Watch Tovah Feldshuh and Patti LuPone in the New Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Trailer

News   Watch Tovah Feldshuh and Patti LuPone in the New Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Trailer
 
The Broadway favorites appear in the January 13 episode of the television musical comedy.

On January 13 Tony nominee Tovah Feldshuh returns to her recurring role on The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend as Rebecca Bunch’s overbearing Jewish mother, Naomi. But it’s double the trouble (or double the fun, for Broadway fans) as Rebecca travels from her new West Covina, CA, digs to her hometown in New York for a family bar mitzvah. And who, might you ask, is the rabbi of Rebecca’s home congregation? None other than Patti LuPone.

As Playbill previously reported in October, LuPone was a fan of the show before signing on to guest star. “My manager happened to be speaking to Mark Pedowitz, the president of the CW Network, and told him what a big fan I was of the show. He replied, ‘I’ll call you back,’ and the next thing I know is I had an offer!” she told Playbill.com at the time. “I’m thrilled to be a part of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. It’s joyful, uplifting, smart, and funny. And it’s a musical comedy on TV.”

And, as Playbill.com learned at the invite-only November 3 Crazy Ex-Girlfriend concert in New York City, LuPone was “very chill” on set, as described by creator and star Rachel Bloom.

The episode featuring LuPone, Feldshuh, and the rest of the regular cast, including Donna Lynne Champlin (Working: A Musical) and Vincent Rodriguez III (Here Lies Love), airs at 9 PM ET.
