Stage Addiction: And the Prisoner of Azkaban is Starring in Annie!

Here it is: Equus, aka Harry Potter and a Very Friendly Horse, aka Daniel Radcliffe: Live in the Buff. Coming to a London theatre near you this February. Oy gevalt.

As if the hysteria around Dreamgirls could get any crazier: before the highly anticipated motion picture makes its nationwide debut on Christmas Day, the film will roll out in a "road show" of three exclusive one-week engagements beginning December 15 at New York's Ziegfeld Theater, Los Angeles's Cinerama Dome, and San Francisco's Metreon. Each theater will hold displays on the making of the movie, including designs from Academy Award-winning production designer John Myhre and costume designer Sharen Davis. In addition, moviegoers will have the opportunity to purchase exclusive merchandise and the film's soundtrack in the lobby. The $25 reserved-seat ticket also includes a limited edition program. That thunder you hear in the distance are the hooves of 10 million show queens who are running to get in line right now.

As our spies suggested two weeks ago, the London hit Frost/Nixon, starring Frank Langella, will open on Broadway April 22. Furthermore, as we predicted two months ago, the John Kander-Fred Ebb musical Curtains will open at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre in March. Are we good or what?

Steve Kazee will be the leading man opposite Audra McDonald in next spring's Broadway revival of 110 in the Shade. Who is Steve Kazee, you ask? Yeah, we'd never heard of him either.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT #1: Tickets for The Apple Tree, starring Kristin Chenoweth (Wicked), Bryan d'Arcy James (Titanic), and Marc Kudisch (Assassins), are now on sale for the run at Studio 54. The limited run is for real, people (no extensions are planned), so grab them while you can.

The LAByrinth Theatre Company will have the starriest fundraiser of the fall next Monday, when they gather to play Celebrity Charades. (Yes, charades. Now a spectator sport. We will watch famous people do anything, I guess.) The lineup includes LTC co-artistic director Philip Seymour Hoffman, company members Eric Bogosian, Sam Rockwell, and Daphne Rubin-Vega, and special guests Bob Balaban, Bobby Cannavale, Erika Christensen, Billy Crudup, Dana Delany, Rachel Dratch, Noah Emmerich, Edie Falco, Gina Gershon, Josh Hamilton, Jay Hernandez, Anthony Mackie, Juliana Margulies, S. Epatha Merkerson, Rosie Perez, Cynthia Rowley, Justin Theroux and Robin Williams. Too bad they're not playing Celebrity.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT #2: The Spring Awakening cast recording will be available on December 12th, just in time for your Christmas shopping. Hell yeah.

What could possibly be gayer than The New York Gay Men's Chorus Holiday Spectacular? How about having Charles Busch (Vampire Lesbians of Sodom) and Michael McElroy (Rent) as guest stars? I mean, the only thing missing at this point is Liza and some chenille throw pillows.
