Rodriguez/Getty Images, Caitlin McNaney, Emilio Madrid-Kuser, Joan Marcus & Bruce Glikas) View Comments It’s Friday, and you know what that means: time for the Lessons of the Week! We know it’s hard, but let’s take a collective break from freaking out over Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth’s albums dropping on the same day to take a look at some of the wackiest goings on from the Great White Way you may have missed. From a magical contour queen to whatever happened to all of Al Pacino’s steak dinners, there’s a lot to cover. Study up below! Will Chase Loves the Beatles, Y’Hear?Everyone has a story about their first time hearing the Beatles. Maybe you were screaming at them at the plane. Maybe a Japanese exchange student introduced you to them when you were five years old and living in Kentucky. Something Rotten!’s Will Chase shared his specific Beatles origin story, and we’re gonna need that video of five-year-old Will singing “Hard Day’s Night” with a Kentucky accent. For journalism purposes. Leslie Kritzer Does Not Belong in a HospitalLeslie Kritzer can belt with the best of them, but don’t expect her to treat you in case of an emergency. The new Something Rotten! star confessed she was totally wrong for her role as “Paramedic #2” in the 2009 film Love and Other Impossible Pursuits, claiming she was “just bad.” That’s OK, Leslie, we’re sure you have a better Liza Minnelli impression than any paramedic we know. Lesli Margherita Had Her Own Jellicle BallOh my God. (Ohmagod. OHMAHGAH.) What’s with everyone wanting to be a Jellicle this week? On the Cats red carpet, Lesli Margherita told us all about her days in the sun recreating the Jellicle ball for a competition dance routine, complete with feline costume and trash can to crawl out of. If you stage your own unauthorized revival, Lesli, we’d totally give you another vlog. Do you still have the props? Ubeda Is Officially the Contour QueenWas there ever a cat so fiercely painted as Contour Queen Mr. Mistoffelees? As we learned throughout Tyler Hanes’ Cats vlog, Ricky Ubeda has earned the moniker “Contour Queen” for his impeccable makeup skills. On opening, Hanes made the nickname official, bestowing upon Ubeda a Contour Queen T-shirt. Aw, that’s what true love is all about. Custom T-shirts…and PG-13 fan art. Isaiah Johnson Ate Al Pacino’s SteakIsaiah Johnson is used to working with big stars on stage. He’s also used to eating their dinner. While stopping by for Live at Five, the Color Purple standout revealed that during his time in The Merchant of Venice, he would eat castmate Al Pacino’s leftover steak dinner that he would leave outside his dressing room. Wait. Eating discarded scraps? Crap. We already have enough aspiring cats, Isaiah. Bryan Cranston Would Be Loverly on B’wayWe’ve already seen Bryan Cranston act super presidential (and win a Tony for it), but now the screen favorite wants to sing and dance on the Great White Way. Cranston teased that he has a big musical revival up his sleeves, but that’s all he would say. We can totally see him as Henry Higgins in a My Fair Lady revival. If you want to just go into Cats, Bryan, see Lessons one through four and get in line. Cheno & Dove Cameron Are Still EvilDove Cameron has already played daughter to Mistress of All Evil Kristin Chenoweth, and evil habits die hard. The Disney Channel favorite will play Amber Von Tussle opposite Cheno’s Velma in Hairspray Live!, following their performance together in Descendants. What if they did a Gypsy live telecast next? Watch out, Barbra. Once a Grizabella, Always a GrizabellaMake way for the original contour queen, Ricky. This week, Betty Buckley demonstrated her feline makeup skills with Grey Gardens castmate Bryan Batt. You can take the Tony winner out of Cats, but you can’t take the Cats out of the Tony winner. Thankfully, she’s now in a show playing a character surrounded by 52 cats (plus fleas, cobwebs and virtually no plumbing). Villafañes Can and Villafañes DoBuckley and Ubeda may paint their Jellicle faces for the stage, but Ana Villafañe is a Jellicle all around the streets of New York. On her latest vlog episode, the On Your Feet! headliner dug out her Grizabella costume from her high school production of Cats and rocked the fur across the city. Is it too late to add a new character to the revival? Perhaps Gloria the Conga Cat? Hamilton’s Shuffling Through the HeightsHamilton is reuniting former co-stars…then separating them across state lines. In the Heights faves Mandy Gonzalez and Karen Olivo will werk as Angelica in New York and Chicago, while Shuffle Along’s Brandon Victor Dixon and (fellow Heights alum) Joshua Henry will play Aaron Burr in the two cities. At least we know Heights and Shuffle fans will be satisfied with either production (as long as they’re willing to wait for it).

New sports minister Tracey Crouch says the Premier League should give more of its riches to grassroots football – and says there are a “variety of levers” to encourage the top flight to do so. Crouch told her local radio station in Kent that funding was a “massive issue” for small clubs in her first interview since being appointed in the post-election reshuffle. She flagged up the Premier League’s domestic television rights deal announced in February – mistakenly referring to the figure as £6billion instead of £5.1billion – and claimed that of the £1billion the league has promised will be invested outside of the top flight, only a third of that will go to the real grassroots. Asked on BBC Radio Kent if the Premier League should give more to the grassroots, Crouch said: “I do. We need to be aware that the Premier League is one of the richest leagues in the world and a lot of grassroots clubs – and I have been a member of one for the last eight years – struggle for a whole variety of reasons. Funding is a massive issue particularly around the infrastructure that supports the clubs. “The Premier League has recently just got £6billion worth of TV rights. That’s just the UK rights, it doesn’t include foreign countries buying the rights yet. “They have said they’ll put £1billion into grassroots which sounds fantastic but I guess only a third of that will filter down to what you and I would call grassroots and I don’t think that’s enough. “We can certainly persuade them to put more money into the grassroots and encourage them do to so through a variety of levers.” The Premier League has declined to respond to her comments. Crouch has previously been a strong critic of Qatar hosting the 2022 World Cup and as recently as November Crouch called for the staging of the finals to be reconsidered by football’s world governing body FIFA due to corruption claims, terrorism funding links and the heat. Speaking on Friday morning however, the MP for Chatham and Aylesford said the main issue was that the tournament was played in the winter. She said: “I would rather see it being played in the winter in Qatar than in the summer, I wouldn’t like to play in searing 50 degree heat, let alone watching it in the stadium. “I have been quite vocal in my views on this and if it’s going to be played in the winter then that’s better.” Press Association
