Behind Door #2.....Bang!
How does a comic, improviser, Whose Line Alum, and an LMAD host dropped in the middle of a cold weather city where sports and comedy are 2 things on their mind? Well, Wayne Brady is about to get his shot in “Hamilton” — in Chicago.
Producers of the hit musical said Monday that the comedian and game show host will play Aaron Burr from Jan. 17 until April 9 at The PrivateBank Theatre in Chicago.
Brady won a Primetime Emmy Award for “Whose Line Is It Anyway” and a Daytime Emmy Award as host of his own talk show, “The Wayne Brady Show.”
Brady is no stranger to the stage, making his Broadway debut in 2004 in “Chicago” and last year slipping into high heels to play Lola in “Kinky Boots.”
Brady will take over Burr from Tony Award-nominee Joshua Henry, who will take his character on the road in the show’s first national tour, which starts in San Francisco. Let's hope Drew Carey plays Abe Lincoln in a cameo appearance.
Bella Twins, watch out, Haley and Emily Ferguson of will star on the Freeform series "The Twins: Happily Ever After," the network announced on Tuesday at the TCA Winter Press Tour.
"The Twins: Happily Ever After" will premiere March 20.
The show will serve as a second season to "Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After?," which starred "The Bachelor" Season 20 star Ben Higgins and fiancee Lauren Bushnell.
Haley and Emily both competed for Higgins' affections on "The Bachelor" Season 20, and later appeared on "Bachelor in Paradise" Season 3 as well as "Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After?".
"The Twins" series will follow the sisters as they leave their mom's home and pursue life on their own. Can't wait for Total Divas to come....oh, that's right, it's on E!
Don't let this next story fool you. Actors Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof have capped off a busy year by buying a place in Encino for $7.95 million. The couple previously put a house in Santa Monica up for lease and listed another in Brentwood for sale at $8.795 million shortly after. The Brentwood property is currently pending sale, according to the Multiple Listing Service. Their new house in Encino, designed by Peter Tolkin Architecture and built in 2001, is on more than three acres of grounds with a view of the San Fernando Valley floor. A blanket of oaks, sycamores, palms and fruit trees lends a park-like feel to the property. Inside, poured-concrete walls, steel-framed windows and vaulted ceilings give an atrium feel to the 5,500 square feet of living space, which includes a great room with a fireplace, an open-plan kitchen and a media room. The master suite has a separate office/den and a metallic soaking tub. Including a separate guesthouse and an art studio/gym, there are five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. A swimming pool and spa and a lighted tennis court also lie within the grounds. The sale is among the priciest transactions historically for the San Fernando Valley neighborhood and the most expensive this year, records show. Guess it'll be a housewarming party and Buffy is invited, huh?

This week's pick....
It's 1991 all over again. Earlier today, BWW reported that GRAMMY nominated and multi-platinum selling artist Ariana Grande and 10-time GRAMMY, Oscar-winning and multi-platinum selling musician John Legend may be performing the Oscar and GRAMMY-winning duet "Beauty and the Beast" as the title track for Disney's upcoming soundtrack to the live-action film adaptation BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Now, Disney has confirmed the news. The song will also be featured in the film.
The ballad, originally performed by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson featuring eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken's beautiful melody and two-time Oscar-winner Howard Ashman's unforgettable lyrics, received an Academy Award®, Golden Globe® and GRAMMY Award, among other accolades, upon its release in 1991.
The new rendition of the classic song is produced by GRAMMY-winning veteran Ron Fair, whose music career spans 37 years as a major-label record company leader and accomplished producer, arranger, recording engineer and musical director. Fair was brought in to produce by Disney's president of Music & Soundtracks, Mitchell Leib, who also brought Grande and Legend to the project. The history of collaboration between Leib and Fair in film music goes back to the highly-successful "Pretty Woman" soundtrack. "Ron was the first and only choice to make this particular record," says Leib. "No one is a better vocal producer and he also has a great understanding of the filmmaking dynamic."
And sticking with Beauty and the Beast, it's another edition of.....

That's all for now, but remember one thing: Why did the Hamilton play add hip-hop to it? Because hip-hop wasn't around back then. But if you use your imagination.....it becomes a hit Broadway play. So until next time and all the time....play on playas.
