The Great White Way is no stranger to hosting Hollywood actors. In fact, the theater district is crawling with A-listers this season--definitely more than you can catch over a holiday break.
Here are our personal picks:
Bradley Cooper in Elephant Man In one of Broadway’s smallest theaters is one of Hollywood’s most handsome men--very close to your eyes and very different from what you’d expect. (To play the circus freak, he contorts his own, prosthesis-free face.)
Emma Stone in Cabaret Here’s the thing about Sally Bowles: She’s been done. And that’s the exact beauty of Stone’s not-just-a-pretty-face performance: It’s shockingly great.
Maggie Gyllenhaal in The Real Thing Any heady, quick-witted play is a win for us. What seals the deal, though, is when the scenes change and Gyllenhaal and Ewan McGregor sweetly and imperfectly sing ’60s ditties.
Josh Radnor in Disgraced From How I Met Your Mother to a gut-wrenching (and Pulitzer Prize-winning) story about post-9/11 racism, Radnor may surprise you.
Sting in The Last Ship The rock star turned composer recently joined the cast to keep ticket sales afloat (so, sinking ship?). But let’s get real: You’re in it for him and him alone.
