Michael Greif directs this moving new musical by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey.
Gossip Girl here, reporting live from the Booth Theatre, where superhot college freshman Nate Archibald (er…actor Chace Crawford) took in the October 3 performance of Next to Normal with his equally beautiful mother and grandmother. (Hey, the genes come from somewhere!) Why was Nate (make that Chace) spending a Saturday night on Broadway? Call it a family thing. Crawford came to support Aaron Tveit, who plays Nate’s snooty cousin Tripp Vanderbilt on the NYC-based TV show. Of course, Chace has an extra reason to be interested in Broadway-style singing and dancing, since he has signed on to star as Ren in the forthcoming feature film remake of Footloose! Check out a Gossip Guy’s big night out with the family. XOXO
