Gayest Thing Ever: Patsy Talks Musical Theatre, Sweetie Darling Sweetie

I just squealed. Playbill has reported that “Joanna Lumley, a 2011 Tony nominee for her performance in La Bete, will host a three-part series for BBC Radio 2 entitled Joanna Lumley on Broadway.” If you are any sort of proper theatre queen, you’ll know what I mean.

Apparently she will be interviewing Hal PrinceOscar Hammerstein III, Jim Dale, Joel Grey and directors Michael Mayer and Julie Taymor. For those of you less familiar with the stage work of these theatre giants, it covers everything from Cabaret, The Sound of Music, Spring Awakening, Wicked, Lion King, West Side Story, and on and on.

Playbill.com says: “The series, which takes ‘a historical, theatrical and musical journey down America’s iconic Broadway,’ will debut July 11 at 10 PM London time with a program titled You’ve Got to Be Carefully Taught.” And Patsy, we mean Lumley, is quoted thusly: “I’m delighted to be making my BBC Radio 2 presenting debut on a subject so close to my heart. I adored my time on Broadway and there is nothing so romantic, so evocative and so full of human and theatrical drama as its history.”

For all you fans out there, if you haven’t heard, AbFab is making a final comeback for three new episodes at the end of August. So crack open the Bolly, tune into the BBC, and enjoy.

      I thought BBC stood for big black cock. Then I thought, nah. That would be unlikely. Turns out I was right.
