On and Off Broadway

Kevin Spacey is about to be charged with seven additional sexual assault charges by the Crown Prosecution Service in the UK.  One of the victims claims to have been assaulted repeatedly between 2001 and 2004.  But it was another charge which caught our eye: “The CPS has also authorized one charge of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent.”  The actor is scheduled to appear in person at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on December 16th.  On the positive side, this is likely the first thing Kevin’s had on his calendar since beating that Rapp rap.  Speaking of which…

Anthony Rapp is returning to his off-Broadway roots.  Without You is a one-man musical based on Anthony’s memoir.  Previews will begin at the New World Stages on January 14th, and opening night will be on January 25th – which just happens to be 27 years to the day from the first public performance of Rent.

Broadway history is about to be made.  Jinkx Monsoon – a Drag Race alum – will be making her Broadway debut in Chicago.  Well, that’s no big surprise – several cocks in frocks have trod the boards as Mary Sunshine.  But Jinkx will not be taking on the role of the gender-bending reporter.  She’ll play Matron “Mama” Morton, making her the first drag queen to assume that role on Broadway (I’m sure it was played by some men in various prison productions).  “I cannot stress enough that this has been a lifelong dream of mine.  To be making my Broadway debut, as my favorite role, in one of my favorite shows – that lifelong dream is coming true and then some.”  Her eight-week run begins January 16th.
