WAKE UP with BWW 6/4/14 - 'MISS DAISY' and CANDIDE On-Screen, THEY CALL ME Q, 'PRINCESS' & 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: DRIVING MISS DAISY, starring Lansbury and Jones, hits movie theaters today, while the NY Phil's CANDIDE concert, featuring Chenoweth and LuPone, is out online!

Can't believe it's already Wednesday; this week is flying, and that's OK with us. Just means we're one day closer to the Tonys!



Broadway Weather Forecast: High of 82 degrees, sunny this morning, partly cloudy in the afternoon with rain late tonight.

Quote of the Day: In honor of DRIVING MISS DAISY hitting theaters, hear what Lansbury has to say about stretching your range...

I think of myself as a journeyman actress. I will attempt almost anything that I think that I can bring off. It could be almost anything.
-- Angela Lansbury (via BrainyQuote)

What we're listening to: Shakespeare in the Park's LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST original cast recording. The album for Alex Timbers and Michael Friedman's new musical adaptation of Shakespeare's play, as seen at the Delacorte last summer, is out now on iTunes!

And finally, a Happy Birthday shout-out to Keith David, who turns 59 today!

David last appeared on Broadway in 2006's Hot Feet. His previous productions include Seven Guitars, Hedda Gabler, Jelly's Last Jam (which earned him a Tony nomination in 1992), Macbeth, As You Like It, Romeo and Juliet and The Lady from Dubuque. He has also taken the stage in quite a few off-Broadway shows, among them A Midsummer Night's Dream, Othello, The Winter's Tale, Boesman and Lena, Titus Andronicus, Coriolanus, Ceremonies in Dark Old Men, La Boheme, Waiting for Godot and more. The actor has several big screen projects in the queue, including Where Are the Cocoa Puffs?, Union Furnace, The Magic City, The Guilty Innocent, The 420 Movie: Mary & Jane, Dutch Book, The North Star, The Last Punch and A Perfect Weapon.
