ZUMA / MGN WASHINGTON – Congressman Tom Reed (R) says he is heartbroken after Trump supporters breached the U.S. Capitol Wednesday during the electoral vote count, resulting in the fatal shooting of a woman.Reed, who represents New York’s 23rd Congressional District, says the violence is absolutely unacceptable.“My heart breaks for our nation right now,” Reed said in a statement. “Our country and its beautiful democracy is better than this. Our Constitution calls for the civil transition of power and though we may not agree with the election results, we must agree to always act with honor and civility towards all.”“We believe in the right to peacefully protest, but we must emphatically reject these horrible instances of physical attacks on our governing institutions and let democracy proceed.” Metropolitan police confirmed Wednesday evening the person who was shot at the U.S. Capitol as dozens of supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the building and violently clashed with police has died.The exact circumstances surrounding the shooting were unclear. Graphic social media video shows a mob inside the Capitol building when a shot is heard and a woman wearing a Trump banner around her neck can be seen lying motionless on the floor.She was transported to a local hospital but died of her injuries. The victim’s identity has not been publicly released.Metropolitan police told NewsNation they are heading the investigation into her death, but declined to give any additional details.The shooting came as dozens of Trump supporters breached security perimeters and entered the U.S. Capitol as Congress was meeting, expected to vote and affirm Joe Biden’s presidential win.

After appearing in the New York Philharmonic’s Sweeney Todd concert, original Murder For Two cast member Jeff Blumenkrantz has returned to the scene of the crime—New World Stages, that is—to play all of the suspects in the hit off-Broadway musical comedy on March 17. He succeeds composer Joe Kinosian, who took over the role during Blumenkrantz’s hiatus. Directed by Scott Schwartz, Murder For Two features music by Kinosian, lyrics by Kellen Blair and a book by both Kinosian and Blair. Blumenkrantz reunites with original cast member Brett Ryback in the zany musical comedy. Murder For Two is a murder mystery with a twist: one actor (Ryback) investigates the crime, the other plays all the suspects (Kinosian) and they both play the piano. Blumenkrantz has appeared on Broadway in Into the Woods, The Threepenny Opera, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, A Class Act and Damn Yankees. His film and TV credits include The Good Wife, Will and Grace, 30 Rock and Ugly Betty. Murder For Two Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on June 29, 2014 View Comments
What happens when you put five Tony-nominated leading ladies in a room together? (No, they don’t have a Hunger Game-style fight to the death. How dare you even suggest that?) As we found out in this fascinating New York Times interview, they gossip, spill their secrets and of course, dreamcast each other. The Bridges of Madison County star Kelli O’Hara, Violet headliner Sutton Foster, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical star Jessie Mueller, If/Then leading lady Idina Menzel and A Night With Janis Joplin’s Mary Bridget Davies shared some interesting tidbits we never knew before! Check out what we learned below. 6. They’re forced to tweet In the age of social media, it’s not enough for a Broadway star to show up to rehearsal and perform eight times a week. Now, she also has to tweet. “Bridges is the first time in my life where I opened a Twitter account,” O’Hara said, adding, “They basically forced me to.” How does Foster keep her Twitter page interesting? “I just tweet about food. Food and cookies and my dog,” she said. Amen, sister. Jessie Mueller 1. Idina Menzel was “too witchy” for Into the Woods Yes. You read that correctly. “I auditioned for the last revival of [Into the Woods], before Wicked,” Menzel recalled. “I learned ‘Last Midnight.’ When I was done, James Lapine said, ‘Well, that was witchy.’ I left crying. I thought, I can’t pull off Stephen Sondheim.” Don’t worry, Idina. You’ll always be our number-one witch. 5. Sutton Foster’s alter ego is Toni Collette On stage, Violet star Sutton Foster is a force to be reckoned with. How does she channel that fabulousness? By pretending to be Toni Collette, of course. “What would Toni Collette do?” she asks herself. But she’s not the only one—Menzel pretends she’s Glenn Close! View Comments Star Files Kelli O’Hara 4. Jessie Mueller never thought she was pretty She’s now a glamorous Broadway star, but before making it big, Beautiful star Jessie Mueller didn’t feel so, uh, beautiful. “Growing up, I never felt like the pretty girl,” the Tony nominee explained. “Carole King felt that [too].” Idina Menzel Sutton Foster Mary Bridget Davies 2. Kelli O’Hara wanted to sing like Sutton Foster The Bridges of Madison County star has one of the most gorgeous voices we can think of, but the lights are always brighter on the other side of the Great White Way. “There was a time when I thought, ‘If only I could sing like Sutton,’” O’Hara told the Times. Thankfully, there’s room on Broadway for both of them! 3. Mary Bridget Davies can tap dance A Night with Janis Joplin star Mary Bridget Davies, the newcomer of the bunch, has more tricks up her sleeve than wailing Janis Joplin tunes. “My favorite [role] would be Reno Sweeney [in Anything Goes],” Davies said. “I love tap.” Are we the only ones imagining Foster teaching Davies the entire eight-minute Anything Goes tap sequence at a sleepover? Just us? View All (5)
Once Upon a Time is an American fairy tale drama series that takes place in the seaside town of Storybrooke Maine, whose residents are popular fairy tale characters. The show premiered in fall 2011. View Comments It would make sense. Disney, which made Frozen, also owns ABC. So Elsa and no doubt Anna, will probably be making their presence felt on the small screen long before they make their previously reported move to Broadway. Before we go any further, spoiler alert if you haven’t seen the season three finale of ABC’s Once Upon a Time, which aired May 11. Still with us? It seems that Frozen’s Elsa (well, her back, with that oh-so-recognizable blonde hair and blue dress) made a surprise appearance at the end of the aforementioned episode. According to the Daily Mail, it therefore looks like Storybrooke could be in for a cold spell next season, with Elsa joining the cast of characters on the hit show.
