Broadway Things That Make Me Happy: July Edition

IT COULD BE WORSE SEASON 2 STARTS TOMORROW!
Love, love, loved Season 1!!!  Can't wait to see what happens to Jacob (Wesley Taylor), Ben (Adam Chanler-Berat) and Sam (Mitchell Jarvis) when they head to L.A.!  Check out the amazing cast list at itcouldbeworse.tv !  You'll be able to see it on Hulu and Hulu Plus starting July 17.




BROADWAY BARKS WAS A BIG SUCCESS!
I love it when the Broadway community comes together for a great cause.  And they've been doing so for 16 years for Broadway Barks, founded by Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore!  This year, the stars were out in full force, including James Franco, Bebe Neuwirth and cast members from If/Then, Beautiful, Rocky and many more.


If/Then's James Snyder and Jen Colella and 2 cute friends!

BROADWAY FAVORITES IN THE ADDAMS FAMILY
And I love it when my favorites performers get to show off their talents all over the country, too!  How lucky the people of St. Louis are to see Rob McClure, Jenny Powers and Jen Cody at the MUNY in The Addams Family.  Can't to see McClure in Honeymoon in Vegas!


BOX OFFICE SUCCESS!
With shows dropping like flies these days, it is great to hear that many shows are thriving!  The Tonys sure gave a boost to the Best Musical A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder - it's doing SRO business!  Beautiful is packing 'em in, and Hedwig and the Angry Inch made back its investment!


YOU ARE THE BEST READERS!
Just yesterday, I posted my dream cast for DEXTER:The Musical, and already, you've sent in a TON of casting suggestions.  Read that blog HERE.  He:re are some of my favorite suggestions:

Tim S. wrote: "How about an older Dexter, Debra and Rita than you suggested? Norbert Leo Butz, Jenn Colella and Kate Baldwin!"  I think Jenn would be great, too, Tim!


nooziefloozie wrote: "You left out Doakes!  How about Bryan Terrell Clark from Motown?  And there has to be room for Andrew Keenan-Bolger!"  Oops! How could I have forgotten Doakes?  Nice work, noozie!  (Love your screen name!)

Kara H. wrote: "You have Jeremy Jordan and not Laura Osnes??"  Kara, for which part? Debra or Rita? I can only imagine Laura with Debra's potty mouth!

Like minds came together, too. 3 of you suggested Neil Patrick Harris and Lena Hall as Dexter and Debra!

Keep sending in your ideas!
