Hmmm...first "The Simpsons" makes a musical comedy out of the Betty Ford Clinic; then "Chicago Hope" goes musical when Dr. Shutt has an aneurysm; now Broadway even comes to TV game shows! Oct. 20-24 will be "Broadway Week" on ABC-TV's "Wheel Of Fortune," with current Broadway stars making special appearances on the program. Among the celebs: Faith Prince (The King And I, Oct. 21); Ross Lehman (A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, Oct. 21 & 23) and Larry Keith (Titanic).
The show airs in NYC on channel 7 at 7:30 PM (ET). Check local listings for other schedules around the country.
