first_imgGuys, we never thought this day would come. It’s finally Friday! To celebrate, we’re bringing you the weirdest, craziest and silliest things that happened on Broadway this week, from Brandon Uranowitz’s celebrity steam regime to the elusive “weird dancing” of Idina Menzel. Get ready, get set…for the Lessons of the Week!Ramin Karimloo Is Going JapaneseKonnichiwa, 24601! The Les Miz star is heading to Japan to headline The Prince of Broadway this fall alongside Shuler Hensley, Nancy Opel and more. We’re absolutely thrilled for you, Ramin, but we have one question: Do you think Hal Prince will mind if you do this a few times in the show? Like, 14 or 15 times?Elisabeth Moss Has a Curious CrushWhen we asked The Heidi Chronicles star to reveal the fellow Tony nominee she had a crush on, she briefly pretended it was Bradley Cooper…before confessing it was actually recent Juilliard grad Alex Sharp, star of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. We know your dream role is Mama Rose, but are you sure you wouldn’t want to play Mrs. Robinson one day?Amanda Seyfried’s Five-Year Plan Is PinkNow that starring in The Way We Get By has helped her overcome stage fright, Amanda Seyfried is aiming to tackle another life goal: Playing Glinda in the Wicked movie, which she calls “my number-one plan for my future.” Wow—our number-one plan for the future is trying to resist eating that leftover pizza in the fridge.Brandon Uranowitz Steams Like CelineEver wonder how An American in Paris star Brandon Uranowitz keeps his vocal cords so supple and moist? Yeah, we never did either. But he’s giving us the scoop in Max von Essen’s vlog “‘S Wonderful,” where he shares his Celine (Dion?) inspired steaming process. Thank you, Brandon. This steam strategy is safe in our hearts, and our hearts will go on and on.Sydney Lucas Doesn’t Have an AllowanceWhen we asked all three actresses who play Alison Bechdel in Fun Home to fill out our crazy questionnaire, we learned that the stars really like coffee ice cream and Ellen DeGeneres. But we also learned 10-year-old Sydney Lucas is the only one who doesn’t get an allowance. But don’t worry—she gets a salary. And it’s probably bigger than yours.Ivy Lynn & the Whole Gang Are BackDo you spend your days weeping, shoving peanut butter cups down your throat and mourning the loss of Smash? Yeah, us too. But get off the couch, put on something that isn’t sweatpants and get over to the Minskoff Theatre, where the entire cast of Bombshell is reuniting! (Plus, Jeremy Jordan, because obviously!) Oh wait, you can’t go. Tickets sold out in 45 seconds. Sorry. Back to the couch.Get Ready For Idina’s Weird DancingWhen Idina Menzel embarks on a concert tour, we know what to look forward to—“Defying Gravity,” “Let It Go,” maybe a little “Take Me or Leave Me” with a hyperventilating audience member…all of our favorites. But the blazing supernova is promising another bonus: weird dancing! We can’t wait to see her bust out this, this and this.Darwig Has Arrived on the InternetThis week on “The Total Package,” unofficial Broadway.com mascot Darren Criss unveiled his new persona “Darwig,” a glittery, wig-less hybrid of Darren and Hedwig. Video footage of Darwig has officially graced the internet for the very first time, and you know what that means, folks. GIF early and GIF often. We’re waiting.Andy Karl Bruises For His ArtAn honorary Broadway.com Audience Choice Award (bestowed after tons of complaining) isn’t the only perk Andy Karl gets for starring in On the Twentieth Century—he’s also covered in prestigious “comedy bruises,” a badge of honor that even impressed Carol Burnett. That’s great, Andy, but didn’t you get punched enough in Rocky? What about a show with lots of cushy padding next season, like SpongeBob Squarepants?Brandy Is a Broadway.com StalkerWhen we invited Brandy Norwood to our headquarters to film her “Ask a Star” segment, we had no idea she was such a Broadway.com superfan! “I love Broadway.com,” the Chicago star told us. “I stalk Broadway.com.” We love you too, Brandy, but if you keep showing up in a cape and demanding we take voice lessons with you, we might be forced to stick you in another show a few blocks down.
