Cheyenne Jackson tickled me. AFTER ordering SoMMS a drink but NOT tickling him, and hanging out with Girly in his dressing room (where he DIDN'T tickle her) but BEFORE we got married. To others. And then he tweeted Boobs. He also tweeted he's good friends with some chick on "The Voice" who just happens to be good friends with Tink's ex. And I'm still married. Oh, and this just in: "Pettiness, spite, malice ....Such ugly emotions... So sad." - After Eight, talking about MEEEEEEEE!!! I'm so honored! :-)

They started rehearsals (Cast mates of Heathers the Musical tweeted Emma and the cast were rehearsing in the same building, and Emma delivered them some extra pies). Anyone know who is playing this role yet?

Begger? Really?

Anyway, I have no idea. They don't even list that role on the official event page at NY Philharmonic's website: http://nyphil.org/ConcertsTickets/EventDetails?event=%7B8DF9F54E-DEAC-411D-8DD6-FD7199A91230%7D

This is odd. I guess they don't think it's important enough to announce.

Or so important that it's going to be big news.

In all seriousness I think Jackie Hoffman would be great.

If it was big news they'd announce it to increase ticket sales wouldn't they?

She would be FIERCE!

But even if not so, incredibly psyched for this! Not least of which because Gilbert is conducting!

She can wear a different color costume for each scene.

"She would be FIERCE! "

You know Audra has already done the Beggar Woman in Sweeney Todd... and yes, she was fierce. in the 2000 Philharmonic concert with George and Patti. I cannot find any video but there is audio of the concert on YouTube and you can always buy the live recording.

Surprised the Phil hasn't released photos of the stage like they did with Carousel last year. Very curious to see what this is going to look like.
