The television talk show, according to press notes, will "celebrate the stars, writers, directors, composers and choreographers who made this a year to remember on Broadway." Segments will focus on The Pajama Game's Michael McKean; the history behind Jersey Boys; Sweeney Todd nominees Patti LuPone and Michael Cerveris; the road from screen to stage for The Color Purple; and History Boys playwright Alan Bennett. The two-hour program will also feature a look at what is now the longest-running show in Broadway history, Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera. And, four top theatre critics will offer a recap of the 2005-2006 theatrical season.
"Breakfast with the Arts" airs from 8-10 AM ET on A&E. Karina Huber hosts. Check local listings or visit www.aetv.com for more information.
