Good morning, BroadwayWorld! Because we know all our readers eat, sleep and breathe Broadway, what could be better than waking up to it? For your most important theatre meal of the day, we've rounded up the big news you missed yesterday, what's on the agenda today, and a few extras to start your day off right.

The Bacon: See what's on the griddle today...

Cup of Joe: Perk up and revisit yesterday's big stories...

Quote of the Day: Who is your scaffolding?

"My family were broadminded enough to support me when I wanted to pursue a life in the theatre."
-- Peter Gallagher

Video of the Day: Check out this behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Billy Porter's new album, out today!

And finally, a Happy Birthday shout-out to Emma Thompson, who turns 55 today!

Thompson just appeared opposite Bryn Terfel in this year's New York Philharmonic production of SWEENEY TODD. She starred in the West End in 1985's ME AND MY GIRL. The production went on to run for eight years (Thompson played the role for 15 months). Her first film role was opposite Jeff Goldblum in The Tall Guy. She later worked alongside Kenneth Branagh (then her husband) in many Shakespearean film adaptations, including A Midsummer Night's Dream, King Lear and Much Ado About Nothing. Among her celebrated film credits are Howards End, The Remains of the Day, In the Name of the Father, Sense and Sensibility, Angels in America, and, more recently, the Harry Potter series, Love Actually, Stranger than Fiction, Brave and Saving Mr. Banks.
