first_imgFind the Balance with Sierra BoggessStarts October 15 at 54 BelowThink middle children are all misfits and Jan Brady sad sacks? Let Sierra Boggess shatter that illusion by—lucky for us—singing her butt off. The Little Mermaid and The Phantom of the Opera alum is spending four nights Finding the Balance (The Journey of Being a Middle Child), an intimate show that’s pretty likely to include the words, “You are enough, you are so enough, it’s unbelievable how enough you are.” Click for tickets! Star Files Say Hello to a New Miss HedwigOctober 16 at the Belasco TheatreHedwig and the Angry Inch has had no problem finding talented leading men to don the monstrous wig and fishnets. First, it was the one and only Neil Patrick Harris. Then Andrew Rannells blew us away. Now, the versatile Michael C. Hall takes over. Folks who only know the actor from his intense work in Six Feet Under and Dexter: You’re in for a big treat. Click for tickets! View Comments Start the Day with Glenn CloseOctober 16, check local listingsThe talented Glenn Close, star of A Delicate Balance, visits Live! with Kelly and Michael to chat about the upcoming, highly anticipated revival. An Edward Albee play as the conversation centerpiece in a perky morning show? That’s good TV! Will Kelly be a puddle of tears by the end of the segment? Will Michael chat with Close about the Mets, her longtime passion? You’ll have to tune in to find out. Sierra Boggess Celebrate the Holidays Early with IdinaOctober 14 in stores and onlineOh no, not another holiday album! Wait, relax, guys. This one is from Wicked and Frozen favorite Idina Menzel, not barking dogs or some 80’s has-been. Holiday Wishes features Menzel and those glorious pipes singing such classics as “Silent Night” and “The Christmas Song.” Best of all, it’s released in plenty of time to be your holiday soundtrack for interminable holiday traffic jams and last-minute mall visits. Hey you, trying to muster up some enthusiasm for baseball—stop living a lie. It’s time to get up off the couch and see what Broadway has to offer this week. There’s a morning chat with Glenn Close, Idina Menzel’s holiday album (yes, really!), and the arrival of a brand new Hedwig. See? Way more fun than baseball. Check it all out in this week’s Datebook.
