WAKE UP with BWW 7/15/14 - Jenkins Back in NEWSIES, LADY DAY & HEDWIG on the Shelves, Menzel Goes MLB 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: Capathia Jenkins returns to NEWSIES as 'Medda', we can add two new Original Cast Recordings to our collection -- LADY DAY and HEDWIG -- and Idina Menzel performs at tonight's MBL All-Star Game!



Broadway Weather Forecast: Feels like deja vu! Thunderstorms with a high of 84 today. But hang in there -- looks like the clouds will be clearing up later this week.

Quote of the Day: In light of yesterday's wonderful news that AMERICAN PSYCHO will be traveling across the pond, hear what creator Duncan Sheik has to say about darkness in art...

I actually think sadness and darkness can be very beautiful and healing.
-- Duncan Sheik (via BrainyQuote)

What we're listening to: The LADY DAY AT EMERSON'S BAR AND GRILL Original Broadway Cast Recording, out today! Not only do we get to travel back in time to Billie Holiday's hey-day, we also get to live it through another stand-out entertainer -- six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald.

And finally, a Happy Birthday shout-out to Scott Foley, who turns 43 today!

Well known for his roles as 'Sean Kelly' in the long-running medical dramedy series Scrubs (please make a musical, please!), 'Henry Burton' in Grey's Anatomy, 'Patrick Devins' in True Blood and 'Jake Ballard' on Scandal, Foley starred on Broadway in 2003's The Violet Hour.
