Hope was running high on September 18 when dancers of all shapes and sizes turned out to audition for Broadway’s Billy Elliot! Well, all sizes under four feet, 10 inches tall, that is. A bevy of girls ages eight to 12 lined up outside the Broadhurst Theatre to try out for a role as one of Billy’s ballet girls ...

How does history get all sexypants? That’s what Broadway.com was determined to find out when we slipped into rehearsal with Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, the emo rock musical that starts performances at Broadway's Jacobs Theatre on September 21.

In off-Broadway's The 39 Steps, the hilarious crime caper lovingly spoofing the classic 1935 Alfred Hitchcock suspense film of the same name, four actors go into full-on chameleon mode as they play more than 100 characters (sometimes quickly transforming on stage with just the change of a hat!). The hard-working cast does backstage duty, as well, using shadow puppets and ...

Like everyone in the theater community, we cheered when actress Marian Seldes was announced the winner of a 2010 Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement. Truly, no one deserves it more than this great lady of the stage, whose career spans 60 years—from Medea in 1947 to Deuce in 2007—and five previous Tony nominations, including a win for Edward Albee’s A ...

When Broadway.com asked Tony nominee Douglas Hodge to let us spy on his transformation process at La Cage aux Folles, we almost forgot a crucial fact: Most of it happens onstage, during Albin’s opening number, “A Little More Mascara.” Still, a surprising amount of prep work goes into turning Doug into Albin before he becomes the fabulous drag ...

It’s not quite a redemption story, but it does have that Hollywood feel-good-movie vibe: In 2005, after bit parts in back-to-back flops Good Vibrations and Lennon, Chad Kimball left New York—and Broadway—after seven years as a resident. “I was tired of pouring my heart and soul into shows and hoping and then not getting that reaction you hope for,” ...

You'd think actors performing in an adrenaline-driven rock show every night would prefer to spend their days doing more resting and recuperating than rock 'n' rolling. Their busy schedules, however, don't always allow for that. Just ask Stark Sands, who stars as slacker-turned-soldier Tunney, in the Green Day rock opera, American Idiot. Since Idiot's opening on April 20, Sands ...

Valerie Harper’s fresh good looks and earthy charm do not immediately bring to mind the brassy, overly made-up Hollywood glamour of stage and screen siren Tallulah Bankhead. But stand back, dahlings!

It’s easy to see why Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie became a phenomenon when it made Broadway debut in 1945. The play has drawn a parade of formidable actresses to the role of overbearing mother Amanda Wingfield, and now two-time Tony Award winner Judith Ivey is stepping up to the plate in the Roundabout Theater Company's off-Broadway transfer from the ...

It's something of a small miracle that Michael Cerveris is still standing. The Tony Award winner (the versatile stage star won for his performance in Assassins in 2004 and scored three additional nominations for Tommy, Sweeney Todd and Love/Musik) routinely manages to cram what seems like three days of work and activities into just 24 hours.
