Best on Broadway
The celebs worth seeing on the Great White Way
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.
