Tony-winner Turns Billboard Top 10 Artist
She was the surprise story at the Oscars (Thank you, John Travolta!). She's (finally) back on Broadway headlining a BRAND NEW MUSICAL (See below)! And now,
Tyne Daly is BACK!
As a kid, I loved Tyne Daly in Cagney and Lacey. Even then, I knew she was a great actress. Then I saw her on Broadway in Gypsy, and I loved her even more! (Her performance remains among the top 10 I've ever seen.) And, though I haven't seen her (yet) in her return to Broadway, Mothers and Sons, I am so thrilled to hear that she's (yet again) getting rave reviews!
Record-setting Event for BCEFA
Way to go, Broadway Backwards for setting a new record in funds generated - a tidy $423,182 - for Broadway Cares and The LGBT Community Center! This is one event I have get to some year. It kills me that I missed the legendary Patricia Morison, who at age 99, can still work a crowd. And I would have loved to see Michael Berresse and Tony Yazbeck doing "Hot Honey Rag/Nowadays." Plus, I'd walk through hot lava to see Andrew Keenan-Bolger do anything...
And Finally... A Flashback
Every time I see the new tagline for The Lion King, I smile. Felines really must have 9 lives. Well, at least 2. The current tagline sure resembles that other kitty show's tagline. Makes sense... same company does/did the advertising for both! History repeats itself.
