At Super Bowl XLVIII Renee Fleming will be the first opera singer in Super Bowl history to perform the National Anthem. With this divergence from previous performers, who include Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera and Steven Tyler, among others, we wondered: Which Broadway star would you love to see in a Super Bowl halftime show performance?
Playbill.com polled our readers via Facebook and Twitter to see which Broadway superstars they would want to see perform at the Super Bowl halftime show.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart.
