Broadway Backstage: Fall Preview
NEW YORK -- It's a great season on Broadway with plenty of star power in new dramas, revivals and musicals and you can see it all on "Broadway Backstage: Fall Preview."
The half hour special is hosted by WABC-TV's Reporter/ Anchor, Michelle Charlesworth and Zachary Quinto. The actor currently receiving rave reviews in "The Glass Menagerie," is also known to film lovers as Mr. Spock in the latest "Star Trek" movies and received an Emmy nomination this year for his work in American Horror Story on television. He is also the Executive Producer of the new Robert Redford film, "All is Lost."
Viewers will hear about every new show that's opened during this fall season, plus a sneak peak at a much-anticipated new musical based on the best seller, "Bridges of Madison County" starring Kelli O'Hara. We check out the powerful musical stories of rock legend Janis Joplin and singer/songwriter Carole King.
Plus Shakespeare is big on Broadway; heart throb Orlando Bloom in " Romeo and Juliet," Mark Rylance in a virtuoso performance in the double bill of "Twelfth Night" and " Richard III" and Ethan Hawke as "Macbeth." Among other stars we talk to: Mary Louise Parker, Dule Hill, Fantasia, Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, Daniel Sunjata, and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, just to name a few.
We'll also go behind the scenes at the 'Costume Collection', the go-to source for theatrical costumes, meet the 'King' and 'Queen' of the hit musical "Pippin," who also happen to be a real-life married couple and learn how Broadway dancers are building new careers after their dancing days are over.
