Broadway Weather Forecast: High of 81 and sunny!

Quote of the Day: Amber Tamblyn, has gone from Joan of Arcadia to The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants to Two and a Half Men, talks about her varied roles...

I think I relate to all the characters in one way or another. I'm a chameleon like that.
-- Amber Tamblyn (via BrainyQuote)

Video of the Day: Highlights from THE LITTLE MERMAID at Paper Mill Playhouse last year -- to put you in the mood for the show's run in North Carolina with Jessica Grové!

And finally, a Happy Birthday shout-out to Josh Radnor, who turns 41 today!

Best known for his role as 'Ted Mosby' in the long-running sitcom How I Met Your Mother, Radnor starred earlier this summer in The Babylon Line at Vassar's Powerhouse Theater. He is currently preparing for Disgraced, which will open on Broadway this fall. Radnor made his Broadway debut in 2002's The Graduate.
