Friday Internet Finds

Happy Friday! It was a big week in theatre with several big announcements being made. This week, I made it through my first week of classes and saw two shows. Let me know how your week was in the comments or on Twitter. x

1) The BroadwayWorld UK awards are now open for voting. My personal recommendation is for everyone to go vote for Killian Donnelly for Best Male Long-running West End Show Performer, but there are so many well deserving nominees for the awards.

2) One of the best things about the month of October is that you can watch Halloween movies! This Buzzfeed quiz will tell you which Halloweentown character you are based on your Chipotle order.

3) Casting was finally announced for the upcoming Broadway production of My Fair Lady. With names like Colin Firth and Laura Benanti having been whispered (and my personal hopes that they might cast younger talent like Denée Benton), it was a bit of a let-down in my opinion but I'm excited to see how this cast does.

4) The stage adaption of Moulin Rouge has announced the rest of its creative team. It will have a developmental workshop this October 30 to December 15 before hopefully coming to Broadway in the near future.

5) As I just got back from the Globe Theatre as I'm writing this, I felt I had to include the announcement that Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson will star in a BBC2 television production of King Lear. The rest of the cast includes British greats like Emily Watson and Jim Broadbent. It's set to air in 2018.
