Lorelai Gilmore Is Now a Blonde Doll

Vance at

Lorelai Gilmore goes Blonde! The first cast photo for the upcoming Broadway revival of Guys and Dolls is out!

From l-r: Oliver Platt as Nathan Detroit, Lauren Graham as Miss Adelaide, Craig Bierko as Sky Masterson and Kate Jennings Grant as Sarah Brown.

I'm still not sure how excited I am about the rest of the cast (Oliver Platt is great as character sidekicks (like in Frost/Nixon but he annoys me whenever he's the lead, I've never been a fan of Bierko and I have no idea who Grant is) but Canadian director Des McAnuff and choreographer Sergio Trujillo (also Canadian and both will be returning to Stratford later this spring to work on A Funny Thing Happened on the Way To the Forum and West Side Story (a different version to the upcoming Broadway revival), respectively) are helming this revival so I'm very very curious.

Plus I'd love to see Lorelai sing.

Gak! My office is literally a few doors down from "Guys and Dolls"! They just put up the Marque a few weeks ago. I have a crush on Craig Bierko. Maybe I can lure him with my feminine charms?

Oooh, then you HAVE to go see it and tell me how it is! You take Craig and I'll take Nick Adams (who will be a chorus boy) and become BFF with Lauren!

Vance, I pretty much never do musical theater, but for a blonde Loralie Gilmore, I will put in the time and money.
