This is Our Youth may have just closed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still get your celebrity fix on Broadway. Here’s a list of the men and women currently working towards getting the T in their EGOT.
Bradley Cooper in The Elephant Man
Much has been made of Cooper’s turn as John Merrick, the man who was nicknamed “The Elephant Man” after developing a host of serve deformities within the first few years of his life. Before being “rehabilitated” by Frederick Treves, a young surgeon, The Elephant Man made a living as a sideshow attraction. It’s hard to imagine Cooper, one of the sexiest men of American cinema, being mentioned in the same sentence as the words “ugly” and “deformity,” but great actors have a way of rising to a challenge. Performing without any prosthetics or makeup, Cooper twists and contorts into that which he could never be. Prepare to see him as you never have, and perhaps never will again.
On Tuesday, January 6th Manhattan Magazine hosted a cocktail reception and Q&A with actor Ethan Hawke, who graces the cover of their January issue. Held at the new Park Hyatt on 57th Street, the discussion, moderated by Manhattan Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Cristina Cuomo, centered on Hawke’s most recent roles, Golden Globe nomination, upcoming Chet Baker biopic, and documentary on 85 year old pianist Seymour Bernstein.
This past Wednesday, Sonja Morgan of the Real Housewives of New York hosted a private soiree in the heart of Manhattan to celebrate the launch of her new clothing line. As the cover model of the Latina Magazine's "Anniversary Issue," she has much to celebrate. As Sonja’s floor length gown trailed behind her, she was all smiles as she greeted friends walking through the door. She also debuted her new boy toy, a young male model who easily turned a few heads himself. Kristin Taekman, also of the reality shows success, was present to support her friend as she donned one of her own creations. Other partygoers included former White House periodontist Dr. Nicholas Toscano, celebrity caterer Andrea Correale, Seriously Funny Gowns founder Jody Barrett and actress Leesa Rowland.
Internet celeb Dan Bilzerian was arrested at LAX on Tuesday December 9th for allegedly stockpiling the components needed to make a bomb. TMZ has learned that Bilzerian has in his possession ammonium, aluminum powder, and ammonium nitrate mix - ingredients that when combined can act like "pure TNT."
According to documents, a warrant was issued for Bilzerian in connection with explosives possession over a month ago, but remained confidential preceding his arrest. He was released from police custody on Wednesday afternoon, with charges still to be determined.
This has been a vicious year for celeb beefs. From low-blows via instagram to the real life blows in nightclubs (lookin' at you Orlando Bloom and Biebs), it has been a year full of fighting. Here are the biggest celebrity feuds of 2014.
Iggy Azalea vs. Snoop Dogg: This one was a little bit ridiculous - and pretty one sided. Snoop fired shots first with an unwarranted picture on Instgram of "Iggy Azalea without makeup." And after that, well, he hasn't really stopped provoking the Australian rapper. All in all Iggy's been pretty mature about the whole situation, simply asking for an explanation and denying she was "fuming mad" about the situation. Most of Iggy's tweets in response have been deleted - Snoops not so much. Check out the pic that started it all

On November 2nd, the annual TCS New York City Marathon drew thousands to participate in the 26.2 mile run, including several of today's top public figures. Some famous names ran the marathon to support a charity, while others simply came to show their support. Regardless, their appearance was a much-appreciated addition to the electric atmosphere of the race.
Among A-list attendees, top-ten WTA player Caroline Wozniacki ran for the New York Road Runners Team For Kids, and finished in record time at 3:26:22. At the finish line, number one-ranking tennis champ (and close friend) Serena Williams, was waiting.
The SLS Hotel & Casino was the Vegas hotspot over the weekend. Lauren Conrad, Joe Jonas, and Scott Eastwood were just a few of the celebrities spotted having fun at SLS.
Joe Jonas has moved past his boy-band days and is making a name for himself as a DJ. He played his second Vegas set at The Sayers Club on Saturday, Oct. 25th. Lauren Conrad and fiancé William Tell was among the huge crowd enjoying Jonas’ hip-hop beats. Fans had the chance to take pictures with the Jonas Brother and chef, Jose Andres personally delivered desserts to Jonas while he was in the DJ booth.
Newlywed Jenny McCarthy was spotted showing off her huge yellow sapphire diamond engagement ring and wedding band in Primp & Polish in Brooklyn, NY. The SiriusXM host was at the nail salon to support the launch of the new mobile game, Diamond Digger Saga.
Diamond Digger Saga is the newest game from King Digital Entertainment that requires players to dig through diamonds in order to collect gems and other treasures. King is also the creators of other mobile game sensations like Candy Crush Saga and Farm Heroes Saga.
King has partnered with Primp & Polish and Enamel Diction in Los Angeles to create exclusive game-inspired manicure and nail art. McCarthy was all smiles as she showed off her ultra chic “Diamond Digger” manicure.
The adorable teenager we once knew has certainly grown up into quite the troublemaker. This morning, Amanda Bynes was arrested for a DUI in California. The 28 year old actress was said to have appeared disheveled as she was taken into custody. She remained there until 12:44pm and was released on $15,000 bail. As she was already on probation for prior acts of negligence, and this is her 2nd DUI, we predict a stern consequence for her reckless behavior.
The Hairspray actress ran a red light and stopped in the middle of an intersction, which gave the cop an inclination that she was under the influence. After a failed sobriety test, and questions concerning drugs, she was taken into custody and given a hearing date.
