Anderson Cooper is about to make his Broadway debut.
The "Anderson Cooper 360" host has joined the 50th anniversary revival of the musical "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" as the pre-recorded voice of the narrator, reports Playbill.
News legend Walter Cronkite provided the voice for the 1995 revival, which starred Matthew Broderick. "Harry Potter" actor Daniel Radcliffe headlines the Cooper production, which begins performances at New York's Al Hirschfeld Theatre on February 26.
Meanwhile, Melissa Etheridge is set to rock the Green Day musical "American Idiot" at Broadway's St. James Theatre. The singer will join the cast for one week as St. Jimmy, a ghostly apparition who helps fuel lead character Johnny's drug addiction. Etheridge will step into the role from February 1 – 6, while Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong takes a vacation from the show.
“Billie Joe and I always believed that it would be incredible to have a woman take on the role of St. Jimmy," the show's director, Michael Mayer, said in a statement. "This character is seductive, thrilling and dangerous. Melissa Etheridge is all that and so much more. She's a rock icon and we couldn't be more thrilled that she's bringing her immense talent to 'American Idiot.'"

Tremendous issues here. I'm very glad to see your post. Thanks so much and I am taking a look forward to touch you. Will you please drop me a mail?
fantastic publish, very informative. I wonder why the opposite experts of this sector don't notice this. You should proceed your writing. I'm confident, you have a great readers' base already!
Yes...Broadway definitely needs an influx of NGGERS.
Etheridge is a uselessLEZBO and Cooper is a FA GG OT. What a couple of losers.
I agree with those that said "shame on cnn for allowing this". The hatred on both sides is unreal. Just love one another. We are all the same!!
Wow. Apes who smoke crack and collect welfare checks...is that what black people are? Truth be told, there are barely any people of color headlining Broadway shows.
Black people have to sew white people hair in because they are not happy with the nappy head they have.
I thought that bald eagle etheridge had kicked the TURDBUCKET. She too is a NGGER.
Notice how cnn kept up the comment written about white on here and took down the ones about the n*i*g? Why didn't they take down the white lips comments, etc. n & g & e @ s lovers!
I like how an article about the arts has turned into a racist tirade. You all should be ashamed of yourselves. And congratulations, you are the problem.
first ..it looks like there is a lot of American Idiots on this page for different reasons. Broadway was the topic ...but this was not the tryouts for it. Keep the drama for another play. I don't care for Melissa E at all she is a real loser, uses people so she can right her music, and forgets to take care of all her children. So I gues she is an american idiot. Everyone try to have a better day I know crap happens but their lives suck so don't let them get ya down.
White people please do not even pretend that white folks don't get welfare checks too. Yall taught everybody else how to get a check.
Hey cnn- stellar job of moderating this thread. It clearly states that comments will not appear on this blog until "they have been reviewd and deemed appropriate for posting". So you censor a few curse words and let awful and racist comments fly back and forth unlimited? Sad. Anyway, all I really had to say is AC will make a great Playbill. Etheridge as St. Jimmy? I dunno...
U guys are all crazy. The inital subject was Broadway and we get on the racist train. U all should be ashamed. Now i know how the next generation is growing to be.By the way I think Melissa will do a great job being Saint Jimmy.
i'm sure someone will find this one funny. i come here and see all this... stuff, so i just type "what the h- happened here?" needless to say out of all the posts here, MINE was censored.. by the way **** you cnn. not only did you print another weak story... well look at whats happening. you guys are in the gutter. get your **** together.
Wow.....Kelly...those words will come back to haunt you someday. I can tell you've never been a serious student of the Bible thus your opinion has no creedence. You're basically flappin your yap about a subject you know nothing of. And doing it hatefully as well. What is it YOU'RE hiding?
wait... what the hell just happened?
I very confused as to how an article about broadway caused so many racial comments. Imma clear this up. You're all idiots. There, now everyone can be happy.

@Karen, please do the world a favor and go kill yourself so a better black person who has a heart gets the welfare money that the white man and other races work to give to the likes of people like you. Its clear you don't work because you are up all night writing your hate. Please stay off the crack because its really making you to be a bitter and heartless person.
Jesus is a man made myth, THEREFORE, you are a wack job just like the rest of the religious nuts.
Religion....The oldest con in history.
Jesus was a....Mexican?
Did he drive a low rider camel?
You are a dumb Moon Cricket.
Go smoke some more crack.
I can not believe what I am reading! Shame on CNN for even posting this junk. Food for thought: Jesus Christ was a Jew, therefore His skin was light brown. People, be very careful what you say! Every word you speak will be given back to you on judgement day.
LOL crazy white people
Furthermore dennis...u really need 2 scroll back 2 dbeginning of this topic sir and mayb u'll realize where this originated.....
Hey dennis notice the racistjokes here... This is what ur kids listen 2 @ school...these r d same jokes that they tell after u exit a room or enter a restaurant...i dont set our race back....white people r racist
You are a sad caricature of the state of our culture. You don't represent us and we don't want you to.
Karen, you are a disgrace to our race. I have been married to a white woman for 10 yrs and she is the best thing that has happened to me. You are full of hate and you are very scorned. Your comments and the rest only sets us back. You need help. Please see a doctor to talk about your anger issues before you hurt yourself or someone else.
I dont jeopardize my life 2 look different...so I think that would make me d smart 1...but you all cant handle the truth...n jack nickolson voice...ha ha ha
Hey bob...ur comment speak volume....ever noticed who i'm conversating with...guess we r all fluent in ebonics uh sir
I agree Bob.
Ebonics is a language only imbeciles can speak, and Karen is obviously fluent.
Karen, you are really, really, REALLY DUMB.
Why is CNN allowing this to continue? How less classy and in the gutter will this go? The most disgusting thing I've ever seen. Shame on all of you.
Ahhh the hatred. Do you people hate your lives so much you have to think of black jokes that aren't even funny? Seriously? The old days are over. No more KKK. No more Nazis. And the white house isn't white anymore hahahaah. Its time to realized you little white supremicist arent superior to anyone.

Feel free to mix in a book, ok?
I'm license 2 take care of d white woman after they plastic surgery turns out bad...or their cancerous moles appear from tanning trying 2 get black skin
What in the hell is wrong with all of you idiots? And is ANYONE at CNN.com paying attention to what's going on here?
Ha ha ha....rotf lol I wish u could me...white woman want 2 b me...no makeup beautiful skin...nice round azz....white women compliment on my skin...so I hv room 2 talk..
Education...michael jackson bleached his skin thats it... But he didnt represent us..
Patrick Ewing is the missing link
And frank your white women love them some apes as u say.lol
Why is it that folks always want to refer to blacks as apes and monkeys? Do your research on primates. There are primates that have red faces with long narrow noses and white fur. Is this wear whites originated? Food for thought.
Lol..meant looking back
White tan 2 get darker skin 2 look black...
White take fat from thier azzes...n put n their lips 2 look black
Whites hv thin lips and straight..a monkey hv thin lips n straight hair
Michael we all know you are desperately seeking attention. That's why you are making your ignorant comments. So here you are you've been acknowledged.
How embarrassing to see such ignorance, hate,bigotry and ugliness posted. I guess when youre low down, thts your only refuge.
Hey Adam.. where's Steve?
too many whites singing in broadway for real
we need a dude like wesley snipes in broadway or wayne brady. even mike tyson would be cool.
we need more black dudes in broadway roles. were always in a raisen in the sun. lets get real now folks.
Are you a moron? Get a damn life!
Please do us all a favor and crawl back under whatever Rick from which you came. That type of bigotry and hateful speech is appalling. I hope that someday you understand why saying things like that are just wrong...
Autocorrect... Rock, not Rick
