WAKE UP with BWW 7/16/14 - PUMP BOYS & DINETTES, 'WIDOW' at Powerhouse, 'LOVE' at WTF, 'FIDDLER' at Goodspeed and More!

Good morning, BroadwayWorld! Because we know all our readers eat, sleep and breathe Broadway, what could be better than waking up to it? Today's big news: Encores! Off-Center's PUMP BOYS AND DINETTES opens tonight, and the regional theatre scene explodes tonight with Kyra Sedgwick starring in Powerhouse's THE DANISH WIDOW, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF opening at Goodspeed, and LIVING ON LOVE making its world premiere with Renée Fleming in Williamstown!



Broadway Weather Forecast: Morning showers with clouds in the evening and a cool (at least for July) 80-degree high.

Quote of the Day: With Renée Fleming starring in WTF's LIVING ON LOVE from tonight, hear what she has to say about taking chances...

I've always been inspired by artists who have shown musical and intellectual curiosity and the courage to take risks.
-- Renée Fleming (via BrainyQuote)

VIdeo of the Day: In honor of PUMP BOYS AND DINETTES opening tonight with Encores!, re-live the show's 1982 Tony Awards performance!

And finally, a Happy Birthday shout-out to the lord of the dance, Michael Flatley, who turns 57 today!

Choreographer Michael Flatley brought Riverdance to Broadway in 2000. He is also the creator of the world renowned Irish dance shows Lord of the Dance, Feet of Flames and Celtic Tiger. Last month, the dancer was featured in a TV special called "Michael Flatley: A Night to Remember", celebrating his long and award-winning career.
