Jonathan Bailey profiled on “CBS Sunday Morning”


Heartthrob Jonathan Bailey seems to have mastered the art of on-screen romance, from the Regency bodice-ripper Bridgerton, to the fictional love affair between closeted Capitol Hill staffers at the height of McCarthyism in Fellow Travelers. CBS Sunday Morning correspondent Michelle Miller talks with the openly gay actor about his roles on stage and screen (including the upcoming screen version of Wicked), and his desire to be “completely authentic.”

Happy 81st birthday to Barry Manilow!

Looks like he made it!

Barry Manilow turns 81 today and so I thought I’d share some of his classic songs. There are so many so sometimes you just gotta make those hard choices.

I feel so much better celebrating Barry as an openly gay man which he has been run recent years. He has said that if he had come out during the height of his popularity in the 1970s and 80s, it would have killed his career.

Probably true.

I suppose better late than never!

Here is a wonderful star-studded tribute to Broadway legend Chita Rivera on last night’s Tonys


This was done kind of perfectly. Bebe Neuwirth, Audra McDonald, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Ariana DeBose honor Chita Rivera at The 77th Annual Tony Awards.

Her other Broadway shows included The Rink, The Visit, Nine, Jerry’s Girls, Merlin, Bajour, The Mystery of Edwin Drood and Chita Rivera: The Dancer’s Life, among others.

Jonathan Groff’s star turn in Stephen Sondheim’s ‘Merrily We Roll Along’ lands him his first Tony



Jonathan Groff has been so good in all he’s done on stage and screen and tonight, he finally got a major award for it! The Broadway veteran of such shows as Spring Awakening, Hamilton and star of TV’s Looking won the Tony Award for best leading actor in a musical for his star turn in a revival of Merrily We Roll Along which is finally a hit. Groff’s co-star, Daniel Radcliff, also won his first Tony in the featured actor in a musical category. Here are both of their acceptance speeches along with tonight’s performance of Old Friends at the Tonys with the show’s leading lady Lindsay Mendez. The show, which closes next month after a smash run, also won the Tony Award for best revival.

Showtune Sunday: From Liza, LuPone & Lansbury to Chita & Bacall, celebrating multi-Tony winners for lead actress in a musical!

You tend to think of Ethel Merman as the ultimate queen of the Broadway musical with all those big hits spanning from the 1930s to 1970 when she did the final year of the original Broadway run of Hello, Dolly!

But, surprisingly, Merman was not queen of Tony Awards and won the Leading Actress in a Musical prize only once. (Merman also received a special Tony in 1972)

So today, I’m shining a light on some of the ladies who won in the category at least twice (Angela Lansbury won four times and Mary Martin and Gwen Verdon three). The two-time winners are Lauren Bacall, Christine Ebersole, Sutton Foster, Patti LuPone (her third is in featured actress category), Liza Minnelli, Donna Murphy, Bernadette Peters, and Chita Rivera.

We celebrate some of them below – enloy!
