the Hollywood Bowl August 1 and 2. Shankman’s directing and choreographing credits include the film adaptations of Rock of Ages and Hairspray. He has also directed episodes of Glee.

Lea Michele to go on World Tour
After the successful launch of her album Louder, Glee star and Broadway vet Lea Michele will tour the world this summer. According to her Facebook page she "can't wait to thank you all in person."

Benanti's Broadway Diet
Laura Benanti has revealed a little to what goes into keeping Broadway’s favorite Baroness’ svelte shape. She told The New Potato that she starts her day with her “nutritionist Kim Snyder’s Glowing Green Smoothie” and snacks on “avocado on gluten-free toast.” Don't worry, the self-deprecating Benanti that we know and love still keeps it real. Asked to describe her morning beauty routine she replied: “I don’t really have one. The other day I looked in the mirror and thought, “Just because I think I can get ready in ten minutes doesn’t mean I should.”” You’ll always look fab-u-lous to us, Ms. Benanti.

Cumming on Cabaret
Watch Alan Cumming tell CBS below about why he’s to reprise his Tony-winning role as the Emcee in the Roundabout revival of Cabaret. He talks of how great pieces of art “tell a story which we should be reminded of” and warns of the “dangers of complacency” and how important it is to celebrate difference. We’ll be celebrating right there with you and Michelle Williams when you begin perfomances March 21 at Studio 54!
