Alicia Keys visits typhoon refugees
Grammy-winning singer Alicia Keys has visited an air force base in Manila to bring cheer to hundreds of evacuees from eastern Philippine provinces wracked by Typhoon Haiyan earlier this month.
The American singer distributed crayons and coloring books to children at the Villamor Air Base grandstand, where evacuees from eastern Leyte and Samar provinces arrived via C-130 planes.
Social Welfare Department officer Jane Abello says Keys stayed for about half an hour Monday to chat with evacuees.
Sutton Foster sets Broadway return
One of Broadway’s biggest stars is coming back: Sutton Foster.
The Roundabout Theatre Company said Monday that the two-time Tony Award winner will star in the musical “Violet” directed by Leigh Silverman.
Previews begin in March with an opening slated for April 20 at the American Airlines Theatre.
The show features music by Jeanine Tesori and a book and lyrics by Brian Crawley.
It’s based on the short story “The Ugliest Pilgrim” by Doris Betts, which tells the tale of a disfigured woman’s journey to feel beautiful again.
Foster has won Tonys for “Anything Goes” and “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” Her other credits include “The Drowsy Chaperone” and “Young Frankenstein.”
She most recently moved to California to star in the cable series “Bunheads.”
