We are still grinning ear to ear after two amazing performances from the touring cast of Chicago.  But our season is just getting started.  With so many big name musicals coming to the Queen City, I thought we could check in with some updates from the tours, many of which are just launching their national tours.

How does Constantine Maroulis feel about playing two roles in Jekyll & Hyde?  Which young actress won the role of Sister Act‘s Deloris Van Cartier?  Which Les Misérables star was “surprise frenched” by an actress on stage, and who’s taking on the role of Frank Abignale, Jr., in Catch Me If You Can?

Maroulis, the “American Idol” and Tony Award-nominee (Rock of Ages), recently spoke to Playbill.com about touring Jekyll & Hyde before it arrives on Broadway April 2013.  “I feel like people are going to be very moved by the show,” Maroulis said. “I don’t think there’s been a definitive production anywhere in the world, and I feel this has the potential to be the one. Now it’s up to me to deliver the goods.”  CLICK HERE to read the full story.

    Five Questions For Sister Act‘s Newest Deloris Van Cartier

It’s the role made famous by Hollywood legend Whoopi Goldberg, but now Ta’Rea Campbell is hitting the road for the next 12 months and portraying her own spin on the diva nun, Deloris Van Cartier.

Campbell is “Fabulous, Baby,” so it’s time to get to know her.  How long has she been singing?  How does she feel stepping in to Whoopi Goldberg’s shoes?  How does she approach this role?  CLICK HERE and get to know Ta’Rea Campbell!

Sister Act is the divine musical comedy that centers around a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look—a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.
