Broadway Weather Forecast: Partly cloudy, high of 89 degrees, with a slight chance of thunderstorms. Pack your umbrella just in case!

Quote of the Day: In honor of LADY DAY's milestone, Billie Holiday talks about her original voice...

If I'm going to sing like someone else, then I don't need to sing at all.
-- Billie Holiday (via BrainyQuote)

What we're looking forward to listening to: The re-issue of the complete, original recording of MISS SAIGON, out August 19! The musical returned to the West End in May at the Prince Edward Theatre.

And finally, a Happy Birthday shout-out to Lindsay Lohan, who turns 28 today!

The actress is set to make her West End debut in Speed-the-Plow this fall. Lohan made her motion picture debut in Disney's remake of The Parent Trap in 1998 and went on to appear in Freaky Friday, Mean Girls and Disney's Herbie: Fully Loaded. Her debut solo album "Speak" came out in 2004, with "A Little More Personal (Raw)" the following year. After several years battling drug abuse and run-ins with the law, Lohan starred as Elizabeth Taylor in the TV biopic Liz & Dick in 2012. Her last film was The Canyons.
