I'm a big broadway fan and the fact one of my idols has made it there, I cry a little. Forever bitter I'll never be able to see her though.

This is SO exciting. I'd love it if we got lots of pictures and maybe she could even go to the Tonys in June? Even People has picked up the story and they don't often feature casting news.

Leighton attending the Tony awards would be amazing. That's great

You're welcome Chris

Loving how much press Leighton is getting for her new role on Broadway.
Such a huge deal for her and no doubt a huge step up in her career as an actress.

I'm interested to see who of her former costars will turn up to support and see her stage debut. This is not something they can watch later on DVD
