Seth's Broadway Chatterbox: Julie Halston and Rory O'Malley Talk Gypsy and The Book of Mormon
Julie Halston and Rory O'Malley joined host Seth Rudetsky for his latest installment of Chatterbox to promote Covenant House's August 19 event Sleep Out: Broadway Edition which will raise money and awareness of the challenges homeless youth face every day. O'Malley gave a sampling of "The Twitter Song" from his current Off-Broadway show Nobody Loves You and chatted about why he decided to leave The Book of Mormon. Halston took a look back at the day she auditioned for a stripper role in Gypsy and couldn't help but laugh off an insulting comment from a much younger actress.
