Star-Gazing: Who's on Broadway This Spring (A - L)

Welcome to Broadway, Ramin
When I started working on my upcoming quarterly "Looking Forward To..." blog, I was struck by how many stage and screen stars were going to be in shows this spring!  There are a few of high-profile Broadway debuts that I'm looking forward to: international stage star Ramin Karimloo and TV star/playwright/filmmaker Zach Braff, TV and screen actress (and Oscar nominee) Michelle Williams, and stage and TV star Andy Mientus.


But the star power of established stage, screen and TV actors is huge!  So huge, in fact, that I decided to split this into 3 separate blogs.  Coming up, I'll take a look at new shows, M - Z and the power players behind the scenes of all 16 new Broadway shows* still to open.  Today, I'll look at the shows A - L!

Tony Winners Alan Cumming and LaChanze
are back this spring!

  1. And just like that, you have to add Audra to the list for "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill"!

  2. So it would seem! I'll be sure to add her to the list when it becomes "official!"
