On Twitter Watch, Hugh Jackman wrote 'Even though 'Hugh Jackman - An Evening with Hugh Jackman' may be a set performance, it is in effect a concert that also contains improvisations. Hugh Jackman is a Tony-Award-winning actor renown the world over, most notably by his roles in movies such as 'Wolverine', 'X-Men', 'Les Miserables' and 'Real Steel.' The Australian artist puts his talent in song and dance on full display before our very eyes and he is accompanied by dancers and an orchestra of thirty two pieces during the performance. The show features various segments, including tributes to classic movie musicals like 'Singin' in the Rain' and 'Guys and Dolls' as well as odes to the Aborigine culture of Jackman's native Australia and Peter Allen, the Australian composer Jackman earned a Tony Award for playing in The Boy From Oz. Jackman improvises often throughout the show. His charming interactions keep things fresh and funny. An international movie star who got his start in Australian theater, Jackman earned a Tony for his Broadway debut in The Boy From Oz in 2004, the same year he first hosted the Tony ceremony. He returned to Broadway in the 2009 hit 'A Steady Rain' opposite Daniel Craig, followed by the solo concert 'Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway' in 2011. In 2012, he played the role of Jean Valjean in the musical movie 'Les Miserables.' - See more at: http://www.zorlucenterpsm.com/en/hugh-jackman#sthash.FkXLGdkF.dpuf'THE FRIDAY SIX: Q&As with Your Favorite Broadway Stars- ALADDIN's Brian Gonzales

On Twitter Watch, Ioan Gruffudd wrote 'Working with the lovely and talented @LILLACRAWFORD today! #IntoTheWoods @ForeverABC Crawford moved from Los Angeles to New York City where she made her Broadway debut in 2011 as Debbie in the closing cast of the musical Billy Elliot. She previously auditioned for the role while she had been on vacation in New York City and was not planning on auditioning. Later, after a nationwide search, she won the title role in James Lapine's 2012 revival of the Tony-winning musical Annie at the age of 11 after having previously been in a community theatre production of the same show, of which she played Bert Healy. She competed against over 5,000 other girls auditioning to play Annie over a span of nine months. After her initial audition in New York she had five or six callbacks, the final one with a dozen girls. While performing in Annie, she filmed the Broadway.com video blog 'Simply Red' for the show, which earned her a broadway.com title of 'most clicked stars of 2013'. She has also played 'The Little Girl' in Ragtime at Avery Fisher Hall, alongside Lea Salonga, Norm Lewis, and many others. Additionally, Crawford played Little Katie in a workshop production of Home the Musical by Scott Alan in New York City. Crawford has also appeared in a workshop of Melissa Arctic and has performed in 14 shows at Youth Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles. Crawford has also held many musical theater workshops for children in NYC that focus on audition techniques and stage presence. She has partnered with her vocal coach Philip Pelkington and the performing company A Class Act to hold these workshops. She also held a workshop at the Marymount School of New York where she mentored the middle school's cast of Into the Woods Junior. Crawford made her feature-film debut playing Little Red Riding Hood in the Disney film adaption of the musical Into the Woods, a role that was originally rumored to have been given to Sophia Grace Brownlee. The film was released on December 25, 2014, at the Ziegfeld Theater where Crawford was dressed in an Oscar De La Renta dress.'THE FRIDAY SIX: Q&As with Your Favorite Broadway Stars- ALADDIN's Jonathan Schwartz

February 9, 2015
On Twitter Watch, Anna Kendrick wrote 'Excited to announce @TheAcademy has invited me to be part of a special performance at the #Oscars on Feb. 22nd!

This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy) - all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them. Rob Marshall, the talented filmmaker behind the Academy Award-winning musical 'Chicago' and Disney's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,' helms the film, which is based on the Tony-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics - including an all-new song for the big-screen adaptation. Produced by Marshall, John DeLuca, 'Wicked' producer Marc Platt and Callum McDougall. The complete cast for INTO THE WOODS is as follows: Meryl Streep as The Witch, James Corden as The Baker,Emily Blunt as The Baker's Wife, Johnny Depp as The Wolf, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as Cinderella's Prince, Billy Magnussen as Rapunzel's Prince, Mackenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel, Lucy Punch as Lucinda, Tammy Blanchard as Florinda, Christine Baranski as Cinderella's Stepmother and Tracey Ullman as Jack's Mother, with Lilla Crawford as Little Red Riding Hood and Daniel Huttlestone as Jack, directed by Rob Marshall.
