Good morning, BroadwayWorld!

Yesterday, BroadwayWorld was saddened to report that Naya Rivera's body has been recovered from Lake Piru, according to the Ventura Country Sheriff's department. Rivera, best known for her role as Santana on Glee, was 33.

Andrew Lloyd Webber is officially taking legal action against Donald Trump. As BroadwayWorld reported last month, Cats veteran Betty Buckley called on Webber to send a cease-and-desist notice to the Trump campaign, as the song 'Memory' from Cats continues to be played at his rallies. Now action has officially been taken by Webber's Really Useful Group in the UK.
