Show Tunes Brought Andrew Rannells & Anne Hathaway Together

first_imgTony nominee Andrew Rannells stopped by The Today Show on September 23 to discuss his role in the new Nancy Meyers film The Intern. While there, he revealed that he didn’t have much internship experience of his own, aside from a gig during his freshman year at a talent agency, where he faxed headshots. Maybe he can get back into the biz with his Book of Mormon co-star and part-time agent Rory O’Malley? Unsurprisingly, Rannells and Oscar winner/musical theater enthusiast Anne Hathaway had a lot to bond over on set: “we nerded out a few times,” he said, and admitted that show tunes were indeed sung between takes. Check out the clip below, and catch The Intern in theaters beginning September 25. View Commentslast_img read more

Max Wilcox, Taylor Louderman & More Set for Gigantic

first_imgThis coming-of-age tuner has attracted one stellar cast. Max Wilcox (Glee), Taylor Louderman (Bring It On: The Musical), Leslie Kritzer (Hairspray) and more have been tapped for the previously reported Gigantic off-Broadway. Directed by Scott Schwartz, the musical comedy is part of Vineyard Theatre’s upcoming season and will begin previews at The Acorn Theatre at Theatre Row on November 11. The limited engagement is set to officially open on December 3 and will play through December 20.The cast will also include Andrew Durand (War Horse), Katie Ladner (Heathers), Burke Moses (Beauty and the Beast), Ryann Redmond (If/Then), along with Jared Loftin, Jennifer Geller, Bonnie Milligan, Larry Owens, Cole Ragsdale, MiMi Scardulla, Nyla Watson and Kalyn West.Getting shipped off to weight-loss camp is hardly Robert’s (Wilcox) idea of the perfect summer, but even he isn’t prepared for what can be lost or gained at Camp Overton, the No. 3 weight-loss camp in Southern Pennsylvania. Gigantic tackles the growing pains of adolescence through the experiences of a bunch of misfit teens forced to find solace in one another as they look—inside and out—for acceptance, a hot make-out session, and the last contraband Butterfinger.The production will feature a book by Randy Blair and Tim Drucker, music by Matthew roi Berger, lyrics by Blair, choreography by Chase Brock, set design by Timothy R. Mackabee, costume design by Gregory Gale, lighting design by Jeff Croiter and sound design by John Shivers and David Patridge.
