HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.

I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

The Boys of Broadway: Mr. December



OK, I guess this month I'm being obvious, but Finian's Rainbow star Cheyenne Jackson is my pick for the month's Broadway Boy. Looks-wise it is obvious... the eyes, the smile, the body (his legs alone...grrr). But he also gets points in my book for putting in yet another stellar performance in a so-so musical. Thoroughly Modern Millie, All Shook Up, and Xanadu (a show I loved, but admit is far from classic) all had their charms, and most made what success they had on his shoulders. It is nice to see him in a musical role where he can be leading man, romantic and gorgeous all at once, minus any tinge of camp - he plays Woody (love the name) without a trace of camp, but rather with the elegant style of musicals past. And who has had a better month in recent memory than he has? He's in a critically acclaimed show, that show is recording a cast album, he just released the acclaimed album with Michael Feinstein, The Power of Two, and he is now a co-star in the most celebrated sitcom currently on television, 30 Rock.

And so, without further adieu... here is Mr. December, Cheyenne Jackson!

Headshot...

Finian's Rainbow... what a romantic, sexy picture...lucky Kate Baldwin!

Filming a 30Rock scene... Football! Cool...

Cheyenne has something serious to say...

Angst looks good in color...

...and black & white!

See what I mean about the eyes, smile, body and legs?

He even looks hot as a cartoon!
