15 Great Escapes: Broadway-Bound
Catch Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin, Sigourney Weaver, and more stars on Broadway this spring.
If you love the theater, consider a trip to New York City this spring. Star sightings on Broadway abound, including Tom Hanks in Nora Ephron’s Lucky Guy, Alec Baldwin in Lyle Kessler’s Orphans, Nathan Lane in Douglas Carter Beane’s The Nance, Cicely Tyson in Horton Foote’s The Trip to Bountiful, and Sigourney Weaver and David Hyde Pierce in Christopher Durang’s very entertaining Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. New musicals with star pedigrees: Kinky Boots, written by Harvey Fierstein, with music by Cyndi Lauper; an adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Matilda (winner of seven Olivier Awards in London); Diner, based on Barry Levinson’s 1982 film, with songs by Sheryl Crow; and Cinderella, a stage version of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s TV favorite.
