‚Äč

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: FROM HERE TO ETERNITY goes from stage to screen in the UK, and 54 Below hosts some 'BITCHING & BELTING' and revives 1776 tonight!

Next up in our series of Broadway stars introducing BWW's morning feature is Ben Fankhauser (portrait by Walter McBride), who last starred in NEWSIES. Amp yourself up for Independence Day -- the weekend is so close! -- with a cuppa and the news!

TODAY'S TOP ITEMS:

NEWS YOU MISSED YESTERDAY:

Broadway Weather Forecast: AM thunderstorms with clouds in the afternoon (and some more storms). High of 87. Definitely going to rain. Crossing our fingers the sun comes out for the holiday tomorrow!

Quote of the Day: One man's trash is another man's treasure. We could listen to theatre talk all day...

In the theatre, people talk. Talk, talk until the cows come home about journeys of discovery and about what Hazlitt thought of a line of Shakespeare. I can't stand it.
-- Anthony Hopkins (via BrainyQuote)

What we're looking forward to watching: PRIDE, which opens in the UK in September. The film is directed by Matthew Warchus and features a slew of West End talent, including Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, and Dominic West. Watch the trailer below!

And finally, a Happy Birthday shout-out to Tonys record-holder Audra McDonald, who turns 44 today!

Six-time Tony winner McDonald is currently starring in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill on Broadway. She last appeared in The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess, 110 in the Shade, A Raisin in the Sun, Henry IV, Marie Christine, Ragtime, Master Class, Something Wonderful, Carousel and The Secret Garden. She also recently appeared on television in NBC's The Sound of Music Live!
