"Inside/Out: Toni Braxton" premieres on VH1 Aug. 17 at 10 AM ET. Repeat broadcasts are scheduled for Aug. 17 at 10 PM ET and Aug. 18 at 12 AM ET; check local listings. The new series "Inside/Out" follows the Grammy winning star through a six-month period, which culminates in her return to Broadway in the hit Disney musical. The program also focuses on Braxton's pregnancy as VH1's cameras exclusively document doctor's visits and the birth of her second child as well as Aida dance rehearsals and her opening-night celebration. Six-time Grammy Award winner Toni Braxton joined the company of Aida June 30. Two other stars joined the cast of the long-running musical that day as well: Will Chase as Radames, the Egyptian captain in love with the Nubian princess; and Mandy Gonzalez as Amneris. Braxton's last performance is scheduled for Nov. 16.
Aida — at the Palace Theatre — features a book by Linda Woolverton, Robert Falls and David Henry Hwang, sets and costumes by Bob Crowley, lighting by Natasha Katz, choreography by Wayne Cilento and direction by Robert Falls. The Palace Theatre is located at Broadway and 47th Street, and tickets are available by calling the Disney hotline, (212) 307-4747. A Dutch language production of Aida opened in Amsterdam in the fall of 2001, and a touring company is currently making its way across the country.
