First details about the show are coming out–though these are from Riedel, so just know that it’s filtered through his lens.
After Midnight has apparently landed the opening slot and will feature Fantasia, k. d. lang, Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight. (Now you know how it landed the opener.)
Rumors persist that the Beautiful performance will feature Carole King.
Disney hasn’t decided if they’re doing “Friend Like Me” yet or not due to logistics.
Sting will perform from the forthcoming The Last Ship. (Boo–celebrate this season’s work, don’t hawk next season’s.)
More details from more reliable sources will probably start emerging soon.
Hugh Jackman might join in on the “After Midnight” opener, as well as perform a duet with Neil Patrick Harris.
NPH will be performing a number from “Hedwig & the Angry Itch,” of course.
There’s also supposed to be a “megafinale” performance featuring multiple nominated and nonnominated Broadway productions from this past season.
