“Achy Breaky” Billy Ray Cyrus as Billy Flynn in Chicago on Broadway.

All Tickets Inc., with group discounts and comps for all Broadway shows has the latest stage news. Groups can get comps and big discounts for Chicago, Peter and the Starcatcher and all other Broadway plays and musical. We have three hot New York stage news items. The first is on Chicago’s latest cast member, the second on two Peter Pans who recently visited Peter and the Starcatcher and the third focuses on Academy Award winning actress Holly Hunter.

Achy Breaky Chicago

The long-running, Tony-winning musical Chicago welcomes Billy Ray Cyrus to the boards. Cyrus, who gave us the hit “Achy Breaky Heart” and starred on a TV show with daughter Milley, plays attorney Billy Flynn for seven weeks. He’ll be in the show until December 23. Cyrus, 51, worked hard learning the part.
During a break he sipped a Red Bull and said, “You can’t tire a man out who’s already tired, Sometimes you’ve just got to step up to the plate to learn something new.”
Chicago, which is part of the All Tickets all-inclusive and all-exclusive COMP Promo, is the longest running American musical on Broadway. It includes such hits as ‘All That Jazz” and “Mr. Cellophane.”

Duncan and Rigby Catching Peter

Long time Peter Pan Cathy Rigby is a fan of Peter and the Starcatcher

The Matrons of the Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up have both showed up to see the Tony-winning, hit play Peter and the Starcatcher. Sandy Duncan and Cathy Rigby have both been to see the play, which was adapted from Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling 2004 children’s adventure book. It tells the story of how an English orphan became Peter Pan.
Of their visit, the man who plays Peter, Adam Chanler-Berat said,“It felt like Peter was out there watching me do Peter. Sometimes, to motivate yourself, you pretend like the person that you’re playing is out there in the audience that night and in some ways it felt like that.” What did the two female Peters think? Both loved it.
Duncan, who was in the audience on October 11 for the second time gushed, “I can’t say enough about it,” and Rigby, who enjoyed the show on October 14, observed, “It was one of the best things I’ve ever seen and I don’t usually gush but I’m protective of the part because I love it so much.”

Holly Hunter Off-Broadway

Actress Holly Hunter will star in a new play at one of Off-Broadway’s Sandy-damaged theatres—the Flea Theater in TriBeCa. She will play in The Vandal, which will be directed by Jim Simpson, the Flea’s founder and artistic director. The begins previews January 18 and opens January 31. Ms. Hunter’s costars will include Zach Grenier and Noah Robbins. The Vandals is written by Hamish Linklater and is described “as a play about death and vandalism in Kingston, N.Y.”
