Photo Flash: Nick Jonas Performs on LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON's 'Broadway Week'
All the excitement of the Broadway stage was broadcast into viewers' homes last night as 'Broadway Week' returned to LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON. Monday's show featured a performance by Nick Jonas, currently starring as J. Pierrepont Finch in the Broadway revival of 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying' opposite co-star Beau Bridges. Jonas will be appearing in the show through July 1st. The actor can soon be seen as a guest star on NBC's hit musical drama "Smash" on February 27 at 10 p.m. ET.
Each night this week, LATE NIGHT will open with a performance from a current Broadway show. Tonight, Fallon welcomes two-time Tony Award nominee David Alan Grier to the Late Night stage to perform a number from The Gershwins' "Porgy and Bess." The critically acclaimed Broadway revival is still celebrated as one of theater's most exhilarating love stories.
The supernatural power of love comes to studio 6B Wednesday, February 22 when the cast of "Ghost The Musical" stops by. Adapted from the Award winning film, the show follows the love story of Sam and Molly while Sam struggles as a ghost trapped between two worlds. The production officially opens this upcoming spring.
Thursday night's show will feature Roundabout Theatre Company's 2011 Tony Award winning musical "Anything Goes." Sutton Foster takes the "Late Night" stage to sing a rousing selection from this saucy production set on the S.S. American. The show was the recipient of three 2011 Tony Awards including Best Revival and Best Actress in a Musical (Foster).
The week concludes with the Whoopi Goldberg produced "Sister Act" on Friday, February 24. Based on the feature film which starred Goldberg, this musical comedy has received rave reviews for its feel-good energy and rocking dance numbers.
Nick Jonas made his Main Stem debut as Little Jake in Annie Get Your Gun in 2001. He followed that performance with the role of Chip in Beauty and the Beast and Gavroche in Les Misérables.
