Santino Fontana Sings Hooker Musicals, Idina Menzel Has the Power & More Lessons of the Week

Santino Fontana Sings Hooker Musicals, Idina Menzel Has the Power & More Lessons of the Week
Santino Fontana, Idina Menzel and Beyonce taught us some very important lessons this week!

TGIF, Broadway.com readers! Our heads are spinning from all the star-studded events and Broadway opening nights this week, but before we crawl into bed for a 48-hour nap, it’s time to take a look back at all of the weird, wild and crazy stuff that happened over the last seven days. Ready? Let’s go!


Audra McDonald Could Make History
The Tony committee will consider the Lady Day star in the Best Leading Actress in a Play category, meaning Audra McDonald could be the winner of a Tony Award in every possible acting category. Well, unless she pulls a Hedwig, gets a sex change and sweeps the male categories too.


Santino Fontana Taught Us Everything
This week's Show People was 10 lessons in itself: Santino Fontana can sing the “hooker musical” The Life on command, his weird smoldering headshot was taken by Alexandra Silber, he runs over a mile during each performance of Act One… You want us to go on? We can go on.


Jeanna de Waal Needs a Date
The single Kinky Boots star offered up her e-mail address in hopes of getting dates with our readers (but sadly, she was kidding). Wait, there’s no dating site for Broadway stars? Is this an untapped market? Do we need to launch bHarmony.com?


Beyonce Taught NPH to Walk in Heels
How did Neil Patrick Harris get so adept in walking, dancing and scaling walls in giant platform boots? The Hedwig star studied videos of Beyonce and Tyra Banks. What, no Drag Race? Everything we know about walking in heels we learned from RuPaul.


Marin Mazzie Naps in a Onesie
Bullets Over Broadway star Marin Mazzie schooled us in all things diva this week, and one of her must-haves is a leopard-print onesie to take naps in. Marin, are you sure this isn’t a subtle hint that you want to play Bombalurina in the Cats movie? We’re pretty sure Audra’s playing Gumbie Cat.


Jarrod Spector Wants to Be the Boss
Beautiful star Jarrod Spector has a new role he’d like to try on for size: Bruce Springsteen in a bio-musical about the Boss’ life. That sounds fun, Jarrod, but Marin Mazzie told us there's this Cats movie happening and it sounds like a lot of stars are getting on board. Don’t miss your chance to play Rum Tum Tugger.


Lena Hall Is Packing Heat
Hedwig’s Lena Hall makes a convincing dude in the gender-bending rock musical, but did you know she’s actually got a realistic, uh, member tucked away in there? Ladies and gentlemen, this is method acting at its finest.


Ramin Karimloo Plays Hide & Seek
Ever wanted to find out what it’s like to hang out with Les Miz star Ramin Karimloo all day? Just check out his new video blog—he’ll sing you songs, introduce you to his son, hide under tables and of course, wear a rubber mask that scares the complete sh*t out of you.


Sutton Foster Had an Accent, Y’All
We knew she was born in Georgia, but we had no idea Violet star Sutton Foster used to have a thick southern drawl. We’ll pay a handsome reward to anyone who can provide video proof—anyone got this episode of Star Search on VHS?


Idina Is Woman, Hear Her Roar
Variety put If/Then star Idina Menzel on the cover of their new issue and named her one of NYC's top “Women of Power.” This is something we’ve obviously known since 1996, but we’re thrilled the rest of the world has finally caught up. So if you care to find her, look to the western sky...
