BAT favorite Anne Hathaway is to perform Viola this summer in Shakespeare in the Park's Twelfth Night. Be prepared to camp out and get into fistfights over your place in the line: Her co-stars will include Audra McDonald, Raúl Esparza, and Michael Cumpsty, as reported in Wednesday's New York Times. So get ready for a lot of references to Mrs. Shakespeare.
But that's not all! Hathaway is now linked to Get Happy, a Weinstein Company stage and screen project based on a biography of Judy Garland.
Hathaway has great potential as a performer in musicals. Enticing rumors persist of Hathaway performing in a revival of Promises, Promises.
Lately she's been involved in Tim Burton's promising Alice in Wonderland.
