Everyday I'm Shufflin'

The past two days in theater news has been crazy! Shows are coming while others are going, rather not coming at all. Where to begin? Rebecca, the newest attempt to bring back the epic musical, will not play Broadway this year. It was supposed to take the Broadhurst. So with open space, someone was bound to come in a take it! And no doubt, it's the unnecessary revival of A Streetcar Named Desire starring Blair Underwood. Dates are still being determined. Next Capathia Jenkins has joined the cast of Newsies playing Medda. And finally, "Smash" star and Tony nominee Christian Borle is confirmed for Peter and the Starcatcher. Borle received much acclaim for his Black Stache. Phew! That's a lot!
