Here’s A Teaser Of Emma Stone’s “Cabaret” Performance

Emma Stone
Life Is A Cabaret

Emma Stone is starring in “Cabaret” on Broadway as Sally Bowles, and this montage gives us a quick look at her performance. The only thing missing is her singing voice, but I guess we have to buy a ticket to experience that part. It’s easy to be wary when a movie star decides to dabble in musical theatre, but Stone received rave reviews in the role so far so I’m giving her the benefit of the doubt (and I’ll be going out of my way this winter to see it for myself)! We have until the end of the show’s run in February to see her knock “Maybe This Time” out of the park — book it over to that theater!

Watch The Broadway Cast Of “The Lion King” Sing On The NYC Subway

Lion King Cast
The Circle Of Life

On June 28th, NYC subway riders received a spontaneous performance from the Broadway cast of “The Lion King,” who serenaded them with a beautiful rendition of “The Circle Of Life.” The show became New York’s first $1 billion Broadway production last year, and the NYC subway served over one billion riders last year, so this is how they chose to celebrate. Despite my many love-hate moments with New York, scenarios like this are the reason it’s so magical to live here — you never know what amazing surprises you’re in for! [BuzzFeed]

Elaine Stritch, Star Of The Broadway Stage And "30 Rock," Has Died

Actress Elaine Stritch passed away today at age 89. An outspoken Broadway star, Tony Award nominee, style icon, and Jack Donaghy’s mom on “30 Rock,” Elaine was a woman who was never afraid to say what she felt. One of her most legendary roles was as an aging society woman in Stephen Sondheim’s musical “Company,” in which she brought the house down with her performance of the darkly humorous song “The Ladies Who Lunch.” For years, Elaine glamorously lived at the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan. She was a fixture of New York City, and in 2003, the New York Landmarks Conservancy declared her a Living Landmark. She died at her home in Birmingham, Michigan. [New York Times, People]
