This Week’s Picks: Rosie O’Donnell, Chita Rivera & Cute Sailors

first_img Have a Helluva Time at On The Town Begins September 20 at the Lyric Theatre You’re in New York for 24 hours. What do you do, after hitting the Olive Garden for unlimited soup, salad and breadsticks? If you’re the three sailors in On the Town, you embark on a singing and dancing romantic adventure! The return of the classic musical comedy features a cast of 30 dancers and singers (including Tony Yazbeck and Jay Armstrong Johnson), music by Leonard Bernstein, and tons of catchy songs. Click for tickets! Welcome Back a Jukebox Hero September 15 at Helen Hayes Theatre Rock of Ages has really been treating us right this year. First, it brought back Tony nominee Constantine Maroulis. (Yaaay!) Now original cast member Mitchell Jarvis is returning to the ‘80s rock extravaganza, with a twist. Instead of playing Lonny, the role he’s known for, he’ll play rock god Stacee Jaxx. And he’ll be singing the hits of Barry Manilow—just kidding! Some things should never change. Click for tickets! Shed a Tear at Love Letters Opens September 18 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre Brian Dennehy and Mia Farrow are the initial all-star duo in this revival of A.R. Gurney’s beloved 1988 drama. The play chronicles the ups and downs of two longtime friends through 50 years of letters. Though we can’t wait to see this production, which will feature Carol Burnett, Alan Alda and others in coming months, we pray that no one bases a play on our correspondence. Four words: Patti LuPone fan fiction. Click for tickets! Support Young Artists with Chita & Rosie September 15 at Birdland We believe that children are Broadway’s future. Otherwise in 30 years, every theater will be home to The Gin Game. We can’t let that happen, people! So head out to Birdland, where a who’s-who of performers—including Chita Rivera, BD Wong, Rosie O’Donnell, and Andy Karl—will sing an array of numbers in An Evening of Song Benefitting Art Attack, the organization that supports and nurtures young performers. Click for tickets! Yeah, we know you’re really busy with work, school and polishing off that box of crackers—but you must not neglect what’s really important! New York City has so many fun, theater-related events on tap, including the opening of Love Letters, the return of some super-hunky sailors and the annual BC/EFA Flea Market. It’s all part of this week’s picks! Snag a Bargain at the B’way Flea Market September 21 at Shubert Alley and W 44th Street Unless you want an ancient Hootie & the Blowfish album or a t-shirt worn by someone’s hirsute uncle, most flea markets are, to be kind, underwhelming. But not the Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction! The 28th annual event, which benefits Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, features tons of Broadway memorabilia and treasures for sale, a live auction, and the chance to be photographed with your favorite star. Have fun! View Commentslast_img read more
