Megan Mullally is best known as Karen Walker on Will & Grace, but has a number of Broadway shows to her credit.
Todd Haimes @ Roundabout keeps mentioning a breech of contract. Will this become a public legal battle?

News
TONYS bring back (some) reviewers!

Renaming the Henry Miller Theater the Stephen Sondheim Theater
Why doesn’t Oscar Hammerstein have a theater? (Hammerstein Ballroom is named after his grandfather and is not really a legit house.)
It is only inevitable that Andrew Lloyd Webber will have a theater. He is a major theater owner on the West End and there is not one named after him, yet.
Miracle Worker Closing.
