Russell Tovey Will Play A Closeted Gay Opposite Andrew Garfield; Barbra’s ‘Gypsy’ Is On Again
In an upcoming London revival of Tony Kushner‘s brilliant epic Angels in America, Andrew Garfield will play flamboyant Prior Walter, while Russell Tovey, whose shirtless torso has been known to cause audiences to faint, will take on the role of closeted Mormon Joe Pitt.
Barry Manilow (pictured above with event promoter Jeffrey Sanker) was a surprise attendee at White Party over the weekend. Queerty hears the legendary entertainer popped by the T Dance on Sunday with his hubby and longtime manager Gary Kief. It’s unknown how he obtained that pearl necklace.
