This Week's Special Guests: Debbie Gravitte & Alex Getlin
Broadway actress/comedienne Julie Halston has come to a laptop near you! After ranting and raving on stages and cocktail parties, the comedy queen has launched "Virtual Halston," a weekly hour-long gab-fest spotlighting her famous friends. This week, Broadway stars Debbie Gravitte (Jerome Robbins' Broadway) and Alex Getlin (Godspell) will be Ms. Halston's guests, which will air on Friday, September 4 at 5pm EDT on the Cast Party Network on YouTube.
Andrew Rannells, Mercedes Ruehl, Michael Urie, Mo Rocca, Mario Cantone, Max von Essen, Eureka!, Santino Fontana, Judy Gold, Marilu Henner, Justin "Squigs" Robertson, Colman Domingo, Jessica Vosk, Jane Monheit, Anthony Wayne, Frank DiLella, Lilly Cooper, Mary Testa, and Charles Busch have already appeared on past shows. "Virtual Halston" will also offer a quick-fire segment called "Affirmations and Devotionals," which will salute hilarious and slightly insane celebrity-driven video clips and stories.
"Virtual Halston" will be seen every Friday at 5pm EDT, and is produced by Ruby Locknar and Jim Caruso, with animation and artwork by B.T. Whitehill.
