Kelsey Grammer's unemployment didn't last long.

Two weeks after ABC canceled his latest sitcom, "Hank," Grammer was announced as one of the stars of a Broadway revival of the musical "La Cage aux Folles."


Producer Sonia Friedman said a revival of the 1983 Jerry Herman-Harvey Fierstein musical will open April 18 at the Longacre Theatre in New York.


It's based on the current hit London production and will feature that show's British star, Douglas Hodge. The director is Terry Johnson.

"La Cage" concerns the relationship between the club owner, portrayed by Grammer, and its drag star, the role played by Hodge.
Grammer, 54, played Dr. Frasier Crane on the NBC comedy series "Frasier" for 11 seasons.



Meredith Baxter Reveals She's Gay


After recent reports say 'Family Ties' mom Meredith Baxter was spotted on a gay cruise, the actress is coming clean on 'Today,' saying: "I want to say I'm a lesbian, and it was a later-in-life recognition."
In an interview with Matt Lauer, Baxter -- who has been married three times and has five children -- says she figured out her sexuality seven years ago.

Baxter says that she realized she needed to come forward because she "got involved with someone I never expected to get involved with, and it was an awakening.
I understood why I have the issue in my life ... I was involved with people who made me think they're the problem.

It never occurred to me, that it was me," Baxter said.


Speculation about Meredith's sexuality was raised when tabloid magazine The National Enquirer reported that she was spotted on a gay cruise recently.
Baxter shot to fame thanks to her role as matriarch Elyse Keaton on the hit '80s sitcom 'Family Ties.' Before her success there, she already had a long career in showbiz, with acting gigs dating all the way back to 1971. She had stints on 'The Love Boat,' 'Family' and 'Bridget Loves Bernie,' among other shows and movies.

Baxter has five children from three separate marriages. She had two children with husband Ted Bush, and later had three more with David Birney.
In recent years, Baxter has become very focused on charity work since she survived breast cancer.
She's since started her own charity -- the Meredith Baxter Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.

Hello, gospel!
Carol Channing sings spirituals

By ERIC HEGEDUS
It's so nice see Carol Channing back where she belongs — belting out big tunes.
Although this time, the Tony-winning stage icon — most recognized for her portrayal of that spunky lead character from “Hello, Dolly!” — brings her distinctive vocals to a new CD, “For Heaven’s Sake,” her first album to focus on gospel songs.
For the 88-year-old Channing, the album is a nod to her upbringing in the Christian Science faith. And while she’s less in the spotlight and won’t tour specifically for the release, Channing is performing and speaking at schools across the country to promote her other significant endeavor, the Dr. Carol Channing & Harry Kullijian Foundation for the Arts.
(The “Dr.” derives from an honorary degree in the arts.)


Three years ago, Channing and Kullijian — a childhood sweetheart she reunited with and married in 2003 after 70 years apart — created the foundation to foster arts in education. Not that she expects the children she meets to know her storied Broadway history.

You’re a Broadway musical icon. Why go gospel?
“I’m thrilled and infatuated with the gospel songs my father taught me. We had to travel to Boston and any old town. We’d get in the car and sing, and my mother would tell me those were the happiest times in her life. Spirituals are outlived, way outlived, but they’re the essence of Americana.”

Do you remember when you were in love with Harry 75 years ago?
“People always laugh and say, ‘Well, that’s only puppy love.’ But it’s real to the puppy. All I know is it’s the happiest time in my life. I must say, every time he kisses me I honestly think I’m 12 years old again.”


Do you ever get sick of your signature song?
“I sing ‘Hello, Dolly!’ all the time — everybody wants it. I ask the audience to join me, and they all sing it. They all know the words, on account of Louis Armstrong. I’ll never forget it. I’m still in love with the Broadway show of it.”
You’ve been performing for decades. Why are you still nervous?
“Oh, gosh, my stage fright is just terrible.
Some people don’t realize what a delicate craft it is. It’s an art to reach the audience. They’ve saved their hard-earned money, gotten baby sitters, driven in from everywhere — long distances, short distances, gotten on the subway. All you know is you’ve got to reach them.
You’ve got to keep your mind on lifting their lives, not my life. I’m not there for my own pleasure.”

Caroline O'Connor made her Broadway debut in November 2002 in Chicago playing merry murderess Velma Kelly, a role she also played in the Australian production, where she was awarded the MO Award and the Green Room Award for Best Actress in a Musical.
O'Connor received an Olivier Award nomination for her performance as Mabel Normand in the West End production of Jerry Herman's Mack and Mabel, and her other theatrical credits include roles in West Side Story, Piaf and Bombshells. The actress-singer-dancer portrayed Nini Legs in acclaimed film "Moulin Rouge," and her solo recordings include "What I Did for Love," "A Tribute to Piaf" and "Stage to Screen."

Who Has an EGOT? (Source:Sharon Knolle)


The question was raised on last week's '30 Rock,' so we've just got to know: Who has scored that amazing feat of winning an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony award, a.k.a., the rare and elusive EGOT?

The Academy Award wins, you probably know. The Emmy wins might surprise you (did they really give out Emmys for 'The Muppet Show?')
As for the Grammys, well, let's just say 'Spoken Word' has gotten a lot of actors in the door on that one.

Being a prolific bunch, there's also a Dame, a Knight and, between them, more awards and honors than you can shake a heavy statuette at.

Here now is the list of EGOT winners, in chronological order:

1. Richard Rodgers (composer): Oscar ('It Might as Well be Spring' from 'State Fair,' 1945); Tony ('South Pacific,' 1950); Grammy ('The Sound of Music,' 1960); Emmy ('Winston Churchill: The Valiant Years,' 1962)

5. Audrey Hepburn (actress): Oscar ('Roman Holiday,' 1953); Tony ('Ondine,' 1954); Emmy ('Gardens of the World with Audrey Hepburn,' 1993); Grammy (Best Spoken Word Children's Album, 'Audrey Hepburn's Enchanted Tales,' 1994)
6. Marvin Hamlisch (composer): Oscar ('The Way We Were' and 'The Sting,' 1973); Grammy ('The Way We Were,' 1974); Tony (1976); Emmy ('Barbra Streisand: The Concert,' 1995).

7. Jonathan Tunick (composer): Oscar ('A Little Night Music,' 1977); Emmy ('Night of 100 Stars,' 1982); Grammy (Best Musical Arrangement, 'No One is Alone,' 1988); Tony (Outstanding Orchestration for 'Passion' 1994)

Nine, review

Nine, Rob Marshall’s film adaptation of a Broadway Show, which stars Daniel Day-Lewis and Penelope Cruz amongst others, is a ravishing looking beast.


By Matt Wolf

Rob Marshall; Daniel Day-Lewis; Penelope Cruz; Nicole Kidman; Rating: * * * *

The screen rebirth of the stage musical continues with Nine, Rob Marshall’s smart, sexy, occasionally sorrowful film adaptation of the 1982 Broadway show about an Italian movie director who won’t grow up - and when it comes to women just can’t say no. On Broadway, the show has gathered something of a cult following. So it has in musical theatre circles in London, where the Donmar mounted the local premiere in 1996.



Now along comes the Full Hollywood Treatment, with an Italian-accented Daniel Day Lewis cast unexpectedly - and brilliantly - as the crisis-plagued Guido Contini, who has a movie due to start shooting in ten days. The problem? Not only has Guido yet to write a single word of the script, but he is juggling the increasingly clamorous demands of various women, ranging from his mother (an impossibly elegant Sophia Loren) to Carla, his mistress (Penelope Cruz, all long, writhing legs and frayed nerves).


Guido’s muse, the screen siren Claudia (Nicole Kidman, hair tumbling like a follicular waterfall), figures tantalisingly on film posters all over town - the setting is Rome and environs, ca. 1965 - while his neglected wife, Luisa, none too patiently looks on. Marion Cotillard brings a misty-eyed intensity to that role while batting one of the composer Maury Yeston’s most shimmering numbers, “My Husband Makes Movies,” out of the ballpark.

On stage, the show functions as a series of turns threaded together by the adult Guido’s reckoning with his emotionally arrested self; the title, “Nine,” embraces both the play’s celluloid source, Fellini’s era-defining “8-1/2,” and the age at which young Guido was initiated into sex by a local whore (a part taken on screen by a devouringly libidinous Fergie, of The Black Eyed Peas).

Its narrative bolstered by screenwriters Michael Tolkin and the late Anthony Minghella, the film for all its flights of carnal fancy sweeps us into Guido’s protracted nervous breakdown.
His head often bowed in desperation or shame, Day Lewis has charisma to burn as a creator who is all burned out, and his scenes with costume designer, and confidante, Lilli (Judi Dench at her warmest and most wry) keep us on the side of a damaged soul who in lesser hands could simply be a narcissist.
Best of all, this ever-protean actor can, it turns out, sing.

The result makes for a far more introspective work than “Chicago,” Marshall’s last stage-to-screen musical transfer, and one best approached not as a literal transcription of the show but as its own ravishing-looking beast. (Quite a few of the songs from the stage version have been cut.) And as if to honour his own theatrical origins, Broadway veteran Marshall near the end groups the performers on and around a balcony in what amounts to a would-be curtain call, and why not? All concerned should take a bow.
