first_img Sutton Foster Here’s a quick roundup of stories you may have missed today.Get Up Close & Personal With Cheyenne JacksonStage and screen star Cheyenne Jackson (The Performers, Finian’s Rainbow, Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks) will be heating things up at the Café Carlyle this winter as he makes his debut at the venue. The actor and singer-songwriter will play January 13, 2015 through January 24. Iconic Blondie headliner Debbie Harry will also be headlining at the Café this season, rocking out on the Upper East Side for two weeks, March 24 through April 4.Second Stage Eyeing Purchase of Helen HayesA flurry of news regarding the Helen Hayes Theatre today. The long-running Rock of Ages announced that it was closing there early next year, while Second Stage confirmed that it was looking to buy the Broadway venue. “We are excited to move forward with our plans to finalize our purchase of the Helen Hayes Theatre,” Casey Reitz, the executive director of Second Stage Theatre, told The New York Times, adding that they would “announce our plans and a timeline in the near future.” With 597 seats, the Helen Hayes is the smallest theater on Broadway and is currently independently owned.Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In The Heights…in GermanAfter an acclaimed run in London, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony-winning musical In The Heights will receive its German language premiere in Austria. The musical is set to play Vienna’s Konservatorium Wien University in May 2015. So we’re guessing the tuner is now Un Das Heights ? (Forgive us if we’re wrong, we ended up learning all the words to The Sound of Music instead of basic German, which until now, proved more useful in our choice of career.)Sutton Foster’s Turkey Weekend PlansBroadway fave Sutton Foster will be spicing up Thanksgiving weekend for those lucky enough to be in the Washington D.C. area.
