It’s time to rip off your work clothes (preferably like this) and change into sweatpants…because it’s finally Friday! Yay! To celebrate, Broadway.com is bringing you a recap of all the weird stuff that happened this week. From Sarah Jessica Parker’s house-sized closet to the food obsessions of our favorite Broadway stars, it’s all right here in the Lessons of the Week.Matt Morrison & Adam Jacobs Are in a CultBefore going the clean-cut route in Aladdin and Glee, these Broadway bros were apparently involved in some dark stuff. In college at NYU, the stars belonged to a creepy sounding group called “The Tribe,” which Jacobs joked was “a secret cult.” Hey, you guys need some more members? We’ll drink that Kool-Aid any day of the week.The Secret Brought Sailors to BroadwayHow do you get a musical on Broadway? No, don’t bother asking for donations from your rich friends—just pick up a copy of The Secret! You know, that book from your aunt that you re-gifted to Goodwill 10 years ago? On the Town’s Jay Armstrong Johnson insists that the Law of Attraction got the show to Broadway. You think if we put this on our vision board, he’ll show up too?Wanna See If/Then? Pray.If your If/Then vision board doesn’t score you tickets to the hit musical, saying a Hail Mary might help. James Snyder took a field trip to the If/Then lottery this week and discovered that praying actually helped one hopeful audience member snag tickets. Hey, it worked for Jean Valjean. Didn’t work so well for Tricia in A Chorus Line, though.Glenn Close Is Still Ready For Her Close-UpMr. DeMille, it might have been two decades since the three-time Tony winner appeared in Sunset Boulevard, but she’s still making it clear she’d love to reprise the role of Norma Desmond in the film adaptation. You’ve convinced us, Glenn! Now you’ve just gotta convince the Material Girl.Jeremy Jordan Has a Secret TalentThe Last Five Years movie star is really great at a lot of things, including nailing that high note in “Santa Fe” and growing beards. But did you know he can also drive while simultaneously ripping his clothes off and making out with Anna Kendrick? That’s some serious coordination, Jeremy. Like, Cups-level coordination.Kelli O’Hara Needs Side-Eye LessonsBroadway darling Kelli O’Hara is about to become a TV darling, too! The Tony nominee will play, um, Mrs. Darling in the Peter Pan telecast on NBC. Will Sound of Music star Laura Benanti show O’Hara how to steal scenes with her shady side-eye? Will the world make thousands of O’Hara GIFs? We’ll find out in 83 days and counting.SJP’s Closet Is Bigger Than Your HouseWe always assumed Sarah Jessica Parker had some old Sex in the City costumes lying around, but it looks like she made off with the whole wardrobe trailer. She and Matthew Broderick (currently in It’s Only a Play) just put their townhouse up for sale, and SJP’s closet is bigger than some small countries. Will we be seeing any of that stuff at the BC/EFA Flea Market, SJP?Broadway Stars Are Food-ObsessedWhen we asked the cast of On the Town what they’d do if they were in New York City for only one day, we were surprised to hear almost every single answer revolved around food. Hot dogs, pretzels, Katz’s, Rosa Mexicano, soul food, the list is endless. Wow, you guys have a one-track mind! (It’s OK, we can’t go a week without thinking about peanut butter cups.)It’s Cool to Sleep Through The RiverA bunch of Broadway stars have made it clear that they’re not exactly thrilled about audience members talking, crinkling wrappers, clinking ice and filming bootlegs during their shows. Hugh Jackman, on the other hand, totally understands if you need to take a nap during The River. Great, we’ll just snuggle up to this, this and this.Don’t Mess with Angry Broadway FansWe’ve said it before and we’ll say it again—never, ever make a Broadway fan angry. Case in point: When the Broadway League ruled that they would not dim marquee lights for the late Joan Rivers, you spoke up and the decision was totally reversed within 24 hours. Great job, guys! This is one gang you do NOT want to run into in a brightly lit alley. View Comments
